Re: Bill Knudson joins Thomas at Crespi.

Lots of Servite fans are spoiled brats with short memories.

Re: Servite to play four Top 25 Pre-season Teams

I don't think Ghogh, Porkchop or anyone else predicting great success for the Friars are being fair to a new HC playing six or seven of the top schools in the west, with a team coming off a 4-6 season. He could well fall very flat in his first season, and if Ghogh and Porkchop & Co come down hard on...

Re: Servite to play four Top 25 Pre-season Teams

I'm really interested in where Ghogh and Porkchop are getting their optimism. It would be a tall order for this Servite team to go 4-1 with this preseason. If you guys win two of those games I'd say you have a very competent first time head coach.

Re: servite spring football

One more thing - the bagpipes are Troy's idea - Crespi never had them before he was head coach. Snap drills have been a Celt trademark since 1964, though.

Re: servite spring football

My two cents is that it was never about money. I think Thomas left Crespi and got a pay cut when he went to Servite. If there was a wide disparity in the current pay at the respective schools, perhaps that had something to do with it, but I don't think that's the case. I don't know Troy personally s...

Re: servite spring football

I've followed Servite's rise. While next year could be a giant ?, I would tend against optimism. Servite was in tough times before TT. We will see if, as some have suggested, he benefited from good timing talent-wise upon his arrival in 2005, but I doubt it. Even if there is tons of talent returning...

Re: Servite's new Football Staff

The guy just got hired. Wow. Give him some time.

Sometimes I wonder if a Servite HC has much more outside pressure than the already unreasonable hassles that go with a Pac 5 head coaching position.

Re: Actual servite head job thread

Lionhunter - It would be hilarious if Mack was hired by Servite. How about a playoff game under that scenario, vs. Crespi? Mack is a solid Catholic guy, but I don't know how he'd fit with the Servite "formation"program so widely discussed on this board. His strength, IMO, is attracting talent. He ha...

Re: Servite Head Coach Candidates?

He just did not want to be there anymore, I said earlier he tanked the season from the start. There is no reasonable explanation why a coach of his status would drop off the map in such a horrible way. He did a fine job of making sure he was not comming back . And yes I know what his record was the...

Re: Servite Head Coach Candidates?

Oh, win. OK.

Ghogh - you probably explained it earlier, but I can't recall. Why didn't Thomas want to win last year? Hoping to get fired, and hired somewhere else? Or just piss people off? Prove some sort of point?

Re: Actual servite head job thread

Ghogh - the memory is bad, but weren't you the guy riding Thomas for years? Wanting him to leave? I thought sure you were a giant TT detractor. If so, it's funny that you'd jump all over him when you got what you wanted. I read these threads and wonder if the parents are anything like some of these ...

Re: Actual servite head job thread

Re the new hire, I keep thinking an announcement is imminent. I know they want to be diligent, but isn't it getting kind of late? I wonder if there is a short list at this time. Also, is Servite's preseason set in stone? I know Crespi has finalized playing Bishop Gorman for two years. They wouldn't ...

Re: Crespi...

Crespi never should have lost to Amat. That was ridiculous. I agree Haroof, and wonder if you saw that game. ND/Crespi is a mini Servite/MD, and really strange things happen with the two teams, so I give Crespi a pass on losing that game, even though they completely self destructed after taking a 1...

Re: Crespi...

cruiser - educated guess on my part is that Crespi is changing their philosophy on recruiting in connection with how much money they are willing to spend second, lots of alumni and long time supporters were never happy Thomas left, and may have been pressuring the school to get him back - it was oft...

this guy's photoshopping is legendary on the scout.com site - he's pretty funny Re Crespi's season last year, it sure is strange how things happen. Their losses were 1) to archrival ND at their field, in 4 overtimes. In the third overtime, Crespi's defense held to no points, and despite a severely s...

[quote="GHOGH"][/quote] Ghogh - No, none of those things sound like a coach who wants to win. I'm just wondering WHY he didn't want to win. Or if he wasn't going to let his skill players out there if they had an attitude problem, regardless of the outcome of the season. You mention the possibility t...
