Re: Super Teams

According to Maxpreps, in 2012 there were 71 players on the Crespi varsity. TT took over in 2013, and you say they were down to 30 in 2014? Either well over half the team's parents were "idiots", or... :-k I don't know, what does maxpreps say the numbers were in 2014? The papers at the time dubbed ...

Re: Super Teams

that sure worked out at crespi. Crespi screwed up with Thomas. Pretty sure he didn't want to leave, even though the program was headed for lower levels. The freshman class was the best we've had in a while, and maybe Troy was learning the new curve with d___-head parents and their unfortunate affec...

Re: Bryce Young

Domingo, I'll ask you again, other than complaining, what is it you want? If it's that only white, Catholic, full-tuition, legacy kids be allowed to enroll at Mater Dei and go out for football, just say so. A rare stupid comment from MDDad. Where'd you get a race card comment from Domingo's posts? ...

Re: Bryce Young

watchersince68 posted a week or two ago "I would like to think that MD is the new SJB but as I have maintained from the beginning the lure of having high school's best QB was quite a draw and guys wanted to play with
him. With JT gone who knows what could happen."

Looks like "the lure" is back.

Re: Your cry for equality

Watcher - credofriar, I think, said in the same post or group of posts some weeks ago that Daniels was gone and the Cathedral QB was transferring in. You may be right about transfers wanting to play with an elite QB. MD football admin. might agree with that, thus the bringing in of the Cathedral guy...

Re: Your cry for equality

Seems like in the course of a week Mater Dei goes from #1 in the world to just another good high school football team. I said this game is cyclical and changes year to year sometimes week to week. The loss of your QB, Oline, 3 receivers and D standouts will change everything and your guys cried all...

Re: You won’t be missed JT

Sondheimer from LA Times is tweeting "Bryce Young from Cathedral is expected to transfer to Mater Dei" Boy, I bet that gets the professor's panties in a wad. I'm a novice in the machinations of the transfermania culture in HSFB, but when someone posted a Cathedral QB, highly regarded, was headed to...

Re: You won’t be missed JT

Sounds like credofriar knew this stuff somehow? Was he kidding about a Cathedral QB transfer to replace the USC bound JT?

So much back and forth on this subject. So much ignoring of valid points on both sides, and talking past other's posts. I've been on both sides of the fence with the team I've followed. Pride, Poise, and Courage have NOTHING to do with winning championships now....that's done by assembling all-stars...

Re: Mater Dei Monarchs 2017 CIF-SS Division 1 Champions

I'll watch MD with interest after reading that they need to replace their o line. If I had to bet, they won't skip a beat, and will repeat next year if their QB stays. As for the o line, any of the lower levels that won't step in capably will have their positions filled in with transfers to assure v...
