Re: Troy Thomas Resigns as Head Coach

Well, from the looks of it, the football program has highs and lows. By this past trend, Servite will be good again...in 2042! With that said, I enjoyed the 8 year ride with Troy Thomas. He is a good football coach and he will do well at his alma mater. I'm actually glad he's back at Crespi. I just...

Re: Troy Thomas Resigns as Head Coach

It's a bad move by him. Top football in LA isn't that good anymore . Too many Hispanics and not enough African Americans in the area. Orange County, as evidenced by 7 of the last 8 finalist coming out of Orange County, is where good HS football is played in SoCal. An LA county team hasn't made the ...

Re: Troy Thomas Resigns as Head Coach

Whoa. Reread Celtasaurus. Read Edac's reply. Devastating to the Thomas detractors. You know edac, reading some of the stuff through the years, I was wondering if Thomas is different than what I have been exposed to since '93, when I first saw him coach. I think you were among the Servite skeptics at...

Re: Troy Thomas Resigns as Head Coach

Patty - Wow. Thanks for taking the time. That was one terrible story, and I realize now Crespi IS a dump, and the people involved there are whatever you said they were. I was pretty sure your story was the reason you made that ridiculous statement about Crespi. I remembered someone taking the time t...

Re: Troy Thomas Resigns as Head Coach

Ghogh - If I remember correctly, that schedule is the most brutal I've seen, by far. Tough for a new coach to get in there this late and deal with that, IMO.

I would also just like to say that Crespi is a terrible school filled with terrible people. This really has nothing to do with Troy Thomas, Crespi just sucks as a school. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------...

Re: Troy Thomas Resigns as Head Coach

Lots of interesting Servite give and take, as usual. I'm curious to know if Servite's schedule for the coming season is set in concrete, or if it's possible to amend in view of this development.

Re: Tonight's Scores

Serra League (Alemany,Loyola, Bishop Amat) goes 0-3. So much for it being equal to the Trinity League which goes 3-0. Outsider - whoever said Serra=Trinity hasn't been paying much attention the last few years. I'm really surprised about Loyola, though. They were probably beat up from their OT victo...

Re: Pac 5 playoffs

A quick note from up north - all you guys have Loyola beating Crespi. I think that's wrong. If the turnover battle is even or better for the Celts, they win this Friday. The Celts played Alemany very even two weeks ago, when the Warriors had two weeks rest and Crespi was coming off a very physical b...

Monster upset for Rollo. Or was it? Was SM ever for real or is this another typical soft SM Eagle Team? I tend to think SM is a good football team but certainly overrated. Now watch as ALL the frontrunning MD Fans come out of the woodwork and jump for joy! The same ones that had nothing to say when...

I'm talking about this thread, and joefutbal/trinityflb's comments.

I thought I was clear in my post that Bosco was coming up a...

Re: Servite - La Habra updates

It took La Habra over 46 minutes to get into the end zone. Servite mistakes and horrible officiating kept it close. Ridiculously bad calls both ways, but those phantom holding calls killed Servite. I'll have to give it another look, Joe. My tape ran out with a couple minutes to go and I didn't see ...

Either La Habra is great or Servite's in trouble. That was an even game, IMO.

Re: Servite/De La Salle aftermath

Couldn't agree more. Atgreek and MDDad - Thomas is still pretty young. He's turned two terrible programs around completely in his ten or so years as head coach, learning a lot along the way. You've got to have a school administration and parent pool to do what Ladouceur has done, and I wonder if Se...

My jaw kept dropping lower and lower watching the first two and a half quarters on the TV last night. And for any of you trying to give lame ass excuses of ANY kind, have some self respect and just give 100% props to the victor. Though I didn't see it, I understand CC got a healthy dose of humble pi...

Re: Alemeny Indians plan ambush to scalp Friars at Bird Doo

I agree with a few others on here that you Servite guys are pretty full of yourselves. All I have to go on is the Servite vs MD game, replayed last week on Fox.  Maybe I'm missing something but I've watched that game 4 times.  You guys must have really improved since then...  Each time I watch it I...
