Re: Fire Coach Thomas

Ya, because you really have known the past four years what it is like to lose. Please Marina - by this comment, I'd say you probably don't know the history of the Celt/Servite connection. I know WELL what it's like to root for a losing football team. Before Troy Thomas took over, Crespi had gone 1-...

Re: Fire Coach Thomas

avon - I'm not an expert, but I'm pretty sure you don't know your ass from a hole in the ground

if you fire Troy maybe we can get him back up here, so I'll be ok if Servite and the Servite Nation agrees with you

a shocker tonight, though . . . . a real shocker

Re: Mater Dei vs. Servite - Live Updates

where is Servite's defense?

I don't think I'll ever predict another game after seeing this

wow - MD moving the ball as if Servite is not even there - would have bet a million bucks that couldn't happen

Re: Notre Dame 31 Servite 24

Edac - posts like your first last night on this game on an unfortunate blemish on the overall class of the Servite group. No props for the opponent, actually quite the opposite. Just complaints about how crappy the play or the game plan for the Friars was. IMO, you should cool down before you post t...

Re: Edison will win the Pac-5

Crespi got too little credit last year, they're getting too much this year. They must improve dramatically along the way or a first round exit in the playoffs, if they get there, is in order. Servite got the best of them, other than the score, and St. Bonaventure whacked 'em good. I'll be comforted ...

Re: Servite vs. ND of S.O.

Ventura I wouldn't say that is necessarily true.

Re: Servite vs. ND of S.O.

I hope Coach Thomas and Coah D play it close to the vest and not "show" anything. They have to know Rollo and his boys will be there observing every snap. Don't give 'em anything they're gonna see the week after. If it costs you a "W", so be it. Save it for when it counts. Don't think that's gonna ...

Re: Your least favorite politicians. Who are they?

The older I get the more I realize they are all different shades of the same color, judicial appointments aside (which, admittedly, are important). To one degree or another they want to grow government and take my hard earned money, forcing me to work that much more to make ends meet. As my 10 year ...

Re: Edison-Servite Supporting Luke Gane

I mean Charger/FRIAR What a great game to watch. Those were two very talented, very well coached teams. Had the long bomb for the Chargers late in the contest been completed, it could have been a different game. Edison is way better than I thought, and they bring the wood right with the Friars. Wish...

Re: National Rankings

If you ever get the chance to see stuff first hand that have a bearing on these rankings, you realize they don't mean much. Kudos to my Celts for their big plays against Servite, but as I've said in other posts, they were manhandled. I'll get a better take about how good Servite is when Crespi goes ...

They are big, strong, fast, and really well conditioned. And they can hit. Troy's Boy...

Red's an MD guy who likes to point fingers at other programs for having them do the exact same thing they do (albeit the other programs are now better at it than MD). However I didn't hear peep after the MD player transferred to help the basketball team in effect 20% of the starting basketball team...

Re: servite/crespi

Watching that Crespi / MD game on the FOX Sports replay kinda sucks...they cut out about 3-4 TD drives and jumped too far ahead. Yeah, if I recall, they cut to near the end of the game after Woods scored on a 50 yard run up the middle. That took the wind out of MD's sails and Crespi took it to them...
