Re: What will the PAC-5 play-off bracket look like?

Omar - it's all about having the best teams get to the playoffs.

Curious - if Servite wins, what will you say?

Any way you slice it, LPPoly is not too happy with this draw.

Santa Margarita at Crespi

Crespi's strength is defense. If SM has a stout front 7 the Celts will have trouble moving the ball in their veer. The Celts passed the ball with some success early in the year, but not in the last four or five contests, where they threw little or not at all. Checking SM's record they look like a ve...

Re: What will the PAC-5 play-off bracket look like?

Luca and Friar - Mission League homer here. I've been watching the Trinity League wax the Mission/Serra League for ten years. Until the trend changes my opinion is Trinity is in a class by themselves. And I don't particularly like OC football. Fact is, Servite is a much better contest for LPB than A...

Re: Will AJ Gass be back next year?

Doing the coaching merry-go-round is risky business. Take a page from Notre Dame in Sherman Oaks - if Gass has coaching chops let him settle in if he's devoted to Servite football. Rooney at ND was not a winning coach for a long, long time. For decades now he's gotten the best out the talent he's de...

Re: Does Servite Still have a chance for Pac-5 At-Large?

It's not fair for such a talented group like LBPoly to be so rested and healthy entering the playoffs every year.

Re: Does Servite Still have a chance for Pac-5 At-Large?

beerseach - I'm not posting to agree or disagree I watched Servite play two or three games, and I do think they could give any of the top three in Mission a run for their money, is all I'm saying - the way the guys in charge choose at large give us all something to get into arguments over. So could ...

Re: Does Servite Still have a chance for Pac-5 At-Large?

Hey OC nuts. I posted this on scout: The at large system is too complicated for me to figure out. The OC boards, pdt and some others know so much more about it than I do, and they are having trouble figuring out who goes. There is a chance that any of the three teams trying for Mission League champi...

Re: Mater Dei, the only team in Socal with a Defense this ye

Crespi is the anti-Bosco. After many, many transfers out, TT has very few players. The guys remaining are good athletes, and they've worked their butts off for the last year preparing for this. Come what may, they have already traveled very far from the 4-7 team last year. And their defense is very ...

Tom - your comment makes me anxious for Crespi to take down Alemany, get to the playoffs, and have MD face Troy Thomas' Crespi defense.

Re: PAC 5 Wildcard

Definitely a flawed system. I do think that whatever they come up with for at large will be argued about, though. JSerra should have gotten in over Crespi in 2013 - look what happened to the Celts against MV - running clock. Celts had a couple good wins but were not a good team last year. Crespi had...

Re: What if Troy Thomas was still at Servite?

"Thomas has no personality" A little harsh, no Joe? Yeah, all this has been discussed, over and over. I followed the program through the years and when there was a tiny crack in the dominance of Servite, many were out for blood. It is incredibly hard, IMO, to win in the Trinity. Thomas was...

Re: Best HSFB Posters?

Great thread. Impressive memories from lots of posters. The OC kind of bugs me. With notable exceptions, they generally give Crespi beatdowns, and the HSFB board puts anything we have up here to shame (SFV/Ventura County). I have to lurk on here for passionate, intelligent HSFB insight. Kind of bugs...

Re: Crespi Hut Drill?

I thought Thomas brought the drill to Servite. The Celt poster is right about Becker bringing it to Crespi, but wrong about the date - I saw it as a kid in 1965. Yeah, I was 9, but I was stoked on it. Never occurred to me that the players hate it. You'd think a coach might get that vibe. Always thou...
