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...

Re: Crespi...

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...

Re: Another Servite FB player transfers out

[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...

Re: Another Servite FB player transfers out

I agree very sad, they should of canned him after the WEEK 1, im still shocked as to why any school would hire a HC after intentially tanking a season, like he did to servite, blows my mind. The more i think about that BUM makes me want to puke. kids need to stay put at servite a real coach is on t...

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...

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.

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.
