In all fairness, revoltes, part of the fun of being a fan and a poster is making predictions. Servite supporters have monopolized this forum for two months with their overzealous enthusiasm and predictions for next year. I don't think it's out of line for the supporter of another program to do the same.

SJB has a couple advantages over MD this year. First, the game will be at Bosco. Second, SJB is finally over the hump as far as MD being in their heads. Bosco has beaten MD now two years in a row, both home and away.

I think both teams will be very talented, but home field advantage could be the difference. We all know MD is a better team at home. The biggest question for Bosco will be Oline depth. Even though technically they return four of the starting five OL from last year they are not as deep there as they want to be.

But, their defense and their skill positions will be better than anyone in the Trinity.

AT this point in time, 7 or 8 of their starting 11 defenders have D1 offers, and all are returning starters from last year. The one Dlineman without an offer is probably the best high school player of the bunch but doesn't have the size for the next level.

I agree. With all the transfers, injuries, mistakes and bad calls still to occur, the smart money in May should be on Long Beach Poly and St. John Bosco to meet in the finals.

What else are message boards for if not shameless, blind support and ridiculous predictions?

I seriously believe that Servite will be better though. This isn't saying that the other Trinity League teams will be terrible. I expect each game to be a knock down drag out affair. I'll make a ridiculous prediction of 7-3 and at least one playoff win.

Not ridiculous at all. Who will they beat and to whom will they lose? In your opinion, of course.

That's a tough schedule. Lots of those games could go either way. It'll be entertaining in any event.

Agreed. And mind you I'm not saying these games are automatics. I expect hard fought victories in each game. Many of them will come down to the 4th Q.

Pretty optimistic for team with a head coach who has a total of two years experience coaching high school football…as an assistant.

Kalil makes up for the lack of experience Gass has and together with servites talent they will be very good

Often times a head coach is only as good as his staff. How good would MD be with Rollo and no Dave Money?

I've followed Servite's rise. While next year could be a giant ?, I would tend against optimism. Servite was in tough times before TT. We will see if, as some have suggested, he benefited from good timing talent-wise upon his arrival in 2005, but I doubt it.

Even if there is tons of talent returning, and even if the new HC is all the optimists hope he is, he still has to get his feet wet for the first time against very good competition, and against many of the best, experienced coaches. If you guys are reasonably competitive in each game, you should be happy, IMO, regardless of the record after all.

I loved the Servite tradition in the few games I've seen over recent years, and have been envious of the fan support. It was a crack up watching the 1962 game with Crespi's juniors and sophs going against them in Encino, on youtube.

I hope the Friars stay competitive.

The OC and DC have no experience either. I like what I know of Gass, but it is unfair to ask anyone to coach this schedule and in this league with limited coaching experience. I hope I’m wrong.

I have a bad feeling. Inexperienced head coach and coordinators will have growing pains. People dreaming of 7 wins are overly optimistic. 5 wins is a great season this year. I predict 3-7, but a better 3-7 than last year if that makes any sense. Last year's 3-7 was embarassing in terms of how the team looked. I just cant expect a guy who has never called plays before to be really good at it right away. Most coordinators take time to understand the flow of the game and to understand situationally what plays work in what types of situations. Game experience teaches you that and the Servite staff has zero experience. Welch, Rollo and the others have been in every game situation conceivable in HS football and have dealt with HS level kids for years. You learn lots from that.

What’s your definition of “very well”?
