#25 Bishop Gorman
#1 De La Salle
Those are some gutsy ambitions, out of all the Trinity League schools this team is definitely my question-mark.
Any Servite posters want to fill me in how exactly will they be next season?

I will bet you that Servite will not go 4-1 pre-league. Loser never post on this site again. Deal?
Servite has the talent to go undefeated this year, my reasoning is this years coach will use more then 5 plays and use all of his playmakers, wants to win and will do his best. If he was there last year servite would of easily been 6-4 or better.ventura wrote:I'm really interested in where Ghogh and Porkchop are getting their optimism. It would be a tall order for this Servite team to go 4-1 with this preseason. If you guys win two of those games I'd say you have a very competent first time head coach.
Non-servite people will say with our schedule going 4-6 would be a great year since it does include 4 teams in the nations Top 25. When the preseason polls came out we will be Top 10 in OC but predicted to be near the bottom if not the very bottom of the Trinity by the league coaches and OC Varsity. Like another poster said we will be the best 3-7 team in the nation.
Our two worst season were 90' and 04' when we were 2-8 (Toner both years). There is a chance it could be the same or worse this year.
Gorman-Top 25 in the nation. They are favored even if we have beat them on the lower levels. Game is in Vegas.
Poly-Top 25 in the nation. I agree Poly is not very good early in the year. But they return a lot of guys on a great defense. Will be preseason Top 2 in the Pac-5 polls. Poly is favored.
La Mirada-We "should" be favored. The never play tough teams and I think we will out physical them. Even with their 4 or so Div1 guys.
Edison-Servite guys predicting a win vs Edison tells me your not a real Servite guy OR a current player that doesn't get it. We have had some battles with Edison thru the years. This game is a toss up just like every year. Will be another hard fought battle game will be Edison's home game. If we loose to La Mirada Edison will be heavily favored. If we beat Gorman and/or Poly and La Mirada we will be favored.
DeLaSalle-Number 1 team in the nation. Their old coach is still there coaching RB. This program is not changing just because the HC has taken a smaller roll. All the same guys are on staff in their same rolls. DLS will be favored.
Mater Dei-Return a ton. Rivalry games can always go either way but MD will be favored.
SM-SM will be favored but we have a shot.
OLU-Preseason this would be a toss-up who would be favored. We have to find a way to stop their option because last year we had no idea. The only game OLU scored more than 2 TD's on offense was our game. Everybody else in the Trinity stuffed Peterson's triple option (including JSerra) besides us. Do we all of a sudden understand how to stop it?
JSerra-Preseason also a toss-up. Game is late in the year so JSerra should be beat up.
Bosco-Number 6 in the nation. SJB will be favored.
So honestly we are a Top 10 team in OC but will only be favored in no more than 3 games (JSerra, OLU and La Mirada) next year. JSerra (young skill talent), OLU (can we stop the triple option) and La Mirada (it will be their super bowl at their home) all have the talent to beat us. Dare I say I see a possible 0-10 season on our horizon.
I completely understand we have tons of talent. If we had JSerra's schedule I would predict a 7-3 record for us. But all these games against the top teams in the nation will take a toll on us.
There is no doubt we have talent. But we do not have the talent of Gorman, poly, dls, Bosco or md. Edison has far superior coaching. If we beat even one of those teams big kudos to our coaches and players. You thinking we are going to beat 3 or more of those teams is ridiculous.porkchop wrote:Credofriar, dls coach is not coaching rb's,i believe he is now doing something with the 49ers. I believe servite will be 8-2 or 9-1 come end of season. They could win all games depending on the dline. Servite offense has one of the best backs in the state,2 of the best receivers in the state, 4 returning olineman, Very athletic qb (waller)with good speed and a live arm. Dline has freshman all american at nose guard,great linebackers with alot of speed. 1 great corner and a great safety. begins aug 30th
Bishop Gorman doesn't rebuild, they re-load. They are literally being fed hoards of money by Gambling Casinos, filthy rich CEO alums, and the UFC itself. They are the only competitive private school in the ENTIRE state of Nevada; also take in to account they RECRUIT. (meaning they literally have the states population in the palm of their hands)
last time I checked, Bishop Gorman has four players rated on rivals while Servite has none. I don't see where you get the notion Gorman will be last years Servite team?
Bosco spanked Servite 38-13, and that same Bosco team returns even MORE starters (with 11 division 1 recruits) than Servite; this game already reeks of blow-out.
Poly shut down Bosco, and they return just as much if not more than Bosco. You can go from there Poly>Bosco>Servite
De La Salle may have their best offensive line in school history. Everybody comes back and they got a highly touted recruit transferring in. Their offense should be nightmare for other teams but their defense is a huge question mark. Nobody uses their players more efficiently than De La Salle. So unless you can beat those top 3 teams I mentioned don't even think about DLS. That program is just legendary.
At worst, 4-6 on the backend earning a playoff position., but I say 6-4 with a couple of pre-league wins.
