Can we please stop this kind of uninformed second-guessing? In early spring, Tesoro backed out of playing Mater Dei in Week 1. That left the Monarchs in a quandary because most schools already had their dance cards filled. A game with Saguaro was close, but then it fell through. Bishop Gorman was close, but fell through. Vista Murrieta was close to signing, but then cooled off. So did Narbonne.Playingtime wrote:MD over Mayfair---- Why Rollo?...

Mayfair was originally scheduled to play St. John Bosco. However, when Bosco got the opportunity to play St. Xavier, they graciously asked Mayfair if they would play Mater Dei instead, and Mayfair graciously accepted. That’s all there is to it. It was either Mayfair or a nine-game schedule. No sinister schemes to pad a schedule with an easy win, or to avoid tough teams. Sometimes you just have to dance with the ugly girl at the prom because all the pretty ones are taken.
