I would say he is a huge factor for MD's return to dominance.

If they're planning on continuing to go in the direction of Mater Dei and Bosco then they have the right man for the job. And he's a pretty damn good coach anyway. If they had half the talent on the lines as the other teams in league they would have been semifinalists this year.SERVITE888 wrote:Seriously, where is servite headed ? Are we keeping coach Meyer?

Mater Dei did not reach out to Scot. He approached Mater Dei twice about the position before he was hired. Troy Thomas knew about the process and gave his approval before any interviews were conducted.WantTheNFLBack714 wrote:Rollo blew up the program after the 2011 season right? when MD missed the playoffs for the first time since 1986? so i'm guessing MD reached out to Scot Prohaska and offered him more money, or a fallout with the Servite administration.
Not so sure about the worst players in stated positions. Servite had some decent to very good players at the mentioned positions to include a LB with 25 or more D1 offers. QB was also very talented. The issue at Servite continues to be line play related to being undersized on the O and D line. Also, a safety that I think was was new to Servite who came along toward the end of the season.joefutbol wrote:Like I said, if they had half the talent on the lines...... Kind of hard to stop an offense when your front seven is nonexistent. Servite had the worst QB, RB, O line, and linebackers in the league and still managed to win a league game and nearly knock off the #19 team in the country. The other teams have better players. What do you expect him to do?
But even before this year's 2017 MD team, MD had always had a more decorated football program than Servite's football program, comparing MD's football program's history to Servite's football history is like comparing USC football to UCLA football, who are also huge rivals. But I would say the reason why it probably stings Servite fans a lot, is because when Scot Prohaska and Troy Thomas, Matt Mitchell were at Servite, Servite was never able to be a National Champion like this year's MD team was, and the MD teams of the 90's, and Bosco of 2013. Since the highest Servite has ever been in the National rankings is number 3 in the Nation, the early 80's Servite teams and the 2009 Servite team.
Oh well, maybe someday.
