If we’re being THAT technical, the Monarch D actually only allowed SIX points ...
Missed PAT was probably karma in response to Chris Steele’s blatant clip in the back of an MD player at the start of McDuffie’s return.
or the multiple PI calls that were not called on Steele. Even JJ commented on the broadcast that Steele had McCoy's arm on a TD pass. But, the refs were letting them play for the most part.FatherSonHolyHldbcks wrote:Missed PAT was probably karma in response to Chris Steele’s blatant clip in the back of an MD player at the start of McDuffie’s return.
ALL true. And not just computer polls; with 2 more wins Braves would have topped EVERY SINGLE NATIONAL POLL. Was probably their most individually talented team ever.WantTheNFLBack714 wrote: overall, this has to be without a doubt, the most stinging loss for Bosco in the Negro-era, a national championship season ruined for them, because it was without a doubt, their best shot to finish the season number 1 in every computer poll, for some reason, I don't see Bosco having another chance like that for a while.
This one was defintely a CRUSHER. You could see it in Negro’s face postgame. Never seen him look more dejected. Choked out a laugh for Rollo at the postgame handshake, but when he had to take that runner up trophy it was like someone handed him soiled toilet paper. Even asked Fox to forego his postgame interview.
That had to be a LONGGGG holiday weekend for him back at the house in OC.
That was streamed live, postgame, in October, from the visitors locker room at the Bowl. Pretty sure Bru McCoy heard him through the wall.Credo ut intelligam wrote: I'm guessing that Chris Steele's opinion of Mater Dei won't be included in St. John Bosco's next High School Night recruiting video montage.

Look, I get it--many teenage boys are going to let an f-bomb fly out here and there. I did at 17. But to film it in his Bosco gear and on the Bosco campus and then broadcast it for the world to see and hear? What an embarrassment.

The Negros and Chris King are now 2-4 in their last 6 games against Rollo/EJ/Money, with 2 straight losses in the ‘ship.
Jason can look at it like this: when Bosco makes the next two CIF finals, he’ll have matched LeBron’s streak of 8 straight finals, and will probably have about the same 3-5 record. #StriveForGreatness #TrustTheProcess
Yes, taken to school, when you’re averaging over 50 PPG and beating opponents by 40 PPG, and then you score 1 offensive TD, none in the last 40+ minutes, get severely out-schemed and outcoached in the BIG championship, score 13 total points, and choke away one of the biggest games in school history to your biggest rival in a revenge game with the nation watching. #Facts
You think they’ll have a ceremony in Panish Family Stadium when those “2018 Trinity Champs” rings come in?
EJ’s “gameplan” in the 2017 title game was “go embarrass them, this is a gigantic mismatch.” 2018 was a bit different.
Just for once in my life-time, i'd like to see a high school from the Southern California region, win a national championship besides MD, because when MD won it last year 2017(and they might win it again this year), it was the first time a team from the Southern California region won it all since the 1996 MD team. Because the 2013 Bosco team didn't finish number 1 in every poll.
So they say the 2017 MD team is the best in CIF history, so that would mean state history as well. I wonder which Texas HS FB team is considered to be the best in their state history, i'd love to see that Texas team vs the 2017 MD team, that would be a grudge match, all-out war, it would be an evenly matched fight such as between a Lion and a Tiger. Incredible Hulk vs. Juggernaut.
Easy ... Allen still has to win 4 more games (16 total) to even be in the final conversation, and wasn’t dominant in their last game. They are facing the best of the best in Texas 6A Division 1. Driving up to 5 hours to play some of their playoff games. Certainly not a given.
That would be a great matchup. Both likely start in the National top 10 preseason 2019. St Louis just won its third straight Hawaii D1 title, has won 27 straight games, and is going to finish top 7 at worst in the Maxpreps rankings. Also have a lot coming back, including QB Jayden DeLaura and major LB recruit Jordan Botelho.
I don’t know if Rollo is interested in finding a booster to subsidize flying 120 people within the program to Honolulu like Negro did, but if he finally signed on for the Gorman game out of state, maybe he’ll go for a little Aloha spirit. They could get ESPN to televise and foot the bill.
Tua was a sophomore playing his 3rd varsity game ever in that Bosco game. He didn’t even start. He played less than half the snaps, rotating with a senior. That was also easily the worst St Louis team in the last 5 years: finished with 4 losses, didn’t even make the state tournament that year! That was a mediocre win for a loaded Bosco team (with Josh Rosen), at best.
Mililani this year wasn’t even the 2nd best team in Hawaii; they not only lost the state final to St Louis by 3 TDs, they also lost to Punahou High by 3 scores. And they didn’t beat a soul outside of Oahu; of their 10 wins, 6 were round robin island matchups where they beat the same team TWICE.
Indeed. Mililani was a great team when stars like McKenzie Milton, Vae Malapeai and Palaie Gaoteote were there 4 years ago. But in 2018 that was a cupcake win for maybe the most loaded Bosco team ever. Total Mismatch.
Best team in Texas history was 1978 Stratford SpartansWantTheNFLBack714 wrote:I wonder which Texas HS FB team is considered to be the best in their state history,
in a 15-0 season, the Spartans scored 532 points, second-best at the time in the history of Texas’ largest high school classification (now known as Class 5A), and held nine opponents to a touchdown or less. They ran the wishbone to perfection, totaling more than 7,000 yards, and their best runner set a 4A single-season rushing record.
Stratford beat 1976 state champion San Antonio Churchill 24-7 in the semifinals, 1977 champion Plano 29-13 in the title game and 1975 winner Port Neches-Groves in the regular season. It also beat Memorial, which advanced to the 1979 state final and lost to Temple, in the 1978 regular season.
Don’t worry, Bosco will be loaded again on offense and surely will ... ummm ... somehow find a way to fill the loss of 9 starters on D. I’m sure they’re working on that as I type.
They will be California preseason #1, the state title favorite again, and preseason top 5 in the country ... as long as DJ comes back for his redshirt senior year.
Ya, if not Bosco, at least another high school in California, especially Southern California, win another National title or just a National title besides MD.
the 2017 MD team, was that team mainly loaded on offense or defense, the players MD lost to graduation from the 2017 MD team, was it mostly on offense or defense?
Nope...see 2001 DLS...or 2003 DLS...or 2000 DLS...or 2002 DLS...orWantTheNFLBack714 wrote:So they say the 2017 MD team is the best in CIF history, so that would mean state history as well.
"How stupid is our country?"
Mater Dei lost all but Shakobe Harper, Myles Murao and (11 personnel starter) Mike Martinez off that offense. They also lost the entire DL of 3 D1 FBS signees, LBs Jack Genova and Solo Tuliaupupu, and CB Stephon Robins.
The fact they won back to back against a Goliath Bosco team, after losing that much talent off likely the best team California has ever seen - literally a dozen D1 caliber graduates - would be unbelievable to pretty much everyone ... if they hadn’t backfilled them with double digit transfers. And if they weren’t doing so to keep pace with the Bosco model. Hence most of the discussion on the board in the last 10-plus months.
According to an OBJECTIVE source, 2006 Southlake Carroll is Texas’ best team in the last 15 years (and #2 overall nationally) (per Maxpreps). Carroll’s 2004 team (led by Bears QB Chase Daniel) and 2005 team (led by former Alabama QB Greg McElroy) also made the top 10.
Mater Dei 2017 was ranked #1 of all teams in that period. SJB 2013 was ranked #6. DLS 2003, the last team of The Streak, is conspicuously missing from the list.

Wow, if that's true, that's even worse than I originally thought. I sincerely hope the young man learns a little humility, since that October game may very well have been the high point of his athletic career. There are so many obstacles along the rest of the way, but when you're young you don't know what you don't know.FatherSonHolyHldbcks wrote:That was streamed live, postgame, in October, from the visitors locker room at the Bowl.

This total lack of respect for your opponent is an attitude that comes from the top--or is at the very least tolerated by the coaching staff and administration. It's hard to imagine Coach Negro was unaware of this social media posting. Any Servite kid who did that would find himself suspended from school, and rightly so. I'd be in favor of sitting such a kid for at least a game until he expressed some big-time contrition for the way he brought discredit to the school.
May this "troll video" be a relatively harmless lesson in the school of hard knocks. That kind of attitude will never allow his athletic ability to take him where it could.
