MD vs St John's

Postby watchersince68 » Mon Sep 23, 2019 1:41 pm

Watched IMG play St John's, SJ's looks very average. Am I missing something? They have 2w and 3l.
Any reason they should have been nationally ranked? What do you think?

I think they have lost to IMG, St. Josephs Prep, and Duncanville. All top national teams

Have you watched the video of them playing IMG? I know IMG can make any team look bad but to me the QB
for SJ was just ok, did not seem west coast quality.

I have not watched much film on them. But, they will be hungry to win after losing to Duncanville and IMG. You can't say they are not "battle tested!" :lol:

I think the play St. Francis after MD (Ouch!)

Their home stadium is one sided and small surrounded by lots of trees and a large shed. Surely not what I would expect.

The site of the Mater Dei game is not at their home field.

Careful, watcher. SJ's only trailed IMG by a point heading into the 4th qtr. This could be a classic trap game if the MD players lose focus...

Yeah St. Johns is no joke. They have the hardest schedule in the country MD has the second hardest schedule. St. Johns has been in every game only to fall off late they were actually down 21 points to St. Joes and came back only to fall a little short. If MD takes this team lightly they will get slapped. St. Johns has some dudes and they have a better QB than St. Frances and 3 good RBs. St. Johns is currently ranked 30th but there is no way there are 29 teams better than them Nationally. These guys play hard and play to the final whistle. MD better come to play.

MD is on a mission. They don't have the makings of a program that will have a let down, especially travelling across the country to play on ESPN.

MD by 20.

For what it’s worth (probably nothing) one of the oddsmakers that does high school games has Mater Dei as a 24.5 point favorite

24.5 sounds about right.

If that Bosco game was played on Friday night, instead of Saturday I think it would have been a different outcome.. but hey, it didn't happen that way.. the energy on Saturday for MD was sucked out of the stadium, it was a weird feeling, The pre-game vibes was off, different from the night before, and even the MD tailgate was half ass, no one was there.. But I believe this team is a different group than last year. I think they learned from last years. But they are still HS kids so will see..

It was Saturday for both teams, Bosco showed up to play and MD didn't, period.


I think they learned from last years

I hope you're right. SJ certainly isn't Bosco, but with the cross-country travel (a first for MD?), the sight-seeing, the cameras and the scouts, we'll see...

St. Johns has a very good team. They have lost to St. Joseph's, Duncanville and IMG. I believe only the Duncanville game they were never in the game.

MD seems healthy, focused and Bryce has been in the zone. Bryce is a much better passer this season and he's running more when the receivers are not open. The only weakness MD has is running game and that's only if you compare it to the past few seasons. I've been impressed with the other non-starters for MD that have stepped up for depth. Dean Neeley has made some great plays too! :thumbsup:

Omar, any game can be a trap game if you are not focused. :lol:

It's hard to replace Harper but with that being said this year we have 3 very good backs. They just haven't been showcased with the "air raid" attack.
