The Black is Back

Post by watchersince68 » Sat Sep 14, 2013 9:39 am

It is becoming increasing clear that Servite having beat yet another preseason ranked team in La Mirada and having beat LBP handily last week and LBP beating Centennial that Servite should be second in the State rankings. Servite having endured only a opening day loss to Nevada #1 BG and getting the jitters out are
definitely BACK. MD however struggled in their lucky win against Carson ( 2 fumbles and mediocre passing attack ) so The Men in Black deserve to be #2, give credit where credit is due.

Servite should be moving up in the rankings but not to #2. They do still have a loss on there record. As fun as it is to figure out who should be higher for teams in the Trinity league this is all prep work. I know they have a new coach and did not have a good 2012 season but come on every year they should be in the playoff hunt due to there tradition, top players wanting to go there and scholarships to top athletes. We should only be surprised when they don't do well. A win against LM was good but I think 90% of us predicted a win for the Friars.

Poly was a great win, but La Mirada is a terrible team that was blown out by Tesoro and lost to La Habra. They are now 0-3.

Seeing as Margarita took BG to OT and they blew out Servite...If Servite can remain the same team that beat Poly, they will be a dangerous team.

But it's too early to say that. I do hope they crush Edison though.

Nice clown face.

Not the stupidest, just reiterating what Servite boosters have been claiming all along or have you been missing the posts?

Watcher,
Something to pass along to who ever, when a lower ranked team upsets a higher ranked team, lets say #10 beats #2, the upset does not mean that #10 is now #2. The loss is more about #2 projected ranking being too high, not #10 being too low. # 10 does not get to leap over #3,4,5,6,7, so on. All of those teams get to move up if they won their games.

The win for # 10 just means they will get to move up at least 1 spot.

Also, football has a lot of upsets. Where a # 20 team can beat a # 2 team on any given night, but generally the lower ranked team is not thought of being able to beat them more than 1, 2 or 3 times out of 10, and are so judged. As I said, the upset speaks more about the higher ranked team being too high, more than it is the lower ranked team being too low. It usually takes more consistent wins against higher ranked teams to actually move up.

And that is not a preseason ranked team either, but teams who are winning in the season.

Lucky win for Mater Dei? Carson gets 26 offensive yards. Lucky defense? Find a way to gloat without putting another team down. Actually, when I read the title of the thread, I wasn't surprised.

Servite isn't even full strength yet, and they are still figuring things out. Can't wait to see how they look with everyone healthy, although that might be a tall order.

And I agree, if they had had a game under their belt before playing Gorman that might have been a different ball game.

LH, Im just surprised that an MD homer has to start a thread about Servite when there hasn't been any threads about MD recently. It seems like the MD posters have gone radio silent. We need Ramon back !!

Now this post makes sense. Servite continues to improve each week and will probably realize their potential by playoffs - if they make it. If Servite can lock up their D, the O has enough weapons, size and strength to score points. Servite isn't back, but on track. The problem is SM and MD aren't backing down either.

Defense is definitely the weakness so far. Seems like week to week there are different defensive guys lining up so it's obvious they are trying to figure things out. Guys are playing out of position so you can expect them to struggle until they find the right mix.

La Mirada was gashing them directly up the middle and there were a ton of missed tackles. They need to work on that. I noticed Andrew Moore was put in on the DL and at LB maybe to get something going, but he's not a regular defender.

Kudos to Red for putting a gloating MD homer in his place…right Red?

Forgot you are a Servite grad and only understand foul language and 5th grade level writing. Poly is the high school Servite beat, then Servite won another game but on some rankings Servite is still ranked behind poly. Rodney Dangerfield was a comic for decades, you may remember him in caddy shack, his entire comic gig was "I get no respect". So the point being made was that Servite is getting no respect when they deserve it.

Does that help or are you going to find a strange video on utube to post in response?
