The cupboard is bare, but there is something in the air. How QUICKLY things turned last time, how RAPIDLY Servite ascended to dominance, including the long awaited spanking of the Monarchs. The landscape is clearly different now and the ways in which championship teams are developed has morphed. IF you will "play the game" and become a destination for mercenary athlete-students, you can get there...and you can get there quickly.
I think that they will and that Troy has the formula. Despite his relative lack of success at Crespi, I believe he (and the administration, boosters, and alumni) know what it will take and are committed to the process. And not the process of being a nice, little team that tries hard, wins non-league games, and gets taken to the woodshed during league. A team that breaks hats, is painful to play against, and WINS....all the time. He has learned from miscues of his past, including adversarial relationships and spurious decisions to hire and fire. Servite has learned from its failures and come to appreciate the value of the program and what it does for the school. And they have come to value and appreciate TROY for what he brought....something they never had before and haven't sniffed since.
It started a few weeks ago and wheels have been in motion behind the curtain. When that curtain opens, y'all better be wearing your blue blockers because the Kracken will emerged unscathed, stronger, and bloody as hell from the womb of Hades to shower down the PAIN upon all who get in her way.
Servite was 5th last year, but is the early pre-season pick to finish 6th this season. No where to go but up from there.
I was talking about this year, right now the preseason Trinity looks like the Friars are coming out of the gate at 6th. Thats what I was referring. Basing it on last year is irrelevant with all the defections of prime time players.Professor Fate wrote:Servite was 5th last year, but is the early pre-season pick to finish 6th this season.

C18 - whoa. Cockroachesque.
"How stupid is our country?"
Smog off the 5.
Now we are talking about weight room mildew in those adolescent nostrils. Geez, I love Troy. Really -- no BS. This is me talking. He is a walking, talking, short-torsoed, socially awkward reality show.
The Cleveland Browns think Troy struggled at Crespi.
3-7. 2018 AND 2019. Got it booked. But after that, yeah, maybe, womb of Hades and pain shower.
Hes going to need to get the men in the trenches like the guys he had in Troy Nikolas, etc..
Players on defense like Matty Ice Inmann, Cody Frajardo at QB.
It looks like JSERRA is getting pieces to be the 3rd best in the Trinity, or beating OLU for that spot?
Nobody is really talking about Santa Margarita or Servite, what they actually have to make the case as a contender not a pretender.
I think losing JT is going to be alot bigger than people think.
hit the lights
That's a valid take. Could be balanced out by Bosco losing the heart of their defense in Woodbey, Blaylock, and Gilbert. And the only Bosco Offensive Coordinator that's ever had any sustained success against Mater Dei. That's probably a lot bigger than people think as well.
