Well, did not see THAT coming ...

Postby NotDonaldBren » Thu Feb 15, 2018 6:42 pm

"And the new Head Coach of YOUR Long Beach Poly Jackrabbits ... a coach from a D7 Episcopal school in south Orange County with no discernible ties to Long Beach!! #ALLPOLY #FUNKhouse #3StripeLife"

Wish I could have been at THAT press conference.

Congrats to Stephen Barbee. Did a helluva job under tough circumstances at St. M's in 2014, going 15-0 before losing in the state game. Defensive guy, seems to be a solid coach. Actually didn't even coach last season for whatever reason (Albano says he was "replaced on an interim basis").

However ... the jump from playing Crean Lutheran and Calvary Chapel to Mater Dei and Bosco is IMMENSE. Not to mention going from trying to get a couple kids that would have gone to Tesoro or San Juan Hills, to trying to keep Bosco, Narbonne and Serra from taking most of the top players within your area reach.

Out of the box hire by the LBP admins for sure. I'm not saying Poly MEANT to hire the anti-Antonio Pierce, but ...

Coach B has a tough road ahead with all the obstacles Poly is facing lately. Lots of school district strife, AP and staff clearly wanted out, and they didn't even field a JV team last season. Good luck to him. Much like Coach Sweatbox returning to Servite, this should be nothing if not interesting.

Barbee only coached a couple early pre-season games last year. He was hit in the head by an errant football at practice and had major medical issues (head trauma) from that. Missed the rest of the season.

Geez. Glad to see him back and healthy then.

Now that he's been successful getting this big of a gig, I wonder if Barbee would have gotten the Servite job had they not forced out Meyer specifically to get Troy back COUGH COUGH ... I mean, if the timing hadn't lined up with Troy leaving Crespi and Servite randomly deciding to move in a new direction.

The entire thread had 10 words in it. It was deleted because it was a waste of internet.

I thought I saw something but then it disappeared. Too interesting of a story connecting OC and LA/Long Beach football not to have something up about it (or have some fun with it).

But yes indeed, you are (occasionally) the Adrian Wojnarowski of the OC Connect HS board. :notworthy:

Didn`t realize that I had to craft the perfect post. Now what would be the ideal length of a post? I ask this so I may improve the likelihood that people will read or engage with it. Can you please put together a complete guide with the character length, so this does not happen to me again? I thought my post was short and concise and it grabbed my audience’s attention. How wrong I was. :eh?:

This is a discussion board. We use words to express ourselves. That thread wasn't much more than a series of grunts.

He better. Or at least some assistants with an idea of how to make moves up there. Bosco and Narbonne representatives have been DM'ing every prospect LBP has for the last 2 months.

But then again, what about TJ Houshmanzadeh?? Can't just displace him. Or did he follow Claiborne up to Calabasas?
