SBVC, Victor Valley face tough road

The football teams from Victor Valley College and San Bernardino Valley College both have started the season 0-2 and each is likely to be 0-3 after this week.

Victor Valley has to go play on the road against the most formidable foe in the South in Mt. SAC. SBVC will be at home against Saddleback, which was the preseason conference favorite in a poll of member coaches.

The restructuring of the conferences and new playoff format has those in the lower division such as SBVC and Victor Valley playing all three nonconfence games against teams in the upper division. So they’re supposed to go 0-3.

The rally cry is has to be “Wait until we get to conference play.”

Well SBVC and Victor play each other the first game of American Division, Mountain Conference play the following. So someone will probably be 0-4. It will be hard to rally the troop at that point.

SBVC is really looking for something positive. It has seven straight losses, going back to the last five games last year. And the Wolverines were never in the two games they have played so far this season.

Coach Pat Meech has his work cut out for him.
