CIF-SS semifinal predictions

I had a horrible week last week. Maybe I think too much (probably not) or maybe I think I know more than I actually do (probably).

Here’s what I have this week, for better or for worse.

Ed McMillon steps down as Jurupa Hills football coach

Jurupa Hills is looking for its second head football coach in school history after Ed McMillon stepped down this week, a little more than a week after the Spartans were eliminated from the CIF-SS Inland Division playoffs in the first round.
“I think it was mutual. Maybe I overstayed a little bit,” McMillon said.

McMillon started the Jurupa Hills program, playing almost entirely a varsity schedule with just freshmen and sophomores in the Mountain Valley League in 2010, and compiled a 32-35 record in six seasons.
The high point was in 2013, when the Spartans won the Mountain Valley League and CIF-SS East Valley Division title. Jurupa Hills also made the playoffs each of the last four years McMillon was at the helm including the last two after moving to the San Andreas League.
“Of course winning CIF was big,” McMillon said. “But I’m proud of the fact that even though we didn’t have a lot of D1 kids, we’ve had kids go on and lead productive lives.”
McMillon said he didn’t necessarily see eye-to-eye with Jurupa Hills administration.
“I think we had a difference in philosophy, we weren’t on the same page,” he said.
McMillon, who had also served as an assistant at Miller and Carter and has already inquired about possible assistant coaching positions that might open up so he is not expecting to sit out the 2016 season.
“I definitely want to coach again,” he said. “I’m looking forward to the next opportunity.”

Final thoughts on Kaiser/Colony

Sometimes, I cover a game, and it’s so entertaining a game that there’s more I want to get to than I can possibly mention in a story. Such was the Kaiser/Colony football game on Friday, won by Colony 23-19.

Some thoughts:

  • Each team scored 3 touchdowns and there were no other scores. Kaiser had its first PAT blocked, went for 2 on the second and failed, then kicked the third. Colony kicked the first, then went for 2 and made it on the second and third touchdowns.
  • The math wouldn’t indicate it, but Colony made the right move going for 2 on its final touchdown. Usually, you go for 2 late in a game when a TD puts you up 1, 4 or 5, but in this case, it put the Titans up 21-19. Going for 2 had more to do with Kaiser. Kaiser had attempted just one FG all year, and missed it. So going up 3 would’ve meant little in this game. But going up 4 would’ve been helpful because if Kaiser came back to score a TD and kicked an XP, Colony could’ve tied with a FG.
  • Kaiser’s drives ended with: Downs, lost fumble, TD, TD, halftime, punt, TD, downs/INT. Just one punt for the Cats. Kaiser ran more plays on its first drive 19 than Colony had in the first half (12). Colony had 3 drives end after just 1 play: 2 TDs, and one lost a fumble. Kaiser had six drives end in Colony territory.
  • On Kaiser’s opening drive, they appeared to be getting a first-and-goal at the Colony 9 as Colony was being called for pass interference on fourth-and-15 at the 19. But Kaiser also got a penalty for illegal man downfield. The down was replayed on the offsetting fouls and Kaiser failed to convert the 4th-and-15  the second time.
