I’m still wondering about Monrovia’s mental make up …

Here’s a comment I made back in summer when Monrovia lost to Azusa in the SGV Shootout passing tournament. The ‘Cats did things that afternoon that baffled me and in the course of conversation I said the following:

When a team does what Monrovia did last year (go 13-0 into the final game) and loses when the big cheese is on the line, red flags go up in my head. I wonder not about talent, but mental make up. I went to that tournament wanting to look at certain things from certain teams. Mental make up was what I watching with M-Town, and I didn’t like what I saw and believe me, I’m not alone.

I bring this up because it needs to be brought up after the ‘Cats bricked it against San Dimas on Friday in a 35-34 OT loss to San Dimas. This was supposed to be the big revenge game for Monrovia … and they were well on their way when, guess what, they couldn’t finish it MENTALLY. I’m baffled. This is the probably the best team in the Mid-Valley Division, but if you didn’t believe in summer, you surely believe me now. Monrovia had everything set up for it make a statement on Friday, and it didn’t happen.

Will they win the Mid-Valley Division? I don’t know … I think they’re the best team, but can you trust them?

    Aram,

    Suppose, just suppose that Monrovia’s best was actually being played in all 4 quarters of the game and it was San Dimas with the “Mental Breakdown” in the first 2 quarters of the game. Besides, I’m sure if you look at the stats, ZSan Dimas was the one with the most turnovers, dropped passes and mis-tackles!!

    Sorry, just seems as if you’re padding yourself on the back.

    Have a great weekend, I know I am :)

    @ Butch
    What are you even talking about, if they lose they still have all of their season, then playoffs. Win or lose against SH, they’re playing these games in order to improve, thats the whole point of scheduling up. A comment like that could only come from someone with a name like Butch.

  • I think…

    Butch is tryng to say that SH sucks. Am I right Butch? I hope it’s a dogfight, because after Monrovia gave up a fourth quarter lead to San Dimas I don’t know if it will be. Many know the major reason SH is having trouble this year is, because they have a lot of two way players. That hurts against a team that has twice as many kids as u (Tesoro) and where the gap between first and second string isn’t so big. A first half score of 16-6 doesn’t show how good the defense played. The score could’ve been 0-0 at half, because all 22 points in the first half came off of major mistakes. An interception by Tesoro and a kick off return, which came from a SH safety. SH score was an 83 yard reception where the defense closest player was about 20 yards away.

    I don’t think Monrovia has the luxury that Tesoro has (strength, speed, depth). I don’t even think Monrovia has more players than SH, so that’s even worse for them. When you consider San Dimas rushed for 200 yards against Monrovia. SH has the ability to go for 300+

    The word “BRUTAL” comes to mind when I think of this game and how it turned out! I would of bet the farm Monrovia had it in the bag. If you would of told me at half time, that SD will win by 1, in over time and Monrovia looses to Bueno, running the ball himself and stopped at the one for the loss! I would of yelled out at you, saying you are out of your MIND!!! I seriously almost had a heart attack in the stands after this game and that is no lie! What a upset… Monrovia is a lil Down but not out…. We are bound to bounce back and turn everything around! I sure hope the Wildcat coaching staff and players are taking this second loss to SD really hard but with also learning from it, REALLY learning from it. At the end of the day, the Wildcats are Still stacked, that has not changed… Let’s just hope the staff thinks outside the box for once and run some plays they wouldn’t usually run. Change it around a bit. Always a Wildcat fan……

    As the saying goes, within the professional’s mind there aren’t many choices, but for someone possessing a beginner’s mind, everything is wide open.
