All-Encompassing SGV(N) Top 25 after Week 3 …


Saints make HUGE leap after whipping Monrovia

1. Charter Oak (3-1) — Stood toe to toe with one of the Inland’s best, and had their chances.
2. Bishop Amat (3-1) — Sloppy first half vs. Damien shows Lancers haven’t hit their stride yet.
3. St. Francis (3-0) — As always, the real proof will be found once Mission League play begins.
4. La Habra (2-2) — Another big effort vs. a Trinity team, but a loss is a loss.
5. St. Paul (3-0) — Swordsmen have allowed just 21 points all season.
6. West Covina (3-1) — Not a bad record considering all the injuries the ‘Dawgs have had.
7. Arcadia (3-1) — Can Apaches live up to their favorite status in the Pacific?
8. Chino Hills (2-2) — Huge challenge looms this week vs. unbeaten REV.
9. San Dimas (3-1) — Big rise after routing Mid-Valley contenders 3 straight weeks.
10. Covina (3-1) — Colts have to hope Livingston injury isn’t a long-term thing.
11. Maranatha (4-0) — Minutemen proved they can win the nail-biter.
12. Claremont (4-0) — Wolfpack are simply winning games.
13. Los Altos (4-0) — Feels like we’ve gone back in time.
14. Muir (2-1) — Are ‘Stangs ready to show Arcadia who’s boss in Pacific?
15. Monrovia (1-2) — Most disappointing team in the SGV has huge test vs. South Hills.
16. Alhambra (4-0) — Combined record of teams Moors have beat: 4-9.
17. Bonita (2-2) — Win over L.A. Marshall was expected, Hacienda opener vs. DR will be a test.
18. Damien (2-1) — Spartans have to stop with all the turnovers if they want to make noise in Sierra.
19. Arroyo (3-1) — Knights will be favored in every game the rest of the way. 9-1, anybody?
20. La Serna (3-1) — A loss to La Mirada is forgivable, but 31-0?
21. El Rancho (3-1) — Unbeaten since Los Altos loss, win over Montebello especially nice
22. South Hills (1-2) — Huskies need to take care of business vs. vulnerable Monrovia.
23. La Puente (3-0) — Still not ready to call LP the Montview favorite, but they deserve this ranking.
24. South El Monte (3-0) — Unlike Los Altos, this feel-good story isn’t getting much ink yet.
25. Whittier (3-0) — Competition has been suspect, but 3-0 is 3-0.

    One of the “INLANDS BEST”? When did RC last win the Inland Championship? RC is good a good team but do they play REV, JW North, C.C. or Norco? How about any Pac-5 teams? Upland looks to be the Class of the RC area. Long way to go yet. Time will tell, although I was surprised that they struggled with CO so much because I really thought RC would wear them down and pull staedily away.

  • SGV Aficionado

    The ranking mean nothing. The only thing they do is make certain people fell they know what they are talking about. Only what you do in league and the playoffs will tell the true level of each team.

    And with the disparity between league qualities, Sierra vs. Hacienda, vs. Serra, etc….Is there really a true comparison? NO………

    These rankings are fun, but mean absolutely nothing.

  • Highlander Fan

    With the exception of Amat getting destroyed by Servite and WC getting humiliated by Loyola, ahas anyone on this list played any worthy opponent? NO…NO…NO.

    LH is the only team that can stand toe to toe with real competition. Maybe Amat can hang with some of the D1 schools, but they will find out in Serra league that this year they are the weak one.

    WC, CO, St Paul, and the rest of this list doesn’t play anyone worth mentioning to be considered any good in all of southern california. Why do these SGV morons keep bunching us with the SGV. La Habra is more in the OC than SGV.

    Until any of these teams ( Exception: Amat ) play more than one D1 – Pac 5 team, they will never be taken as a serious football program in Southern Ca.

  • Whittier Area Fan

    It says St. Paul has only given up 21 points this season. What that doesn’t tell you is that the 1st team defense has only given up 7 points this season, the rest were scored on the 2′s and 3′s in the 4th quarter.

  • Are you kidding me?

    @Highlander Fan: So you’ve won some titles in a weak a@@lower division. Sure you might play some D1 schools but until you beat one of them and stop playing in the Pop Warner league you are in then you guys will only be considered a good team and not the elite team you think you are.

  • St Paul Parent

    Highlander Fan,

    You are so cluless. You can play college teams, but until you win one, stop bragging like you are a D1 team. The truth is you are 0- ?? against all the Pac 5 teams you have played.

    How I wish we played you this year. And how I hope we can schedule you next year. You would be spanked by the true #1 team in the Whittier area. With all respect to the other teams on the list, LH just toots its’ horn like the big bad wolf, but then they go play in the Freeway league with some of the weakest teams in all of southern ca.

    You are laughable.

  • This just in!

    Rancho Cucamonga has replaced Charter Oak at #25 in the LA Times Top 25 teams.

  • NINEteen95

    .

    I agree with Aram…

    BishopNOMAS has done nothing to impress the SGV.

    First, they struggled to beat GARFIELD,

    then they got their a$$ handed to them in that
    HUMILITAING, DEGRADING and DEVASTATING LOSS to the SERVITE Black Friars,

    then they got a warm CUPCAKE,

    then they lose their Best Offensive Lineman, and then

    they go out and Struggle to beat Damien…

    What do you want BishopNOMAS…? An award to beating the 4th or 5th best team in the Sierra League? Really…? You’re lucky to be at #2…

    No HAUSER, no soup for you!

    Not In 2011 Either…

  • Darth VADAR

    Now that I have seen both Edison and Bishop Amat play Garfield HS and our Servite Black Friars, I can clearly say that Edison are head and shoulders above the BA football program.

    No question about it. Edison is a much much tougher, stronger, bigger and faster team than BA. BA has a very soft DLine and Secondary. BA is in big trouble going into the Serra League. Hell, even Loyola is good this year.

    If we played the so called Bishop Amat family 10 times this year, the score would be 50 something to very little everytime.

    Don’t get mad Bishop Amat, its just reality. This is the big boys league and you just don’t have the big boys to play in our league.

    c

  • Mapquest

    Darth – wait – is Edison in the SGV?

  • Emperor’s Clothes

    That’s great! ChOak’s best “wins” in the last 4 yrs are a tie to Rancho and “standing toe-to-toe” with an undefeated team that has wins over little itty-bitty Muir, Siverado and Great Oak – and since folks don’t know the Inland – that Oak ain’t great and Siverado is “defeated”. One of Inland’s best”? Way to go ChOak – we are #1

  • The Pit

    Highlander fan…or should I just call you high, because that’s what you sound like.
    It’s just REcently u started to play D1 teams…so relax’s kid. By the way, servite didn’t play all there starter’s just a few key position( do some research).

    By the way, how many state titles do you have????

    Take your MEDS and a nap.

    wanna be OC punk.

  • West Hills

    WOW! Aram….you know that was hard for you to rank the Saints up there. Maybe you are learning?

  • Charter Oak #1 ??????

    Are you serious? Charter oak is the #1 team in the SGV? Their 3 wins have come against 1-3 Glendora by 9 points, 1-2 Roosevelt by 7pts, Esperanza who is the #270th team in the state. The only team with a winning record they played, Rancho, They lost to. As far as Rancho being an inland power, do you know anything about inland football? Who has Rancho beat that was worth anything???? 0-4 Silverado, 2-2 Great Oak (2 wins against horrible teams), and Division 7 Muir. Try comparing that to Corona centennial, Upland, North, Vista Murietta….even Norco and Chino hills are probably better. I would not downplay Charter Oak’s loss…… They lost to a “GOOD” Inland team, not a great one. I would have to say that Inland football is much stronger that SGV football.

    TALK IS CHEAP!!

    “Saints4real, quit while you feel as though you’re ahead. To be perfectly honest Monrovia shouldn’t even be playing San Dimas this year for fear that our State rankings may go down a little because of lack of competition. I recall you making comments earlier this year about the loss of Nick Bueno and what this could mean for Monrovia at the QB position. Believe me both of the Monrovia QB’s would have better stats than Kennedy this season, dont believe me show up to Monrovia on game night and see for yourself. Even your own fans got on the Tribunes coveritlive and dogged the play of Kennedy in the Semi’s against Monrovia. He had 2 int’s in that game and got tossed around like a rag doll by our defense and if you think it will get any easier for him this season your just kidding yourself. The only reason that I am not adding George Frazier or Blake Heyworth both Jrs and both are very athletic. With the receiving core at Monrovia San Dimas Mom would be able to make this list LOL but we wouldn’t want to take her out of the stands now would we?.. Being a good QB does take some skill but being a great QB will takes not only good skills but great teammates who are just as skilled. Andrew Elffers is by Far the QB God in the entire San Gabriel valley at this time. Put him on any team and he will produce great numbers next goes Travis Santiago then Steven Rivera and you can put the rest in a very tight group and place them in any order from #4 on down. I feel confident that by the end of the season George Frazier or Blake Heyworth will be somewhere in the top 5 if they decide to go with either or these guys as the starter this season. But the comment about putting
    Frazier on your O-line is funny, you should hope that your O-line is ready to handle him on our Dline along with Ellis McCarthy and Brett Walsh and Lorenzo Cassas that will be task enough for your guys to try and handle. I think that the VVL will be awaiting the opportunity to dismantle all of the SD dreams for this season. The Azusa game will show everyone what your team is made of in the early season. Both Monrovia & San Dimas have captured a ring in the past two seasons but I think it time for Monrovia to step up its game and work more towards having a dynasty. See you in Sept.”

    Fine example how to put your team on the spot!

  • Whittier

    Highlander Fan:

    La Habra sucks! Sure anyone can schedule D1 teams and lose, that doesn’t make you a good team. A good team is beating the D1 teams you schedule.

    Anyway don’t come in here thinking you’re better than the rest, specially than ST PAUL, this is only your second year scheduling D1 opponents (0-5).. St Paul has been doing that for decades now.

    Like i said before UNTIL you win a state tittle don’t you ever talk bad about the ST PAUL SWORDSMEN. We have more history than LH will ever have.

    Ps: i like how 2 mission league teams (St Francis, St Paul) are in the top 5! Respect

  • AMAT 73

    Aram ,
    I agree CO should not lose their place in the rankings due to the loss to RC. They played them tough and were in the game the whole time . Key mistakes cost them . As for AMAT they came out flat as heck the first half and Damien was fired up and ready to play . Probably thought they were going to see the same old Damien but found out Damien was ready to play . They slowly came alive and after Damien’s score realized it was going to be a game . Got a big break by the bad snap on the punt and turned it into a score going into the half. That turned it around and probably some kind words by Hags at the half because the team that took the field in the second was much different . Hats off to Damien as they do look much improved and gave AMAT a good game . They are going to face growing pains with the young QB as some of those ints were just bad decisions on his part but I don’t think they need to start thinking about openning rankings for next year as Aram stated in his Weekend QB thread .
    notsince2009,
    Well you keep riding the shutout of Garfield which no other team has done so far as something bad. First game of the season and the D has a shutout not bad at all . You are also riding on Servite’s win like you are the starting left tackle or an assitant coach for them or something. Yes they whipped us but no shame in that loss as they are one of the top ranked tema in the nation. As for your prediction on Damien beating us by 14 or more. What happened to that Quasi. Hauser’s replacement did a pretty good job don’t you think. That’s just like you to knock down Damien to a 4th or 5th place in the Sierra because we beat them .Which team of the SGV is going to be the next one you throw under the bus. Also what is Cathedral going to beat us by this week ? I know you are picking them against AMAT . And why don’t you just post under one name , you are not fooling anyone with all your alias’ . Just use Quasimoto or my preference for you, The village idiot.

  • keep trying

    Quasimodo also thinks La Mirada is a cupcake – even though they played La Habra really tough and destroyed La Serna ( who beat Bonita who destroyed San Dimas who handled Monrovia – you get the picture?). So – did La Habra schedule a cupcake that gave them trouble? But then Amat blew them out the next week after that “devastating” lost. Not so “devastating” I guess.

  • SGV Football is WEAK!

    The #1 Team in the SGV was beaten by the 7th or 8th best inland team………. HAHAHAHAHAHA!

  • Jefe

    Monrovia’s been a complete bust up to this point.

  • Still Laughing

    Aram,
    Will you still be ranking La Habra higher than most of these teams after they lose to St. John Bosco this week and have a 2-3 record just because they played (and lost to) the big boys?

  • Amat Bully

    I agree completely with your list Aram, with one exception i dont know why or how La Habra is still ranked so high.

  • Get a life

    JEFE, YOU’RE A COMPLETE JOKE! Quit ragging on other teams; I mean that’s all you do. We all know you are CO fan and have some class. YouR TEAM loses and now your back with all your foolishness. I mean CO BRO, KEEPS IT REAL, but your stuff is crap! I got you being around 12years old. TALK FOOTBAL! NOT NONSENSE, BOY DOES THAT SOUND FAMILIAR.

  • D-Mo

    Not really concerned with the rankings, but just a question. Is the RC win against CO a quality win? CO has some injured starters. I remember hearing this when CO beat Rosie. Just asking.

  • Lol!!!

    Hey Observantcat, I know you just HATE “copy & paste!!!” lol!!!!!!!!

  • Colt74

    If my memory has not completely failed me was not Monrovia in the same position at this time as last year?

    And we all know how that turned out…..

    While I DO love how the blogs have quieted down from the west side I am NOT about to write of the Cats. To do so considering their players and coaches would be foolish. San Dimas and Monrovia IMHO are the two best teams in the Mid today. The Colts are outside looking in and that’s ok. We still need some work on stupid, REPETITIVE, penalties.
    If Covina does not get it together on Friday night the Pomona squad is going to take a nice big chunk out of our butts. The NICK BEAST and company are going to have to shut down their run and shut it down quick. If Daniel is at the helm we are STILL in good hands. The young man has the talent and has stepped in when needed and taken care of business. People seem to forget that our number 2 is better than a lot of number 1′s. I hope to see Mason on the field more than on the sidelines in the future too. Great hands.

    About San Dimas…..I told you so before the season ever started…
    About Monrovia….Reality has set in on how good the other NICK BEAST really was. They WILL adjust. And when they do, to use the seriously way overused word, they will be SCARY.

    I now return you to your regularly scheduled rants…already in progress…

  • Dan

    SGV Football is Weak,
    Name me the 7 teams you think are better than Rancho Cucamonga, I can think of CC, JWN, and maybe Upland,
    The rest of the Inland division hasn’t shown much so far this year. Norco struggled with a down Crenshaw, and was just blown out by Upland. Vista Murrieta has had close games with Los Osos[30 to 21] and Etiwanda[31 to 28], both are teams in Rancho’s league that Rancho is favored to beat this year. Redlands East Valley is unbeaten but they’ve beaten a Dominguez team who is down this year, and struggled to beat a Dorsey team who is good but who have themselves struggled to beat Garfiel and Taft.
    Chapparal is down this year so I can’t think of any other Inland teams that would rate higher than RC.
    To me RC is the 4th best Inland team and I would certainly say that their win over CO is a quality win, I predict CO will eventually prove to be a solid top ten Inland division team, right now I would put them right behind REV, and Vista Murietta at around #7 in the Inland which is nothing to sneeze at.

  • http://www.insidesocal.com/sgvfootball Aram

    Daily Bulletin has Rancho ranked No. 1

  • just askin’

    Aram – the DB doesn’t rank the “Inland Division” – just their area – right?

  • http://www.insidesocal.com/sgvfootball Aram

    Yes, just their coverage zone, but that covers several Inland Division teams. Take a look:

    1. (1) Rancho Cucamonga (4-0)
    2. (2) Upland (4-0)
    3. (3) Etiwanda (2-2)
    4. (4) Summit (3-1)
    5. (5) Los Osos (2-2)
    6. (6) Colony (3-1)
    7. (7) Chino Hills (2-2)
    8. (8) Claremont (4-0)
    9. (NR) San Dimas (3-1)
    10. (10) Damien (2-1)
    Dropped out: No. 9 Miller (3-1).
    Others receiving votes: Miller (3-1), Chino (3-1), Bonita (2-2).

  • Just sayin’

    Calpreps has Centennial, Upland, REV, and Vista Murrietta above RC, with North right behind. Fair enough to put Norco, Citrus Hill, Etiwanda, and Los Osos in that mix. thats my 10

  • Jefe

    Get a life,

    Am I lying?

    Monrovia’s been one of the biggest disappointments so far this season in the SGV. After an impressive win over Glendora they’ve looked dreadful against Arcadia & San Dimas.

    I don’t get how that statement’s not “keeping it real.”

  • Swagg

    How can you have the 1-2 Monrovia @ # 15 and with the same record South Hills at # 22 really? Hopefully SH ranking will increase next week.

    BishopNOMAS has done nothing to impress the SGV.

    First, ARE REALLY that proud of beating what is now a 0 – 4 GARFIELD team…?
    Garfield is down at the bottom of the barrel with perrinial losers Palisades and Panorama. The Garfield Currently ranked 25 out 29 teams in the City Divsion 1 standings. Hell, even El Este Roosevelt has won 2 games.
    Can you say Garfiled = CUPCAKE? just sayin…

    Second, DID YOU or did you not* get your a$$ handed to you in that DEGRADING, DEVASTATING and SPITEFUL LOSS to the SERVITE Black Friars…? Wasn’t it 42 – 7 in the 3rd Qtr…?

    What? Oh, wait…That’s right you were in VEGAS while your team was being destroyed!

    Third, then they got a the real CUPCAKE! The powerful 1 – 3 La Mirada Matadores…! The La Mirada that is Currently ranked 24 out 28 teams in the Southeast standings. Hell, even routine losers like Mayfair and Bellflower have more wins than La Mirada…
    Can you say La Mirada = CUPCAKE? just sayin…

    then you go and lose your Best Offensive Lineman. Hell, NINE couldn’t throw with him covering his Blind Side. How is NINE going to do it now in the Serra League. Cus, they’re gonna stack the box and dare you to pass the ball…

    they go out and Struggle to beat Damien…
    Are you kidding me…? 7 – 7 at half time? That should have been 21 – 0 Damien…Tell me I’m wrong!

    And you want an award to beating the 4th or 5th best team in the Sierra League? Really…? You’re lucky to be at #2…

    The Real Top 10 of the week:

    1. Charter Oak (3-1) — CO Chargers won this game. Just too many mistakes.
    2. St. Francis (3-0) — Good, quality wins.
    3. St. Paul (3-0) — Just 21 points all season. Servite scored 21 on Amat just in the 2nd Qtr.
    4. West Covina (3-1) — Dawgs are dangerous when they’re hurt. Remember 2011
    5. La Habra (2-2) — Tuff losses against real tuff competition
    6. Arcadia (3-1) — Yeah, this will change.
    7. Chino Hills (2-2) — We need the REV win badly.
    8. Bishop Amat (3-1) — Sloppy first half of the year. What can you point to and say we have a chance in the Pac 5? Just one thing!
    9. San Dimas (3-1) — Yeah, this will change.
    10. Covina (3-1) — Yeah, this will change. No Livingston no chance.

    11.8 rating?

    Seriously Bishop? And you insist on being recognized as the best in the SGV? Seriously? C’mon Man! This is why you get your butt kicked in the 1st round of the playoffs. Aram is right and your 5 foot PUPPET is wrong! I mean this is just disgusting to read. Where is your pride and honor for competition? Where is your honor to the great football program that was?
    Cathedral is ranked #383 in California. You know who is ranked at 381? Arroyo of El Monte! Would you ever consider playing Arroyo of El Monte? C’mon Man!
    Cathedral beat a Pasadena team with a rating of -0.9 then lost to West Adams of the City Division by 27 – 7. And West Adams sucks! They’re 1 – 3 in 2011.

    To Cathedral???
    Why are you mouthing off about St. Paula allowing only 21 points, they havn’t played Servite; if they did, the score would be 21-0 in the first five minutes of play!

    Hey CATHEDRAL??? We (AMAT) don’t insist on being recognized as the best…WE ARE THE BEST until You beat us! No one in the SGV or the Inland can say they are better than us this year because ya know what, you haven’t beat us! As it stands now, the only one who can make that claim over us is Servite. If you aint Servite, you haven’t played us OR BEAT US! So SSSSHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

    That was probably the worst and weakest response i have ever read on a blog.

    Cathedral — 2-1 Rating of * 11.8

  • Over Rated Lancers

    Wow! I just woke up to read all of this? Look at Cathedral’s state ranking!

    What’s happening to the pride of Bishop Amat? Who schedules these games? The AD? Coach Hags? What, was Mark Keppel at #1012 of the mighty Almont League too busy this coming Friday? I can’t believe we have sunk this low as to schedule such weak teams like Cathedral. How does this make us look against the rest of the Pac 5? What happend to “You gotta beat the best to be the best”? This is definately going to hurt us in the state rankings, in the Pac 5 rankings and in the SGV. This is embarrassing! What’s the point of going to the game. We all know what’s going to happen! I’m glad I’m going to be Las Vegas this weekend!

  • AMAT 73

    notsince2009,
    Wow how manly of you to put down a high school ball player with all those descriptions . You use the fact that I said the young man did a pretty good job as a reason to come on here and bash him ? Your obsession with AMAT and their followers has gone off the charts. You know if you talked football every now and then such as giving your reason why you felt Damien would beat us by 14 or more then maybe you could be tolerated a bit . But no after they lose you belittle them by saying they will finish 4th or 5th in Sierra. Why because they didn’t live up to your beat AMAT obsession. That’s what you do , use teams for your battle with AMAT then cast them aside except Servite which I am sure you have a poster of some sort with the score from that game in your living room. You did the same to Bonita a while back although not against AMAT but none the less belittled them even though they are a SGV team . You can call me anything you like as I call you Quasimoto , village idiot and so forth , but leave the kids out of it , as they put it on the line every Friday night and do not need idiots like you berating them such as you do . That not only goes for AMAT players but for all teams . SGV or not . Still don’t know why posts like that are allowed , but hey anything for a hit count.

  • Lancelot

    AMAT bully – Read it and weep LOSER! Of course you would think it’s weak…you guys have had your a$$e$ handed to you by AMAT a lot! The TRUTH does HURT as jascka$$1995 likes to point out (even when he’s talking out of his a$$, which is always). It is what it is my man, DEAL WITH IT!!!!

  • Lancelot

    You’re ALL a bunch of JOKES! Suck up that Haterade dirtbags, because you guys are obviously very thirsty. Amat is alive and well and you can’t stand it. CUPCAKES, Weak schedules, easy teams, pump up stats…BLAH, BLAH, BLAH….BOO HOO….. H E Y !
    Here’s an idea…….PLAY US! Then everybody can call your program a cupcake and weaka$$ team because apparently, according to you clowns, anybody that AMAT plays is unworthy of your respect. It must really suck to be you guys because you have to “BLOW” a buck everyday to get the Tribune and read about the BEST TEAM IN THE VALLEY – Bishop Amat…day in and day out. I get it, that is where all the HATE comes from. You know what? I’m going to embrace it and throw it in your face HATERS! And every time that IDIOT Darth vader, milk boy, NINEteen95 and nonsense1995 (all the same clown) and Amat envy POST….IT’S A TESTAMENT TO OUR ONGOING DOMINANCE OF THE SGV! So to AMAT’s greatest fans…..KEEP IT UP!!!!

    it is funny that when Amat played 3 SGV schools per year bloggers ragged on playing too soft a schedule. people here seem to think Amat needs to improve their schedule. it’s been documented that Amat is like 25+ and 1 this decade vs local teams, so what’s the point? The trade off is if there are no local games, there is then no direct comparison and those schools get to play the “we go farther in the playoffs so we must be better” card that gets quieted with logic when Amat beats those teams. It appears there’s no pleasin the Fish Bowl. Amat beats Charter Oak, West Covina, Diamond Ranch, Glendora, Damien, Ranch Cucamonga, Muir, St Francis, and St Paul recently – and it’s not enough. But it does make a point – if you pit your bias aside and be realistic.

    CATHEDRAL??? REALLY???,

    Since you were so kind to point out *some* of Amat’s opponents and their ratings, in the interest of full disclosure, I thought I would finish the list for you.

    Garfield Rating of 21.1
    Servite Rating of 70.9
    La Mirada Rating of 26.7
    Damien Rating of 30.2
    Cathedral Rating of 11.8

    Now, since it appears you have some issue with that schedule, I thought it would be good to compare and contrast out “Number 1″ Fish Bowl team and their schedule….I mean, since we want to compare them – which is what this list apparently tries to do.

    Glendora Rating of 22.1
    Roosevelt Rating of 22.1
    Esperanza Rating of 19.8
    Rancho Cucamonga Rating of 52.9

    and their upcoming opponent
    Santa Fe Rating of 11.7

    Wait? Lower than lowly Cathedral? It can’t be!

  • LNCR BKR

    Joe Amat – do you have comparative rankings by opponents for the serra league teams? I just don’t feel like some of those rankings for our upcoming opponents is going to be all that high? They haven’t exactly been scheduling up…..League approches, I hope we are ready and I hope we are healthy. Go Amat!!!

  • Joe Amat

    I haven’t gone through the whole Serra league but Crespi, for example looks like this

    Dominguez Rating of 31.1
    Jordan Rating of MINUS -1.5
    Clovis West Rating of 28
    Palisades Rating of 7.8

    and Alemany plays teams like

    Pasadena Rating of MINUS -10.9
    Beverly Hills Rating of 0.5
    and
    Eastside Rating of 0, yes… ZERO

    Wow…What’s happend to the BishopNOMAS Lancers…?

    JoeAmat, BishopNOMAS has been reduced from the National Power of the 70′s and 80′s down to comparing their recent history against the little schools of the so called SGV “fishbowl!”

    Hah…How the mighty have fallen…!

    Only 2 weeks ago BishopNOMAS got their a$$ handed to them by a SERVITE team that in the 3rd Quarter was slapping NOMAS around 42 – 7 with SERVITES 3rd string D-Line.
    .
    In the 4th Quarter, when the score became 49 – 7, the REFS had a running clock going to run out the clock. A RUNNING CLOCK…! Hah… You member JoeAmat…? Oh wait, you were already in the parking lot at Cerritos College getting the hell out of there! Weren’t you? That’s right…Everybody saw you leave, Old Man!

    Now, here they are defending their Over Rated, Under Performing 2011, and “soon to be 4 – 0 in the Serra League” team. Even Old Mrs Doubt-Fire 73 admits that they haven’t earned the #1 spot in the 5′ PUPPET’s list!

    Hah…How the mighty have fallen…!

    JoeAmat, we in the SGV will sit back and watch you play out your Serra Legue schedule and on Thanksgiving Day, the entire SGV will again remind you that you Are Not What You Use To Be…!

    It Is What It Is…NOT SINCE 1995!

    notsincedumboflew,
    You finally tell the truth that’s in your mind. And I quote ” the soon to be 4-0 in the Serra ” team. thank you for finally showing your true colors , blue and gold of Amat and also the vote of confidence.

    And I quote JoeAmat, “soon to be 4 – 0 in the Serra League” team. HAHAHAHAHAHAH!!! That’s the Laugh of the season! Keep dreaming Dumb A$$…

    I’m on record as predicting that you will not make the playoffs…

    Bishop Amat cannot compete in the serra league.. or just in general PAC 5 division.

    Thanks Joe – That’s what I thought. I’m pretty sure S.O. Notre Dame and Loyola are similar? I think the Lancers will be in the thick of things come league!

    FRED J Robledo –

    I called you out last night! C’Mon…Homes! Step out ESE…and answer my question!

    What is the one thing that your 2011 Bishop Amat Lancers have done this year that has made the SGV say

    “Wow…They sure are the best of the SGV…”?

    Just one thing FREDJ!

    MOST of the SGV (including Old Mrs DoubtFire 73) agree with Aram. Why are you so special?

    BishopNOMAS is 3-1 because of the CUPCAKES they have played. When Amat wins a STEP-UP game, then they can start to climb. For now, they should still be embarrased by that HUMILIATING, DEGRADING, and DEVASTATING a$$ handing that the other PAC 5 team “thee SERVITE Black Friars” gave them…!

    It Is What IT IS…HOW THE MIGHTY HAVE FALLEN!

    LecheroNINEteen – here ya go. They shut out a Garfield team that was beating 3-1 Dorsey in the 4th and dropped 26 on them – after Redlands East Valley could only beat Dorsey14-12. Amat destroyed a La Mirada team that dismantled La Serna – who beat Aram’s new “favorite” for the Hacienda League (Bonita). Damine was a ranked Inland team who never really moved the ball against a depleted Amat defense. So Amat’s wins are against

    Looks to me like Amats wins vs Damien and La Mirada are better than any of ChOaks (thanks to your info) And Garfield is pretty darn close to GHS and Rosie.

    “With the exception of Amat getting destroyed by Servite and WC getting humiliated by Loyola, ahas anyone on this list played any worthy opponent? NO…NO…NO.

    LH is the only team that can stand toe to toe with real competition. Maybe Amat can hang with some of the D1 schools, but they will find out in Serra league that this year they are the weak one.

    WC, CO, St Paul, and the rest of this list doesn’t play anyone worth mentioning to be considered any good in all of southern california. Why do these SGV morons keep bunching us with the SGV. La Habra is more in the OC than SGV.

    Until any of these teams ( Exception: Amat ) play more than one D1 – Pac 5 team, they will never be taken as a serious football program in Southern Ca.

  • Losing is losing

    You’re right – no one else could go 1-7 vs Pac 5 teams. After all, you do have that win vs San Clemente (the year Santa Fe beat them too)

  • Really?

    “LH is the only team that can stand toe to toe with real competition.”

    41-6

    Toe to toe? You guys were not even in the same zip code with Bosco tonight.

    Maybe they should move you guys to the Montview league.

  • Not a playoff team in the PAC 5

    LH had the balls to schedule up and play with 2 powerhouses and a has been in St. JB. They went toe to toe with the legit contenders and fell asleep tonight with a pretender. They have nothing to be ashamed of and will compete for a 5th straight championship while the Bosco clan will be home by Thanksgiving AT VERY BEST. Your nothing but the leftovers on the rock that Loyola didn’t want! Don’t forget where you lay, forever unwelcomed in the Trinity, a notch above JSerra!

  • BraveDad

    Not a playoff team in the PAC 5,

    How can you run your no class mouth after we destroyed LH two years in a row? And please don’t comment about the Trinity and us and JSerra, etc because you have no clue. WE OWN YOU (and you too Kslob!).

  • BraveDad

    Oh and one other thing, if not for garbage time and a last second hail mary before half Bosco has outscored the little fat LH team 76 – 0 over two games – GOT A$% WHUPPING?

  • Playoffs? Playoffs? you kiddin me? Playoffs?

    BravePapi, you have 6 six wins in the last 4 years of Trinity League play, please don’t try to bullshit us that your team makes DEEP runs in to the PAC 5 postseason. Not since 2004 has your little LBP wanna bees and “we’re here cuz Loyola wouldnt let us in” players made it to playoffs. You don’t compete in post season play, PERIOD. We can easily call you on your bullsh*t. You’re the Wrong Beach Jordan, you’re the Bishop Amnot, no, no you’re the Dana Hills of the Pac 5. Don’t come here sqawking your spew, back to the doormat you go. Your a stepping stone, and a fugly one at that!

    @ Playoffs? Playoffs? you kiddin me? Playoffs?,

    So if the Bosco program is what you say it is, what does that make the LH program? Ill tell you what it makes them: a team of small, fat players who play in a weak a$% D6 league that impresses nobody but your clue less fans and perhaps the other programs in your bush league division. Summing it up: in the land of the blind, the guy with one eye is the sh#t. LMAO! It would be funny to trade places for one season, i.e., LH play a Bosco schedule and Bosco play an LH schedule. Wed win your weak a#$ league and a CIF championship and LH would be lucky to win one game all season. However, LH would never be allowed into the PAC5 EVER all you can do is look in from the window and wish you could play in the most elite division in the SS.

    That said, the issue on the table at this time is not the past or that Bosco hasnt made the playoffs since 04. (When was the last time LH made the D1 playoffs by the way? Oh yeah, NEVER! Heck LH cannot even beat a D1 team.). Its all about now and the fact that LH cannot carry our jock! You epitomize the low life unintelligent parents on the LH side and you and those like you make all the good LH parents and families look bad you are an embarrassment! (Chanting overrated to Servite when they are ahead – yeah, real bright.) Now go lick your wounds and get ready for your cute little D6 league play. Stop running your mouth because every post you submit solidifies that you are an idiot with a big mouth! If we played LH every year, thank God we dont, the result would be the same, A BOSCO THUMPING and LH talking nonsense after the game!

  • WHERE’S WALDO

    Where oh where has the little knob gone, oh where oh where can he be. I’ll tell you where at home licking his wounds after that trouncing they received last night . Guess they don’t get the played them tough on this game .

  • KNOB

    The St. John Bosco Braves put LH over their knees last night and put a whippin’ to them. I ain’t gonna lie. I was there, till the very end, till the last untimed down. LH looked emotionally tired. You can’t do that against one of these teams. You will get a beatin’, just like LH got. I have been to many LH games during this run, and they have never looked that poorly. Props to the Bosco team and their fans. Still don’t think they gonna do more than one and done come November. It should be a hell of a fight for the 2nd and 3rd place spots in the Trinity. O Lu, MD, and Bosco are gonna grind it out. No one is walking away easy amongst those 3 teams.

    I stood, sat, fidgeted mostly last night amongst a few MD players and fans. They were chomping at the bit. It’s gonna be great second half of this years football season!!!!!!! Good luck to all those kids. One the other hand, I hope a few of you parents have car trouble to your next game :)

  • AMAT 73

    KNOB,
    Props to you for coming on here and telling it like it is . Maybe by this you will see what it is on facing teams of the PAC-5 caliber for 4-5 weeks in a row. You guys played Servite , O Lu , and SBJ all in a row and you saw the emotional let down, which for a team not used to it is a great burden to get ready week after week for these types of games. Imagine if you have MD next week and another PAC-5 team the following . Good luck to LH this season as I know they are aleady battle tested for their league play.

  • BraveDad

    @ KNOB,

    Right on. Classy post. it was a fun and festive night at LHHS. I have to admit I never thought it would be so one sided, then again thats HS football for you. Now if you could only get your LH partner who continues to talk smack to stop the world would be a better place homie needs a reality check. Saw a lot of old friends last night and got to bed late and it was all worth it. Good luck to all.
