So there it was, the most shocking score of Friday night: Tesoro 43, La Mirada 14. For the entire offseason, media types like myself got flooded with the dope on La Mirada’s standout players and big-time recruits. We, in turn, flooded you, the readers/bloggers, with the dope on La Mirada’s standout players and big-time recruits. This publicity obviously brought a lot of attention to the Matadores … and where there’s publicity there’s resentment and, yes, haters. La Mirada opened the season on Friday with a nice test. A road game against a Pac-5 team. And deep in the heart of Orange County, LM got smashed. Although Tesoro plays in a premier division and a tough league, if you saw which team had the super recruits, you’d think La Mirada was the Pac-5 team. A receiver going to Oklahoma. A TE/LB with his pick of any school. An o-lineman going to Cal. A junior QB with suitors lining up. So how could this happen? I don’t want to hear about how La Mirada was the lower division team and we shouldn’t be surprised. If you have that many D-1 guys, I don’t care what your division is, you should be able to play. Heck, LM made Amat break a sweat last year before falling. So what the heck happened? The floor is open for answers.
