2006 Glendora football schedule + analysis …

The Butler did it!


Glendora has had some nice success over the past two seasons. Coach Mark Pasquarella turning around the Tartans program was something many local pundits saw coming. Glendora has finished second and third, respectively, in the past two seasons in the very difficult Sierra League. The Tartans didn’t make it out of the first round of the playoffs in either season mainly because they played in omni-tough Division II. Glendora’s opponent in both seasons was Hart.

We’ve got good flow going on the 2006 Charter Oak schedule thread …

the recruiting debate has broken out. It didn’t come in the Los Altos or South Hills threads, but the CO thread pushed things over the top. What cracks me up is that people say it’s OK for Amat or Damien to do it, and I am not saying they do or anybody else does. Seems to me that Amat loses more than it keeps these days. I like the Los Altos complaints considering that LA’s top returning player just transferred out. Selective debating, gotta love it!

2006 Charter Oak football schedule + analysis …

Replacing this is the only concern Big Lou had this off-season


I have started CO as the unofficial No. 1 team in the area heading into Spring practice. Do I expect to find out something that makes me shake up the rankings? No, I don’t. What you saw below with the rankings is merely a guideline for the summer. Tons will happen between now and the SGV Tribune football preview issue, which by the way, sports some serious one-day sales figures.

Is “Football: The Real OC” overrated???

Am I the only person in the SGV who feels like the OC is a totally different world?
I really like Orange County’s intensity toward high school sports. I like the fans, I like the OC Register, I like the dedication, I like Disneyland, I like my NL-only fantasy baseball league which is based out of North Orange County, I like Newport Beach in August … I just like it all.

Here’s what some coaches said about all-league and all-area

I can do this because I have the sources. Here’s what some of the top coaches in the area think about the legitimacy of all-league and Tribune all-area teams.

Because this ended up being such a hot topic on another thread, I decided to get the opinions of some local coaches because I have access to it.

If any other coaches want to post their opinions, then please leave your name with your post. Start with all-league voting opinion and then Tribune All-Area. Please be honest, there will be no hard feelings whatsoever.

Covina vs. South Hills last season … Who would have won?

BUT FIRST A DIATRIBE: When I go cover a game I often form opinions about the teams, players and coaches, most of which doesn’t come out in my game story. Or at least they’re not supposed to. Anyway, a game story isn’t supposed to include Aram Tolegian’s opinion of a team, its players and coaches. It’s supposed to be “here’s the final score, this is what happened, and my best explanation of why.” Only in columns do my opinions come out. But columns (in print) are rare. However, I do often wonder the same things that fans do. But in game stories I can’t say what I really think, only what happened. And sometimes there just isn’t enough to say to fill a column. That’s why I have this blog. This is what I truly think. If you no likey, then post a counter argument. If you really no likey, then kick rocks. There are plenty of other places in Al Gore’s Internet where you can go be miserable. I also have this blog because I like to read the opinions of others, no matter if we agree or disagree.
