POSTGAME: Talk your smack or cry me a river …



“The Good: Some might call the Valley’s underdog status in the Southwest Division a bad thing. I call it good.

I know, it’s hard to understand. The schools that have provided the Valley a CIF title every season this decade are taking a back seat to two Orange County leagues and one from the 562 area code.

Nobody around these parts is saying the prowess established by the Century, Sea View or Suburban leagues this season isn’t warranted.

It’s just that I’m adding up the recent CIF titles won in the division, and it’s hard to understand why anybody would take the Miramonte or San Antonio leagues lightly.

CIF clearly did. There’s five leagues in the division, yet the top four seeds went to three league champs and one second place team.

This slight has created a dangerous backdraft situation for the rest of the division. It makes teams like Charter Oak, Los Altos, South Hills and West Covina feel like massive underdogs.

It makes coaches like Lou Farrar, Greg Gano, Steve Bogan and Mike Maggiore feel like they have something to prove. Who wants to be the favorite if it means these guys are the underdog?

Hopefully, the Valley can prove people wrong either by producing a stunning upset or making a run at the title. ”

West Covina 19, Mayfair 16 (uh oh, down goes the No. 1 seed)
South Hills 21, Canyon 14 (Bogan an underdog? Please …)
Los Altos 35, Rowland 17 (Tradition)
Duarte 37, La Canada 7 (supposedly I give Duarte no respect …)
Charter Oak 24, La Mirada 21
Redlands 40, Glendora 21
