Sunday Tribbin: Why Covina is No. 1 in Mid-Valley and get ready for Amat (9-0) vs. Alemany (9-0)

For Covina the regular season is over, so let me explain why they deserve the top seed in the Mid-Valley because if things remain status quo and they don’t get a top four seed, then voters need to check themselves. Whether or not you wanna believe it, Covina earned No. 1 on paper. The win over West Covina, the Southeast Division’s top team with wins over South Hills, Bonita, Diamond Ranch and Glendora, is by far and away the most impressive win in the division by a landslide. Add the win over defending champ San Dimas (who owns a win over Monrovia) and what you have are two victories more impressive than any win Azusa or Arroyo have on their resume. That’s no disrespect to Azusa or Arroyo, it’s just the truth. The Colts should be ahead of Monrovia for beating West Covina and having the same record, but with a win over San Dimas too it’s a no-brainer. And lets not forget the win over Baldwin Park. That leaves Whittier Christian, who many think could be the top team in the division and not disputing that. But I don’t see a major victory on their schedule and they haven’t faced anyone lower than division ten. Any way you look at it, Covina deserves the top seed, whether or not you think they’re good enough to win it.

Here are the rankings going into the final week
1. Azusa (9-0)
2. Monrovia (7-2)
3. Arroyo (8-1)
4. Whittier Christian (8-1)
5. Covina (9-1)

Here it is, highlights and interviews from the Colts’ 27-23 comeback win over the Saints.

Alemany’s 21-14 victory over Notre Dame was much closer than anyone expected after the way Amat dismantled Notre Dame the week before, but don’t read much into it, Amat will still have their hands full on Friday. I will be there with Mike “The Cousin” Robledo’s live blog in case any of you can’t make the trip to Mission Hills.

  • Azusa Better Be Ready!

    After reading this article, I took a look at Azusa’s schedule and I’m wondering how in the world they are #1? They can be undefeated, but their schedule shows no sign of quality football. Covina is an easy #1 based on their schedule comparison. Flip Covina and Azusa and it seems like it would be more reasonable.

  • Azusa Aztec.

    indeed i believe Covina Deserves a higher spot than number 5. This is the case where the “underdog” made its way up and definitely the Colts deserve it!

  • Uncle Pete

    cif blue book says no fourth place can go in as an atlarge till all third place teams have been considered. that means with montebello not being eligible anymore (and there in third place) (same goes for el monte) and since there locked in at third place in there league, no one other in there league can go, and neither can the Olympic #4… that means the at-larges for mid-valley will be…. Montview #3, Olympic #3, Rio Hondo #3, and Valley Vista #3 (provided north-view does not beat BP, if that happens, they will look for the next best 4th place teams in all leagues)

  • Aaron

    Azusa is rated number one for a reason. Not only have they crushed their opponents they’ve not allowed their opponents to score.

    They have the best defense in the division with only allowing which is 72 less than the next league champ in Monrovia and 83 less than Arroyo.

  • K

    Uncle Pete, are El Monte and Montebello going to be out because they are probably both going to finish 4-6? Does the CIF blue book require that teams finish with a record of .500 or better?

  • big dawg

    You heard it here first, Amat 42, Alemany 24!!!!!!!!

    2010 Serra League Champions!!!!!!!!!!!

  • VVL Scout

    K said:

    Covina went in with a 4-6 record in 2008 and played Azusa.

  • kh

    dont forget,
    fred knowa it all.
    what fred wants, fred get.
    covia your # 1
    covia was my cif pick to start the season off,along with bonita.
    hopefully amat too.
    amats has the toughes road ahead of them.
    bonita will cruise thru this thing.hopefully w/c/
    stands strong and lets us wax them next time.
    the pressure off the boys now time to take care of business.
    covia beats w/c/ and and everybody said it was a bad game for w/c/
    do i buy into that?????????????
    yes because i saw us turn ball over and over to w/c and they scored and ran away with gamebihi only scored 2 fg out of 7 times in red zone,was it because of the d.no way bohi just didnt excute
    thats all,17 points rowland scored off w/c/
    rowland 0 off bohi
    so in closing good luck all sgv teams.

  • San D – Wilson Game – Thursday not FRI

    The SD – Wilson game is on Thursday at Wilson it was changed during the summer

    But I’m not sure anyone knows about it outside of the Wilson group – I was talking to a SD coach last Sunday – and he had no idea that it was changed from Fri to Th

    But I guarantee you Wilson will be there on Thursday in uniform, Senoir night, Band , ect.

    If San Dimas doesnt show up on Thursday – I really believe the Wilson defense will keep the score down – at least until about halftime

  • big dawg

    Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, Jalen Moore and Rio Ruiz are the best One-Two Punch/Combination not only in the valley, but in the nation, period point blank, end-of-story.

  • Question

    Hey Fred,

    Since Veterans’s Day is a national holiday, are schools still allowed to hold games that day? I was also thinking, wouldn’t janitors, security, bus drivers, etc have to get paid double overtime or something? I know several schools that had to change their game days to Tuesday. Just wondering…

  • Dear Big Dawg

    Wow!! that really is impressive, especially since there are currently 83 teams ranked higher than Bishop Amat on the national list. As Darth Vader said, “Impressive…most impressive.”

  • Use the force, Darth

    BA is ranked 83 in the Nation? That is phenominal considering there are thousands upon thousands of high schools in the USA!

    GREAT JOB LANCERS!

  • Wildbill

    Where does big dawg get his herbs? I wanna hallincinate like he does. Best in the state? Nope. Best in the nation? Far from it.

    The 39th QB in the state? Tops in the nation? Only because he has a good PR team.

    Credit the line and the defense!!!!!! That makes the game.

  • We Need Shay!

    big dawg

    We can’t forget about Zach Shay. Before Ruiz “found” his accuracy, Shay bailed Amat out on more than one occasion with his crazy moves and blazing fast speed. BA needs Shay against Alemany.

    Doesn anyone know if Zach Shay is playing vs. Alemany?

  • big dawg

    I haven’t and will not forget about Shay, he’ll just add to the mix. Once he returns to the line up, it’ll become the “Three Amigos”!!!!!!!!!!

    Please take note that rankings don’t matter, just look at the BCS, the number one team loses dam near every week. It’s where you end up that matters and at the end of the season, mark my words, the Lancers will be ” USA Today 2010 NATIONAL CHAMPS”.

    Period, point blank, end-of-story.

  • AMAT GETS SPANKED.

    ALEMANY SERVES AMAT SOME HUMBLE PIE 35-14. GO ALEMANY.

  • umm…

    are u serious azusa best defense in the divison omg who did AZUSA play DUARTE!!! how many points have they scored all year 6?? ummm ya u dont play anyone so shutup they do not have the best defense at all!

  • E

    Question,

    It’s Veterans Day, not Labor Day.

  • just sayin’

    big dawg – one game at a time big fella. let’s not get ahead of ourselves

  • big dawg

    Amat gets spanked, you need to take your head out of your you know where and “RECOGNIZE”. Amat will spank that a–, as stated before AMAT 42, Alemany 24, end-of-story.

  • Humble Pie is for the Favored…Not the Underdog

    It’s Alemany that would be humbled if they lost because Alemany is favored to win. If Alemany defeats Bishop Amat then they accomplished what they are supposed to accomplish. If Bishop Amat loses, they would have lost to a top ranked team in California in one of the most difficult leagues in the country. There is no shame in this. Yes, BA fans will be saddened with a loss but our pride and honor will still stand because we know that we lost to an awesome team with the stats and schedule to back it up.

    In case anyone has forgotten, Alemany beat OAKS CHRISTIAN who beat ST. BONAVENTURE who just beat WESTLAKE. Alemany is king of the parochials….right now.

    I for one think both Alemany and Bishop Amat can defeat Servite.

  • bobby

    Sorry Covina,
    You are going to have to settle with the #5 seed because Azusa, Monrovia, Arroyo, and Whittier Christian are no way win hell going to lose their last league games. The top 4 seeds are going to stay the same, meaning those 4 teams have a better path to the finals.

  • smallcity

    I have to wonder where some of these Amat/Alemany predictions are coming from. The Amat haters can’t help but predict Amat getting blown out of the water… in every game. Your so averse to anything Amat that you can not look at things objectively. Good thing you guys don’t work as Vegas odd makers.

    Let’s be realistic folks. Alemany made many mistakes against ND. Otherwise, it would have been a blowout. This is not going to be a blowout game on either side. This game is a tossup plain and simple.

    Amat is going to the post season either way. They don’t need to rush Shay back only to see him get hurt again and lose him for the rest of the season. A high ankle sprain takes some time to heal.

    With Amat and Alemany’s speed on both sides of the ball (especially Amat’s D and Alemany’s O) it should be an interesting game to say the least.

  • just another sgv guy

    covina is a great football no doubt everyone knows covina is more deserving of #1 than anyone beating west co is by far a great accomplishment but fred its not going to happen so stop posting it and filling these kids heads … covina don’t worry about the rankings take it out on the team u face every week in the playoffs… good luck…

    however i see monrovia winning it all… good luck to everyone
    go sgv go

  • just askin’

    So Covina beats West Covina and they beat Glendora who demolished walloped Monrovia. Covina beats San Dimas who beat Monrovia. But Monrovia gets a seed and Covina doesn’t?

  • Colt74

    Numbers Don’t Lie…

    Power Ranking Avg. League Ranking Pre-Season SOS

    Azusa 21.8 -14.2 -13.3
    Arroyo 14.2 -9.3 -6.8
    Monrovia 23.2 -5 -1.9
    W. Christian 21.0 5.3 -2.9
    Covina 22.3 6.2 9.8

    Look at this without bias. Who is Number 1 in the Mid Valley? Forget polls where coaches can show bias..Who’s REALLY number 1 ?

    That’s what I thought. Covina by a landslide.
    Tougher league. Tougher preseason. Better quality wins over better teams. Fat Free and probably 50% fewer cavities too….

    I just know my neatly laid out columns are going to get fubar’d when I post….

    “Polls?… We don’t need no stinking polls!”

  • Prediction

    Alemany/Pasadena Warriors are going to blow out the Lancers. Imagine if Muir could have kept its talent.

  • Amat vs Alemany

    Amat vs Alemany

    These two teams are mirror images of each other. Not in terms of scheme, rather in terms of discipline and coaching.

    Coaching:
    Both teams have a great Coaching staff. Herrington is a legit Coach that coaches up his kids. Hagerty kind of flew under the radar for years, but he has won CIF Championships on different levels. He is a proven Coach. But the staff is the difference. Amat has too many Coaches that are LEGIT.

    Edge: Amat

    Offense:

    Alemany runs a spread offense, but do not let that deceive you, they are a balanced run pass team.
    Amat is more a multiple set offense, very balanced in run and pass.

    Both teams will have to choose their poison. Poor DC have a lot of work in front of them.

    Edge: Even

    Defense:

    They both have solid defenses: Very well coached and great schemes. This will be the key to this game. The defense with the most stops will win this game.

    Alemany might have better personnel overall, just barely. With a base Cover 2 scheme

    Amat has multiple sets on defense, which is used well by Defiori and Staff.

    Edge: Amat
    Edge:

    Special Teams:

    Alemany has the kicker
    Amat has the scheme

    Edge: Alemany

    X-Factor:

    Alemany played against Notre Dame, though the score was not a blow out like Amat, they had no week off. Its a home game.

    Amat’s bye week could be the reason they are either sharp or rusty. Thats the scary part. I dont think anyone like’s bye weeks especially with this type of game.

    Winner: Amat 35 to 34

  • AMAT WILL LOSE

    TO SMALL PUPPY. AMAT IS GOING DOWN WITH A WIMPER AND THEN YOU WILL LOSE IN THE PLAYOFFS LIKE EVERY YEAR.

  • Rankings are important?

    Rankings:

    The last time WC won CIF(Fall of 04′)they went into the playoffs as a third “seed”… that is 3rd in league behind South Hills and Walnut.

    and just two short years later in the first round WC played #1 seed (10-0 Mayfair) @ Ron Yary Stadium. 48 minutes later the Moonsoons were 10-1.

    Truthfully, with the way the brackets are built… there is very little difference in the placement for the first 4 positions. If the first four “stay alive” 1 will play 4 and 2 will play 3… and the odds are a coin flip will determine the home team in those semi-finals.

  • db lover

    upset of the week Diamond Bar beats West Covina. With Henry Omana finnally starting at QB anything is possible for DB

  • the critic

    Man look this is how its going to play out, Alemany wins and wins big the warriors blow threw the serra league with only one contested game against a rebuilding Notre Dame team but once the warriors found their groove it was over. As for all the hype about the Battle of the un-beatens well lets just say for Alemany it was just another day on the job for them. Alemany wins easily as the Amat Lancers looked confused and in over their heads. Alemany wins easily…….

    ALEMANY 38 AMAT 17 MY PREDICTION….

  • CIF KILLERS DIAMOND BAR

    upset of the week Diamond Bar beats West Covina. With Henry Omana finnally starting at QB anything is possible for DB.
    My predication DB 45-WC 35

  • just sayin’

    I cannot wait to hear “the critic” next Saturday.

  • CIF KILLERS DIAMOND BAR

    West Covina will still win league even if they lose to Diamond Bar thats why West Covina met go easy. Well that kid Omana will lead his team to the CIF they just have to not play #2 Andrew Cameron. And throw the ball not run it. All they need to do is pass the ball to #17 george katrib and #24 brandon sanchez.

  • @CIF KILLERS

    I can actually imagine that even though most likely it won’t happen. If that does happen, what happens to West Co??

  • Amat Dad

    Well sports fans, does it get any better? Two teams both ranked top 10. Both undefeated fighting it out for the Serra league title what a matchup!
    I guess you can say I’m a little bias, just a little. However I’m going to give the edge to Team Blue. Alemany’s team has too many starters that play on both sides of the line and Bishop will wear them down in end. I see a well contested game for 3 quarters then the Lancers pulling away in the 4th. It won’t be a landslide, it will be close but our boys conditioning will be a major factor. They’re conditioned to go 4 quarters + overtime if necessary. LANCERS 38 WARRIORS 28…

    Different team/s, different year, same results, an Amat victory. I’m glad that you’ve been waitin for a whole year, looks like you’ll be waitin for another year and or years. While your waitin, stop hatin, and start relatin, and recognize whose the best, Bishop Amat, not Alemany.

    Case closed, end-of-story!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Midvalley truth.

    First of all lets clear something up… just becuase this team beat that team, does not mean that this team will beat that team. If that was too slick for you..here it is again.

    Covina beat > San Dimas beat> Monrovia Does not= Covina beats > Monrovia.

    If that was the case they could say…

    Monrovia Beat> South Hills Beat>Claremont Beat> Chino Hills= Monrovia beats> Chino Hills.

    Stop using that dum argument…Sports never works that way. Its about Matchups and who plays well on that night. You sound silly when you use that analogy. If you want to crown Covina #1 do it! Hell we been looking at Azusa on top forever.

    Being the #1 seed does not mean you are the best team nor have the easiet route.

    Who care’s who#1 in the midvalley. Covina will win their first round game along with 3 out of the top 4 seeds. San Dimas and Maranatha will be at large births.This means that two of the top 4 will be playing these two top teams. Did you read arams blog? So if Azusa or Arrpyo draw San Dimas, or Monrovia draws Maranatha is that a easier route? The 2nd round in the midvalley is going to be brutal. So Really, a top seeding may make you feel good, but it could give you a tough first round games. Remember The Montview, Rio Hondo, and Mission Valley’s #2′s are weaker than the Olympic’s and Valle Vista’s #3′s. So if you are not a a top four seed, you may have a easier 1st game. So Really I would not put anyting on the seedings. I would be ready to play whomever. Last time I checked you get recognized for Being league champ and CIF. Their is no award for being #1 in the rankings. There is no where to hide in the Midvalley. YOu still have to win four games, and you are still going to play someone! So get ready to prove yourself!

    Does anyone with a real life really go out there and post these types of commets other than our old friend Amnot/SGVBest (or what ever he wants to call him self now ?).

    should be an interesting week

    critic,
    Well you got one thing right about posting your prediction so everyone can laugh because that is one hell of a joke. You as well as I know Alemany will not blow out the Lancers. Your posts have that feeling of someone writing checks they can’t can’t back up . Your warriors better come to this game in the groove because once the Lancers start pounding on them they will have nowhere to look nor the time to look for it because they will be chasing the Men in Blue up and down the field all night. AMAT WILL SHINE .

    Hey Critic, Thanks BUT….we don’t need locker room poster board material to get up for this game. We have been prepping for over a week now! As of 10-29-10 at approx. 10PM to be exact. We will be there and we are brininging along a few “Family” members as well. The Bishop Amat 12th MAN will be out in force for this one! Here’s a chance for you guys to make some money so you may want to bring in some extra bleachers because your stadium looks worse than ours over the internet!!! Believe me when I say The Lancers are eager, hungry and ready for this game! We have been waiting for this game for NINE DAYS NOW! On the 13th day WE BRING IT!!! See you there!!!

    We haven’t had a good “Sunday Tribbin” joke in a while – and jcaz is either slacking or discouraged with his comedy career. So…

    I had a nightmare that “the critic”, DRanchhhh”, and “KH” were carpooling on their way to watch the Lancers in the CIF Finals after each of their schools were eliminated and got in a horrific car accident and go to heaven. When they get there, St. Peter says, “We only have one rule here in heaven: don’t step on the Bulldogs!”

    So they enter heaven, and sure enough, there are Bulldogs all over the place. It is almost impossible not to step on a Bulldog, and although they try their best to avoid them, the KH accidentally steps on one.

    Along comes St. Peter with the ugliest woman he ever saw.

    St. Peter chains them together and says, “KH your punishment for stepping on a Bulldog is to spend eternity chained to this ugly woman!” The next day, DRanchhh steps accidentally on a Bulldog and along comes St. Peter, who doesn’t miss a thing. With him is another extremely ugly woman. He chains them together with the same admonishment as for KH.

    “The critic” has observed all this and, not wanting to be chained for all eternity to an ugly woman, is very, VERY careful where he steps.

    He manages to go months without stepping on any Bulldogs, but one day St. Peter comes up to him with the most beautiful woman he has ever laid eyes on. St. Peter chains them together without saying a word.

    “The critic” says, “Wow, I wonder what I did to deserve being chained to you for all of eternity?”

    The woman says, “I don’t know about you, but I stepped on a Bulldog!”

    Joe Amat,
    Thank-you! That was great!

  • AMAT 73

    That was a good one Joe .

  • My Pal Joey

    Joey once again the Master schools the Pupil.

    Jcaz, take notes! Too funny! “she stepped on a Bulldog” !!!

    Joey “if” you’re going to be at the Alemany game any chance I get put on the sideline list? If not how about a “guest” pass to save on $$$$, lol

    Seems the least you can do with all that power you possess.

    The last time I set foot on that A;emany field was my first Varsity “start”. I actually came in after the first series but sprung four traps that night that went for TDs …so I expect the Lancers to roll.

    The way I see it…”IF” Salesian could kick the crap out of Alemany why can’t Bishop Amat. Make sure and call the coin toss in Spanish…seems to unrattle them, lol. Hey it worked for us as Ruedaflortes yelled at them in Spanish all night. That’s a true story no matter what MTC says. Seemed Coach told us they “hated Mexicans”. Maybe it was a “motivational” tool but that night we busted them up bad as one player after another quit or was helped off the field. True story.

    Got to admit I’m in awe of the “morphing” you guys do week in and week out. Blowing out teams is unreal given the Dominguez game which tested your team’s resolve this year as things got hairy early and you guys came back and late and you guys held tough.

    Going to be tough NOT giving POY and COY to Bishop Amat this year/ Seems the Lancers are ALWAYS held to a higher standard, as it should be.

    Any thoughts on Jay Anderson and his decision NOT to play this year. Hey I’m all in favor of it being his call but what a “ride” he missed. Seems he replaced Elgin Baylor on my “retired one year to early “list. Never thought anyone would beat Elgin but Jay did.

    All kidding aside. it will be a great game.

    …now about that sideline pass?

    BTW went to see Workman play Duarte and Azusa these past two weeks, seeing that those are the top and bottom of that league, and coaching matters. Talk about humble pie, they lost 28-0 to BASSETT!!!! If that doesn’t speak volumes …NOTHING WILL> Too bad Fred and Aram passed on that BASSETT WIN. Painful, to say the least.

    One thing I will say is Fred should get out to more games and write “real” stories about Friday Nigt Lights. Gotta hand it to the Workman Boosters and Fans…they “believe”!!!

    Too many times we concentrate on SCOREBOARD and forget it’s all about the kids, their parents and the fans who just “love their alma mater”. When I went to see Bobby Miles play I knew Workman was a great community…hopefully Morrison learns to take that stick out of his rear and looses up. To much “familia” not to.

    Anyway my son just made a USC team. Imagine that!!!! Going to compete with USC on his chest. Never would have thought it possible. Kid’s amazing, graduates in four years from one of the best schools in the land, from one of the best Business schools in the world and now finds time to end his senior season as only he can, on “his” terms. Too bad blogging kept him from his Green Jacket…that’s okay he’ll be a Trojan for life and that ain’t chopped liver.

    Gotta get a copy of your boy’s thesis if I can some day. Wasn’t it about cultural aspects in Sports? Great topic.

    My prediction for the Alemany vs Bishop Amat game…easy. Lot’s of PAIN!

    Best of luck in teh playoffs. One scary thing going is is Welch. Did you see what he’s done this year? How about teh Srvite game. Hey Joey…does Coaching Matter or what?

    Enjoy my friend.
