Tribskin Pick’em, your predictions and ours: Bishop Amat’s stretch runs begins

Steve and I will go head-to-head in Tribskin Pick’em throughout the season for our annual dinner bet. I lead the overall series, two years to one.
Last Week: Robledo (15-3); Ramirez (16-2).
Season: Robledo (153-46); Ramirez (148-51).

Last week: Steve picked up a game and is making a run. He’s gone 36-3 over the past two weeks but I have a five-game lead going into week ten. We both lost taking Claremont over South Hills and Wilson over Pomona, and Steve picked up one by taking Chino Hills when I took Charter Oak. Nice that we both called Covina over San Dimas, but this week it gets tougher.

This week: How close is Bishop Amat-Alemany? Calpreps is predicting a 28-27 Amat victory. Alemany has a huge advantage being at home, but I’m taking Amat because of the extra week to prepare, and when you compare Serra scores, Alemany’s offense is averaging 29 points while the Lancers are averaging 41, which could be 50 if the Lancers’ offense played fourth quarters. The Lancers’ defense played well against Notre Dame, but they did give up 28 to Crespi and 31 to Loyola, which is a concern, especially with the playoffs beginning next week, but I think the Lancers will do enough to squeak it about. South Hills and Charter Oak is a doozy, but on paper, Calpreps gives the Chargers a 14-point advantage. I don’t think it’s that much, but I like the Chargers at home, though they haven’t been able to win a big game this season. This is a big game, but it’s not a step-up game, so take C.O. You want a surprise? I’m taking Diamond Ranch over Bonita, reason being I’m taking the team that runs and uses the clock over the team that throws it all over the park. Diamond Ranch has the athletes to match-up even though Calpreps is making Bonita a 24-point favorite, which is way, way too much. Other interesting picks, Claremont bounces back and beats Damien to clinch the top-seed in the Sierra and taking El Monte to surprise Rosemead and finish second in the Mission Valley League.

    Hold on tight,
    Let the ride begin!!!

    ON BLUE!!!

    Go Big Blue!

  • Juan

    Does anybody know where Alameny’s football field is located? Is it across the street from the school? Thanks!!

  • Don

    You need a different line of reasoning for your DRanch over Bonita pick Freddie.

    BoHi has actually run the ball 23 more times than they have thrown it this year. The scoring? 20 each rushing and receiving.

    Remember that score. You’ll be seeing it on the front page of the LA Times come Sat morning too.

    Remember you read it here first…

    I agree with all of Freds picks. Only pick I have shaky confidence in is DR. Feel Pomona is going to put up some serious numbers. Same for San Dimas. WesCo will get in front big early and switch to cruise control. I think CO and SH will be close and Gladstone will give Azusa their best game so far this season.

    Where is the football stadium at Alemany? Did a google earth search and could not see the stadium.

  • the critic

    Take my word this game will not be close we have been waiting a whole year to serve Bishop Amat their cold dinner and a bitter taste of revenge….

    Alemany 38 Bishop Amat 17….Vernon Adams Mvp of the serra league

  • dolt74

    what????no mention of mighty covina!!!!!!!!!that’s absurd they just dominated the valle vista league and sgv football. Can’t believe how soon evryone forgets after last weeks dominant performance.

  • Juan

    Thanks Don! Just saw it on google maps.

  • Colt74

    You picked a perfect sign-on.It sure beats your normal one. 4 articles, 4 threads about Covina and you can’t find anything to read? Colts got their face time. Now it’s about
    Bishop Amat and the other great teams playing this week. But, if you feel like you are going thru withdrawals you can watch Tom Kisses video as many times as you want. You can even download it so you can watch it with your girlfriends during your next Oprah book of the month club meeting. I know this week you were really looking forward to your copy of “Here’s a Happy Puppy” but I’m positive you all will like the Covina video better.

  • big dawg

    Hey critic,

    The only thing that your going to be eating, on friday night, after the game, is a mouth full-of-2nd place, and/or how it feels to be a loser, yet again!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Amat 36
    Alemany 14

    You haven’t forgot and neither did we!!!!!

    Different year, different team/s, same result, Amat “Serra League Champions”, case closed, end-of-story…….

  • Witness

    No pre-sale tickets will be sold. Field is across the street from Alamany.

    Bishop Amat 42
    Alemany(pasadena boys) 17

  • just sayin’

    You can always tell the programs that are for real contenders and ready for prime-time from those wannabes that are whistling in the dark and are pretenders. Alemany falls in the second category. How can you tell? Coaches who are not confident feel the need to try to pull the wool over your eyes by not posting stats on MaxPreps – as if they’re going to give away some secret. Coaches who are confident operate in full disclosure and feel – here’s what’s coming – try and stop us. Hagerty falls in that category. Check out the other top teams in the Pac-5. Amat by a bundle.

  • jcaz

    Belive it or not, Alemany’s stadium is actually much smaller (over all) than is Kiefer for the home side.

    If you want to get a decient seat, you had better get there early, bit even with that (if I remember correctly), the last time we were there, the visitors side was kinda offset as far as how they lined the seating with the filed.

    In other words, the visitors stands mostly sit off to one side of the the fifty yard line and it is not situated evenly on both sides.

    Another problem for the visitors side is that when our coaches use that hydraulic lift, it seems to always get in the way of your field of vision because they usually have to put it right in front of the stands.

    Over all, he seating sucks for the visitors side, but thank god that they have decent food there and lots and lots of toilets !

    Always the two most important things eh ?

    Take my word this game will not be close we have been waiting a whole year to serve Bishop Amat their cold dinner and a bitter taste of revenge….
    Alemany 38 Bishop Amat 17….Vernon Adams Mvp of the serra league

    them pasadena boys is gone run through Bishop Amat….with a pasadena boy winning serra league mvp Vernon Adams

  • just sayin’

    the critic – go back and check how many times any “pasadena boys” have run thru Amat in the past when the Lancers traditionally played Muir. results won’t change
    You seem to know the scoop – how did this “pasadena boys” make their way to the San Fernando Valley. Nothin’ shady goin’ on there is there? CIF was right when they chastised them upon Herringtons arrival with his “invite only” open house!

  • Danger Close Football

    the critic

    I’m not too convinced at your confidence in Alemany. Then again, I’m not convinced that you are an actual Alemany fan but I’m willing to play for another week. I know that comparative scoring is a dumb thing to do when comparing Serra teams and how they will perform…

    But…you have to admit…there is a huge difference between a 28-14 victory and a 52-0 victory (ND last TD came vs. Amat reserves in 3rd Q).

    Now I’m not saying that this comparative score will tell the future but I do believe that predicting an Alemany rout of Bishop Amat is a little far fetched given the comparative scores…would you not agree?

  • big dawg

    Stat Line Friday Night Bishop Amat Vs. Alemany

    Jalen Moore- 20+ carries-200+ yards-2 touchdowns
    Rio Ruiz- 20+ completions-250+ yards-4 touchdowns
    Wallace Gonzalez- 8+ receptions-100+ yards-2touchdowns
    Adam Sanchez- 6+receptions-80+yards-1touchdown
    Rest-of-the-blue-crew- 4+receptions-80+yards-1touchdown

    The hogs wear down Alemany’s line, the defense stays steady, but allows Alemany 24pts, to keep the game respectable.

    Amat wins 42 to 24, and the critic has to swallow his pride and admit Amat’s the champ, you can print that, case closed, end-of-story!!!!!!!!!

  • Balanced Attack

    Rio Ruiz stole the spotlight versus Notre Dame with his awesome aerial display. Wallace Gonzalez as well as the Amat D also had phenominal games.

    What was not mentioned was the fact that JALEN MOORE also ran for 170 yards on 18 carries, including a 71 yard TD run. Even if you take away the large TD run, Moore still averaged almost 6 yards a carry!

  • big dawg

    Hey Critic,

    Sounds like you have a bitter heart and need a hug, but I’m not giving you one!!!!!!

    After amat whups that a– on friday, u got a alot of explaining to do on how it feels to be a loser, yet again, you can print that. Case closed, end-of-story!!!!!!!

  • just sayin’

    the critic is more a pasadena fan than he is an Alemany fan. he’s been here popping off since the beginning of the year. now he’s just whistling in the dark because deep down – he’s a little worried. especially after struggling with Notre Dame last week with the Lancer coaches in the stands licking their chops. He just jumped on the Warrior bandwagon when the boys bought what Herringtons was selling. That happened during a downtime in Lancer lore and will not continue. this year Amat beats Muir and will follow up by beating Alemany then the pasadena kids reverse directions and start going to Amat.

  • Amat Dad

    critic, once again I’ll repeat my blog just as you have.
    It’s a good thing we’re living in an era of computers, just copy/paste your comments of having waited all year for revenge, you’ll be using them again next year after THE BIG BLUE MACHINE wears down the warriors this fri.

  • big dawg

    High fives/ shout outs to just saying and amat dad. The Critic is a loser and needs to stop writing that crap, hoping/praying, that somehow/someway their going to defeat the “Mighty Lancers”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not hapnin loser. Case closed, end-of-story.

  • Witness

    The critic is also known as notsince95. Same hater with the same message.

    Planning on going to the San Dimas-Wilson game tonight. Taking my clicker-counter to get a running tally of how many fights break out after hearing that a football game broke out during the Pomona-Wilson fights…

  • I was studying something else about this on another blog. Interesting. Your linear perspective on it is diametrically contradicted to what I read in the first place. I am still mulling over the opposite points of view, but I’m tipped to a great extent toward yours. And regardless, that’s what is so good about contemporary democracy and the marketplace of thoughts online.
