Tribskin Pick’em, your predictions and ours

Today’s pairings story: Two local teams rode strong regular seasons to No. 1 seeds when the CIF-Southern Section office released football playoff pairings on Sunday morning. Undefeated Azusa (10-0) was given the No. 1 seed in the Mid-Valley Division. The Aztecs will host Village Christian (6-4) on Friday night at Citrus College.

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 (14-4); Ramirez (14-4).
Season: Robledo (167-50); Ramirez (162-55).


Last week: I lead Steve by five after the regular season. We both had a so-so week, both missing on Alemany over Bishop Amat and Claremont over Damien. I got him taking Charter Oak over South Hills and Baldwin Park over Northview, but he got me right back taking Bonita over Diamond Ranch and Rosemead over El Monte — two games I shouldn’t of missed, but oh well.

This week: Finally, the playoffs have arrived and the game that sticks out like a sore thumb is San Dimas at Arroyo. As much as I lover the heart of a defending champion, I’m going with Arroyo because they’re at home, QB Steven Rivera hasn’t lost as a starter this year, and I don’t agree with Aram suggesting maybe they should have tanked a game to avoid San Dimas. If you’re a player, you want the challenge. You have to go through everyone anyway, might as well get it over with in round one. Knights coach Jim Singiser will have them ready — he has too. For whatever reason, it feels like the night San Dimas went to Rosemead in 2008 and got smacked. It won’t go down exactly like that, but watch how the Knights rise to the occasion in their first real step-up game with the talented junior at QB. I found it interesting that Amat is only a 28-21 CalPreps projection winner over Tesoro. Those looking at the second round should stop right there, Tesoro’s one of those “on any given Friday” dangerous teams. One week they’re whipping South Hills 59-6 and the next they’re losing to Chino Hills. They lost two straight entering the playoffs, one a 30-7 loss to power Mission Viejo. The good news is Tesoro doesn’t throw the ball around the park like Alemany did, they mix it up, which plays into Amat’s hands and at home, where they haven’t lost in three years, no way I’m going against the Lancers. Azusa is a 15-point favorite over Village Christian, but more importantly, if the Aztecs are a real contender, and I think they’re, the top seed must take care of business. You don’t allow just 30 points all season and lose in round one. I’m on the Aztecs bandwagon, they will get it done. Bonita is a 48-3 calpreps projection winner over California — take that to the bank. Finally, those going fishing absolutely and without question are Charter Oak, Gladstone and Diamond Ranch, just think their opponents are too tough on the road. West Covina and Covina are slam dunks and those with the potential for upsets include La Puente over Mayfair, and Walnut over La Serna, though I picked both to lose.

    Fred,
    Do you know the status on Zach Shay???

  • Observantcat

    By upset you mean LaPuente over Maranatha?…not Mayfair…. get some rest Fred you work too hard.

  • Chino Hills

    Norco,

    What kind of a game can we expect from Corona?. I’m sure you can give us a fair appraisal. Stat wise they appear to be a good team that plays in a tough league.

  • sgv

    muffpack: WOW O WOW….Damien????? I was at the game friday night and i must say Damien looked Great! They answered back with every pass Kessler threw….Good job Damien, with the Win and with the low penalty yards with claremont you need to keep the stripes out of the game! Someone please explain to claremonts QB that when needed he may run out of the pocket and possibly run for a first down instead of settling for a punt ,or you will not get far in the playoffs..just a lil heads up…you hear that?? oh wait a minute it was my neighbors doggie howling….

  • 12th man

    Alemany has a easier road into reaching the finals..Amat would have to face Mission Viejo in the semifinals a team who has been ranked #1 all season & is running on all cylinders..Servite looked suspect vs Mater Dei & would have been a better matchup for BA in the semis…I still think that if all goes well & Amat does reach the semis..You have to put Rio somewhere in the secondary he has the experience but most importantly you have to give yourself a chance to win with the most athlectic player on your team! I know you start asking yourself?? Well do we really want to put our starting qb on defense risking the chance he mite get hurt??..This is the playoffs one loss & your done…so you really cant afford not to take that chance! All of theese powerhouses in the southland do it..they put in there starting rb,qb,wr, to go both ways thats what makes them dominating..although you mite see 60 to 70 players on the sideline there really only using like 15 to go both ways..there using the most athletic kids on the squad to dictate the game!! Anyways good luck to Amat & all the teams in the SGV we got your back!~

  • JFR

    Chino Hills,

    Spoke with your coach yesterday and his concerns are their tailback and how physical they play on defense.

  • Don

    Here’s some takes on the Southeast:

    Best first round draw: Bonita gets CalHi
    Runner Up: West Covina gets Bellflower

    Worst first round draw: Mayfair gets Diamond Ranch
    Runner Up: La Mirada gets Muir

    Best game: Norwalk and Arcadia
    Runner Up: Burbank and Santa Fe

    Best chance for an upset: Muir over La Serna
    Runner Up: Burbank over Santa Fe

    Most likely to get a TD by reserves: Bonita
    Runner Up: La Serna

    The one thing I’d like to see before the finals: Andrew Buenrostro and Garrett Pendleton in the same game. Put aside my personal history with La Serna, which goes back over 40 years and Bonita, which only goes back a decade or so, and I just want to see two 6’5 QB’s. I’m still not convinced they aren’t the same guy.

    You KNOW what I want for Christmas.

  • 1st and goal

    12th man,
    Why dont we move Rio over to play wide receiver as well. He can drop back in the pocket and throw a high Hail Mary and run down field and get under the pass for a TD right? Get real. What needs to happen is to put the more experienced players in the secondary (SS, FS). Those spots are too young to be playing there in this arena. You have 2 seniors that are just as capable if not more prepared to handle the call. If you recall 2 years ago you had Acuna who started at safety. And you also have Xochihua who has played very well this year in a supporting role and starter on Special teams. The corners are giving up way too much yardage off the LOS allowing the receivers to get at least 7 years on every down when they make a catch. Too many times these kids have been beat by that coverage. Its time to make some changes.

    We got a pretty good draw for the playoffs but we are in the upper bracket with Centennial. If we can get by Corona, I like our chances in the 2nd round. Corona is a good team who has lost 4 of their 5 games to very good teams – Mission Viejo, Centennial, Norco & Roosevelt. I was hoping we’d get Murietta Valley or Redlands instead. This division is pretty strong, no real “weak” teams. I think it is the 2nd toughest next to the Pac5 in the state. I have watched some of Corona’s games with my son. They have a small, shifty TB who runs hard and they are pretty physical on D. If we play the way we have been playing the last 4 games, I think our chances are good. Good Luck to all teams in the playoffs.

  • Just Observing

    Arroyo over San Dimas???? That is the joke of the year. Arroyo is way overrated. They have played only 1 decent team and got smoked (Hart who is 5-5 and no playoffs), with or without there QB. San Dimas will handle Arroyo with ease. You heard it here first!!!!!

  • 12th man

    1st and goal,
    SmartAss!@! Dont you think that if we had more experienced players we would have already put them in?? Good thing your not a coach!!~ Your not giving Hags enough credit!~ Why would we want to experiment during the playoffs??? By putting in guys who have never played the secondary during the regular season That doesnt make any sense..All im saying, that if the game is on the line and its the 4th quarter and the other team needs a prayer answered by throwing a hailmary to win..You should have Rio back there to defend!!..He has proven over the last couple of years that when the game is on the line he’s the go to guy!! Jerry M. went to him every time we needed a touchdown late in the game or if the game was on the line he proved he can deliver!! His hands are like magnets to the ball & his athleticism speaks for itself..You see how it turned out last year when Rio was hurt for the Lakewood game!! Like i said..You have to put your most athletic guy your biggest playmaker if you want to come even close to
    making it to the finals..& yes this includes going both ways!! He did it last year!!~

    CH Husky Fan…

    You are correct in your assessment of Corona…Corona has some good athletes at the skill postions & #1 their TB is a shifty little dude with some speed, he hits the hole fast and likes to cutback…Their QB is decent and can throw a good ball, OL has some decent size & can get a good push…IMO Key to stopping their offensive is not to over pursue & pressure the QB…Defensively they are aggressive with DE #11 Wilson 6`4 235lbs, DT #6 James 6`1 260lbs, & DT #50 5`11 278lbs & #23 DE Davidson 5`11 210lbs…these four form a pretty good DL…

    Its not unheard of??? Heres just one example of a big time program that uses the QB to go both ways…

    A two-way quarterback
    Interboro’s Smith runs the offense and defense.
    By Kate Harman

    For The Inquirer

    Adam Smith knew he eventually would get a chance to be the starting quarterback for Interboro. He was just going to have to wait.

    While he was waiting for a chance to prove he could be a premier high school quarterback, Smith wreaked havoc as a defensive back, amassing 77 tackles and five interceptions in his junior season.

    Now, Smith will spend his senior year at the helm of a Buccaneers team that has won the Del-Val League title 12 years in a row.

    “I give my seniors a first shot,” Interboro coach Steve Lennox said about Smith deciding to play both quarterback and defensive back this year. “I try to be loyal to my kids. You wait your time, and when your time comes, produce.

    “This is his turn now. I expect him to have a big year,” Lennox added.

    Smith played quarterback three years ago for the freshman team, and as a sophomore, he saw time only at safety. Last season, Smith was also the backup quarterback and knew he would be next in line for the starting position.

    But he wasn’t sure if Lennox would allow him, as quarterback, to play both sides of the ball. Lennox surprised Smith by permitting a quarterback to play defense for the first time since Smith joined the squad.

    “He is an athlete and has heart,” Lennox explained. “I think he’s a winner. He steps it up in big games – he’s a money player.”

    “It is a big deal to play quarterback,” Smith said. “But a way bigger dream would be if we won the district championship this year.”

    Last year, Interboro went 5-0 in the league and 12-1 overall, winning the Del-Val title for the 15th time in the 17 seasons Lennox has been head coach.

    “You have to have pride to play football at Interboro,” senior guard and defensive tackle Zack McMenamin said. “We want to keep winning, don’t want to be the team to lose it.

    “Everyone is looking to beat us,” he added. “There definitely is pressure.”

    Even with all the pressure of being a first-year starting quarterback and the prestige surrounding Interboro football, Smith knows he can’t focus too much on just one side of the ball. He plans to use his experience as a vocal leader to help transition more smoothly.

    “I’m basically the quarterback of the defense. I call out the coverages, talk to the linebackers,” Smith said. “I did that all last year. I know the defense like the back of my hand.”

    Last when Rio got hurt, they put in a Freshman. There were other players that had been playing that position behind Rio and Cazarez. But in comes this kid that only played that position as a freshman. WTH? Some kids have been working their butts off all season and got slapped in the face with this move. Whatever, that game and season is over. Moving on to this NEW season that we have. I think Rio needs to stay where he is because if he was to come in as a SS/FS and got hurt again, our chances are lessened with him out. keep him where he is and let the other kids step up. Its the heart that is going to determine the outcome of this and all other games coming up.

  • 12th man

    1st and goal,
    I can see your concern..but heart has nothing to do with athleticism!! Either you have it or you dont!! The problem with Amat’s db’s is that there not breaking towards the ball..kinda like there scared..there waiting for the recievers to catch the ball & then make the tackle..Heart will tackle the reciever in hopes that the WR doesnt make you look bad after he catches it! Athleticism will prevent the ball from ever being caught & you dont have to worry about the tackle…Lets face it..Amat has maybe 2 or 3 interceptions all season & thats because the QB has overthrown the ball..They have yet to jump a route or instinctively read a pattern on defense to allow them to go for the pick..Thats because “Heart” cant teach you that! I just looked up the definition of Defensive Back & it Read: “Definition: A member of the defensive secondary. Defensive backs generally try to keep receivers from making catches. Safeties, cornerbacks, nickel backs, and dime backs are considered to be defensive backs.” OK!~ did you read the part where it says to try to keep recievers from MAKING CATCHES?? It didnt say to tackle the opposition after they already made the catch! Anyways thats just my opinion..I know theres no way Rio would go both ways..I only hope that if a situation would rise where BA needs to make a stop deep into the game & you know the other team has to pass because they are working against the clock..Hags mite consider putting Rio in to make the biggest defensive stop in his coaching carrer!! This would make him look like a Genius..

  • 12 is a “player’s number” !!!

    12th man what school “didn’t” you play at?

    Trying to give DA “coaching” tips? Really?

    I think the knowledge he gained playing in the NFL might be more than sufficient.

    Try and focus on the fact that next year these same DBs will be Amat’s strongest asset. Mark my words, these kids are pretty special.

    Enjoy the 9-1 season a bit more. Maybe the seniorsyou speak of played in the blow out games every one always talks about when teh starters are pulled shortly after half, lol.

    Any way kewep it going…you’re entertaining as helllll !

  • AMAT 73

    12th man,
    What is the point of rehashing this about the DB’s . As many have pointed out we win and lose as a team . You can get the film and break it down however you want to see it . The QB at the same time with his scrambling maybe had to run around like he did because those receivers were covered for the alloted time for a pass play to be run and after he starts to scramble anything can happen . One of those catches in the end zone and I am pretty sure it was the one off the turnover before the half was just an excellent effort and catch by the Alemany player going for the ball .Allowing that much time to a QB and especially one with that talent is a recipe for bad things to happen and they did. I am sure the staff will disect the film and move people around to prevent this from happening in the next game.If it means spot playing Rio in the backfield I am sure they will make the move because as of Friday there is no tomorrow unless you win . You know damn well Tesoro will try to exploit our DB’s but I believe the DB’s will perform much better this week without a doubt.

  • BigDog

    Thank You Freddie

    Thats all i wanted to here from you.

  • 12th man

    Im also an Amat fan..but it seems like your all in denial!..Im sure the db’s mite get better by next year or the year after..but what about now??? This is our chance this is our opportunity to do something special..I dont see them having any problems against Tesoro & to say that the coverage was goood against Alemany is a joke…I dont know if you’ve noticed but it was in all the papers that the QB from alemany was a dual threat! He was expected to run thats what he does..He does it to all the teams he plays..In any event i guess the coverage was also good against Crespi where they only allowed 4 big plays 3 of them for scores..My beef isnt with any of you parents or coaches or players from Amat..I enjoy watching BA football, i have no ties to the school,I dont know any of the players or coaches personally so one could arguably say that my opinion is not biased!..Amat73 i trust your judgement in that the coaching staff will make the necessary adjustments to prevent the big plays from happening.. one last thing my opinions are solely based on what i have seen & i have been to every BA game this year!! This will be the last discussion on the db’s because everyone is always going to have a different outlook..Good Luck BA!! Im sure they will do just fine this week considering the QB is only averaging 86 yards per game…So expect alot of run plays & expect our run defense to shut them down

  • smallcity

    “Official” rating sites have Amat as as leass than a touchdownfavorite. The folks on the OC blogs think Amat will win this one easy, and they are the ones that follow OC football. Amat +14

  • AMAT 73

    12th man,
    No one is in denial about anything . We instead try to focus on the positives and not harp on the weakness because in the end it is up to the staff to make the required adjustments. We know and see what happened as well as you did but to lay blame solely on the DB’s is wrong. If you know football and by your posts you seem to there was much more to it then just the DB’s getting beat. It’s not like these guys were blowing past them or faking them out with fantastic moves . Most of the damage was done on broken plays . I still feel if not for the turnovers there would have been a different outlook . Not making excuses by any means because we got beat , but when you spot a team like Alemany or any good team for that matter 7-14 points via turnovers the outlook does not look good.

  • Amat On Looker

    12th man – Give it a rest Bro….No in-fighting or is that what you want? Rio is a fine player but to diminish what this young secondary has done thus far is really a shame. That was a very good QB last Friday and to allow a player like that excess time to throw only makes the job of the secondary harder. You cannot tell me that putting any other player in the secondary on Friday night would have given AMAT the win. Too many things went wrong and we/AMAT comitted way to many mistakes that night. The funny/good thing is…We were still in the game at the end? Get on the Band Wagon or Get Off! We Win as a team and we Lose as a team. That includes all Family members too! We don’t need you coming on here trying to point fingers at players and stirring up bad feelings. If someone is able to step up and EARN a spot, they will do it in practice this week. Support the team or move on, Please. Go Amat Lancers!!!

  • Joe Amat

    smallcity – I spoke to a Tesoro asst on Sunday and he said honestly…”We’re one and done” The Santa Margarita performance is one, he admitted, they were unable to repeat in any other game throughout the year – one of those rivalry anomalies.

    We have to come to play for sure – but it is a typical Pac5 top 4 seed 1st round game. Anyone can win, but…

Better yet go watch the video on how your team got anialated, beat down, & shut out!! Didnt hear from you after that! Lmao~ Can you say Corona Centennial? Didnt think so!

    The only thing funnier than seeing an Amat loss, is seeing an Amat catfight. Seriously Gasbag 73 vs Know it all 12 in smackdown 2010. Grandpa you have to learn to moderate and police your own and Girlfriend 12 lose the crush on the athletic QB with dreamy eyes and quit trolling the hermaphrodite bars thinking you are doubling your chance to get lucky. And don’t have a hissy fit on me cuz girlfriend I don’t hit soft. Usually we don’t see this much inbred in-fighting until after the Amat playoff loss. Thanks for the comic relief and see you girls in the stands.

    Amats Dbs are very young and have made mistakes,but they have played well the whole season.they did a good job against Crespi . they are facing some great quarterbacks and receivers this year .they are very athletic but very young and mistakes will happen.

    “I enjoy watching BA football, i have no ties to the school,I dont know any of the players or coaches personally…”

    I know nothing would please you more, but no “inbred fighting” here. Just someone from the inside trying to “educate” a casual fan

    The Chef

    12 Man is not affiliated w/ Bishop Amat. Perhaps you should spend more time reading people’s posts before you decide to make an ass out of yourself. Sorry to dissapoint you but there is no “Amat cat fight”

    And Amat lost to the 8th ranked team in the entire state of California and the champion of the 2nd most difficult league in California. I know it’s hard for any Fishbowler to understand this concept or grasp the weight of this, but give it a try ok? Considering there are no undefeated SGV teams….who did YOUR school lose to and what was THEIR state ranking?

    hmmmm? Now this is the part where you ignore me or claim to be from some school outside the SGV LOL! Typical hater behavior…

    chef,
    Get back in the kitchen and do what you do best , scrubbing pots and pans. You are nothing but another in the long line of haters. Been there done that with your types. Just continue to follow AMAT football to fullfill your life and happiness. Just think if it wasn’t for AMAT what would you be doing. Glad to know we again make someones life happy. Like I have always said , love us or hate us we are always in your head . Peace brother.

  • Smallcity

    Joe, I thought about the comment made by the Tesoro assistant and thought to myself “typical coach talking down his team, hoping that the opposing team will take them lightly (shades of Poly in ’08). But when I really thought about it, it was really an eye opening statement. It’s NOT typical coach speak to say “we’re not going to win.” “They’re a very good team and we’ll give it our best shot… Luckily we made it this far and hopefully we can advance…If we play a perfect game we have a chance.” Those are the kind of comments you usually hear so to hear something like “we’re one and done” is indeed VERY rare.

    You are however correct. As much as I like Amat by 14, anything can happen. At this point, the difference between any of the PAC-5 teams is not all that great. Speaking of which, it may rain Friday night and with common thinking, that may neutralize Amat’s speed, especially on Defense.

    Tesoro could cause some match up problem for Amat but in the end I have Amat prevailing. If anyone is expecting a blow out, dont. I watched the Tesoro / Mission Viejo tape last nite for about a half and they were hanging very close with MV. I dont know if Tesoro was that good or Mission Viejo was just playing bad. With Mission V. up 14-0 with one of those scores coming on a fumble recovery. For the most part Tesoros defense is what keeps them in games. The offense looked out of sync and the QB does not look all that spectacular. Amats defense vs Tesoros Offense is advantage Amat. The big question here is how often and how fast can Amat score on this stingy Defense Tesoro has. Watch for Tesoros sideline to be filled with players. They carry around a 100 man roster.
