I cover mostly San Jose State football for the San Jose Mercury News/Bay Area News Group, but also fill in from time to time with the 49ers, Warriors, A's and Giants.

    Oh yeah, that was classic….hahahahahaha….that showed us all how really behind the times (got to appreciate the pun) we all were.

  • eastbayscout

    yes CP will have to…i was thinking they had only 2 losses..i guess newark could sneak back into there with a 7-3 record maybe since they beat them, but the fact they lost to both wash and logan won’t go over well…granada would prob be first choice IF they can beat livermore and amador…that will be 2 tough games…amador will have to beat foothill and then granada then they might have a shot as well…antioch is a dark horse, but at 5-5 or 6-4 i dont see them getting in.thye will ahve to go 7-3

  • eastbayscout

    so who are everyones picks for the big league matchups?

    Monte Vista v De La Salle (De La 35-24)
    Freedom v Pittsburgh (Pitt 35-28)
    Logan v Washington (Toss Up)
    CP v Clayton Valley (CP 35-31)
    Encinal v. St Patrick (Encinal 21-7)
    Camp v. Los Lomas (Los Lomas 28-21)

    remember the rain could severly effect all of these games this weekend..rain definately will hurt monte vista, freedom, washington, los lomas because they are throwing teams.

  • Kyle Bonagura

    scout- I agree with all your picks except I think CV will stay unbeaten. Last week’s showing by CP was brutal…. and I’ll go with Logan against Washington — no toss ups allowed! I’d give the Huskies a better chance at Tak, but I just don’t see them going to the concrete field and beating Logan, even though the talent level between the two teams is as close as it has been in years.

    I also think Encinal wins by 28 against SPSV.

  • EBAL Fan

    To be honest, throwing teams are not as bothered in the rain as people think. The advantage actually increases in the rain because the receivers know where they are going and when footing becomes an issue, it hurts the DB’s because it’s harder to track when you are slipping.

    I have seen some big passing games over the years in pretty bad conditions.

    It’s easier to fumble when it’s wet and DLS has had a problem this year again, holding on to the football.

  • HAL

    HAAL scoop, i think your list is pretty solid. But I am almost leaning toward Gardner over Carmona. However I am not sleeping on Carmona because he has done a great job at keeping his team afloat for the most part but I havent seen too many of his games. What gives me more confidence in Gardner is the fact he’s played tougher teams where as Tennyson has played the bottom of the barrel so far. We’ll see tonight (Well you’ll see, I’ll have to read about it tomorrow)

  • Michael Bower

    Sorry I haven’t gotten around to the HAAL all-league prediction thing. I am just way too busy to try to figure that out right now. But I will say, that list above with the names is missing Joshua Jackai of Mt. Eden. He leads the league in rushing and probably will be on first team. In honor of Ken Silman, Jackai is legit.
