    @ prep fan – dv is 3rd palce in bval. i think they have a great chance of knocking out srv. i believe freedom will win against granada. the pitt and heritage game will be interesting. i see heritage coming out on top.

  • PVspartan

    I wasnt raw Hammond, I loved football and worked my ass off. I played D2. I went the juco route and got everything I could out of football. It paid for most of my education. I was a 5-10 280lbs guard/center in college so I was limited to say the least.

    Hammond, did you play?

    EB football- To tell you the truth, I think the BVAL is the second best league around. Right now there just cant be much bragging comeing out of the BVAl corner with Pitt doing what they did, but we will see this weekend. I think my responses have been geared towards BVAL expert rather than the league itself. I read this stuff and like to think the people on the other end have some idea of what theyre talking about and sometimes I get frustrated when its clear they dont.

    Pinole could compete in the BVAL and possibly have won it this year. Very fast, very big and about 150 years of coaching experience on the varsity sideline.

    I CAN TELL BY THE things YOU SAY
    U are a RAH Rah dude no talent but alot on dedication – teachers pet type LOL
    ( you know what the say DEDICATION WITHOUT TALENT IS A DAYDREAM TALENT WITHOUT DEDICATION IS A NIGHTMARE)

  • PVspartan

    I am a rah rah guy, I get fired up. First time ive ever been called a teachers pet. I like to think I was somewhat talented, not everyone can play college football even on the D2 level.

  • EB Football Coach

    PVspartan,

    5’10″ 280? Reminds me of this guy I played with in college. He showed up as a freshman 6’1″ 315lbs. He was a beast when run blocking, not so much pass blocking. He was also the world’s first perfectly square man. Good luck to Pinole this weekend.

    Prep Fan – What I was saying is that the BVAL 1-6 is comparable, this year, to the EBAL 3-8. #1 and #2 are untouchable by most any team in the Bay Area with the exception of Valley Christian.

  • Washingtonhusky

    Who wants to talk about Washington in the d2 bracket? Las lomas at home in round one any thoughts? Check out their schedule this year. They played almost the entire d1 bracket minus dls. Can we get off the accl and encinal for two seconds? I would love to see a concord – Washington game. Let’s return this discussion to the south of the section for a minute please. I’m tired of reading about all of these fanboys.

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see a Washington-Pinole Valley 2nd round game. Washington does play a rigorous schedule / better than their record. Speaks well they hung in there with Cal in a respectable preseason loss.

  • Scl alum

    Anybody see Acalanes beating San Rafael tomorrow night at San Rafael?

  • Scl alum

    To the traveling road Warriors of Del Norte heading south, a good coffee refresher heading south is the Coffee Critic in north Ukiah on State Street. Those guys don’t mess around with their coffee..

  • Prep Fan

    EB Football Coach re: #105 – I see what you saying. Those would be some good games. I see Livermore beating Antioch and AV beating Liberty as Livermore already beat Liberty this year. MV beat Pitt once, but Pitt might fare better this time a year. The other 3 would also be very good games.

    EBAL #3 Monte Vista – BVAL #1 Pitt
    4 Foothill – 2 Heritage
    5 Granada – 3 Deer Valley
    6 SRV – 4 Freedom
    7 AV – 5 Liberty
    8 Livermore – 6 Antioch

  • footballfan415

    yes scl i see acalanes beating sr tommorrow……SR has 9 wins but havent been tested yet in 9 games….i think acalanes is more battles tested if they can rattle SR early, SR will be in trouble…..but if SR gets up early and they get their swagger early they will win

  • Scl alum

    Yeah Footballfan, I agree. Acalanes’ 5-5 record is a bit misleading, losing to tough teams like Miramonte, Healdsburg, Alhambra, and BEATING a good Ygnacio Valley team early on. But we will definitely find out tomorrow if San Rafael can overcome their Rodney Dangerfield current state..

  • Scl alum

    Kinda interesting too, that 9 out the 10 teams Acalanes has played this year are in the NCS playoffs (only exception Dublin High)

  • Scl alum

    Dang..Vacaville has put up 69 pts or more their last 5 games. Would be interesting if you had a D2 championship between Vacaville and Concord (if hypothetically both schools played in the same Section)

  • 4thDown

    @ HASaClue – post #80

    “Lets put the two best of the Bval against each other so they will nock each other off and maybe two Ebal schools will get another week to play. what a set up.”

    exactly! you’re on point on this one. they wanna give ebal the best chances possible to move ahead. you know if srv, foothill, granada had to face either pitt or heritage in the first round. there is a great chance any of those ebal teams won’t make it the second round.
