hayward is on a roll. was expected be to be 1-9 on the year and they havent played the easiest schedule and are 4-4(2-1) could easy be in 1st place in league right now undeafeated in league right now if they dont choke against bhigh 7-6
r u shitn me we lost 2 mt.eden man its time bring back the rock! kemper resign tomorrow you obviously cant get it done. kemper we are a program who has 3 levels plenty of support from adminastration & financial support what is the problem?
i cant believe we are in last place in the b league! please i beg you kemper step down get lost kick rock you suck! when you played 4 the hornets we sucked now you coach the hornets we suck get lost we’ve made no progress!bring back the rock!
i think the answer to your question about odowds most humiliating loss is not a game. its losing thier minds and letting perenon go. that program will slowly decline under nickerson and last night was a big indication of that.
An embarassing defeat. The issue that troubles me the most is that Hayward was not a good team. Nickerson will fail again in the NCS. Congrats to Coach P! Look at what he’s done in just a couple of seasons with a losing program.
In the same time that we witnessed Perenon bring Mt.Eden back to life. We have watched Nickerson kill O’Dowd’s good values & principles of morality and now in his 3rd year, he’s losing to teams we should defeat rather easily. Our moral character is contaminated with his poisonous views on how to play the game of football. We are rotting away on the inside under his leadership. He is a bad virus for for the morality of our school. The soul of Dragon football is dirty and needs to be cleaned. Or we should at least not be hypocritical in preaching morality on campus and in life, but not in the game of football.
With regards to BOD missing their starting QB…I believe Campolindo is missing their’s as well. It doesn’t take rocket science to figure out which team is adjusting well and which team is struggling. It’s obvious that it comes down to coaching not the athletes.
NCS screwed a few teams in playoff brackets last year.. what is this years D1 brackets gonna look like? 1-4 so far seem like a lock but what about after that??
1 – DLS
2 – Logan
3- MVista barring any late season collapse
4 – Cal same comment as above
5 – 9 who the hell will it be? Freedom, Foothill, Pitt, SRV, DV,
Might be Freedom but they barely beat Pitt, can they beat DV? Could of been Foothill but they lost to SRV and Freedom. Could be Pitt if Dv beats Freedom next week. Is SRv making a late season push.. DV is a stretch for 5…
How will 5-9 end up… .am I missing any contenders??
Mira- Odowd biggest loss of the year. Glad to see my boy Anderson for Miramonte
back in the saddle- 4 tds ain’t nothin’ to sneeze at.
Last nite it was a massacree like Daniel Boone says out at Winton Dr. There’s a couple of Spartans bustin’ some heads out there- one a very underated east bay best back in Vitale and another a USC bound Hutch with lots of bone-jarring tackles, plus the rest of the DLS team. Don’t beleive all these DeLa detractors.
Anderson did look great! Actually the entire team looked great. I know the comp wasn’t anything, but we not only scored at will, but kept them out of the endzone, even on some short-field situations late in the game where they got the ball on turnovers caused by backups.
I’m feeling like the entire team is now locked-down and ready to make a run. O-line, receivers and kicker have always been strong. Against Marin Catholic it became clear that DBs were solid, not great but solid. Then we made some changes to LB corps and now we have the best starting LBs in DFAL. Now with the old MLB moving to D-end and some other changes, our D-line is pretty solid as became evident in the Acalanes game. Running game getting a little better each week. Last night was like the last piece of the puzzle: starting QB back!
Still have to prove it on the field beating Las Lomas and Alhambra. If we can’t do that then none of it matters!
I have mixed feeling on DLS. I have nothing against their program, but sometimes I feel it would breath some new life into NCS D1 if they were to get beat. But hey, not their fault no one can step up and get it done.
I also see Nakita Zamora’s father/guardian around so I certainly wished him the best against DLS.
Was at the Hayward game last night, and you just have to hand it to the Farmers – great grit in hanging around, and just enough defense to get the job done. Odowd dominated the first half, and were inside the 5 yard line 4 times, but could only come away with 7 points (a missed field, goal, a stuffed run, and an interception in the end zone). The backup QB #5 is a great athlete, but not a very strong quarterback. With O’dowd’s first string QB, this game would not have been close.
In the second half, Hayward came out in a double wing formation and just jammed it down BOD’s throat. Strangely, Coach Nickerson never adjusted. Coach Barnes simply outcoached him, as the Farmers broke off 5-10 yards a run in two long scoring drives. BOD was plagued with penalties, missed throws, and dropped passes. Even with all that, they should have won it with a chip shot field goal that was missed. Great win for Hayward on Seniors night, brutal loss for O’Dowd.
I wouldn’t say Mt. Eden has been brought back to life by Perenon. They haven’t beaten a single team of any worth. In fact, their best win is against a 2-6 Alameda team that calpreps gives a -11 rating.
I also don’t think Nickerson is a bad coach. He’s won 2 HAAL championships in 2 years. They’ve played a very hard schedule and are 6-2. And friday night’s loss to Hayward was a freak loss.
SL vs Encinal for the Foothill division cellar. What’s with Encinal’s offense, this game might end in a zero – zero tie. SL’s last chance to avoid an 0-10 season. DV will go 0-10. Albany will finish 0-10. Anyone have the St Liz/Emery score from today? St Liz’s only chance of not going 0-10 is either today’s Emery game or Stellar Prep next week. And last but not least (actually they are least) Elsie Allen will finish as the worst team in NCS having already lost to Emery 22-0 and only scoring 20 points on the season through 8 games.
With all due respect to old dragon fan. BOD is still a true force to be reckoned with. Playing a tough schedule sometimes teams can play well and sneak up on you. Lets not forget Perenons last couple years at BOD, not very impressive, they werent very good. Lost to a not good at all Skyline team that year. Ended up 4-6. still made playoof i think. And COach P is doing well at Mt. Eden, but also with a watered down schedule, loos to a terrible Oakland high team, beat an even more terrible mt Diablo, Alameda team, and a horrible Albany team. Not too impressive with that schedule, but what i impressive is them going to a watered down schedule to help build confidence within the team. thats is smart when ur trying to build and tewam from the bottom up. U try to build the kids confidence up with some wins. But I wouldnt go so far as to compare what he is doing there to Nickerson bringing o dowd down. thats just words of a tru hater, with all due respect.
I will weigh in on the BOD loss, which I saw most of on Friday night. I think WAACed above hit it pretty well. The game really should have been over at halftime. I would also argue that BOD losing their QB is worse for them than Campo losing Stephens because Macy is just a better coach, with a more game-ready backup. This is not to hate on Hardy, who is a very good high school coach, but just doesn’t seem to be a great game manager. QB Miroglio is pretty good. A 3-year starter, league MVP. Pretty hard to replace with a defensive back, no matter how good an athlete. Just tough luck for BOD this year. If they get QB back for the playoffs, they will be a team you don’t want to face.
miraman bod worst lost was when he lost to the great jacob wright from san lorenzo. that loss and nickerson backroom dealings is what lead to his dismisle. bod is underachieving i know the qb went down but please for a catholic school who can recruit there not where they should be. we saw what happen when valley christian came to town. st.i had been beating up bod for yrs. i also remember cardinal newman came to 98th and beat’m good those are all good teams no doubt. they just dont measure up to the top catholic schools in the bay area and i dont see why!
U jackass B.O.D. is in oakland on 98th
dont act like u dont understand that its difficult 2 coach in oakland NO ONE DRIVING 30 MILE 2 DROP THERE KID OFF IN A WAR ZONE oakland is the 3rd worst city in the whole f-ing country Bod has a great staff far more football knowledge than coach P (NOW U CANT COACH INSTINT AND U CAN MAKE A KID HAVE HEART THAT COMES FROM THE INSIDE SO STOP HATE ING)
Yea, its tough for me to see how O’Dowd is without a suitable backup QB. Even if King is a great QB, which it doesn’t sound like he is, it still disrupts your team dynamics to pull one of your top two-way players out of his normal position to put him at QB. Then they have to pull up their JV QB who’s clearly not ready??? By way of comparison, Miramonte usually goes three deep at QB with perhaps one of them being primarily a position player. This year we have four guys on varsity that could QB at a moments notice – though some better than others.
What happened to Channing Nesbitt? I thought he was their backup…and some said as good a Mariglio (sp)?? Did he quit to focus on baseball?
chalk- been getting along with you lately- however the statement on Coach P and O’Dowd needs some clarification. You are right, no one driving 30 mi. to go to O’Dowd unless it’s basketball.
Coach P was an ex- prep QB, has 211 wins, 5th all time in NorCal and some pretty good football insight. Nickerson ex-pro and Cal but a linebacker, he’s a defensive guy. If P came back and took the O and Nick had the D O’Dowd would be a strong contender in NCS.
However, as I said before, the men of O’Dowd were women in the ’70′s to a St. Mary’s man.
MOST OF THESE SO CALLED RECRUITS HAVE THEE MOST IGNORANT PARENT U HAVE EVER SEEN WITH THE KID COMES the parent lack of morals and structure ur asking 4 trouble!!! but i guess thats y its called recruiting
Bod even without starting qb has no business losing to Hayward period they shouldve won that game no excuses.Is there any word on starting qb’s return? is he coming back for playoffs? 2nd round exit without qb
Interesting question C/O98, probably not a popular opinion but I think each coach should evaluate how the QB performs against them. Therefore, When an outstanding QB like BOD’s and Campo’s get hurt half way through their league I don’t see how they could be All League.
One thing to consider is CN has two tough game remaining in Rancho and Casa while MC and EC have softies. If CN loses one, then they drop to #3. If they win out, I think they get #1. Either way I think EC gets #2. Just my opion, but I think the seeding committee will want an undefeated EC #1 or #2, but since both of the northern power teams have much tougher schedules is hard to justify #1 for EC, so I think the net result is:
#1 CN if undefeated or MC if both have one loss
#2 EC as long as they go undefeated
#3 CN if they lose one, MC is CN wins-out
#4 Campo doubtful they’ll lose one to DV or Dublin
#5 Analy soft schedule, should go 10-0
#6 O’Dowd could still drop another game, then what?
#7 Novato? assuming 7-3 w/win over Tam, their win over Justin Siena might get them the nod for this spot, though not sure its deserved!
#8 Tennyson – Yea I said it! Even with their tissue soft schedule a 9-1 finish may get them in the top 8. They will still likely go one-and-done.
#9 & #10 Acalanes and Miramonte assumes both win remaining games and for Miramonte that is less certain
#11 & #12 Tam & Encinal – Encinal could still drop one or both remaining games, so who knows, but they’ll still deserve higher ranking than anyone else
