    If CIF will get it together and hound the major media outlets in this state to heavily promote this game, this CIF State Open Championship between DLS and Bosco will go in as the game of the centuries and hopefully a lot of people will show up at 8pm next Saturday at the StubHub Center in Carson.
    Both the Spartans and the Braves are undefeated and both teams pretty much cruised through their playoffs. De La Salle is “De La Salle” and St. John Bosco is argueably the best team to come out of the Southland in years. The Braves have at least 8 D1 prospect seniors and 8 or 9 underclassmen getting lots of D1 letters. (Yeah, both Poly and Grant were both undefeated when the Pacers hugely upset the Jack Rabbits 25-20 in the 2008 Cal Bowl. However, even though LB Poly was a very storied program, Grant Union, outside of Sacramento, was mostly an unknown, especially south of the Tehachapis.)
    Some think this game doesn’t compare with the DLS-Poly and DLS – Mater Dei games of the late 90s and early turn of the century. I’m afraid I beg to differ. Those games were early in the season and only counted for bragging rights. This one is for the championship of the biggest state west of the Atlantic.

    From the SacBee:
    Co-coach Kris Richardson led Folsom to the 2010 CIF State D-II title, but he wonders if the Bulldogs can return to Carson if De La Salle continues to tower above the competition. He has suggested a format in which the NorCal and SocCal Open losers face off in a game, or something to allow the second-best NorCal team to advance.

    I thought that’s what playoffs are for. Winners advance and losers go home. What about all the teams that Folsom beat. Could they use the same argument? How about some cheese with that whine, coach?

    TinTim Says:
    Sacred Heart Cathedral’s 42-7 upset rout of El Cerrito in the NorCal D3 last Saturday really shakes up the Rankings not only for the Greater Bay Area, but NorCal and CIF D3&4 as well. Since EC was the NCS D3 Champ and both Campolindo and Marin Catholic had beaten Miramonte, the NCS D2 Champ, in regular season, the better NCS D3 abd D2 teams will need to be ranked considerably lower this week. One team that benefitted from SHP’s easy win was Terra Nova who beat the Gators 29-15 at SHP in Bay League play Nov. 6.
    Also, McClymonds 14-17 very close loss to Central Catholic in the NorCal D4 not only puts the Warriors in the CIF D3&4 Rankings, but noticeably brings down the better SJS D4 teams too.

    EC loss to SHCP with SHCP’s athletes is the biggest upset since DLS lost to Canyon Country. Shocking. I see SHCP getting blown out by 30 points in state.

  • Oh Boy

    Absolutely.

    TinyTim says:
    De La Salle’s easy (game went to a running clock for the 4th qtr) 45-17 win over Folsom has to drop the Bulldogs in the state rankings and also affects the rankings of the other better SJS D1 teams negatively. However, the strength (especially the total LOS domination on both offense and defense) that DLS showed brings the Spartans back to #1.
