  2. I will demonstrate the proper use of the ignore button. Congrats on making the list. Nothing you post rarely has any interest to me, and is regressing to the dumber each day. Hawg - for being on over officious jerk, and also for letting Block stick around after Block impersonated me and wrote inflamatory posts. Old Terrapin - for obscenity laced content and being an overall @sshole. DBP66 - For being irrelevant Reggid - for obsessive compulsive posting and not contributing anything of value about the teams in his area Hoover Outlaw - for general bozo posts and not contributing anything to enhance my experience on this forum. Ga96 - for being a detriment to his state Dustin Stratham - prolly an second or third generation alt. You can tell by the degradation of the content BufordGAWolves* * Probation I may let you back in November. *Tryouts are still open for anyone else who wants to make the list

  4. We've seen GSB threaten to cut him out of being the southern section handler for his business when he actually manned up and spouted some truth about how sorry a team was or something one time. Since then, he's walked the straight and narrow for him, all the way to the point of licking his own tears off the guys knob.

  5. He simply won't stop pressing his businesses on here. Numerous warnings. He was banned for 2 days and 14 hours last week and told why. He then came back and thought he could slide his business's spam in other ways. I removed some and publicly warned him. Today I logged on and had to hide a few more of the same type posts, then he shows up talking about new clients and all again. We'll see him again in November.

  7. We aim to please. Ahahahaha. I'll give you a little backstory. Most of the guys have been moving from site to site as the old ones failed since forever I guess. I didn't come along until 2014 when I felt like Dallas Jackson was snubbing Colquitt in his NHSF100 ranking. His site worked better than most because he had a poll that he was pushing out and it was being fairly widely accepted as a better one of the national polls. He also released little stories at times that he wrote. This gave everyone fat to chew instead of constantly chewing one another. Of course we still did all that, but, the main arguments were usually born from his ranking vs. other rankings or just his. He was man enough to enter the convo and somewhat debate his decisions for ranking positions and of course nobody with a team below the one in question openly accepted his decisions. Lol Turned out for him, it was about the dollar bills pretty solely. He felt like he should be getting famous and making a living off the poll and his reporting. He tried to find ways to make money including joining/merging with VYPE at one point in what seemed to be a final attempt at making money as a respected hsfb journalist and pollster. Needless to say, it all didn't work out for him as he and some of us all had hoped. He moved on to the funny papers, almost literally and left the site to never return. We all continued at the site for as long as it was still open at any rate because there was no other. I tried to no avail to buy the keys to the site but Dallas really wouldn't even talk about it and let it fail from nonpayment. One of the members was Prepgridiron that owns this site and apparently behind the scenes had bought the address you see here today and when the other site crashed due to non-payment, we all migrated here from a weird Texas site that we had a brief amassing at. Somewhere along the way in there at DJ's site, early 2015 I think, I logged on one day and the site looked a little different to me because I had moderator tools. I never asked for them or even really volunteered to do it. There was no conversation about it between DJ and myself. Just a DM from him saying I hope you do the site proud as I know you will. Another DM from the other site mod saying welcome to the club. Nobody ever got banned back then. Not until DJ was gone and the site was destined to close. A couple of members got into an argument and the Nbomb was dropped and the first ban was born there from Glory Days the other and better mod. This was a life ban because neither of us had the tool to lift a ban. DJ reserved that right as Admin. I think he felt if we decided to ban, likely there wouldn't be much reason for the mod that did ban to lift it. Idk. There was little behind the scenes back and forth between he and the mods. We were just mostly all buds that enjoyed talking football and the only person trying to make any money off of it was the site owner. The only companies being talked about were his outside of everyone agreeing or arguing which poll was better this week. We shared some streams and links to local news stories about the site and that was about it on the links. The political type discussions also got started as that site was starting to fail. For a while we tried to delete them or whatever but Rab would fuck up any thread at any time with garbage like he did at the vent. After a while us mods with no DJ to make a decision kind of gave up on battling that and let it roll. One a California guy and the other me, a Georgia guy. When we hit this site, Prep saw fit to give me tools straight away, again without me asking or volunteering exactly. I just kind of always accepted it and it did seem good that someone would trust you enough to just give the site tools over. When we got this one off the ground it was good, but political discussion still polluted the football stuff. Thus the OT was created as basically a trash can for the mods to move the stuff we didn't think belonged or was affecting football discussion. Turned out a good many previously great football posters took up home back there and rarely talk football at all. Strange but, it has been that way for most of the life of this site. Idk. I've always been loyal to the overall goup of guys here even though we don't always agree on a lot of stuff. In spite of what some try to say, I've almost never let my emotions control my use of the site toolkit. I rarely even go to my moderator tools at all actually. I prefer to talk and argue with everyone else because thats why I joined the group to begin with. I've not made money here. One time I got an Amazon egift card from Prep which was appreciated but not asked for. I think it was 150. Been so long now I don't remember hahaha. Probably the second or third year this site ran. I have an "it is what it is" attitude about things I can't control or change. As for all this bullshit... it is what it is. Loyalty apparently has an expiration date and isn't reciprocated. Occasionally, my morals and rearing won't let me allow some shit to stand. I'll stand by my decision to pop GSB forever. If anyone on here was ever involved or up to some conartistry and shady business dealings it was him. I want no part in it and have enough respect for my reputation that I've built during this lifetime that allowing the type stuff he had rolling to operate on "my watch" was and will always be a non starter. Local people know who I am on here. I have to do business with these people as my livelihood depends on their trust in me for them to do business with me. Unfortunately, allowing GSB to push scam school after scam school on here I felt becomes a direct reflection on me and how scrupulous I may be in my personal business dealings. Turns out I have to sell real products and stand behind them in my real life and selling the sizzle will sell your ass right out of a job down here in Motown. So, no matter where you're at, there you are. If anyone chose to read all of this... It is what it is. 👍 I'm here, honest and loyal til the doors shut, and that's where my trip will end. For the love of the game.

  8. None of us had ever heard of them, and they had beaten nobody with any sort of ranking. But, they destroyed everyone they played. Turns out, being an undefeated, unchallenged state champion can mean you're pretty damn good, whether anyone else realizes it or not. I think there are a few Graham-Kapowsins throughout the country most years. And that is the correct way to interpret their win, not just to laugh at Collins Hill. We can't possibly know all there is to know about all of the teams throughout the country. And, contrary to common belief, a team doesn't have to schedule Mater Dei or St. John Bosco to be really good. GK should be top 15 in the country at worst.

  11. Sorry for this being a late post after the game but after all of the Bish/Syc stuff on here I figured it would be a an alternatively pleasant read. I've Been to a lot of very interesting games over the years but every once in a while there is one that stands out ( MD vs IMG for example ) and really sucks you in. SJB ESL, while not starting out that way... ultimately became on of those. I connected with Cal 14 an hour before the game allowing us to watch the warmups close up and get a gauge on each team before kickoff. Panish Stadium allows the fans to get within a few feet of each team. We checked out ESL first and what struck us the most ( outside of their really cool looking uniforms ) was how seemingly small they looked relative to SJB even though they had several 300lb plus linemen. The other thing was their lack of depth, maybe 50 or fewer players. What also got my attention was how well their big guys executed their maneuvers and quickly shifted their footwork. On the way over to the SJB end of the field one of the security guys came over and talked football with us for about 5 minutes and was kind enough to advise how we could secure decent seats for the game with MD. Once we got over to the SJB end, there did not seem to be much difference in size and speed of the skill guys but the SJB line seemed much bigger, especially the OL. If ESL was going to have any success, their line would have to out quick Bosco which is how it went when ESL had productive plays. Relative to the game... IMO there were two things that influenced how it played out: A blown "non call" where there was blatant pass interference negating a potential ESL TD giving them the lead and an ESL penalty ( the correct call ) changing a 4th and 7 with a sure punt, to a 4th and 2 allowing SJB to convert... after which Clarkson's run followed... a 12 to 14 point swing. Those along with ESL's lack of discipline creating penalties that killed some really positive plays set the tone for the rest of the first half. What kept us from leaving once it became 35 zip was the fact that ESL, despite having no points, showed they had the same explosiveness SJB. They were entertaining to watch of which we commented upon several times in the game and when they finally got it going they did not disappoint. Cal 14 correctly pointed out that if ESL had any type of a kicking game, it would have been a "one possession" affair with plenty of time on the clock. A quick evaluation of both teams: After the MC game, I think SJB has improved a lot. Seeing them in person against both MC and ESL to me confirms that, as I think if ESL were to play MC, they would win. If Bosco has any potential weaknesses, ESL may have exposed some in the secondary. One thing we also kept commenting on was that if ESL had a really bruising short yardage RB, they may well have won despite all the penalties. Something Cal 14 pointed out is that Servite has that type of RB and it will be a factor when the SJB and Sevite hook up. Beyond that there is not much more to say about SJB as ESL is a very very good team and SJB handled them. As far as ESL goes: If they didn't have such a miserable kicking game... had a small yardage bruiser RB along with more discipline, they may well be a top 10 or 20 squad. However, without those elements, cracking the top 40 may be a stretch. They are good enough on any given day to beat anybody... as of now... not named MD or IMG but until they solve those weaknesses they cannot do it consistently. One last note before wrapping up. The ESL fans were great to hang with... very cool... more than receptive to fraternizing with "the enemy" so to speak. There were lots of them and even behind by 35 points, kept hanging in there. One couple flew in the night before and were flying back right after the game ended. Who does that for a HS game??? ( OK... Maybe if your from Texas ) The couple behind gave us some background on the Flyers at which time we learned they were underclass dominated. They were disappointed that this game was cancelled last year as they informed us that it was a much better squad with quite a few D1's some of whom are now doing well in the SEC. IMO, if they get their s##t together they should start next season very high in the rankings. Cal 14 and I met another potential Prep Gridiron member sitting just to the left of us who's a local guy and follows HS football to a pretty high level. ( It was like talking with Steeler No 2 ). We kept talking after the stadium emptied for another 20 minutes or so... continuing our discussion through the parking lot where the tailgate parties and grilling was still in full swing. Everyone was in party mode and the barbecue smell added a lot to the experience. Overall this was one of those games that crossed over to "an evening event"... and just like the IMG MD game, no one left the house unsatisfied.

  14. The 5-second version: They were formed as COF a few years back, but that program collapsed under fraud and misuse of funds, including fraudulently obtaining loans and failing to pay numerous vendors and landlords. so they folded that name and called themselves Bishop Sycamore. In the 2-3 years they’ve been BS, they’ve used multiple fake addresses, multiple fake names, fraudulently attached themselves to actual charitable entities without those entities’ knowledge or permission, and then created a fake school name to attach themselves to, before giving that up and going back to just calling themselves BS and using a fake address. There is not and never has been an actual school. And there is not and never has been a person named Bishop Sycamore. They use post-grad players, which is one of the many reasons they are not certified by OHSAA or any other certifying body for high school sports. They and their pimp, GSB, lie online about their players, their facilities, and their fake D-1 offers. Meanwhile, they barely have enough players to cover offense and defense, and they don’t have enough uniforms, equipment, and helmets for all the players. it’s a scam from top to bottom, pimped, pushed, and promoted by GSB.

  19. This is pretty much my take. I figure the guy brought it all on himself. Hell, while I agree Canes can be an asshole and prick, so can't we all at times. It's the type thing like USAA where it was so easy to uncover that the stuff was all bullshit yet it got pumped and carried on until it seems like people got literally fucked out of money and what not. Suddenly all of it got hidden from public view, and I won't lie, I was upset about that. Now we have seen almost a repeat of the same garbage, except there actually is men playing the game we discuss on here in this thing. It's all been a huge lie though. No D1 players. No Varsity and National team. They never had classrooms at that indoor facility. They never had camp there. They've been super secretive with their roster to try protecting the D1 lie until they actually got a couple of games in. Etc. I think the ol boy deserves the lashing. In spite of all his doubling down and continuation of the crud, he knows this thing was some bullshit. Deep down in there he knows it. He'll never admit it though. Same goes for Paragon, ESPN and Max Preps. Those folks browse these boards and have seen this ongoing saga. Rashid has multiple profiles here. I feel pretty sure pundits from the other places do as well, or, at the minimum they are readers. Most news stories get broken on these types of boards first, and they pick up on the stories from them. Even the little local sportswriters peruse these boards and break stories after picking up leads from posters like us. They're all playing dumb and pretending to be appalled now, and, they have plausible deniability so, there's no hard proof they knew anything, but, we know they did. Shame on them. They all helped perpetrate this fraud imo. I definitely feel bad for the men that are playing for Bishop Sycamore. I feel like they're trying to chase a dream, but, quite frankly, they've been dishonest too, with their Twitter stuff showing offers that can't be verified or backed up.

  20. I attended the Carmel (IN) - Detroit ML King game last night in what was one of the greatest games I have ever seen. To set it up, ML King is up 33-29 with a little over a minute to go but Carmel has a first and goal at the ML King two yard line. King's defense tightens up and forces a fourth down play which is unsuccessful (an incomplete pass into the end zone). King fans celebrate an apparent win. However, on the first offensive play after the goal line stand, King fumbles and Carmel recovers the ball and runs it in for a touchdown. Carmel fans are elated. King receives the ball with exactly a minute to go in the game and drives the ball down the field scoring with 8.8 seconds to go to take a 40-36 lead. King fans are again elated and think the game is over. For some reason, King pooch kicks the kickoff and Carmel returns it to the King 35 yard line with 3.8 seconds to go. The Carmel quarterback launces a pass into the end zone on the final play and a kid from Carmel blocks the ML King defenders off to make an amazing catch in the end zone. Final score: Carmel 42 Detroit ML King 40. On top of all that, we stumbled into a fantastic place to eat prior to the game. Folks, this in what it is all about.

  23. Mentioned it once earlier this year but man it’s crazy to think my first few days on DJ’s board my guy @Sammyswordsmanand I went back and forth about who sucked less at the time Collins Hill or Servite. Collins Hill lost 6 games that year, Servite lost 7. Arguing semantics really. (Servite was probably better, I’ll let em have it) We bickered over Maxpreps rankings and tiers before his tiers were even a thing! Alas a friendship was made! (albeit after I quit being so persnickety @zulu1128) yeah yeah It took some time, but LOOK AT US! Huge win for the Friars tonight!!! Eagles are rolling and our savior Travis Hunter has returned!! Both of our teams will be playing for a championship this season (oh it’s happening, Georgia lurkers) Absolutely big time

  24. Longtime district rivals Chandler and Hamilton meet tonight in a rematch of last season's Open state championship, with the winner securing the 6A Premier Region championship and the #1 seed in the Open bracket. Chandler currently holds a 47-game win streak and hasn't lost to an Arizona opponent since 2017 but is coming off a pair of very close calls the past two weeks. Bishop Gorman and 2020 6A division champ Chaparral have been the only close calls on Hamilton's slate and are my grudging favorite for this game and the Open state championship. I believe YurView will have the game available for streaming purchase.

  28. NorCal top game: De La Salle vs Cathedral Catholic (listing this here because it will be played in NorCal) The Spartans are coming off of an historic defeat to the St. Francis Lancers. How will they bounce back? While St. Francis was NorCal-ranked, they were not state-ranked by CalHiSports.com. The next opponent is ranked in the state top 10, however. The Lancers used a punishing ground game and opportunistic passing attack to garner the win. Another potentially physical ground game awaits against Cathedral Catholic. DLS is in the middle of a string of high-level contests, which will continue for the next couple of weeks against St. Frances (MD) and Folsom. The Dons of Cathedral Catholic know a bit about bouncing back from a defeat as they were soundly beaten by Corona Centennial a few weeks ago. They responded with blowout wins over a state-ranked Chaminade and Helix. Hoping that lightning with strike twice, Cathedral Catholic will use a triple-option offense to try to control the ball and the line of scrimmage much like how St. Francis did. For the first time in ages, the Dons will come in as a higher-ranked California DLS opponent not named Mater Dei or St. John Bosco. A win here and they are in the driver's seat for a CIF D-IAA regional bowl berth. Other interesting games: Bellarmine vs Central Catholic... With St. Francis' win over DLS, Bellarmine is now in the conversation for a potential CIF Open Division bid if they were to win out as they get their shot at the Lancers on 10/22. Central Catholic is 3-0, having defeated three capable opponents. Teams played in the Spring where the Raiders overcame a 21-point deficit to win 28-21. McClymonds vs Marin Catholic... McClymonds will demonstrate over the next three weeks whether they are a mere curiosity or if their CalHiSports and NorCalPreps rankings (40 and 10, respectively) are justified. Marin Catholic is undefeated so far (just like the Warriors), but has lost the last two meetings with McClymonds (2019 & 2018). Del Oro vs Granite Bay... Always tough Golden Eagles of Del Oro have started 4-0 start, having picked up a nice win over Concord Clayton Valley a couple weeks ago. 3-1 Granite Bay looks to spoil Del Oro's bid to be a main contender to Folsom in the Sierra Foothill League SoCal top game: Servite vs Sierra Canyon The Friars have looked explosive in three impressive wins so far and look to add another state-ranked opponent to that list. They have thus far yielded only 28 points in 3 games, including only 7 against powerful Mission Viejo. Servite was very opportunistic last week, taking advantage of several Bishop Amat gaffes on special teams. The Friars have a balanced offensive attack out of their spread formation to go along with their stingy defense. We're going to have to wait for the much-anticipated games against Mater Dei and St. John Bosco as they aren't until weeks 9 and 10 of the regular season, respectively. Sierra Canyon sits at 2-1, having had two weeks to get over their 19-point loss to Corona Centennial. Although the two teams they've defeated are not chopped liver, JSerra and Oaks Christian do sit at a combined 1-6, having taken on tough competition themselves. While the Trailblazer's efforts to schedule great competition has been rewarded with a top 10 state ranking by CalHiSports, it may be time to demonstrate whether or not they actually belong in that placement. Their tough schedule continues after this week with games against Mission Viejo and Saguaro out of Arizona later in the year. Other interesting games: St. John Bosco vs Smith (VA)... The Braves continue their tour of state #1 teams (according to calpreps.com) by traveling across the country to take on the Tigers in Chesapeake. Smith has only allowed 3 points in their 2-0 start, but their competition so far has been... ordinary, with neither team rated in the top 2500 according to calpreps.com. Los Alamitos vs Santa Margarita... The 4-0 Griffins survived a close battle with Clovis Buchanan last week, 34-31. The 3-1 Eagles are coming off of a win against Nolan Catholic out of Texas, 31-13, with their only loss coming to state top 10 Norco. Carlsbad vs Mission Hills... Carlsbad is ranked #2 in the SDS by CalHiSports and will have to beat #4 Mission Hills in order to stay there, since #3 Lincoln already has a win over them. Mission Hills fights to remain in CalHiSports' state top 25 this week in a game that may decide the Avocado League title.
