  1. How is Calvert Hall's JV QB performing so far?
  2. Exactly HoundsDad, I don't understand the conflict. Gilman was ranked in the Top 20 in the final poll of 2015. The process that he started vs Bear Creek at Unitas Stadium had finally started to bear fruit and run itself. He had a great frosh class and incoming class that would have kept the machine rolling at Gilman. But that wasn't enough! He needed MORE, more studs, more recognition, more control over aspects of his alma mater contradicted the schools mission, even after they had given him and his staff more rope than any coach in the program. Like Daywalker said, they would routinely come up small under the bright national lights. I thought they turned the corner in that St. Ed's loss, that was a legit crew that should have gone undefeated that season. He wanted MORE, Gilman denied, and he bounced. He won Gilman the vaunted 100th Game vs McD and moved to the next challenge. Case closed. My major point of contention with the move was the unethical smear campaign that he and his staff launched on his alma mater on the way out. That whole crew should be persona non grata at Gilman for the way they handled the situation. To his credit, Poggi has a clear vision of what he wants, how his program should look, and how to go about making that a reality. Not to mention, the resources to buy players. He has had the IMG type vision and SFA was more than willing to give him the keys to upgrade their program. Poggi got what he wanted and Gilman got what they wanted. It's just not a pretty transition for the Hounds, especially when unfairly compared to the SFA machine now in motion.
  3. What is going on with Gilman Football? I saw them vs Gonzaga and they didn't even perform like a varsity team. They had some players that played well, but as a whole it was very bad. There was a frosh starting QB on the field, but you wouldn't have known it was the Gonzaga QB, Gilman could barely complete a forward pass. The corners were toast and one is a Navy commit. It seems 13 games and running that they still can't seem to get their best player, Booker, the ball on O. Why didn't they follow Biff with a strong coach instead of this 2 year AD run? The program has been set back further with the success of SFA, makes it looks like it was the staff and not the school that was the reason for past success. Gonna be a long year for the Hounds and help doesn't seem to be on the way.
  4. Smothers was put on a pedestal in middle school, similar to Aquille Carr in basketball. The kid was never held accountable for his books, but his team won games with him on the field. True, at 18-20 these guys are definitely making their own decisions, but what about the adults that were supposed to lay the template for his future success, instead of keeping him eligible to win games. He should have sat a season in HS to help him understand the importance of the academic side, instead of talking to his teachers for help changing grades. To play college ball, you have to attend college, do well in school. Hopefully he will make the most of the JUCO route and be back on the big stage in a few years. He is a special talent, always has been.
  5. SFA football could care less about East Baltimore, they're building IMG East You already know how this crew gets down from their time at Gilman, the pockets are deep, but they outwork a lot of staffs and put those kids where they want to be. Can't knock the hustle MacGregor is the High D1 plug
  6. Any word on the Woodlawn job?
  7. Looks good, maybe they donated some product, jerseys or uniforms. Round of applause for the multi million dollar Baltimore based company, maybe they should relocate now since they've done more than enough in this crime ridden city. Oh, he's building his own city with private funds right.
  8. Woodlawn open again? The curse of Mark Agent, they should have never let him go. What was the issue with the former coach at Woodlawn?
  9. Spot on GA, they have 3 basketball players on Gilman team, and one is a frosh JV call up. Them and Loyola will battle for the basement, but GCS has to be the most disappointing team in the area with 1 conference win.
  10. Yes really, they can't help everyone, but he was doing real work in the community and he could have used the assistance. UA also allowed shady dealing in the grassroots bball community by forcing a fake merger of 3 self sustaining programs under one contract, that was a fiasco. Couldn't even build a local sports facility, choosing instead to rehab the Melo Center. C'mon now...
  11. We lost a truly great man, unique spirit, he was just getting started UA building little cities, but couldn't find time to get behind this man and support his movement? I know for a fact he asked them for help.
  12. Must really be hurt to miss a game vs #1 team, but he'll have plenty of opportunities to play MSJ when he gets to the MIAA next season. No way he stays at Dulaney.
  13. Belicheck knows what he has in Cyrus. He struggled early at Bama and we saw how he perservered under Saban. They should take him off returns and let him settle in at corner. I'll go with the positive comments of his teammates after the game, McCourty and Edelman, he's in good hands around those pros.
  14. RM7, all that talk was ridiculous, he's a humble and talented 6'9" junior with a 7'2" wingspan in high school. I saw him this summer with Takeover playing with energy and passion, I knew the developing big man had turned the corner. Looking for big things from him the next 2 seasons.
  15. City league can't play until Dec, but it should be a good race. Poly is the defending champ and favorite but they will be challenged by Lake, Patterson, and possibly Dunbar and Edmondson. Losing 6'7 frosh Dorsey to Hill School really hurt, along with the 6'8 frosh transfer having to sit out the season, really limits this group. Help is on the way for them. They really gutted out a tough road win last night. I still have no idea how St. Paul's lost this game after being up 13 late in 2nd half with that size advantage. McD is also small this year after losing their 6'8 to transfer, but they went to Hoco and knocked off favored GCS last night. Guard play wins games in HS.
