  1. Stupid decision if true. Don’t really worry about reclassing. Calvert Hall kids have to do it before HS. Kids were held back by parents for solely academic reasons back in my day. I make a motion that kids not be allowed to do this BS in Maryland. Can’t stand this crap!
  2. So Gilman’s new coach is the next coming of John Wooden? You been pumping up Gilman for years and they never meet your expectations. What makes this year so different?
  3. If Montez McNeil is still at CHC, the sophomore will provide rebounding and interior defense to complement Brendan Adams’ scoring and slashing and Logan Curtis’ all-around flloor game. In the summer, I heard that 6’5” freshman phenom Darrius Tilghman decided to attend the Hall. If this is true and Bauersfeld plays this kid he will provide a boost to the lineup and make up for the loss of Briggs and Illardo. Cornish and Lewis are the significant losses for the program.
  4. I don’t know if McDonogh will be highly ranked even with with Noah Locke. However, I believe John Carroll’s 9-Star backcourt will cement them as a major contender in the BCL/MIAA and challenge MSJ. SFA reportedly lost Jordan Goodwin and Eric Turner to Milford Mill but gained 6’7” forward Bassirou Diop out of Virginia Beach and 6’9” forward Jason Murphy from Chapelgate Christian making the Panthers a definite factor in the Catholic League & the MIAA. Che Evans and the Cornish Brothers will be in the mix in Baltimore County with the current 4A champion, Perry Hall Gators. With two transfers from SFA, Milford Mill may be eying a return to the upper echelon of Baltimore County basketball. Baltimore City’s is a lot murkier when it comes to standout teams ready to challenge Poly. Patterson lost Marvin Price and Lake Clifton lost two key players to McDonogh and Mount Carmel, respectively. I have a suspicion that the Dunbar Poets might return to glory and challenge Poly in the city. I’m clueless about Anne Arundel, Harford and Howard Counties but they always have good teams in the Baltimore Sun and Washington Post’s Top 15-20 rankings.
  5. Got word from an insider that Saturday’s “game” against St. John’s was really a scrimmage. The Cardinals got manhandled by the following score: Q1) SJC 19 CH 14 Q2) SJC 18 CH 10 Q3) SJC 15 CH 9 Q4) SJC 18 CH 11 Q5) SJC 11 CH 2 I hope they do much better in their first game against Goretti on the 27th.
  6. I don’t think so. I definitely hope not. CHC isn’t a coaching staff with suspect X’s and O’s and outrageous personnel decisions. Bauersfeld has coaches Nashid Coleman and David Gately on the bench with him. What happened to Drew?
  7. Please, NO! Not the refs! Sorry about the Wisconsin/Minnesota mixup. Go Golden Gophers! Both are midwestern states with similar demographics. I may stop by the Charles Village Pub or Green Turtle.
  8. State Semifinals Predictions: 4A Wise over Howard N. Point over Quince Orchard 3A Milford Mill over Long Reach Oxon Hill over Linganore 2A Damascus over Glenelg Gwynn Park over Harford Tech 1A Dunbar over Havre de Grace Lackey over Fort Hill
  9. Naw, heading to a friend’s house to grill out and watch the Ravens game. Not really interested.
  10. CHC played St. John’s (DC) yesterday at 10:30AM in an early, early season contest. Anybody know the score? Had to drive to Morgantown to pick up my son from WVU for the holiday break. CHC lost two good players during the summer in Josh Cornish (Dulaney) and Justin Lewis (Poly) but returns Brendan Adams, Logan Curtis & Montez McNeil. St. John’s returns guards Tre Wood (UMass recruit) and Casey Morsell along with forward, David Njoku (Navy recruit).
  11. Good morning to the many Gilman enthusiasts on the board today! Good luck against the SFA Panthers this afternoon. (Insert sarcasm emoji) No predictions on my part. Hopefully the refs call a fair game both ways.
  12. JBMad, you’ve posted several times since your son graduated that you don’t have a dog in the fight at Loyola anymore. So, why bring up the CHC/Gilman Part II debacle. Lol! Your son is at Wisconsin, right? Shouldn’t you be talking BIG10 championship on the college sports board? Btw, Happy Thanksgiving and FTD!
  13. Looking forward to the scores. Game time is almost here.
  14. Ok. Corrected my post. The article said they were on the same team in ‘08 only. I defer to your HOCO knowledge.
  15. Good article showing the talent dispersed around the Baltimore & D.C. metropolitan areas in both the public and private ranks. One addition to the list for the AFC West in 2017 is CB Trevor Williams of CHC/Penn State/Los Angeles Chargers. Besides Good Counsel & River Hill, CHC seems to be the only other school with future NFL players on the same team for two years with Amos & Williams at CHC in ‘09 and ‘10.
