  1. Calvert Hall’s season started badly last summer when they lost SR G Josh Cornish to Dulaney and SO F Justin Lewis to Poly through transfers. The Cardinals lost 7 straight games to open the season including a one point loss to the Dunbar Poets. CHC’s first two wins came at the expense of Loyola and Gilman and the Cardinals ended the regular season by beating the somewhat surprising Dons and woeful Greyhounds to sweep the season series. By beating Loyola, Calvert Hall knocked the Dons out of the MIAA playoffs. Gilman never had a chance finishing at or near the bottom of the league. As a result, the Cardinals take on the John Carroll Patriots on Tuesday in Harford County. The Cardinals lost to JC by 18 points and 15 points In both games this season. It would be a minor miracle if the Cardinals win their opening round playoff game but if not, they’ll play at least one more game in the upcoming BCL playoffs. Loyola also has at least one more game remaining, too. Unfortunately, Gilman can’t say the same. Their season was over before it began.
  2. Dunbar? Add in Calvert Hall, Lake Clifton, Cardinal Gibbons, Towson Catholic, Spalding, Southern, Southwestern, Douglass-Baltimore, City College & SFA
  3. Three of those plays were against #71 George Minas. The film doesn’t lie. GA hates anyone from CHC that gets any pub. All 4 of CHC’s FBS signees don’t deserve any accolades as far as he is concerned.
  4. Why do you make up s**t GA? We were at that game and that kid didn’t stand out against Sutton. The CHC QB was leadfooted and I don’t remember him getting beat up that game. I was more impressed with SFA’s LBs and DBs in pass pro and the entire defense against the rush. You didn’t make one comment the entire game about Enoma dominating anyone. Am I wrong JBMad?
  5. I thought I originally saw a commitment to Howard U on the Calvert Hall Football Twitter page and was surprised when I saw the Morgan news. I can’t comment on Gravette. He transferred to Perry Hall at the end of the first semester and now suits up for the Perry Hall basketball team. Lol!
  6. What about kids that live in Southern PA, the Eastern Shore, Carroll, Frederick and Montgomery counties? Calvert Hall has had young men who resided in these areas or attended HS there at one time participate in athletics at the Baltimore County school. Would you consider them mercenaries, too? If so, the MIAA & WCAC sports teams’ rosters are full of mercenaries. Why should St. Frances be vilified for doing what the other private schools have done for decades?
  7. With the Senior Bowl now in the rear view mirror, the 2018 NFL Draft season is officially underway. The Ravens have $10.9M in salary cap space and have to do some work to the roster to get ready for free agency. This will Be Ozzie Newsome’s last free agency period and draft as the head guy and he and Eric DeCosta should start with trimming the roster of bad contracts. First, they can start by cutting Jeremy Maclin, Brandon Carr, Danny Woodhead, Lardarius Webb, Albert McClellan & Darren Waller. According to Over The Cap (OTC), these cuts would save $14.5 million on the cap raising the Ravens available cap space to $25.4M. As for free agents, I think the Ravens should retain Mike Wallace, Ben Watson, Brent Urban, Alex Collins, Patrick Onwuasor and Matt Skura. On the other hand, I hope they let go of Ryan Mallett, Ryan Jensen, Terrence West, James Hurst, Mike Campanaro and Crockett Gilmore. My most recent Fanspeak’s On The Clock Mock Draft Simulator resulted in the following: R1P16 WR CALVIN RIDLEY ALABAMA R2P20 OT ORLANDO BROWN OKLAHOMA R3P19 QB LAMAR JACKSON LOUISVILLE R3P38 S TERRELL EDMUNDS VIRGINIA TECH R4P18 TE TROY FUMAGALLI WISCONSIN R5P17 WR EQUANIMEOUS ST. BROWN NOTRE DAME R6P16 EDGE ANDREW BROWN VIRGINIA RIdley and St. Brown would finally give Joe Flacco talented homegrown wideouts to work with during his last two seasons in Baltimore. Orlando Brown takes over at RT leaving Alex Lewis to return to LG coming off his injury. Lamar Jackson gets to sit and learn under Joe Flacco for two seasons before taking over the reins to an explosive Ravens offense in 2020. Fumagalli will learn from Ben Watson and help out as a another playmaker at the TE position. Finally, Edmunds adds youth and speed at the FS position and Brown potentially gets to play DE with Urban, Chris Wormley and disappointment, Bronson Kaufusi.
  8. Good for the Madison family. He and his Dad were pretty cool at the City/Poly game a couple of years ago. Good people.
  9. Just to chime in, Friday night lights would be over in a MIAA/WCAC merger. Getting to Olney or Leonardtown on a Friday night game or vice versa would be a nightmare. The only thing I’d like would be Saturday afternoon games, home and away.
  10. Yeah, if it’s Roquan Smith or Minkah Fitzpatrick.
  11. GA, any word on your new coach, yet? I’m ready for the search to be over and the hearts over on Frederick Avenue to be broken, if it happens to go that way.
  12. My bet is Cardinal Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson of Ghana. The Roman Catholic Church hasn’t had an African pope since the early days of the Papacy. I don’t know if the Catholic Church, especially in the USA, Is ready for that, though. We see the backlash of @POTUS44’s presidency with the rise of the Tea Party during and the resurgence of white supremacists during and after Mr. Obama’s two terms.
  13. At the Vatican, they let out black smoke to let people know a new Pope still hasn’t been chosen yet. White smoke signifies a new Pope has been chosen.
  14. It’s a draft simulator.
  15. Ridley was hampered by having a RB throw him the ball the last two seasons. He could be the second coming of Julio Jones! If the Ravens have a chance to draft Ridley and pick an offensive lineman, I might sell my PSLs in Section 545.
