The location mix ups (McDonogh/McDonogh 35, CHC/Towson HS) are definitely MaxPreps data entry problems just based on the amount of times that they happen.
That being said, MaxPreps is stillthe best quick reference for HS schedules anywhere.
Today is July 1, or the 1st day of the 2012-2013 academic year. Which means that most school websites will roll over from 2011-2012 to 2012-2013 within the next few days.
McDonogh has officially updated their website with the fall schedules for all sports. 4 interesting things I noticed:
1) The McD-Gonzaga game will be played at McD on Friday, 8/31 at 4pm and will not be part of the I-95 Kickoff Classic this year.
2) McD is hosting a public school football team on campus for the first time in a decade or more when South River comes for a scrimmage on 8/18. South River is coached by McD alum Lane Clelland.
3) McD is only playing 7 JV games, they scrimmage St. Paul's on 8/24, then don't open the regular season until they play Curley on 9/13. I wonder if they are worried about JV numbers, especially with more freshmen/sophomores expected to make varsity than usual. A typical McD JV team has 25-30 players, so even having a few more making varsity than normal could jeopardize the JV season. Once you start getting around 22 players, you really have to worry about continuing to field a team.
4) Loyola is fielding a middle school team this year. They are playing in the middle school A league with McD, Gilman, BL, and St. Paul's.

2.)I believe McDonogh scrimmaged South River last year, but it was at South River. I assume they set up a home & home last year. Lance is a good guy.
3.) Since breaking their 5 year losing streak, McDonogh's JV program has been competitive & well coached the past two seasons. I do not think a 7 game schedule will necessarily hurt them too much. CHC's JV is playing a 10 game schedule. Their non-conference opponents are Bowie, DeMatha, St. John's, Friendship & Red Lion's varsity ( I think).
4.)Loyola has fielded a middle school team for the past few years. I went to the Loyola/BL game three years ago. A young man who played for BL at the time who is now at CHC. I think McDonogh's Middle School team beat Gilman two years ago as well.
It looks like all the good games are played at Friday night
I guess I missed the fact that Loyola had a middle school team because they haven't played McD recently. The middle school teams usually play only 4-5 games just because there are so few actual school teams at the MS level in MD. McD (A/B teams), Gilman, BL, St. Paul's (A/B teams), Loyola, Friends (B only), Calvert School (K-8 school that sends lots of kids to McD and Gilman), and Bluford Drew Jemison (MPSSAA Charter School) are the only schools with middle school teams that I know of. McD did beat Gilman at the MS level 2 years ago probably the best sub-varsity game I have ever see. McD by something like 36-30 in 3 OT.
Here's an interesting development in the McD-Gonzaga game. Gonzaga released their schedule yesterday and has the game being played Thurs 8/30 at 7:30 at UMD. Conflicting official schedules from McD and Gonzaga

Calvert Hall just started getting people to come to games the last two years. I was at the Gilman-Calvert Hall games 3 years ago when they stunned Gilman, there were like 20 people on the CHC sideline!
Correct...I remember GA posting about the CHC students dancing on the "G" at mid-field and how the Gilman football team was going to avenge that atrosity, only to be shocked again at Calvert Hall in the first Friday Night game.
To get my day started right, I'm going to pull the You Tube clip of the botched punt and listen to, I believe it's coach Poggi, screaming "Fall on it, Fall on it" ... Classic!
