Yes, why would any kid care to go to another school with Dunbar having such nice uniforms and new playing feel. Well, I'd imagine many kids simpy because Dunbar , like you, is just not for everybody.
Looking at Dunbar's schedules from the last 9 years, the Calvert Hall game doesn't seem as much of a 1-game thing as the Dunbar fans will try to make out.
Dunbar fans always seem to have excuses for why they always lose Game 1 whenever they play any decent teams:
2004- Gilman (9-1)- L
2005- Loyola (8-3)-L
2006- Loyola (10-1)-L
2007- Gwynn Park (2-7)- W
2008- Gwynn Park (8-3)- L
2009- Randallstown (1-8)-W
2010- Randallstown (3-6)- W
2011- Dunbar (DC) (9-3)- W
2012- Calvert Hall (10-3)- L
You can point to the Calvert Hall game as 1 game, but I see a trend here, 1-5 in Game 1s against teams that finished the season with a winning record. It seems that when Dunbar plays good out of city teams, they usually lose, with Dunbar (DC) being the lone exception, a game which I believe was called early due to a fight.
Game 1 is usually a rare time Dunbar plays any decent non-city, non-1A competition, and every time they've taken on an even pretty good Maryland team resulted in a loss.

And these are only loses to local teams. Good teams do lose. But hell, I see that Gilman lost to MSJ in 2008 who was beaten by inferior 1A Alleghany who was beaten by Fort Hill twice who was beaten by Dunbar. Care to guess the setting Dunbar beat Fort Hill in 2008.
Yes, Dunbar has lost games but I stand that they were but one game - one lose in the count. In the end, Dunbar landed on its feet and on top. Dude, one just doesn't make excuses when they hold the title trophy. Wanna examine or place the records of some other top teams under a microscope over the last 9-years?
Dunbar doesn't need to be the Alabama of football or Kentucky in basketball for high school. In Maryland, the name DUNBAR stand on its own and it's very clearly recognized on its own merit. Listen dude, every kid doesn't want to attend Dunbar nor can they if they all did want to attend Dunbar. Again, I just don't know why you insist of pursuing that whacko line of thought. You are obsessed about Dunbar having a new field. So would you rather they continued to play all their games away or have Poly as their home? You just want the have nots to continue to be have nots while the Gilmans and Calvert Halls and River Hills and other haves flourish at the expense of others.
So tell me OLI, name one program beside Dunbar that you know fears another team and name the feared team. This should be a good one!
I don't know who fears who but there are definitely teams that duck teams and definitely duck challenging schedules. Calvert Hall comes to mind. The CHC people have said on this board recently that Dunbar is ducking them after last years game. They called and asked about playing again this upcoming season and Dunbar declined. Now some could say this is fear. I'm just saying, as we know I'm a Dunbar supporter and FAR FROM A CHC FAN!
By the way, do you know who's Calvert's daddy?
