BigDrop DM could be playing the Super Bowl Champs and DW would say it doesn't matter. Nothing matters except Publics, the reason he doesn't want the big Publics to show up against the big Privates is he can't take disappointment. Like they say to be the best you gotta beat the best. You can't be the best if you won't even play the best
With DeM's recruited players and some say the most players in the NFL, maybe DeMatha should be playing for the Super Bowl jbdoormat... But I am NOT saying the DeMatha vs Gorman game doesn't matter, all games should matter. But the way you privates have things setup, your 3 or 4 exhibition non-conference games effectively don't matter outside of "rankings" you all hold near and dear.
BigDroop talked about a great 1980 DeMatha team, although all DeMatha teams seem to be great, only lost one game to so-called "national champions" Moeller. That 1980 year DeMatha lost that one non-conference game, was DeMatha it's league champion? If not, who and that's what I mean about all games should matter. It did then, but not so much nowadays --- My Pet Peeve With You Privates.
jbdoormat, you should craft a bumper sticker that says, "To Be The Best You Should Play and Beat the Best." And for your MIAA I would turn to SFA and ask would that include Paramus and IMG. And for the
WHACK WCAC DeMatha, it was the best in 2016, the #1 MD team in beating the best of Avalon, SM Ryken, B McNamara, Arch Carroll, and two games each against Good Counsel and St John's; 8 of their 12 games. If only Loyola were on DeMatha's schedule last season, speaking of the best!!!!!
