I pushed for Ryken to join the MIAA when they were an independent. People always complained that it was a long trip even though it'd be for football only. Also, Saints Peter & Paul on the Eastern Shore is a non-football playing MIAA/IAAM member, which means that schools as far away from Easton as Glenelg Country, SJCP and Gerstell are travelling down there for weekday afternoon games. If they're willing to do that, playing a Friday night game at Ryken every other year would be a breeze.

SFA to the WCAC would be a natural fit. Ryken in the MIAA would be immediately competitive with Loyola and could become pretty good seeing as they're the only football-playing private school covering a large part of Southern MD. They also have great facilities.

IMO an SMR move to the MIAA affects....

-The basketball program negatively.
-The lacrosse program positively, assuming it's A conference.
-The football program positively.
-Everything else stays the same.

Travel would increase, but not by much.

Not that bad of a deal.

For pure entertainment value, I'm all for throwing the intellectual towel in the ring and resorting to insults, but damn, you gotta make sure it's a good one. I'm not sure that calling someone Kellyann Conway is an even an insult. I mean...aren't her and Kushner given the most credit for winning the last presidential election of the United States of America? Just because I probably couldn't sit in a room with the woman, doesn't mean that I can't climb out of my feelings enough to know that she gets ish done and is great at her job. Whoever decided to blow this thread up with the promised hope of 72 virgins on the other side gave a fat and lazy attempt.

If ABC eventually does drop out of the WCAC then it seems that would trigger some type of significant restructure of the WCAC.  Bishiop Sullivan for football only has been discussed.  I've heard rumors about Spalding, but I think those are only rumors.  If I had a magic wand I would make a two division DMV Catholic Athletic Conference with a Baltimore and a Washington Division.  Gilman and Mcdonogh would end up having to go independent.  That conference would probably be the toughest conference in the nation.

Wow, 5 straight posts by people on my "ignore" list. It's so great not having to read piss poor grammar and everything else those idiots spew early in the morning.

 

DW and Mamba are pro-public school trolls and Guru would back SFA if they openly started paying players since he has family there.

 

 

Stay in your Schedule Boy and Game Scores lane and perhaps you would not have so many to ignore....

 

You only seem to suffer with a mouth full of eagle feathers when you try to talk football and just can't handle responses.  Long gone are your two epic games against Gilman and Gilman for that matter.  You'd "thunk" McD would have been more relevant with Gilman out of the way.  But Nope, SFA has stepped up and that's what got your blue-blood boiling.  And The DayWalker just loves it.

 

Do you and ignore me as you say while reading and fuming over everything I say.  But I'll never ignore your pompous p_unk @zz.  You are one who just makes my day whenever we chat and I get to bust your McDeesNuts. 

 

EI, what's the early 2017 Vegas line on SFA and McD?  How about the line on McD winning the Bush League A conference?   :P

Step down to the WCAC-B for football, yes. Step out of the WCAC completely, absolutely not. The guys that run DM, GZ, and SJC know damn well that Carroll carried the league for several years in the past...If ABC left, that will be an Archdiocese call. Even if they decided to do that, now is not the time with the way that surrounding neighborhood is changing.

ABC has the alumni to compete in the WCAC. They just need the right administration to start the engine again.

Not sure why you think the changing neighborhood has/plays any role in ABC being a great program again. Winning does that! Its also clear that the alumni does close to nothing for the program. Hopefully a B division happens, then theyll have a shot at putting a few winning seasons together, B division title runs and several DCSAA A/AA State title runs. And their past success isnt helping them get kids into the building today, again winning does that.

The Baltimore-Washington Catholic Athletic Conference would be perfect. McDonogh, Woodberry Forest and Gilman should find a way to get into the IAC.

Come on counselor!!  If ABC dropped out of the WHACK WCAC on the heels of Ryken's departure (with recent bolts of PVI, O'Connell, GT Prep) there would be no WCAC football to "restructure."  You would be merely a tertiary 5-team entity with only hopes of joining some other entity who would perhaps have you (what's left of the former WCAC) minus reclassify mercenary DeMatha who would be the one to end up independent and not McDonogh and Gilman.

 

Your cross counselor...  :lol:

ABC's enrollment and almost total lack of full paying students are absolutely crushing the sports program. The influx of wealthy families that are set on building roots in the neighborhood could change that in a hurry. ABC can't start taking the correct steps with their football program until the bottom level needs of the school are addressed. Have you walked the halls there recently? The Archdiocese of Washington runs the show there now because without them, ABC would of shut down years ago. Do you think tey care about a winning football team right now? They just want the place to float on it's own...I thought this was common knowledge in DC.

I believe the "Archdiocese of Washington runs the show" at Carroll because they own the school and grounds upon which the school rest.  Beats me what you are talking about the school would have shut down years ago when I understand Carroll is a product of three archdiocese schools shutting down to form what's now Carroll, the only catholic archdiocesan high school in DC.  Is this also common knowledge in DC or am I wrong since you know DC so well 'cept how the city was formed from MD and VA and later land returned to VA (your NE boarding school / DeMatha education).

Would you like to be referred to as "the Google guy" or "the Wikipedia guy"? Carroll was opened in 1951 by the Archdiocese of Washington and in 1989 took on the remaining students from other closing schools like other DC Catholic schools did. It's not a product of three schools coming together. That's like saying DeMatha is a product of two schools coming together after they took on 21 girls from Regina when that school closed. Look it up, Google guy....

And when I say "run the show" I mean making all decisions for the school. The Archdiocese was not telling ABC how to run their football program when they were the best team in DC like they are now. I don't expect you to understand any of this since you're not from DC or MD. What's that hilarious phrase that you dropped on us? Was it "Crabbers...Nuff said"? I got the goofball chills for you on that one, DW.

The WCAC is not going anywhere with or without ABC.  GZ, DM, SJC and GC are the anchor schools for football and are firmly entrenched.  Adding one or two teams is easy.  Adding the right teams is the part that requires some strategic planning.

Driveby, if AW owns Carroll then why your special emphasis that AW makes all the decisions for the school.  Owners tend to do that Sniper.  You think you got a chill when I mentioned I attended Hampton High, that pales to the flat out gut busting laughter I experienced when you told us you were a G-Unit white boy from Chevy Chase who attended a NE boarding school and DeMatha.  Now that's OG goofball chillin'.....  :D 

 

But yes, as a military brat and member myself, I did live in many places to include TX, MS, VA, DC, IN, HI, MD, and other stateside locations, and overseas.  I've experienced the world beyond a NE boarding school and Hyattsville, oh -- and Chevy Chase.

Sure, the WCAC recent history is clear it can add one or two schools to the league BUT they also drop out so quickly.  You will soon run out of the limited private schools in the pool and the anchor four is not a league.  You really cannot afford to lose ABC if it's true that Ryken is history.  The WCAC is running out of Saint This and Catholic That....  Before there was the WCAC, what were you...  Things are not forever, not even the WCAC.

Exactly. Chesepeake Region Catholic League. Schools with similar mission and ideals.

You obviously don't understand how ABC works so stop trying. Wikipedia isn't going to help you nor is comparing it to a regular ownership situation. If you want to search the DC board archives for an in-depth analysis, it's there. This is not your comfort zone, DW. Daywalk away.

And no, you didn't bust out in laughter when I said either of those things. I had to explain to you how headmasters of boarding schools are judged because you had zero clue. My race and where I'm from was dug up from your towel boy. It was months down the road before you even knew that was posted since it was just nonsense minutiae between GA and I in a scores thread. If anything, that whole deal just reminded me that someone is always lonely enough to be watching your every move on an anonymous high school football forum....

Baltimore team in location only. Kingsley from NC, Miller, Swann, Brightwell and Wiley from Delaware, Robinson from Bowie, John from Lanham, Coley from Aberdeen via ECA and yes 3 from Baltimore Thomas via ECA, McDowell via Douglass and Wright the only non transfer. Sounds like a Baltimore team to me

Damn, that makes it even more impressive that SFA won the MIAA with only 14 players. Those guys were true iron men!

No need for me to Google Driveby.  What I don't know or haven't experienced myself, I know and have relationships with folks like Robert Harris.  Do you know him?  Have you ever even spoken to him.  Your world is centered around DeMatha.  My world and experiences are far more vast Sniper....

She makes a fool of herself everyday including the now epic and historical gaffe, "Bowling Green Massacre." That's one of many misquotes, "alternative facts" and outright lies she has blurted out in the last 18 months. Most level-headed people know it was an extreme insult.
