: : : : : : Cypress, much respect. Great game to witness, crowds
: : : : : : From both sides were great. You guys can ball and your coach is legit. Canít wait for the
: : : : : : Rematch at our place!
: : : : : :For sure
: : : : Great game. Be careful Crean, you don't want to start winning the Empire League too fast. Unless you want that upgrade to the Trinity League that is coming....
: : : Crean won't get moved to the Trinity. Makes no sense for a bunch of reasons, most simply that'd make an odd number of teams. 2nd reason, their football team went 0-5 in the Empire. Unless we start seeing more schools split their sports into different leagues, I think they'll be in the Empire league for at least an additional 2 year cycle. Football will always be the main motivator, then comes basketball and/or overall performance in the league. If they were to move up, it'd be to either Century or South Coast.
: : Yes it is so fair to have a private school in with public schools. Lets see, our attendance boundary is from Main St. to 5th Ave. and Crean's is..Earth! Sounds fair. They have a 6'8 kid from (ineligible now, but played last year and half this year)AUSTRALIA. The rest of the league gets a 2 mile radius of kids to choose from while they get a planet. Joke. Get em out. Go to League with St. Margarets like they were. Add em to CVC, Fairmont,Pacifica Christian. They are all cheaters too. African kids, Australian kids,etc.
: Might be an interesting league of St. Margaret's, CVC, SVC, Crean, Fairmont.. they all would be similar in football except for St. Margaret's. They're in D6.. the rest are all D12 or D13. Not a good fit
: Crean is getting too large attendance-wise with 800+ kids and plans to run at like 1500 down the road. When they get to 1000 or more, they will have to move on from the Empire. Will OC ADs allow them into another public league? They won't have a choice depending on if Crean reclassifies into the same status as those Trinity teams. The San Joaquin League can't take them because those schools are all classified as "small school" for releaguing purposes. Crean has bigger fish to fry and will no way classify as a small school again.
Who says it needs to be fair? It's just about finding a grouping that fits competitively. If Crean continues to move up, they will be moved up league/division wise, it's that simple. The same can be said for Cypress, etc. I hate losing players to private schools, but I don't complain about it. The kids make their choice and if that is the high school experience they want and it makes them happy, more power to them.
