: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : 8. Mater Dei

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Looks like CIF put out their list of the schools on the Open Watch List. looks like the first post left out a lot of schools on that list. Here's a more accurate list of all the schools on there:

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Alemany

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Bishop Montgomery

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Brea Olinda

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Camarillo

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Canyon / Canyon Country

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Centennial / Corona

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Chaminade

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Etiwanda

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Glendora

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Harvard-Westlake

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Mater Dei

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Long Beach Poly

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Redondo Union

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Ribet Academy

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Serra

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Sierra canyon

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Valley View

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : West Torrance

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Windward

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : they are going to take 8 he is putting his favorite

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : My top 8 out of this bunch would be:

: : : : : : : : : : : : : 1. Harvard Westlake

: : : : : : : : : : : : : 2. Windward

: : : : : : : : : : : : : 3. Sierra Canyon

: : : : : : : : : : : : : 4. Ribet Academy

: : : : : : : : : : : : : 5. Serra

: : : : : : : : : : : : : 6. Canyon

: : : : : : : : : : : : : 7. Alemany

: : : : : : : : : : : : : 8. Etiwanda

: : : : : : : : : : : : : If I had room to squeeze one more, Mater Dei would be close.

: : : : : : : : : : : : Canyon over MD, you are hilarious. You got to be a Canyon parent. Smh

: : : : : : : : : : : : Not a Canyon parent, but I will say that I favor them over Mater Dei this year. Seen both play and I strongly believe they are a lot better than Mater Dei. I believe they will play each other later this month. Maybe by then you too can lean more towards Canyon than Mater Dei. LOL. Time will tell.

: : : : : : : : : : Yep, sounds like a Canyon parent.

: : : : : : : : : : This is my top eight for the open. Let me know what the critics here think.

: : : : : : : : : 1. Sierra Canyon

: : : : : : : : : 2. Harvard Westlake

: : : : : : : : : 3. Ribet Academy

: : : : : : : : : 4. Serra

: : : : : : : : : 5. Windward

: : : : : : : : : 6. Alemany

: : : : : : : : : 7. Canyon

: : : : : : : : : 8. Etiwanda

: : : : : : : : No way Ribet should be in there and not Long Beach Poly. That's comical.

: : : : : : : : Well if we all look at Ribet Academy's record as opposed to LBP's, the answere is in the pudding as they say. Ribet has played some good teams and fared well. LBP has been struggling a lot more as of right now. So at this point in the season I don't see how anyone can say LBP belongs in the top 8 over a Ribet Academy.

: : : : : : : I donít have a dog in this fight, but I must say I do agree with the last top 8 list. Even though I must also agree that there other teams on the bigger list that can also be deserving of playing in the open. One can make a good argument for some of those other teams.

: : : : : : C'mon man, Canyon is not deserving of that spot. Put MD or LB instead. WTF us going on, all ya are going crazy.

: : : :
: : : : : Not sure why some of you, like he last post is having a difficult time noticing that a school like Canyon is doing better than MD or LBP this year. Check the stats first before you come in here and speak unreasonableness.

: : :
: : : Taking a quick look at schedules, Canyon has lost to Ribet twice and to Alemany. Their wins are Fairmont Prep twice, Centennial, Fairfax and Granada Hills.

: : : For Mater Dei, their only common opponent was Fairmont Prep, who they also beat. Most of the MD games have been against out of the area teams so hard to gauge.

: : : They play each other next Monday, so I guess we will see.

: : : My take would be if I was Canyon, I want to be a favorite in D1 vs. the 8 seed in Open. Their big guns graduate so if they don't get a banner this year, it won't be happening for a while.

: : Long Beach Poly belongs in the Top 8 not Canyon or Ribet. Long Beach has played the toughest schedule and done very well even in losing their games are very close.

: Ribet going hard this year cause they know it will be a one and back to "D" (wherever they been) next year. I am not hating on them, do your thing but you better win or your fan base won't have anything to talk about lol. They been running their mouths in here since they got the transfers. Win something first smh!


When push comes to shove, if at all possible, CIF will put Ribet in Open. With only 8 teams, it may be controversial, but if they don't, they will destroy everyone in their division by 30+.

The Open division was created specifically for teams like Ribet - small private school that suddenly gets a bunch of elite players. Not hating at all, but this is the case here.

As poster above pointed out, they are a one year wonder, so they should go to Open and see how they do.

LBP dropping to D1 would help make for a great D1 division this year with other really good teams such as Chaminade, Canyon, etc.
