: : : : Where was your great Coaching tonight?

: : : So Glendora goes undefeated. Wins CIF. wins around in State. Then loses to a border line open team on the road and they need to hire a new coach. How about this response......Great season! Well done.

: :
: : Exactly. Thirty two and one is impressive at any level. It's not like they get to pick what league they're in or what playoff division they're in.

: : Walt's Dog

: You are right. But the coach does pick his non-league schedule. Depending on the league that is 12 to 19 games. Every coach in Southern California knows what tournaments are top tier full of elite teams. Mid-level where some top tier to strong teams participate. Low level where some tournaments organizers restrict it to certain teams either by division level or quality of teams. You can argue that you can't control the tournaments either. Okay but usually the same level of teams are consistent. But teams move or drop out of tournaments. But a coach picks their non-league games that are not tournaments. Some coaches love a tough match-ups. Some coaches don't care who they play. But 90% of the coaches I know always want a game they can win or have a chance to win. Even if it is a showcase, extravaganza, shootout coaches try to control the match-up unless they know it is a winnable game.

: You can argue or try to spin things any way you want, but the Glendora's coach picked his non-league schedule. Fullerton Tournament, Whittier Christian Tournament and then his own tournament.

: Glendora won the Fullerton Tournament by an average of 55.5 points. The four teams Glendora played at the Fullerton Tournament were Bellflower (4AA) .333 win %, Los Amigos (4AA) .125 win %, Trabuco Hills (3AA) .778 win % and South Hills (3AA) .500 win %.

: Next Glendora won the Whittier Christian Tournament by an average of 49.75 points. The four teams Glendora played at the Whittier Christian Tournament were La Habra (2A) .192 win %, La Mirada (4A) .400 win %, Monrovia (4AA) .125 win % and Whittier Christian (3A) .724 win %.

: Glendora won the Glendora Tournament by an average of 38.2 points. The five teams Glendora played at their own tournament that the Glendora coach constructed the match-ups or bracket were Temple City (4AA) .643 win %, West Covina (2A) .481 win %, Elsinore (3A) .143 win %, Pasadena (3AA) .677 win % and Rancho Verde (3AA) .733 win %.

: Glendora won their four non-league games by an average of 38.75 points. The four teams were El Toro (3AA) .231 win %, South Torrance (2A) .417 win %, San Clemente (3AA) .517 win % and Garden Grove Pacifica (3A) .346 win %.

: So if you look at the 17 teams Glendora played in tournaments or non-league games 10 teams had a record below .500. 7 teams had a record .500 and above. Glendora played 3 teams from Division 2A, 6 teams from Division 3AA, 3 teams from Division 3A, 4 teams from Division 4AA and 1 team from Division 4A.

: So does Glendora's record of 32-1 still look impressive?

Yes still looks impressive...actually might be more impressive now that you let us know they won3 tournaments to go along with the League Championship and CIF Championship
