: : : : : : : : AV wins 22nd in a row
: : : : : : : : AV, u really gotta stop pumping yourselves up! Since you'll already on here, go ahead and tell us who you beat? Let me guess, Palmdale Junior High?
: : : : : :
: : : : : : :22 in a row!!! When was the last time that happened to a 1A, 1AA or Open the? Crickets..lol
: : : : :
: : : : : Etiwanda is 22-1. They have won 20 in a row. Among those 20 are Troy, Pali, LaJolla Country Day, Mater Dei, Camarillo, Serra, Bishop Montgomery.
: : : : : Let's check out the mighty Lopes schedule. I'll give you Canyon as a good win. Then we have Desert (on an air force base), a couple of Knights, Little Rocks, Eastside etc. Zzzzzzzz
: : : : : It's almost like you AV folk just want to be put in your place.
: : : : : All I know is you better win state for as good a game as you talk.
: : : : I am not quite sure what the motivation for any of the posters is when it comes to the Lady Lopes. I can assure you that the posters are not the coaches of AV. It is, in fact, infuriating to the program. The hate and negativity directed at them is sad.
: : : : It is in all likelihood a parent (rather current or past), but it could also be someone throwing this crap up so that the haters will continue to smash on AV.
: : : : I have no idea where AV will end up -- I would guess a top 4 seed in 1A. We will find out this afternoon.
: : : : Perhaps those of you who are so quick to jump on the AV posts can just ignore them and they will go away. It would be nice if we could just discuss basketball.
: : : : AV's schedule is not as strong as the other Open teams, but I am sure most schools would happily take a 52-4 record in their last 56, a trip to the state championship (regardless of level), CIF Championship (regardless of level), and a top 25 ranking this year.
: : : : Good luck and congrats to the 16 teams who make the Open this afternoon and to the 4 who don't. All of these teams are in rare air... Each of these schools would roll the majority of teams not only in Socal, but in the country.
: : :
: : : The animosity (so to speak) towards the AV posters comes from their over-the-top bragging about how great they are and how they are better than everyone.
: : : I believe most people would ignore them if they just weren't so antagonistic with their posts.
: : : I agree - most schools would love to have the banner and the appearance in the state finals.
: : : But rather than just enjoying it an maybe let others point out the success, they take it upon themselves.
: : : I don't seem to see that from other schools.
: : : Even the "elitist" schools everyone seems to hate - Mater Dei, Sierra Canyon, Oaks Christian, Chaminade, Harvard Westlake, etc. - just put their heads down and play. People discuss them because they are good and are playing the best.
: : : For instance, there is no talk when Harvard Westlake plays Flintridge Sacred Heart. But people want to know what happens when they play Alemany.
: : : My advice to Coach Price - tell your parents, players, and alumni to just stay off the message boards. No one bashes on AV "unprovoked". It is almost always in response to some "look how great we are" post. There was a recent thread about how their JV team is undefeated. Really?
: : : Good luck with your placement/seeding this weekend and in the upcoming playoffs. Enjoy the ride, it ends all to fast for everyone.
: : Agree, but I can 100% promise you that this is not from the players or coaches... anyone can look up a player on maxpreps and type their # and name and claim to be them....
: : In your above mentioned post, I could act as one of the HW twins and say whatever I want... so basically the bashers (aka AV supporters) are simply posting online anonymously and actually trying to incite the AV negativity, in my opinion....
: I hear what you are saying 100%.
: Anyone can claim to be anyone.
: But if your coach knows his parents, he can get a good idea by reading the posts if it might be some of them.
: People tend to repeat what they say in posts and vice-versa.
: And the more Coach Price can point out it is negative and giving the program a bad name and making it even harder to get good games, maybe it will start to have an effect.
why hide in the desert go play real talent
