    Bunch of crap?

    Are you implying that working year round doesn’t make you better? So San Gabriel getting creamed by schools that care about their football programs is a good thing to you?

    Good Lord. What is wrong with you son?

    The San Gabriel situation is exactly like the scene of a really bad car crash: nobody cared before it happened, and nobody will care when the mess is cleared. Right now, however, we can’t take our eyes off the disaster.

    I’m hoping that sghs wins some games and does better than expected. It would prove that this year round stuff is a bunch of crap.

    This is not the first theory we have heard regarding sghs football.

    Is it more hot air?

    A June start guarantees an 0-10 season.
