    Called Azusa, San Marino, Norwalk and Wilson asking if they are taking applications for the head coach football position. All 4 said the job has been filled. When I asked by whom no school would give me a answer.
    By T. Peterson: I got the same thing at two of them. No new head coach has been announced at either. Although Norwalk did make a hire.

    Hope everyone realizes that Laker ownership doesn’t need to be too nervous about the team’s future, because they have that $3 billion cable deal to sustain them through many more years of underachievement. In financial terms, the team can afford to be fat and lazy.
