    Who cares about transfers. It is a dead issue. All transfers have been cleared by CIF and therefore are eligble at their current schools.
    I will be rooting for EL Monte no matter how far the their kids have to commute to school

    Damn you guys still on it, still crying over one player beating. That’s the way you make it seem, because Cueva and 1100 yards and 20 TDs did nothing. Get over it and make your kids better.
