    When we had the principals and AD’s meeting with CIF many AD’s and CIF said we can not survive without what football brings in financially. Most schools pay for other sports with the money they generate from football. Many said if we don’t have football we can’t afford to have other sports period. CIF said if we don’t have football we will not be in business and we would close down before the end of the year. What I got out of the meeting is if we don’t have football we will not have other sports programs. My feeling is football will be push back as long as the school years goes to make it happen. We might see football start in February.

    Does anyone believe that there is going to be a high school football in August? If you do please explain why you do. “It will go away like a miracle” fearless leader said.
    From T. Peterson: At this point we just don’t know. I’ve spoken to several coaches, teachers and administrators and the bottom line is always that – at this point we don’t know. I had one AD lay out a plan for me that would seem to work. If they are given the green light by August 1st they could kick off the season in mid to late September and play 7 games including all league games, and still have the CIF playoffs. That same AD also told me that if the students are allowed back in the classroom then they should be allowed to play football – and all sports for that matter – because the risk is the same. But again it all depends on what the powers that be decide. I’m still hopeful and will continue to write as if there will be a season, again its only early May, but it’s still too early to tell. Also I was told moving sports schedules around, fall to spring, spring to fall etc. is not a viable option.

    Arcadia administration knew they had to get a Pasadena connection to get the Pasadena kids. Not much of a coach but knows how to bring in kids. Muir was loaded with talent and he could not win, it’s going to be bad for Arcadia until they get both a good recruiter and good coach. Back to the old Arcadia when people will come to see the band at half time and than leave before the 3rd quarter starts.
