    @Nancy: Are any social media forums positve? 95% of Yelp are negative. As are Google reviews and Mid Valley Sports.

    Hi Nancy

    I agree that the general theme here is less than uplifting and often argumentative . At the same time , it’s important to be honest and realistic about the topic at (Bassett hiring) hand so that things can actually move in truly positive direction .

    Good luck with your season !

    I hope the kids return the last time they got rid of Spat kids didn’t come out and play again next season. It be interesting if player feed into this program. Spat was one of a kind great fit for Bassett. He and staff turned athletes into football players

    Hmmm…… interesting . Well at least they named a coach . Tough job when your first game is 8 weeks from Thursday and everyone luvs the guy who just left …..
    Not familiar with coach , did ok at Northview like 20 years ago , and one year stint at Glendora in tough Baseline league ten years ago……a lot has changed in high school football in the last decade !
    What is Bassett doing scheduling Cantwell and Whittier ? The joys of Miramonte league with six games against feeble friends might allow some late season D14 type success but opener vs Cantwell will be brutal

    Aug 18th DO Preps predicts Cantwell 54 Bassett 0

    I only give Bassett a 50-50 chance of fielding a team. They may join Keppel in dropping football or maybe combine the teams.
