The TEN: 3/8/2023

(“The TEN” is not a top ten but ten items worth being included in “The TEN”)

  1. UCLA Head Coach Mick Cronin said Jaylen Clark has a lower leg injury and is out for the week. He won’t travel with the team to Las Vegas for the Pac-12 conference Tournament and will be reevaluated again next week. 
  2. Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith signed a three-year $105 million deal with the team. 
  3. Former Pasadena star Darius Brown II, now playing at Montana State, was named the Defensive Player of the Year in the Big Sky Conference.  
  4. Former Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr signed a four-year, $150 million deal with the New Orleans Saints. 
  5. The San Dimas-Bonita baseball game Saturday lasted one hour and 45 minutes. The Saints won 1-0. 
  6. The Lakers retired Pau Gasol’s jersey Tuesday night. 
  7. The Baltimore Ravens placed a nonexclusive tag on quarterback Lamar Jackson which means that Jackson can now engage in contract talks with other teams. If he signs an offer sheet with another team, Baltimore has the right to match the offer to keep him or take two first-round picks as compensation. 
  8. The New York Jets are in talks with the Green Bay Packers about a potential trade for quarterback Aaron Rodgers. 
  9. The New York Giants brought back quarterback Daniel Jones on a four-year $160 million deal. 
  10. Mike Moschetti’s first game as the head coach at St. Paul will be at Bishop Amat.

    bottom line? still no response to my question? Do you really insist Moschetti recruited Trinity league players to La Mirada HS on scholarship? You used present tense/ past tense? Haha no idea. Public Schools , such as LM, do not give scholarships! Lost credibility (should have) to all here with incorrect info

    you incorrectly think Moschetti has built his teams this way? Please describe how LM gave scholarships ( freakin public school) promised starting jobs, and all other bs you think you know? I respect coaches who turned pretty good programs into few years of greatness

    bottom line.? Exceed Amat? Are you suggesting Mosshetti’s strategy playing much better programs early suggests he truly thinks his club matches up well with those programs? LM lost by 40 or 50 points to those clubs.. Did Moschetti think LM matched up? He is much smarter than that, and scheduled much better teams to have players play against the best. I suggest he will continue to know trinity teams will beat heck out of SP for at least few years. That is if he schedules them again? He may choose to WIN games this time because the lack of success SP has had maybe club needs victories. NO I am not saying beat terrible teams , but learn winning again. How do you know Moschetti enticed Trinity League players? LM don’t offer scholarships . think

    After all the dust has settled on this Moschetti acquisition, what, realistically, should the SP administration expect of him within the next 2-3 years? I’d say the goal should be to meet and exceed what Bishop Amat puts on the field. Sure, Mike will mouth his usual “anybody, anywhere, anytime” mantra, and he’ll actually schedule MD and Servite…but matching the output of any Trinity league squad in the near future is out of the question.

    Another commenter suggested that Moschetti’s method of recruiting consists of enticing 2nd and 3rd string Trinity kids to come play for him, promising them playing time and scholarships, in lieu of warming the bench for the behemoths. I wholeheartedly agree that this is how Mike builds his teams, and this means his squads will necessarily not be up to the level of Trinity’s starters. So getting to the level of Amat–and perhaps pushing a bit past it–has to be the feasible objective.

    Moschetti’s pay package will alter the pay scale for D3 and lower privates. Booster cash is there and is going to be used.

    St. Paul needed a shake up. Will coach be cleaning house and bring in his own staff ?
