Re: NCS Predictions 2014

i thought we left that behind in the last board. "It'llllll nevvvvvver worrrrrrk" polonut. It isn't entirely an SRV/DLS thing. There is plenty of other hate here against Lamo, other schools, a player here and there, and now the miramonte coach lately. I want to use my last post to NCS Pre...

Re: NCS Predictions 2013

If you want to break into the top 6, do what the top 6 do (Campo, Acalanes, LL, DLS, SRV, Mira--sound familiar yet?). PLAY CLUB WATER POLO DURING THE OFF SEASON. Quit punishing the teams and great players that have dedicated much of their lives to club teams for doing what it really takes to get int...

Re: UCI- what is going on?

While I understand the original question of this thread, I would say the bigger question is why can't UCI, Pepperdine, LBSU, UCSB, and UOP consistently compete with the Big 4. If I am not mistaken, NCAA Water Polo only allows for a maximum of 4.5 scholarships, so why is it that USC, UCLA, and Cal i...

Re: NCS Predictions 2013

Cocopolo - Calling someone "lowPoloIQ" ... nice, professional move. Why not just make your point and avoid the jabs? Looks like you attended the SRV-DLS game last night. My call at this point: 1 - Miramonte - enough already said ... depth and skill will carry them. Beatable ... yes, but a...

Re: NCS Predictions 2013

The 680 16's will presumably be the same team that they were, when as 14's, they placed 2nd in every major tourney (Kap 7, SD Cup, USCC, and JO's). If they stay together maybe they will break the defection to Lamo cycle. Competition is a good thing. There was a very strong group of 14u and 16u 680 ...

Re: NCS Predictions 2013

I think that the only way water polo can grow as a sport is if there are more clubs fielding teams at all levels. 5 clubs with 1 team at each age group are so much more valuable than 1 club with 5 teams in an age group, or 1 club scooping up all the talent in the NCS so they can be competitive at J...

Re: NCS Predictions 2013

Put a kid on what is essentially an all star team and they look better than they might on a less talented team. ...or what happens in too many cases, you try to put a standout from a weaker team on an all star team, and they don't cut it. ...or in many cases, you have lots of kids paying their dues...

Re: NCS Predictions 2013

Cocopolo - I think what suzy might mean is that you come off very whiny about everything you write. You seem to also think everyone that disagrees with you is a hater. I agree with suzy on this. I'm not a hater, as i genuinely hope you fially find the peace and whatever due you feelis is due DLS on ...

Re: NCS Predictions 2013

Maybe. I'm not sure agree with that either.


what other player would you agree with for top ncs cocopolo? seems like one of the campo players is definitely the shoe-in. Lots of other decent players in the conference, but not nearly at that caliber.

Re: NCS D1 Playoffs

There is a very small number of competitive teams so you would hate to penalize a team for playing in more competitive tourneys with CCS and SoCal teams. I would hope that common sense would have prevailed had LL beaten Acalanes. sorry everyone, but hoping that common sense prevails over anything t...

Re: NCS D1 Playoffs

Sounds like one things for sure. Everyone here has rolled over on their backs and conceded the championship to Miramonte. For the sake of the sport I hope none of you are actual players then. Thank goodness for NCS, that aside from Miramonte starters, I don't think there's a starter on any of the ot...

Re: Yet another ODP screw-up

This is by far the most rational post by a parent on this thread, perhaps by anyone else. I think the common thread in the other, more bellicose posts is not so much the ODP (which deserves its share of criticism to be sure), but rather parents living vicariously through their children. I think we ...
