Yeah since CHC and Loyola [Censored] at football this year maybe they should be forced to go down to the B bracket with Gilman.... Boy Latin and St Pauls already know their limitations with other sports because really lacrosse is their only A bracket sport......... CHC also [Censored] real bad in basketball the past several years..... Lets move them to B .....Love that argument about moving now MIAA schools out of the MIAA A bracket in lacrosse....

My sons attend large MIAA schools and I agree that it's insane that a school has a $30M endowment and yet "I'm sorry sir we can't field an A level football team." Yes you can, you're just not successful at recruiting and growing winning teams.

That Loyola loss to MSJ. WOW. detest to be that head coach, brand new AD up in Knott Hall............1st 4 games include a 3OT loss to Georgetown Prep, OT loss to St. Marys and an absolute whooping by MSJ.

A team can move up or down every 2 years. In any sport. Regardless of the outcomes for the next few years, all the teams in the A are committed to be there for the foreseeable future. The only team considering a move to the B anytime soon is Gilman.

Schools don't use their endowments to pay for athletic programs. Even if it was, a $30 Mil endowment would be near the bottom of the MIAA A. That's about 1/3rd of McDonogh's endowment & 1/7th of Gilman's

LOL, That's a pretty high bar. SF is ranked #3 in the nation with a real shot at running the table and ending up #1. Also have a Heisman candidate as an alum. Fact: The top MIAA football teams would kill almost every public school in the State. McD is down this year but believe they've done pretty well in Conference for the last several years (excluding the Covid year). Last year's LB football success was an anomaly. Sorry, that Program is not built for the weekly grind of the MIAA A Conference with a sprinkle of WCAC teams thrown in for good measure. A couple of very good skill players with several other good role players is not the recipe for sustained success in A Conference football. This program construct may win you a Turkey Bowl upset or two and keep the faithful from storming the Bastille:

Loyola is very young at key positions this year and their most elite player on offense and defense who is committed to Duke for football has not played a down because of a knee injury. I agree their program needs more depth to compete with MSJ and Spaulding of the MIAA. I heard their JV made up of mostly freshman is undefeated including a win over MSJ so perhaps they are on the right track to rebuilding the program.

What's the age limit to play in private schools? I know you can't turn 19 before August 31 in public.

The recipe for success is not a big secret. Half of the starting line up is made up of experienced youth players who got playing varsity game time as freshmen or sophomores with the rest of the first string coming from a winning and super successful JV program. A commitment to recruiting at least 3 quality linemen per year, a great lifting and conditioning program and outstanding offensive and defensive line technique coaching will lead to dominance in the trenches and the skill players will flock to the program. Loyola has the facilities and the coaching staff: It needs 6-9 quality youth recruits per year with three of them being large athletic (for their size) linemen.

This allows them to compete against the post grad schools like Culver and Deerfield.

I know its only Sept but looking forward - is there really any teams outside of BL, McD & CH that can actually win the ship next year?

And StP is definitely on the up but lets get real - they don't have the depth to beat the big 3 when it counts.

And will Gilman or MSJ come in last?

Inquiring minds want to know

StP peaked too late last season. They trounced McD and barely missed making the playoffs. Not saying they will make a run, but counting them out as without depth is underestimating the program.

Are there any teams outside of BL, CHC & McD that are bringing in junior/senior transfers from in or out of state? There lies the answer....

Negative........Pretty confident that MSJ has zero holdbacks on their team as well. MSJ does not give athletic money to any of it's students....accept maybe their Basketball program....All tuition aid help is based on finances....

I would love for the MIAA football superiority claim to be true, but it's not. However, let's put some real numbers to it. There are maybe 5 public HS teams in MD that would have a solid chance of beating any MIAA team (Q Orchard, Milford, Dunbar, Broadneck, Arundel maybe). When you start looking at the level of ball being played below state rank #20 (top 5 public HS and maybe 3 MIAA schools), the level of football being played is pretty horrendous. For example, Loyola's giant egg against MSJ, or any game that St. Palotti plays in. It would be like arguing HS lacrosse rankings in Wyoming tbh.

Disclaimer: lots of schools do about 1 of these per year, every year.

Most MIAA varsity teams have 4-5 freshmen on the roster. Sometimes only 2-3. Another 15-20 freshmen on JV. Another 15 on Fresh/Soph.

And a lot of schools will play 1 or 2 public or out of state teams in the early season to get those kids into a game.
