By stating that gostag "dont have none" in reference to nuts you are actually stating that he does, in fact, have nuts. What you did is commonly referred to in medical circles as the "Family Ties" Syndrome (e.g. "there aint not nothing we can't help each other through" actually implies that there were things that the Keatons could, in fact, NOT help one another through). Poor Keaton family...

That comment was a little....off. And stop with the nut riding. Dematha is totally irrelevant on this thread and here you come mentioning them. Like are you the mascot or something? You rep the team harder than the kids who play for them!! im not a dematha hater, or a st.johis fan, but the nut riding has to end. Youre in every thread doing this. THE NUT RIDING MUST END! You're like a crab. Annoying and on nuts. You're going to get flagged for excessive nut riding if you keep this up.

what number was SJC? were they even in the top 20? only number i remember is 4, as in their losses. but keep talking crap about a team you lost to by a combined 82-21 this season. oh, and lets not bring up the trashy way your parents acted at the game. again, i can't stand DM, but SJC literally has no right to talk trash about anyone or anything with how consistently dissapointing every aspect of your school is despite the funding and talent the school manages to bring in. have fun wallowing in mediocrity (although, with your resources, your school can't even be considered mediocre).

That said, no it isn't (you lied); and no you didn't. Get a life you pitiful troll. The amount of time you spend on a website making up stories in an attempt to make DeMatha look bad is so sad. Did your kiddo not get into DeMatha, is that why you are so mad? Or did he ride the bench there because he wasn't good enough to get on the field? If that was the case it is likely due to the troll-like genetics he inherited from you.

TRUE be told - a lot of WCAC kids who were heavily recruited by DM - GPAs would've messed up the curve for your son and other DM athletes with their 2.0 below GPA if they accepted DM offere, but their SMART kids.

Sorry to Bust your bubble - just like the Nationally #1 football team oops....I mean #1 team in ...oops ....they're not even #1 in DMV.  Just  wasted several key strokes on a dad who wants to live his football life through his son.  Let your son enjoy HS and sit the bench before he grows up like you.

you know, I could rip on your obvious homophobic remark, but let's go another route. maybe DM lost their whole team (they didn't), but you know what doesn't matter? wether SJC lost their whole team. You know why? because they choke. every year. coaches come and go and SJC keeps choking. Plank gives money... to SJC because that was the only place he could go after he couldn't handle prep.. and they still choke. new football field... choke. new star players... choke. new uniforms.. choke. talented... sure. choke artists? absolutely.

Very old news.  Everybody on this site seemed to call it years ago.  Two head coaches doesn't make any sense.

How are you going to have a job if you are showing the new guy all the ropes, and you essentially have the same title?  Patterson had to know what was up last year.

Is anybody going to discuss why SJC never considers the wealth of former players and coaches that never get considered for positions at SJC?  Oh, no?  I didn't think so.  Anyway, I predict that this will be pretty much more of the same from SJC and the administration might start to rethink their relationship with their biggest booster.  This is going to be a long process that might take another twenty or so years.

I've got three words for SJC and Kevin: Michael Williams Brown.

KJJ, to be fair they did win a WCAC football championship...in 1989. To put that in perspective, since SJC last won a WCAC football championship, DeMatha, Good Counsel, Gonzaga, Bishop McNamara, and PVI (YES PVI) have all won WCAC football championships. To help further put that in perspective, the last time SJC won a WCAC championship the Cold War was still a thing, Nintendo was considered a technological leap, Michael Jackson was not yet creepy, and Marion Barry had not yet been unfairly set up. 

But at least their girl's basketball team gets Ws.

It is if you count playoffs - they played multiple times in a couple of seasons. Overall I think Gonzaga was something like 5-9 vs. SJC in the past 12 years. Keep in mind though, there were some lean times pre-Brady.

Having played for coach patterson, it is my strong opinion that he should not have been fired. Ya'll are sicing SJC's bad season this year. They went 7-4 only losing to Stuebenville the no 8 team in ohio 111 nationally and they made it as far as the ohio state championship game i believe, dematha-the number 3 team in the country, and macnamara when they were missing theyre 5* defensive end and difference maker, and d#mn near beat them without him if they hadnt collapsed in the 4th quarter. And on top of that they beat the number one team in the area and top 10 nationally in gonzaga, and beat a very good and always well coached good counsel team. I do not see how this warrants coach patterson getting fired, when annually sjc willingly plays a competitve national ooc schedule and then has to compete in the wcac-the hardest conference in america. And they do pretty well every year as mentioned he has had something like 8 winning season and 10 playoff births. IMO if you are going to fire him why not promote their DC whose proven himself in the wcac, season by season putting out one of the best, if not THE best defense, in the conference. Why hire a coach that isnt proven in the wcac and had the 5th best offense in the conference out of only 8 teams. After all high school football isnt only about winning championships which it seems like sjc has focused on now. Coach P was a great coach and i hate to see you guys on this board criticize him the way you do.

Coach P should've been fired... i agree with you SJC isn't a bad team they have some great players other than Terrell. They didn't lose against Mac because he wasn't there because the kid that plays opposite to him #3 is an animal and made up for Terrell's absence, they lost that game because the coaching staff didn't a to Mac scoring on there secondary. Coach P has never won a game against Dematha. Last year they came very close and still couldn't pull it off. They had the best team last year with them barely throwing to a 6'5" wide receiver who was great. Coaching staff didn't know how to use him. SJC had a senior QB last year that they say on the sideline because they couldn't swallow their pride when the other two couldn't produce. So yes it was time for Cosch Patterson to go! He has made some horrible coaching decisions.

Disagree @go_johnnies

Argubably! WCAC is the toughest high football league in the country.  SJC has been in the middle or near the top, year after year.  LIL Joe did not & could not manage talent well enough to win a Championship, PERIOD.

Yes, it's a tough job, and I assume a tough call for SJC shot callers to fire little Joe, which may have contributed to a delay of his firing for at least a decade +yrs.  This past season was not the reason lil Joe was fired, the last 8 seasons was the reason he was fired.  

You can't constantly keep recruiting dawgs on your team, get them on campus and try to tame them to be pussy cats and expect to WIN in this league. 

If we want to call this the toughest league in the country, then you have to play, coach, and recruit tough to Win. 

I beg to differ with coaching staff not knowing how to use players. I personally, know that they have or had plenty of solid experienced coaches (former NFL, D1, National Youth coaches, etc.) on staff at the JV, Frosh, and Varsity level; however, lil Joe didn't LISTEN to them and did not follow the K.I.S.S method.  

As far as the Defensive of Coordinator - he's been there for quite some time and was passed over.  Well, I hope the DC is not 😎 Blind, it's just a matter of time.  Best to leave on his own account before the 🔨 comes down. Defense win 🏆championships (you seen🙈 any lately).

Last year they had a 6'5 WR (now at Wake Forest) and didn't throw him the ball in OT game against DM, after scoring a TD in game, and getting numerous DPIs against DBs. I knew then that the HC could not coach and was out of touch with KISS method. Little did I know that lil Joe lost 2️⃣3️⃣straight to DM.....Cmon Man. 

👍Yes, it was ⏰ for lil Joe to ✈️✈️
