Football: All hail the teams from Northern California

December 18, 2010 |  8:36 pm

Yes, the weather stunk this weekend at the Home Depot Center. And yes, the Southern California teams looked like they had never seen rain before.

But the Northern California teams were all well-coached, well-prepared and simply better. I'm watching De La Salle dismantle Pac-5 champion Servite (it's 35-0 in the second quarter), and the Spartans are looking like the De La Salle of 151-game win streak fame.

Ex-Taft Coach Troy Starr texted me, "Shocking... Titanic is on. I am going to change the channel."

There's going to be a lot of second-guessing on Sunday, but the bottom line is all hail Northern California for coming to Southern California and kicking butt.
