    Hope you get better.
  4. @Sharkbait You're absolutely correct about Miami. Down here it's so much happening that football at times can get left in the dust. Now if it's rival schools with Northwestern, Jackson, Central, Carol City and Booker T. Washington well then you can get a packed house. You will never get more than 10,000 like those Texas schools do and besides unless you go to FIU or Dolphin stadium Traz Powell only holds 10,000. Five thousand on each side.
  5. I don't think enrollments make a difference at a school in terms of stadiums. Now obviously Miami schools don't have stadiums on school grounds except privates but Broward does. Just look at these numbers and mind you none of these stadiums have big seating capacity except Traz Powell stadium at 10 000. John A. Ferguson 4300 G. Holmes Braddock 3500 South Dade 3300 Coral Gables 3200 Felix Varela 3100 Hialeah Gardens 3000 Flanagan 3100 Western 3200 Cypress Bay 4600 West Broward 3100 Miramar 2700
  6. You know it's bad when are private schools such as Bolles, Bishop Moore, American Heritage Plantation/Delray, St. Thomas, Cardinal Gibbons, Belen Jesuit and so fourth suppose to have all this money yet public schools in Texas would put us to shame. I'm not even talking about Allen high school. Desoto and Cedar Hill both have good facilities and both are majority black schools.
  7. I know for me and I wasn't in attendance but the soul bowl game with Northwestern and Jackson had 47,000 at the Orange Bowl. This game was a playoff game and took place in 1998 and the attention crowd were people from both schools. Since the 1998 soul bowl game and maybe I'm wrong and just speaking for Miami, but there hasn't been a game since with that type of attendance.
  8. In Texas people show up and support. Alumni, students, community and so fourth but with Florida I don't understand. On a regular in Texas people come out for games not necessarily playoffs, but with Florida it seems like unless it's rival people don't show.
  9. All ways been the closer schools to bring cowards. Lake Brantley, Boone, Apopka, Dr. Phillips and Seminole out of the Orlando area. I'm surprised 7A wasn't bigger with Plant being from Tampa not that far away either. Miami schools always bring crowds and Pahokee brought a lot for a small school shoot damn near whole city of Pahokee showed up.
  10. @Big Blue So you're saying only 800 hundred people showed up for Baker.
  11. Dr. Phillips 10 Southridge 0 Halftime
  12. 954 gator You got everybody the only one you missed was Ribault.
  13. I'm sorry but Lake Gibson doesn't have a shot period. Yeah anything can happen which is why you play 4 quarters, but the talent roster from top to bottom on both sides isn't comparable at all. Carol City on defense is fire I mean that defense is clicking on all cylinders and when the offense picks up its a rap. Carol City has played IMG Academy, Oxbridge Academy, Lakeland, Southridge, Central, Northwestern twice and a so called good Mainland squad. When you look at Lake Gibson who have they played or what was there signature win on the season.
  14. Yeah I don't think Pahokee can beat any of these schools. Miami Central Northwestern Carol City Norland Southridge Columbus Booker T. Washington St. Thomas American Heritage (Plantation) Apopka Dwyer Dr. Phillips Plant Mainland
  15. Muckboy561 Yes you're right
  16. The reason I chose Jackson is the alumni. In the soul bowl 2 game against rival Northwestern, Jackson came in 12-1 and Northwestern 13-0. Jackson lost ending there season at 12-2 and the next day the head coach was fired. Present day well they haven't made the playoffs but every year it seems like there's a new coach. I wouldn't be surprised if Bernice is gone next season completing a 3-7 record. Now I know Jackson isn't Central, Northwestern or Booker T. Washington but the expectations is on high at Jackson. The generals want to win fast and now. Another thing is the demographics has changed. Jackson once a overwhelming majority black school and then mixed is now 70% Hispanic and 30% Black which plays a factor into winning because of talent wise alumni don't understand that.
  17. Havoc_376 that can't be the case because 8A is 2300 and up and Mainland isn't even at 2000.
  18. Personally I think numbers shouldn't matter with certain schools because depending on who it is can play with just about anybody. You take Booker T. Washington and Cocoa for examples. Both of these schools are in 4A, however moving them up a classification I think wouldn't hurt them at all because they would win and some might say American Heritage but remember Booker T. Washington beat the breaks off them in the preseason game. Another thing I need to add in is rival schools. Miami Central is a good example. Central could move up but the problem with that is scheduling. 7A district 16 has 9 schools so if you're Central who's the last game Northwestern, Carol City, Booker T. Washington or OOS game and then 8A. 8A district 13 has 6 schools which again if you're Central you schedule Northwestern, Carol City and Booker T. Washington which leads one open spot. Do you schedule OOS, in state game or cupcake game. I guess what I'm trying to say is I don't see why Mainland is moving up to 8A.
  19. Who wins 8A any thoughts.
