    ..very interesting situation.  Many of these are programs that have struggled over the years to get traction and gotten slaughtered regularly...no fun.  There are a LOT of such schools and that number is likely to grow big-time in future years as more schools open.  

    Should we just let these schools cull themselves, or build into the current system a mechanism to allow them to play in the classes against programs at a similar level of maturity, ie a relegation system?  

    IMO, this is the biggest issue we face today in FL hs football...much bigger than transfers or playoff systems..because this issue impacts so many teams.  The rich are getting richer, and the poor are getting poorer.  And it is clearly getting worse.  Anyone watching football over the past 25 years can see it clearly.  

    Allowing teams to go off and their do their own thing..I can see that leading to a real mess in the future.  As challenging as it might be to design such a system, I think we have to start thinking outside the box in terms of solutions if we want to keep hs football looking anything like what it has in the past.  

    There is no reason for Umatilla to go Independent, they won their District in 2014.  They would be in 4A hence they wouldn't be in a District and get to make their schedule regardless. 

    Warner could go to the SSAC.  The rest of those teams would be in a District and going Independent gives them control of their schedule.

  2. The issue at the school I coach at is: we are in a rural, very poor, drug ridden area. Our roster stays in the mid twenties and has been since I played there in the 1990s. Since we have 800+ students, we cannot be in the 1A division, instead we are 4A. There has to be a way we can be in the 1A classification. It's not like we are going dominate that class, Trenton kicked our butts a few years ago in a spring game.

  3. Proposed Eligibility HB 7137:  Maintains a grade point average of 2.0 or above on a 4.0 scale, or its equivalent, in the previous semester or a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or above on a 4.0 scale.


    Current Rule: A high school student must have a cumulative 2.0 grade point average on a 4.0 unweighted scale, or its equivalent, at the conclusion of each semester to be academically eligible during the next semester

  4. Private schools should not be competing with small public schools.  Look at Bolles.  Their reported enrollment is 787.  Their Varsity has 62 players on it.  The only way to get those numbers is to recruit, which I don't have a problem with.  I have a huge probelm with having to compete with them.  Our entire football program has 60 boys and we have 100 more students than them.
