    Same with Hillsborough.   Lots of district games that have to be played.   And then the teams are going to turn around and play again Friday night.   I guess it's not all that different than the pro teams that play on Sunday and then have to play again on Thursday night. 

    Difference is that the pros get paid :)

    For any of you who may be in Ian's ever-changing path, Godspeed.   Be safe and take care of your families.  

    Thank you. You take care, too.  This storm could be one for the ages.

    Central 14 Dillard 7 halftime 

    Looks like this game should've been played yesterday. Rain is coming down heavy

    Darn, Dillard melted down in the second half. Weather may have been a factor, but to fall apart like that is not good with STA coming up soon.

    Here are teams that probably will go nowhere(few exceptions), & are having a great season. All unbeaten! Most the teams are small schools with simply their local talent!

    Williston. Tohopekaliga. Northview. Interlachen. Frostproof. Chipley. Bradford. Deltona. Bay. 
    of course there are other unbeaten! These kids & coaches are putting in the hard work, just like Chaminade, Central etc…..

    You can add second year football school, Horizon, to that list. They are unbeaten, too, and should go either 7-3 or 8-2 in the regular season.

    FHSAA has to do something about transfers.  It really is killing any chances for competitive balance.

    Their hands are tied. When you have the ability to pretty much enroll wherever you want, what can they do?

  6. Although I agree that SFA was penalized by bad calls, I have seen worse over the time I have watched the game here in Florida. The worst calls, obviously, was the drive where the ball was first stripped but the player was called down and on the subsequent play where the tight end did not have possession when the ball crossed the line. 

    SFA was clearly better than Venice and should have won by about an additional 14 points if not for questionable calls.

    that last part got me lol hahaha. I hope that the game is played it sounds like your kowboys could be very special by season end. 

    Very very detailed analysis tho of both Lakeland and Osceola when it comes to your guys history I would’ve never known. Should be a great game. 

    He's a Lakeland supporter, not a Kowboy. 

    If the game is played (I hope it is), Lakeland is the favorite. However, I would be very surprised if they put a running clock on Osceola, a team with a very strong defense. I believe Lakeland is rightly the favorite, but I don't expect the final margin in the game to be by more than 14 regardless of who wins it.

    Apopka is not the fifth to best team at all. Sorry Darter but you have at least two to three losses coming. Your d is awesome but your offense is lousy and has zero chance against Edgewater or Seminole. Looks like a jv team . What happened darter to the offense .

    The Offense is a work in progress. We have a shot at Edgewater. We have very little chance against Seminole. Check with me at the end of the season. The team may or may not be significantly better.

    I think Lincoln vs Bartram and Lake Minneola vs Mainland (both this week) should help correct a few things or at least justify the placement


    I was impressed with Winter Park over Boone the way they did but I want to see a little more first because with their schedule if they start struggling with the weaker teams I have to drop them quickly

    Winter Park's biggest problem from a ranking standpoint is strength of schedule. North Gwinnet was supposed to rectify that. However, it turns out they are down this year. Now I don't think WP knew that when they scheduled the game, but it is what it is. I think they run the table and finish 10-0 in the regular season. Then we will see whether they are a contender or they just took advantage of a weak schedule. They do have a quick score offense that is difficult to stop. 

    Regarding Lincoln, Mainland, Lake Minneola and Bartram Trail, this Friday will tell us a lot. 

  10. I think your rankings are good, overall. I would make a few changes. But that is to be expected, as individuals tend to have differences of opinion. I do agree that Seminole is the top team in Orlando Metro until results(if they do) indicate otherwise. 

    A couple examples. I think you are underestimating Lincoln. I think you are overestimating Mainland, I think Winter Park should be in the top 50, for now, probably in the bottom 5 top 50 teams. I also Lake Minneola should be ranked in the bottom of the top 10 in their class, and at least on the bubble in the top 50, if not at the bottom of the top 50 itself. They will likely beat Mainland this Friday. This is not a wish on my part, as I am rooting for Mainland to win the game. However, having watched film of both teams, I am leaning Lake Minneola.

    Notice how crib boy keeps ignoring the biggest point I made because he can't debate it 


    How is MNW gonna win a championship giving up 42 points 


    I am curious how low the percentage is of teams winning in the playoffs or state finals while giving up 40+


    I'm betting it's probably 1-2% at most

    What's most important is consistency. There have been teams, probably more than 1 to 2% that have won state titles in Florida after giving up 40+ points in one game, especially if it's early in the season. However, very few teams have won a state title in Florida if the average number of points per game for the season including the playoffs exceeds 25. More than 90% have given up an average of 19 points or less.

    Winter Park was supposed to play at WO in the KOC. Like many football fans throughout the Orlando area that night, we sat in our cars for 2 hours watching the lightning show before the game was cancelled. 

    Same thing happened with the Osceola/Apopka KOC. Funny thing is that two hours before game time it was bright and sunny with not a cloud in the sky.

    He was showing a lot of improvement as a dual threat QB; it will be a major loss for West Orange.

    Yes he is a major loss. I don't know how good the backup is, but he gave Apopka's defense fits particularly in the first half. He could be the difference between a relatively deep playoff run for WO and a quick exit if they make the playoffs.

    What west orange & edgewater ? On paper edgewater should and most likely win by DD , but atleast once a week I like to pick the underdog. 

    like last week everyone picked vanguard and I picked niceville and the eagles won 

    Told ya. West Orange is a good team but they have some significant weaknesses. They actually kept the game closer than I thought they would.
