  1. I was wrong on the Columbia / Lee. Seems like it will potentially be a rematch in the playoffs, especially with the issues that Bartram is having on defense.
  2. I havent decided yet, but im more interested in Fletcher/Raines.
  3. I wont be unfortunately. I'd like to be there to see it. There are other good games in the area that are a little closer.
  4. I think Lee wins in a close, relatively low scoring game 20-14.
  5. Robert E. Lee High Generals. 2018 District Champs 2018 Region Champs
  6. If I had to create a list of the top teams in NE FL it would be: 1. Lee 2. Raines 3. St. Augustine 4. Trinity 5. Columbia 6. Fleming Island 7. Sandalwood 8. Fletcher 9. Bartram Trail 10. Baker County 11. Clay 12. Ponte Vedra 13. Mandarin 14. First Coast 15. Bolles HM: Bishop Kenny, Oakleaf, Ed White
  7. He was the starter at Terry Parker the last 2 seasons. Good player on a bad team.
  8. Both, he is not as good of a scrambler as Jones, but he is a better passer. Jones was a dynamic player, but he is just as good. I'd encourage you to watch his highlights if you think otherwise.
  9. Lee will be good again. The transfer QB they played with this Spring is as good as Jones, possibly better.
  10. I don't think UC could beat any of the top 10 teams in NE FL, but they are very likely to win state in their class.
  11. Sandalwood will likely be similar to last season. They don't have the same top level recruits this year, but from everything i've seen, they will be similar to or maybe better than last season's team. From everything i'm hearing, Lee is the best team in the area. I didn't get a chance to see them in the Spring. Lee, Raines, Sandalwood, Bolles, Bartram Trail, St. Augustine, Trinity, Ribault are the top teams in the area. I don't know what order they'll finish in, but they are they teams I would definitely put in a pre-season list. Some people throw Columbia in with NE FL since they are part of the Times Union coverage area, but they are definitely in the mix too if you count them as part of the area. Fletcher, Baker County, Oakleaf, Ponte Vedra, Clay, University Christian probably make up the very top of the next tier.
  12. I'll let you know my opinion closer to Spring, there's still some player movement going on in Jax. If i had to go with right now, i'd say Raines, Lee, Bolles, Trinity, Sandalwood, Ribault are the top teams right now.
  13. True, but what are the consequences for a non coach? Is it fair to fine a school for what a minor does? Can you punish a player for trying to get a friend to come to the same school as him? What can you do to little Johnny's uncle who is trying to find some receivers for his nephew, who is the new qb at school Z to throw to.
  14. It seems pretty normal to me for players to recruit for their teams. I don't know if there's anything you can do about it. If it was a coach that sent that message, which it doesn't appear to be, it is obviously wrong to do so. I don't think there is a way to control players and parents recruiting for your school, and those are the avenues most coaches who recruit will go through. Maybe a coach can't entice little johnny to come to school "B", but your players, or parents or friends of the program can without penalty.
  15. For some reason, everyone is an expert on coaching football. The Pollard coached teams i've seen have always been physical and disciplined.
  16. No, I don't think I will make the drive, but It should be a good game. I'm going to find a closer matchup to check out.
  17. I initially thought Columbia would win this matchup just a few weeks ago, but Lee has been very impressive. I think Lee wins this one is a close game, something like 35-28. They are much improved over last years team. Columbia isn't quite the same as last year. Missing those explosive WR's really seems to be hurting Columbia's offense. I think Columbia still makes it to the playoffs, but this time as a runner up.
  18. Score was close, Sandalwood controlled the game throughout. Probably had 350 rushing, had some penalties though, 2 TDs were taken off the board because of those penalties. Columbia's offense looked good on the first drive, mostly on the ground. They didn't get much going in the passing game all night, maybe 2 or 3 passes completed to WRs, all others were swing passes to the RB out the backfield. Columbia will win their district, and probably a playoff game or two. Sandalwood was big and physical offensively. Could not get much going through the Air
  19. I don't think you could do it off roster size. That number is too easy to manipulate. Plus every school is a little different. There are some schools that make cuts, or limit their roster sizes, while others allow anyone who wants to be on the team to play.
  20. That's how it should be. You should not be able to move up or down. You play where you are assigned. I think there would be very few teams that would choose to opt out if given the hard stance. If you don't like where the figures put you, then play an independent schedule.
  21. I agree, that if you are the #1 seed, you should host. I think if you have the best record, or top seed, you've earned the right to host throughout the playoffs.
  22. I think the only fair solution would be to make bigger districts with more teams getting in from each district. I believe it was agreed on, then eventually shot down because of travel a few years ago. I don't like the point system that is proposed. Like others have said, it is too complicated. I think a simple fix would be to balance the districts, or cut the amount of districts in half, and allow 4 teams from each district to get in. I prefer a system that's very straight forward, I don't trust the point system completely. There's a chance that it works, but there needs to be some sort of checks to make sure there is a clear cut path to the playoffs, not something that is dependent on so many factors. If they want to still allow district champions to get in, and create some sort of point system for everyone else who did not win their district, that would be fair to me. With that, I know before the season what we need to do to get in the playoffs, which would be to win the district. If you don't do so, then you are at the mercy of this point system.
  23. I plan on seeing that one. I'm going to check out Raines/Trinity Christian on the 19th and Sandalwood/Columbia on the 20th. Both should be good games.
  24. @columbiahighfan How did the game go. Any standout players you noticed. I'm curious to see how they will do this Spring. They are my favorites to win their district this year.
