  1. Which Teams Will Get Left out of the Playoffs?

    .....This is why the UCF disrespect claim runs hollow with me. As you stated, both Miami and FSU hit the road against national powers , without a reciprocal home rematch, just for the exposure and the opportunity to be seen and respected. I remember (I think that is) Bowden's Nole's in an early season game at the Big House (Michigan) while whipping that ass on a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon. That was a statement game for FSU. Michigan never did come south for a rematch
  2. Which Teams Will Get Left out of the Playoffs?

    Nice truthful recap, but I too lived those years and remember them fondly. I worked with QB Kenny McMillians father in the late 1970's. Jim Kelly succeeded/replaced him. A high school teammate (Benny Gadson) was on the roster for a minute. I remember the Wally Woodum (sp) Jimmy Jordan days in Tally. My cousin was at FSU from 1972-79 (law degree). Most of that time Leon High and the FAMU Rattlers brand of football surpassed the 'Noles. I did the drive and party many a weekend. The Gator's recruited in the south. Miami recruited the nation. FSU, to a lesser degree, but still much more then UF. Or just maybe that's how my swiftly fading mind remember's it.
  3. Which Teams Will Get Left out of the Playoffs?

    Of the long time relevant Florida football teams the Gator's were the last of the big three to recruit out of state and nationwide. Miami had Rb's Foreman and Bennett in the 1970's, and FSU followed suit in the '80s. The 'Canes and 'Noles have been playing nationwide powers AWAY for decades. The Gate's: Kentucky in Lexington every two years was their big long distant road trip. The regional Gator's have aways been third in state with me. And that's the biased truth.
  4. Which Teams Will Get Left out of the Playoffs?

    Florida very rarely has top notch QB's, OL, and DL (with the exception of outside speed rushers). At DB, WR, and RB we're as good as any in the country. Everybody has nasty LB's.
  5. Which Teams Will Get Left out of the Playoffs?

    Didn't Carol City lose it's Head Coach in mid August to a rebirth at Florida Memorial (College) ? That could have a bearing on their inconsistency. Also Ice Harris of BTW went their too (at that late date).
  6. Which Teams Will Get Left out of the Playoffs?

    Oct 18, Mainland at NSB for district title. Coach Wilk doesn't have the horses he had at Cocoa. It shouldn't be close.....if not heads should roll.
  7. Teams with Bad Records Who Could Make the Playoffs?

    My bad, for not explaining myself. I wasn't questioning the current playoff formula (although I agree the format needs tweaking at the least). Just the fact that in an extremely weak district, Mainland (my heart and soul) still earns a top four position in a region with a very poor season under way. Only Lakeland High, of all public Florida high schools, has been to the FHSAA playoffs in more consecutive current seasons. Lakeland 26 yrs, Mainland 25 yrs in a row. My call for "change" was sadly in house , not state wide....Buc Forever
  8. Teams with Bad Records Who Could Make the Playoffs?

    A 5-4 or 4-5 Mainland will be a #4 seed. Time for some changes.....hurtfully, just saying
  9. Osceola vs, Cocoa

    Why do you continue to talk out of your ass ? First Mainland was scared to play in the Freedom Bowl and now Cocoa, after ALL THE YEARS OF PLAYING EVERYBODY ON THE ROAD, they might be scared too. What's with you man ? Any Florida team that loses to an out of state team is trash to you and a personal embarrassment and humiliation. Stop talking so much trash on the national board and let theses Florida teams travel and enjoy the experience of a lifetime, WIN or LOSE !!!
  10. Florida's 5 Greatest WR's Ever - Name Them

    Wes Chandler, NSB Michael Irvin, STA
  11. East Central Florida Top 19 (UPDATED)

    All true. For a long time Daytona Mainland played in the Metro Conference with all the big Orlando schools. Most of them only 50-60 miles away. With the growing bedroom communities springing up to the east of downtown coinciding with the Disney explosion, these closer new schools replaced some of the old rivals. Up till a decade or two ago the Orlando Sentinel was still selling thousands of daily newspapers on the Volusia county side of the St John's River bridge (30 miles from Daytona).
  12. Old School FSU Football Documentary - Finding a Way

    Tough three loss season for the 'Noles, but who wouldn't want to play and give their all for Coach Bowden. Unlike the mostly stoic coaches of today, this guy's motor was always full speed ahead with positive thinking and heart felt encouragement for his boys. That was a special coach and leader there. They don't coming along everyday like him. Thanks OldSchool, watched the whole program.

  14. Who Are These FL HS & Gator Legends? Neal Anderson & John L Williams

    Emmitt Smith #22 , Pensacola Woodham, #27 Tony Green ? Off the top of my fading head...wild guesses. Edit: when in doubt, read the clues and don't just look at the pictures
