  1. Thanks for the great work and longevity!
  2. That was me, lol. Came back 5 minutes later thinking the issue would be resolved. Came back 10 minutes later thinking, the problem must be on my end. I've got to be strong, must find something else to do. What else can I do? I know!!! Let me clear my browser cache. That'll certainly do the trick. Noooooooooo!!!!!!! What else can I do! I know. Let me try a different device. Nooooooooooo!!!!! I'll try one more time before I go to sleep.... No mas. Didn't shed a tear but I felt funny.
  3. Safety first, says DarterBlue. After a long day, He'd rather face the hazards of driving in Florida versus the wrath of the wife. I understand completely. Safety First!!!
  4. I'll believe it when I see it. This game is LSU's to lose.
  5. I believe this Edgewater team has a great opportunity to fly under the radar and shock the nation. It won't be easy but it's not impossible. One thing about STA is once they get off their game, it a lot easier to step on their necks. I guess that applies to anyone though, LOL.
  6. I'll go out on a limb and pick Edgewater by 6.
  7. Yeah but they do lose. No one is invincible.
  8. Ironically, Palm Beach still has more public than private titles unlike Duval and Broward.
  9. IF UGA wins, lol. Outside of high school, Georgia sports in general tend to fold under pressure.
  10. In 2004, 11 of the Dade teams occupied 3 region 3 slots (the remaining 5 were Broward) and all of region 4. That's huge! That set up alone meant that at least 1 Dade school was guaranteed a 4th round appearance. In 2004, there were two. That's not the only year that scenario came into play but that's a good example of numbers helping the odds of survival.
  11. Sorry about that. The change has been made. Can’t believe I missed that.
  12. Additional classes has made it easier. No county in Florida has the sheer amount of schools with the level of depth that can compete in different classes. Dade (yes I know it’s Miami-Dade but I’m old school) has had a great amount of schools reach title games over the decades but it was not an almost guaranteed appearance like it is today. There was a 14-year period between ‘77 and ‘91 when Dade didn’t win away titles as there were only 4-5 classes and there was more parity. Today, we have twice that number of classes and unless you have enough good teams in multiple classes, by numbers alone, it would be damn near impossible for Dade not to get a team in the title game. If you look at Florida most populous counties, there’s almost a direct correlation between population rank and rank in titles. That’s not always constant as some counties punch higher and others, not so much. Population Titles Miami-Dade 38.5 Broward 27 Palm Beach 30 Hillsborough 11 Orange 6.5 Pinellas 0 Duval 31 Lee 0 Polk 17 Brevard 14 21. Escambia 12 22. Leon 21 Leon County has won more titles than 62 of Florida’s 67 counties despite being the 22nd largest Florida county. Escambia makes Hillsborough, Orange, Lee & Pinellas counties look bad in terms of raw numbers and they have a chance to add another title this year. Orange also has 3 chances to increase their title counts.
  13. I’m pulling for Edgewater. It will be a tall task but nothing is impossible. Shock the nation with this victory.
  14. How it wish it were Polk. The most we've gotten is 3 teams in the finals at the same time. 1996 - Lakeland, Bartow, Frostproof 1999 - Lakeland, Frostproof, Ft. Meade 2004 - Lakeland, Lake Gibson, Ft Meade 2005 - Lakeland, Evangel, Ft Meade
  15. LOL! It's too bad Hillsborough County won't be going East on I-4, North on I-75 and West on I-10. I really expected HC to get one school to the ship. SMH...
  16. Yikes!!! The Bay Area took an "L" like a MF'r...
  17. Aside from the Blountstown/Madison matchup, the Finals are Florida vs South Florida, LMAO! I-10 starting with Escambia, Leon and ending with DUUUUVAAAAALLL. I-4 corridor starting with Polk and ending with Orange. Dade - 5 Orange - 3 Broward - 2 Calhoun - 1 Duval - 1 Escambia - 1 Leon - 1 Madison - 1 Polk - 1 8A Dade vs Orange 7A Broward vs Orange 6A Dade vs Escambia 5A Dade vs Orange 4A Dade vs Duval 3A Broward vs Leon 2A Dade vs Polk 1A Calhoun vs Madison
