  2. 7A Reclass Summary of Changes

    You mean between Armwood and Kathleen, right? LOL
  3. Opinion Circle: College Football Playoff expansion??

    The regular season should only be a catalyst for conference play enroute the conference championship and possibly rivalry games, nothing more. We shouldn’t have conference champs play in the dookie bowl just for the sake of being in a bowl game. Conference championships are already diminished if you’re not in the right conference.
  4. Opinion Circle: College Football Playoff expansion??

    It should expand to 16 teams and it should’ve expanded a long time ago. The ONLY equitable process for a true playoff system should remove as much opinion away from the game as possible. Every conference champion should have a seat at the table without question. Reduce the number of regular season games to accommodate an extended playoff schedule. Otherwise, why play
  5. Lakeland, WHAT!!! #7

    Shameful indeed, lol. Better late than never. I knew I liked you.
  6. Lakeland, WHAT!!! #7

    This may not have been Lakeland’s most vaunted team but they never gave up. The mountain was high but dammit not impossible to climb. Damn the naysayers, the hell with the critics. Always underestimated, never intimidated. DREADNAUGHT NATION!!!!!!!! L-TOWN, POLK COUNTY!!!!! Congratulations to the nationally ranked St Thomas Raiders on a great season.
  7. State Finals Attendance

    I would too now that both programs are up. Maybe both programs coul;d end up in the same district again.
  8. State Finals Attendance

    My mother in-law graduated from Da West and she and some classmates drove up to the game in their 70’s. The community takes it seriously.
  9. Mandarin Situation Is Disappointing

    Thank you. Couldn’t have stated it any better myself and it’s been happening for a long time.
  10. Mandarin Situation Is Disappointing

    Wait for it....
  11. Lakeland vs STA Title game part VI

    What can I say? This will be the 6th time the Naughts and Raiders have met in the finals in two different classes and 8th overall dating back to 1996. Combined, both teams have appeared in the finals 24 times with 16 state titles and 2 national titles a piece. Forget the history between these two programs. Who takes it?
  12. Check mark for Lakeland
  13. Lakeland, WHAT!!! #7

    LOL, I was like “not this $h!t again”
  14. Most famous sports athlete you ever met in person?

    LOL, okay. That’s when my sister went. You probably knew her or at least her knuckled-headed girlfriends.
  15. Teams from Adjacent Counties Playing Each other for State Titles

    2003 4A Armwood vs Lake Gibson as well.
  16. Most famous sports athlete you ever met in person?

    Yes, spinoff. Do you remember Foo (Chris Anthony) or Kwame King ring a bell? Kwame was older and graduated with Ray. Chris graduated from LG and went to Fam with me from ‘94-‘99. We go all the way back to the defunct John F Cox on Memorial blvd.
  17. Florida's 100 Newest Schools Struggle Again This Season

    Maps don’t lie, LOL. Attached is what was supposed to happen immediately north of Tenoroc. To date, the only plans that have taken shape are Florida Polytechnic and land acquisition for a new hospital.
  18. Florida's 100 Newest Schools Struggle Again This Season

    Tenoroc was anticipated to have a larger student body due to the Florida housing boom that eventually went bust. Of all the newer schools constructed in Polk County, Tenoroc is the most isolated in terms or nearby population. Although technically in Lakeland and a stone’s throw from Auburndale, there is literally nothing around it. If the Polytechnic area matures and planned developments take shape, Tenoroc will mostly likely see a bump in population. However until that time, the Titan program will be at the whim of established neighborhoods miles away to the east and west. I always felt like the high school in that area was built too soon. The county should’ve started in Southwest Lakeland.
  19. Florida's 100 Newest Schools Struggle Again This Season

    Is it really a surprise? Two words: Sprawl Demographics I think it would be interesting to see how these newer schools have affected programs they were meant to relieve. For example, looking at Polk County below are the new schools and the schools in which they drew their population from. George Jenkins (1993) -> Lakeland, Lake Gibson, Kathleen Lake Region (1995) -> Winter Haven, Bartow Ridge (2005) -> Haines City Tenoroc (2008) -> Lakeland, Auburndale, Lake Gibson
  20. Most famous sports athlete you ever met in person?

    Ray Lewis. Aside from knowing through mutual friends in high school, I’ve seen him a couple of times throughout his UM years when he used to dance with Boyz of Poison (BoP) out of Lakeland and once after the Ravens’ super bowl win. I also see Fred Williamson on a somewhat regular basis here in Atlanta. He’s a cool ass guy and loves smoking cigars and hanging out at the Intercontinental in Buckhead.
  21. Lakeland vs STA Title game part VI

    I might have to fly down for this one. Another TD! Are you kidding me? Wow
  22. I hope you’re right. I work with a bunch of Orange County natives here in Atlanta and they swear this is their year. LOL
  23. FHSAA Playoff system is very flawed

    Thank you!
  24. Venice vs Bloomingdale predictions

    Is it really an upset if Venice wins? No team is invincible and history has proven that time and time again. Sooner or later, even the mightiest will fall.
  25. Special Congratulations to Bloomingdale & Fort Lauderdale

    Bloomingdale indeed. I remember at time when having B’dale on the schedule was a guaranteed win. They’ve come a long way and I hope that program continues to improve.
