  1. Thanks
    Jags904 got a reaction from DarterBlue2 in Jacksonville Area Question   
    The school is becoming an IB/magnet school. Therefore, they are reducing the size of the school and kids who can’t make the grades are being forced to go elsewhere. 
    I have already seen the student demographics change.

    Really? That’d be interesting. Well Bolles and TCA will be 3A by enrollment then.

    Think about 3A for instance:
    Bolles, Cardinal Gibbons, Cocoa, Jesuit, and Carol City. All teams that even on down years would run roughshod over 3A now.

    No need to bring up that incident. He has comeback from a huge mistake and is going to get a masters. Good for him.

    Jags904 got a reaction from ColumbiaHighFan2017class in So something i noticed with 7a and 8a champs   
    I think the two biggest factors are the district strength & team experience. If you’ve got a tough district, then why not play a tough team and then schedule the rest easy? If you’ve got an easy district, then you should schedule 3-4 tough teams. Same goes with an experienced vs inexperienced team.

    The real problem is we have so many transplants who aren’t from here. They aren’t bought into their community. 
    My college roommate/teammate was from western PA. He was from a very football rich town and that they filled the opposing side bleachers and had standing room only for regular season away games. You had to buy tickets early for playoff games (home or away). Then the town took a crap ton of charter buses for the state title game in addition to those who drove. Why? Because it was a true community. They knew each others’ kids, parents, uncles & aunts, and grandparents in one way or another.

    Jags904 got a reaction from KeemD321 in Dan from Daytona what's your opinion on the cocoa versus Raines game   
    This Raines team is not as good as last years. I do believe that they should beat Cocoa tho

    I’ve also had played golf/had dinner with Adrian Peterson & John Lynch. Tebow as well. 
    Lynch is an incredible golfer...the other two? Not so much. The one sport I am certainly better than them at.

    Legalization of the good old weed may be the solution. Parents of kids can be offered some rural farm land for cultivation as an inducement to country living! Green Acres is tha place to be ... !

    Jags904 reacted to DarterBlue2 in Apopka Coach on the Move?   
    Any true fan of Apopka football is appreciative of what he has done with the program. Before RD, Apopka was a difficult Central Florida team to play. He upped the ante and made the program a state threat. 
    Should Mr. Darlington depart, I wish him success in Alabama. He certainly gave me many memorable moments while he has coached the Blue Darters.

    Duval and Clay. Still have friends throughout the area in Duval, Clay, St Johns, and Nassau. 
    There was heavy transfers but this has caused an almost epidemic. There is a lawlessness in Duval where you never seem to know whose going where and why they are going there.

    That is exactly what i keep trying to explain to people 
     
    People think all private schools are loading up d1 players and stealing opportunities from publics when in reality it's a select few and the majority of the privates don't come close to competing with the publics

    I’ll go with same score as last time Bolles vs TCA played. Competitive first half but overwhelming second half. 
    I think Northeast Florida has legit shot at 3 titles: UC, Raines, and TCA. 4 for those who consider Lake City in that.

    And I’m certainly not saying all 1a teams complain about it (I’ve got friends from Madison Co and Pahokee who certainly say otherwise) but I’ve heard some things that didn’t sit well with me. 
    I think the average 1a team is considerably better than the average 2a team & the same with the top teams.

    Columbia by 50. Only one Bolles player starts on Columbia’s team. 
    Mandarin is the better team. More talented, bigger, and Ramsey is a dang good coach. I just don’t know if they’re planning on sitting guys or not

    Jags904 got a reaction from ColumbiaHighFan2017class in IMG needs to play better teams   
    1) Sense of pride. When you’re from a small town and you grew up going to HS football games, guess what? Support is going to be much higher than if you’re from Tampa and you have a 10,000 other options on a Friday night. 
    2) In stable communities you tend to have feeder programs that build directly up to the HS and so you have 10-15 new freshman each year in all sports who have experience doing the sport. Of course you’re going to be better than most.
    3) As a guy who has seen firsthand the growth of Fleming Island athletics (I’ve lived there since 1996, well before it was opened), you need parental support, administrative support, and hard work to win. It is certainly much easier there than in inner city schools.
