  1. IMG @ St. Frances Academy

    You might as well try spitting in the desert and hoping grass will grow, as those odds would be better before Columbia Fan would ever understand how the state of Florida budget works in as far as allocation of tax revenue to generate tourism dollars versus revenue allocated for education.......................been there, tried that and it was a pointless endeavor in hindsight.
  2. Jax Tca 21 LEE 0 second quarter

    Lee has a problem with turnovers and its been key to the losses they've had this season, including the 21-12 loss last night..........ColumbiaFan's statement on beating Lee in the postseason "Its personal" causes me to be reminded of this song by Thrid eye blind......should Columbia HS once again find itself in a early exit position from the postseason this year...........
  3. Which Teams Will Get Left out of the Playoffs?

    Miami was independent during the 70's and actively sought out national powers in its attempt to give the program some sense of legitimacy nationally.....lets not forget this was the program that lost to FAMU in 1979...(16-13), in Schnellenberger's 1st year at Miami......to give you and idea where the program was at that point. Same can be said of FSU who prior to Bobby Bowden belonged to the Metro Conference which it joined in 1976......playing teams out of state was just part of what Bowden saw was a necessity to obtain some sense of nationally recognition.....I want to say say in fact it was the win over Nebraska in Norman that was the key stone win for the FSU program to establish the program on the national level.....where former Sarasota Sailor Paul Piurowski forced a fumble to preserve the win over Nebraska in the early 80's.......both schools eventually joined bigger conferences in the 90's, that at that point limited opportunities to schedule games against premier college programs......was why in part when FSU joinned the ACC, Gators joked about it being the "ALL Coast Clear" conference because the meat of FSU regular season schedule was made up of teams that at that point weren't premier programs on the football field. But in as far as recruiting, all three programs recruited beyond the borders of the state of Florida in the 60's, 70's, 80's etc........in fact Florida's 1st Heisman trophy winner isn't even from the state of Florida......think about that for a moment!
  4. Venice vs Cocoa

    Dont know anything really about Cocoa, but the loss to Riverview tells me all I need to know about this Venice team's lack of elite physicality on the line of scrimmage this year. You have a backup QB that couldn't start at Manatee or Plant City, but yet he's managed to do just that this year for Venice at different points this year. My guess is, if Dollacosta is the least bit still injured or Peacock worries about re-injuring him Friday night against Cocoa, Peacock saves him for next week against Manatee for the District Championship......because the Venice offense is limited big time with Overstreet at QB. Same with Taylor at RB, if he's still out Friday night.....Venice doesn't have a chance against Cocoa........I say neither plays because Peacock wants them healthy for next week against Manatee.....Cocoa 31 Venice 21
  5. Lakeland's final challenge @ Bloomingdale

    During the 80's and early 90's Manatee and Lakeland met on a fairly regular basis, and I cant recall one game where I felt the officiating was corrupt..............now if your talking about Lakeland having to later forfeit games, on multiple occasions.....that would be a subject that would have some merit to the charge...............

  7. Lakeland's final challenge @ Bloomingdale

    I always hated going to Plant City in the 80's when they were in Manatee's District, for the very same reason.....the home cooking was terrible..............particularly if the score was close.
  8. Which Teams Will Get Left out of the Playoffs?

    8A-R1 Orlando Evans lost 31-20 to Lake Mary 8A-R1 Deland beat West Port 44-7 (West Port is now 1-6, so this win not likely to help the Deland RPI much this coming week) 8A-R3 PB Central beat Forest Hill 41-21 (Good win as Forest Hill has a winning record) 8A-R-3 Monarch lost to Boca Raton 38-14 7A-R1 Buchholz lost to Fletcher 41-17 7A-R-3 Lakewood Ranch lost to Venice 49-6 5A-R4 Desoto County beat Labelle 28-10 (Labelle is now 2-5, so this win not likely to help Desoto County RPI much)
  9. Columbia vs Lee

    Guess that means a potential rise or fall in your poll?
  10. Which Teams Will Get Left out of the Playoffs?

    What you're doing is what I call classic "stirring the chit", with your method of presentation.............
  11. Which Teams Will Get Left out of the Playoffs?

    Evans wins have come against teams with a combined record of 8-21, 4 of those 8 wins came from one team "Oviedo", they have tuff district games the next 2 weeks which they potentially could lose both.........but would also help them with their over-all strength of schedule too if they win them. For them I say the next 4 weeks are key for them and qualifying for the playoffs.
  12. Which Teams Will Get Left out of the Playoffs?

    OldSchool You do realize that Lakewood Ranch hasn't played one team with a winning record, and the one game they had against a team with a .500 record, beat them 58-0.............................right? They play Venice this week, who will also beat them like a drum and you want to argue the virtues of them being potentially left out of the playoffs based on a record built up to this point on beating teams with a collective record of 3-24?
