  1. Kids WANT to go to IMG. They don’t kick down doors asking for recruits.
  2. Certainly interesting to watch IMG play and I have nothing against them. I have been on that campus a few times and their facilities are beyond compare. They really accommodate their fans at home games with Restaurant-like food, beverages, a Sonic, and even a bookstore. If you’ve never been to one of their home games, do yourself a favor.
  3. IMG might not be a TRUE Florida team but you still have to root for them when they play outta state opponents...
  4. Do you know if they are they staying at a hotel in Fort Lauderdale? That’s quite a trip from Buccholz to STA...

  6. I still think the game is going to be somewhat close, but STA is just so disciplined and strong up front that I think they will wear the bobcats out by the 3rd quarter. I hope I'm wrong, because ifs ands and buts never won any wars but that’s the way it looks on paper.
  7. Yeah, it’s all just banter and wishful thinking. STA 45 Buccholz 10
  8. Like I said on scorestream, if Buchholz has the greatest game plan ever created they MAY be able to pull the upset. I’m being a touch hyperbolic of course but it’s going to be very difficult and STA’s fans are some of the most brutal you will ever meet. Aquinas hasn’t lost a home playoff game since 2003 when they played Edison in the 5A state finals. They are oozing with talent from top to bottom and have home-run hitters up and down the field on offense. Now I’m not taking anything away from the Bobcats, because they have some really solid wins over Nease, Bartram Trail, and Dunnelon. But a few mistakes in the first half means the score will be 28-0 before you can even blink. Going to be very very tough. Good luck!
  9. You are correct, because that is the most ridiculous statement regarding HS football I have ever heard. STA isn't "A big deal?" The hands-down best and most storied football program in the country isn't a "big deal?" Give me a break.
  10. Absolutely 0 chance Jesuit loses by anything more than 10. They have the physicality and discipline to beat the Bulls and I fully expect them to win the ballgame. Tigers by 3.
  11. Breaking with the trend, I think Tampa Bay Tech is going to defeat Lake Gibson. They’re playing at home and have a good passing scheme out of that gun formation to help them move the ball against Gibson, especially with that disciplined front four they have. TBT loves the power run and isn’t afraid to take shots off play-action, so if they can manage to force Gibson into playing Cover 1 or at least shading their coverage underneath they will be able to move the ball effectively through the air and keep the chains moving. Defensively Tampa Bay Tech will need to stand in the muck and prevent Gibson from doing what they like to do: running the ball. Offensively these two teams’ schemes are not alike but similar and that may actually assist the Titans in their game preparation as they’ve seen this offense before. Gibson will need to find a way to move the ball through the air because if they can’t, they’re going to be in trouble. All in all this should be a great game, possibly the most competitive one in the Florida State Semis this year as well. Good luck to both teams.
  12. Cocoa is a very tough, scrappy football team with a lot of heart. I met their Coach, Ryan Schneider in 2019. Really awesome guy who is dedicated to the game and his craft. He has those kids playing at a high level. I don’t think many teams are dying to meet the Tigers in the playoffs!
  13. Big urban schools are always going to poach from smaller schools with less resources. It’s unfortunate but I understand why it happens and there’s not much that can be done to stop it at a local level. As far as scheduling, it would behoove any team that expects to make a deep playoff run to schedule some tough quality opponents. Don’t have to break your back playing the IMG’s and STA’s of the world but playing some tough area opponents (i.e, Cardinal Gibbons, American Heritage, Central,) would certainly help as you get an understanding of the physicality and power of other teams. Beating up on local garbage isn’t going to prepare you for an opponent like STA or AHP in the playoffs. Have to challenge yourself in order to bring your play to the next level.
  14. Columbus will win the game if Venice looks past them, which I don’t expect them to do. On any given Friday any outcome could happen so don’t count the Explorers out by any means. If you are making the long trip north to Venice, welcome, and I wish you safe travels along the way. It’s going to be a good, close game to the bitter end. Go Indians, though!
  15. What do you think of Apopka vs TC? Do you think The Titans running attack will be too much for the Darters to overcome?
  16. Any given Sunday... (Or Friday, in this case.)
  17. Any given Sunday... (Or Friday, in this case.)
  18. I think Madison County could hang with STA on a good day, maybe even come within 70 points!
  19. Well, regarding Jesuit, I believe they hold the necessary faculties to defeat Northwestern although the game will be a good test for The Tigers. Jesuit has been so up and down in recent years that it’s hard to obtain a fair gauge by which to measure them. If they come out strong in this game and score first, they could put themselves in good position to win the ballgame and set the tone for the game, if nothing else. I’m intrigued by that game a lot, I tell you. Good luck to the Tigers. Hope they kick Northwestern’s Butts!
  20. I wouldn't be surprised if Columbus won the ball game but you all are NOT holding us to only 7 points. You will need at least 28 to defeat Venice and your defense will need to stop the run at every turn because Peacock loves the read-option/ play action fakes. Good luck to the Explorers.
  21. I’m not looking past them towards Treasure Coast or Apopka, that’s all I will tell you. South Florida teams have always given Venice trouble, even at home (i.e, Cardinal Gibbons and STA.) I think Columbus will give Venice their first tough game of the playoffs albeit in the state semi’s.
