  1. The suburban - metro idea was poor solution to real problem of imbalance between haves and have not due to recruiting. As I predicted. The same teams who already made it to the finals or semi finals in old system but lost will win the suburban titles. The same group of teams will win suburban every year just like the same will win metro with a few exceptions . Move teams up who dominate and put all Chester in one or two classes and let non cheater play each other in others. . Real solution to problem
  2. Congrats to Apopka. Really nice. Win and you are district champs and get home games throughout regional final probably. You might have a tougher time beating Seminole next time though when their starting qb is in. Still great win though.
  3. I was showing how horrible maxpreps rankings are when they count margin of victory. If you end up with a 4-5 team at number 9 in 4m and another 5-4 team who did not not beat anybody in top 16. Then something is wrong with your ranking formula. The one team lost 37-7 a week ago and rose three spots in the state. SOS is weighted wayyyyy too heavy in maxpreps. Go back to rpi which makes sense a lot more than this dumb ranking .
  4. So I want to get this straight. Your telling me that a 4-5 team Palmetto is the 9th best team this year. It seems maxoreps does not count losses if you lose to a solid team at all. They have a 5-4 team lake Brantley rated super high too. What a joke. End this crazy rankings next year and go back to rpi. The rankings don’t really match up that much anyway when the fhsaa ones come out. Whole things is maddening because playoffs will be determined by this.
  5. There will be issues with any system. I just have a problem with the lack of transparency of maxpreps ratings. I see a team with four losses ranked super high and they got beat bad in three of them. The latest. A 27plus beat down and they rose four spots in regular maxpreps rankings of the state. The regular rankings must focus too much on Strength of schedule for that non sense to happen
  6. I have seen examples where teams get run off field and rise a few spots in the maxpreps rankings and other times where the drop like a rock. Using maxpreps without knowing their formula is a bad idea. The system was better when it was a third record and the. Opponents record and a third and opponents opponents record for a third but that is too easy. No money to be made off that
  7. Western hs is rated as 6th best team in 4m at 3-2 with big wins against Taravella who is 0-5. Some Georgia team that is 1-5 and coconut creek who is 3-3. Really. The. Go destroyed by ST Thomas and American h. The. That winter park team is still rated three with weak schedule and ahead of team that just beat them. O something please explain this secret dumb formula to determine playoffs to me
  8. The old system of district winner and runner up was much better
  9. The max Oreos rankings must take into account past results because how is apopka 6 in 4m. Give me a break. They struggled to beat cooler and a sad dr Phillips team. I guess losing to edgewater close matter more in dumbass secret rankings
  10. It’s tough to trust fhsaa to create and operate a playoffs system. The one idiotic system have the Laing team more points for losing than the winning team got. Maxoreps is like local newspaper who rank 1-3 teams in top 16 . What a joke.
  11. How come the fhsaa cant use the formulae they had before where it was a third win and opponents record etc. instead no one know what the heck is being judged by maxoreeos because formula protected by copyright. What a joke.
  12. I am ready to go back to district champ and runner up
  13. The new set up has not solved anything and the blowouts are even more often since metro non recruiting teams are in killer districts across huge enrollment distances.
  14. I was posting about this when we did suburban and metro debate. Who are we concerned about the most when making rules for high school football? The metro suburban plan only really helped about 10 schools who now may win a state title instead of being a semi finalist or finalist. Put elite cheaters in one class and let them beat each other’s brains on to win the elite true state champion. The other 90% of the teams who have zero chance at a real state championship now and get drilled by cheaters can compete against each other for regional crowns in lower divisions. We keep catering to elite few at cost of all.
  15. Apopka is not the fifth to best team at all. Sorry Darter but you have at least two to three losses coming. Your d is awesome but your offense is lousy and has zero chance against Edgewater or Seminole. Looks like a jv team . What happened darter to the offense .
  16. Hornet. Not to contradict you but I just looked up that Winter Park team and you idea that they are student athletes is bull crap. I saw where they were busted for recruiting where they were putting kids up in apartments and a whole slew of violations of fhsaa. Article below Winter Park High School football players ineligible after faked documentation uncovered Students transferred from Timber Creek between spring, fall 2018 Emilee Speck, Digital journalist Published: August 23, 2018, 6:33 PM Tags: WINTER PARK, Fla. – Four high school football players have been ruled ineligible after the Florida High School Athletic Association found that their residential documents were faked in order for the students to play for Winter Park High School this school year. According to the Florida High School Athletic Association investigation, Winter Park High School received multiple transfer students starting in the spring and fall of this year. State athletic officials said they were concerned about the nature of these student-athlete transfers and attempted to verify their eligibility to play for the school. Two 18-year-old football players told News 6 the now ineligible students transferred from Timber Creek High School as seniors, adding that this will probably ruin their future college football careers. Winter Park High School has received 10 other transfers this year, but those players were cleared, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
  17. Columbia. You may beat Naples and we know your team is solid. My point is only about three to five teams in each division have a real shot at winning any suburban title except Cisco’s who has about a 95% chance of winning its title. No real parity. At least the real games will give us something else to talk about. Naples almost beat central a few times and northwestern once. If they can hang with them then they have a pretty good shot at competing in 3s. Good luck this season as you are one of the lucky ones with a chance to win that 90%!of schools don’t have thanks to super privates and recruiting.
  18. Columbia is bent at me for saying suburban is a lower division and that Columbia is not favorite to win 3s. My whole point from beginning is that the new plan will not create parity at all because really awesome teams like Naples Columbia. Venice mainland. Lakeland and Osceola who already make semi finals and finals will roll on suburban and the same teams there will win every year and crush rest of division. So solution does not solve problem but screwed many non cheater metro schools by squeezing 8 divisions into four.
  19. The only teams that beat Naples are dade super teams in Miami central and northwestern and the state took them away so unless Venice moves to 3s. Naples will either be state champ or finalist probably. It’s tough playing option teams with real skill players.
  20. So after ten pages of posts what have we learned. Broward and dade have best teams in the state most of the time and it’s because of recruiting. True The fhsaa let’s Polk county run away from metro schools with bs density change. True the fhsaa ignores recruiting and even when they busy a team nothing real happens. True The real fixes to make competitive divisions like throw privates in own division is illegal in Florida and mo one agrees on any other fox like promotion. True columbia posts more than anyone else’s true. naples will go further than Columbia in 3s. We will see
  21. I have seen many cases where the fhsaa busts a school for blatant recruiting violations and teams still gets to play in playoffs with recruited players so they are basically saying it’s ok even if by laws say it isn’t. So if no enforcement the. Make all teams with over four transfers in a year play 8a. Let cheaters beat each other up .
  22. The Lakeland Polk being suburban and lee being suburban is pure corruption. As far as suburban competitiveness. Madison wins for sure it’s division. cocoa wins for fun it’s division Naples wins venice Lakewood or Osceola wins big division boy is that some parity to justify dumb suburban idea. Some rotten schools get to get beat by 60 by cocoa in semis and finals
  23. Maybe we will got to a third break up once all the same teams win in suburban as well.We can call it kicking country metro suburban and somehow get Polk county and Lakeland away from Venice and Osceola.
  24. Columbia. Your school did fine under old system why the need to change when Madison is still in your way.
  25. That committee is worthless. Fhsaa committee had few metro representation
