  1. My Hot Take: Clemson is going down this year, if not the Canes (who could play them twice) than by someone - they just feel ripe with all the hype. They don't make the final this year, maybe not even the final 4.
  2. As a Canes fan there hasn't been a lot to be optimistic about for the last 15 years - The Coastal in 2017; The nostalgic beat down of Notre Dame and Four straight against FSU. In two weeks, they need to use that opportunity to create doubt in Clemson's mind of their invincibility. I feel good about the type players and buy-in of this season. A proven QB and an OC that brought Miami into the modern world. W or L, they need to keep progressing this system and not have those let downs against teams they should roll. Miami as a program had to earn their swagger back, not play on
  3. The Tarpons have played with a lot of undersized O-Lines even why back when I played - I played in the NAIA in the 70s, started three years as the smallest OT in the NAIA at 195, and the other OT was one of the largest at 6'8" 285 - my game was about 24 inches off the ground. Then I moved to my HS position my Sr year at guard. Those O-lines above are massive. I saw Carol City when they thumped Charlotte in the State Semi-final game a few years ago with guys that size - but a few had some footwork. I agree; you see these great big O-linemen and I marvel how they do it. I've watched three
  4. In Punta Gorda, families had a choice to go virtual or Brick and Morter. School went well for the first week, we got a game in the Friday night with 1,000 in the stands, and play in Sarasota Friday. JV game tomorrow night and Volleyball is playing. In school, kids are wearing masks (If they get caught not wearing, they get referalls, then if it happens again, they automatically got to virtual school). Teachers and staff have to have a mask on anywhere on school property. They spray and wipe down desks between each class. Doors are propped open to let students in and out at bell, so no o
  5. Players leave every program, we've lost kids to Venice, Port Charlotte; no one can take them away, if they want to stay. And, at least put PC first - Desoto was a farm team for them over the last decade after that former Desoto coach arrived there.
  6. They’re down, and they're young. They do have a beast on the DL. They lost five starters to transfer (Three to Port Charlotte, and two to us). I think someone told me they also had some kids academically ineligible, but they only dressed 24.
  7. VeniceIndiansFootball, you guys have an interesting schedule this season. How do you think the Indians will fare after seeing the team live if we can get the entire season in? I'm not familar with a couple of those teams your playing.
  8. This is the 2nd year in a row Charlotte is doing that - last year we started 5 seniors, all first time starters. This year only a couple with playing experience. We always have a fair amount of skills, but that's our achilles tendon.
  9. PC's QB is experienced and they're going to be good this year. They usually always play good Defense, so at least you scored some points, that's a lot against them.
  10. I hope we can keep it rolling. Tarpons got the game in, they're playing around SW FL and the Canes start Thursday night - things are looking up.
  11. How did it end? Last I heard Venice was getting thumped down 21-0 in first quarter, did they mount a come back?
  12. I played NAIA Ball in the 70s, we had 7 guys from Belle Glade and another six of us from Florida playing in Dodge City Kansas, St Mary of the Plains College - pretty darn good teams. Our two running backs, Roy Brown and Walt Haslam who both rushed for over 1,000 yds my Sr season (I was an OG). They told me about running down those rabbits when they burned the Cane fields down, 35 years before ESPN ran that story and promoted it with some Miami kids. Another school, Bethel College out there, had some Pahoke guys.
  13. In Punta Gorda they pre-sold to parents of team, cheer and band. Then they have the remaining available tickets (up to a 1,000 which is 1/4 capacity) to sell at gate. And, there's a District Wide edict that you have to wear a mask on school property at all times. Kids have been great this week in school. They want to be back. Charlotte opens with Desoto - the last time this game was in the Fish Bowl, there were between 5-7,000 but that was the showdown between the State's Top Two rushers. This used to be an old rivalry with good traveling fans, but this is a very different year. I'm
  14. Hold up Hoss, I've seen comments for years where a couple of those 1a teams claim they can play with anybody in the state. Well then, here's their chance.
