No, logical!

 

If you the fhsaa who you gonna please

 

95% of the state or 5%?

I'll side with the area with the best teams. I go to States to watch quality football...not to make you happy, with your socialistic equality ,and watch blowouts.

 

I simply want the best teams to meet. Again, we are getting closer. I like the new format but I just feel the week Districts should have to play the best wildcards...

And yes I think central playing another Miami team in 1st round is fair, they got the talent so put them against teams at their level and in a area where it reasonable travel for both teams

Or you just want the Miami teams to knock each other out so the rest of the state can have a better chance to win states .... I'm down for Central to travel somewhere else to play a number 1 seed in that region... Not guaranteed Central would win.. Go play a Armwood or a Vanguard or a Niceville... I guarantee Central would find that money to go travel to go play that 1st round playoff game...

Not every school can

 

And before you bring Columbia in this even though I'm sure we wouldn't like it we would find a way to make it work but some of the poorer schools can't afford it and would forfeit playing the game due to inability to pay the travel

 

Then Broward idea looks terrible

 

I think idea on paper a good one but it logistically would never work

You think all dade schools or broward schools are rich? Them kids don't be out their asking for donations or selling items or etc for the hell of it... I'm pretty sure you guys have a booster club... Stop with the excuses about poorer schools to rent a couple of coach buses to make a 4 to 5 hr trip down south .... cause any school down here have to make a trip up north for a playoff game, guess why it's going to happen...

I just said we would find a way but yes we have a booster club so we could fund it

 

Some don't

And only time we have gotten coach busses in last 3 years I've been out here was Escambia this year because they were required to by county policy so think about a school like Terry Parker who basically have no booster help and in a poor area

 

How they gonna pay for that?

That idea is based on some of the same logic that this new format proposes.  The idea is to reward teams that play real schedules and no more running for the teams playing scrubs!

 

Also, almost every other major playoff/tournament style applies similar logic.  That is why in the NCAAB tourney, a #1 seed from the best conference gets an easier bracket and a weaker #1 seed gets a few strong  wild card dangerous ACC teams or something.  

 

Logistically, why should 95% of the schools adapt to the 5% like Columbia?  Get with the program!

Broward the 5% is the 5% of the people who would be for a statewide travel in 1st round as most sensable people won't vote for that

 

Secondary Columbia is not one of the teams im worried about

 

If we have to we can fund to make the travel because if we say our booster club needs to get this much money in or we would have to forfeit a playoff trip we would find a way to fund it

 

 

Some teams that are lacking booster clubs in poorer areas or big cities don't have that luxury

Gotcha....Well I guess in the end the difference is when I team like Columbia becomes a wildcard they have have a mentality like " O damn...we have to travel all those hours to go play that team"  versus here in SFL " We coming for you, no more running!"  

 

We'll get bus fares covered one way or the other .....We love playoff OPPORTUNITIES down here!

Bc most people would say a 10 hour travel in 1st round is insane

Who is saying that? List the most ppl... In pretty sure if pahokee had to take a 10hr ride for a playoff ride they wouldn't mine...

    • Another way of putting it...the "big" kid always had a place in hs football.  As a hs coach, when that big kid showed up on the practice field, you said, "Son, we'll find a place for you somewhere." Now only the giant and/or fast kid has a place.  In terms of the average population, a 6'0" 230 pound high schooler is a BIG kid.  But in hs football today, if that kid is slow, there is really not a place for him.  He is too small for the line and too slow for any other position, at least in a state like Florida.        
    • Interesting graphic.... https://noahveltman.com/nflplayers/ Interesting comment..."Nowadays if you're 6' 3" and 280 pounds, you're too big for most skill positions and too small to play line." It's fascinating how over time people of a certain stature have been "squeezed out" of D1 football and/or NFL positions.  40 years ago a skilled, 6'3" 280 guy would be a lineman in the NFL.  Nowadays that guy would likely not be starting on a Power 5 team at any position. I wonder if in the future the same will be said for the 6'4" 300 -pound lineman?  Will they be too big and too small to play on an NFL team?  Everything is becoming more and more specialized.  With participation in football already declining in some areas, this level of specialization is a bit concerning.  Years ago, one saw kids of all shapes and sizes playing hs football.  Not anymore, at least not in the hs football hot spot areas.  Combine that with the growing concern over concussions and parents not allowing kids to play football, and I worry what football in the future will have to offer the "average" kid compared to other sports that seem to offer kids of more varying body types the opportunity to play.
    • I appreciate the response.   Let me focus on this one for just a second.   If an offensive player (a lineman or a receiver) is out ahead of the play (such that the QB or RB is behind them), how are they supposed to know when the play ends if there is no audible signal?   I just don't understand how you can ask a downfield blocker to know when he's supposed to stop blocking.  Is he supposed to turn his head and look behind him every other second to see if the play has ended?  Kind of hard to keep his eye on the man he is blocking if his head is turned around.  Maybe Linda Blair could do it, but I don't know of anyone else.  While I understand the easy "play is over" situations like a ball carrier hitting the ground or running out of bounds, what's wrong with a short, loud whistle to let all players know the play is dead?   Plant got burned by an inadvertent whistle in the playoffs a few years ago, so I understand the need to avoid that kind of situation.  But to not blow the whistle when a play is obviously over (to anyone looking at the play), and then turn around and penalize or send players off to cool down when they're still hitting after the play is over, despite no whistle having been blown, simply does not make sense to me.  But I appreciate the explanation. 
    • Request a refund. They grant them pretty easily. Oddly, Lakeland announced they will not offer any streams this year. They had one of the more reliable streams for the last several years. Bummer.
    • Brian Sheridan passed away this week at the age of 45.  I believe he had been battling cancer.   Sheridan had been a star at Rutgers, where he played linebacker.  He still holds the Rutgers single season tackles record with 161 and is #3 all-time in tackles at Rutgers with 389 he accrued from 1993-1997. He was a hs coach in his home state of NJ before moving moving to FL in 2007.
