      READ before posting rumors   06/01/2017

      Due to some recent posts that have been posted on unqualified rumors, I am having to take an extra step to keep things safeguarded our working relationships we have with teams, schools, and players. If you have a rumor that could potentially damaging to a program (i.e. Oxbridge rumor from yesterday), you will have to message me directly on here. There was a ton of backlash on the Oxbridge post yesterday and while you all might not have seen it, my email and Twitter DM's blew up.

Honestly schedule kinda weak for someone of sta level they don't look like they will be that tested come playoffs but considering there not many teams in state much less 7a who can go toe to toe with them it likely won't matter

I agree. I think they should play a marquee Dade County team in addition to St John Bosco. And add an elite team from another part of the state. Schedule doesn't do much for me at all.

Outside of SJB they won't be tested at all. You can only hope Deerfield Beach puts up a competitive game, which they usually do against STA.

This is PATHETIC!!! I don't understand why don't St Thomas just do what iMG do and play all the top teams in the nation schedule as many teams as they won't they just won't be able to play for a championship another 10-0 season and another lopsided playoff run as they win the title... Also didn't new playoff format starts this year where the tougher the team the more points you get if you win????

Only really matters for teams who can't win district in the higher classes

Only three games on that Schedule that will be close. Deerfield, Miramar and Bosco.

An IMG type schedule can get expensive. I would think they can pick up a Central, BTW or Northwestern fairly easily.

Those guys would at least generate some excitement ! Why is Stranahan on the schedule ?  They were a 5a doormat !

Probably to pad stats and record

Ever stop to think that their schedule may be the result not of what teams WILL play them but what teams WONT play them. IMG has a very hard time scheduling in Florida teams and would imagine it would be the same situation for STA. Does anyone know whether Central, BTW, MNW, or any other top Florida team, has even attempted to schedule STA?

If they face the right team on right night it very well can

Based on that logic, that can happen - regardless of schedule.

 

I think it's safe to say STA knows what the he11 they are doing. There are other schools out there that actually do pad their records ( actually historically speaking) with wins and stats but have basically no hardware to show for it. I'll just leave it at that- if you catch my drift, Mr. "Winningist program in North Florida History" .

We wont know the effect of the schedule until their season is complete

 

If they fall in playoffs or state would you think that having a light schedule hurt them? Hmm?

Do you realize that several of those non-district games are contracted?

Do you even understand how a contract works?

 

Do you think STA has control that the contracted scheduling of Flanagan goes from Nationally elite to losing 10 FBS caliber players to Central, Chaminade and AHP in 13 months?

 

If Columbia had this schedule you would be calling it a "hard" schedule, wouldn't you?

Accually i don't think Flanagan that bad a game

STA can't control when teams like Miramar, Flanagan and Deerfield go sour and struggle to make the playoffs , yet may have been nationally ranked the previous year.

 

STA's schedule could be better but a lot of the non-district games are contracted. Now watch when STA's contract is up with these teams they will try to play a team in a new series that appears to be on the up and they will only be good for a year. It's a cycle for the strong public schools in Broward.

 

Then you have a team like McArthur on the schedule that was probably on par with the level of Venice last year and it goes unnoticed like a doormat or something....

If I changed the name of McArthur to Venice, would it look better to you?

 

As for Stranahan..my only opinion on that is Stranahan is the neighboring rival next door. The schools ardown the street from one another. Back in the 80s and perhaps some of the 90s , I believe Stranahan actually was more competitive...

That game will be very ugly. Piper is better than Flanagan right now and perhaps Deerfield Beach as well.

Things change quick here....and it's only March.

So Flanagan likely won't sniff playoffs?

My point is STA has had better schedules and I would have liked them to play a Dade power again but I this this particular year the flexibility may have been a little limited due to contracts already in place.

If STA is shooting for national props and were to run the table.. they better hope a few of those teams make deep playoff runs- which right now looks unlikely outside of possibly Miramar to me.

Doubt it...I'm thinking Cypress Bay or Western in that two spot in that District but I won't count out Plantation rebounding. Steve Davis has returned after a year off and Plantation traditionally is a sound team.

    • I don't think centennial has the horses quite yet to be #2 in the district after going to a couple of their practices. They are definitely catching up quick though 
    • Well a lot of these privates are already doing it   The open transfer rule is so teams can be built to increase the competition level and compete with these schools like sta for example    It would be almost impossible for a north team to gather enough talent to challenge them but with open transfer teams could be built overnight and create some balance    In large cities like Tampa and Jacksonville and Miami and Orlando it been happening for years,  this just means smaller areas can now do the same 
    • If I may, would like to get feedback on what players, fans, and coaches feel about the new policy on unbridled transfers. What are your ideas on any player being able to transfer to any school at any time? Is it really a good idea to allow certain teams to build "super teams" or "all star" teams? Are the results going to be that there will be a handful of super teams with the rest of the teams unable to compete in any meaningful way? If the purpose of a high school is to promote school pride and dedication, along with academics and competition, how will this be accomplished for most of the schools that have been depleted of their best athletes? Also, what kind of games will we be watching where the outcome is non competitive due to one team being so much better than the other based solely upon good players having transferred in as opposed to homegrown talent? Are we in fact creating a monster situation?  My opinion has not yet been fully formulated and the reason why I would like to hear differing opinions from folks that follow high school football as much as I do.  
    • If u look back on my early spring breakdown of the district, u can see that i had Vero and Centen makin playoffs but the system is different this year tho
