Their Varsity team is looking for teams in classes 3A and below if I remember right

Yup, that was the goal.

 

The varsity team is their JV team but instead of playing a JV schedule, they have branded themselves as a second varsity so they can play other varsity teams.

Good to know all the Miami schools are playing the national team & not the varsity team.

 

Which I don't see what's the difference there varsity team is probably better then 98% of the rest of the schools in Florida lol

Mighty if they were better then 98% then they would not be wanting 3a or lower

 

It's basically a jv team playing Varisty schedule if they played a decent team in a high class (solid playoff team) they would lose while the national team would need to be playing top 5 team in Florida before it becomes a threat to beat them (or something along those lines)

I somehow think that all players recruited by IMG, and that make the cut for their football team, are pretty much the cream of the crop no matter Varsity or JV. I just don't think that any team is going to have an easy time competing with their so called "JV" team. Since IMG doesn't have a bonafide JV team all of their players are varsity players. They all train together and each player has expectations of being the best. I'm quite sure that IMG platoons a lot and every player probably gets quality time. Their JV team may not be as overwhelming as their varsity. However, those players may play harder than their varsity counterparts simply because they want to prove something. We will be playing IMG this season and I'm expecting it to be the toughest game of the season, JV or otherwise.

Just watched the video of the IMG preseason game against 7A Eastridge. Now, I know that it's only a preseason game and that Eastridge is not STA. However, they are a pretty good 7A team. I could not believe the speed and quickness of the IMG team both on offense and defense. It's like watching a college team against a high school team. Eastridge could do nothing. Eastridge seemed to be playing hard, or at least as hard as they are capable of. IMG was just methodically doing their thing. They are just on another level totally. IMG has a 6'5" WR Jalen Jordan who nobody is going to be able to cover. If anything he's as good or maybe even  better than their outstanding 6'4" WR Brian Hightower. He has got to have 4.4 time. How can anyone that big be so fast?

Does anyone know what the makeup of the IMG Blue team will be? Does IMG have what could be called a JV team? Will the Blue team be a permanent team of certain players or will the Varsity backups and 2nd or 3rd string bounce back and forth from the Varsity to the Varsity Blue? Does the FHSAA have any say in how they proceed? My team plays the Blue team this season and I sure would like to research what that Blue team is going to look like. I'm wondering if our HC will be getting film in advance and. if so, will the preparation by our team be realistic given that the makeup of the Blue team could change from week to week. Just asking.

IMG won't have a JV team this season. Instead they'll split the roster between the varsity A and B squads. As far as if guys can move up or down on a week-to-week basis, I'm not sure about that. 

The FHSAA really won't have too much say in how they proceed, I don't think, just because IMG is not playing in the state series (which is how they are able to field to varsity squads).

So, this means that it will be quite a chore preparing for the Blue team as you will basically have to prepare for anything or anybody. My take on all of this is that the Blue team will really not be much different than the national team. Just a somewhat lesser quality, but still very formidable, coming at you. One good thing may be that we are playing on our field and not entering the jaws of death in Bradenton.

    • FSU is baaaaad.    But, good for those Florida boys!
    • I think the people who thought of the running clock are probably the same people who routinely got their butts kicked when they played football. 
    • The running clock does not assure that a team will back off and avoid injuring players on the opposing team. Having officials fail to enforce the play clock during the running clock can add to the frustrations of players that are hoping to get some actual playing time late in the game, especially when it's apparent that the trailing team is making no effort to run plays in the prescribed time. I think the people who thought of the running clock are probably the same people that came up with participation awards to make every kid a "winner". 
    • I suspect the reason why there is a 'running clock' rule now is because too many times, the opposing coaches didn't see eye to eye on how many points were enough (or how many points were too many) - especially in rivalry games, or when the subs should start playing, or when timeouts should be called, or what plays are appropriate to run, etc.   To a certain extent, the running clock rule was implemented to save a coach from his own pride.  Remember a few years back?  In the third quarter, running clock was "optional" for the team that was getting beat.  It wasn't until the 4th quarter that it was mandatory.   But, too many 'old school' coaches felt like agreeing to running clock in the 3rd quarter was a sign of weakness or, as you put it, throwing in the towel.  So they refused to do it.   And the 35 point differential at the beginning of the 3rd quarter turned into a 50+ differential by the time the 3rd quarter ended.  Hurt egos are one thing.  Hurt players are another story.   I'm pretty sure that's why running clock now becomes mandatory at whatever point in the second half the difference becomes 35 or more.   At that point, it's just a matter of getting the game over with a little sooner to protect the players.  Oh, and it's worth noting that not all schools are as deep as others.  Some schools are lucky to have a full squad of second-stringers. 
    • One thing I will say about some of those 8A schools in the Orlando area is that they've either never had success or they have a student population that doesn't value football. Schools that tend to be large with a heavy population of Hispanic students tend to care more about soccer, baseball and basketball than football. It's mainly because their families didn't grow up watching football so it isn't as big of a deal. A great example is Poinciana. They are historically one of the worst football schools around but they won a State Championship in basketball a few years ago. So the athletes are on the campuses for sure. But if the programs have no history of success then the athletes see no reason to play. Another factor is the laid-back transfer rules. Now, kids can essentially consolidate talent on teams. So that also adds to some of these massive blowouts - especially when districts consist of teams like Cypress Creek being made to play teams like Osceola and Lake Nona. Of course they'll get blown out. It's going to be like that for the foreseeable future though.
