Had to fix it. I was in a hurry and should not have posted it until I had time to correct it.

These Regions could have 3 or more teams advance to the playoffs and to the 2nd or 3rd rounds IMO.

Cat_Scratch, in 8A-12 I would swap Western out with Flanagan.

Flanagan has lost 15+ players, mostly 2018s. I'll be surprised if Flanagan musters .500 in their District.

 

As of today, IMO seeing that District a 3 way race with:

 

Miramar - Should hold the 1.

Western- Better Offense , D is suspect.

Plantation - HC Steve Davis returns

 

Cypress Bay - Good but not good enough.

South Plantation- usually inconsistent.

Flanagan- A '19/'20 straw house for now.

Everglades-Not as far off CB or the rest.

How about Trenton representing the North in the 4A championship,

I actually believe that the Trinity Catholic Celtics will surprise everyone in 3A this coming season. We have been down the last two seasons due to the shakeup in the coaching staff from top to bottom

Yes, 3 possibly 4 teams can make it out of one district based on how many points they have. It is very possible that team from Miami Dade or Broward county could wnd up playing their 1st round game in

Yes, I am unaware of a lot of the schools and what they have coming back. I was going off history mostly. Usually these schools are good enough to win through at the end of the year. Flanagan had been a power team for many years, sad they are losing that potential to be a state qualifier.

 

I'm sure there are more regions that I missed the boat on. Maybe some of you guys could pick out a couple more regions of interest?

Sooo I'm under the impression that if it's 4 teams in a district it's possible that 3 out of the 4 can make it into the playoffs Am I right ?? If the point system thing work out in their favor & if that's the case how will that even work out .?? Who will the additional 3rd team play .!??? Lik if. Carol city central & northwestern all made the playoffs out of that district .!?? I'm a little confused by that

It's accually possible for 4 teams to make playoffs in a district

 

Its all about points which determines seeding

 

4 districts in a region so District Champions will be seeds 1-4

 

No runner ups just wild cards between the 4 districts in a region to fill out seeds 5-8

Yes, 3 possibly 4 teams can make it out of one district based on how many points they have. It is very possible that team from Miami Dade or Broward county could wnd up playing their 1st round game in Daytona Beach. Or a team from that area traveling down to play in South Florida in the 1st round.

Jones high school is attracting a lot of talent from surrounding schools with the studs they already had. Moved from 4a to 5a... Making a lot of 5a teams nervous. Lost 2nd round last year to Cocoa my a TD.

Jones is in the same District now as Bishop Moore. That should be interesting.

I don't know what BM returns....Any opinion on 2017 BM?

 

 

I reckon TCA and Bolles now added to Ponte Vedra's 5A District will ruffle some feathers in 5A North also.

 

5A overall is very intriguing to me in 2017. I like it.

Jones could be a real factor in 5a. They will be at their best since Whitfield went there. I expect them to be a threat in 5a.

    • 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.
