Preseason outlook

Recommended Posts

We can put DFB wherever we want early on like usual.  The only sure thing  is they will lose soundly in their final post season  game of the season.  That said, to me it is hard to classify DFB as a elite FL team in recent years outside of a roster on paper.  They are not losing to elite FL teams when the $ is on the line,  they are getting pounded on the scoreboard.

DFB's last 5 post season season ending scores :

 

2016 =  7 - 26

2015 = 0 - 17

2013 = 6 - 43

2012 = 13 - 41

2011 = 3 - 24 

Combined = 29 -149 !

 

That is not a isolated score.  Five postseasons over 6 years is a established trend.  Fair?

It is unfortunate because I feel they are better than this. But for some reason, when it matters, they choke. Last year, Deerfield Beach vs Seminole would have been a very attractive 8A state final.

They choke in a sense of getting slaughtered but realistically they lost to flat out better teams.  

Southridge, Flanagan, Cypress Bay and the Miramar teams were just - better.  DFB could have kept the games closer though.  DFB was pretty beat up when they played Southridge last year particularly and I think 2016 was their chance to get to Orlando with a down 8A South.    

The Flanagan, Miramar, and Cypress Bay teams were on another level than DFB in those other years IMO.  Smothering Defenses by Flanagan and Miramar and those Cypress Bay offenses were  a machine (as Apopka knows ;) ) .

Maybe you all should schedule cocoa or mainland  in the regular season 

 

Heck even Dr Phillips, Osceola or even apopka could be other matchups that might come in handy to gain experience 

 

When Vero was great it was when they played powerhouses

I think last year's score isn't really showing how close that game was.   DFB was up at the start of the 4th quarter and yes they blew the game with big turnovers.   They were in that game though.  In fact I think they fumbled the ball or got stuffed at the 1 yard line early where they might have gone up 14-0.   2015 they definitely were outclassed and before that they just weren't as good IMO.   

DFB's best team in my opinion was in 2007.  They beat state champ STA and were a couple seconds away from taking down one of the best FL teams ever (MNW).   I'd love to see a replay of that game.

I would agree with that for the most part....  DFB was indeed outscored in that game 20- in the 4th qtr.  But keep in mind Deerfield Beach's only TD was on a fumble return  in the first quarter.  

Southridge had SIX turnovers in that game and DFB could only muster 7 total points.  Southridge fumbled 5 times and lost all 5 in that game, and also got picked once and only  total 7pts off all of that  DFB.

DFB did not fumble in the game but got picked twice , one being a 96 yard INT return in the 4th qtr.  

Overall, if you are a +4 on takeaways in a game and only muster 7 pts , and lose 7-26  - not good.

 

DFB got banged up a bit in the previous 2 weeks and had some tragic stuff happen off the field going into that game.  I believe that game may have been a different final score if DFB goes in healthy.

I am going to give a lean to Southridge in late July....  To me DFB may match or even have more SFL  8A "Varsity" level depth than Southridge, but I give the edge in starters to Southridge.  I am fairly confident Southridge has not slipped to much from 2016, but I simply can't say the same about DFB - particularly offensively.  DFB 2015 and 2016 WR core were both very, very talented.  I know they have a talented McDougle coming up but I just don't see the depth or overall skill set returning at WR.   Then again, I have a hunch their roster is going to look a lot more polished then what I anticipate.

Nice, we need to find some clips of that game. I remember seeing some a while back, but it seems a lot of content on the internet from those times have disappeared.

    • They used to teach sex ed at Columbia, but they stopped because they needed the car for driver's ed. 
    • They don't teach sexed in Columbia County?
    • For whatever reasons, I see a big difference between high school and college.  I'm glad the NCAA decided to give college spring sport participants an extra year of eligibility . . .  although it appears that the burden will be on the schools to find the money needed to pay for the players who will be returning for an extra year of college (perhaps a full year unless they sit out fall semester), the underclassmen who would be returning anyway,  as well as the new players coming in.   But it was the right thing to do.  And while many of the winter sport athletes (like basketball and gymnastics) missed out on what could have been the highlight of their career (like post-season tournaments), I'm OK with not giving these student-athletes another year of eligibility.  More of a gut call than a logical analysis.  But, while I feel horrible for the high school spring sport athletes, and remain hopeful that they will be allowed to complete their spring sport seasons -- abbreviated as they may be -- I just don't feel right about high school kids postponing graduation to play another season of high school sports.  I just don't think it would be smart/prudent/advisable to put off an entire year of college just so they can come back for another year of high school and play another year of  baseball or football (or whatever).   [As an aside, such a decision by the FHSAA would likely require them to change their bylaws and allow kids to play after they've reached the magic age (19?)]. As a practical matter, seniors who participate in spring sports, and who hope to obtain college scholarships in those sports, already have been offered.  Baseball and softball are both big club sports, and tennis is in a category all its own.  Lacrosse is still relatively new in Florida, but the better players already have been identified as juniors and/or based on their club play.  Same with even newer sports like boy's volleyball and water polo.  I'm not really sure where Track & Field and Weightlifting fit in, but I'm guessing the really fast and really strong athletes already have been identified and, if scholarships are available, offered.  I do feel particularly bad for the flag football players if they are not able to complete their seasons, as the sport doesn't exist yet in college (except as a club sport).    I saw something posted the other day quoting a high school baseball coach who claimed it would take at least three weeks of practice to have his team ready to play games again.   Sorry, but I call B.S. on this.   If I were a high school senior who played baseball (like I once was), you could have me game-ready in a week - especially if school was over or almost over and restrictions on practice time, if any, were lifted.  My thought:  once the FHSAA gives teams the green light to hit the field again, give them all a week to practice, have them play one or two games and then go straight into district tournaments, with all seeding be done at random.  Double elimination, if possible.  Yeah, some good teams might get shafted and some seasons are going to come to end way too soon for some teams and a lot of players, but something is better than nothing.  Anyway, I was bored and this topic seemed as good as any to stir things up a little.  I've put my thoughts out there.   What do you guys think?
    • Here is a message from the FHSAA.  They want to extend the season.  It won't happen but at least the FHSAA is not just canceling and trying to find ways.  However in my opinion they are giving false hope and there is no way this will happen.   GAINESVILLE, FL - Given the directive of President Trump to maintain following CDC guidelines through April 30, 2020, combined with Governor DeSantis and Commissioner Corcoran's mandate for schools in Florida to remain closed through May 3, 2020, the FHSAA will continue to follow suit with all scheduled FHSAA meetings, conferences, and athletic events postponed. Pending schools are back in session and afforded the opportunity to resume activities after May 3rd, by Federal, State and Local authorities, the FHSAA will follow the advice and guidance available to us at that time regarding the continuance of all FHSAA spring sports.   In light of the current situation, the FHSAA staff is actively working on creative solutions for the continuance of spring sports, which could extend through June 30th. The FHSAA does understand the hardships caused by COVID-19 and the inability to play spring sports. If we are not able to continue spring sports, the FHSAA is working diligently to create a plan regarding additional eligibility for students who have not been able to participate in spring sports.    The health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches, administrators, officials, fans and local communities are our top priority. We appreciate all member schools' cooperation in following Federal, State and Local recommendations and mandates during this time.   For the most up-to-date information, please visit the FHSAA website. The FHSAA staff will continue to follow the latest developments and will continue to provide updated information as deemed necessary.   The FHSAA office will remain closed following the Governor's recommendation. However, staff will continue to work remotely, during regular business hours. For staff contact information, click here.
