I'm now asking for the second time how a system can become out dated (and now "even more" outdated)?

  • What part of "winning it on the field" is outdated?
  • Why do you get to deem what is or is not "outdated"?

Just because you don't like the answer (that only champions have earned the right to advance) doesn't mean you get to have another answer. The answer is what the answer is...just because you call it names (outdated) doesn't change anything.

Yeah because only district champs are good teams? 

 

Bet west Orange was so much better than apopka

 

Want to know what score was in playoffs rematch 

 

Apopka won 42-0

 

So was West Orange a better team because they got lucky in regular season? 

 

Why not just go back another chapter and determine state champs by who the ap poll votes number 1 bc that's totally a guarantee of who's best in state just like 1 game in September determines who was better for the ENTIRE season

...so, I continue to ask for a reason (that's a hard thing to find anymore) why anyone other than district champions should advance to the post season?

Bc one team winning in regular season isn't always the best team the entire season

My way is objective. A win is a win. A loss is a loss. Both have consequences...therefore, there is nothing left to question or interpretation.

Your way is subjective. That's okay. Most of the world is anymore. If folks want a system where they feel their opinion matters more than real life results, that's fine. Just call it what it is.

however ELIMINATING a regular season LOSS is NEVER considering the "entire season"...it's only considering the post-season.

How can you justify a team getting lucky in first game being better for entire season?

Slow down and watch this...you ready?

How can you justify a team getting lucky in the second game being better for the entire season?

Do you realize how many teams out there win district rematches in playoffs after losing in regular season?

Bc at end of day the regular season don't mean nothing 

 

I would trade all the meaningless district championship wins for a state championship any day of the week 

 

The state title is what matters

ColumbiaHighFan2017class, we are going in circles because you're looking at this as an argument...I'm not arguing with you, brother. I'm just saying, if you're looking for fair, the only system is to allow the game to be played and respect the result. There are plenty of systems to allow rematches and second and third chances to folks...

West Orange won by 4 in a mid season game 

 

Apopka won by 42 in November 

 

Which sounds like the clear winner  and who looks like the lucky winner

If you better team you don't get beat 42-0

I would think that a good team will be at their best in November vs September so the November win carries more weight with most people

    • 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.
