Geez - one down year and *poof*, you're fired.

Weak sauce.

That's duval county for you 

 

Part of reason Trinity Christian and Bolles been only consistent teams over there 

 

I would count university Christian bc 2a lacks truly elite teams 

 

Plus they have faced Trinity and other elite teams recently and basically lose every time

It’s Clay County not Duval.

When you go from being as good as they were under Coach Chip to as bad as they have been the past two years. I don’t find it that shocking. That school should be competing for District Champs and Region Champs with the kind of talent that is over there.

7-3 his first year. Not far off of Chip's 8-2 the year before. This season was tough, though.

I think you find out more about the direction of a program in the second year versus the first year. Just as a new coach shouldn’t have to take the blame for losses if they have taken over a program that was in disarray prior to their arrival. I think the same logic should be applied when evaluating a coach who wins in their first year that they arrive when they take over a program that was successful prior to them being a head coach.

I'm just wondering if the constant transferring of players in and out isn't taking a toll on some of these coaches. They are trying all summer to put a viable team together and players up and leave at various times and for various reasons. Maybe other players arrive that have to be brought up to speed quickly. Many of these coaches are giving a lot of their time and effort and are probably not getting paid much or not being paid at all. At least, before the allowing of transfers anywhere at anytime, the coach knew that most of the players he worked with would still be there after the summer. Doesn't seem to be much dedication, on the part of many players, to either the school or the coaching staff anymore. Just a what's in it for me attitude. :(

Your last statement pretty much sums it up.

    • The video is a couple of years old at this point, but my buddies and I have watched it as instinctive of what a coach should generally do on 4th down. It is also the reason why I loved watching Georgia Tech and Paul Johnson's triple option because of how aggressive he was in trying for it on 4th down (except last year).

      A good example of a lack of aggressiveness in hurting the team was the PItt-Penn State game. Pitt on the 1 yard line decides to kick the FG rather than try a 4th attempt from the 1 yard line. The kicker misses the kick and Pitt never really recovers. Pitt was down 7 at the time with 5 minutes left. 

      Interestingly, Denver went for 2 when they were down 1 at home with 30 seconds left and got it and Chicago drove 40 yards in 31 seconds to allow former Gator Eddie Pineiro to hit the game winning 53 yard field goal. 
    • Sorry Jimmyb, Merritt Island will be will be Vero's 56th regular season win in a row !
    • Many schools, including a couple of elite SEC programs, have claimed "fake" titles over the years, Bama being one of them. I'm a long time Gator fan, but I'm not delusional enough to believe the Gators could beat the UCF team of the past three years.
    • If you've ever watched the Paul Feinbaum Show on SEC Network, in reality the Bama Fan Club Show, you would have seen a very upset host and most of his followers condemned UCF, and they continue to condemn UCF today. Kirk Herbstreet on ESPN mocked UCF at the time, but doesn't anymore. On College Football Final (ESPN), Joey Galloway stated just yesterday that UCF deserves to be in the conversation for the CFP.  
    • I don't know why I typed 05 06.  I actually meant 96 but it was 98 I remember that now because we played them that year LOL...  yeah it was ugly.
