Ron Ream stepped down from Benjamin after 37 years as HC to retire. 

John I Leonard has tabbed Keith Chattin as the new HC, who spent the past five seasons involved with the Tampa Lennard program. 

With Ream gone, I'm sure some local schools will be pulling their players. Namely, Kaiir Elam.

All these players hoppin from school to school reminds me of my son's teams when we were stationed at military bases in the 80's.  He played 2 years at Camp Lejeune High, NC,  then 2 years at the base HS in Naples, Italy.  Coaches never knew who'd try out,  or even show up for the game,  since so many kids were uprooted when parents got transferred both in and out at any time.  Frequently in mid-season players would be transferred out,  and at times a new player would transfer in, show up in mid-season.   Coaches just adapted and overcame.  Italy was strange since all away games required a USAF cargo plane flight ... to Germany, England, Sicily, or Spain,  sleeping overnight in empty barracks,  eating in the chow hall with the troops,  once rolling over to the field in a convoy of green 6-by trucks.  From K thru 12th grade my son attended 8 different schools around the world.

No it is not. Admin wont just take any kid good at athletics, and its still expensive. TC was very good back before transfer rules and before a more academic focus. Different school now.

You know, I do vaguely recall hearing that one of the reasons why Brantley left was because he spent more time fighting the administration than coaching on the field.  Interesting hire in Shane Matthews, I don't believe I'm familiar with the name.

I can't find anywhere where Matthews was hired but he is a former gator

 

He also has a son playing qb at Gainesville if I'm thinking of right person 

 

If so we may see a transfer happen there

Benjamin Coach hired

Newman and Pulaski part ways
The article seems weird to me. I can't tell if he was let go or if he chose to no longer coach, the language is very vague and very positive. I mean he was 10-9 so he isn't lighting up the win and loss columns.  Usually, if they are "parting ways" than usually he was fired or he is going to someplace else. But usually you announce you are going to someplace else first.

Thats awesome. Best way to beat your competition is to be the one INTERVIEWING them, then tell the principal you have no good candidates. I hate it when athletic directors hire themselves. Its dirty. Im sure all the coaches that interviewed were very happy to waste their time and be made a fool of. This assures this school that went 0 fer..will be a dumpster fire for years to come.

    • 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.
