I Know FloTech, you're right.  I was just throwing out a homer plug to my Buccaneers. Please excuse my exuberance. :)

Maybe we can reschedule y'all for that spring game next year

Truth be told, the most painful semi-final loses were at Lakeland in 2004 and at Miami in 2011. Our senior QB in '04 got knocked out early. We never played a back up throughout the year. Put an untested, no throw athlete in the QB position. He wasn't ready for the pressure and neither was the coaching staff.  At the end of the 3rd quarter it was still only 7-7 with zero offense since the initial 1st quarter Td and injury. Also the same score at MC in 2011, 7-7 after three quarters. A close third one was a 28-15 loss to MC at Traz Powell in 2013.  Two Mainland Td's were nullified by a SFL officiating crew (counter to video evidence) and a dropped easy-in-the-breadbasket 2pt conversion try sent the Bucs on to a very winnable defeat.  Oh well....

St. Augustine is not a one hit wonder, they are consistently in the playoffs every year, just always have a tough road. They lost in the state semifinals last season at Armwood.

When he said one hit wonder he means teams who have only played in finals once

Still crazy we have more finals appearances than St Augustine, mainland and Vero Beach 

 

Wish we could get all 3 on the schedule 

 

Maybe if we get that new football purposal that been rumored we will have space to do so

We need to play you all during the regular season 

Agree Columbo. I saw Lake City, under Danny Green , edge Mainland at Disney 17 or 18yrs ago. Since then our 7 on 7 teams have matched up athletically a couple of times. This would be a good in season test for both programs.

It's crazy we don't play, it would probably not be much more travel than our games against Lincoln we were doing before Lincoln dropped us 2 years ago 

 

Mainland is a much more athletic team which we need more of on the schedule

St Augustine never receives the proper respect. Not a better consistent public school winner lies between the Georgia border and Mainland High on the eastern seaboard then the "oldest city" Yellow Jackets. Mainland edged them in this season's spring game. This would also be a good travel friendly test with my Bucs. I've mentioned this with the coaching staff a few times along with Cocoa.

If that one thing the fhsaa is considering goes through then districts would be gone and we would have 10 games to fill

 

Then games like these could come back 

I like that. Currently Mainland's district is a detriment to finding quality opponents

The thing that i heard sounds good on paper 

 

Teams grouped on sport by sport basis by competitive level

 

After all we ain't winning state in anything under our current format,  maybe now we can

 

Hope fhsaa passes it :)

Columbia, I struggle using state final appearances from 50+ years ago in program comparisons.   I think the 70's is a more reasonable starting point for comparisons of the "modern era."

There were teams that made final appearances in the 1960's(while schools were still segregated) that may as well be different schools now because they have changed so much.  Not taking away from the marvelous accomplishment, but making a state semi today in the upper classes is so much harder than it was to make a final 50 years ago, based on the number of schools competing and the level of competition.     

According to one source, Wildwood, the team Columbia played in 1964, had less than 100 kids in their upper 3 grades and their line averaged about 165 pounds.  By all means take credits for the titles.  Just suggesting to use caution when using old data for modern-day comparisons.

They went from 1 elite team (Palm Bay) to 3 average ones

More like 2 taking turns being average and overachieving to above and one below average that is working on trying to change their culture now that they brought in a good alumni from their best team in history. So basically Bayside is trying to ressurect themselves much like how Rockledge did.
