In terms of consistency, I think St Thomas is the best overall hs football program the state has ever seen.  That said, it gets boring seeing them beat the same Broward teams to a pulp year after year.  Look at the records above.  Their district games against Ft Lauderdale and Ely this year will likely be running clocks.  For non-district foes, they are playing Piper and Flanagan, both of whom were 1-9 last season.  Stranahan and Boyd Anderson may not fare much better.  Those 6 teams above are a combined 9wins-70losses versus STA.  It would not surprise me if all of them were running clock games.

I like the fact STA routinely plays Deerfield Beach and Miramar.  Even though STA has gotten the best of them, there have been some great games.  For years STA played Cardinal Gibbons(40+ times), but for some reason those games stopped in 2011.  It's a shame, because Cardinal Gibbons has really come in to its own.  And STA has not faced Chaminade since 1981. 

Although I like the idea of "local games," the stats above show that the Broward public schools cannot normally hang with STA.  For that reason, it would be nice to see more games against the better teams from Miami-Dade/Palm Beach or even outside south Floirda. 

Oddly, since 1984, STA has only played regular season games against 2 Florida teams from outside Dade/Broward/Palm Beach...Port St Lucie and Ft Pierce Central, each in 2001 and 2002.  None of those were very good teams. In the 1970's and early 1980's, STA routinely played teams from outside their area during the regular season(Coral Shores, Key West, Naples, Immokalee, Clewiston, Okeechobee, Frostproof, Cocoa Beach, Bartow).  Except for the Frostproof team, those were not particularly good teams when they played STA, but it did make life a little more interesting.

All of the following were regular season games STA played against FL teams from outside Dade/Broward/Palm Beach over the past 50 years.  STA won games except those noted with an asterisk.  Their only loss on the road was a 16-12 loss to Okeechobee in 1974.  

Bartow 1983(A)

Clewiston 72(H)

Cocoa Beach 73(A) - tie game

Coral Shores 72(A), 74(A) and 75(H)

Ft Pierce Central 01(A), 02(H)

Frostproof 73(A) STA won 7-0

Immokalee 77(A)

Key West 75(H), 76(A), *77(H), 78(A), *79(H), 80(A), 84(A) 

Melbourne CC 70(H)

Naples *82(H), 83(A), 84(A)

Okeechobee *74(A), *75(H) 

Pt St Lucie 01(H), 02(A)

ST Thomas went 9-0 versus Broward County public schools this year to run their record to ...

STA vs Broward County Public Schools   300 wins vs 56 losses (84% winning percentage)

STA vs All Broward County Schools          346 wins vs 68 losses (84% winning percentage)

STA's opponents this past season are a combined 29-111 versus STA.  Let's hope STA can do better than scheduling Flanagan and Stranahan in the future.

    • You keep saying they won’t make it, but both Trinity and Pahokee are sitting in playoffs spots. Both teams win one more game and they will be locked in. Anything happens after that. 
    • My team is sitting at 4-4 right now and going by the latest rpi we are in 10th place.  If we win out we have a shot of getting in but also might need a little help.  I look at some of the ones ahead of us rpi wise and honestly feel that we played a little tougher schedule.  Of course we have a few bad teams on the schedule that hurt our rpi,; games we won by blowout.   While the games we lost were to tough opponents and were fun games to watch, two determined in the last minute, I can't help but think the math works against us.  
    • Before you indict Plant or the system (and assuming this were to happen), I think you have to look at two things . . . in addition to the combined record of the teams that Plant has lost to this year (41-7; 41-3 if you take out losses to other teams in the group of six):  First, until the changes a few years back (3 years ago??), district runners up automatically made the playoffs.  Because Plant won its district 14 years in a row, it never had to worry about sliding in the playoff backdoor as a runner up.  But that would be the case this year if we were still operating under the old system that was in place for more years than I can count (and, again, assuming Plant wins this week).  Second, I think you have to look at the other teams in Region 2.  Take out the top 6 teams or so (for purposes of argument, Dr. Phillips, Kissimee Osceola, Lake Nona, Steinbrenner, Sarasota Riverview and Newsome and perhaps Lennard if you want to add a 7th team) and there really aren't that many, if any, other playoff-caliber teams.   Perhaps I have just proven your point and that it is the new system, and not any one team, that will deserve to be indicted if all that comes to fruition.  But just remember, the reward that a 8 or 7 seed gets for sneaking into the playoffs is a road game against the best or second best team in the region.  In other words, after week one of the playoffs, it really becomes a moot point.
    • How will a promotion/regulation help tougher teams fill schedules for non conference games?

    • I think a team that loads up on highly difficult teams (Trinity Christian, Pahokee) and wins half or less are definitely going to struggle in 1A-4A to make the playoffs. I said at the beginning of the year that Pahokee would not make the playoffs because of how difficult their schedule was. Trinity Christian the same thing. You can schedule all the hard teams you want, but ultimately you have to win some of those games. If 4-6 Plant makes the playoffs, I think that will be an indictment of the system, just like last year an 0-9 Gadsden County making the playoffs was.  

      As for playing 4 cupcakes, if you are a middle of the road team for your classification (Suwannee would be a good example), then it would be easier to schedule local cupcakes because nobody thinks you are going to dominate them. As a result, you end up with 6-7 wins and a good chance of making the playoffs.  The FHSAA is trying to find ways for tough teams to play tough teams, and because teams can make their own schedules teams can refuse to play tough teams or end up traveling 3+ hours to find a game. The reality is that promotion/relegation would slowly push teams to their correct spot.
