WANTED: Story ideas and thoughts from the members

Recommended Posts

I am looking for some fresh thoughts, things that could have stories done without breaking the budget. I am looking for ideas from you all that could lead to putting in some new mojo to what I do. So this is your forum to share what you think I should do, could do. Even ideas that might sound crazy, just list them. It will provide me with some food for thought.

  1. Where are the Mr. Football now for the past 30 years?
  2. Where are the Football Coach of the Years now?
  3. An explanation of how much it costs to run a program (and why districts can't/don't do more to help). I feel sometimes the public at large doesn't understand the costs associated with sports. Additionally, showing the financial toll of moving games from Friday to Saturday morning (your tweet from one of the Jax games could help show that, especially if you had one from last year).
  4. Some one off stories about coaches like Uncle Luke, Lakatriona Brunson, and their impact.
  5. Stories about any female players (Bolles had a kicker a couple of years ago, and there was a QB in South Florida last year). 
  6. Maybe a coaches corner on a break down of a series of 3-4 plays that are designed to look the same and the coach techniques from them. Sean Sal
  7. A breakdown of a week of a head  or assistant coaches' schedule and how that continues into the off-season. 
  8. What safety precautions are required during games (ambulances, trainers, doctors) and what is the standard safety precautions?
  9. Who has the coolest logo?
  10. Who has the pettiest beef of all time? (Catholic vs Convicts of ND vs Miami) or at least the most fun T-shirts mocking an opponent.

1. What about schools and coaching changes how they have positively and negatively impacted the programs.

2. Players/Famous people  you probably had no idea where from or played at FL schools and their back story IE Khalil Mack- Ft Pierce Westwood, Trey Burton- Venice, or “Larry the Cable Guy” Berean Christian also a big time supporter of the school. 


Just some thoughts I had...

Thanks to everyone so far on the suggestions.

One thing I can say is this... if FHSAA media policy is changed to allow internet only websites (like this one) to institute a paywall, it will happen here. Not everything would be behind that, but some of these potentials could be in that. I am just issuing a warning now.

The reason I will institute a paywall is simple. It pays me for my time to produce the content, but it will also provide an incentive. Yes, I tried years ago with this, but I discovered my flaws when I attempted. In that time the FHSAA did crack down on this, but some new things are advancing here and could change that mindset soon.

If a paywall is instituted it will be for the content-only (forums will remain FREE) that is more feature like and exclusive to the site (not standard stories that others might have). My thoughts will be a 6-month and a yearly flat rate. No month-to-month bull crap. I see what The Athletic is doing and they are doing a fine job. However, I will still have to keep ads because they do help a little bit (but it is not as much as any of you all think... please believe when I say that... Google is not as clean as they say they are when it comes to giving publishers a fair shake of the revenue through their AdSense program). Speaking of such....if any of you all are using ad blockers... please whitelist the site. By blocking the ads you see, you are hurting my revenue and quite frankly my income. The server alone costs $100+ a month to keep things going here. I ask for that respect.

    • Bouie had  surgery (6 weeks) Muck Bowl/Playoffs maybe. Cunningham and Kinsler 2/3 more weeks (knee injuries)
    • Well then, our whole society must be ludicrous.  It's because of a little thing called loyalty, which sometimes gets in the way of "playing the best players."  All you bosses out there, tomorrow go into your workplace and announce you are demoting and promoting people based strictly on their level of talent, ignoring tenure, and see what anarchy prevails.   And them imagine doing that every year.  The real world does not work like this crazy little world of transferring we have going on right now.  We have created an expectation in our young people that if you work hard you will "get the job."  Well, we all know it's not that simple.  Maybe that's why we are hearing stories of young people quitting jobs because they haven't been promoted within six months of starting, leaving disappointed.  "Paying your dues" is very much a part of the real world, like it or not We like to blame the FHSAA for not doing its job, just as some like blaming the government for not doing its job.  As coaches and supervisors, its all about taking personal responsibility for our decisions.  Our jobs are not simply to play the best players.  Anyone can do that.  The truly  masterful hs coach knows how to build a team and build character in his players.  And understands how bumping a tenured player for that hot new transfer might be great for the short term, but disastrous for the long term.  How many of you out there would like working for a boss with a track record like that, knowing you might get demoted next year so that energetic young intern can have your job?   Do I sound crazy?  Maybe so.  But I say with the utmost confidence that some of our FL hs coaching legends of the past would not be waiting on the FHSAA to tell them what they can/should do or not do.  These guys had a moral compass they followed.  They made decisions based on what was the "right thing to do"...not necessarily what everyone else was doing.       
    • The play in question is the first play in this highlight collection. It is replayed from a better, wider angle at 00:51 through the conclusion. Best I can tell, they call it on the WR #10. What are your thoughts? http://www.hudl.com/v/2BjAPe
