Thank you Gadsden

Recommended Posts

you might have went 0-9 but hopefully you blew this point system up.  I hope the FHSAA does some real research and makes some major changes to the system.  Not just have a meeting and raise points for losses because a few AD's want that and think it will help.  They tried to make sure a BTW didn't happen again last year and now they have egg on their face with Gadsden.  Congrats Gadsden you might not have won on the field but you beat the hell out of the FHSAA.  I think you put a running clock on them.

For that, the rest of us should send them a trophy

The FHSAA is national laughingstock. They have never put the best interest of the athletes first. Whatever lines their pockets the most.

Greed from a bunch of suit and tie A Holes has made our playoff system a joke. 

I haven't seen a worst first round lineup in all my life. What a joke. There might be 3-5 intriguing games. The rest is watered down. Terrible shame. For a state that has the personality of playing top teams and having more heart and soul than the rest of the country, this is a grave injustice. 

Josh, if you remain silent on this glaring problem, then you become complicit

Josh has been the loudest proponent of this system. He will remain quiet. He won't criticize it at all. 

He knows the system screwed up. FHSAA screwed up by not having one additional tie breaker that says cat 1, 2, 3, and 4 wins instead of stopping at cat 3.

 

Again there needs to be bigger gaps between all category wins and losses.

Bonus points are a problem too. Should do away with them. Getting blown out and getting more points for the loss?

Gadsen has been outscored 352-93 this year in 9 games.  That's actually far from the worst amongst winless teams.

they won a coin flip so does that make them 1-9?  I wonder how they did in coin flips this year?

Again, I will defend the FHSAA on the points system. I can tell you with some degree of certainty, winless Gadsden County will very likely be a slight favorite over South Walton in the first round. I know myself and Kenneth Massey both have Gadsden by 3 pts. Curious to see how Pinkos has it.

If the system is meeting its objectives, bravo.  My question is simply, "Was it considered that a substantial number of teams with losing records could be playing in the playoffs by going to such a system and by allowing #5 and #6 seeds into the lower classes."  If it was and this was considered "acceptable," fine.  I am guilty of joking about participation trophies, but can appreciate if others are all right with it. 

I do have concerns about extending the season in terms of expense, distraction, ie student time away from the books, and repercussions for other sports, ie kids missing wrestling practice to play additional football.  When the government promulgates new standards, we have a process to assess the costs (time, energy, financial) of said standard and let the taxpayer and business know what the cost(s) will be.  I am not clear what the "cost" of this new system is.  If someone's tax dollar is helping to fund it, it should be more transparent.  Making fun for the kids by allowing more teams in is OK, but someone is paying for it.

I would rather them use you, maxpreps or pinkos over the point system they use.  i know plenty will bash computers but the point system is retarded

    • Perspective, I will try to answer your questions.   1. The reason why officials seem to hesitate to blow their whistles is  because the whistle very rarely ends the play itself. Usually, the result of the play, such as a runner running out-of-bounds or a receiver making a catch on the ground. In those type of situations, a defensive player is not going to make a tackle or hit an offensive player after that action just because a whistle did not blow. Forward progress can be tricky, and it is usually better to wait to blow the whistle, and then determine the result of the play instead of blowing a whistle immediately which automatically ends the play. 2. The coaches teaching the players to play to the whistle is incorrect, and most officials would urge coaches to stop teaching that phrase. The result of the play ends the play, not the whistle unless it is an inadvertent whistle. 3. By the letter of the rule the officials do not have the authority to send out a player to the sideline. However, there is an understanding among coaches and officials of the idea of a penalty box, meaning an official can point out to a coach that one of his players is getting out of control, and needs a 'cooling off' period without drawing a penalty. The player then can come back into the game at the coaches discretion. I do not know of one high school coach who has every declined this arrangement. 4. That sounds like a blown call by the officiating crew.
    • I was looking forward to that Chaminade v Cocoa matchup this season. Hopefully they had a home n home setup
    • The Bloodhounds are a bit unsettled at QB, so Lake Gibson's stout defense was too much. Assuming Lake Gibson is able to play Lakeland next week (a big assumption with Covid), LG might ought to be a slight favorite. Lakeland has been completely shut down since Sep. 8, and won't be able to do anything until Tuesday of game week.
    • Thad Franklin got hurt late in the game. AHP has a very athletic defense that owned CM's big O-line. You would think Thad Franklin on a rainy night behind that O-line would be able to score, but no.  CM's O-line needs work on blocking. CM is a very formidable team in 3A.  But I do not think the Lions have the firepower on offense to be considered one of the best teams in the state amongst all classes.    Both teams have quick D's that will give offenses trouble.  AHP's offense needs some reps.           
    • Lions had their chance.  Thad Franklin broke off a big run but Lions fumbled it on the next play due to bad exchange from qb.
