I'm sure you'd also like to place a bet that the sky is blue and water is wet. But... :)

The more STA loses to instate teams the better FL looks

 

In a perfect world FL teams would go undefeated in OOS games then take losses to other FL teams

They will eventually pass Bolles, probably sooner rather than later.  Bolles most likely won't be winning any more titles in the foreseeable future.

I thought the same but with them dropping to 4a and Raines up to 5a, they’ll be a very strong contender to make the state finals year in year out

I ain't jealous of them knucklehead 

 

Being from Lake City I've gotten used to the idea that nothing will be handed to me or to anyone who carries that Lake City name on their back,  we don't start season with over 20 players rated on maxpreps and 30 or so players with a d1 offer, we lucky to have 6 total signings on signing day with maybe 1 or 2 going D1

 

We may not have a deep Championship pedigree but i wouldn't trade places with them for a second, for STA a state title is just something they throw in a trophy case and move on from a day later

 

For me it's not the championship im after it's the chase,  no matter how many times i get knocked down and no matter how many times I watch a team celebrate at our expense I haven't backed down and I look forward to the chance to climb off the damn ground and punch that team right back in the mouth the next chance i get, I know sooner or later my persistent desire and refusal to quit will pay off and that 1 championship i spent years fighting for will mean more to me than any person at STA feel about any of their championships combined because to them it's one of many,  for me it's the completion of a journey and it's a chance to make one last stand and have one last chance to grab the brass ring to redeem all the failures and poor decisions by my City and allow this community to finally stand as Champions that we should have been a long time ago but could never make our journey easy

 

 

I'll take it the hard way because I know it will mean more to me than it being handed on silver platter every year

Lake City don't have fancy nightlife 

 

Lake City don't have beaches

 

Lake City isn't a rich City with skyscrapers and a huge university like the city a hour south of us 

 

Lake City don't have theme parks 

 

 

 

Columbia High School IS LAKE CITY and that's the way it's always been! It's what we stand by as our last stand to be relevant 

 

It's a Tiger thing and only a true Lake City prodigal son will know how we roll here ;)

weren't you on here 4 months ago listing all the offers Columbia kids had and how many players had offers?  Sure you don't have STA numbers but you have better than most.

The reason i listed it was because it was so rare i needed to

 

This is first time that I've been around Columbia (or at least i can remember) that they had at least 10 players with offers

10 guys with real D1 offers is a luxury only a few schools have.

Man it ain't jealous though 

 

I have no issue with STA and their success, I'm bothered that them constantly winning 7a has discredited every team in the class as being weak

I hope you’re right.  I work with a bunch of Orange County natives here in Atlanta and they swear this is their year.  LOL

Bruh go back and look at the list of teams I just mentioned that STA beat, those teams are worth mentioning because they're legendary teams

Just being completely honest, @VeniceIndiansFootball: I don't see how Venice stays in this game. They looked really slow against a Vero Beach team that ended up being pretty average. You never know, but if I was a betting man, I would bet that this one gets ugly. Hope I'm wrong--I will be on the Visitors side tomorrow night--would love to see a great game. Good luck to both teams involved.

Hey pal I appreciate the honesty. Unfortunateley, I understand why you say this. I’m acting really cocky saying how Venice will beat STA rah rah this and that. I’m worried Venice will lose this game simply because of their speed disadvantage. I’m not so sure it will look like the 2016 game. If Venice loses this game, I think it will be a little bit closer. I’m hoping you’re wrong. I want Venice to win it all again, but one never really knows.

I look forward to either Venice and or St.Thomas.

Spoiler

 

The Ledger writer mentioned Castle told him Lakeland has had some poor practices this week. If that's accurate, I'm more worried than I was. I do think Edgewater is better than Plant.

    • It's on there team preview page. At the beginning of the season, it was 35 hardest, remember Columbia was top 10, 
    • I'm just saying Rockledge is getting all the transfers now.  They already have 5 transfers
    • it is the same as maxpreps.  Give me the link please.  That 20.6 is there SOS.  It is not even in the top 100.  The 102-62 record of opponent is really good.   Madison has to play 1A teams which hurts their SOS.  Most 1 teams are not ranked very high.   26 Madison County (Madison, FL)   team preview   trend Florida 1A Region 3 1A 12-2 0-0 6-0 49.3 20.6 102-62
    • No real surprises honestly, it looks like it is spread out among numerous classifications and regions of Florida. I wonder what state title team since 2000 has the worst winning percentage over the same period as above. My guess would Nease or Jupiter Christian or Jefferson County.    
    • Here are the best programs to have not reached a state title game this century, sorted by their W-L Pct. vs. Florida Competition (2000-2019). Out of State contests are not included.   School W L Pct Vero Beach 168 51 0.767 Jesuit (Tampa)  178 58 0.754 Hillsborough (Tampa) 160 63 0.717 Columbia (Lake City)  164 65 0.716 Fletcher (Neptune Beach) 159 66 0.707 Largo 159 66 0.707 Fort Myers  161 67 0.706 Charlotte (Punta Gorda)  161 69 0.700 Lafayette (Mayo) 151 66 0.696 Countryside (Clearwater)  149 66 0.693 Hardee (Wauchula) 153 68 0.692 Dunnellon 147 68 0.684 Dixie County (Cross City) 150 70 0.682 First Baptist (Naples) 77 36 0.681 First Academy (Orlando) 151 71 0.680 South Fort Myers 112 56 0.667 Park Vista (Lake Worth) 109 55 0.665 Calvary Christian (Fort Lauderdale) 104 53 0.662 Merritt Island  149 77 0.659 Lake Wales 147 77 0.656 Winter Park 145 78 0.650 Fleming Island (Orange Park) 120 65 0.649 Winter Haven  143 78 0.647 Plantation  140 77 0.645 Pace 139 78 0.641
