Media day coverage & school by school 2019 outlook

Recommended Posts

A few years back I use to be able to go in Miami herald or sun sentinel around this time and get a lot of info about each teams media day, what schools to look out for this upcoming season ..district by district predictions now I can’t find anything.

jt Wilcox use to be on a website I can’t remember the name they had a lot of south Florida coverage as well even weekly predictions but I don’t think that site is up anymore.

do anyone have a clue where I can go now to get all that was stated above.

I see Sun-Sentinel wrote up about Gibbons and STA. Try clicking those articles, sometimes they bury info about other programs in the articles but don't mention it in the headlines. Most of their content appears to be gearing towards recruiting. 

SFHSSports is where JT used to work. They are still (barely) kicking around. Things went downhill when Josh Darrow left and then JT leaving really hurt them. 

Doesn't look like JT is doing much HSFB these days. Used to be writing for some small (possibly up-start) outlet. 

Miami Herald has one article which seems (after quickly skimming it) to at least touch on the major points for the upcoming season. 

I know NBC (6) was at media day, not sure what they published. WSVN (7) and WPLG (10) should have sent reporters too, though I'm not entirely sure if they did. 

I saw a tweet or two from Fox Sports Florida at media day so looks like they may have something. 

 

Palm Beach's media day was well-covered since 640 put it on and they have tons of interviews, I believe.

The changing media landscape is responsible for the decline in coverage. Most of the traditional media outlets are hurting financially and, therefore, don't devote much resources to high school football anymore. In the Orlando area, WFTV still does a pretty good media days. We will see how much longer this lasts.

They had about 2 to 3hrs of coverage for media day. Covering the scope of Central Florida.

    • I think the Armwood, Tech, Wiregrass district is pretty brutal as well.    Currently Laz has: Tampa Bay Tech #4 in the state  #1 in region Armwood #5 in the state  #2 in region Wiregrass Ranch #71 in the state #5 in region   Not sure any of them can beat Lakeland but it is going to be an exciting playoffs 
    • I was happy to see Eddie hit the game winner, but that roughing the passer call that gave the Bears 15 yards on their final drive??? Ugghh!   Horrible call in my opinion. 
    • The video is a couple of years old at this point, but my buddies and I have watched it as instinctive of what a coach should generally do on 4th down. It is also the reason why I loved watching Georgia Tech and Paul Johnson's triple option because of how aggressive he was in trying for it on 4th down (except last year).

      A good example of a lack of aggressiveness in hurting the team was the PItt-Penn State game. Pitt on the 1 yard line decides to kick the FG rather than try a 4th attempt from the 1 yard line. The kicker misses the kick and Pitt never really recovers. Pitt was down 7 at the time with 5 minutes left. 

      Interestingly, Denver went for 2 when they were down 1 at home with 30 seconds left and got it and Chicago drove 40 yards in 31 seconds to allow former Gator Eddie Pineiro to hit the game winning 53 yard field goal. 
    • Sorry Jimmyb, Merritt Island will be will be Vero's 56th regular season win in a row !
    • Many schools, including a couple of elite SEC programs, have claimed "fake" titles over the years, Bama being one of them. I'm a long time Gator fan, but I'm not delusional enough to believe the Gators could beat the UCF team of the past three years.
