Venice vs Plant predictions

Recommended Posts


If the last couple of KOC's are any indication, this will be a high-scoring affair and likely a close game.  Both teams have some talented players.  I'll be interested to see how quickly the WR transfer can pick up on Venice's offense and whether he and the QB have been able to get their timing down.  The teams appeared pretty evenly matched when they played each other in 7 on 7 this summer, but I realize that doesn't mean a whole lot once you put the pads on.  I'm hoping the rains stop by kickoff, but this is a game that could definitely be impacted, if not decided, by turnovers. 

Only because VIF channeled his inner-Vince Dooley and picked Plant to win, I'll go the other way and give the nod to Venice to eek out the victory.  :D

Plant plays on Turf and its a good thing otherwise this game would be cancelled.  It could still be cancelled because South Tampa is a major flood zone area and if this rain continues those roads will not be passable.

Venice is a better team than Plant  . . . at least right now (and perhaps they will be all season . . . with Plant moving up to 8A this year, we'll never really know).  Venice looked like they already had played a handful of games.   They've got a big O-line and a couple of QB's that Venice has been able to plug into their system.  They've got a talented RB (Bowman Lite) and, as a result of the transfer a couple of weeks ago, they have two D1 prospect receivers -- both have good height, good hands and good speed.  If an opposing defense doesn't have two very good corners, Venice is going to show you which one isn't good early and often.   A couple of their TDs were big plays/busted coverage plays.  But, I could see the new WR getting frustrated if he matches up against a decent DB and the back judge ref doesn't allow him to use his arms to create space once the ball's in the air. 

That said, Venice is going to have to outscore good teams, which they probably will do.  The Indian defense was good, but not outstanding.  Plant managed to put up 30 points, but at least one of the TDs was the result of a turnover and a short field.  And, granted 2s were playing 2s, but Plant left points on the board at the very end of the game when their drive stalled deep in Venice territory. 

Again, Venice was the better team and they certainly deserved the win.  I'd pencil in Venice and STA in the state semis for the right to get beat by Lakeland in the finals.

First Vero has to get by American Heritage Delray who just trashed Dwyer 35-0 

Well Dwyer may not even be a top 10 team in their county this year so I'm not entirely shocked that AHD beat them

Do you think Venice will win this week?

Where is the game being played?

If it's @Venice they have better than decent chance. IMG has a tendacy to start slow.

The Indians would also need  a high scoring wide open game and not a low scoring grind.

    • But the idea of the USA as some sort of near meritocracy is a myth. What you say is less the case today than it was 40-50 years ago.
    • As you observed, I am sure, there is a macho culture that exists in law enforcement and the fire service.  It impacts attitudes toward everything.  About 25 years ago, I knew a young lady who was a firefighter.  She was injured in the line of duty, so she paid her dues. She was a married woman and worked throughout a pregnancy.   The firehouse, which was in a major metro area, did not have coed bathrooms.  You would think the guys would have some sensitivity for a veteran pregnant woman, right?  They were so cruel and did such heinous things to that pregnant woman, she ended up leaving the fire service.   
    • I used Ref (referee) because you are part of the officiating crew. I meant no insult. Regarding the police, they reflect the training they receive and the general perception they have towards the population they are supposed to serve. Back in the late 1990s, I took a well paid civilian job with the Sheriff's office of one of the Central Florida counties. Despite great benefits and a 40 hour workweek, I left that job after six months, and returned to my former employer (sixty hour workweeks and all with no overtime). I did so because I found the attitude that was pervasive there towards poor people in general, and people of color specifically, was difficult for me to deal with.  And this attitude was pervasive, it included almost all the deputies as those of color were not exempt. 
    • All Ik is .... JAX TCA ready time make it back to state this year ... they got about 8 kids with d1 offers right now maybe more .. and I’m tellin u all them TCA KIDS been putting it big time work this off season !!!! 
    • This video with Trevor Noah really hit hard on how society is in America. You can watch the entire 18 minute video but he hits home after the 8 minute mark of the video.
