OFFICIAL WEEK 1 BOARD PICK'EMS THREAD

Recommended Posts

Thanks to @nolebull813 for stepping up to help run this.

I am going to go with most of the games NoleBull suggested except two. While I like the Rockledge/Ware County game, I feel like I can go better there. I don't want to overpopulate the pick' ems with the out-of-state teams and I think two is enough with the Miami Central and Aquinas games already. Also, I don't think Godby/Lincoln is going to be as good as looks on paper. Looks can be deceiving sometimes... maybe I am wrong.

St. Frances, Md. vs. Miami Central at Traz Powell (Saturday)

St. Thomas Aquinas at De La Salle, Calif.

Deerfield Beach vs. Miami Carol City at Traz Powell (Saturday)

IMG Academy at Venice

Trinity Christian (Jacksonville) at Columbia

Plant at Armwood

Jones at Raines

American Heritage (Delray) at Vero Beach

Cardinal Gibbons vs. Miami Northwestern at Traz Powell

Lakeland at Manatee

Thread locks down at 5 PM Friday afternoon, one hour before the first game on Friday which will be Jones at Raines (6 PM kickoffs in Duval County this year).

EDIT: Joe Pinkos Week 1 Forecast here: https://floridahsfootball.com/2019/08/19/joe-pinkos-joe-pinkos-week-1-statewide-game-forecast/

 Just for fun you should include Joe Pinkos  in the pick em. Whatever he projects will be his selections. Lol. 

Also, you think Manatee is going to give Lakeland a good enough game to make it a pick em choice?

And is 10 gonna be the official number? 

@Joshua Wilson i actually support this idea, ik on prep gridiron board they would use calpreps projections as one of the official voters so it would be interesting to see if any poster here can get a higher winning percentage than pinkos over the course of the season

I need to post the link to PInkos for sure and maybe ought to include his just for fun.

You never know... Jacquez Green is the new OC at Manatee, so you never know what to expect.

And yes 10 will be the official number to keep it easy for all of us.

    • There is no perfect system.  But, as you point out, I've never been one of those who says the whole playoff system should be geared up in hopes of have the two "best" teams in each region playing in each of the four regional finals.   There are just way too many factors to make that determination and way too many things happen along the road to a regional final game (upsets being just one of those things).  How many times do the top 2 seeds in a tennis tournament end up matched up against each other in the finals? How often do you see four # 1 seeds make the NCAA Final Four in basketball or hockey?  How often do you see the #1 seed in the AFC and the #1 seed in the NFC square off in the Super Bowl? More often than not, the cream ultimately rises to the top, but I just don't think it's worth the effort in high school football. 
    • no I said I was shocked you didn't have them higher.  I would have.  
    • Fort Myers girls basketball: State champs '16, '17 and '18.  Semi-finals '15 and '19.   Softball:  State champs '17 . Semi-finals '18 and '19.    
    • And many coaches and AD's have the same feeling and that's why when it was offered last cycle to remove the district champs getting top 4 guaranteed they fought it   But if you feel that way you can't them turn around and say the fhsaa isn't ensuring the best matchups are taking place if you also want the district champs to be guaranteed a top 4 seed, just the reality of it (yes I know you didn't say that specifically yourself, I'm just pointing out the flaw in the line of thinking when people out there try to play both ends of the fence)   Just like many of us knew when the Miami district of death was around that Miami Central, Miami Northwestern and Carol City were the best 3 teams in the entire region but only one would have a seed in the top 4
    • I understand your point.   From my perspective, it just shows the fallacy of trying to determine who the "best" teams are before the playoff games have been played.    Again, I see your point, but I'd have a tough time seeding a district runner-up over all the district winners except for one and giving a district runner-up the home-field advantage over all the district winners except for one.  Winning a district ought to count for something and penalizing a district winner (with a lower RPI and, therefor, a seeding worse than a district runner-up) because the other teams in its district had a bad year just doesn't sit right with me.
