Question for Josh

Recommended Posts

Shut up LMAO

 

I actually dropped Chaminade to low 20s in my poll 

I can’t ask a question?  They lost and only fell one spot.  I need to know why because they are a pick em game and I know nothing about them other than they acquire players like the Yankees acquire  free agents

Sure you can

 

I was giving that response because of that little comment about me doing the rankings even though I have a much different placement in my rankings for Chaminade lol

They have some talent but are not as strong overall as the team last year if it helps

 

I actually picked Atlantic to beat Chaminade

Or did you pick them because they play Columbia.  I got to figure this out.

3 reasons for my pick

 

1 Atlantic is a larger school and should have depth advantage

 

2 Chaminade isn't as strong as team from last year

 

3 Atlantic may very well be strongest team in PBC and from what I saw of them they looked pretty damn good

I picked them too but have no idea why.

how does Chaminade stay ranked #7 when they lost to #22 this week?  Was somebody hurt?  Is columbiafan doing your rankings?

The reason I didn't drop them that much is because after looking at everything, it was very evident the officials played a significant role in the outcome of the game. I am not 100% sold on Carol City. If they lose to Atlantic that is certainly going to drop them further, but I can't fully justify a full drop after something that was not decided on the field. Carol City is struggling up and down and really I feel Chaminade-Madonna is the better team still.

Interesting.  I'd be interested to hear you elaborate on how the officials played a significant role in the outcome of the game.  

Admittedly, I don't have a dog in the fight, but I like a good conspiracy theory as much as the next guy.

Apparently, the video showed Chaminade-Madonna making a critical conversion on 4th down to keep their drive alive to potentially score points and the officials ruled that they didn't have enough. It is controversial and that is why I didn't want to knee jerk on moving them down many spots because of that and being a 1-point game.

Thanks for answering.  I didn’t see the game or hear what happened.  Sounds like  Chaminade wasn’t a lock to win even if they didn’t get hosed on a spot.  They can redeem themself this week.

    • You keep saying they won’t make it, but both Trinity and Pahokee are sitting in playoffs spots. Both teams win one more game and they will be locked in. Anything happens after that. 
    • My team is sitting at 4-4 right now and going by the latest rpi we are in 10th place.  If we win out we have a shot of getting in but also might need a little help.  I look at some of the ones ahead of us rpi wise and honestly feel that we played a little tougher schedule.  Of course we have a few bad teams on the schedule that hurt our rpi,; games we won by blowout.   While the games we lost were to tough opponents and were fun games to watch, two determined in the last minute, I can't help but think the math works against us.  
    • Before you indict Plant or the system (and assuming this were to happen), I think you have to look at two things . . . in addition to the combined record of the teams that Plant has lost to this year (41-7; 41-3 if you take out losses to other teams in the group of six):  First, until the changes a few years back (3 years ago??), district runners up automatically made the playoffs.  Because Plant won its district 14 years in a row, it never had to worry about sliding in the playoff backdoor as a runner up.  But that would be the case this year if we were still operating under the old system that was in place for more years than I can count (and, again, assuming Plant wins this week).  Second, I think you have to look at the other teams in Region 2.  Take out the top 6 teams or so (for purposes of argument, Dr. Phillips, Kissimee Osceola, Lake Nona, Steinbrenner, Sarasota Riverview and Newsome and perhaps Lennard if you want to add a 7th team) and there really aren't that many, if any, other playoff-caliber teams.   Perhaps I have just proven your point and that it is the new system, and not any one team, that will deserve to be indicted if all that comes to fruition.  But just remember, the reward that a 8 or 7 seed gets for sneaking into the playoffs is a road game against the best or second best team in the region.  In other words, after week one of the playoffs, it really becomes a moot point.
    • How will a promotion/regulation help tougher teams fill schedules for non conference games?

    • I think a team that loads up on highly difficult teams (Trinity Christian, Pahokee) and wins half or less are definitely going to struggle in 1A-4A to make the playoffs. I said at the beginning of the year that Pahokee would not make the playoffs because of how difficult their schedule was. Trinity Christian the same thing. You can schedule all the hard teams you want, but ultimately you have to win some of those games. If 4-6 Plant makes the playoffs, I think that will be an indictment of the system, just like last year an 0-9 Gadsden County making the playoffs was.  

      As for playing 4 cupcakes, if you are a middle of the road team for your classification (Suwannee would be a good example), then it would be easier to schedule local cupcakes because nobody thinks you are going to dominate them. As a result, you end up with 6-7 wins and a good chance of making the playoffs.  The FHSAA is trying to find ways for tough teams to play tough teams, and because teams can make their own schedules teams can refuse to play tough teams or end up traveling 3+ hours to find a game. The reality is that promotion/relegation would slowly push teams to their correct spot.
