Calpreps has St' Iggy's rated at 32, while Rockledge cracks the top 100 at 93.

I'm especially interested in this one since it is my HS Alma Mater. 

Yes, I transfered from Cocoa to the Rock in 71 when they opened. My loyalties are with both schools.

St Frances vs Venice should not be here. That’s a joke game. Venice will get squished.

I have a feeling that STA vs Mandarin could be another blowout even though the game will be played in Jax.

Note the title of the thread..."interesting"...does not necessarily mean competitive.  Is a great opportunity for folks in the Venice area to see what appears to be one of the best hs teams in the country this year, although it might hurt to watch.

I definitely know your struggle. I grew up in Cocoa and all my family basically went to Cocoa. All my siblings, mom, aunts, uncles and cousins all went to Cocoa. I was the first to attend Rockledge. So I'm definitely rooting for the rock.

If Edgewater can cut down on the mental mistakes and penalties, they will beat Marietta. 

Wouldn't be surprised a bit if Edgewater beat Marietta. Marietta barely won 10 games the last two years combined. People say they're a top dog in Georgia, but having a few good players doesn't make you a top dog. Would have much rather seen an Edgewater vs. Colquitt/Grayson/Lowndes/North Gwinnett match up. Colquitt travels to Trinity Christian in a couple of weeks. Lowndes played Northwestern and North Gwinnett played Armwood and we all know how well our state was portrayed in those games.....Not good for the state of FL. With that being said, Edgewater may go up to Marietta and earn a little respect back for the state!

I really don't know how good St Frances is. I watched their full game against Mater Dei and they didn't look that good to me. I know that Mater Dei is a powerhouse. But still St Frances, if they are that good of a team, should have done better against them. I guess we will know how good they are when IMG travels up to Baltimore October 18th.

On paper SFA senior class is more loaded then IMG (so if IMG is the unstoppable monster some think they are then SFA must be pretty good, they also destroyed Miami Central on their own turf)

 

Mater Dei is a clear number 1 team nationally so I can't criticize SFA too much for that loss as IMG would have suffered same fate

 

 

In addition SFA just beat NJ powerhouse SJR  28-0 this past week who was ranked top 10 nationally almost across the board

Best shot at an out of state win this week is Rockledge. I expect it to be a competitive game atleast.

The Edgewater vs Marietta game is very interesting but Fla schools haven't done well in Ga this season.

Mater Dei looks like the best team in the country hands down this season IMO. That St. Frances team is the real deal and MD had no trouble dispatching them. IMG/St. Frances will be interesting. I think the bulk of IMG's squad is underclassmen this season.

All I can say is what I witnessed. St Frances did not look like a top team regardless of who they were playing. Kept running plays that were not working. They also don't seem to have the speed that IMG has. I think that IMG will be ready for them. IMG always seems to have players that step up when other things may not be working. Just like Gennady Golovkin. One shot can change the entire fight and can produce a win.  IMG is also a team that has greatly progressed from the first game. However, they have to play and defeat SFA on their field which is always a difficult task. Columbiafan I know you'll be rooting for SFA but please try not to get too depressed if IMG takes them to the woodshed, OK. :(

If IMG is Golovkin then SFA Canelo. I watched the highlights of the game as well and SFA held their own for a good portion of the game. But if you play a perfect game and make the right adjustments against a team like Mater Dei, then there's no way you will have a chance to beat a team of that caliber no matter how good you are. But honestly, IMG vs SFA is a 50/50 game. Should be a great one.

Madison wins 35-17

Also highest point output so far by a team against columbia was Oakleaf who we held to 19 which was only time this season someone held Oakleaf under 20 points

 

 

I think the Numbers are about to turn Madison inside out because no matter which way i spin it the numbers in Columbia favor heading into Friday

    • Why can't sports be about more than winning? Why is it so important than there are county/district/regional/state championships? Aren't sports supposed to be a continuation of the classroom where character and leadership are being learned and developed? Yes, play to win, but if the season is delayed they can still develop those other qualities that we hope coaches instill in our young athletes. Those coaches can do that in 8 games or 15 games.  The best coaches/teachers take events of the past 5 months and use to develop better human beings and citizens. How many more of our players are more keenly aware of how a virus is spread than they were 5 months ago. How many coaches have talked to their players about responsibility of government actors (Federal, State, and Local) as well as responsibility that as a player they have to their community at large? Honestly, whatever option is chosen, the FHSAA should simply just cancel the state series If they choose option 3 (spring football season), I don't understand why there can't be sport season overlap. I will admit as I was more optimistic about what would be happening by August/September despite what some on this board thought. The entire process could have been handled better, not just by our leaders, but as a society. I was reading a quote from a college football coach who took all-star teams to Japan for exhibitions and the coach asked someone why so many people were wearing masks. They responded with they do it for civility, if someone has a cold, they wear a mask to protect their neighbors. The reality is that we as Americans focus on the individual more than society. It is why we play our bass and speakers at god awful loud amounts when driving through quiet neighborhoods. It is why we the hell that is Black Friday (now Black Thanksgiving). It is why we see people willing to transfer to 4 schools in 4 years for more stardom (forget the teammates you leave behind).  Honestly, I don't care what the FHSAA chooses. The reality is that I won't be going to football this year, I don't trust the local yokels to do right. If anything, this event has shown a lot about people and the sacrifices they are and are not willing to make. 
    • I've said it before and will say again any reference to either political side will be removed or moved to OT    I left the primary post up because it is very relevant discussion for the football season but the preceding comments were removed for political references which aren't allowed on the huddle side of the board   Sorry @VeniceIndiansFootball your post didn't break any rules however I had to remove it because it quoted a post that did and leaving the post up would have made no sense after removing the quoted portion     Also as for the topic at hand I'm not gonna pretend I know the right decision but I do know this, option 3 would do more damage than good to the entire athletic calendar and even though people say that football pays for every sport, I challenge any atheltic director in the state of Florida to show me proof of how much football income really gets shared with the other sports because I doubt it's as much as people are led to believe   
    • Football is definitely a hard game to figure out.  That's why so many people disagree on rankings.  Teams match ups are important.  Also you never know how a 15-18 year old kid is going to react on each Friday night.  East Lake obviously played really well that night almost beating the future state champs.
    • FHSAA No livestream for the next fall sports meeting Orlando Sentinel Article (8/8/2020) By Buddy Collings The Florida High School Athletic Association had an audience of more than 4,000 YouTube viewers on July 20 as its board of directors took on an array of coronavirus concerns and tried to pick a palatable start date for football and other fall sports. It was much the same three days later, with another avalanche of real-time social media commentary as the embattled board held another meeting via Zoom and YouTube. That digital discussion saw the board vote to push preseason starts back a month from July 27 to no earlier than Aug. 24. Round 3 is set for Friday, Aug. 14. It will be the board’s third emergency meeting, but this time the 16-person panel will meet face-to-face in Gainesville and the stands will be nearly empty as the FHSAA hosts an in-person meeting for the first time since the COVID-19 outbreak halted high school sports in mid-March. There will be no FHSAA livestream available and an association official said only 50 people, including board members and staff, will be allowed into the meeting ballroom due to Alachua County social-distancing restrictions. That has sparked heavy criticism as the FHSAA’s 700-plus member schools await the fate of fall sports seasons. “I was very disappointed to learn that we were not live-streaming this meeting,” FHSAA board President Lauren Otero, a Tampa Plant High assistant principal, said in a phone interview with the Orlando Sentinel on Friday. “The impact that the decisions we are making have on our students and our schools across the state is so important to so many. Given the fact that the two prior meetings were broadcast it didn’t dawn on me that this one would not be.” Otero said she emailed FHSAA executive director George Tomyn on Thursday asking for the meeting to be streamed to the public in some manner. “Mr. Tomyn told me there would be no broadcast,” Otero said. The meeting is set for 10 a.m. at the Best Western Gateway Grand. That hotel is close to association headquarters and has been used regularly for larger FHSAA events, including Hall of Fame induction ceremonies. Media outlets are complaining loudly about lack of access. Some have suggested the FHSAA will not be following Florida Sunshine Law guidelines because few media members will be granted entry and others will not be able to hear the proceedings. “I’m not trying to avoid anything,” Tomyn told the Sentinel on Friday. “This is how we decided to do things because this is the customary arrangement for our meetings. Social-distancing requirements mean we cannot accommodate as many people, but this is our standard meeting procedure. We’re an athletic association, not a broadcasting company.” The FHSAA is not a government entity, but it has long stated that it abides by Florida Sunshine Law standards, which mandate that all meetings of state, county or municipal agencies be open to the public. An association bylaws states, “All FHSAA meetings are conducted in compliance with the Florida Sunshine Law.” Tomyn said the FHSAA will not be in violation. “We do follow the Sunshine Laws. I’ve talked to our attorney, Leonard Ireland, at length and we feel very comfortable that we continue to follow the requirements,” Tomyn said. “There has to be availability for public input. We are providing for that.” The FHSAA has an email address, questions@fhsaa.org , set up for anyone who wants to offer suggestions or ask questions. Those must be received prior to 8 a.m. on Aug. 14 to be shared with all board members for consideration. Its Friday announcement stated individuals who wish to speak to the board can attend the meeting and sign up on site prior to the start of the meeting. Tomyn said those who attend will likely be allowed into the ballroom for several minutes to make statements, then will go back out to allow room for the next guest. Prior to the coronavirus outbreak, the FHSAA held directors’ meetings five times per year, without webcasts, in its board room. Those meetings were open to the public with opportunities for guests to address the board. Tomyn said full minutes will be taken and the meeting will be audio-taped by the FHSAA, as is the norm. But those transcripts are typically not made immediately available to media or others. The meeting was initiated by Citrus County School Board member Doug Dodd, who submitted a motion that asked the FHSAA board to reconvene in person by Aug. 17. His measure, which passed by an 11-4 vote, was designed to give FHSAA staff time to confer with the fall sports advisory committees and prepare return-to-play options for the board to consider. FHSAA administrators held online meetings last week with the athletic directors committee and coaches committees for football, girls volleyball, cross country, golf and swimming. Each committee was presented a document that listed three options, one of which would delay fall practices until Nov. 30 and shift postseason play for those sports into January and February. Another would keep Aug. 24 as time for fall sports tryouts and a third is built around starting in September or later. The board could choose to approve one of those plans or consider others.
