Teams with Bad Records Who Could Make the Playoffs?

Recommended Posts

Last year, a winless Gadsden team made the playoffs.  Could another team with a bad record make the playoffs this year?  Here are some front runners for the honor, based on current RPI ranking:

4A-R1   #6 seed Bradford is 1-4

4A-R3   #7 seed Lemon Bay is 0-7

3A-R2    #6 seed First Academy is 1-4

1A-R4     #7 seed Pahokee is 1-4

Probably but that's what happens when you got regions ranging from 9-12 teams

 

Solution

 

MAKE 1A 2 REGIONS INSTEAD OF 4

 

I can't believe fhsaa didn't even consider combining the regions in smaller classes to fix this issue

Pahokee is not getting in.  They maybe go 2-2 over the next 4 and that is a big time maybe.  I said it at the beginning of the season that Pahokee was going to have the same thing happen to them that happened to BTW (Miami) a couple of seasons ago. The schedule is too tough and you lose one too many games.

Pahokee barley beat a very bad Dwyer team

 

They may not even be a top 6 team in that region this year schedule or not

Maybe 1a is all trash except for Madison county. Madison is on Columbia level. Madison JV needs a playoff spot.

Well Madison lost by 11 after Columbia turned ball over 3 times 

 

I wouldn't say on Columbia level but Madison is definitely tiers better than the rest of 1a

Yeah, for real I think Madison JV could make a run. They beat Columbia JV.

Facts. Even Bayside would make the playoffs if they were in 1A. Astronaut would make a run. Along with Holy Trinity this season

Yes they would score 50 a game. Madison be scoring 50 and 60 all day. I don't like most them sorry 1a schools. Very embarrassing to be in Florida of all states.

Better chance Pahokee is the best team in that region than not one of the top 6.

Trust me the fans could play In 1a. JV teams would kill them.i watch 1a games all the time. Horrible it's like watching people with no skills play. It's a joke of a class in Florida.

A 5-4 or 4-5 Mainland will be a #4 seed. Time for some changes.....hurtfully, just saying

Wouldn't they have hosted a first round game under any system as a district champion? I mean the original system of district winner/runner-up they still are hosting a first round game and maybe a 2nd depending on the year. So how is this system different? Now, if a 5-4 Mainland team gets in the playoffs as a #8 seed then you might have a better example of why this system isn't better.

Simple

 

There is actually seeding

 

Old system "seeding" had 9-1 Columbia below 4-6 Lincoln when columbia had beaten Lincoln at their place already that season

 

Seeding is needed!

My bad, for not explaining myself. I wasn't questioning the current playoff formula (although I agree the format needs tweaking at the least). Just the fact that in an extremely weak district, Mainland (my heart and soul) still earns a top four position in a region with a very poor season under way. Only Lakeland High, of all public Florida high schools, has been to the FHSAA playoffs in more consecutive current seasons. Lakeland 26 yrs, Mainland 25 yrs in a row. My call for "change" was sadly in house , not state wide....Buc Forever

 Mainland is not that bad of a team. I could see them winning 1 or 2 games in the playoffs.

We did but that should have been a home game for us

 

Those playoff games are only good crowd numbers we get and that money helps Columbia with keeping up with much financially stronger programs

 

 

That extra playoff game cost us several grand since we would have gotten much bigger crowd in lake City then Lincoln who didn't even look to bring 1k to a home playoff game
