Their strength of schedule is really bad. According to maxpreps, it's rated as a 1.4. That's the worst of the 6a top 10 teams.

Deerfield has not beat anyone with a winning record but blanche ely ...plantation schedule is weak STA schedule weak...tbh i dont give a dam how weak it is.

Can anybody with a tip of common sense say that we are the 8TH best team in 6A ..the same team who went 8-2 last year beat western at western went toe to toe with #1 in 6a miami central in the 1st round since we like to go off previous seasons.

Like cooooommeeee on maaan ....i never said dillard was elite thats not wat im implying but to say were not top 4 in 6a is blasphemy. 

There is no 6a north school that will beat dillard other then maybe columbia & thats a huge stretch at this point the same thing yall sayn bout dillard schedule yall teams are doing the same up the road...the bad beating the terrible so of course the schedules are gonna b padded & look Good.

You're too bent out of shape about some rankings man. It's really not that serious. If they're as good as you think, the playoffs will determine that. 

I know North Florida teams get a bad rap but Escambia is legit. They won't win state but I think they could beat Columbia.

Bent out of shape? Na cuz who ever we play we will b ready regardless ..but this is the same maxpreps system that is determining playoff spots & etc so i atleast need them to actually know what their talking about and not jus throw rankings together but yet havent seen any of these schools played no nothing

Max Preps is a joke in too many ways to discuss.

Dillard is easily top 4 in 6A and maybe higher.

Jax Lee is fringe top 10 and Columbia is not top 10 at all.

I pray one those average 6a Polk teams make finals against us so we can show you who "isn't top 10 in 6a"

I would agree Escambia is pretty good. The thing that will hold them back is their OL. They have good size but I don’t think they’re that good of an OL. Everywhere else on the team they’re legit, like you said.

It sounds like Escambia is the team to beat in the 6A North. But I wouldn't bet on any Polk team representing the 6A South either.

One loss and suddenly we have no chance to compete?

 

Escambia looks decent but honestly not even sold on them being best in their district much less best in 6a north

It seem like Max Preps just uses RPI to determine their rankings. Dillard's schedule look like the only reason they aren't ranked higher.

I'm not counting Columbia out but I certainly wasn't buying their #3 ranking either. They probably have about as good a shot as any team in the North at making a trip to the finals.

Honestly outside of Lakeland and STA who in FL has looked like a clearcut top 5 team this year for the entire season?

I can't speak for the rest of the state, but the class of Central Florida this season have been Seminole (Sanford) 8A, Edgewater 7A, and Jones 5A. All three have been dominating their opponents this season and should have a good showing in the playoffs.

All 3 haven’t dominated all season.  Seminole beat Lake Mary by 1. Jones lost to Edgewater and Edgewater lost to Marietta.  All 3 are very good teams that could and should make run in the playoffs.

Polk has two 6A schools(LGibson and Auburndale).

I will bet $$$ that neither one will be in 6A finals, and that would also apply to Columbia as well.

In other words your point is mute.

Who in the 6a North is SOOO far above us that we have no chance of beating?

 

Since clearly you think one result makes a team

Both Columbia and Escambia had close games with Pine Forest. Escambia's offense is better than Pine Forest and the defense is about the same between the 2. So you think Washington is the best team in their district ?

At this point I still think Escambia would be the favorite however I don't feel the gap between Escambia and Washington is as big as some view it is on a state level

 

Not saying Escambia won't win that game but I wouldn't be surprised if Washington ended up winning either

I agree Washington could pull it off but their offense is just not that good to me. Yes they're scoring 30 a game but they haven't really faced a solid defense (not good/great) besides West Florida and Milton. The PF game would have answered some questions but the game was called off in the 3rd quarter.

A 1 point playoff loss is the same as a 35 point running clock. #SeasonOver

Cause you apparently think Columbia isn't even top 10 in 6a despite every poll out there having them that way 

 

You also apparently feel Lee was definitively better overall because of one result even though many people I've spoke to statewide who don't care one way or other felt Columbia was better overall despite the loss

 

You also apparently feel they don't have the ability to win the North but you can't name a team who is clearly far enough above to confidently predict someone who would beat us

 

Maybe you should talk with your South Florida contact and maybe he can fill you in on Columbia and perhaps he can explain it to you

That song is being replayed again this year. "They lose a game to a team they are better than"

I watched about 10 minutes of Columbia film last year and even less this year to know enough about them. I don't need anyone else's point of view.

Nothing personal against the Tigers, good program, but unfortunately(for you) 2019 will in all likelihood end the same way 2018 ended, a playoff loss to a team you will claim Columbia is better than.

As a matter of fact it would be a miracle for any other result to occur. 

But hey miracles do happen.:ph34r:

So you admit you seen next to nothing about them but think you have them all figured out

 

And people wonder why I'm so aggressive in my defense of columbia, yet so many will say they not a good team and have seen practically nothing of them but want to act like they know the breakdown of them better than me when I've been at every single game, SMH

    • Last night, I watched American Heritage Plantation play Chaminade-Madonna.  According to their rosters on Maxpreps, below is a breakdown of their starting O-lines. CM's O-Line 6'1" 280    Senior 6'2" 320    Junior 6'4" 300     Senior   6'5" 300     Sophomore 6'6" 300  Sophomore CM also had a 6'2" 270-pound junior playing fullback.   AHP's O-Line 6'1" 280     Senior 6'1" 285     Senior 6'2" 315     Sophomore 6'4" 325     Senior 6'6" 295     Junior   Despite the enormity of CM's line and a HUGE blocking back, one of the top-rated rb's in the state or possibly the country could do nothing against AHP's athletic D(save one play) and got caught behind the LOS numerous times.  What's wrong with this picture? I think a problem is that these OL are holding way too much weight and/or don't know how to use their weight effectively.  There is a reason FL's production of top-tier offensive linemen lags disproportionately behind our production of skill players, , and last night's game was a good example.  On one play I remember CM's 320-pound junior lineman trying to pull and this "tiny" AHP D-lineman took him out so easily and put the big young man off balance.  Even if he had not been touched, there is no way he could have helped with that play because he was so slow. It was a bit shocking to see a "small" school with the line the size of CM's, especially when one considers that 3 of them were underclassmen.  Sophomore linemen weighing 300 or more pounds?  Where are we going folks.  Is the future 350-pound hs O-linemen?  When a 15/16 year old is already 300+ pounds, how much room does he have to grow into his frame?  I mean, is he going to be 400 pounds as a senior in college?   These kids would be so much more effective down at 250-275 pounds.15-20 years ago, , that's we typically saw, and those O-lineman could pull.  Today, many of these 300-pound lineman I see in FL cannot move effectively enough to handle an athletic DL like we see on many of the top-ranked teams.  Sure, a huge line on a 3A team is going to bully a lot of small school D's.  But it is a completely different ball game when they face an elite D like either of those teams last night displayed.  IMO, it is greed. People want that "college size" now, rather than let the kids grow into their frames. I guess the justification is that magical college scholarship that awaits.  What coaches and parents do not realize is that what they are doing to these teenagers can have long-term impacts on their health, especially kids of an ethnic background that predisposes them to heart disease, diabetes, etc.  This is not me talking, folks.  I have had this discussion with my cardiologist, who happens to be a big football fan.  "Aw, he'll lean up in college."   The damage can already be done from a health perspective.  All in the name of winning and/or a college scholarship.   I remember reading an article about NFL linemen who struggle with their weight after their careers.  Their metabolism gets used to holding all that weight and does not like giving it up.  Not too long ago, a lineman might spend 5-10 years out of life at 300 pounds in his career (while in the NFL). Now we have kids who, if they have an NFL career, could be spending 15-20 years (hs, college and pros) at 300 or more pounds.  Doesn't make a difference?  How about the difference between smoking 5 versus 20 years?  Time of health-risk exposure clearly raises the odds of long-term consequences.  How difficult will it be for someone whose body has been at 300 pounds for 20 years to live the rest of their life at 225?  I would imagine very difficult, except for someone who is extremely disciplined concerning diet and continuing to work out. I am not saying we should go back to the dinosaur days of 175-pound linemen.  It's all about moderation.  Some coaches are drinking the Kool Aid that they need a 300-pound line to win a state title.  And they are neglecting to educate these kids and parents about the risk involved for some kids to maintain such a weight. I speak from personal experience on this topic.  Back in college, I had the metabolism that allowed me to hold a lot of weight and still have abs.  I kidded myself thinking because I could see my abs I was healthy.  My blood tests told a different story...revealing major issues with my heart.  I learned the hard way that the "outside" doesn't always tell what is going on inside our bodies.        
    • Perspective, I will try to answer your questions.   1. The reason why officials seem to hesitate to blow their whistles is  because the whistle very rarely ends the play itself. Usually, the result of the play, such as a runner running out-of-bounds or a receiver making a catch on the ground. In those type of situations, a defensive player is not going to make a tackle or hit an offensive player after that action just because a whistle did not blow. Forward progress can be tricky, and it is usually better to wait to blow the whistle, and then determine the result of the play instead of blowing a whistle immediately which automatically ends the play. 2. The coaches teaching the players to play to the whistle is incorrect, and most officials would urge coaches to stop teaching that phrase. The result of the play ends the play, not the whistle unless it is an inadvertent whistle. 3. By the letter of the rule the officials do not have the authority to send out a player to the sideline. However, there is an understanding among coaches and officials of the idea of a penalty box, meaning an official can point out to a coach that one of his players is getting out of control, and needs a 'cooling off' period without drawing a penalty. The player then can come back into the game at the coaches discretion. I do not know of one high school coach who has every declined this arrangement. 4. That sounds like a blown call by the officiating crew.
    • I was looking forward to that Chaminade v Cocoa matchup this season. Hopefully they had a home n home setup
    • The Bloodhounds are a bit unsettled at QB, so Lake Gibson's stout defense was too much. Assuming Lake Gibson is able to play Lakeland next week (a big assumption with Covid), LG might ought to be a slight favorite. Lakeland has been completely shut down since Sep. 8, and won't be able to do anything until Tuesday of game week.
    • Thad Franklin got hurt late in the game. AHP has a very athletic defense that owned CM's big O-line. You would think Thad Franklin on a rainy night behind that O-line would be able to score, but no.  CM's O-line needs work on blocking. CM is a very formidable team in 3A.  But I do not think the Lions have the firepower on offense to be considered one of the best teams in the state amongst all classes.    Both teams have quick D's that will give offenses trouble.  AHP's offense needs some reps.
