So Columbia shouldn’t have been in your top 50 all year?   6A north is not good.  I’ve said that all year.

If Escambia don't beat Lee by 21+ than Escambia needs to be dropped from the top 25

Yep.  Works both ways for sure.  Gainesville would be the best place.  They have had them there before.

The first half of the year yes but it seemed every week they got worse. When u cant even line up right theres no way you can execute the play, and that's on the coach. Everyone I was sitting with at the game was like do they even practice these plays.

I don't understand Lee is a good team why would escambia have to do anything other than win in the regional finals to maintain or even improve their ranking?

Lee's defense is very good and will keep them in most any game.  Their offense has to manufacture points, which is never good.  If travel weren't involved I would give Lee a shot.  Escambia will be the win the north for one reason only........I-10.  It is the road that kills dreams.  It has been that way for decades.  I wish there were a stat on how teams fare having to make that trip either direction.  I would bet the visiting teams have won very few of those contests.

It is also the road that seems to kill state champ dreams for a lot of panhandle team. As much as I hate to admit it, Jacksonville or Gainesville is probably the best place for state games. No more than 5 hours for anyone (except maybe Lee, Collier, and Monroe).

Escambia is 9-1 at home in the playoffs versus teams from Tally or eastward.

The game was closer than the final score in my eyes. Mainland's qb gave Escambia some problems, which forced Esc star rb Frank Peasant to play linebacker as well last night. I don't think he's done that all year. 

If Lee's offense really is terrible than Escambia should be able to win this game comfortably.

 

Lee QB (Sophomore) is very erratic and seems to have deer in headlights in the face of pressure, if Escambia can force pressure well they will either force Lee to focus on run or sub in the senior (who normally plays reciever) to play QB

Should Madison not be in top 50 since columbia handed them their worst loss of season?

There was a ? by my question but you refused to answer it.  It was not a statement.  Deflecting you are good at.  You said if Escambia doesn't beat Lee by 21 they don't deserve to be top 25.  Well if beating Lee by 21 gets you in the top 25 what does losing to them twice get you?

can't judge a season off one game.  With that said Madison lost to Columbia and Lakewood.  Madison would struggle to beat larger really good schools.  I would put them in the 40 range.  Plenty of top 50 teams have lost games to people not in the top 50.  Atlantic, Lee, North Marion are good teams not great.  I would put Madison in with them.  You went 1-3 vs them.  Columbia in my opinion would be about 50.

    • Maybe we could come up with fancy names to describe the teams that move up and down.   I suggest "promotion" and "relegation."  I have a feeling those terms might catch on. 
    • IMG absolutely is an academy.  In fact, "academy" is part of its formal name ("IMG Academy").   And arguably, in less than a decade, IMG has become the premier football academy in the country.  Clearly there is a market out there for such an organization.   But, let's be real about it.   If IMG is going to market themselves as a sports academy (which they do) and aggressively pursue elite athletes to fill their rosters (which I believe they do), that's fine.   But until the FHSAA develops a separate category of membership for sports academies, IMG really doesn't belong in the FHSAA.  That doesn't mean that teams in Florida can't play them if they want to.  They can.  Just recognize that IMG is something different than all the other schools who are members of the FHSAA. 
    • One downside there is would there be any way to ensure that classification doesn't become too large in terms of number of teams?
    • How about this: if a school wins its district, say 2 out of 3 years, it automatically moves up one classification level and the team that finished last over that same 3 year period in that district drops down one classification level. There are some large schools that are doormats year after year and show no signs of being competitive, while you have smaller schools, like Madison County that dominate in their classification year after year. It may take a decade, but I think a competitive balance that would result from moving teams up and down would be closer if schools weren't classified simply by size, but by historic performance. A state championship and/or runner-up could automatically move you up one classification, without waiting two or three years. This could help balance out recruiting.
