And STA isn't IMG. Try Again.

listen I wish the Indians luck. You can talk all the smack you want if they win.  A running clock from IMG or running clock from sta. What's the difference?

 

Your thread asked for an opinion. I gave it. You didn't like it. It's okay. I've seen Venice play this year. I've seen img play this year. I've seen St Thomas play this year. I just don't think the Indians have a prayer.

My issue is that you said Manatee would crush us, and it was the other way around.

STA will not running clock us. Don’t compare them to IMG, they aren’t the same and IMG would win a majority if they played.

Most people get jazzed up by STA but as a Lakeland fan I haven't found them much to get excited about... :)

That said, I have to say that Venice is very good and battle tested (which is apparently the only thing that matters to some posters here ;) ) and I wish the game was in Venice BUT I have to go with STA at home and by a good margin.

At least 27-13 ish range and maybe more. 

And no disrespect intended but I want to see Armwood's Defense have a shot at STA. I think STA will still defeat Armwood but I enjoy watching STA have issues and get frustrated with good D's

I agree. I guess if I were a betting man I would go with Aquinas, and yeah if they beat Venice Armwood will be very formidable.

Armwood is going to have issues with Edgewater's offense. They'll score because they have some balance. But Armwood should also be able to score on the Eagles D.

I doubt that balance will make any difference.

I'd expect Edgewater to put at least 17-24 on them. But game is at Wood and they play very well at home. Still seeing an Armwood win, but something like 27-21. 

 

I could see 27-21

But think 21-13 Armwood is where I would be.

I haven't seen Armwood this year, but have seen Edgewater play. Edgewater has tons on speed on both sides of the ball, and they have balance passing and running. At this point, every game should be a great game.

    • There is no perfect system.  But, as you point out, I've never been one of those who says the whole playoff system should be geared up in hopes of have the two "best" teams in each region playing in each of the four regional finals.   There are just way too many factors to make that determination and way too many things happen along the road to a regional final game (upsets being just one of those things).  How many times do the top 2 seeds in a tennis tournament end up matched up against each other in the finals? How often do you see four # 1 seeds make the NCAA Final Four in basketball or hockey?  How often do you see the #1 seed in the AFC and the #1 seed in the NFC square off in the Super Bowl? More often than not, the cream ultimately rises to the top, but I just don't think it's worth the effort in high school football. 
    • no I said I was shocked you didn't have them higher.  I would have.  
    • Fort Myers girls basketball: State champs '16, '17 and '18.  Semi-finals '15 and '19.   Softball:  State champs '17 . Semi-finals '18 and '19.    
    • And many coaches and AD's have the same feeling and that's why when it was offered last cycle to remove the district champs getting top 4 guaranteed they fought it   But if you feel that way you can't them turn around and say the fhsaa isn't ensuring the best matchups are taking place if you also want the district champs to be guaranteed a top 4 seed, just the reality of it (yes I know you didn't say that specifically yourself, I'm just pointing out the flaw in the line of thinking when people out there try to play both ends of the fence)   Just like many of us knew when the Miami district of death was around that Miami Central, Miami Northwestern and Carol City were the best 3 teams in the entire region but only one would have a seed in the top 4
    • I understand your point.   From my perspective, it just shows the fallacy of trying to determine who the "best" teams are before the playoff games have been played.    Again, I see your point, but I'd have a tough time seeding a district runner-up over all the district winners except for one and giving a district runner-up the home-field advantage over all the district winners except for one.  Winning a district ought to count for something and penalizing a district winner (with a lower RPI and, therefor, a seeding worse than a district runner-up) because the other teams in its district had a bad year just doesn't sit right with me.
