South Sumter big over trinity catholic.  

Considering that Trinity Catholic hasn't played a game this season what makes you think that South Sumter will defeat them big time? Do you know anything about Trinity Catholic, their players, and their coaches? The Celtics defeated South Sumter last season at South Sumter even though the Celtics were no where near the quality team they are today. I'm not saying that you are wrong or that South Sumter won't defeat the Celtics. South Sumter is always a quality team and are very tough to a player. We will have our hands full on Friday. Just curious why you are so sure that South Sumter will get the win especially since the game will be played at Celtic Field. I would assume since they came close to beating Madison that would be a reason. However, they struggled against 1A Wildwood the week before.

Sandalwood’s coaching is what holds them back from being a perennial state title contender 

Most people in North Florida know this but some out there think they know more about the area than people who are actually in North Florida

 

Columbia made it to the final 4 in 2015 with maybe 1/3rd the D1 talent that sandalwood has every year and yet people say we are poorly coached 

 

Funny how Sandalwood gets a free pass but Columbia doesn't even though Columbia has actually been moderately successful in the postseason this decade making it past the first round 7 times since 2011 while I'm having a hard time remembering how many playoff wins in total Sandalwood had in that stretch

Never said madison.  I said they were holding back against south Sumter 

Again you literally making my point clear. What sense does it make for Madison to hold back in a game no matter who it is. In this case you said they held back against South Sumter.

They is dude. They not central Florida they south. Look it up 

Since when has Cocoa been considered South Florida? That's news to me and I'm from Cocoa. Brevard County is considered Central Florida. Orlando is directly west of central Brevard and Tampa is directly west of south Brevard. Tell me this what is the distance between Miami and Jacksonville from Cocoa? Takes less time to get to Jacksonville. I know from experience

The only time that we played Pensacola Catholic, other than last year, was in 2010 when be defeated them in the 3rd round 21-14 and then won the championship. Went 14-0. Pensacola Catholic is always a tough team and well coached. Wildwood scored 30 on South Sumter. I think the only time we played Madison was in 2011 in the 3rd round. Madison defeated us 14-0 but their offense never scored against our defense. One score was a fumble recovery the other was a botched on side kick.

The stars were aligned for Columbia in 2015. There wasn't a strong team in quadrant one, just a few solid teams.  It's too bad that Columbia couldn't find a way to squeak one out against Viera though. STA likely would have hung a 70 piece on your Tigers.

Not our problem but it's funny it became weak when we won it but before the season people predicted we would finish maybe 3rd in our district and go 5-5

 

Besides our region ain't much different from what sandalwood normally has and they can't even make the playoffs

Let me try to explain what I think Jesse is thinking:

The name of the city of Cocoa comes from the word "coconut."  Coconuts, in turn, come from palm trees.  Palm trees are typically found in places like Palm Beach County and the city of West Palm Beach, which are both down next to Ft. Lauderdale and Miami, which we all know are in south Florida.   Therefore, we must ignore the fact that Cocoa is on about the same latitude line as Orlando (which means it's north of Tampa), and come to the indisputable conclusion that Cocoa is in south Florida.  Got it?  B)

Thank you, Perspective.  Now it explains why Brevard County businesses have been tanking so badly.  They have been marketing themselves as central FL businesses when, in reality, their customers are located in south FL.  This is tragic.

I would say Oakleaf and Sandalwood were the two most talented teams in the area last year and neither could make the playoffs. It’s clearly coaching. 
 

Columbia has enough talent on a year in year out basis to compete for a final four appearance, occasionally they have enough to win a state title. Whether they do it or not is up to a couple of factors, one of which is coaching

Exactly, OldSchool!  Jesse's been driving up and down I-95 from Miami to Ft. Pierce and can't seem to find a single Brevard County store that's open for business.  Tragic indeed.

    • FSU is baaaaad.    But, good for those Florida boys!
    • I think the people who thought of the running clock are probably the same people who routinely got their butts kicked when they played football. 
    • The running clock does not assure that a team will back off and avoid injuring players on the opposing team. Having officials fail to enforce the play clock during the running clock can add to the frustrations of players that are hoping to get some actual playing time late in the game, especially when it's apparent that the trailing team is making no effort to run plays in the prescribed time. I think the people who thought of the running clock are probably the same people that came up with participation awards to make every kid a "winner". 
    • I suspect the reason why there is a 'running clock' rule now is because too many times, the opposing coaches didn't see eye to eye on how many points were enough (or how many points were too many) - especially in rivalry games, or when the subs should start playing, or when timeouts should be called, or what plays are appropriate to run, etc.   To a certain extent, the running clock rule was implemented to save a coach from his own pride.  Remember a few years back?  In the third quarter, running clock was "optional" for the team that was getting beat.  It wasn't until the 4th quarter that it was mandatory.   But, too many 'old school' coaches felt like agreeing to running clock in the 3rd quarter was a sign of weakness or, as you put it, throwing in the towel.  So they refused to do it.   And the 35 point differential at the beginning of the 3rd quarter turned into a 50+ differential by the time the 3rd quarter ended.  Hurt egos are one thing.  Hurt players are another story.   I'm pretty sure that's why running clock now becomes mandatory at whatever point in the second half the difference becomes 35 or more.   At that point, it's just a matter of getting the game over with a little sooner to protect the players.  Oh, and it's worth noting that not all schools are as deep as others.  Some schools are lucky to have a full squad of second-stringers. 
    • One thing I will say about some of those 8A schools in the Orlando area is that they've either never had success or they have a student population that doesn't value football. Schools that tend to be large with a heavy population of Hispanic students tend to care more about soccer, baseball and basketball than football. It's mainly because their families didn't grow up watching football so it isn't as big of a deal. A great example is Poinciana. They are historically one of the worst football schools around but they won a State Championship in basketball a few years ago. So the athletes are on the campuses for sure. But if the programs have no history of success then the athletes see no reason to play. Another factor is the laid-back transfer rules. Now, kids can essentially consolidate talent on teams. So that also adds to some of these massive blowouts - especially when districts consist of teams like Cypress Creek being made to play teams like Osceola and Lake Nona. Of course they'll get blown out. It's going to be like that for the foreseeable future though.
