A big upset weekend...Edgewater, STA, Venice...


Recommended Posts

Looked like this was a rough weekend for some big names. 

American Heritage 41 Venice 26 

Cardinal Gibbons 17 STA 10 (these guys need to play more often)

Jones 31  Edgewater 13

Did I miss any? A weekend that makes High School Football great!

 

And just for full disclosure Lakeland got it's butt kicked again Bloomingdale 39 LHS 14

 Literally not one of these games is considered an upset.

An upset would imply that an inferior team beat a superior team. There is no evidence to support this at the moment. 

I tend to think of an "upset" as when the underdog team (especially a double-digit points underdog) beats the favored team.  To my knowledge, there are no odds-makers for Florida high school sports.   The closest thing would be Joe Pinko's.  For what it's worth, Pinko's had STA "favored" by 3 and Edgewater favored by 6.  Those spreads are close enough that I would not really call either the win by Cardinal Gibbons or the win by Jones an upset.  Venice, on the other hand, was favored by 17.   So, I think you could safely call that one an upset -- assuming your willing to accept the Pinko's "line." 

Pinko's is still running a little higher than 80% correct in terms of predicting the winner.   Power ranking differential (which, I believe, translates to the projected point difference -- or what we think of as a point spread) is going to be particularly difficult this year because of Covid.    Depending on quarantine rules, the players that take the field one week for a particular team may be quite different than the players who take the field for the same team a week or two later.
