SportsNut's South Florida Top 10 Rankings

Recommended Posts

Oh yeah, I just wanted to pass it on to @Mighty because he seems to take a lot of stock in the Miami Herald based on his comments.  Mighty did not like it when  I thought Dillard was between a #10- #15 team in South Florida,  because the Miami Herald had them #8.  Should be a close game when breaking it down, but something tells me one of these teams is really going to expose the other.

Well, to be honest . I don't think Dillard would have done any better vs IMG and STA. I also think Miramar would have played Hallandale tighter then Dillard. Finally, I think Dillard will unfortunately continue to be erratic the remainder of the season . Coaching and consistency appears to be the same the last few years. I think they have talent but I question Dillard offensively, and more specifically the QB.

After following Palm Beach , Broward and Dade the last few weeks my early season thoughts are  Broward's top 10 might be stronger then the Dade or Palm Beach top 10 right now.  Miami Central and BTW might be a little off early but will only get stronger as the season progresses.  Miami Columbus is still a very balanced team athletically, on both sides of the ball, and coaching. Jackson vs. BTW should be great this weekend....

  STA, Flanagan, Columbus, Hallanadale are very strong and AHP, Miami Central and Coconut Creek are 3 of the best 1 Loss teams in the Nation right now.  Out of Palm Beach West Boca is better then their 0-2 record vs .  a good Boca Raton team, and a very good Atlantic Delray team.  Glades Central will get a chance to show what they are made of this weekend vs. AHD.  Still not sold on Dwyer yet until they venture outside of their Candyland District against a decent team in November vs. Delray Atlantic.


Keep an eye on:

Boyd Anderson vs. Coconut Creek   - How will Creek respond (after a physical beat-down from Flanagan)  vs. a high flying, confident Boyd Anderson team

Jackson vs. BTW  -  Classic matchup with two teams battling for Dade pride!

Glades Central vs. American Heritage Delray    - Is Glades Central for real? They will be tested vs AHD who was just smacked around up in NJ.


Any other intriguing matchups I am missing?

Bro we been for real for the record like I said don't sleep on GC

I here ya muckboy561....I got GC top 3 in Palm Beach right now.  Delray Atlantic #1 and a toss up between GC and Dwyer.  Just want to see them beat a good team in AHD this week to solidify it.  I think GC wins a close one vs. AHD. After GC beats AHD, they solidify the #2 spot in my opinion.

UNTiLL BOYD ANDERSON PLAYS dillard I will have them below dillard just because of there WEEK....WEAK schedule are they playing inspired and confident ?? I guess its good to look like that vs SOUTH broward and STONEMAN douglas ...but I do know there more improved then we thought they would be.....I HAVE CC above halandale because I just believe there a over all better team until proven otherwise and I have MIRAMAR @ 8 because even though they have been blown out 2 str8 games I do believe that there still talented.

    • They used to teach sex ed at Columbia, but they stopped because they needed the car for driver's ed. 
    • They don't teach sexed in Columbia County?
    • For whatever reasons, I see a big difference between high school and college.  I'm glad the NCAA decided to give college spring sport participants an extra year of eligibility . . .  although it appears that the burden will be on the schools to find the money needed to pay for the players who will be returning for an extra year of college (perhaps a full year unless they sit out fall semester), the underclassmen who would be returning anyway,  as well as the new players coming in.   But it was the right thing to do.  And while many of the winter sport athletes (like basketball and gymnastics) missed out on what could have been the highlight of their career (like post-season tournaments), I'm OK with not giving these student-athletes another year of eligibility.  More of a gut call than a logical analysis.  But, while I feel horrible for the high school spring sport athletes, and remain hopeful that they will be allowed to complete their spring sport seasons -- abbreviated as they may be -- I just don't feel right about high school kids postponing graduation to play another season of high school sports.  I just don't think it would be smart/prudent/advisable to put off an entire year of college just so they can come back for another year of high school and play another year of  baseball or football (or whatever).   [As an aside, such a decision by the FHSAA would likely require them to change their bylaws and allow kids to play after they've reached the magic age (19?)]. As a practical matter, seniors who participate in spring sports, and who hope to obtain college scholarships in those sports, already have been offered.  Baseball and softball are both big club sports, and tennis is in a category all its own.  Lacrosse is still relatively new in Florida, but the better players already have been identified as juniors and/or based on their club play.  Same with even newer sports like boy's volleyball and water polo.  I'm not really sure where Track & Field and Weightlifting fit in, but I'm guessing the really fast and really strong athletes already have been identified and, if scholarships are available, offered.  I do feel particularly bad for the flag football players if they are not able to complete their seasons, as the sport doesn't exist yet in college (except as a club sport).    I saw something posted the other day quoting a high school baseball coach who claimed it would take at least three weeks of practice to have his team ready to play games again.   Sorry, but I call B.S. on this.   If I were a high school senior who played baseball (like I once was), you could have me game-ready in a week - especially if school was over or almost over and restrictions on practice time, if any, were lifted.  My thought:  once the FHSAA gives teams the green light to hit the field again, give them all a week to practice, have them play one or two games and then go straight into district tournaments, with all seeding be done at random.  Double elimination, if possible.  Yeah, some good teams might get shafted and some seasons are going to come to end way too soon for some teams and a lot of players, but something is better than nothing.  Anyway, I was bored and this topic seemed as good as any to stir things up a little.  I've put my thoughts out there.   What do you guys think?
    • Here is a message from the FHSAA.  They want to extend the season.  It won't happen but at least the FHSAA is not just canceling and trying to find ways.  However in my opinion they are giving false hope and there is no way this will happen.   GAINESVILLE, FL - Given the directive of President Trump to maintain following CDC guidelines through April 30, 2020, combined with Governor DeSantis and Commissioner Corcoran's mandate for schools in Florida to remain closed through May 3, 2020, the FHSAA will continue to follow suit with all scheduled FHSAA meetings, conferences, and athletic events postponed. Pending schools are back in session and afforded the opportunity to resume activities after May 3rd, by Federal, State and Local authorities, the FHSAA will follow the advice and guidance available to us at that time regarding the continuance of all FHSAA spring sports.   In light of the current situation, the FHSAA staff is actively working on creative solutions for the continuance of spring sports, which could extend through June 30th. The FHSAA does understand the hardships caused by COVID-19 and the inability to play spring sports. If we are not able to continue spring sports, the FHSAA is working diligently to create a plan regarding additional eligibility for students who have not been able to participate in spring sports.    The health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches, administrators, officials, fans and local communities are our top priority. We appreciate all member schools' cooperation in following Federal, State and Local recommendations and mandates during this time.   For the most up-to-date information, please visit the FHSAA website. The FHSAA staff will continue to follow the latest developments and will continue to provide updated information as deemed necessary.   The FHSAA office will remain closed following the Governor's recommendation. However, staff will continue to work remotely, during regular business hours. For staff contact information, click here.
