Dont know why Atlantic (Port Orange) is on this list.  The HC there just got the job in August and from what I know he doesn't intend to go anywhere.  Also, Deland took the interim tag off Shelton Crews and he's the new HC.

 

Updated the list with some explanations. 

 

Welcome to the board!

The "resigned" guy at Atlantic was Buster "How many jobs can you have in a year" Davis and the resignation was just at the start of fall practice, as I recall.  New HC was an asst at New Smyrna Beach.  Tough way to start in a tough situation, but he's solid there now.  I'm curious on the Lopez situation.  N-J had an article back in October that he "might not be on the sideline for the Cocoa game" but gave no reason and nothing has come out on why he'd be dismissed mid-season.

What's the deal on 8 man teams transitioning to 11 man teams? I've posted in a forum or started one before and received little feedback. Even went over to coachuey website and got nothing. Just looking at a way to see if it's something I think can be positive for the school, the athletics, and most importantly the student athletes. Not to mention maybe not ruin my reputation within or out of the state as well. 

 

Why I keep asking-- because I've been contacted about being the transition guy, taking the bumps to make a program into something respected.

ive honeslty never heard of 8 man team, but i will say that most schools run 11 man teams, im not aware of any state, at least in this region that runs anything else, u might need to tell me a bit about this 8 man team then i can give a accurate assessment

It's pretty popular among smaller private schools and schools who are young and new and still creating their image as a school and a program. I believe it's through FCAPS, I know it's not through FHSAA.

Has anybody heard if a coaching change was made at Hollywood Hills, I noticed Al Lang was up in the press box the second half of the season and someone else leading the team and acting as if he was the head coach?

I did not hear anything about it. He has been there a while now. MaxPreps has the coach listed as N/A  http://www.maxpreps.com/high-schools/hollywood-hills-spartans-(hollywood,fl)/football/schedule.htm

 

so could be a possible change in place.

    • The video is a couple of years old at this point, but my buddies and I have watched it as instinctive of what a coach should generally do on 4th down. It is also the reason why I loved watching Georgia Tech and Paul Johnson's triple option because of how aggressive he was in trying for it on 4th down (except last year). 
       
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbgqKHxzTfU

      A good example of a lack of aggressiveness in hurting the team was the PItt-Penn State game. Pitt on the 1 yard line decides to kick the FG rather than try a 4th attempt from the 1 yard line. The kicker misses the kick and Pitt never really recovers. Pitt was down 7 at the time with 5 minutes left. 

      Interestingly, Denver went for 2 when they were down 1 at home with 30 seconds left and got it and Chicago drove 40 yards in 31 seconds to allow former Gator Eddie Pineiro to hit the game winning 53 yard field goal. 
    • Sorry Jimmyb, Merritt Island will be will be Vero's 56th regular season win in a row !
    • Many schools, including a couple of elite SEC programs, have claimed "fake" titles over the years, Bama being one of them. I'm a long time Gator fan, but I'm not delusional enough to believe the Gators could beat the UCF team of the past three years.
    • If you've ever watched the Paul Feinbaum Show on SEC Network, in reality the Bama Fan Club Show, you would have seen a very upset host and most of his followers condemned UCF, and they continue to condemn UCF today. Kirk Herbstreet on ESPN mocked UCF at the time, but doesn't anymore. On College Football Final (ESPN), Joey Galloway stated just yesterday that UCF deserves to be in the conversation for the CFP.  
    • I don't know why I typed 05 06.  I actually meant 96 but it was 98 I remember that now because we played them that year LOL...  yeah it was ugly.
