2016 Head Coaching News

Recommended Posts

That's hella good!!! Why would it be bad for Jackson?

Well, if I am not mistaken Uncle Luke has been a Def. Coord. for about 5 years between MNW, Central and Norland.  His Defenses have generally done very well.  Head Coaching is a different animal than DC. Lots of responsibilities....it will be interesting.  My guess is Jackson will improve from that 3-6 2015 record ( they were much better than their record though in a tough District).   The District will be much weaker in 2016 and I think Jackson can battle for that #2 spot.  If I am not mistaken Jackson's biggest problem was Defense as well so we'll see.....

AMH will run away with that District with ease. What is left of  Coconut Creek's best players are heading to Deerfield Beach and many of Hallandale's players are heading to Miramar.

Rumors are circulating in the Miami Herald and USA Today that Miami Jackson may have hired Lakatriona Brunson  whom will be the first female Head Coach in Florida History.   The other talk is that Luther Campbell "Uncle Luke" will be her assistant.   Both publications are emphasizing that nothing is official yet.

 

I smell a Reality TV show around the corner.  The county or FHSSA needs to look into this.  If this is the case, it is not fair for the  kids to take a backseat in their HS Football careers to a damn political correctness movement, or possible reality tv show /media circus act.

Rumors are circulating that Flanagan head Coach Devin Bush will join the Michigan Wolverines in the coming days.  Defensive Coordinator Stanford Samuels is expected to become the Flanagan Head Coach.

 

 Gary Curreri of the  Broward Sun Sentinel  spoke to Coach Bush and Bush refuted reports that a job at Michigan is almost a done deal.

Flanagan's HC Devin Bush is officially heading to Michigan. Bush started as a DC his son's Frosh year and then inherited an average Flanagan program, which he went on to build  over the next three years as Head Coach.  One thing interesting about Bush is he coached most of his players since they were in youth football.   Very few left, and in fact a couple came Home to Flanagan for their Senior year to try to make something special happen. Bush and Flanagan went on to bring a Public School State Championship back to Broward County after a little drought.  Coach Bush's  Flanagan teams were great to watch, particularly defensively. Usually undersized, physical and yeah- highly penalized...Bush's Dirty Birds to me represented what South Florida football is all about.  Thank you Coach Bush for a great run,  and best of luck to him at Michigan.

    • You keep saying they won’t make it, but both Trinity and Pahokee are sitting in playoffs spots. Both teams win one more game and they will be locked in. Anything happens after that. 
    • My team is sitting at 4-4 right now and going by the latest rpi we are in 10th place.  If we win out we have a shot of getting in but also might need a little help.  I look at some of the ones ahead of us rpi wise and honestly feel that we played a little tougher schedule.  Of course we have a few bad teams on the schedule that hurt our rpi,; games we won by blowout.   While the games we lost were to tough opponents and were fun games to watch, two determined in the last minute, I can't help but think the math works against us.  
    • Before you indict Plant or the system (and assuming this were to happen), I think you have to look at two things . . . in addition to the combined record of the teams that Plant has lost to this year (41-7; 41-3 if you take out losses to other teams in the group of six):  First, until the changes a few years back (3 years ago??), district runners up automatically made the playoffs.  Because Plant won its district 14 years in a row, it never had to worry about sliding in the playoff backdoor as a runner up.  But that would be the case this year if we were still operating under the old system that was in place for more years than I can count (and, again, assuming Plant wins this week).  Second, I think you have to look at the other teams in Region 2.  Take out the top 6 teams or so (for purposes of argument, Dr. Phillips, Kissimee Osceola, Lake Nona, Steinbrenner, Sarasota Riverview and Newsome and perhaps Lennard if you want to add a 7th team) and there really aren't that many, if any, other playoff-caliber teams.   Perhaps I have just proven your point and that it is the new system, and not any one team, that will deserve to be indicted if all that comes to fruition.  But just remember, the reward that a 8 or 7 seed gets for sneaking into the playoffs is a road game against the best or second best team in the region.  In other words, after week one of the playoffs, it really becomes a moot point.
    • How will a promotion/regulation help tougher teams fill schedules for non conference games?

    • I think a team that loads up on highly difficult teams (Trinity Christian, Pahokee) and wins half or less are definitely going to struggle in 1A-4A to make the playoffs. I said at the beginning of the year that Pahokee would not make the playoffs because of how difficult their schedule was. Trinity Christian the same thing. You can schedule all the hard teams you want, but ultimately you have to win some of those games. If 4-6 Plant makes the playoffs, I think that will be an indictment of the system, just like last year an 0-9 Gadsden County making the playoffs was.  

      As for playing 4 cupcakes, if you are a middle of the road team for your classification (Suwannee would be a good example), then it would be easier to schedule local cupcakes because nobody thinks you are going to dominate them. As a result, you end up with 6-7 wins and a good chance of making the playoffs.  The FHSAA is trying to find ways for tough teams to play tough teams, and because teams can make their own schedules teams can refuse to play tough teams or end up traveling 3+ hours to find a game. The reality is that promotion/relegation would slowly push teams to their correct spot.
