Who will win each division Prediction Thread

Recommended Posts


I've seen Booker T. Washington once this year and that was against Jackson. Jackson played Booker T. Washingon tough as you can see they won 38-35. Now the score wasn't close at all. Going into the 4th quarter the score was 31-21 and they pretty much led the entire game. I will say this and I take nothing from Glades Central much respect towards the muck, however beating the breaks off of Clewiston, Palm Beach Lakes, Palm Beach Central and Seminole Ridge isn't going to cut it. Them F-5 boys have played a tough schedule thus far and at 5-5 with a new head coach, freshman quarterback and mostly underclassman is pretty darn good. Opponents just naming a few Northwestern 5-5 they had a hard schedule, Jackson 3-6 they had a hard schedule, Central 7-2, Columbus 9-1 and St. Thomas 9-1. I'm not picking a winner as for states because Cocoa and Bolles stand in the way, but if the Tornadoes can pass Glades Central then we call all start saying who's who's but 1st is Glades Central and I'd be highly shocked if University wins the 1st round.

Yeah, GC were/are the better team than University School. I believe halftime score for that game was 34-28 GC had the lead and went on to win 41-38. "Supposed to be 41-7?? You sure on that - University School did find a way to put up over 350 total yards on GC though with close to 250 through the air. BTW loves to throw....just saying. If the BTW/GC match up happens GC is going to be fired up to defend The Muck!

By any chance do you have head to head record vs BTW and BTW playing in The Muck?

Sure but the shooting the ball in air shot university out the sky. one interception close the door on there district championship hopes they thought were going to pull off a miracle like they did against Clewiston.we gotten better since then trust me. We are not entering the play off hurt. we are healthy. Booker T has never come to belle glade before and the other question must be a rhetorical one 2-0. It will be a good game this time

Slick something you gotta understand.Just because at team has been battle test doesn't mean you will win a war. I'm not denying Booker t wouldn beat any of the team we have. Personally they they would be 8-2 like us. If they couldn't handle Central or Columbus they wouldn't beat American Heritage or Atlantic. We actually would have came out Booker t schedule 7-3 at least. The tornadoes are not a bad team I've seen them play with the pass happy offense, the question is do you know Glades Central??? I'm not talking about our past I mean present???

I assure you we are not sleeping on BTW or their 5-5 record. Not by a long shot. Why would we sleep on a team that beat us twice in a row? I'm say don't sleep on us either. I'm not say this as a fan I'm being truthful. BTW better be ready for a fight every time we play them. We'lol get them sooner or later.

Muckowl2008 when you say "If BTW couldn't handle Central or Columbus they wouldn't beat AHD or Atlantic" are you saying that you think AHD and Atlantic are better teams than Central and Columbus? Atlantic is a great team, but do you know what a joke Palm Beach 8A is compared to Dade (and Broward) 8A?  Comparing AHD to Miami Central is just comical at this point.  You should know better than that Muckowl2008!

 

AHD at HOME could not even beat Oxbridge - Oxbridge at HOME could not even beat Carol City.

 

Delray Atlantic struggled with  Boca Raton and Dwyer. 

 

Teams that could compete respectively with Delray Atlantic in Broward and Dade:  Columbus, South Dade, Coral Gables, Deerfield Beach, Flanagan, Plantation, and maybe Miramar.  I'm not saying any are better than Delray Atlantic but when all you have to do is beat Wellington and Boca Raton/Palm Beach Gardens and you are magically in the 3rd round 8A Regional Championship, two games away from states...come on man...I actually like there chances at States because they only really to win need  two competitive games to get there.

I didn't say they were #1 #2 in the state or IMG but Booker t would struggle with both of them especially American heritage.I understand you favor Dade and Broward but we have good teams too. You compare Dade County wins over Palm beach and expect Booker t to do the same ??? Booker t is no Carol city or a Miami central. Teams like oxbridge, American heritage, and Atlantic can beat them.

I am not favoring.  It is what it is.  You know the top 10 teams in Broward, and top 10 teams in Dade are better than Palm Beach top 10?  Am I wrong when I say that, or am I "favoring"??

 

 I agree Booker T is no Carol City and Miami Central .  Neither is AHD, Oxbridge or Glades Central.  Just to put things in perspective AHD AT HOME was handled by Oxbridge 24-7.    Glades Central @ AHD was handled 35-19.  Oxbridge AT HOME  was handled with  by Carol City .

 

I think Atlantic would surely beat Booker T and Oxbridge, AHD, Glades Central , and BTW could all beat each other on given days.

 

I think Atlantic can play with anybody in Broward and Dade.  AHD is down this year.  Oxbridge and Dwyer on a good day could compete.  But number 5 in Palm Beach is what? Glades Central or Boca Raton?  If I put them against #5Hallandale /Flanagan ....please !

"Oxbridge AT HOME was handled by Carol City"

went up to wpb to see that - a good game

For the record, Ox and CC were tied until 10 minutes to go in 4th qtr.  CC qb Buckshot was ON that night ... one of S FL's best slingers.

CC - rush 128, pass 275 = 403

ox - rush 110, pass 148 = 258

no fumbles, no ints - few mistakes by either

against CC nobody gets out easy, Ox better than I thought they be

The game was close for 3 quarters and Oxbridge at Home had no answer for Calvert.  Had that game been played in Dade - it could have been ugly.  Your stats are very  limited for arguing Oxbrige had a chance (well, they did have a chance - for 3 quarters )  

 

Total yards is correct 403 but Oxbridge had 243.  Here is what seperated the teams though:   First Downs:  Carol City = 17   ,  Oxbridge =10                      ,      Possession time Carol City = 29.57     Oxbridge =18:03 

 

Considering no teams made mistakes, penalty yds were within 10 of each other, no major injuries/suspensions,  CC was Away on the road , had a huge Total yds, and definitive control of the clock and 1st downs I would say they "handled Oxbridge "  not with ease but- handled them.  

 

Oxbridge is a very good team (arguably the 3rd best team in Palm Beach) but they need a lot of things to happen to be able to beat the elite teams in South Florida.  Carol City is at least double digit favorite to them on any field.

 

 Maybe part of the reason Buckshot was "ON" that night was because he was not facing Coral Gables, Miami Northwestern, Norland , or Miami Central?

braden river and dwyer have reasonable chance of pulling a upset on south side of bracket, in our case we just need to take one game at a time and before we know it we will have a shot at it, we will continue to show what we have as a team week by week

I don't know about Braden River but I would be really surprised if Dwyer beat STA. Deerfield Beach, Hallandale and Flanagan are all better teams than Dwyer and STA had no problem competing with those teams. From what I am hearing though STA suffered even more season ending injuries in their last game vs. Flanagan who also suffered season ending injuries.

The depth of STA will still be too much for Dwyer to handle. People are forgetting that before the season started, it was being argued that on paper this STA team was one of the best and deepest ever. They were top 5 in most National polls. Remember, STA has backups being recruited by FCS schools.

I know I sound like a cheerleader for them but I am just making a case as to why I don't think Dwyer can hang with STA.

According to these broward guys Dwyer has no shot and they would no better than myself... As for your cats... Man F all that PC mumbo Jumbo your team is GOOD and is favored to win the North bracket which could come down to beating Lakeland or Plant.

If STA loses 7A, it is due to the injuries they have suffered. The teams with the best chance of taking them, would be Braden River (semi final or third round?) or Columbia in the title game. With that said, STA will still have the best chance of winning. However, like Peezy said, this may be one of the years when they could lose.

    • Last night, I watched American Heritage Plantation play Chaminade-Madonna.  According to their rosters on Maxpreps, below is a breakdown of their starting O-lines. CM's O-Line 6'1" 280    Senior 6'2" 320    Junior 6'4" 300     Senior   6'5" 300     Sophomore 6'6" 300  Sophomore CM also had a 6'2" 270-pound junior playing fullback.   AHP's O-Line 6'1" 280     Senior 6'1" 285     Senior 6'2" 315     Sophomore 6'4" 325     Senior 6'6" 295     Junior   Despite the enormity of CM's line and a HUGE blocking back, one of the top-rated rb's in the state or possibly the country could do nothing against AHP's athletic D(save one play) and got caught behind the LOS numerous times.  What's wrong with this picture? I think a problem is that these OL are holding way too much weight and/or don't know how to use their weight effectively.  There is a reason FL's production of top-tier offensive linemen lags disproportionately behind our production of skill players, , and last night's game was a good example.  On one play I remember CM's 320-pound junior lineman trying to pull and this "tiny" AHP D-lineman took him out so easily and put the big young man off balance.  Even if he had not been touched, there is no way he could have helped with that play because he was so slow. It was a bit shocking to see a "small" school with the line the size of CM's, especially when one considers that 3 of them were underclassmen.  Sophomore linemen weighing 300 or more pounds?  Where are we going folks.  Is the future 350-pound hs O-linemen?  When a 15/16 year old is already 300+ pounds, how much room does he have to grow into his frame?  I mean, is he going to be 400 pounds as a senior in college?   These kids would be so much more effective down at 250-275 pounds.15-20 years ago, , that's we typically saw, and those O-lineman could pull.  Today, many of these 300-pound lineman I see in FL cannot move effectively enough to handle an athletic DL like we see on many of the top-ranked teams.  Sure, a huge line on a 3A team is going to bully a lot of small school D's.  But it is a completely different ball game when they face an elite D like either of those teams last night displayed.  IMO, it is greed. People want that "college size" now, rather than let the kids grow into their frames. I guess the justification is that magical college scholarship that awaits.  What coaches and parents do not realize is that what they are doing to these teenagers can have long-term impacts on their health, especially kids of an ethnic background that predisposes them to heart disease, diabetes, etc.  This is not me talking, folks.  I have had this discussion with my cardiologist, who happens to be a big football fan.  "Aw, he'll lean up in college."   The damage can already be done from a health perspective.  All in the name of winning and/or a college scholarship.   I remember reading an article about NFL linemen who struggle with their weight after their careers.  Their metabolism gets used to holding all that weight and does not like giving it up.  Not too long ago, a lineman might spend 5-10 years out of life at 300 pounds in his career (while in the NFL). Now we have kids who, if they have an NFL career, could be spending 15-20 years (hs, college and pros) at 300 or more pounds.  Doesn't make a difference?  How about the difference between smoking 5 versus 20 years?  Time of health-risk exposure clearly raises the odds of long-term consequences.  How difficult will it be for someone whose body has been at 300 pounds for 20 years to live the rest of their life at 225?  I would imagine very difficult, except for someone who is extremely disciplined concerning diet and continuing to work out. I am not saying we should go back to the dinosaur days of 175-pound linemen.  It's all about moderation.  Some coaches are drinking the Kool Aid that they need a 300-pound line to win a state title.  And they are neglecting to educate these kids and parents about the risk involved for some kids to maintain such a weight. I speak from personal experience on this topic.  Back in college, I had the metabolism that allowed me to hold a lot of weight and still have abs.  I kidded myself thinking because I could see my abs I was healthy.  My blood tests told a different story...revealing major issues with my heart.  I learned the hard way that the "outside" doesn't always tell what is going on inside our bodies.        
    • Perspective, I will try to answer your questions.   1. The reason why officials seem to hesitate to blow their whistles is  because the whistle very rarely ends the play itself. Usually, the result of the play, such as a runner running out-of-bounds or a receiver making a catch on the ground. In those type of situations, a defensive player is not going to make a tackle or hit an offensive player after that action just because a whistle did not blow. Forward progress can be tricky, and it is usually better to wait to blow the whistle, and then determine the result of the play instead of blowing a whistle immediately which automatically ends the play. 2. The coaches teaching the players to play to the whistle is incorrect, and most officials would urge coaches to stop teaching that phrase. The result of the play ends the play, not the whistle unless it is an inadvertent whistle. 3. By the letter of the rule the officials do not have the authority to send out a player to the sideline. However, there is an understanding among coaches and officials of the idea of a penalty box, meaning an official can point out to a coach that one of his players is getting out of control, and needs a 'cooling off' period without drawing a penalty. The player then can come back into the game at the coaches discretion. I do not know of one high school coach who has every declined this arrangement. 4. That sounds like a blown call by the officiating crew.
    • I was looking forward to that Chaminade v Cocoa matchup this season. Hopefully they had a home n home setup
    • The Bloodhounds are a bit unsettled at QB, so Lake Gibson's stout defense was too much. Assuming Lake Gibson is able to play Lakeland next week (a big assumption with Covid), LG might ought to be a slight favorite. Lakeland has been completely shut down since Sep. 8, and won't be able to do anything until Tuesday of game week.
    • Thad Franklin got hurt late in the game. AHP has a very athletic defense that owned CM's big O-line. You would think Thad Franklin on a rainy night behind that O-line would be able to score, but no.  CM's O-line needs work on blocking. CM is a very formidable team in 3A.  But I do not think the Lions have the firepower on offense to be considered one of the best teams in the state amongst all classes.    Both teams have quick D's that will give offenses trouble.  AHP's offense needs some reps.
