Other than the smallest and largest classifications all won by privates (Central Rockets operate like a private).  They should have their own league, but maybe I am preaching to the choir.

Inevitable!  However, I FULLY expected the public schools to load up and balance everything out.  If your school is public/private and is a have not, you're screwed, LOL!

Wheres the evidence showing that they don't have an enrollment that's MORE THAN MOST 4A schools. Reading is fundamental. No where in the context did they say Madison has a larger enrollment than 4A that would put them at 5A enrollment.

Feel free to disagree, but I think the FHSAA needs to get their act together and cut back from 8 classes to no more than 6 or 5. There is no reason that schools whom struggle to field football teams year-in and year-out with marginally smaller enrollment pools should have to compete with larger schools who have upwards of 3X their enrollment. (I.e, 1A schools like Chiefland, Baker, or Union County having to compete with Madison County.) Or, similarly, even what happened to Hallandale in 5A this year. Looking at all of their transfers, they just can’t compete with the Centrals or even their local rivals due to minuscule enrollment numbers interfering with their talent pool.

I’m not saying that cutting classifications will have massive implications in enrollment numbers, but having more opponents in each classification in an expanded playoff format would increase the likelihood that big private schools or even larger metro publics would have more competition and more even matchups. This would eliminate games like Madison County vs Baker (a complete mismatch,) and replace them with something like Madison County vs Cocoa, or a team like Viera or Rockledge. In my opinion, a much more fair and even matchup for both schools that may even prove to be a competitive ballgame with more fan involvement. Would make HSFB more fun overall and make matchups more worthwhile to see. Just my 2 cents.

I see READING is NOT fundamental…COMPREHENSION is….this is from HS Football Live’s twitter…NOT MY FEELINGS/VIEWS! I just shared the information from the tweet. 
 

Hawthorne has a 1A enrollment, but when you get 10+ transfers (compare the last 2 years rosters) it is what it is. Madison also has 1A enrollment, but they also can pull from their charter school (who’s #s don’t count for them).

They could beat Venice but it wouldn’t be easy.  They would have to play their best possible game all year and hope Venice made some crucial errors. Just a really tough ask, especially with how well Venice played this year.

Thank you. Everyone else was trying to say madison would get crushed.  But talent wise madison isn't that far away. Madison has some great players on defense

Let me preface this by saying, I’m not attacking you (sometimes you’re a little over the top defensive). Jesse, most folks recognize Madison is an extremely talented program. They just are pointing out they don’t believe Madison should be with 1A.

Careful. Venice might end up in the same class as STA, LOL!  Seriously, I agree with what you, @nolebull813 and a few others have been saying.  This situation didn't happen overnight and although the solution provided by many (yourself included) may be easy on screen, I won't talk about how difficult it will be to convince the FHSAA to consider, let alone reverse their stance.  Remember, we are 17 years into an 8-class system and although the names and cutoff number have evolved, the underlying issue is still the same.  It seems that the easy choice to combat the rising number of schools is to instinctively add more classes which makes sense to a degree.

If I had my way, I would recommend that Florida not only reduce the number of classes but create dynamic classes not based on population but productivity.  In other words, Teams move up if they are in the top 20%-25% which would naturally include all state champions and runner-ups.  The bottom 20%-25% would move down.  I'll breakdown the numbers based on 2021 season shortly.

It would be BRUTAL,  but what about an open division? Leave the rest alone. Or, 2 open divisions, one public one private?  If you provide opportunity for "other" programs to succeed, maybe the whole ship rises with the tide? The result of a 2 to 4 year test certainly won't make things worse.

Coach Peacock sent out a tweet about 2 weeks ago saying Venice had about 6 open weeks on next year's schedule. Just sayin'....

No. We have bigger fish to fry than Madison County. IMG, Cocoa, STA, Manatee, American Heritage, and a possible rematch with Cardinal Gibbons would all be 6 better choices for opponents than that little 1A school.

    • With me you know that you will always get a solid, straight answer that you can take to the bank and exchange for cash! In fact, it is same to assume that most message board posters would agree with the quote "That Jambun82 knows what he is talking about" You're welcome for that Perspective.  
    • Thanks Jambun (and thanks for the correction on PF vs UNS).  But, I guess it's like my Momma always told me:  "Officials are like a box of chocolates . . . you never know what you're going to get."  
    • Perspective, the foul would be an Unsportsmanlike Conduct penalty, not a Personal Foul penalty. Obviously, every official has a different level of tolerance for an objection to a call by a coach or player. The NFHS rules states that a UNS Conduct foul by a non-player includes, but is not limited to, disrespectfully addressing or trying to influence a decision by an official. That is very broad, as you would already know in legalize terms. Certain Coaches reputation procedes them, and the language used by the coach has an effect obviously. Good Head Coaches will instruct their assistant coaches not to voice any objections or complaints to the officials, and a good sideline official will mention to the Head Coach in the pregame that he/she only wants to communicate with the Head Coach. I suppose that the situation comes down to the individual officials tolerance level, with good officials realizing and respecting that Coaches spend all week preparing for a emotional game where circumstances will come up where leeway should be given, and not everything is black and white. It is a fine balancing act.  
    • Jambun, I had to laugh when I read the phrase that the team who got penalized for the PF "must have voiced some sort of objection."   So, with that in mind, and recognizing that all officials have different tolerance levels, what's the general rule of thumb for when words and/or actions rise to the level of a personal foul?   Clearly, coaches voice their displeasure with calls (and non-calls) all the time without triggering a PF.  What's the trigger?   Curse words?  Volume level?  Continuing beyond a certain point (i.e., after the official looks over and says "that's enough, Coach")?  Do you/officials tend to give a coach a little more leeway if you/they start having reservations about the call in dispute? Last, and looking at it from the other side of the issue, what's the most effective way a coach can communicate to an official that he 'respectfully disagrees' with the call that just got made/missed?
