    That has nothing to do with the topic.
  3. Schedules

    Is that why 2 years ago they had no backup plan for a unexpected need to change the venue at the state finals?
  4. Schedules

    As much crap we give Ga. posters, the GHSA is always on point. The FHSAA knows what they need to do, but the problem with doing the right thing is it makes too much sense.

  6. Trinity Catholic 2019 Season

    Does anyone know if Celtic QB Dominac Brinser transferred to North Marion? He was on the Celtic's roster in early May and now he is on the North Marion roster. I thought he was being primed as the starting QB for Trinity this season and he looks good in his Hudl videos.
  7. Schedules

    I understand that but that's why I'm saying I'm against there being a deadline for schedules We can't control that so many teams have no interest in playing us (even though many players on those teams will always talk crap on social media about being better than us and us being garbage yet are not gonna put money where their mouth is) We are gonna need every second possible to find games I think long term this is going to force us to have to travel to Central or South FL or even OOS in the future to get games scheduled since many in North Florida will not want to play them (in other words we will have to follow the blueprint of TCA schedule to find games which I'm personally fine with as it will get us a lot of respect for playing those kind of games) I guess the same could be said locally for Lake City middle who since merging Richardson and LCMS has not been welcomed in their previous conference (even though both schools were in the conference when they were 2 separate schools) and have to now play South GA schools to get some games as they playing lowndes middle and Valdosta middle this fall I get what you saying @gatorman-uf but I just wish some schools in North Florida had the same attitude that those Broward and Dade schools had of taking on any challenge and not worrying about wins or losses in the process because any game against top level competition will build toughness and gain respect
  8. Schedules

    The following are games played by Trinity Christian against Duval County teams over the past 10 years that were not in their district. Most of the time, Trinity Christian hasn't been playing those games. And I understand why large schools in big metro areas don't want to play Trinity, they can play other public schools, keep the money internal to the system. Losing encourages players to job ship to Trinity. 2009: 1 team (Episcopal) 2010: 1 team (Episcopal) 2011: 2 teams (University Christian and RIbault) 2012: 3 teams (Sandalwood, University Christian, Ribault) 2013: 1 team (University Christian) 2014: 1 team (University Christian) 2015: 2 teams (Ribault, University Christian) 2016: 1 team (University Christian) 2017: 1 team (Ribault) 2018: 1 team (Ribault) ------------------ As for Columbia's struggles in scheduling... They are a big fish in a really small pond, literally. Beyond the 2 Gainesville schools, what school is even 75% of the size of Columbia? Columbia 1960 Suwannee is 1197 Baker County 1378 Santa Fe 1095 Fort White 595 Gainesville 1886 Buchholz 2292 after that you are either in Ocala, Jacksonville, or Tallahassee, all of which could basically stay in their home counties or immediate neighboring counties to find competition. I am not surprised Columbia is having a hard time finding opponents, smaller district, more emphasis on every game counting means don't want to schedule an automatic "L". Remember, one of the arguments that you make for this scheduling over the simpler just district games counts is that every game counts now. As a result teams don't want to schedule a 80% likely loss no matter the high strength of schedule. I don't blame coaches and ADs for that. I also think coaches and ADs are worried about the bottom line, traveling to Lake City is far, even for close teams. While Lake City travels well, is it more cost effective to play a school in county?
  9. Schedules

    I might ask Joshua later and see if I can get some clarification on that rule so I understand it correctly
  10. Schedules

    The new rule is that you can pick games up for the season if you have the week open heading into year or if you have to find a new opponent if weather causes a game to not be able to be completed At least that's what I was told when I asked around about it, I looked for the writeup on fhsaa site with the rule changes this off-season but could never find it and see the specific wording
  11. Schedules

    I thought games had to be made up. The rule was in place to keep teams from picking up a game week 11 to try and make the playoffs. So that rule was dropped? You can pick up games whenever?
  12. Schedules

    In a perfect world all schedules would be done in May but when you call team after team and it's all NO as a answer what are you supposed to do??? Sometimes I wish Columbia was located in SFL since SFL teams aren't lacking their balls and will play, unlike a lot of these north FL teams who will talk big game but moment you call them they got no interest Just look at how few Jacksonville teams TCA is playing, TCA reached out to everyone with a phone line in Jacksonville and the 3 they got (Raines, Ribault, Lee) were only ones who were not scared to play them
  13. Schedules

    That would be a terrible idea Did you forget what state you live in badbird? This is the state where games get dropped for weather more than flys get smashed with a flyswatter If anything the new rule in place removing that was a great idea Not to mention many teams have trouble filling their schedule when local teams are scared to play you
  14. Schedules

    Deadlines are definitely needed. You can't go into July and even early August not knowing what's going on. It also helps fans get an idea how to plan for time off from work, etc. if there's an OOS game involved.
  15. Schedules

    Deadlines are needed. You can schedule a game after the deadline. It just won't count towards the playoff rankings
  16. Schedules

    Teams are still looking for games Last thing we need is some deadline that causes teams to be forced to go into season without a full schedule
  17. Schedules

    This falls on the FHSAA. They punted the responsibility to a second rate website that is famous for errors and inaccuracies. The FHSAA should be held liable. They literally make every move that is not in the best interest of the coaches, players and fans of the sports played in the state. It’s embarrassing. I posted this link in another thread. Can someone tell me why this can’t be the minimum mandatory? https://www.ghsa.net/2019-2020-ghsa-football-schedule
  18. Lakeland appears fully reloaded for 2019

    It is very hard to repeat but look forward to see LHS and what they can do. The Camo Uniforms aren't their only version, Lakeland has a big booster club and has always had multiple jersey/Pant combinations. Only one helmet though. They wore the camo's 2 or 3 times last year. Black over black is still my favorite. But Black over orange, Black over white, Orange over orange, Grey over Grey...
  19. Parrish Community High School starts play 2019

    And unfortunately the over building in Parrish itself. 10,000 new homes approved. Lakewood Ranch kids will be crossing the Manatee River, all the kids in Parrish were zoned for Palmetto High.

    Dade always blames the lack of fields as the cause for their lateness. I think it's just because they wait until spring sports are done to start working on the master. Broward is usually pretty on top of things, perhaps a change or two here and there occurs for whatever reason. Not sure how Palm Beach has been historically though I did hear they fell behind a little bit and was rushing last minute to put some things together on the master. As for MP -- don't get Nole and I started on them.
  22. Schedules

    Just curious. Can someone explain why we have not seen 2019 schedules? Max Preps is no help because what they have is either incomplete, constantly changing, showing duplications or reflecting incorrect opponents. It just seems that we should have these schedules available for public viewing. All schools were supposed to submit their schedules by June 3rd. As usual we have to wait and wait. Also, if you notice, the majority of missing schedules are out of South Florida. This is an annual occurrence usually blamed on the lack of football fields. Apparently their scheduling skills are on par with their voting prowess. Here's a tip: Start earlier.

    He gave Pahokee hell, the first half last season. After the break they kinda neutralized him. He’s quick and very disruptive though
  24. Henry Bryant III (Atlantic)

    Just watched his hudl. Happy as hell for dudes like him that are undersized for his position but make it through to a power 5 conference. Kid is 5'11", but if he was 2 or 3 inches taller he would have his pick of any school. I have only watched his highlights and not a full game. I would like to believe that his effort all game is equal to his highlights. Good stance and great first step. D-Line coach in college will teach him the great art of using his hands violently every play. I would think that he will be required to put on more weight and play more of a zero technique at the next level. Gonna be fun to watch his progression.
