We lost 32 - 16 in a fiasco.  We finished 10 -1. 

I can't tell you how disappointed I am.   We did everything you shouldn't do in every way from preparation to game day coaching.

100% coaches loss.   They were very talented and well coached, they had a great game plan and beat us in every way we could be beaten.   Their coaches deserve great credit for how they played.

We came out with a whole new scheme for the week with new plays and blocking on a light practice week filled with so many distractions I can't even list them.

It was garbage.     Just a perfect storm of crap from beginning to end in all facets of the game - defense, special teams and offense.

I'm glad I went to church today and was brought down to Earth.   Saw pics of people standing in the wreckage of their homes.   I shouldn't be so upset over a football game.
can I ask why a whole new scheme?

But not a combination of both adding up to 5?  So all 5 have to come from either an O or D squad?  Interesting.
Yeah. I think it's a pretty neat rule.

Well, our 28 gamewin streak is over as is our 4 year streak of making it to the national championship. We played a team from Miami that gave us a very tough game last year. They added 5 stud players while we got split in to by our association preseason. A close fought football game usually comes down to about 4 or 5 plays. We lost those plays. We threw a pick with a wide open reciever. The ball just came out of the qbs hand funny. We had the ball inside the 10 with no timeouts with 25 seconds left in the half and managed to run 2 plays but came about an inch short. That would of tied the game. They got the ball in the 2nd half and we stuffed them and started driving the ball. We did not convert a 4th and 2. Their next drive we had them 3 and 25 and gave up a 60 yard run for a td. We kept it close all game but with a late score by the bad guys they won 30-16. Much closer game then the score showed. Our kids gave it their all and I think we did a good job as a staff. No excuses here. We just got beat by a better team with a bunch of better athletes than we had. This one stings though. Could of won it with a little luck.

ROB

It's always rough when a run ends, but in a few days I'm sure you appreciate the scope of what you guys have done. I have been there, & I know sometimes when you are in the middle of it you can't enjoy it. There is always that next game. What you guys have accomplished there is really amazing, & you have my heartfelt congratulations.

can I ask why a whole new scheme?

Our HC is an extremely intelligent very high IQ guy, so he often wants the perfect play or perfect blocking scheme versus a defense and changes things up accordingly.   Two problems, one we didn't have scout film on them.   We just knew what they did against us the first time we played them weeks ago.   Two, there is no guarantee they were going to play the same defense.

Our game plan would have dominated them IF they did what we expected them to do.   I think he figured if they didn't do what we expected, the kids would quickly adjust and go back to base rules.   They did not do what we expected them to do and the kids did not adjust.   They had free runners on many plays into our backfield on blown assignments.

Our kids were completely confused on what to do or who to block since we changed a number of our rules and assignments for this particular game.   Our kids aren't sharp enough to quickly switch gears or adjust on the fly on their own, because we playing from behind we didn't want to burn timeouts.

On top of that we had kids sick, kids missed practice for a school band concert, kids were really tired from everyday basketball practice and school and then we are throwing new stuff at them.   Our DT who missed practice was a key part of the defensive game plan, a great kid but he went wrong gap on a number of key plays.   Every time he went wrong gap they happened to have the play called to that gap.

Our DE forgot his base rule on 5 wides (he has to cover the 3rd receiver) of course they score on that play on a long TD.

On top of that they had a very dominant player who a number of our kids were just flat afraid of.   Offensivley they didn't want to block him and defensively they didn't want to tackle him.    I can't tell you how much that p****s me off.   If that wasn't the last game, practice today would be brutally physical as a result of that cowardice.   

I share in the blame 100%.   If I am going to take partial credit for wins, I need to take just as much blame for losses.   It's a team effort win or lose and I need to make work whatever we decide to do.

Not sure wht we will do. If changes are not made on the board coaching at another association may end up being an option. We have serious issues with the people who run our assocation. I honestly feel that they do not have the best interest of the kids in mind.

Come on out to San Diego - I'd love to have you on my staff (or, for that matter, I'd be honored to be on your staff).  Low humidity, a noticeable lack of alligators, sunny and mild almost all the time, and plenty of talented athletes (maybe not as many as you're used to in Florida, but still pretty good).  Also a lot less mosquitoes, roaches, palmetto bugs, etc, etc, than you're used to.  It's like coaching in paradise!!  Come on out and join me!!

If a move in is mind Orlando is much closer than San Diego (sorry Doug) and with the new regional bracket that started this year, we don't have to tangle with Miami until the finals.

And if you're worried about a few gators you just aren't from Florida.

Anyway, ya, I'd step aside to be one of your assistants up here any time.

OK lets be real here.

Paradise comes at a price.

You need two jobs just so you can afford a gallon of milk.  :o

Plus you need to be bi-lingual.  ::)

And a helicopter is necessary or half your life is spent sitting in your car commuting.  :P

And then there is the Padres....and Norv Turner...and Tijuana is awfully close....with their Cartels and constant train of Mules...and stuff .  ;) ;)
