The Great State Debate

Discussion in 'Misc Archives' started by FLORIDAFOOTBALL, Mar 17, 2005.

  1. Hello From Lakeland

    Just wanted to give you some input as a "live" watcher of Chris Rainey's play this year. He really surprised even coach Castle this year with his play. The highlights were a bit chopped up and some of the runs that were cut off were long TD's. Has anyone mentioned that he averaged 12.7 yards per carry? He made some senational runs that were not shown. The kid has an extra gear on the outside and routniely beats guys who are tracking him down "with" what should be a tackling angle, is gone.
    Sorry to burst your midwest bubble but our High School football (florida) is third only to Texas and California for talent. I lived in the Midwest and thought that the Big Ten and Midwestern football was it, but since being in the south for 15 years, my views have changed overall.
    The major draw back to Chris would have to be his grades, he has a bit of a hard time with the books. Probably will not qualify. Have a good life and enjoy the snow and cold if you happen to still ive in the Great white North.

    First of all, only huge homers think that Ohio football produces the most talent. But to call one state better at football than another is a little bit absurd. And by the way, California's football schools are HUGE underachivers among the big names. They have tons of people in the state, but they only produce 8 DI-A prospects per million people whereas FL/Tex are 14 and Ohio 12.
    Not really sure why you're ripping on everything, but you go ahead and enjoy your salty, drug-filled overcrowded beaches with jellyfish and hurricanes, I'll stick to my amazing freshwater beaches in SW MI.

    You had a fairly decent post running until you went off with your state BS.

    I suggest you read the Recruiting Forum rules before you decide to hijack another thread.

    If you are here to troll, you won't be here long.

    The only bubble burst concerning the comparison of Ohio and Florida football was on Jan 3, 2003 in the Fiesta Bowl.
