You didn't actually think Section VIII or XI was going to do anything sensible did you? Ruin the lopsided victories of #1 vs #8 for what could be a highly competitive game between #1 and #4 do you? My feeling is if those games hold true to what they were before 2009, and are competitive, then no one will want the eight team playoff forum any longer. It will tax their mental capacity and try too figure out what to do with an extra game. HmmmmInstead of pushing back everything they should of gone with the top 4 teams in each conference it was brought up at meeting the other day and was quickly turned down.

The doing away with the quarter final games was the fastest and easiest solution. Politically correct is the only thing that matters recently. The 5 through 8 seeds did not deserve the honor of a playoff spot. It is getting worse then the 6 and 6 teams playing in college bowl games.
#3606 Nov 2, 2012
You are 100% correct. What does the BCS now have 34 Bowl games? Ridiculous. The way these E.D. from both Nassau and Suffolk are going, soon they'll be ten teams in the playoffs.
#3608 Nov 3, 2012
I see Section XI has their playoff schedule listed for Nov. 09 (Friday) and Nov. 10th (Saturday). I was told Section VIII will have theirs out by Monday afternoon.
#3609 Nov 3, 2012
Lawrence field unplayable. Maybe Hewlett or it may be at Bethpage. Field buckled in a lot of spots

Stop crying about last years loss to a better Sayville team. Hope for more success this year for your team instead of going back to the 1970's
or focusing on off the field traditions. Last year on the field...Sayville won! I believe that this year on the field Sayville will win again. End of story!
#3614 Nov 4, 2012
I wanted to pick SmEast...but I just don't feel that they have the experience to handle N.Bab in a playoff scenario in colder weather conditions. I also am wavering on SmWest since they beat EI earlier in the season on the road. They won't be intimidated so it could be a coin-flip game.
I heard that KP had several starters out when these 2 played 2 weeks ago...I think at full strength KP wins. If players are still out then Huntington takes it again.
#3615 Nov 4, 2012
I'm just not on board with Smithtown West. I don't belive the will beat East Islip @ East Islip in the playoffs.
North Babylon just hasn't shown any big explosive offense against teams with winning records. They did come alive against Newfield, but we all know what happened to Newfield after they started 3-0, that first loss killed them. Yet #4 vs #5 seeded playoff teams have proved to be the better of the playoff games with some surprises.
Now the Kings Park vs Huntington you could be right, Humtington took it to KP two weeks ago with a 38-14 beating. Now as you posted if the players were able to heal with this two week lay off it could be a different game. Yet again you have another #4 vs #5 match up.
I know you like Sachem East(Points f/a 148-185), but Northport is hot with left handed QB Sean Gilroy. Seven game Passing stats: 69/109 1,176 yards 10 tds, Passing stats: 235 carries 1,659 yards 20 tds. Gilroy is a legit dual threat QB. If you watched to Floyd game, I noticed that the only side Gilroy would run or throw to was his left side. To me it looked as if Floyd wasn't playing him to go left. I felt bad for Floyd in the first half with three beautiful td drives called back on horrible holding calls. Floyd in the first half had 10 penalities for over 100 yards, that's just plan crazy. I'm glad Longo sent the tape to the head of Suffolk's officiating.
I don't think Steven Cassili can carry Sachem East against Northports dual threat offense.
Now as far as Sachem North, your right Bay Shore can beat them, BS offense is one of the best on the Island (Passing 86/181 1,324 yards 14 td's, Rushing 262 carries 1,611 yards 19 td's. With the loss of Trent Crossan & Tyler Andreassi, will Malik Pierre be able to replace the offense of those two players. If BS is to win they better learn how to play defense, that will determine the fate of Bay Shore in this game.
#3616 Nov 4, 2012
Sayville will win?! LMAO
#3617 Nov 4, 2012
I was at the northport Floyd all those penalties were legit calls. There could have been ten more penalties against Floyd. They were holding so much that they ripped the starting D ends jersey. NPT a scary team right now and on a big roll. Not the same team that lost to sachem east on the first game of the season.
#3618 Nov 4, 2012
Northport is playing well...but IF Casalli gets his mojo on, Northport will have their hands full. He is a legitmate Hanson candidate as there is no other player that can single-handedly carry a team & influence a game from both sides of the ball like he can/does. AND...I'm not taking anything away from John Haggart, as they are the clear-cut players for this award. Casalli has no support but no-one lifts the abilities of his team more than his presence on Sachem East.
#3619 Nov 4, 2012
Interesting how never ever in the history of Floyd have they ever had so many penalities in one game, never mind it was in a single half. This is why the tape is now with the head of officiating of Suffolk.
Against Sachem East Northport gave up 444 yards and 6 td's and against Pat-Med the gave up 478 yards and 6 td's. The difference was both SE and P-M played Gilroy as a player that could only run and pass to his left.
#3620 Nov 4, 2012
Perhaps it was a poor day of execution by Floyd combined with a good day by Northport...and not some officiating conspiracy. Sending videos to the head of officiating does nothing but start rumors. Odds are that they won't see that crew again this season. Bad calls exist or correct calls are often not made when they should be...it usually evens out so call it what it was, a legitimate loss by Floyd. Northport beat them, end of story.
#3621 Nov 5, 2012
...I'm not taking anything away from John Haggart, as they are the clear-cut players for this award. Casalli has no support but no-one lifts the abilities of his team more than his presence on Sachem East.
I agree Casalli is a great ball player. Haggart has been limited in his offensive stats, because so many games are blowouts and limit his playing time. Ask any team that has played Sayville or watched a game how great he is on defense.(Miller Place). He also has been outstanding for 3 years on both sides of the ball. The most outstanding highlight game was in his Soph. year in the Suff. Co, finals against Islip. He single handedly took over the game in overtime to give Sayville a huge upset win. Also coming in first in the NIKE combine out of over 900 kids says quite alot about the quality athlete he is.
A good argument can be made for either kid, they are both special players.
#3622 Nov 5, 2012
I agree that Hagart deserves equal considertion & recognition for the award. His stats aren't the issue...his consistent impact on his team's success is not the issue. Unfortunately they don't take into account NIKE scores & Sophomore moments...its about the productivity as a SR player. It is film vs. film, stats vs. stats during the 2012 season. He will be fine because in playoffs Hoss won't pull him out and he an run up stats on Amity & Hunt...(yes, I'm waivering on my KP pick a little). BUT if Casalli helps SE make a run, even without winning a SCC it is a done deal. Too much hype on him by the sports writers/MSG guys who are the real decison makers. It's Pelligrino all over again...you don't have to win a championship to be honored as the best player
