Jay Fulmer and the Gulf-Ridgewood series

27

September

Friday’s Gulf-Ridgewood game is one of the North Suncoast’s most intriguing matchups, not just because the teams are evenly matched and both looking for their first win.

Rams coach Jay Fulmer will return to Gulf, where he used to coach until the district suspended him for alleged recruiting violations.
 
Before Fulmer took over Gulf in 2005, the Bucs had lost three of their last five games to Ridgewood. Since then, the Rams have won only once against Gulf.
 
The recent history:
 
Before Fulmer
2000: Ridgewood 26, Gulf 11
2001: Gulf 14, Ridgewood 13
2002: Ridgewood 41, Gulf 22
2003: Gulf 25, Ridgewood 6
2004: Ridgewood 24, Gulf 16
 
Under Fulmer
2005: Gulf 27, Ridgewood 7
2006: Gulf 21, Ridgewood 0
2007: Ridgewood 49, Gulf 34
2008: Gulf 52, Ridgewood 28
2009: Gulf 43, Ridgewood 22
 
After Fulmer
2010: Gulf 25, Ridgewood 13
2011: Gulf 16, Ridgewood 7

What's your prediction for Friday's game?
