Cotey: The Hot List, Week 8

You can read it, put your coffee on it to keep it warm, clip it out and use it to fry eggs on, but just don't touch. It's hot! Every weekend, Times preps columnist John C.Cotey will you bring the Hot List, telling you what's trending most in the world of prep sports. 

1. #Hype
Can Armwood vs. Plant ever have enough? Yep, it's that time of the year again. Hide the women and children.
2. #BobWeiner and #SeanCallahan
Lucky us. Combined, these coaches are 117-12 the past five seasons, and five of those losses have been to each other.
3. #Vegas
If you're looking for an early imaginary line on this game, the Hawks would be favored by 5.5 points and the over-under is 37.
4. #Sunlake
Imagine schooling your little brother at hoops in the driveway every day of his life, then one day, he beats you and poof! Mystique, gone! It hurts and it's something you never get over, even decades later. Cough. I mean, from what people tell me, anyway.
5. #JoshTownsend
Osceola's back-up quarterback threw three passes against Tarpon Springs, which threw 39. He completed them all. Two for touchdowns. I think you know where I'm going ...Warriors beat Spongers for first time ever.
6. #PalmHarborUniversity
Move over futbol, the pigskin Hurricanes are going to the playoffs.
7. #Undefeated
Armwood and Plant and Countryside and Pasco and Plant City. I'll go out on a limb and say someone won't be on this list next week.
8. #NelsonAgholor
Clearwater Central Catholic had a great plan to stop the Berkeley Prep superstar, but once the aliens didn't show up for the scheduled abduction, well, that was that.
9. #GivingNoQuarter
I'm not saying there's not a team that can hold the Pasco Pirates under 50 points. I'm just saying that team doesn't exist in Pasco County.
10. #Volleyball
No, really. Playoffs start next week, and East Lake will try to become the first Pinellas County state champion to ever repeat. Hillsborough, meanwhile, yawns at the idea of repeat champions.
