University School players and supporters still claim they were "bamboozled" by Manatee

Recent posts on Instagram by members of the University School football team members and Instagram's "GridIronStuds" show that they are still upset at their loss to Manatee this past season. In a post from two weeks ago, they claim they were "bamboozled" by Manatee. The POST includes a photo of the University School players in the Manatee visitor's locker room. The post says: TBT: In the locker room before getting bamboozled @ Manatee in 2013 season.

According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, the first definition of bamboozle is to "deceive by underhanded methods." No explanation was provided in the post...University School joins the long list of South Florida teams that have lost to Manatee in high profile games since Joe Kinnan has been at Manatee: Miami Southridge (State Championship game), Ft. Lauderdale Dillard (State Championship game), Miami Carol City (State Championship game), Miramar and Miami Central two years ago and University School last year.
