Morgan will make the playoffs. The loss to Grantsville hurt, but they should
win the next 3 games. Stansbury was a better team the Morgan last Friday.
Morgan will be fine going into the playoffs. They should win the next 3 region
games. They have already played the toughest part of their schedule.
Mr. Morgan should go into coaching. He sounds really smart. Why wouldn't Morgan
coaches listen to him?
The center was benched because he couldn't get to the second level as well as
the Sophomore who won the lineman of the camp award at the BYU camp this summer.
Not a coaching error, just pure fact. As for the running back, he played
against Stansbury and had 5 carries for 36 yards. Not as good of a combination
as you state.
being a coach is like being a lineman, whenever things go great and the team
scores or wins, the "skill players" get the kudos, and conversely,
when backs can't run or the QB gets sacked or the team loses, it your fault.
It's a no-win proposition, if you can't handle that, you shouldn't be a lineman,
or a coach!
I am not too worried about Morgan losing to Bear River. Morgan is down a bit but
Bear River is struggling a bit more and should leave Morgan and Ogden to fight
it out for the fourth spot. Fans like Mr. Morgan are poison to a community and a
team and probably let the coaches coach (just like it says inside the Morgan
gym). I give Stansbury credit for having a successful season and being a
surprise team, at least a surprise to people outside of Stansbury Park and Erda.
I don't even know the Morgan coaching staff but I am continually impressed with
the season results with the talent that they have to choose from. I just hope
the four teams from Region 11 represent well in the playoffs this year.
I think there is merit to this comment. Not only are they missing one of their
best running backs,they are missing their big center for whatever reason. With
the two of them out I think it has hurt the offense immensely. Their offense
stalls without them, the bulk up front with the power and running skill behind,
look thru the stats they need them back! The two of them coming back would make
a huge contribution and makes me quite concerned when they play us in the next
few weeks. I know the back was injured, but was has happened to the center? I've
heard rumors he was benched and replaced with a young Sophmore, coaching error
Morgan coaching is questionable as the team fails to make adjustments during the
course of a game. However, Morgan has been without their best player for the
past few games due to injury and should be back soon. They will not miss the
playoffs, the region is just too weak for Morgan to finish out of the playoff
I have talked to the coaches, but they won't talk to me. I know probably too
much about the team and care too much and that is where I get myself in trouble.
Yes it is the same coaching staff that has gone downhill every year. They lose
in an earlier round each year. Last year they lost in the first round, so if the
pattern holds true, they won't make the playoffs this season. It doesn't always
come down to execution, but it always comes down to preparation and leadership
and I know that the coaches don't prepare the kids as well as they should and
they don't know how to lead. I want the kids to succeed, but the coaches aren't
helping. This is my last comment in this thread. Good luck to the boys... Go
Mr. MorganIs it the same coaching that has taken the team to the semi's
and playoffs for the last 5 of 6 years with the same coaching staff, running the
same offense? Maybe it is nonsupportive community members, like yourself, that
cause problems for the school and coaching staff, that is the problem. IF you
think you know so much, why don't you go to the coaches and talk to them. I have
had multiple conversations with them, and I think what they are doing isn't that
bad. It comes down to execution. I have yet to lose a game from the stands.
Support the program. Go Trojans
The kids are great and I hope I'm wrong for their sakes, but the coaching won't
allow them to go far and no I'm not a parent, so there is no grudge there, it's
just a simple fact that coaching is holding them back.
Mr. Morgan, why would you hope you are wrong when you so boldly make those
predictions. Obviously you don't understand the game or the team. Morgan may be
a little down this year, but they are not out. Have some hometown pride and
build up the team, don't tear them down with your comments. Go Trojans, prove
Wow...can you tell me the numbers for the Idaho lottery? I am impressed with
your insight, it is really profound.
Mr. MorganUpset parent? I don't understand why someone is bagging on
their own team? Take some pride and actually say something good about your
school or change your name.
Sorry, I, made this prediction in two other threads. They lose to BR this week,
and lose to Ogden the last week. They have a shot against Tooele, and may make
the 4th seed and be a one and done team against Spanish Fork in the first round.
Hope I'm wrong, but don't think that I am.
As predicted... Morgan misses playoffs completely. Congrats Stansbury.
