Good job Desert Hills! Now go beat Hurricane and bring the State Championship
back to St. George!
Loved the fans tonight. Thanks for supporting our Dhhs boys Local fans!! Go
Great win D-Hills. I guess having everyone back made a difference. Needham
looked fantastic. If Harris is 100% next week after passing for 15 of 17 in the
first half, could be big for the thunder. It may be Hurricane's only flaw (pass
coverage) Go Thunder !!!
You gotta love 3A football! Two semi-finals. Four great teams of outstanding
young men who bore their hearts and souls for four full quarter and NOBODY took
a single backward step. When the smoke cleared the difference between victor
and vanquished in both games: an eyelash. For the Dons and the Redmen the pain
of this loss will fade and they will be able to look back and know they were
part of something very special. They were part of two very good, very dangerous
football teams. The Tigers will be looking to take care of unfinished business
and the Thunder will take their first step onto the hallowed ground of the State
Championship field. Good luck to both teams and congratulations and thanx to
all the playoff teams for a great tournament.
Sure hope the game is in southern utah
Congratulations D-Hills on a well-played game! Both teams gave great efforts.
Yes that might be the only flaw but you still have not scored against the
varsity team. I was impresses by DH last night as I went to watch the game. It
should be a great game indeed DH deserves to be there IMO. I am glad everybody
is healthy so we dont have to hear the excuses this time around.
Liger, I don't understand your comment
@LigersWhy is it every time you are on here you shoot your mouth off.
Nobody used injuries as an excuse last time, Hurricane was just plain better.
The injuries are common in football but for DH this season it has been really
hard to get all starters on the field at the same time. Good luck next week.
Leave it to ligers. Dig dig then say something good then dig dig to end your
blog. OLDThese are all great young men. Both teams have friends on
both sidelines. By saying pass coverage might be their only flaw is a huge
complement . Hurricane is a machine. These young men should be praised for
what they have accomplished. Hurricane for having not lost a single game
and Desert Hills for reaching the finals , two teams remain and both from
Wow! Very impressive. I was very suprised DH took Cedar out of their traditional
game plan. The DH fans have been talking about having their full team back and I
think that had a lot to do with it (taking Cedar out of their game.) It will
probably be more difficult to take Hurricane out of it's game plan but that is
what will have to happen to keep the game close. Hurricane's secondary really
struggled against SF with two starters hurt but I see them making adjustments
next week and don't see DH getting the easy TD's like SF did. It should be a
fantastic game and probably pretty high scoring. I'm going with Hurricane 35-21.
Great game by the Thunder! I didn't think they could handle Ursua but they kept
him in check most of the night. I only remember three big runs (2 for
TDs)...which is amazing because he is good for a dozen of those. Putting 9 guys
in the box was expected but I am a bit surprised that the Cedar coaching staff
didn't have a counter move for that. Holding Bishop to next to nothing was
superb.As a Hurricane fan, I applaud your efforts! It will be fun at
TigerfanA little early for a drink, you sound punchy.Of
course it will be more difficult to stop Hurricane.I'm sure SF would say
nothing was easy about playing Hurricane.Of course your going with
Hurricane, your name is tigerfan.
That's Karma for you. Coach Peacock went and bashed Westlake for letting Ursua
get his ways and being undisciplined. Then Ursua doesn't show up to any of his
offseason or summer practices while harping on integrity. Ursua shows up 2
weeks before the season starts, gets handed the starting job and Peacock
apologizes to Ursua and his mother for comments he made.Just when he
thought he was getting to the promised land, karma, in the form of Desert Hills
makes things right (to make it even harsher, it was a team they blew out 3 weeks
earlier).It would have been a bit nicer had Westlake finished off TV on
gone a little farther, but, oh well.Go Knights!
Roses are red, violets are not, good luck stopping, Thompson,Yardley, and Scott.
@pic 6Don't mock me. I've been 100% with my Hurricane picks this year:)
@tigerfanI am sure that the Tigers had more to do with winning then
ligers,Doh! So close to having a totally positive post! Keep trying. I
know you can do it! Jo Momma,Cute poem. If the DH boys can
pull it off, luck will have little to do with it.
There are rumors about moving the game south... Hansen Stadium is
too small. SUU is bigger.Let's move it to Sam Boyd Stadium at
@LAsorda,no rumor fact,details are being worked at as we speak,100% game will be
played in So Utah.
A very good source told me today that calls between the UHSAA and DSC have
already taken place. Both schools would have to agree, but honestly, after that
crowd and scene last night, with the concentration of noise and excitement all
in one place, I would vote for it again. The packed house at Hansen Stadium is
more impressive looking, in my opinion, than the apparent sprinkling of fans at
RES. It is an awe inspiring experience up there but last night was GREAT!Weather is more predictably good. More locals could attend. The college
is equipped to link the TV feed to KJZZ so the rest of the state will get it as
well. Less risk of traffic incidents or, heaven forbid, accidents. Hard to find
a down side.
Cedar Coach called DH "babies" for wanting to play on turf. That was
even more motivation for the boys even though they had plenty from the earlier
game. Cedar hung tough and never gave up so I congratulate them. DHHS is going
to have to play a near perfect game to beat Hurricane but on any given night
anything can happen. Gotta love High School football!
They could easily bring in a bunch of those portable bleachers, they use for
parades and rodeos, to add additional seating at Hansen Stadium. They also need
that portable screen, they used at Hurricane for the playoff game against
Grantsville, for replays. That was sweet.@kokuaIsn't that the case
with all predictions from fans?
Cant wait to see the game. Ill only be able to watch it if it is in southern
utah tho so hopefully they will make the change.
Jo MammaStoke up the wood stove and snuggle up to Jill , because you
wont be making the drive to the hill.Watch us on TV, win or lose-but you
will no longer be in the news. I love your blogs for what ever reason, but
now we will all wait for Basketball season.
Hurricane & DH players would much rather pley the game & RES,. They have
grown up playing at Hansen Stadium & have invisioned Wining the
State title @ RES. NOT Hansen Stadium. The fans will travel to support
there teams , don't cheat the boys out of there dreams!,
Wow, everyone a Rapa , so let's go to the RES and continue to klapa.
Well turf wars knows all the players on Hurricane and DH and he's says they
would rather play at RES,so that settles it,;)
If we didn't play at RES, I'd vote for SUU's stadium. That way DH wouldn't have
the home field advantage it had at Hansen Stadium. I know I'll get many
detractors saying DH didn't have an advantage, but they did. RES or SUU.
@RazooWhy freeze? The same fans will be at SUU that will be at Hansen.
Hurricane and DH only played one game each at Hansen so I don't think DH will
have an advantage there. I agree with SoUtHapa that there will be three times
the fans at Hansen and that place will be rocking. I think the crowd and playing
in the State Championship will impress the boys more than the stadium.
Ha, cracks me up, people saying things like they know...game will NOT be moved,
number one cuz hurricane coaches will never move it, why would they, and why
would they give up "field advantage", playing at RES is so diff than
playing anywhere in Utah, why would they give up that advantage.Plus, the
state has already said they are not changing the game.So don't say that
things r in the works, because they are not.
In all seriousness,My sources say it's will be announced on Monday,the game will
be played at DSC,it's done,now talk about the game not the venue.
That place was packed and few Hurricane fans were there. How Doc do you and the
powers that be figure that people will have a place to sit. 8 dollars a head to
stand, sounds like education minds to me. Think about it, probably not, just
catering to the biggest whinners!! The boys do want to play in RES, I have one,
he does! If this was about safety and money, why has Hurricane had to travel to
RES 7 times now. Because it was Hurricane and you didn't care. Leave it alone,
the atmosphere is unmatched.
Dr Rush,Quit blowing smoke to make yourself feel important. It will not
Sounds like Dhills is scared to play Hurricane at RES. Use all the
"reasons" you want but admit it, you guys haven't been there and are
afraid of the mighty Tigers on that turf.
You all don't have to believe Dr. Rush, or me. No problem. I am not at liberty
to say who, but this morning a VERY RELIABLE SOURCE told me about a phone call
from the UHSAA regarding preparation to move the game...again. So,
it may not happen but sure looks like it will.
When does the UHSAA actually do what they say they're going to do?
I heard the game will be played on the Moon. Sorry about that because if you
don't have a space ship you wont be able to go.
There are more and better reasons to have the game played in southern utah. It
would not be practical to have the game up north. Good luck to both teams.
Should be a good game.
Why not play it at Hurricane? They are the home team and have earned it. If
were going to move it down lets just move it there. What do you think dhills
Dhhs is not afraid to go to res. They Campaigned for the semi game up there,
amanap,I suppose you will now get some lame tee shirts printed and...never
mind. The true Hurricane fans have too much class and confidence for that.Neither school is calling the shots here. This is a UHSAA function and they
hold all the cards. There is enough positive drama to go around. Why get
hurricane fans are turning into what all region nine fans allways hated about
Come on people! We live in the best community in Utah. Our kids teach us so much
by getting along and creating life long friendships across school boundaries. It
has been and continues to be our pleasure as parents to have former Dixie, Snow
Canyon and Hurricane opponents, now close friends, in our home. One of our sons
is married to a dream of daughter in law who happened to grow up in and play
soccer for Cedar high.Why do we adults feel like we have o get all chippy
and snippy with tee shirts or comments that ave no apparent purpose other than
to cause trouble?
amanapYour right let's play in Hurricane. Directions to Hurricane,
as follows. If you have ever been to Lake Powell, Hurricane is the first dumpy
town before Colorado City..
@south ninerI saw one negative post from ligers but ligers rips on
everyone and three postive post towards DH from Hurricane fans. What is your
point about us being like Snow Canyon?
Let's put some rumors to rst.I have been told that the game is at
RES. Kevin Dustin (UHSAA) told me that contractually KJZZ has paid for the
rights to televise 3 games at RES. I was assured of this fact after the
DHHS/CHS game. Both principals support RES.It would be great to
have it in the south. Unfortunately, Hansen Stadium is much too small.
Hurricane could fill it alone as it only holds 5000. Both the coaches and
players want the experience of playing at RES.Kevin Pedersen,
principalHurricane High School
SoUtHapaYou can't argue with the inmates. What you're hearing makes
perfect sense. If the UHSAA did not do everything possible to move the game
south, it would become the world's biggest hypocrites after all its talk about
the need to reduce travel. Of course the game should be played here and it will
be. Playing at RES is way overrated.
Ok, I will try a third time,.....seems to me that there is so many wonderful and
great and positive blogs on here, I love it when we all can just love each other
and can all just get along....I love the d news, they are always so fair
and really show class...I love the fact that someone can rip on hurricane
fans, and can rip on the town and we can all show our Christlike attitudes and
have forgiveness in our hearts.......love, love, love.....that's all we
need......thanks d news, for letting those blogs go, this has given us all a
chance to show how Christian we are, and forgive those who have shown a lack of
Christlike love for their neighbor.
Kped,Thanks for chiming in at the cost of your relative anonymity :).
KPED,Thanks for wanting to waste taxpayer money when this game could be
played far cheaper down here. Please don't ask for school donations if you are
going to waste like this.
as a former hurricane player i think it would be wrong to take away the
experience of playing at the turf in salt lake city? i had the chance to play
their 4 times and i would not change that experience for anything it ia an
amazing experience plus its just where the championship games are played if it
was down south it would not even feel the same in my opinion and i think most of
the players on the hurricane team would agree? plus its the kids playing the
game so who cares what all the adults and fans want the kids have worked hard to
play there. i was at the cedar game and compared to salt lake the atmoshpere was
boring at hansen dont over look D hills hurricane and bring home that
championship for all of us former players H TOWN FOOTBALL FOR LIFE
Thx Kped, The Young Men"Players" Deserve Nothing Less Than A Trip To
Res.Hansen Stadium Atmosphere Doesn't Even Come Close.Thats What
They Have Put In All The Hard Work For Is To Play The State Championship
At Res Not Hansen Stadium.Dr Rush.
@slseeitYou have misunderstood or misread. The decision to have the
title games at RES was made prior to this season when KJZZ signed a contract
with the UHSAA. KJZZ owns the rights to the 3 title games as the contract
stipulates that the games are at RES. The only way the games can be moved is if
KJZZ agrees to the terms and they'd expect financial compensation. A decision
like that is not made amongst the principals. That decision is between KJZZ
& UHSAA. The UHSAA looked into the matter and were told that it was not an
option for the finals.Our community would live to have the game
closer to home...but we need express consent from KJZZ first. If we had the
option of moving the game, we would have tried changing venues long ago.
Between, and including football seasons of '05 and '08, we followed our sons and
their Pineview team mates to RES 6 times. Tigerfan50 is right. There is really
nothing like it, in this state anyway. However, I would guess that had Hurricane
been playing you'd have been less bored at Hansen Stadium. Maybe?To say
who cares what the adults think, though, is a little short sighted. Who pays the
bills? A trip to RES is not cheap for anyone, let alone for families who are
struggling to make ends meet or a heavily populated school system with a thinly
funded revenue stream in this poor economy. So, I still say that I'd understand
completely if the venue changed.
@siseeITSince when did anyone in Enterprise care where Hurricane
plays a final? That's not your concern. While most here in H-town would love
it closer, we support our team and coaches. We've had three trips there and had
heart-breaking experiences. We want this one to wash away the memories!!! We
support Coach Homer, his staff, the players and everyone else.
I wouldn't mind the game in a neutral stadium. SUU would work for both, UHSAA
must have already spent their money. It's really not about the kids or the
fans, otherwise playing down south would make way too much sense. KJAZZ can send
down a truck and crew much easier than shipping 20 buses, countless parents and
fans to pay out for gas and hotel and hope there are no car wrecks.It would be nice to see all the D-Hills starters back, but that just won't
happen. The sarting receiver/corner blew out his knee, gone for the year;
Needham and Rutledge are lost to playing defense for the year; Nose/center has a
broken foot, hobbles on offense, can't play defense, the QB has a broken finger
and has not finished either of the last two games. Full strength just won't
happen. Maybe the Tigers can win a final against the walking wounded Thunder,
they should.Good luck to both teams, but you won't have a full
strength D-Hills team again. Remember 2 years ago when H-town was ranked number
one, who beat them. It should be a great game. Hope every travels safely.
Jamal,Funny that you say that because the dumpy Hurricane football team
has made your snobby St. George boys cry with their mamas.
Sounds like Jamal has had his tail kicked by Hurricane a few too many times.
I wonder if DH is going to start making injury excuses before the game even
@sportsviewI like how you throw out the two years ago game when these guys
were sophmores. Maybe last year and this year would be a little more relevant
with Hurricane winning both games with a margin of 75-21. I think the same
mantra was given both years as DH was bigger, faster and stronger but the scores
haven't seemed to indicate that.
We care where because in this economy, we are being told that there is hardly
money for paper and supplies yet they have no problem spending for several buses
to drive that far when it could be moved. All KJAZZ would have to do is give
permission no biggie things are moved all the time.
@sports viewI was at the game. and Rutledge looked good on
Friday's win over Cedar. They look healthy to me.As for two years
ago...if Hurricane fumbles within their own 20 twice like they did then and also
has an interception, I think that those mistakes would yield the same result.
@KPEDKJZZ could be paid off easily with a quarter of the gate. Who cares
that the coaches and some of the players want to play up there. A lot of people
want what they can't afford. Making a fiscally responsible decision is the best
example to show the kids rather than throw money down the drain. We already have
the fed gov that does enough of that.
Cedarpost and Enterprise,Why don't you vent to the UHSAA and KJZZ? They
are the ones with the power. If it isn't a biggie then call them yourself.
Jo Mamma,Here's the fact with the injury's. 6 starters, 4 on both sides
of the ball were hurt, and on the sideline when we played Cedar, so whine all
you want, complain about the refs, have your coach call us babies, but the facts
are the facts. All 6 were back on Friday. Result...a "W" over the
Eat Turf haters.
Hmmm. With the new info from Kped.4:01pm, sounds like my conversation with my
friend yesterday may have some juice.He talked about the TV
facilities at Dixie and the ability they have to easily crossover and provide
KJZZ a feed. His conversation was with a UHSAA official.Stay tuned,
All those that are worried about expense: Having been to Hurricane recently,
they certainly look like they have plenty of money, that school addition can't
be cheap. And DH isn't lacking for money either. Here's the thing, that game has
been scheduled since the first of the season, your two teams made the final, now
go support them! I know Cedar, Delta, Spanish, etc. wish they had the worry you
guys have right now. When you have kids that play sports, you know that there is
the possibility of having to pony up some dough to travel to support them. I
know it would be nice to have it moved, but if it can't be, then just travel to
RES and enjoy it for what it's worth. If you can't afford it, then listen to the
yankees,No one's complaining about going up north, just speculating on
what's rumored to be in the mix.
The people complaining about traveling to RES are simply fair weather fans.
Their stories of saving money should of been told during the preseason when
virtually every team traveled north to play a game that was not nearly as
important. Every team that played 3A knew where the finals were scheduled. Their
booster clubs probably figured it into their fund raising efforts. The extra
buses for student bodies are usually paid for by those riding the buses. Why
would anyone want to move the championship game out of the championship stadium
unless it was for their own selfish reasons. What true FOOTBALL fan would worry
about the weather? Like I said they're simply fair weather fans. Let them save
their precious money and watch the game in the comfortable warm house they call
home. This will save them the most money! As for the rest of us Football is
played in or through the cold, rain, sleet or snow. We really only need the
championship fans to watch the championship teams at the championship stadium
"RES". The rest of you know who you are. STAY HOME!
Oh brother! Once again, this is speculation on what the UHSAA may have in mind.
Of course everyone knew where the playoffs were scheduled. The UHSAA is pulling
the strings here and, whether you like it or not, it will be about money, both
saving it and making it. Not weather.Not Hurricane's building
additions.Not DH being full of rich people.Not blah, blah,
blah...whatever the heck else you people want to contrive to psych yourselves
I for one will watch the game at dixie state or on tv, I wont drive to salt lake
to watch it. The drive home after the game is very long.
I am amazed at some of the comments that suggest how easy it would be to move
the game. It is asmifmthey are speaking for the UHSAA or for KJZZ. How would
anyone know what the costs are for KJZZ?! They have already paid to broadcast
the game with very little traveling costs because KJZZ is already in SLC. They
don't need to move the game as they are setting up at RES because there are two
other games there involving Wasatch front teams. Sure, we all would prefer the
game closer to home but that's not an option (so far).If you were
KJZZ, why would you want to move this game after you already signed a contract
and paid a hefty amount for the games? To suggest that a part of the gate would
compensate the move is not accurate. They"d want more than the entire
.@ cedarPost. & @asIseeit Blaming the principal for not having the
game moved...do you really think that decision is left up to a site manager?
Don't be so naive. Principals can't shorten a school,day without getting
permission from their superiors at the district office. Besides,
the point has been clearly made...it is a contract issue. We don't have the
details. The UHSAA must have looked into the matter because the were successful
in moving the semifinal. The game wasn't televised, so KJZZ must have given
approval and I recall that district officials were the ones involved', not site
managers. I work with contracts daily. The purpose of a contract
is to have mutually agreed upon actions. Both parties must agree to reconsider
terms if a change is to be made. Those changes must benefit both parties. What
benefit will KJZZ get by moving the game? They are a business.
Let's just play the game. As a DHHS player's parent I don't care where the game
is played because I will be there. This game will be much much closer than the
first one and I believe DHHS will come out on top.
Most of the talk seems to center around what the fans and respective school
admin's would prefer. Wrong angle, if you ask me. The players are
the ones who've played a 10-12 game schedule to get to the winner take all game.
I'd bet good money if you polled the players, from top to bottom on both teams,
you'd get 95% plus voting for RES. Especially if they could vote their
conscience without being pressured by parents and school Not to
mention if the game is played at SUU or Dixie State wed have to hear from one
schools fans or the other, ad nauseum, that one team had an unfair advantage.
Do I hear RESRESRESRES
If it's an option, let the players and coaches decide. I think they've earned
Ok, Let's end all the speculation. I just called HHS and spoke to a student aid
who was answering phones. He assured me the game will be played at RES. Get your
bags packed and your long johns out!!
I hope the game is at RES so I can eat Kong Pao chicken at PF Changs before the
Here it is. The solution based on all the feed back on this blog and a telephone
call to my aunt whose son is in the know. Money seems to be the whole issue,
the travel costs, the motel rooms, KJZZ etc. Since the two teams have already
played and Hurricane beat Desert Hills so badly we shall just declare Hurricane
the state champs and no one has to spend money or travel north on those vicious
roads. It was played at DHHS and so they had the home field advantage. This
way no more football players will get injured and won't have worry about
bleachers or t-shirts. But if you don't like that I have talked to the district
and they will send parents/fan busses up for those who can't afford the gas or
don't want to drive and they can share in the bus cost so it won't cost the
district extra money. All problems solved. OR we could just stick to the
original plan worked out since last year.
@ lovovdagameI like your solution. @jomammaPF Changs is not good. And I thought Cedar lost, why you going up?
lovovdagame,That was the most stupid comment I have ever read on these
@Southern Fan My point exactly. How stupid can we all get?
@SampsonI never blamed the principal for not having the game moved.
Reading comprehension skills must not be great.. Good luck to Desert Hills and
HHS. may the best team win.
@ amanapPF Changs is pretty good. You need to ask for no scallions on the
Kong Pao. Why would I miss A good football game even if Cedar lost? I will go
because I appreciate the purity of the sport. You can not juxtapose any other
of life's ambiguous aims with the realism and vigor of a great football game for
analytical purposes. There is just no comparison.
@ yo ma. i know for a fact you dont know what youre talking about
So they game is at 6:30 Friday night at RES,95% of the fans there will be from
So Utah,80% of those will be family members of players,I know common sense is no
so common but,you have the 800+mile round trip,hotel that night or getting home
about 3am,gas,food the 10 hours in the car I'm sure there is more,come on
man,you would have 10Xs the folks at the game if its in So Utah,and KJZZ,lol,the
rating on I love Lucy reruns would be higher than the game,and besides Hurricane
fans don't you enough bad memories of finals at RES?
Now people are just plain losing their minds! No kidding, lovovdagame? The semis
were scheduled at RES a year in advance too. That didn't stop a change of
venue.Some of us are not anti any venue, just throwing out for
consideration why it might have gone either way. We're excited to watch the boys
play, regardless where. Jo Momma, that would be Kung Pao.
rush. yes we do. would like a good one.
Dr Rush,I thought you had it all figured out before? I think Hurricane
wants to play there for the reckoning. Just go to PF Changs and your whole trip
will be worth it Dr. Rush. I will be there at 4 o'clock for Kong Pao. You can
sit by me, I will be the most handsome guy in the place.
SoUtHapa,Looks like you yourself are a PF Changs Kung Pao fiend like me.
See you there at 4:00. That MykalJordan dude isn't invited.
I am way more handsome than amanap.
Hate to say it but, I told you so Dr Rush... The buyout for the game top be
moved would cost at least as much as the gate would have been down there... And
don't say well they moved last weeks because last week wasn't the game that is
under contract. $ talks
JM,Kung Pao is the bomb! Hot, spicy little peanut dish, fo' sho'!
Actually, I think it would be cool to meet MykalJordan. Just another passionate
Great win Desert Hills, now it is finally here, The STATE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME!
Since my Soaring Eagle is out I will be on Hurricane side rooting for them. I
am glad it is only a 15 min drive. See you guys at PF Changs, Me and
Mykaljordan will be there 4 o'clock sharp. lol.
Dr Rush | 12:56 p.m. Nov. 14, 2011Saint George, UTyou would
have 10Xs the folks at the game if its in So UtahTen times?!? If
that is the case then the game should be at the Rose Bowl. There will be
between 6000-8000 there.
Jamal...seriously? Your comments have to be negative attacks on a community
instead of simply about the game and the teams who worked hard to get to the
finals? Why can't it be about the game and the awesome boys who worked to hard
to make it this way..it has nothing to do with the financial status of a
community, which, by the way, the last time I looked we are within about 30
miles of each other, so technically we are in the same community. Obviously, the
"looks" of a community has nothing to do with the "heart" of
a community, as the Hurricane Valley has tremendous heart and class. Wish I
could say that about all of Washington County. Unfortunately, attitudes like
yours bring the county down a notch. Go Tigers! And as far as that goes, good
luck to DHHS as well.
Who was it that had "a VERY reliable source that the game would be moved
and announced this morning? I forget.Jomamma, I didn't understand
your comment. Yep, must be because I went to HHS, (there, I just saved about 20
comments on here from the St. George upper class people about how we are
inferior) Find somewhere good to eat and I'll join you. P.S. doubt
it very much that you are handsomer than I. Yep, just said handsomer.
@SoUtHapa & Dr. RushYou both talk about "your
sources." Why don't you name them?
Does anyone KNOW whether UHSAA uses that TV contract money to help defray costs
of all the schools that have to travel to RES? Do any of the schools get a
portion of the money or is it used to rent the facility from the U of U?
Probably that money is used to fund the UHSAA's activities.
Can you blogger fanatics: email, facebook, or my space each other and not waste
time chatting with each other on this comment board about stupid things that
don't have anything to do with football and the Championship game coming up?
Thunder,It is used to rent facilities, pay for officials etc
Because I don't have his permission to use his name. It's called the honorable
thing to do, or not to do, in this case. Neither he nor I declared anything
would happen, just that conversations were taking place.What difference
would it make if you knew? It wouldn't change a thing.I know who it is.
Unless he's fine with it, you don't need to.
Southern Fan,You mean like you just did?
ThunderBBKThe UHSAA publications say they "reimburse"
schools for travel expenses. How much and for what events isn't clear, but one
would think there would be help with state tournament travel. The tv revenue is
significant, because the UHSAA gets that regardless of the number of fans who
travel to see games at RES.Southern FanRousing
"amen" to your 3:12 p.m. comment.
Southern Fan must be a panther.
How is the weather in St. George today?
It passed the scrutiny of the Deseret News comment constables so it is
appropriate to be on here. Southern Fan, if you want change you need to apply
at the Deseret News company, and you can personally keep it to the par in which
thou seems appropriate. I, however, think the mediators on here do a terrific
job without your abundant knowledge of football and appropriateness. Maybe we
aren't good enough for you, so maybe just socialize with your own gregarious
There is no way the Warriors are going to usurp the championship. The Tigers
are going to win, and I will ignore the flippant remarks of Southern Fan from
It is gratifying to know that NONE of you who post here will be on the field to
decide this championship. It's really too bad that this great game will be
decided on who plays the best on a particular day. How about 2 out of 3? Just
kidding of course. This will be as exciting as both semifinal games were, and
will probably come down to who has the ball last. Can't wait for Friday!
Man jomamma your dictionary is getting some use today...
Everyone needs to calm the heck down! Too much tension is bad for your
health.Just a bunch of people blowing off nervous energy, that's
all. Oldcoach, agreed. Friday can't come too soon.
All from my own noggin!
Jo mamaYou are the pot calling the kettle black. I think you have
forgotten about your past attempt at rhyming. So your right you past the Deseret
news mediators with your abundant knowledge of football and appropriateness. You
are probably Southern Fan also.
My feeling is that our Thunder will have to play a near perfect game on both
sides of the ball. Hurricane is as tough a team as I have seen for several
years, but Spanish showed that there are a few chinks in their armor. I hope for
a great game that both teams will be proud of the way they play. I'd fly to
Anchorage if they changed the venue tomorrow. It's about the kids that have
earned the right to be there. RES will be a great place to say they've played.
Good luck & safe travel to everyone this weekend. May the best team on
friday night win!
I donated a little bit of money to UHSAA so it doesn't cost the tax payers
dollars or the schools to haul the two Semi Champs up north, there is no better
feeling then winning a State Championship at RES I've done it twice, many years
ago and no I'm not from down south, I've done it in high school, college and
NFL, Good luck to both great teams and congratulating you both on your great
accomplishments. Play hard and play with passion. People please enjoy the boys
and respect the game. Thanks
@ Ask the Football PROI am not sure who you are sir, but you need to be
thanked for your great gesture. You are a great example of the goodness of
people who had seen some success in life and want to share it with others! Many
