Also Bingham was trying to let the kid score at the end so they could get the ball back with a chance to score and get the 2 point conv for the tie. Smart play by the alta kid to down it at the 1.

markymark.... sorry, I was not really trying to 'judge' the Bingham TE. I was just trying to see if something was wrong. Apparently there was something wrong. I did not mean to offend your son like that. I am sure he is a great kid. I wish him luck.

Bottom line with the Miners is they really need to solve the issue at QB and quickly. That whole rotating QB's every play is not a formula for success, just as BYU. They either need to stay with Stout and work on his decision making when throwing the ball, or go with Bowles and alter the offense to allow him to run, which is what he does best. But do one or the other. This isn't 3 years ago when you had Cantwell that could come in and run and pick up the first downs every so often. Neither have that type of talent. Pick one and stick with him.

HSFAN, I can only hope that my son is as good as this kid and get to choose whatever school he wants to go to on a full ride. I had to walk on and earn my scholarship at the U, not the easiest way. But my oldest is only 5 so i have a long way to wait for that. How is your boy doing on the debate team?

markymark--My son has a full ride debate scholarship to ITT Tech!.... dude relax, no one is ripping on your son or nephew or close friend. No one would take something that was not meant to be personal, so personally.... .well unless they are related. I am glad he gets to choose whatever school he wants to go on a full ride. That is so cool. Once again, good luck to your brother/son/nephew/cousin.

If the Bingham TE was poked in the eye and could not see the ball, why would the coaches leave him in the game? Maybe for blocking, but why throw to him. If you can only see out of one eye, it really messes with the depth perception. Poor coaching if they left him in. They have 80 kids on the sidelines, I am sure someone could have gone in.

I agree with Bench. IF (and that's a big if, because I was at the game, and have since watched it on TV, and there is no sign of him wincing or squinting on a close up in the second quarter after making a reception) the #9 TE got poked in the eye, then the coaches shouldn't be calling plays for him. Unless, of course, he wasn't able to see and didn't tell the coaches, which would be an ego thing for him, putting his own desire to make plays in a big game before the good of the team.
I think it's more likely that he had a bad game. It happens, even to players with their choice of D1 schools. I'm sure he's a good player, but several of those throws that he missed hit him in the hands and were well placed by the QB. My brother had a bad game, too, which would have been much harder to swollow if his team had lost. But they didn't. Go Hawks!

I was giving you some the info that was going on, one of my best friends is a coach at bingham and thats what he told me. I have never met the shultz kid, I just think its funny how people blast a kid and call him all hype when they don't really know whats going on. I'm sure that him at 50% is better than the back up. That is probably why they left him in. When you call a play all 4 guys go out in a route. I guess its there fault that alta left the tight end wide open. Lucky for alta they did. The plays don't work if you keep the TE in to block. But I'm explaining myself to guys that think Bingham ran the same play on the whole drive at the end too.

Okay, so he didn't tell the QB he couldn't see. And I'm fairly sure, without any personal knowledge to back it up, that a school as large and talented as Bingham could manage to produce a backup TE who could perform better as a backup than a blind starter. He missed some balls! It's okay! Everyone does! I'm sure he'll still have a great season.

ProudBigBrother. Give it up...markymark is just defending his son. If they had debate team and chess team comment boards, I would get on to defend my son as well.

After all markymark is pushing the hype. Just look at the Bingham Miners Season Preview 2012 comments. He said "A ton of there reads have the TE as the first target. I guess if they don't get open just blame the system. This kid makes holt look like a little leaguer." Austin Holt plays for BYU and is pretty good. Saying a HS kids makes him look like a little leaguer is hype.

By the way, my son makes Bobby Fischer look like he is just learning to play chess.
