A couple things I learned this weekend:The East/Jordan game showed
that both teams have a better offense than defense. The key to beating both of
those teams his having a high powered offense and defense that can slow them
down. That may be the achilles heel for both teams come playoff time.Region 6 may not be as dominant as everyone thought. Logan and Herriman had 3
touchdown victories over Bountiful and Highland respectively and Woods Cross
barely beats Mountain Crest. The fact that East was leading Jordan prior to
cancelling of the game still bodes well for East and Region 6 for now.Herriman is legit and simply had a bad game against Riverton last week.
Herriman simply dominated Highland throughout the game. The 2 scores Highland
did get appeared to be defensive miscommunications. Expect Herriman to win
Region 7 and then be one of the semifinalists at Rice-Eccles.Utah is
finally starting to improve against out-of-state competition...however, I think
it will take the ending of open enrollment before Utah will see an increase in
national strength overall.
Well, I guess we'll never know who the real #1 in the state is now :( But
to all of those who were professing the unquestionalbe superiority of Jordan
over East, how's that humble pie tasting? I'm pretty sure... let me
check... Yup! Score was 28-27 in favor of East when SLCFD moved in for the kill!
I'm excited to see how Alta and Jordan match up in a couple weeks. I
won't pretend I'm not nervous, as a Hawks fan. Alta's D
isn't what they were last year (though they are still very good, keeping
Bingham to 16 points and a very talented Timpview to 31), but I think their
offense is better.
Eat my words Prep Fan 89. Once again J fans have on thier blinders.
@prep fan 89 qI agree with East will struggle with Jordans super
sophomore quarterback alone I haven't exactly seen him play but everything
I hear about him is nothing but amazing
More like East's D hasn't seen anything like Jordan's offense.
Beating West High and Pineview High are "show up and win" games. East
High is in trouble, I am taking Jordan 45-14 in this one.
wow herriman dropped pretty far from where they where =p
Win a game, jarka-rus. Then start the 5a "power" talk.
I agree, East has no business being ranked the #1 team in the state! Most 5A
schools would also destroy Pine View and West.
Prep Fan 89..no dog in this fight.....but be prepared to eat your
words.I am rooting for Jordan...but the better teams overall are in
4A this year. Watch what you wish for...East is big and they will
eat the clock on you like you have never seen. Be prepared to have the ball 3
times a half....thats the thing you arent considering. They put together long,
clock eating drives. No turnovers and pound you. Good luck to both
teams. If J's offense ic clicking they should barely win it and J wont
score thier normal 40 points.
Jordan hasn't seen anything like Easts D. That qb might get eaten up.
Are you serious with East High as the #1 team in Utah? Jordan will beat them by
3-4 touchdowns this weekend. I think East might be deserving of a #5 or #6
ranking, but no way on this planet are they better than every 5A team in Utah.
That is flat out ridiculous!
Week 3 looks even more exciting! Look for more changes in the top 10 after this
