Why would I find it hard to believe that Roy would beat teams like Pine View,
Dixie and Spanish Fork in 3A. Or in 4A beating a team like Highland. Or in 5A
beating a team like Pleasant Grove or Layton? Or even 2A teams like San Juan or
Manti. Roy is definitely feel good story of the year but I'm not sure they
are this good.
I am biased...but I am wondering why Lone Peak, Mountain Crest and Davis are
ranked above Herriman.Lone Peak: 2-2WINS: +2 over Mountain
Crest and +24 over HighlandLOSS: -10 to Bountiful and -3 to TimpviewMy take: Lone Peak has one more loss than Herriman and has a similar result
with common opponent Highland. Looks like Lone Peak is being given credit for
staying close in Bountiful and Timpview losses.Mountain Crest:
2-2WINS: +40 over Mountain View and +31 over WeberLOSS: -2 to Lone
Peak and -3 to Woods CrossMy take: Mountain Crest has one more loss than
Herriman. Looks like Mountain Crest is being given credit for staying close in
Lone Peak and Woods Cross losses.Davis: 3-1WINS: +28 over
Viewmont, +11 over Cottonwood and +23 over HunterLOSS: -7 to BrightonMy take: Davis has the same record as Herriman. Davis' 3 wins are not as
impressive has Herriman's 3 wins and the loss to Brighton is either equal
to or worse than Herriman's one loss.I believe Herriman should
be in the #13 spot in Utah.
I'm biased too, but that's what happens when you lose games that you
shouldn't. the Riverton loss still kills me. After re-watching that game,
I'm more convinced that Herriman should have killed those guys. I think
the problem was that the Herriman kids walked out there expecting to thump them,
and sadly, I think the Riverton kids wanted it more. It looked like it was more
important to them.Hopefully, Herriman learned a valuable lesson,
because they shouldn't lose a region game, but Skyline, and especially Oly,
are good enough to beat them if they have another week like Riverton.
Relax Benzo, rankings don't mean a whole lot, especially at this point in
the season. Be patient, and region play will probably sort everything out.
East better be ready, cause the CATS are on the prowl. It will be close but I
see a WX victory on our field Friday night. I like our match ups with East, more
talent. This is our year!! Let's GO CATS!!! Let's GO WX!!!!
Re: just sayinI thought last year was your year....as you kept
reminding us every week until Timpview wrecked you rather easily.But
it's a new year. I do think though WX is legit this year. But I still take
East. U will be a happy camper come Friday night if you can take East
"just sayin"......good luck
@Benzo First, please remember that the rankings have no bearings on
qualifying for state--they are bragging rights, nothing more.
Herriman has shown glimpses of greatness but they are victims of negative
momentum. Thrashing Orem would have had a greater impact, but the Tigers began
the season 0-2 with a loss at home to 3A Pine View--momentum killer. A narrow
loss to Riverton would not hurt except for the fact that the Silverwolves were
shutout the next week.dropped the next two games--momentum killer. Beating
Highland, whose wins are over winless opponents (West, Cedar) isn't much to
hang a hat on. Compare that to your research on Lone Peak, Davis,
and Mt. Crest. The DesNews did their homework.
@Sampson - I like your points. Herriman and fans like me simply have to be
patient. The Riverton loss hurt very bad and Orem and Highland have not
performed up to their level. In the end, I think Orem, Riverton, Highland,
Copper Hills, Hillcrest, Skyline and Olympus will all make the playoffs giving
Herriman games against 7 playoff teams.So I believe our wins over
Orem, Highland and Copper Hills will be more valuable later in the season. Even
though the Riverton loss hurt, I believe it will prove important to the team as
to the important of staying focused to the end.I'm still
expecting Herriman to win Region 7 and make the playoffs. I would love to see
how Herriman matches up with Logan, Mountain Crest, Timpview, East, WX or
BigBenzo88. I do think Herriman could make it to the Semi Finals if they get a
few breaks. I see them losing in the quarters. Just my opinion. By
the way Copper Hills will finish below CW and not make the playoffs. Riverton
will likely be the 4th seed from Region 4, unless they get upset by Lehi or AF.
Orem will likely end up the #4 team in Region 8. I think either Olympus or
Skyline doesn't make it. Either way, you will have played 3 playoff teams
from your weak region 7. By far the bottom of 4A. All of the playoff teams you
will have played will be out in the first round. Most in blowouts. Just sayin...
you haven't played anyone yet.
