I think all of us in Kamas was expecting a better game. We were most defiantly
out coached. But we shouldn't be surprised by the outcome, this happens
every year. If we are not winning by 20 points then our coach doesn't know
what to do. We have no one on the staff that knows how to motivate the kids when
their down. The half time looker room was quite. No adjustments were made. It
was clear to me that we didn't do our homework on Manti. Don't get me
wrong it would have been difficult to beat them if we had some coaching. Manti
has a great program and the whole 3A thing is no excuse. They clearly knew to
avoid playing head to head with #5 Hayden Packard and #2 Porter Santos. But just
like the semi final last year, the defensive coaching was good but our offence
couldn't capitalize. Manti knew who could cover their receivers and who
would have a problem. 2+2=4, watch the film coach it's not rocket science.
It's obvious Manti did. Thanks to KSL being there sorry for the blowout.
I don't see Millard spoiling the party this year. Although I was quite
suprised they beat a much larger (physically & numbers) Emery team.
Hopefully the 3A schools playing in 2A including Manti, Emery, & Richfield
will get moved back to 3A when the six classifications for football starts in
fall 2013. But I will give props to Manti's coaching staff, they
outcoached Millard's staff last year in the State game bigtime. Although
it is not hard to prepare for Millard's offense they only run about 10
different play's and never change formations. It is time to get a new
offense, the inverted bone only works if you have an outstanding QB that can
actually run the option.
To EJB, I looked it up in two different places and came up with 485
enrolled in GCHS from one place and 486 from the other. San Juan was 409. So to
compare Moab with Richfield, Manti, or any other 2A school with 600 kids is
ridiculous. San Juan has a great football program, always has, probably will as
long as the coaching doesn't change. Moab has a young team, and we'll
be happy to have a winning season. I see San Juan vs Manti in the finals, if
Millard doesn't spoil the party again!
Rankings mean nothing! The only thing that counts is who is leading at the end
of the Championship Game!
The North is getting pretty interresting with Manti dominating SS, who dominated
Millard, who dominated Emery, who was leading, but eventually lost to Manti by
1. Will be fun to see what happens when SS plays Emery and Millard plays
Manti.Manti still #1 in my book. We'll have to see what the DNews
says.EJB, sorry you don't get any competition in the South, but at
least your JV gets alot of experience.
If it was that simple, Richfield and Moab would be more competitive.
It's pretty easy to be tough in 2A when you have over 600 students in your
It sounds like the most prepared coach won in 2A again. 2A north certainly has
better teams than 2A south. When will San Juan ever have competition in their
