    To mykal...
    My info is not wrong and although I am a grad of Dixie I didn't care who won the game. My beef is with programs that play by different and unfair rules and then proclaim themselves to be the greatest. Jd has unfair advantages that the rest of 3A doesn't. they did it in2A and now they are doing it to the 3A. It is not right and it is not fair whether they win or lose it still isn't right.

    joseywales, you are clearly biased. Since when do wet conditions and cold weather make it harder to run than pass?

    Region 9 is the real deal! Remember Dixie was Ranked 3rd in Region 9! Also before Zac Prince got hurt in the game against DHHS they were winning 21-7 and DHHS came back and won, does the QB make a difference? Uh yes. You take away Blake Barney from Dixie think they win? NO! Take Ty Rutledge or Money from SF think they make it this far? NO! Region 9 is the Real Dael and have been in the State Finals 5 years running! Just Saying what other Region has done that? Oh None.

    Well, I was 1/2 right on my picks in 3A. DHHS should have prevailed against Spanish Fork, but that one big glaring mistake sealed their fate.

    Way to go Flyers! You have done something we never could. That was not a great performance by the Flying Eagle tonight. They haven't made those kinds of mistakes all year and choose the big semifinal game to do it. Region 9 is still the toughest region in the top 6 programs, and maybe this is the year we win another championship. Blake Barney is still the best QB in the division and our game with them could have gone the other way if not for some bad breaks on their final drive. I think the championship will be a great one.

    So I guess we can put josewales excuse on a shelve with Hurricane's if we had our QB it would have been different right?

    Wailing josey, the adverse weather card would be one much more plausible if JD were the ones out of their element in it. The fact that Dixie, who rarely, if ever plays a game in less than 55 degree weather, was the one to drive 300 miles to it and stuff the vaunted Soaring Eagle rushing game is a testament to their mettle. A team needing better conditions to get their running game going is a sorry excuse, Dixie came better prepared and gets to prepare for SF with no asterisk or "9/10" derision from you because the 1/1 time that actually happened...well we know how it went.

    Proud of the only blue team I'll ever represent. Hope to be there next week, go Flyers!

    Sorry joseywales, but the crappy weather affected both teams! Barney could have lit that place up in better conditions. Dixie won, JD lost. End of story

    Well done JD, always a great bunch that play a great game, but hats off to my Dixie Flyers. Go take state boys. @joseywales - Not to pile on you, but region 9 is consistently the deepest region in 3A. They don't always have the best team in 3A, but when you usually get 2 teams to the semi-finals year in and year out, you're doing something right. They occasionally have their off years where they only get one, but they make it up by getting 3 into the final 4 other years.

    Riley's pick6, yep, I do. Everyone needs to be honest and admit that in better conditions, this game is another JD win. I'm not a JD supporter, so I have no vested interest with my remarks, other than to point out the obvious, and that is, that BOTH teams struggled. Barney's stat sheet is laughable, yet he punched it in 2 times, so kudos to him. Throwing the ball he looked like your boy Riley. The JD run game is among the best in the state as Hurricane found out last week, yet in sloppy conditions, that is a hard one to get going. Likewise the Flyer passing attack. Both teams had numerous TO's and overall, it was not representative of either schools strengths this year. However, I will give credit where it's due tonight, and that is that Dixie found a way to win. The best team doesn't always win the game, and that's what happened tonight. JD wins 9/10 times against this team, however, tonight was the lone victory that Dixie needed. Congrats to the Flyers, and good luck next week.

    And that is why they play the game!!! Congrats to DHHS on a great season, but big time kudos to Dixie on making it to the State Championship!!! Nobody is a "cupcake" when you get to the semi-finals, I don't care what region you are from.

    I guess I was wrong about all region 9 teams being a cupcake for JD.Nice win Dixie! Nice season JD! Good luck Dixie next Week!

    I guess you were wrong Mykaljordan. 14-13 Dixie. JD and their money lose again. Two years in a row. Very nice

    My friend, your prediction was 1/2 right.

    I think JD was better than Hurricane this year but Hurricane losing their QB (Zach Prince) was a big blow. In that type of offense the QB is a huge dual threat. Prince is a three-time state wrestling champ and tough as nails and a born leader. You can't lose that type of athlete and expect not to be effected greatly especially against an excellent team like Juan Diego.

    What is really neat about John James is it never has to worry about about well .......... Ask East, Timpview, and so on. Boundaries? Well there are none. On a positive note, they have high standards and they do win graciously.

    @joseywales, I don't remember anybody necessarily saying that region 9 has the best team, only the best region. JD, Spanish Fork, and Stansbury all do have cupcake regions. Every OTHER team in all 3 of their regions wouldn't finish in the top 4 in region 9 more than likely.I do however think that JD and SF would contend for the region championship year in and year out.This year, it looks like any team from region 9 would continue to be a cupcake on JD's schedule. They should win it all this year.

  • joseywales Park City, UT
    Nov. 9, 2012 5:34 p.m.

    Man I hope JD wins this game! I've heard a gut full all year about how great Region 9 is. True, they had 2 semi-finalists, and had 3 ranked teams all year, but so what? Rankings mean nothing in high school football. When JD wins, that's a Region 9 shutout for the championship. I guess the southerners will keep saying that SF and JD playing those "cupcake" schedules makes it easier to get there, but I just say R9- Overrated!

    there is no money given to players good or bad, your information is totally wrong.! my son plays for JD #55 and trust me no money is given to any player to better the situation at home. there is academic assistance, but its not free. the parents have to put in hours at the school,and help out at school activities, the kids need to keep their grades up and maintain them. no matter where you go in this world, whenever someone is doing good, you have those that try to hold them back or make excuses to why the successful, succeed.

    maybe I should try to get some money to buy some diapers for baby..

    can you post the excuse your going to use tomorrow...today..!! JD has thier hands full with Dixie,but IMO I think JD wil pull off the win...

    JD 42 Dixie 14..

    I do know that it is really hard to contain a running QB in high school so that gives Dixie a shot

  • sportrealist FILLMORE, UT
    Nov. 9, 2012 2:36 p.m.

    JD is in the best of worlds. They are perfectly located to attract all the players that can't quite make it at the larger schools. They also have money to give out to good players (i'm sure they will tell you it is for academic assistance) that need a good home. and as for being the best coaches, well they are very good, but to really be labeled as the greatest, send them to Milford or Enterprise etc. where they have to coach only the local kids, can't go out and get what you need from some other program and have to pull someone out of the halls and teach them the game. Then if they have the kind of success that they are now having I will join you and coronate them as the greatest. someone there recruit. they have tried to get one of the young men from our area to come to their school

  • louis65 Hurricane, UT

    Should be a good game. After JD destroyed Hurricane, a couple of questions arise. Is JD really that good, or was Hurricane that bad. I think tonights game will show this. Hurricane just squeaked by Dixie with a win. Hurricane struggled against JD second team. Cand Dixie compete, or is JD on a different level all together? Have to wait and see. Good luck to both teams. Go Tigers....doh!

    I couldn't pass up on the opportunity to give you a hard time. When you're on top for so long, and JD will continue to be for years to come unless it loses its coach, you're going to take shots. More than any sport, coaching is the key to success in high school football. Talent is second. If anyone questions that, they only need to look at Pine View.

    That aside, good luck today to both teams. I'm pulling for Dixie, but recognize that it's a long shot. In all the years I've been watching high school football, I haven't encountered classier fans than JD's. Some have said it is easier to be classy when you're on top, which is partially true, but nobody is making mykaljordan invite visiting teams' families and fans to his tailgates.

    @lonzo and southpride,

    I figured out the recruiting process works...its simple..!

    The way that JD's Football team plays and wins is all the recruitig needed..!! kids want to play for a top notch football program and JD has it. Kids every where want to be a part of a Proven program that has the records to show it. Coaches dont go looking for Good kids to play for JD, Good Kids come looking for Great Coaches...and the Best Coaches in State are at JD..(highest winning percentage in state)

    Best of luck to both teams. Is there a tailgate going on? How many 8th Grade football phenoms will be there eating the fabulous teriyaki burgers as part of their campus visit?
