Go aggies, find it funny that your earlier post you chose to bag on LP. Heck
they gave Jordan a much better game than Syracuse. Like I said in an earlier
post. Jordan's Offensive line is too good. I do have to say I think Alta or
Bingham would have made a much better game. Sorry Syracuse, No Defense, No
Offense equals 2 points. Congrats on a great season though!!
You can't claim that Jarka-rus because THEY WEREN'T THERE and
we'll never know.
Jordan would not have blanked and put up 51 at the half on Bingham.
serious woodshed stuff. Copper Hills gave up only 49. Jordan is really good
and we all knew it but it is difficult for Syracuse to continue to claim #1
defense in the state when someone hangs 51 in a half. Apparently they
didn't bring all that heart they played with the last two weeks. Most of us realized Syracuse had overachieved. Proudbigbrother was
right all the way. Syracuse was opportunitic the last two weeks and they
deserve and get credit for doing so but the other shoe has dropped today. Jordan
is not giving them any opportunities.Will be interesting to see the
angles taken by the faithful. someone might even throw out there (again) that
the game was closer than the score indicated.
calprepsI have no idea how Alta or Bingham lost to Syracuse.
Hey Remember-The-Titan'sI've covered my 42 points, and it
isn't even half time!Syracuse will be lucky to score. They will
probably produce once Jordan has sat their starters. Brock Anderson
doesn't even make a dent in this game if he's healthy, as Jordan is
just way too talented. Should've been an Alta Jordan final. Alta gave it
@UtahBruinJordan is going to put way more than 42 on Syracuse
Jordan 63Syracuse 3 maybe
Man, how did Bingham choke against Syracuse!? They should be there right now.
They wouldn't beat Jordan, but we all know Bingham has the #1 Defense in
the state, just wish the offense had showed up last week, wow! BTW he's a
sophomore, he's a sophomore, he's a sophomore!
Go Diggers!Can you say total domination in the first quarter.
23-0Against good offenses the Syracuse defense is not that good!Jordan is just getting started. My prediction was 41-17 for the Diggers, and
they're already haf way there and the first quarter hasn't ended. Coach Kjar will not let up. He will go for the juggular just as Urban
Meyer does. Unless Syracuse gets some offense going soon, this one will be ugly.
@ Remember-The-TitansI'm not taking anything away from Syracuse at
this point; they are where they deserve to be. But saying "Turnovers are [a
part] of football, so stop using them as excuses for the team loosing" makes
no sense. It's not an excuse, it's a valid reason. Five turnovers by a
team will generally result in a loss for that team, whether it was forced by the
other team's defense or by the offense simply not taking care of the ball.
But it's true that Alta and Bingham vastly out-gained Syracuse in offensive
yards, but didn't capitalize on the yards gained because of turnovers,
resulting in the Syracuse victories.Total Yards:Alta 417 vs Syracuse
240 (177 yard difference)Bingham 325 vs Syracuse 209 (116 yard
difference)With so few yards gained in victories, clearly Syracuse was
playing from excellent field position, which is caused by turnovers. So give
Syracuse credit, both for creating or recovering the turnovers, and for
capitalizing on the turnovers by converting them into points! But to be
successful against Jordan they will have to do the same thing, and then some!
Good luck to both teams! Kickoff in 10 minutes!
@ calprepsTrue, the first two touchdowns were largly due to Alta mistakes,
not Syracuse defense. The fumble for 6 that Handley gave up was painful, and
Alta did not make the defensive stop on the botched handoff that created a short
field for Syracuse to score.
Good Game Dixie deserved it all the way, and yes the South wins. 2 years now the
state trophy is down South. Region 9 is the strongest, it dont matter what seed
you come in at ha ha.
Ok calpreps what is your excuse for bingham losing to the titans? Syracuse beat
alta, not alta beat alta. Yes it is true that alta fumbled, but it's what
they do after that decideds who won. Syracuse acted on the fumbles and came up
with the win. Syracuse Defense is better then Alta. That was proven, give
syracuse credit. They beat Alta and bingham. Turnovers are apart of football, so
stop using them as excuses for the team loosing. Syracuse is talented and they
deserve to be in the finals. It is the #1 versus #2 team in the state. And who
ever wins is the best, no mater how many turnovers there are.
I agree mostly with you ProudBigBrother, however, the two turnovers in the first
quarter of the Alta Syracuse game that led to Syracuse points, were not caused
by Syracuse. Alta forced those two turnovers. 1st one, the running back never
got a clean handoff from Lucero, and literally dropped the ball before ever
being hit by a Titan defender. Syracuse recovered. 2nd one, Handley dropped the
ball when he turned to run upfield, again never being hit by a defender, and the
ball just happened to bounce straight up in the air into the awaiting arms of a
Titan defender who returned the ball for a touchdown. First turnover created a
very short field for the Titan offense to score. Alta like has been said before,
spotted Syracuse 17 straight points, due to their own mistakes in the first
quarter of that game. The rest of the way, til the end of the 3rd quarter, Alta
outscored Syracuse 24-7. Yes Syracuse scored once more in the 4th, but again, if
Alta never gives the game away in the 1st Quarter, this game would not have been
close. Alta passed for almost 400yds. Jordan is better and will beat Syracuse.
Timpview over Mountain Crest in a blowout, Spanish Fork over Dixie in a close
game. Jordan over Syracuse, but I don't know if it'll be
close or not. Syracuse's great defense against Alta and Bingham was due to
their ability to create turnovers. I don't know about Bingham, but Alta was
still able to put up a lot of yards on Syracuse, and the turnovers were the
difference. Jordan definitely has the same, actually better ability to gain
yards and score than Alta did, so wether the Jordan win is close or not will
depend on if Syracuse can continue the turnover generating trend vs the best
offense in the state. I predict a final score of 34-21 Jordan if Syracuse does
NOT force turnovers, and 24-21 Jordan if the turnovers happen (don't get
mad at me, Syracuse fans! It's just a prediction! I would be saying
Syracuse pulls off the upset if Anderson were playing!).
These games should be fun to watch! I think they could all be closer than one
might think.But if I have to choose it will be Jordan,Timpview and Dixie. High
school sports embodies so many good things about sports competition. If you
really want to get a good feeling about how sports can inpact people go read the
story about the high school coach from Jordan that is online today. Wow what an
The Jordan/Lone Peak game was alittle closer than people think. The score was
36-14 in favor of Jordan. If you remember Lone Peak had the ball deep in Jordan
territory with out getting points. Jordans defense shut them down. Lone Peaks
offense was one dimensional. The QB would tuck the ball and run. I dont know
where some of these people like Prep Fanatic is getting those numbers foor the
final score. Lets remember Davis took Lone Peak to the wire with what. Lone Peak
got lucky to win that game. Jordan will not put up numbers like that. Write it
down the "Cuse" will not break, they bend a bit but wont break. Plus we
have 3 starters back to help with the passing game. Jordan is a goood team no
doubt about it and they have great athletes. I think Syracuse has the best
defensive coach in the state hands down. Let me once again remind all of you
nay sayers that there are no not one returning starters on either side of the
ball for the "Cuse". Write it down again the TITANS will win on friday.
Too much heart and grit. Go Titans.
I am totally agreeing with UtahBruin on the jordan and syracuse thing. Syracuse
has shut down the other 2 high powered offence's and yet again no respect.
I don't see how you can get 42-14, have you never seen Syracuse play. I
agree that Jordan has the best offence in the state. I am not doubting that, but
what people don't realize is that Syracuse has the best Defense in the
state. I don't want to say it but i think that Jordan will win, but it will
be a close game. Give some respect. This is the State Championship, the game
will be a lot closer then you think. If lone peak can give 35 points, I am
positive that Syracuse will will do better on defense. there is no way lone
peak's defense is better. Sorry, but its the truth.
@PrepFanaticI agree with you. Jordan is way talented on the
offensive side of the ball. But for that score prediction, you have obviously
not seen Syracuse play defense. Jordan will not put up 42 on Syracuse
Jordan 42 Syracuse 14Jordan is way to talented on the offensive side
of the ball!
Looks like the "Red Coats" are picking Dixie and the "Blue
Coats" are picking Fork. No surprise there. I watched both games. And all
I can say is that both teams are really good. As for OneManWolfPack, to say
Desert Hills beat themselves. I do know that SF dominated the line of
scrimmage, now it was sloppy out there. But do not sell SF short, I know and
agree the Flyers are good. Like I said, this is really going to be a great
game. I like Dixies speed for their team on the offensive side of the ball and
power, it will be tested against SF D-Line, I am just not sure the Flyer
DB's can keep up with the SF passing attack. If they do, the Flyers win,
if not which I am not sure they can, SF wins close because Dixie controls the
clock and still scores. I will be honest, I am judging Dixie off of one game
"in the snow". At the begining of it all, I had D Hills and Dixie
playing for the title. I give Spanish the nod here. Doesn't mean I am
right, just my pick.
"8"No, just laughing louder. I agree with u on not being a
JD fan. Not a Dixie fan either. Serious about football and love great high
school games. It was that. Who earned that game? I guess I am serious on that
@ru seriousru Im not even a jd fan so I have no sides in this arguement.
And your right I didnt watch the gam arguement. And your right I didnt watch the
game so you are probably right but all I know that jd missed an extra and that
helps constitue the fact of a team could have beat thenselves
JD didn't bring their A game, that's for sure...and a lot of dumb
penalties. But I'm not sure anyone beats themselves in the snow.
It's all about who can make the best adjustments because most teams
aren't used to the snow. Dixie did a better job than JD the other night at
adjusting their game plan.
@fball fan8Did you watch the same game I did. Dixie beat them at
their own game, the run. 10 passes by Dixie is all. "8", the game is
over. Again, did you watch the same game that I watched? You know, when I first
read your post I was a bit perplexed, but now I am laughing. Thanks "8"
We should call the 3A championship game the civil war except this time the south
@onemanwolfpackYou could say the same with juan diego and dixie that juan
diego beat themselves
Dixie will beat Spanish Fork! Desert Hills beat themselves, Dixie won't.
All of these games should just be unreal games to watch. I really do not see
any of them just running away with the title this year like some games in years
past. Don't know if I am right but here are my picks:3A
Champion - Spanish Fork 35 - Dixie 284A Champion - Timpview 38 -
Mtn. Crest 355A Champion - Jordan 24 - Syracuse 17
