this one won't be close. Jordan's air attack will be to much for Syracuse to handle. Two weeks ago, Alta had almost 400 yards passing against Syracuse, and scored 24 pts. Jordan's offense is more potent than Alta's, as they also have a very potent running attack that will bight you once the air attack is established. Syracuse's only hope is to score allot of points on Friday.

Coach Kjar's influence started in 2005 as the offensive coordinator, when Sean Taylor was a junior. Before that year, Jordan was running the speed option offense. In 2004, Jordan's offense only passed for about 600 yards, with Sean Taylor running it. As a junior, after Coach Kjar's arrival, he threw for 2300 yards (not accounted for in the article),so in the eight years with Kjar, the Jordan offense has been high flying. Also, Jordan's record-setting wide receiver, Cody Raymond, had his first TD reception at BYU last Saturday, Keep an eye on him.

Coach Kjar is a great play caller and offensive coach. This years team is definitely a run first team with an outstanding offensive line and two good runners with Moss and Kafentsis. While the Jordan qb's in the past have been great passers, none of them was a threat to run as much as Kafentzzis is. If you don't slow down their run game you have no chance of beating Jordan.
Syracuse was able to shut down Bingham's run game, and other than Alta nobody has been able to put up any passing numbers on them either. I don't think it will be quite the blowout others do but I don't see Syracuase being able to stop the Jordan O line and the run game.

re: plyxply: "While the Jordan qb's in the past have been great passers, none of them was a threat to run as much as Kafentzzis is."

plyxply you've been around the block I know. Sean Taylor really was a better runner and passer than Kafentzis is. The REAL difference is his line, hands down the best line in the state. Taylor was a nightmare to contain (passing and throwing) even with a poor line. ALL props need to be brought back to the o-line, those guys are what really makes this team go.

In this era of high powered offense I suppose you could say Kafentzis will be best signal caller ever from Jordan, but I would be willing to bet if you threw into this spread option a QB or two from the 80's, 90's and 2000's that Jordan has had they would be as good or better than Jordan's current QB. Jordan has had some seriously good QB's, you Jordan guys know what I'm talking about.
