Cuse, please share why the Titans were the only Team this year so far that gave Mc a close game. The other two games were over by the third qtr. Enlighten us?

I had the opportunity to watch my hometown team last night, Westlake High School play against the new Corner Canyon High School in Draper. First, for the wind we had, it was a great game. As much as I love our home town Thunder. I have to commend Corner Canyon, these kids are well coached and I promise you they are the best 0-3 team in the state. I know they are 4A right now, but I assume they will be 5A before too long. These kids were good. I think the days of Alta dominance is over in Draper. I will say CC will be in the playoffs this year, and it wouldn't shock me if they win a game or two. They had size, speed, they were athletic, and they were flat out good for a first year school, where most first years struggle. I am excited to see how this team does this year. But again, sorry Alta, you only have a few years left. I think Draper is no longer Hawk country, it is Charger country.

Ulu from East is so sick. Jordan was scared of him, quick player avoided him like the plague. I would have to no shame in that, he is a Monster/beast.

Pig Skin,

Good to see you are on the East band wagon. Which team will it be this week? Maybe Davis? I can feel it coming. Syracuse got back their QB from last year and a wide receiver. Things are on the move again. I think his numbers were 6-11 117 yards and a TD. Not bad for a first game start. MC scored on a pick 6 and a long run on a kickoff to get to the 20 and couldn't move the ball. Had to settle for a field goal. MC had 98 total yards for the whole game. 30 of that was passing yards. Was their a threat? Not at all. They do need to come out more focused for Davis. No excuses here. They will be ready to play Thursday night. Count on it!!!!

CC is not the best 0-3 team in the state, Northridge is. CC will not make the playoffs. Who will they beat out? Skyline? Timpanogos? Orem? Olympus?

I too was at the game. I saw two below average teams play.

You're right, that syracuse game was kind of a joke. If our offense plays like that we will loose to davis. And our defense kind of sucked too. Everyone has a bad game and i am glad it was against someone like MC. Kole did alright but they aren't going to win any hard games if they played the way they did last night. But i still have full faith in the titans. I think part of the reason why the titans performance was bad is because our student section was doing horrible. They weren't really pay attention. If we get a good turnout like the highland game i think the boys will play better. At least i hope that was the problem. Davis is tough and it will be a good game if the titans are ready to play hard.

I hear Syracuse is a little beat up and offense still not very productive. Davis 21, Syracuse 17. Is my prediction, Davis is better coached, and slightly superior talent this year. I will watch this one on TV, it's forecasted to rain. Have fun with a loss Cuse fans.

I agree on the Syracuse offense being a little slow but going as far as saying daivs is better coached is ridiculous. Do i need to break out the history book again. Syracuse may not be the best but their constantly up in there every single year. Davis has the better talent this year and IF daivs wins then that will be the only reason why. Syracuse has a really good program but their offense is lacking this year. I can see this going either way, it just depends. I mean you thought highland was going to walk over syracuse. Same thing can happen this week. It will take a lot of effort but I can see Syracuse coming away with it. It all just depends if the offense can get rolling fast enough. We'll see tomorrow which one is the best. I know nothing is for certain but whoever wins this game is probably going to win regions. Everyone else in the region is a little off this year except Syracuse and Davis. It should be a really interesting game. I'm looking forward to it; no matter the outcome.

I should have said better coached Offensively. Syracuse is too predictable on Offense, always has, easy to defend without much game planning. It will be close I agree. Still Davis 21, Syracuse 17. Just saying.

I kind of agree, the offense needs to mix it up. Kole is an okay QB but he ran way to much during the MC game and i think thats why it was bad for the titans. He's a pretty big dude. And not very fast. He has a heck of an arm he just needs to get more comfortable with it and his receivers. I agree that if they don't change up something on offense then their not going to get really far. They have some good talent in there, they just need to activate it. I don't really think it will be a high scoring game, at least not 21-17. Davis has only given up 2 touchdowns all season and, and syracuse has a killer defense too. Every year except maybe last year it has always been a close; low scoring game. If syracuse looses that way i won't mind, I just want a good game for the people watching on tv. I want syracuse to win, and i think they could, it just depends on if they get their offense going.

Bring on the Titans,

I might agree with what you say, new prediction; Davis 14, Syracuse 10. I gave the offense to much credit at 17 points. And not enough credit to the Defense. This will be a better TV for Defense lovers.

Pig Skin,

Your still on par. I know the defense has been scored on 14 points and that was all highland. Kole will be fine. Whats cool about this weeks game is the two teams run the same offense and defense. It will depend on who wants it more. Last week during the MC game, there was never a doubt that the game was in trouble. Davis does have weapons and it will be cool to see how the night plays out. Remember the Titans don't let Pig tell ya what to think, he is a big band wagon jumper. Stay strong Titan. It will be good tomarrow night. Highland was suppose to bury us in our own backyard. Go Cuse!!!

@UtahBruin, @airliner

I was at the Westlake to watch my nephew play (Corner Canyon). I not only agree that CC will make the playoffs, I think they have a legit chance of winning their region. Airliner apparently is able to attend 3 games every Friday that all start at the same time (What were you doing at the Westlake/CC game anyway?). Other than Olympus, CC can beat any of the other teams (Orem has been getting smashed, Skyline lost to the same Juan Diego team that beat CC in the last minute of the half of the game at Home and Timpanogos isnʻt all that great).
On the other hand, Westlake deserves a ton of credit! They are the only team that really outplayed CC thus far this season. CC scored 2 late TDʻs. Westlake fell asleep thinking it was over after they scored their last TD. We found out later that Westlake has around 5 Freshman starters and those kids were making tackles and interceptions throughout the night. They may take their beatings now because of their region, but watch out for them for the next few years!!!
