Looks from here. I also believe that it will be an all Region 3 semi-finals.
As for Edwards Edge, I only disagree with two.I think Morgan beats
Manti, and I think Desert Hills beats Stansbury. However, that is a long way to
travel for DH and rematch and beat Stansbury twice in a year.The
rest I agree with for Edwards Edge!
I wish we could see an overall State Champion. Some fairly accurate
hypothetical picks per say. Just don't allow so many teams who
shouldn't be there into the playoffs, and you could keep closely the same
amount of games. Imagine more of this:3A Champ Judge Memorial3AA Champ Juan Diego4A East5A Bingham#4 Seed (11-2)

As expencted Region 3 sweeps Region 4. Bingham and East wins State.
Don't sleep on Timpview....they are going about their business and nobody
is talking about them. I think they would give Bingham and East a tough game, if
not win it.4A- Timpview5A- Bingham
Only a 9 pt margin for Bingham over Riverton? Add another 14 pts to that and
it's about right.
Exactly. How does Bingham drop in rating points? Having gone undefeated, and
beating 4 of the remaining 8 teams in the playoffs. Somebody's formula
needs to be adjusted. And I totally agree with the Herriman comment. Brighton
shows everybody that this Herriman team, although a scrappy team, is really
mediocre when it comes to pure talent.
don't worry about Parry's rating points for Bingham, they will win
this one going away. Just worry about the W's
@Parry is a Farce - Always enjoy your statistical research. Here's the
thing: The line between Herriman being 6-6 or 11-1 after this week is very thin.
Herriman has 5 losses by a total of 42 points which is a margin of 8.4 points. 3
losses were by 4 points or less, 1 to the best team in the state. So
there's a good chance Herriman could lose, there's an equally good
chance they win. Brighton's running style plays into Herriman's
strength. Regardless of the winner...this game is decided by 14 points or
less.Alta at Lone PeakPleasant Grove at JordanBrighton
at HerrimanLone Peak & their QB are playing better. Playing at
home gives them the slight "upset".Pleasant Grove &
Jordan are very similar teams. Both have offenses that are equally lethal.
Defensive edge goes to Pleasant Grove. PG does just enough to keep the game
close and win the game on the final drive.Brighton & Herriman is
a closer match up. Brighton has a powerful O-Line and a powerful running back.
Herriman has an elusive running back that creates points. Look for a game that
is finally won at home by Herriman.
Benzo, Bingham wins by 14 or more, Jordan wins by 14 or more, Alta wins by 14 or
more and Brighton wins by 7
I agree with almost 100% of your assessment Parry. Especially with your
statement of why 5-5 teams are 5-5, and why 11-1 teams are 11-1. As for the
teams making it with 5-5 records, I almost 100% agree. But I do think Alta is a
bit different. They have a very explosive offense. And I think they are coming
together some at the right time. I think they pull this one out. Jordan
I'm not so sure about. If they had showed any bit of defense this year, I
would say Jordan for sure. But that defense is so bad, I can see them giving up
enough points to lose. My call still is a 4-0 record for region 3 after the
quarters. But I could see Jordan losing. I think Brighton wins by at least 14.
Brighton and Herriman will not be close. Brighton beats Herriman by 17 points.
Jordan kills pleasant grove. If they had played Jordan's schedule, they
would have gone 2-8. Maybe 3-7.
I love how so many are counting Herriman out, we like it that way. Nothing to
justify at this point, records don't matter or rankings. It is the
playoffs so its a new season. I hope Brighton over looks Herriman and all
of the Region 3 teams do the same. Region 4 will not be swept. I will start my
talking after the games are complete. Nothing against Brighton, however the
only quality win was against Alta. Herriman's tougher schedule will pay
@JDiggerWell let's see...PG vs Fremont - Same
result, PG wins big. 1-0PG vs Cathedral Catholic Calif. - Same result, PG
loses. 1-1PG vs. East - Same result, PG loses. 1-2PG vs. Bergen
Cath. NJ - Same result, PG loses. 1-3PG vs Herriman - Same result, PG
wins. 2-3PG vs. Copper Hills - Same result, PG wins. 3-3PG vs. Alta
- I am going to say same result, PG wins. 4-3 (*Only thing I have to go off of
is Timprview beat Alta, and PG beat Timpview. PG vs. Bingham - Same
result, PG loses. 4-4PG vs. Brighton - Same result, PG loses. 4-5PG
vs West Jordan - Same result, PG wins. 5-5PG vs. Hunter - Same result, PG
wins. 6-5PG scores almost as much as Jordan, they give up less.
And what do you know, PG would have been 6-5, just like Jordan is. I would love
to think who else they would have lost the 3 or 4 other games too that Jordan
didn't also.If Jordan played PG's schedule, I venture to
say they have the same record also as PG.
Parry is a Farce ?That is the point, Brighton has not played
anyone other that Alta and Bingham, They are 1-1. What evidence do you have to
say an easy win for Brighton, None ! Other than record ?
Well I'm off to Bingham, Get the referee pre game talked about, go over
Keys, Situational plays, Overtime, Ejections, Sideline control, Mechanics,
Untimed downs and all the good stuff that us Refs watch for in a game. Enjoy
your teams game and I hope everyone's team wins tonight. Good Luck, and oh
ya Go Diggers GDP!
