i agree with footballfan22 the seeding was wrong for the other schools who worked so hard to get the top seed to make it easier for them when comes play off time and they'll get a lower seed team. And for those who watched that East vs Logan game, dont pad youself on the back just yet Logan, you just caught East at a vaunerable time. They looked like they didnt even want to play. Sources told me that they found out that there season was cut off. players didnt want to play anymore. the coaches werent even yelling at them or making any adjustments. like some of the comments ive seen during the season some of herrimans fans stated they are just as good as East or even BETTER, now's ur chance to prove it. As for Logan, if u get to the Title game cause im pretty sure East will be there. Im pretty sure you'll find Real East High Football Team.

First of all no one at Logan is "padding" themselves on the back. They are focused on the game against Timpview. That's the only game that matters to them right now. Not once have I heard anyone from Logan on these boards say anything derogatory about East. Logan has played East 3 times in the last year and I think that they know better than anyone how good East is. When you come on here and start putting Logan down, it just makes you look like you're making excuses. Logan doesn't make excuses, they just play the games that are handed to them. I sincerely hope that Logan gets to play East again but it won't be in the Title game because we are on the same side of the bracket.

Timpview will beat East.

Logan has beat East.

So I am taking the winner of the Timpview vs Logan game as your next State Champion over Mtn Crest.

Big game tomorrow. East is thrid best. and if they "didnt want to play against Logan because they thought the season was over-not motivated" then I really take East as third. True players play no matter what.

We all know logan doesn't make excuses lol.


UHSAA is a joke. They have shown a repeated pattern of failing to enforce rules and this latest example is typical. Instead of doing what is right, they bow down to pressure-usually when that pressure is threatened litigation. What is truly sad about that is they are sitting on millions of dollars that could be used to mount a legal defense. I work at a high school and personally know the money made by UHSAA in gates from games all across the state-it is a jaw-dropping amount! Why they don't have the guts to take a stand is beyond me. What I do know is that it is destroying what good there is left in amateur sports. To me, it is just another example of the disintegration of integrity in our society, but made worse by the fact that this organization is connected to the education of our children. If kids are not taught integrity, there will be NO hope of changing this trend in our society. The UHSAA is apparently just the latest morally defunct organization to add to the tapestry of moral degradation blanketing our society. Thanks UHSAA for ultimately harming kids...
