ND40, There are many people that still have the right to feel bitter
with East. In saying that, I feel so bad for ALL the East players but they
should not have been allowed to compete. The coaches and administration their
knew exactly what they were doing and the UHSAA practically chickened out of
making a HUGE statement by allowing them back in the playoffs.Had
they stuck with the decision to leave them out, every student on that EAST team
would have learned a great lesson in life on INTEGRITY and how they paid the
price for their leaders' dishonesty. The lesson learned now is
that with a few sad faces and heart pulling stories, you'll be able to
weasel your way out for a second chance even though more people were affected by
it in the long run (Herriman, Logan, Box Elder, Cyprus and all other schools
that were affected by the playoff seedings).With it all said and
done, they still didn't win the championship so the one feel good story
they had left (winning it all) to justify the decision is gone and the haunting
will now begin.
@ND40 East shouldn't have even participated...actions that are made by
others, but those actions are still made as a team regardless of ones that
didn't know because everyone can claim that they "didn't know"
rules are rules and unfair ruling by a board that had no ground to uplift the
sanctions that were completely fair and right the first time. Yeah, yeah some of
them are innocent players, guess the whole system is like playing monopoly
now...glad East lost!
So proud of our Timpview defense. With 9 new starters and a new DC in Todd
Cusick, they have made great strides in solidifying themselves as one of the
best in the state. All the press (deservedly) goes to Jake Lloyd and an amazing
offense. That seems to be fine with our defensive unit. Most teams that have
played us this year (excepting Alta & Lone Peak early on)have found that
moving the ball is possible, but scoring can be a problem. They are a resilient
and focused group. We know that Mountain Crest has an awesome defense as well so
we respect the possibility that they could be the one team to stop our offense.
Can't wait to see how this plays out on Friday. GO (Angry) TBIRDS!!!!
YO!!! Aunt Lucy- Nobody is asking you to feel bad for East! Why are you still
bitter?..They are a great group of kids that worked hard all year and deserved
to be in the playoffs.
Don't feel one bit bad for East. Their season should have ended two weeks
ago. Great job Timpview!
