Great season to both these teams! Jordan is so fun to watch play. And with all
the underclassmen, I could possibly seeing them breaking into the top 25 in the
nation for next year. Congrats to coach Kjar on a great season! Also regardless
of the beatdown today, congrats to Syracuse on a great season up until today and
beating Alta and Bingham. I love high school football!
Looks like everyone attending this game would have been more entertained had
they attended the 2A championship game between San Juan and Manti.
Embarrassing -one team didn't even show up.
Watching these teams warm up....Syracuse seemed like the weren't excited to
play.... Jordan obviously was!
Sometimes outcomes can't be easily explained. A fast start by Jordan and a
couple key errors by Syracuse quickly snowballed into an avalanche. I'm a
Syracuse fan. That said, if a healthy Syracuse team played Jordan 10 times, I
think Jordan would probably win 9, maybe all 10. They are a great team.
However, I doubt any of the other 9 games would have a result anything close to
today's. It's too bad that Syracuse's worst game and
Jordan's best happened on the biggest stage. The final score looks bad,
but there are 22 5A teams that did not make it to the final game. Syracuse did.
Props to the Titans and their outstanding coaches for reaching the final, and
congratulations to Eric Kjar and the Beetdiggers for winning (deserving) the
gold. They are easily the best team in Utah.
Jordan won't be as successful next year... they won't have the
offensive line they had this year, they're all gone. Granted, Kafentzis
and co. are all great players, but they don't get there without that Oline
just manhandling everyone they played. They could have run two plays the whole
game, and no one could have stopped it. That's essentially what
they've done the whole playoffs. They almost made it unfair. We'll
see how good they are next year when all those guys are gone. They had a luxury
this year of being behind one of the best lines in the country. Hats off to
them, should be entertaining to see next year.
Those were kind words RVB- Syracuse has nothing to be ashamed about. They beat
legit teams this year and just ran into a team that was steamrolling everyone.
There's not much a team can do against an offensive line like Jordans- you
know whats coming, but you can't stop it. Sad to see the season come to an
Today's outcome wasn't difficult to explain. It just helped put some
perspective back to the last couple of weeks. Nonetheless congrats to both
teams but especially to Jordan on a really fine season capped with a title.
They will just go out and find some more 18 year old sophmores and keep doing
what they do. Hats off to them they were truly an outstanding team especially
the o line.
That defense was really... something?
I was hoping for a good fight from the Titans. I was happy for them to be in
the final. Hopefully the next time this two teams meet up in the same
predicament that the Titans will bring shovels with longer blades to expose the
jordan has an awesome team. Im still trying to figure out how to stop their
offense. I told someone today it looked like the was a JR college team playing
in the championship game. Syracuse had a geat season and did what they wanted to
accomplish and more. Im sorry you Jordan fans wanted a tougher opponent, sorry
there wasnt we already beat them. Your number 2 team in the region got beat by
Syracuse. Maybe you could finish the game with East or Timpview over the
thanksgiving holiday and decide who's the best team in the state. Jordan is
the king for a year and you have an awesome team and a bigger target on your
back. Syracuse now returns a seasoned team to make a run next year with more
experienced players. I knoww people thought they didnt have a tough schedule the
whole year but I think they answered most of the critics. Dont feel sorry
because you beat them. Prepare you team like ya did this year, there will be
plenty of teams knocking on your door. We will be one of them. Congrats on a
awesome year best team in the state.
Jordan has some great players that get the headlines, but I thought
Jordan's O-Line and d-line were amazing. That is where the game was
Well, like i predicted jordan would win. I just thought that it would be closer,
I know jordan is really good, and they would of still won no matter what but
that was not the Syracuse team i remember watching. They are better then that.
Maybe they just got to overwhelmed with it. I don't know. Good job Jordan
for taking advantage of all the mistakes and stuff. You guys are really good, i
just thought that Syracuse would of at least shown up.
Jordan's domination of the 5A shows that they are the best team in the
state and will be nationally ranked. No 4A team could play with them! So
please, don't do the "comparison" thing!
Syracuse Defense gets to state, and gives up 24, 16, and 56 to all the salt Lake
schools! Keep playing that Tough region 1 and not prepare your selfs
for actuall teams until the playoffs! Fremont was also undefeated
and lost by 30 to Lone Peak last year.Congrats on the 12-1 season
with a 54 point drubbing syracuse! Way to not have any emotion, but
against Bingham you clearly played! ha Bingham ain t the all mighty! I said it all year Jordan is stacked and there line just pushed that
same defensive line who destroyed my miners last week! Knew this
would be a blow out! It could of been 100! So much for the defense!

Good to see Timpview and Jordan win state titles, isn't it? Two teams that
build their programs with the highest level of character and integrity. Two
teams that follow the UHSAA rules to a "T". Great to see the good guys
in Utah finish first. What a great world we live in, isn't it?
Nice to see Binghamalum surface again. I thought after Syracuse took down the
mighty miners we wouldnt hear from you. How do you guys look for next year?
Maybe we can play again. That would be awesome. All we do is reload and play
weak teams until we hit you again next year. Lets start the lifting weights for
next year. Merry Christmas dude. Hope Santa brings you some good news for next
Ha! binghamalum is back. What happened man? Why were you gone all this time. It
couldn't have had anything to do with Bingham loosing could it? Way to not
accept defeat. Syracuse won and you still say they suck. Well guess what? That
team that lost by 56 in the finals beat Bingham and Alta. So you shouldn't
be say Syracuse still sucks. Because its kind of obvious that the syracuse that
bingham and Alta played is not the same syracuse as the one Jordan played. And
by the way Fremont was not undefeated last year. They lost to Jordan and east.
With that said, nice to see you have come back.
Who is the guilty party that began that ridiculous rumor that Austin Kafentzis
is an 18 year old sophomore?!? People, he is 16... I have seen his date of
birth. Please stop using that poor excuse to justify your team's defeats.
He beat my Hawks, too, and I had to sit and listen to people in the stands
spouting that rumor to excuse the Hawks' loss, too. He really is just that
freakin' talented! It's impressive, and he will break every QB record
in this state by the end of his junior year. He deserves respect and credit for
how hard he has worked.
re: the Truth801No 4A team could play with Jordan? ummm... excuse
me but East beat you. And Timpview would beat you too.Both J and TV
will are ranked in the Top 40 Nationally for the Maxpreps rankings. Good for
Utah football. But I wouldnt be si sure Tview gives you the business.Congrats to Dixie, Timpview and Jordan. It was a crazy year. Best teams
obviously won the title.
Way to go Jordan. Very impressive. Wish it was a better game, but that's
sports! Kind of funny to hear someone say "I told you so" Guess if you
make a bunch of predictions eventually one of them has to be true. .
Um excuse me but East did not beat Jordan in fact that is one of the games that
East forfeited. Also we tried to get East to reschedule and finish the game and
Matich wanted no part of it. If the fire doesn't break out Jordan wins that
game, there was an entire quarter left to play and Jordan was running the ball
straight down the throats of an exhausted front 7 at East. Jordan tried 3 times
to finish the game and each time it was no. Don't kid
yourselves 4A cannot compete with the physicality of the Jordan front line and
neither could Timpview. Jordan is the clear number 1 program, best offense and
defense in the state. No one in state has, or could beat the Diggers, you are
kidding yourself if you think otherwise. GDP reigns supreme.
