The only thing that would've made this game better is if MC came out on
top. Incredibly proud of these kids and these ooaches. Not one person can say
MC didn't fight until the bitter end. No one can ay MC gave TV this game.
The didn't by any means give up this game.
My apologies; when I posted at 11 p.m., Gurney had not written his story, so I
carelessly criticized the writers for not including Solorzano's
contribution to the Timpview win. Thanks for keeping me on the straight and
narrow. Thanks for your coverage of all the teams this year. DesNews is #1!
Ah the bitter, jealous anti T-Bird fans still exist out there I see. No tainted
victory here, the kids won it on the field with a tough road to the
championship. Congrats to Coach Whit, Chad, Todd and the rest of the coaching
staff. Best played and most exciting state championship game in recent memory.
And the legacy of Coach Wong lives as well so congrats to him also.
Jake Lloyd, that kid is clutch!!!Congrats Timpview. Way to
represent Region 8!
Re ucnid:First off, seeing as you are from Springville, I would
expect the jealous comment. You should really get over the jealousy.Second, "tainted for you"...I don't think they care. But as I am
not inside thier program, or know how the kids dealt with all the issues that
hit them in the last year, the kids are to be commended. Remember, it was
adults mistakes, not the innocent kids. Third, that was a great
game that both teams need to be rewarded. MC, those kids are tough. But in the
end, it was too much Jake Lloyd, good receiver play, and that Peta boy was a
defensive beast. He literally pancaked the 280 lb offensive tackle, then
superman leaped and sacked the QB. Best defensive power rush i have seen in a
while. And BTW, Best offensive play I have seen was when TV got it on 4th down
in OT when Lloyd was falling down and completed the TD. Sportscenter.Both teams are to be congratulated. That was an excited game to watch on TV-
sorry there had to be a loser.
That was a fun game to watch! hats off to both teams and coaches. The agony of
defeat shown after the game was genuinely humbling. Truest forms of expressions
on display. With that bring said, we should lay off judging these 17 year old
boys who were very close to their former coach. Once again, great job teams!
The comments about it being tainted make it even more exciting for these kids.
They have felt like the whole world was against them this year. Comments like
cheaters, crooked, tainted have only served to motivate this bunch of kids.
Keep bringing the pathetic insults. These kids did their speaking on the field
with yet another state championship. Hats off to MC for playing a great game.
It was exciting to the last play. Two great teams clashing for the state
champs.So Springville and Kearns, get your players working hard this
summer then you can do your talking on the field instead of on message
Great game Mountain Crest you gave it your all. To bad a team has to lose a game
like that. You guys can hold your heads high. Congratulations to everyone on the
team. What a game! Two great teams fighting to the end. I think I will remember
this team better than some other MC teams that have won state. The effort put
into this game was something to behold. Go Mountain Crest, you are the best.
I originally thought that last week's game against East was really the
state championship game, but Mt. Crest brought it last night. They would have
beat East last night. It was very fitting to have these two teams meet in the
finals this time and not the semis as had been the case 06-09. Last night's
game could have easily gone either way. As said already, too bad there had to be
a loser.MC #6 (Moroni Laulu-Pututau) is a stud, I'm glad
he's headed to BYU. We can use some of that athleticism. I wish BYU would
pursue Dax Raymond and some of the other tbirds a bit more.
amanap, Both MC and Timpview payed the consequences for their ineligible player
mistakes. Neither one was trying to break the rules. Stop hating on these two
great teams just because you are jealous that your team didn't make it to
the final game.
Congrats to the tbirds on another *championship!!!
@amanap That's one more football championship that pineview
They'll get there. They're just starting the art of attraction, give
Congrats to the T-Birds on another Championship*!!!* They won in
spite of losing their head coach and having distractions throughout the year
from minor UHSAA mistakes similar to other teams. They accepted the harshest
penalties to date for those mistakes after self reporting. In a year that many
considered 4A more competitive than usual their path to #1 included no home
games and what could be argued as the #2, #3, and #4 teams in 4A, including last
years champion. They did that with a team where all the starters played for them
last year, none were getting D1 looks, and only one had a D1 offer before the
playoffs. When an underrated team with a very solid defense had them down by by
9 points in the first quarter they kept fighting to get a double overtime
Great job with all the championships* 2006*, 2007*, 2008*, 2009*, and now
another championship in 2012*! Strange how good you can be with the art of
attraction on your side...
People can whine and cry about the fact that Timpview won, but they had every
right to be there and their win is 100% legitimate. The 4A playoffs turned out
to be between the two best teams, both of which got there through working harder
the whole season than most, if not all, the other 4A teams. Neither was
considered the top 4A team before the season started. None of their
championships are tainted no matter how much losers wish they were.Timpview High School Football. Legitimate State Champions 1986, 1991, 1997,
2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2012. No asterisk needed.Childish
people complain and claim cheating when they get beat. Real men and women work
hard to improve themselves so they can win next time. At the end of last season
Timpview worked hard to earn the win this year.
All are tainted that had players outside their boundaries that were encouraged
to come play for whatever reason. If all those teams didn't have any of
those players during their seasons then you are correct.... but I don't
think that's the case.
The Timpviews of the state always call us whiners and to just get better but the
difference is most teams and coaches just don't do the things that those
Timpview doesn't encourage students to go to their school to play football
and it isn't their job to discourage football players from going to
Timpview. Your claim is baseless and you don't have a shred of evidence
that anyone that has ever played for Timpview was encouraged by the coach to
switch to Timpview. With open enrollment most schools in Utah have football
players that live outside their boundaries. Timpview follows the same rules as
everyone else and they are just under the microscope more than most other
programs. If you had evidence that any player that played at Timpview this year
was recruited by the coaching staff or that they intentionally broke any UHSAA
rules then I wouldn't call you a whiner and you could call the championship
tainted. Since you don't have any evidence you must just be whining. If
Pine View ever wins a state championship, do you think it would be right for
someone make baseless claims of a tainted championship?
It is sad that you can't get over a game that happened five years ago.
can I have a Diet Coke with that jealousy pill amanap? hahahahha
AMANAP, Sorry, but you really have no idea about the Timp program. But
I have to say you are correct, that they do things differently there. First,
they take average players and make them good, they take good players and make
them great. It's called coaching. There really is no big secret. It's
a system that starts in the 9th grade and is built on for 4 years of an athletes
career. If you wanted to come and see it in action, I'm sure the coaching
staff would help you out. Come on up north and see for yourself, then spout off.
I'm not from Pine View mab, just a high school football purist. And your
post was dishonest or ignorant. If Pine View did win ever then yes it would be
tainted and with an * just like Timpview's all are because they do the same
thing that Timpview does.
@curious georgeAre you talking about doing things differently like
stealing money? Teaching classless unsportmanlike behavior? Cause that's
all I saw from the Wong-coached teams. This years team at least seemed to be
under control which is good...@pac 12You drink Diet
Coke? That's disgusting and you just lost all credibility.
AMANAP, Football purist? I'd like to see your definition of that
term. Could be quit humorous, lay it on me. Reality and rational thinking are
generally lost on the ignorant. Think about that for a moment, please. Why not
instead of degrading and attempting to humiliate others simply try rooting for
your team, I'm sure they need a few strokes. Good point PAC 12 but I think
AMANAP does not need the caffeine. Most likely a valium would do the trick.
I agree with amanap. All of the semifinal teams would have a * had they won,
just like pine view if they won in 2007.
I wasn't able to see an * anywhere on it.
