Love how DesNews loves Bingham so much. Would love to see them take on East. Thats the only question left in who is the best in Utah. Jordan and Alta couldn't even give East a game. Stop calling them #1 in the state unless you put on an *ASTERIX for that.

Provo, UT

Bingham doesn't seem to play top 4A teams. It seems they are worried they might lose. That is one thing I respect about Alta. They are willing to take the loss. By the way, I see a 3 way tie for first. Too bad East and Logan didn't schedule a non-region game instead of East and MC. I guess nobody could have known. I do wish they had at least a 4A / 5A playoff game.

I completely agree.

East and Logan will decide who is #1 in Utah during the 4A playoffs.

South Jordan, UT

Ha ha ha oh my gotta love the 4a lovers

East was this good last year then playoff time timpview spanked y'all
Bingham is worried bout Jordan no one else.... There ranked #27 in America by max preps... That being said....
East is big powerful and very good.. Win state first then talk... No ones going to disagree a Bingham east matchup would draw a big crowd....and be a great game"................. Buttttttttt
It won't so please stop its a ranking can winning 4A state football state not be good enough...?
Bingham is 6-0 just like east.... Don't talk schedules.. Win your own games...
Miners will beat the diggers 48-20
Clay moss is not playing....! Bing hams lost 13 games since 2005... 3 out of state.. 3 5a titles.. Give credit to a undefeated team... Al the kids are doing is winning..
East 0 titles since 1996
East is very good this year dint forget you have 7 games left! Good luck


A lot of people forget the conditions of the East vs. Timpview game last year. Torrential snow is ridiculously hard to run the triple option in, and usually in those situations the team that can pass the best is going to win. And that's what happened. East will roll through 4A. They have the best team in the state, no doubt. Too bad they don't play Bingham.

mab93: You might want to learn the history before you make comments about Bingham not playing 4A teams. They tried scheduling Timpview multiple times over the past few years. Timpview always wanted that game to take place of the Bingham vs Alta game. No way was Bingham going to replace that game. East is a tough team. But until they win a state title this decade, you may want to hold off on crowning them "Best in State" in any division!

@adwight actually it seems to be much harder to throw the ball downfield than it is to run a triple option in those weather conditions.

I said it before in another thread, but Bingham has not played an in-state team from a lower classification in a quarter century. Don't know why they don't, but they don't. As I see it, they have nothing to gain from doing so and a lot to lose.

I'd love to see Bingham-East this year or Bingham-Timpview in 2009. But it ain't gonna happen. Don't know who is better and I guess we never will.


East and Bingham would be a toss up in my opinion. East could slow down the Bingham run game, and vice versa. I think East has more weapons and could win the game but I'd be willing to pay extra to watch that game.
Alta will still prove a tough opponent for either Hunter or Taylorsville and could end up at Syracuse, again.

Provo, UT

@adwight Also, the first half was when the snow was the worst. In the second half they cleared the field and the snow let up, and that was when Timpview was able to dominate. The year before they seemed to have fumbles without snow against a worse Timpview team.

Salt Lake City, UT

East is the best team in the state this year. dont talk about years past or state championships this decade it is about this year and this year only they are #1 bingham is great but east is on another level. good luck to both, one day a 4a/5a champion of champions game would be great but shedule wise east is superior.

Layton, Utah

Wow that comment was laughable and all you other 4 A lovers. Last time I checked Timpview also had to play in the snow right? So why did it ONLY affect East, can't they handle playing in the snow? Crown them champs when they win multiple Titles in the last 10 years like Bingham has done, Brighton sure thought they were gonna run Bingham off the field so might wanna check your smack talk at the gates before thinking East would just walk all over the Miners

Layton, Utah

East wouldn't beat Valor Christian, or Bingham, so I'll refrain from crowning them the best in the state, did they go out of state this year and beat a 4 time state champion?

West Jordan, UT

"East is the best team in the state this year." - The sportswriters don't agree.
"it is about this year and this year only" - The rankings are based on this year.
" shedule (sic) wise east is superior" - Tell the above-mentioned writers.
You East fans are too concerned with rankings. They're opinions. If East takes a state championship you can argue for their being the best at some level. Until that happens your claims ring hollow.

Binghams victory at and over Valor Christen is far bigger than anything East has accomplished this year, don't kid you self. Bingham is the best team in the state, the media knows it and so do I. They have played a tougher schedule than East, they would beat East.

Go Miners!

Juan Diego will Beat the stallions by 14..its funny how no one gives JD any love.!!JD will win region easy.



cubs4life- Where did you hear Clay Moss was not playing this Friday? I had not heard anything, although he was limping pretty bad at the Alta game.

South Jordan, UT

So who has East beat this year that is really impressive? A 3 loss Jordan team? A 4 loss Alta team? Wow, impressive! Bingham thumped an undefeated Brighton team that beat Alta already. They beat a 4 time Colorado state champion team in Valor. So if you really want to say East is the best based on schedule, at least have something to back that claim up.
