Just like I predicted, came down to turnovers. If the diggers can minimize those in the playoffs, they'll be a very scary team!

Overall a tough game where Jordan ends up on the losing end. wasn't there, but Austin is still throwing interceptions left and right. Now maybe the reason being is because he has no one else to throw to besides Krueger but he has to cut down on them if Jordan even has a chance to make to RES. I believe they are semi-final worthy with the talent they have and can beat (almost) anyone in 5A besides Bingham. Jordan very likely now travels down to Hunter for the first round then down to Davis. Tough road but I think they can do it. GO DIGGERS!

Honestly the only reason Bingham beat us so convincingly is because we were missing 2 starting receivers including Krueger. With a healthy offense and a great game by Austin. The Diggers can absolutely beat down the Miners and any team in 5A for that matter!

HAHA That's the only reason huh? I don't care if he's throwing to Jerry Rice! That defense couldn't stop Nichols or the Miners offense to save their life, or their season! The proved it again by giving up almost 200 yards to the Brighton RB. That defense is BAD! If they played Bingham 10 times, they'd lose 10 times!

Your right, the defense is terrible, but the offense is absolutely phenomenal. IDK if you were at that game but the miners really only put together a few long drives and the rest points came off the turnovers that put Jordan in a come back situation that we struggle with so much. Honestly if we get the turnovers in check I think its a much better team than you think.

Tough road to the semis? That is a paved smooth road for them. They get horrible Region 2 as their first round game and then the always over-rated Region 1 that plays 3 yards and a cloud of dust football. Jordan will beat Hunter by 5 touchdowns and will do the same to Davis. 5A is weak this year, there are only 2-3 good teams and the rest are mediocre at best. Bingham is the clear favorite, and I would put Brighton down as my #2 best team.

Region 4 has been tough in terms of who will make it and who won't, but Herriman is your region champion? Region 4 will not be a factor in the tourney this year. Herriman wouldn't make state in Region 3. They already lost to Bingham and Jordan, and they would not beat either Alta or Brighton.

Bingham walks away this year in a very weak 5A tourney.

Brings up an interesting realization. If Jordan can beat Davis, which i think they can but will be a tough game and alta can beat Syracuse, again tough but possible. Then we're left with an all region 3 5A. ......may need to restructure again lol

Prep Fan your comments are spot on. Region 1 is all about "defense" and no offense. Jordan last year exposed Syracuse's so called "great D" I agree that Jordan should steam roll over Hunter but I am a little worried about Davis. Before last night game they were giving up 5 PPG. I know that stat might be overrated since they've played no one really so far besides Syracuse but still worrisome to me. As long as Jordan's offense is rolling then they should win.keep in mind Davis plays Pleasant Grove in the first round if it started today and what does P.G do best? they score in bunches, something Davis struggles with. Watch out for that upset. Looking at the bracket Jordan might have an easier rode then Brighton to be honest haha.

Digger24: They really don't have a better team than I think. Those turnovers weren't just handed to Bingham and Brighton. Their defenses went out and took the ball away from them. Their offense has been phenomenal against weaker teams. But not when they play teams with good defenses. As for Bingham not driving the ball on them. The Nichols kid had well over 200 yards rushing. He didn't get them on 2 90 yard runs. They dominated in all 3 aspects of the game. Sorry, I've seen Jordan play 3 times this year. And each time it's been the same story. No defense, and try to outscore their opponent. Against the Copper Hills, and West Jordan's that's fine. But not when you have to play a team with an actual defense.

Davis hasn't played a single team that would make state in Region 3 and highly doubtful that the teams they have played would make state in Region 4.

Here is my case - Davis played Taylorsville, Copper Hills, and Hunter in pre-season. NONE of those teams make state in any other region, including Region 1. Taylorsville and Hunter will both make state because Region 2 is a complete joke! But neither team will make it out of round 1.

The other problem with Davis is that they play "field position football". They would be happy winning a game 21-14 every week controlling field position, but that is not going to beat Jordan. The key recipe to beating Jordan is indeed a good defense, but that means having a team that can contain and put pressure on the Jordan QB and also prevent big plays. Davis plays a whole season of football controlling games, but when you are down 14-0 in the 1st quarter that game plan is pretty much over. 2010 Jordan 52-7 over Davis, 2011 Jordan leads 21-3 end of 1st quarter. Davis has no chance of beating Jordan. None.

Absolutely right

Honestly, good teams don't go 4-5. They just don't. The fans keep acting like Jordan is a real competitor this year, but that just isn't reality. This team isn't up to to the challenge this year. If they face Bingham again (and they have to if they want to win state) they will get run over again. They didn't lose to Bingham and East due to some minor mishaps. They played FAR superior teams and it showed all night long. At no point in time did East or Bingham have anything to fear from Jordan. I know East isn't 5A, but it is a example of what a real beastly team looks like.

Jordan should be looking to next year at this point. Work on fixing some of the very real problems with their team. Maybe next year they can actually live up to some of that hype we have been force fed all season long. :P

Sound like Jordan fans are back!

Lose two weeks in a row, and talk about others, not the fact that there so called AMAZING offense just scored 21 and 27 is all. I thought big bad offenses were suppose to score 50s?

Binghams the clear deep favorite of 5A, there stud RB has just run raggid on the 2 other best teams in the 5A and no one else they play will be any better!

Davis beat Layton by 7 points last week, laytons 3-5 with 3-2 in region play!

Region 4 has some solid solid teams! I kinda hinge saying this because...
Herriman yes is 4-1 in that region leading it... is 5-4 overall! ha
They are the best and biggest in that region and barely beat wing t riverton by 3! Riverton had chances to win that region, Binghams never lost to them! ha

Yes Bingham will be in the finals! its theres to lose! no one else not even the bengals can win a 4 quarter game with the deep miners! Brightons two way boys wont last all year!

Saying that Im suprised they beat down the Diggers,

binghamalum and T-bird: In no way shape or form am I saying that Jordan is a legit threat to the championship or "are back. I am just saying that they are at least semi-final worthy. Trust me. I give Bingham all the credit in the world, I really do. Before the season they were my pick to win it all and even last week and all of this year before Jordan played Bingham I said the Miners were going to smash the Diggers. Well the 14-7 lead was nice but it was far from what Bingham was. The Nicholas kid is dang good! I was so impressed with his break away speed and the way he drug defenders like they were nothing to get extra yards and pull away. That was really impressive. I do still believe Jordan can get to RES. Like prep fan said, this is a down year in 5A. Who is better than Jordan besides Bingham? Davis has played no one and they have such padded stats its ridiculous. Brighton is about the same as Jordan in my opinion too. Jordan may not have the same team as last year

but they can at least compete for a spot in the final 4

Binghamalum, I agree with you saying Bingham seems to be the clear favorite in 5A this year. But, while it's been a while, Bingham has lost to Riverton. Riverton won 20-12 in 2002 and 24-21 in 2003.

JDigger24
Sandy, UT

Bingham is incredible and is definitely the clear favorite but I know they are beatable. They arent this super team you all think they are. Bingham Brighton Jordan and Davis all could win state in my opinion. It all depends on who can get hot and pull an upset that happens all too often in Football.

Gunner
South Jordan, UT

They may be beatable. But not by Jordan, Brighton or Davis. How is Brighton and Jordan "about the same", when Brighton just put a beat down on Jordan? And BT1984, you are correct. I remember that win Riverton had over Bingham. They acted like they had just won the state title. haha

JDigger24

Bingham is a better team than Brighton and Jordan. They have proved that. I just think that they are not on a whole nother level like Jordan was last year and how bingham was in 2010. With a complete game by one of those three teams and a few slip ups by Bingham, they could go down. My entire point is that Bingham Brighton Jordan and Davis fans all have a reason to be excited for the playoffs, its football, anything can happen!

I hope you guys over look region 1. Come on all we do is farm land and let Salt Lake teams take our lunch money. Bingham, Brighton and Davis are good teams. But when you get to RES magic happens. "Cuse" will be one of those teams.
