Goaggies, Cuse couldn't handle Gajkowski but just because he beat you guys
doesn't mean he'll do as well against Alta. Alta already handed it to
LP once this year and I expect that while it will be a good game, and
Baron's an awesome talent, LP just isn't deep enough to play with
Alta.In fact the only teams who did beat Alta will likely all be playing
at RES this year. Bingham, Jordan, Brighton, East, and Timpview will all make it
to the turf. Keep on forgetting all about the Hawks folks, that's just
fuel for their fire.Good job LP, and I expect you'll show up next
week and play well, but in the end the Hawks are going to be too good to stop.
Once again the Syracuse fans comment on their defense and how it wins games.
Sorry guys, the type of football played up north is not going to win a
championship. You guys and your "field position football" might be fun
when you play each other, but as soon as you get out of that northern bubble it
is more like shell shock.Region 4 sweeps you out of the playoffs,
Region 3 sweeps Region 2 out of the playoffs. Can you say with me "time to
seed the tourney"? American Fork would have beaten all of you and I am not
sure that Lehi wouldn't have either. Region 1 and Region 2 proved why you
cannot use geography to do regions, there needs to be balance. Or at very worst
you seed the tourney. The good news for football fans? The bad teams are out of
the playoffs after 1 week.
Gentleman, it has been fun being here to give all of you guys crap all year
long. My horse was taken out early this year in the playoffs. Baron is the real
deal and can play. Take him out of the game and they good a good defense but no
scoring. They should take care of Alta next week. Im done on here for the next 6
years I have another one coming up. Goodluck you guys and have fun with the rest
of the season. Its been fun!!
Just shutting down at work and saw the final posted as a Lone Peak win. I think
some folks up in R1 are shocked!Just not enough offense in this one.
And it looks like the difference in this one was a pick six.
I like Gajkowski the QB in a close game.
Im getting out of work early to go the Jordan/Hunter game....and thats gonna be
a blow out
Is this on TV or on the Web? Too early for workers.
Pig Skin:Lets stick to this year's results and the only common
opponent of Region 1 and Region 4's top teams. Was it just a bad game for
the Mustangs or were they stymied by good defense.
The game that is most indicative of the Region 1 vs Region 4 matchup isthe
Highland/Herriman game. 7-3 victory for the Rams over the offensive juggernaut
of the Region 4 champs.Syracuse defeated Highland 17-14Higland plays the kind of defense played by Syracuse and Davis. Great defense negated good offense in this one.
Bruin, region 4 is good at all levels. It should be a good game today.
It's hard to see the season wind down so we get a bit edgy. Your son is a
great example and player at UCLA. Great article they did on your son when he
came into town and popped the Utes in the mouth!!!!!!
Rudy44You said, "Defense won the day in that one.Good defense
negated good offense in that one."Was that true in the 5A
championship last year, Who won a Good Offense or a Good Defense. Or Bad
Preparation and Coaching; Choose an excuse. Defensive end and
goaggies1,Stats down lie, thay will expose weaknesses. The Truth.
I actually want both Cuse and Alta to win today, to see the three
peat. Alta is out for revenge on Cuse. Not sure Cuse will be there?
@DefensiveEnd@goaggies@everyone on hereI am not trying
to chide Cuse' I was sold on them last year. I just am not this year.
And if they do beat LP, I wish them the best of luck the rest of the way. I
don't get to see all of Cuse's games. I see more of Reg.4 games as I
live in Utah County obviously. I have seen more Region 1 games that they
televised, and there were quite a few this year. Very few other regions live.
I am only giving my opinion of what I think. It doesn't mean I am right.
I very well could be wrong. But, from what I have seen, and what I have read,
and by looking at game outcomes. I like Region 4 and Region 3 to sweep, and
then I like Region 3 to sweep next week no matter who they play. This is only
my two cents, it does not conflict with anything I have said previous. And
goaggies, I realize post season stats could be one thing. But Boston, outplayed
everyone in the playoffs, but you are right, players did show up. I agree with
The Highland/Syracuse game may be the best game to look at when comparing Region
1 and Region 4. Highland won that game 7-3 over the Region 4 champs. Defense
won the day in that one. Syracuse beat Highland 17-14. Good defense negated
good offense in that one.
Defensive End, you make a great point i was telling someone yesterday. IF you
look at Mr Fonua and his out put its pretty decieving. He has rushed for 500
plus yards and has 12 touchdown. That is being very efficient when you have the
ball. Thats just running the ball. I didnt look at his recieving yards and
touchdowns. I know people are going to say we use him on short yardage
situations and thats just not the case. You have other runningbacks with 1400
yards and the same 12 rushing touchdowns. Your right about Kole sharing the ball
to all his recievers. Should be fun today. Go "Cuse".
Pig Skin and Utah Bruin. There you go with your meaningless stats again. The
Syracuse first team defense has given up less that half of those points the rest
have come against the second team, by special teams,or defensive touchdowns by
the other team. Pig Skin your stats for total yards at each position are
meaningless. All they show for Lone Peak is that they have a good QB and A
really good receiver. Syracuse stats show they share the ball and they have had
a lot of short fields because of defense and field postion. I am really looking
forward to see how today plays out in all four Region 1 v. Region 4 games.
No Boston as ateam was only hitting 214 last night. Re watch the game. They even
showed how bad Boston was hitting for the ALCS and series. What I was trying to
point out was key guys got key hits when they needed it. I know you watched the
game and saw the stats for yourself. Trust me Im a Sox fan and s I waited for
their bats to unload. Keys hits by key hitters.
@liffObviously the memory us not all that good. I picked Cuse last
year to beat Alta, it was the guy I was chatting with that had the brother to
play at UCLA. I an a UCLA fan, but I picked Cuse to play for the title last
year. Thanks for trying though And GoAggie, I will take Reguon 4 as
I said this year. It was fun watching the jumble in Refion 4 this year. I will
take that rather than playing a bunch of cupcakes. Your right though, yiu play
the teams on your schedule. That is where the statements are made. Fuse
didn't make any this year in my opinion. And Boston had the best post
season BA so I don't know what you are talking about.
UtahBruin,I total agree with you, but don't waist you time and
knowledge. Let Cuse fans keep drinking that Titan cool aid, reality will set in
like last year then they will awake from their dream.
Bruin, that's ok you not sure who to pull for while region 4 teams are
playing. It was kinda a cluster wasn't it. Nobody could find an Identity
down there. Just flip the coin dude. One thing about the Cuse they are
consistent. We just play who is ever scheduled. Sorry we cant play region 4
every week and you could play region 1. That's the breaks man. Goodluck
with the jumbled region down there.
Gentleman, Boston was great during the regular season but when they got in the
playoffs and the AlDS and series tell me what their batting averages where? As a
team they were batting 214 but my point was when they needed big hits guys
stepped up and came through. My point is Cuse has players and they all step up
when needed. I said this years team is also different from last years team. I
did not compare the two teams. Tell me who Lone Peak has beat this year? I
don't think region 4 sweeps. Maybe your UCLA Bruins hen they came to SLC
but region 1 will NOT be swept. Right it down region 4 has nothing one region 1.
Same Utahbruin different year. Promised Alta win last year. My brother is
the best receiver. No way you can win. My brother going to catch passes at UCLA.
Yada, yada, yada. Wrong about everything. Hopefully he is doing good at Hawaii.
He is a great receiver though, no doubt about that. I think the only problem you
have with Syracuse is that Alta can't beat them.
@goaggies1Talk about fishing in the wrong hole.You just
told me earlier that this years team doesn't need last years team, yet your
recent post is defending this years team by last years play. Go figure.As for your claim to Boston, you say "If you look at stats and look
at their batting Boston stunk"Boston Stats:Runs 853
- 1st OverallBatting Avg. .277 - 2nd OverallOBP (On Base percentage)
.349 - 1st OverallSlugging Percentage .446 - 1st OverallERA - 3.79 -
14th Overall WHIP (Walks Hits Innings Pitched) 1.3 - 15th Overall Opponents Batting Avg. -.248 - 10th OverallThere are 30 teams in
major league baseball, and you say they totally stunk, and you reference their
batting, they were the best in the batting statistics."Players
play", of course they do or we wouldn't have a game. Cuse just
hasn't played anyone reputible. Lone Peak has and beat some of them. Cuse
loses, and so does all of Region 1.
Cuse doesn't need last years team. That is all you have this year. Your
touting the Cuse Defensive ranking this year. C'mon...Fremont

region, only wins against the bottom two in your regionViewmont - 1-9, you

opponents who finished 54-42 .777 win percentage to your Titans who's
opponents finished 39-49 .256 win percentage.I don't care about
the Titan so called defense, LP wins this one.
PigSkin, I will finally listen to you. So having a horse in the race Imbeat
seeing too much navy blue then? Parry actually picked Cuse to win by 3. Lone
Peak is the underdog. Now tell me how to coach a bunch of kids last year out
playing a junior college team. Help me with that. Nobody in the state could keep
up with Jordan's recruited team except someone from Cali. Really PigSkin
the coaches were asking what do you do. No man, I bet that's what they were
thinking. Knowing these coaches they tried different things and it didn't
work plain and simple. So if they were that bad how did they beat a great Alta
team that had a lot of talent on their team and a Bingham team with out their
starting QB. Did I hear you say dumb luck. Now your fishing in the wrong hole.
So did Boston just luck into winning the series then? By your logic yes they
did. If you look at stats and look at their batting Boston stunk. But the boys
came to play when they needed too. Tell Boston they have dumb luck. Players
goaggies1Don't blame me if Parry's Power Guide picked Lone
Peak to win, they have a non objective oppinion reviewing all the facts. I can
see it also looking at the stats this year. The game might have a different
result, but I did not see any adjustment when Cuse when down in the Davis game.
Cuse will be down in the playoff, and the "O" and "D" coaches
and players will not know how to adjust and win a tight or come from behind
game. Just like Jordon last year, "What should we do?". That is what
all the Coaches were saying to each other on the sideline.
PigSkin, how can Lone Peak be both underdog and favorite to with in Parry's
Guide. Did you stuff the ballot box? On the thread of Syracuse and Lone Peak
game it has Syracuse favored by three. Is Lone Peak playing Lone Peak? I hope
they beat themselves. Onward and upward my friend.
Syracuse 35 Lone Peak 34
Its called we have a good defense PigSkin. You just cant face facts can ya. You
can pull everything out right now. Cuse wins by 14. Im glad your a region 3
Parry's Power Guide has Lone Peak winning the game. Parry has not been
wrong about Cuse yet this year. Bad news for Cuse.Next year will be
much harder losing the rest of your Dfense Line. Good luck trying to rebuild.
Syracuse by 7
goaggies1Here is just the top QB, Runner, and WR comparison for Loan
Peak vs CuseQB --- Lone Peak 184 yds per game vs Cuse 140 ypgRunner --- Lone Peak 131 yds per game vs Cuse 72 ypgWR --- Lone Peak
65 yds per game vs Cuse 44 ypgIf this is Peaking at the right time,
the Magic will end tomorrow. 2nd best Dfense in 5A against a weak Region 1
schedule, and Weak nonregion schedule; one team not in the playoff and two 4A
Cuse doesn't need the respect from lasts year team my friends. This is a
different team and different year. Last years team was good, this years team is
good as well. This team is starting to peak at the right time just in time for
the playoffs. O by the way, Cuse defense ranked 2nd in 5A. Cant be that bad
boys. We are ready to kick the door down!!! Go "Cuse". Magic
I agree with Pig Skin. If Cuse can keep this low scoring they will have the
advantage. Having seen both schools play. I just think LP is the superior
team. I was on the Cuse band wagon last year when they went into the playoffs.
It was a shame their QB went down. This year, I think Cuse is receiving the
respect they deserve but mainly based on last years team. Don't get me
wrong LP is beatable, but I like LP to win and Region 4 to sweep Region 1 and
Region 3 to decimate Region 2.
Guess what PigSkin, he wont play QB at USU. He is a safety, LB. He has got the
speed but not QB material. Nick Vigil was and awesome runningback in high school
but when he hit USU they made him a LB. He is a great talent at LB. Baron is
good but I would take you to lunch if he plays QB. He is an athlete and they
could use him in a lot of different positions. Go Ag's!!!!!
I hope the Cuse can slow down the Lone Peak QB and Receiver putting up huge
numbers for the last two years. Utah State does not recruit just any old QB, he
must be Special. He is the only D1 QB Offered in Utah for the 2014 class. Is
this on TV or The Web? If this is going to be a shot out Cuse loses. If it is
low scoring Cuse has the advantage.
