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.

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 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.

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 happen's.

Here is just the top QB, Runner, and WR comparison for Loan Peak vs Cuse

QB --- Lone Peak 184 yds per game vs Cuse 140 ypg
Runner --- Lone Peak 131 yds per game vs Cuse 72 ypg
WR --- Lone Peak 65 yds per game vs Cuse 44 ypg

If 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 #3's teams.

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.

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.

Don'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, 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 play.

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 1-9 - Averaged 14 points a game, you gave up 14
Weber 5-5 - 2-4 In your region, only wins against the bottom two in your region
Viewmont - 1-9, you shut them out, and they scored 7 points all year in region play
Layton - 4-6, Best win all year
N.Ridge - 4-5, gave up 27 to a team that avgs 27
Davis - 9-0, best team in your region supposedly, gave up 21
Highland - #3 4A team, gave up 14 to a team that avg 21
B. Elder - #3 4A team, First game of the season, Final 16-7, wow impressive
Mt. Crest - 4A team, 2-8, averaged 17 this year, you gave up 14

Lone Peak averages 26 against 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.

@goaggies1

Talk 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 Overall
Batting Avg. .277 - 2nd Overall
OBP (On Base percentage) .349 - 1st Overall
Slugging Percentage .446 - 1st Overall
ERA - 3.79 - 14th Overall
WHIP (Walks Hits Innings Pitched) 1.3 - 15th Overall
Opponents Batting Avg. -.248 - 10th Overall

There 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

@liff

Obviously 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.

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.
