WOW! What a start. I guess I would have to root for Bingham because my dad
graduated from there in 1949 and my grandpa graduated from there in 1922.Both of them were on the school's baseball team.
Definitely rooting for Brighton!! Go Robbie Hutchins!!!!
Scott Schulte checking in from Milford, Connecticut...cheering for family
friend, Kyle Gearig and Bingham.
Schultz may have the worst hands I've seen for the "best tight end in
America." Two games in a row he's dropped easy balls to give the other
Bingham dynasty lives on. From an 07 alum... It's still a great
day to be a Miner.
Congrats to Bingham! A well deserved championship. But Dynasty? Yeah, No!
7 min to go in 4Qtr...down by 2 1/2 scores and Brighton throws in the towel and
punts. You know with that backup QB in that cant throw for Bingham they were
going to run it and run clock.glad the Brighton staff wanted to keep
it "closer" instead of trying to win it and punted.What a
joke.congrats to Bingham.
Great game. Congratulations to Bingham on the title. Congratulations to
Brighton on a fantastic season.Both 5A and 4A produced some amazing
football this season. Can't wait until next year.
I guess this game, and this day can put to rest who the best team in the state
is, and which team has the best O-Line in the state! Bingham with a dominating
O-Line, and defensive performance! I think that statement about best
team was made when the starting quarterback went out, it shows what a team truly
is. It is not one individual star, it is not a bunch of stars placed on one
team, it is a collective synergy of will, desire, and effort by an ENTIRE
team!!Congratulations to the Bingham Miners on a perfect season!!
Bingham definitely deserves to be called the best team in Utah. I would love to
see Timpview and East play the Miners. East might be too one-dimensional on
offense to beat Bingham. IMO Timpview is as good as Bingham right now, but
their loss to PG early in the season means the T-birds are #2 in the state.
I'd love to see a 4A vs 5A game as well. Seems like such a no brainer from
a financial point of view if nothing else. The turn out would be massive and
the profit from ticket sales alone would do both schools some good. They could
also put it up for charity or something since it would fall within the holiday
season. Oh well.I am also okay leaving it as is. I cheer for both
4A and 5A anyway. Ultimately I'm a Skyline fan, but I love watching
Bingham, and Timpview as well. Someday I hope to see Skyline return to glory.
The late 90s team was legendary.
Husker1, Timpview lost before Covey took over at QB. After watching him
dismantle a decent Salem team, I knew he was something special. Not a better
playmaker in the State. It would be great to see a Bingham vs Timpview true
STATE championship game.
fact checkIt was the 2006 team that went 14-0, not the 2010 team.
The 2010 team was only 13-0 because the financial backing for a match-up with an
out-of-state team at Rio Tinto Stadium fell through at the last second.
One word to define the best team in Utah.... UNDEFEATED. Bingham is defiantly #1
2013 State Champs no question there. Good game Brighton, you guys have some of
the most faithful fans. Nobody on the Brighton stands left early and they were
loader than us!!! Brighton will be pretty solid next season. I love and miss
high school football. Thank you Bingham for an unbelievable season. MiNERS RUN
Great performance by Bingham. How big was that when Bingham comes out in the
second half without it's starting QB and runs a nine-minute drive, even if
they only got a field goal. It turned the momentum and put all the pressure
back on Brighton.Huge props to the offensive line. Brighton knew
that Bingham was just going to run the ball at them in the second half and they
couldn't do anything to stop it. Best O-line in the state. Outstanding
defense gave up only 1 TD on a short drive following a turnover. This against a
team that led 5A in scoring ppg, well, before this game anyway.Gritty running by Scott Nichols.Congrats to the team and to Coach
Peck and his staff on an outstanding year!
UtahBruin: I don't know what you call 4 championships in 7 years.
I'd say that's close to dynasty level in my book. I think this game
answered the question of who has the best O line in the state. The 2nd half,
Brighton knew Bingham was going to run the ball, and put 8 guys in the box.
Still couldn't stop the run. That's the line saying put it on our
backs! So good to be a Miner! Great job boys!
I had hoped that with the East loss and the Bingham win, the questions would end
about who is the best team in the state. It's clearly Bingham, period.
Bingham was #1 in the entire state from wire-to-wire. They proved their mettle
one game at a time and NEVER faltered. East couldn’t beat Timpview, which
couldn’t beat PG, which couldn’t get to RES in the 5A. Can we
please let it die!Against the other seven teams to reach the 5A
final 8, Bingham went 7-0, beating #2 Brighton twice, semi-finalists Jordan and
Lone Peak, and then Alta, Riverton and Herriman. They already are the
undefeated TRUE state champion. Bingham also beat Valor Christian
which is 11-1 (only loss to Bingham) on their turf and VC will play tomorrow for
Colorado’s 5A title. I can’t help but wonder if the 4A
fans in Colorado do the same thing as the Utah 4A fans.
Great Game Bingham. Coach Peck deserves an atta boy for the consistent and
successful program he has helped build. The Bingham kids came out and dominated
on both sides of the ball. Brighton hold your heads up. You hung in there with
a top 25 team.
oops, fact check myself nowVC, CO is in semi-final tomorrow, not the
Great win Bingham, coaches and players all did what it takes to go undefeated.
Great season like this is the result of much hard work that start the day after
they lost last year. Coach Peck knows how to build a great program, it starts
with all the off season efforts and camps he does. Brighton should
be happy with their effort this year. You should be back next year in the
AdwightI disagree with you!Shultz is the not the #1 TE
in the Nation, because of his hands it is because he is the best blocking TE and
the most unselfing player I have seen in Utah. He did drop a few balls this
year, yet watch his film and count haw many pancake blocks he got this year; off
the charts. This is why Bingham is so good, so many unselfish roll player, this
is coach Peck style. I agree with the scouts Schultz is the # 1 TE in the
4A and 5A fan here-Timpview would beat Bingham IMO. Better schemes.
Bingham couldn't just overpower them with the run game, and they cant
throw it well enough against a Tbird nasty D. Bingham would keep it close
because of their defense but I would see a 28-21 game. TV averaged what 49 a
game? So 28 about right. Congrats to Bingham. BTW Razor- PG
barely beat Tview but that was because they had a different kid at QB- Since
Covey took over team never was challenged. TV easily beat Alta where you barely
squeeked by. Covey is faster than any kid on Bingham. You expect a 250 lb
lineman to catch him? Ask East who is bigger than Bingham how that went....
Congratulations to Bingham.
@slcftballSalt Lake City, UTBingham just played for the State
Championship game against a team loaded with D1 talent without their QB and
still rolled. So I just don't see how Timpview not having their QB for the
Pleasant Grove game as a legitimate excuse for Timpview being better than
Bingham.I love how people keep trying to use the final scores of the
Alta game as a good comparison. It was a game that had no effect on the already
decided region championship one that Bingham didn't bother preparing for
and still came out and rolled 23-0 in the 2nd half.When you're
a school that actually have an enrollment of 2000+ (4A schools are under 1200)
you're 250 lb boys run fast too.I am so sick of the Inferiority
Complex of these 4A fans fans here on this site.
It would be interesting to see Timpview and Bingham play. I think that Timpview
would have the upper hand in that one. They wouldn't be able to push
Timpview around like they did Brighton. Brighton is undersized on the D line.
@adwight How many balls have you caught in a 5A state championship game?
yeah thought so.Bingham would smoke Timpview by 30 just like
everyone else, would Timpview stop Scottie Nichols? not a snowballs chance, and
I'm a huge Timpview fan as well.
More tunnelvision out there. See only what you want to see and bring up only
that which defends your point of view.Yes, TV beat Alta by 13, and
Bingham won by only 3. Anyone who watched the Bingham-Alta game knows that
Bingham was sleep-walking in the first half, but dominated Alta 23-0 in the
second half. It was clearly the worst half of football that Bingham played this
year and they came out in the second half and proved the 1st half was just a
fluke.Since it doesn't support your POV, you don't bring
up the Lone Peak games. In game #8 on their schedule and on their home turf, TV
(with their star QB) led LP only 15-6 after three quarters although they
eventually won 29-6. On neutral grounds, Bingham slaughtered LP 42-6 through
three quarters and played even with LP in the fourth quarter using back-ups on
offense and defense.Timpview gives up 187 points while playing a
schedule loaded with weak 4A teams, and Bingham yields only 194 points (7-0
against best of the rest 5A), but you say TV has the "NastyD".What gives?
@UtahBruin, Bingham left no doubt who runs the 5A, Scottie Nichols is the
#1 RB in the state!! takes 4-5 guys to tackle him and he's half the size of
Osa. Great game!! 4 rings in 8 yrs isnt a dynasty?? Where's your team at in
that column? I've seen Bingham in Coach Pecks first years of coaching and
there nowhere near the program or dynasty they are now. It's great to be a
Timpview was 2-1 against 5A teams this year. Bingham was 14-0 against 5A
teams.I keep seeing comments about how Covey wasn't playing during
the PG loss, well Bingham had a FIRST YEAR quarterback leading it's
offense. Don't forget that the quarterback went down right before halftime
last night, but yet Bingham still outscored Brighton 17-0 in the second half.
Timpview has a great player (just like Logan), but they lost without him.
Bingham loses their quarterback and they win in the State Championship game,
that shows a great TEAM!Regardless of any of your opinions the fact
remains that Bingham took State and was UNDEFEATED! That alone proves that they
are the best team in the state. If you are going to offer your
"opinion" back it up with some facts.But just remember Timpview
fans, you lost to PG!
When Timpview goes undefeated, then they can claim to possibly be the best team
in the state. Until then, SCOREBOARD! That right belongs to The Miners of
Watched most of the Timpview/East game yesterday and was impressed with
Covey's skills. But sorry he wouldn't last 5 minutes in a game against
Bingham's D. The hit they put on Brighton's QB when he fumbled would
have snapped Covey in half.
You have to catch covey first... There is reason covey doesnt take hits like
that.. No one can catch him. East's giant D line is going to have
nightmares of almost sacking that kid. Its impossible to say who would win the
Bingham/Timpview game. Timpview does have a weak region, but thats why you cant
look at their team season stats. 4 or 5 games this year their varsity didnt
even play the entire second half! Both are great teams and have a chance to
beat each other. Both teams have multiple D1 prospects. Timpviews front seven
is as good as it gets high school. 5 D1 prospects! ( ask East how good they are)
I will say timpview has won 7 State Championships in the last 10 years. Say
what you want. Thats INCREDIBLE.
How did East put up 28 points if the front 7 is so good? Brighton averaged the
highest points in 5A this year at 41 pts per game. Bingham held them to 6. The
other TD came on a pick 6. Again, undefeated and State Champs says all I need
to know as to who the best team in the state is.
Great job Miners.Class of 82
I'm pretty sure Desert Hills could beat Timpview and East. But IMO if
Desert Hills, Timpview and East all combined to make one team, Bingham would
still smash all three by at least 20 TD's.... But that's just me haha.
Everybody likes talking about things that will never happen. All hail the all
Ok i loved the way Timpview played East, a great gameplan and just smart plays
all around! Congrats to Timpview, they are a DYNASTY, if you dont
believe me, 06, 07, 08, 09, 12, 13 um 6 titles in 8 years is not bad so not
saying anything against Timpview, they will not play bingham ever so we all
should stop talking! To all the people who think Timpview could beat
Bingham I just cant see it, I loved Covey, but he wouldnt do that against the
faster Bingham LBs ! Bingham is now #12 on maxpreps!#20 on USA
Today They beat the Defending 5A champs of Colorado last year, and
this year at there place, that team is 13-1 and playing next saturday for the 5A
state championship again! valor christianThat team averages 52.3
points a game, vs Bingham at home, 21! Binghams Defense is the best
and most aggressive in state, there FRront 7 won them the title! They
rushed for over 3,000 yards this year on Offense, 1900 from Nichols and 45
TDSBinghams coaching is the best, and I think they win 2 more in the
next 5 years! Go Miners
If Shultz isn't a top TE because he dropped ONE pass in the 5A state
championship, then Osa Masina is not a top RB being held to 53 yds at Bingham
and no TD's in the 5A championship game.
Razorback, when Timpview played Alta the score was 37 to 14 when Isaiah Naccua
got in an altercation with an Alta player and was warned so the coach pulled him
out for that series and Alta scored, before that Alta couldn't even get a
first down. And in the start of the 4th Timpview pulled the starters on both
offense, and defense. Then Timpviews backups scored, and Alta scored 42 to 28
final Lone peaks only score against Timpview was a kick off returned for a
touchdown. And as you said anyone can have a down game. Bingham's best win
was against Valor Christian, and Timpviews was against East, both quality wins.
But for Jackarus to say Bingham would roll Timpview by 30 is just Ignorance! I
believe either one of Timpview or East would give Bingham a close game like the
Valor game as both of those teams can match Bingham in size, speed, and
athleticism. I also believe all three would have beat Brighton pretty easily.
They are clearly the three best in the state.
