    Ain't it funny how the big 5A fans squak about their teams ruling the world. I'll give you the depth in football. It's tough to beat a team that has 300 kids tryout and when a starter goes down the second teamer doesn't miss a beat. 5A v 3A football is a mismatch. Having said that, as a betting man I'd wager the top three 3A baseball teams would dominate the 5A tourney. But then again, I could be wrong. (But you know I'm not)

    @plyxply @HSFAN maybe Bingham's JV should have played this tourney sounds like they would have done better!

    Plyxply- Any sport? OK, I'll bet anything you want that Binghams jv team would get worked by Delta, Uintah, Payson, Wasatch, Hurricane, and maybe 5 other varsity 3A wrestling teams. Actually, I'm going to go out on a limb and reverse it, and say that the first 4 I mentioned would beat the Bingham varsity with their JV squads. I'm also very confident that the Bear River and Spanish Fork varsity softball squads could handle the JV as well. I hate soccer, but maybe Dixie, Wasatch and JD could come through. But why does it matter?

    Hey Factcheck and Bench, you guys were asking if I had seen Bingham play in the comments on the other article. I also said that Bingham would take 4th in a statewide playoff with all divisions and a bunch of guys tore me to pieces over it. Well, guess what? the mighty Bingham has fallen! Not only are they not going to take 4th in all divisions, they aren't taking 4th in 5A. I'll take your letters of apology now. Thank you! I love it when people count their titles before playing the game.

    plyxply- Full disclosure, I am not a Bingham fan at all and if they lose, I could not care less. I have just followed these comment boards for several years and find it funny how clowns like the guy in Manti a few years back claiming the mighty templars could smoke Timpview, Alta and Bingham in football, or the Hurricane and JD fans claiming they were better than LP this last year. Laughable.

    ATT Washington County insecure fans, Honestly I thought Snow Canyon got ripped when they took away the 4 wins. I pulled for you last year in the championship v. SF. I pulled for SC hard this year and even told a few friends how much I hoped that somehow they could get into the playoffs and win the tourney. Frankly, I think JD got the short end having to play first round v the best team. They had to go all the way through the losers bracket and almost pulled it off. Who knows, maybe they could have saved some pitching by being in the winners bracket longer and could have had enough to beat SC. Still glad for those kids and thought it was awesome.

    I have to admit HSFAN that was a good point. Anytime someone from a 3A school wants to chime in about Bingham losing it's kind of funny since the Bingham JV in any sport would beat the varsity of any 3A team.

    I saw it, I was just mocking binghamalum who has been on here for the last few months declaring Bingham to be the indisputed best team in the state and proclaimed that the only way Bingham could ever lose would be if they "beat themselves". I know Alta has been playing extremely well lately. I still think American Fork is the team to beat, they have the best pitching.

    Hey Southpride 56, this is big boy baseball. In 5A there are several good teams as evident by last place Lehi beating Snow Canyon....ha ha

    @Duckhunter... Bingham didnt beat themselves they were just overpowered by a better team being Alta. They out pitched, out hit, and out coached bingham. Bingham looked passed Alta and they paid the price for it. Bingham is a great team and they are by no means out of the tournament. They'll bounce back quickly.

    Alta hit the ball hard all night and just when it felt like Bingham was going to get back into it Alta turned a double play and then their sophomore catcher threw a runner out trying to steal second with an amazing throw. Bingham isn't out of it by any means, but Alta sure has been hitting the ball hard and was definitely the better team last night. Tilby looked good on the mound and Kallas owned the Miner pitching.

    So did Bingham "beat themselves" or did they just get worked by a better team?
