    @ JD
    My prediction of South Sevier winning one of its final 4 games is coming true, they achieved one of my three predicted loses on Friday. They will get there 2nd this coming Friday at Grand. By the way, there one win will be Parawon in two weeks, then they will lose to Richfield. Then they will travel to Millard end the Season to prepare for raising the Trophy in Basketball.

    As predicted...Stansbury struggled with Morgan...eeked out a win in OT. D-Hills lost a narrow game to Dixie. Thunder will pound on the ponies next week!

    Skyline was beaten by both 3A top dogs Hurricane and Juan Diego.

    Herriman still seems to have an Achilles heel

    I just don't see how "hoisting" the gold trophy is out the question. This is a proud and talent laden senior class. That counts for a lot.

    not only did So. sevier give up 57 points. beaver had there varsity out when the fourth quarter started. it could of been worse, thats whats scary. plus it was the rams homecoming. pretty sad performance

    The bliss of playoff runs have begun,
    but no ones song has yet been sung.
    In one thing said there is no shame.
    Only one will win the final game.

    Yes, beating a good team twice in a season is tough to do. For SJ to beat South Sevier twice would not be too difficult. I don't think I would call a defense stout that gives up 57 points in one game. 57 points is the total for the entire season for a stout defense. 2A is shaping up to be a good race this year with 5 teams capable of hoisting the gold trophy (South Sevier is not one of the 5).

    1manwolf- dude, something is messed up with your logic. Rarely, if ever, do you see a team that beats 2 members of a "top ten" (yours) get dissed by the list maker as not playing anyone good. So are you saying that Juab and Morgan are "no ones"? Because you must live with one or the other, you can't have it both ways. As for saying PV would beat Wasatch by 28, well, since we won't play this year, I'll say that Wasatch would beat PV by 35! There, I called your bluff, do you want to re-raise? How bout we quit worrying about who certain teams have and haven't played and worry more about the next game on the schedule, this isn't college, the polls just don't matter here.

    I can't wait for Cedar to win dixie and those other teams in St. George. I think I'll leave my sheep for a night and watch the games up here in Cedar. I'll be tail gating in my chevy dually if any of ya want to join me. I got mutton.

    Oh NO, not JD Brooks again....

    South Sevier's wins have come agaisn't teams that are a combined 11 and 4. The ll are loses! South Seveir will win one of there final 4 region games and end with a region record of 2 and 5. That will place them 6th in region. They will play at Emery or South Summit on the 19th of October, get blown out by 35+ and there season will be done. They then can prepare to hoist a Trophy on the 23rd of Feburary in Basketball.

    you mistake me for a wasatch fan or alumni, i am neither. you claim wasatch has played no one, yet they have beaten 2 teams in your very own top 10!! how does that work?? also, you have pine view ranked who's 2 wins are against opponents with a combined record of 3-6. if anything, pine views played no one!! plus, pine view is looking at at LEAST 2 more region losses. thats best case scenario for them, so i wouldn't be too excited for the playoffs. i understand being a homer for your team, but sometimes you got to be realistic about it!!! and reality is that pine view just isn't very good. their best years were spent in 4A

  • joseywales Park City, UT
    Sept. 18, 2012 4:27 p.m.

    Wolfpack- your last post was very confusing. You say PV beats Wasatch by 28 with or without their QB. Who's QB? PV or Wasatch? And who are you talking about when you say "like Stansbury, you play no one"? Wasatch or whatever team 801 likes? If you meant Wasatch plays no one, sure, Ben Lomand is weak, but Grantsville and North Sanpete are normally decent teams. And Wasatch BEAT two of your top 10 teams(Morgan and Juab), so either your math is fuzzy or you just don't like Wasatch.That's like saying, BYU WAS ranked 25th, lost to the U, but I like them better, so I'm leaving them ranked. Just like college, you can't always tell how good your schedule will be a year in advance, and some of these games are just old handshake deals anyway. Maybe you could come up with a formula to have everyone have a "balanced" schedule. But as it's already been mentioned, these rankings mean little, it's the wins in November that count, so maybe the emphasis on "who" each team plays shouldn't really matter that much. Just sayin'...

    To Bear: Ask any coach and he or she will tell you that it is extremely difficulty to beat a team twice in one season. With that in mind, why wouldn't the rams have a good shot to play with and beat the broncos the next time around. There is not much that separates that top 5 in 2A with #6-#10 in the state.When you have a stout defense led by Patani and Bater, the team will always have a chance.

  • OneManWolfPack St George, UT
    Sept. 18, 2012 3:40 p.m.

    Pine View beats Wasatch by 28 points with or without their QB! Just like Stansbury you play no one. Can't wait until 1st round of playoffs!

  • Sampson Orem, UT

    @interested observer

    I stand corrected on Delta. My point was that there are several teams who could boast 5-0 If they had the schedule Stansbury has. There is no reason for Stansbury to avoid teams like Taylorsville, Cyprus, Mt. View, Provo, Westlake, etc.

  • JD Books Sulphurdale, UT

    To Boys of Fall: I think South Sevier and Richfield have the best shot at 2nd. Parowan is more like a JV team.

    Its been sometime since I graced these walls,
    to write of hits, scores and falls.
    Your writings are all so sublime,
    But none compete with REGION 9!
    So I agree with all who echo this,
    our playoff runs will be pure bliss!

  • EightOhOne St. George, UT
    Sept. 18, 2012 9:45 a.m.

    Pine View is NOT a top 10 3A team!!! take pv out, move everyone below them up one, then add wasatch and theres your list.

  • Wasp utah County, UT

    JD, you might not be the most realistic fan, but what you lack in reality you make up for in enthusiasm. Love to see you on here cheering your team on. After the shutout of Enterprise I thought the Rams were onto something this year. But then the "hiccup". I could see the Rams winning out the rest of the season since the South region is pretty much up for grabs after SJ. None of the teams have really shown they are that much better than the others. All the teams getting whooped by SJ and then battling for 2nd will make an interresting 2nd half of the season in the South (for all the teams but SJ that is. They just have to bide their time until the playoffs). Only 2 I see not competeing for 2nd are Parowan & Enterprise with S.Sevier having an outside shot & Kanab a long shot.

    I agree with Boys of Falls assesment of the 2A, the best teams by far are in the north, and San Juan is up there. Just because Manti has a loss which is too the number 2 team in 3A shouldn't put them at number 2 until they get beat by someone in the 2A there still the top team. There not far behind last years team and there kicker is better this year. Just missed a 52 yarder wide left last week. The north region is tough, Emery is a very good team, and it looks like S. Summit & Millard are good again, so it'll be interesting. And JD Brooks getting beat by an avg. Beaver team by 57 at home is not a hiccup, it's a wake up call. They may be just good enough to spoil it for someone but not for a deep run in the playoffs.

  • JD Books Sulphurdale, UT
    Sept. 17, 2012 3:02 p.m.

    Yes, a 57-0 score is usually considered a hiccup. Coach Z will have them ready for the second part of the season. They should make a deep run into the playoffs1

    Sept. 17, 2012 2:32 p.m.

    JD Books: A hiccup? That cracks me up, the score was 57 - 0. It was not even a last second fluke.

  • Bear Somewhere, UT
    Sept. 17, 2012 2:09 p.m.

    Good luck with that JD. SS will be lucky to split the next 4 games. Grand and Richfield will take you down. 57-0 is not a hiccup its first class beat down. I am curious it looks like San Juan already thumped you on your home field so what makes you think that you will compete with them in the playoffs? Or does compete mean show up on the same field at the same time to you?

    To: Boys of Fall...Look for South Sevier to win the rest of their games and then compete with San Juan in the playoffs! Last week vs Beaver was a hiccup.

  • InterestedObserver Spanish Fork, UT
    Sept. 16, 2012 10:20 p.m.

    Sampson has no cred...

    He mentions Delta would be 5-0 with Stansbury's schedule, Delta was beaten by Stansbury. Come on Sampson...

    Yes, the 2A south is pretty week. Be nice if the Richfield game were on the road to make the game a little more challenging.

  • Sampson Orem, UT
    Sept. 16, 2012 6:41 p.m.

    Let me clarify my take...I am not a Stansbury hater. They ought to be 5-0. But teams like Grantsville, Judge, Wasatch, Juab, Desert Hills, Pine View, and even Delta or Snow Canyon would be 5-0 with that schedule.

    Stansbury may be very good. In two weeks, Desert Hills travels north to play Stansbury. I imagine the outcome will be a rude awakening.

    Cmon Deseret News where is Herriman in the 4A rankings...They are for sure in the top 5 in the state. Doesn't really matter, however the SL Trib has them at #2 in the state.

    True that 5-0 is 5-0 ..until you play a legit 3A Team like Hurricane,Juan Diego or Dixie, just to name a few,then it will be 5-1.

    maybe, but 5-0 is 5-0

  • USC Fan in Utah Spanish Fork, UT
    Sept. 16, 2012 7:33 a.m.

    I agree. Stansbury's opponents are 4-20. The only team they have played with a winning record is Bear River, BR's schedule has been soft as well.

  • mykaljordan draper, ut
    Sept. 16, 2012 7:00 a.m.


    I agree with you 100%. Stansbury will end up like Granger, all the hype about being undefeated,just to get stomped on by a LEGIT 3A Team... enjoy it while its there Stansbury,if you keep doing what youre doing you might meet a Team Called JUAN DIEGO or HURRICANE, LEGIT 3A Teams that have played good teams to be ranked Hurricane #1 and JD #2..

  • Boys of Fall Fillmore, UT

    My 2A Top 5 remain the same (1-Manti, 2-SJ, 3-S.Summit, 4-Emery, 5-Millard), but this week will tell a lot with Manti headed to S.Summit & Millard going to Emery. Would be nice to see someone in the South Region step up & give SJ a little competition. No matter what happens this weekend, 4 of the top 5 teams are in the North and we'll have to wait until SJ gets to face one of them in the playoffs to see how good the Broncos are this year.
    Good Luck to all the teams.

    GO EAGLES!!!!

    Would someone do their homework on Stansbury?! Their wins have all come from doormat teams.
