miners: Your homer ism is much appreciated. 07 and 08 are before they even
moved to a spread offense. Lone Peak beat them in 2011 and 2012 where Bingham
had no answer for the short passing attack. Alta also beat them in 2012 with the
passing game. And almost beat them last year. Last year Bingham beat Lone Peak
handily, I'm not 'making excuses for them. My point was that teams
that can throw the ball well are the ones that have a shot to beat them. You
will not beat them running the ball.
LP and Jordan giving Bingham a challenge??.... somebody has been smoking too
many left handed cigarettes.Bingham has team speed all over the
place... if they stay in the zone mentally I doubt they lose another game.
Jordan gave them fits last year? LP gave them fits last year? Somebody was
watching different games than I was watching. Jordan isn't as good on
offense as they were last year, and just as bad as last year on defense. Which
was horrendous! Out of any part of Bingham's defense this year, their
secondary is probably the strength. Jordan can put up 55 on PG. PG isn't
Bingham, not even close! Everybody kept saying the same thing last year about
how Jordan was going to be a great test for them. That Bingham defense is
lights out people!
@MinersHSfootballI agree, #10 and #28 got away with a lot. #28 was jawing
even with us on the sideline after plays, and did you also notice how when BG
went hurry up they snapped the ball before the chains were set?! and then the
chains were set after the fact at the spot where they advanced the ball, easy
yards if you asked me. definite home cooking going on but ultimately like you
said Bingham missed way too many chances to score, the 1st INT down on the 4 yd
line was brutal. I felt Bingham was the better team that night.
@adwightWhat?? 5A semifinals last year: Bingham 48 LP 13 143 yds
passing and 2 INT, that hardly gave Bingham fits. Jordan didn't fair much
better during the season picked off Kaf 4 times. Bingham is head and shoulders
above the rest.
Bingham shut down Osa last year twice, that's NOT going to change this
year, No team will stop Bingham this year MIINER PRIDE
RE: Adwwright"That's why teams like Lone Peak have given
them fits over the years"Are you talking about 07 when Bingham
won 31-3? I think LP had 1 first down. Maybe 08 when Bingham won 24-8. I am sure
LP would have beat the Miners in 2009 or 2010, but they never got a chance. LP
did beat Bingham in 2011, which was a 9-4 team and the worst Bingham team since
03. LP had a stacked team and a great OL and great QB. The next year Bingham
went 10-3. Those 2 years would have been banner years for almost any school in
the State, but not for Bingham. How did last year's playoff game go with LP
and their quick passing attack? How about the Jordan game with their great QB.
Jordan was much better last year with Moss as a second option. This year,
Bingham will win by at least 4 TDs.
My last comment didn't show up so whatever. Binghams Achilles heel is the
quick passing attack. That's why teams like Lone Peak have given them fits
over the years. Their secondary is improved but I think a team that can get it
done through the air has a chance of beating Bingham this year. Jordan has a
good shot, but unless they can play d they won't beat them.
I think the marquee will be when Jordan visits Bingham this year. Bingham has
struggled severely at times with a potent AIR attack and a very mobile
quarterback. They do however defend the running attack better than any team in
the state. Jordan this year has by far the best and most talented quarterback in
the state of Utah, who is very mobile and has a rocket for an arm. Jordan will
score points against the Miners, as like I've already said, Bingham's
secondary has struggled against this type of quarterback. And yes, Bingham will
score points as well against a mediocre defense at best for the Beetdiggers.
This game will be an offensive showcase and a shootout, to where it could come
down to whoever has the ball last might win. Mark this one down in your
calendar. I do feel that Jordan has the best shot out of all 5A schools, that
could pull off the upset.
I get tired of hearing how BG won because of officiating, especially from the
Bingham line coach Lui. Of course he hasn't ever been very circumspect
when it comes to taking responsibility. Get over it lui, you guys played well,
showed well, now please show class and stop whining about the officials.
There is only 2 schools in 5A that can go toe to toe with the Bingham Miners and
probably pull a win...Brighton and Herriman...Timpview does not count because
there in 4A. Spread teams are not going to win a Championship in 5A this year
and I guarantee it! High powered offenses and solid defense from
Bingham/Brighton/and Herriman will control the line of scrimmage and time
management against these spread offenses. Jordan/PG/Lone Peak/American
fork/Davis/Syracuse, do not have the defense that can hold up against a smash
mouth offense for 4 quarters. 5A 2014 Champs or up for grabs with
these 3 teams "Bingham/Brighton/and Herriman"!
Husker1 is right. Just in the Dallas/Ft.Worth area, there are 3-4 Bingham's
and 10 Timpview/LP/PG/Herriman type teams. Same thing with CA and FL. I believe
Utah has more kids per capita that go on to play D1 than any other State. There
are 5 former Bingham players that will start or see significant time at BYU, a
couple more at Utah and a couple more at USU. Pritchard and Cantwell will be
playing at Oregon St next year. Navy has a 4 year starter on their OL from
Bingham as well. East, LP, PG, Alta and Timpview have kids playing all over as
well. There is a lot of talent in Utah, which is why big schools are recruiting
Great effort by the Miners. I've seen prep football all over the country
and the best teams in Utah are very, very competitive. We just don't have
as many of these high-caliber teams because we don't have as many schools
as states like CA, FL, OH, etc., especially private schools.Timpview
and Pleasant Grove have wins over CA teams but I wouldn't put those
victories in the same class as this Bingham effort. Bingham played one of the
top teams in the country. It remains to be seen how good Mission Hills and
Torrey Pines are on a national or even CA scale.
I was at the game. BG had some home cooking, like several questionable spots and
several easy pass int calls that should have been called. I noticed #10 shove a
Bingham lineman well after the play and watched him the rest of the game. He
should have had a dozen un-sportsman line flags throw on him. Any one of those
could have changed the outcome, but in the end BG just made one more play. If
they played 10 times it might be 5-5 or 6-4 at best. The teams were evenly
matched. I doubt BG is the best team in the country. I noticed Gehrig was either
off, or this is the first time he was playing equal talent. He missed no less
than 5 wide open receivers. Maybe he was nervous after that first pick. He will
bounce back and the Miners will roll. It is great to read all the comments about
how there are other teams that could knock them off. Possible, but highly
Great game. Great teams. Too bad anyone had to lose. Great showing Miners
Football in the sate as a whole isn't as strong as it has been in the past,
except Bingham. All those teams won't even touch Bingham. Jordan and pg
play absolutely no defense at all, Brighton shouldn't even be in the
conversation. Minus OSA they have no one. Herriman had the best shot and
Binghams oline played awful and they still won. The oline played a ton better
this week, against a way better team. They have the best oline coach in the
state at any level. The best staff in the state hands down. There defense is
unreal and won't give up more than 14 in a game in state all year. They
just held the number one team in the country to 23 in overtime, and that was
with 3 short fields. Offense will continue to get better and it will be ugly
when playoffs come around. Miners Will be 5A champs. I really don't think
anyone has a shot.
They're not 5A but I think I would put TImpview in there.I
think Jordan, Brighton and PG would have to be considered threats. Brighton has very good athletes.Jordan has Kafentzis and with him,
they have a shot.PG has very good athletes and a proven coach.
Who are the teams that have a chance to beat Bingham?
I do not see Bingham loosing another game. Had a friend that attended that game
in LV last night and said Bingham was the better team and and Bishop Gorman is
easily one of the best teams in the country.Well done Bingham. I am
I have to agree with Eagle. I saw their game against Herriman and I think there
are 4 or 5 teams this year with a good chance of beating Bingham. Until
Bingham's offense gets it going they are going to have some tough games in
the future. It's anyone's title this year.
Great performance by Bingham and yes Utah prep football quality is substantial
and on the rise. While Bingham took Bishop Gorman to the brink, I actually
think the Miners are far from a lock to win the 5A. I'm not saying this to
begrudge the Miners in any way but to illustrate just how good some of Beehive
States team are.
Well this proves it. Bingham can play on a national level. Taking the number 1
team into OT is very impressive. Bingham could of won this game which is huge
for both Bingham and Utah. Proving that our state isn't to be ignored on
the national scene.Timpview made the same statement in California.
Proud of the Miners and Thunderbirds. Way to represent Utah boys.
