This Spanish Fork broadcast is head and shoulders above the broadcast that we
have been getting for the 5A games today. If it were possible I would like to
send these two men and their crew some money to pay for their efforts if they
were to broadcast the 5A game tonight as well!
The three game thing was ridiculous, really unfair to Timpanogos. Sometimes you
just need to push things back a day, the world wouldn't end with a Saturday
In some respects I agree with Apollo 13. Not only did it affect Woods Cross in
that late game to have to travel back up to Bountiful and then be back to UVU
for a 9am game the next day, but I believe it hurt Timpanogas even more having
to play three games in one day yesterday. There is just not enough pitching on
a high school team to play three games in one day, especially when they are
games that result in scores of Win 4-2 Close game, 8-2 Lose second game of the
day, 15-2 lose third game of the day. The way they play these state tourneys in
this state is ridiculous.
kbdaytonUVU gets compensated for the use of their field. They also profit
from concessions and the sale of their merchandise. It is not a donation. BYU
had an open field as did other high schools in the areas. The 5A game could
have been played elsewhere like SLCC as opposed to dumping it on the 4A venue
and placing all 4A games behind schedule by 1.5 hours to start the day. Whoever
made the call to keep the 7:00 pm teams on site until 10:30 only to send them
home was a poor decision. Especially for those who traveled long distances to
watch the game. If that is the UHSAA then so be it. A decision on that game
should have been made at 8:00 when the 4:30 game was still being played to allow
both teams time to return home and rest.
Apollo 13, UVU has nothing to do with what games are played there, it is the
UHSAA that determines EVERYTHING to do with where and when games are played. The
5A fields were unplayable, fortunately UVU has tarps and a proffesional crew to
keep fields in GREAT shape to keep the state tourny running. Maybe we should be
praising UVU for allowing the tounament to happen this year!
Unreal! The feed seems to be a KSL feed today, a major broadcaster and it is
terrible. The previous broadcast were done by Spanish Fork Cable and it never
froze up once. Is this really it, Spanish Fork cable can put together a
internet broadcast better than KSL. WoW!
Whoever is running the 4A tournament at UVU should be terminated. Today was a
mess and it was not all due to the weather. Moving a 5A game to UVU only put
all the 4A teams behind schedule to start the day. The 7:00 pm game did not
start until 10:10 pm and after forcing both teams to stick around all night they
suspended it after the first inning anyway. Who is making these
