    There are many people that still have the right to feel bitter with East. In saying that, I feel so bad for ALL the East players but they should not have been allowed to compete. The coaches and administration their knew exactly what they were doing and the UHSAA practically chickened out of making a HUGE statement by allowing them back in the playoffs.

    Had they stuck with the decision to leave them out, every student on that EAST team would have learned a great lesson in life on INTEGRITY and how they paid the price for their leaders' dishonesty.

    The lesson learned now is that with a few sad faces and heart pulling stories, you'll be able to weasel your way out for a second chance even though more people were affected by it in the long run (Herriman, Logan, Box Elder, Cyprus and all other schools that were affected by the playoff seedings).

    With it all said and done, they still didn't win the championship so the one feel good story they had left (winning it all) to justify the decision is gone and the haunting will now begin.

    @ND40 East shouldn't have even participated...actions that are made by others, but those actions are still made as a team regardless of ones that didn't know because everyone can claim that they "didn't know" rules are rules and unfair ruling by a board that had no ground to uplift the sanctions that were completely fair and right the first time. Yeah, yeah some of them are innocent players, guess the whole system is like playing monopoly now...glad East lost!

    So proud of our Timpview defense. With 9 new starters and a new DC in Todd Cusick, they have made great strides in solidifying themselves as one of the best in the state. All the press (deservedly) goes to Jake Lloyd and an amazing offense. That seems to be fine with our defensive unit. Most teams that have played us this year (excepting Alta & Lone Peak early on)have found that moving the ball is possible, but scoring can be a problem. They are a resilient and focused group. We know that Mountain Crest has an awesome defense as well so we respect the possibility that they could be the one team to stop our offense. Can't wait to see how this plays out on Friday. GO (Angry) TBIRDS!!!!

    Don't feel one bit bad for East. Their season should have ended two weeks ago. Great job Timpview!
