    Hmmm! an article about a coach in shorts and golf shirt during a snowstorm... 51 pictures to go with the article... and none of the coach? only the DesNews.

    The challenges Coach Whittingham faced were much greater than what East has gone through. His players and community lost its beloved coach. I'm not sure Coach Whittingham wanted this job in the particular way he got it. Because of the turmoil, many former assistants left the program for other programs weeks before the start of the summer program, three of which went to rival school Orem. Coach Whittingham had to build his staff almost from scratch in short order with a huge cloud over the program. Then in the space of several weeks, the UHSAA also sanctions the program, actually twice. Unlike East, Timpview paid the fullest punishment for these particular infractions. The players and coaches of Timpview have to be credited for what they have accomplished.

    Fun game to watch. When East went down and scored prior to half, they looked like a machine. I thought it was East's game when Timpview took the next possession down to the five, only to miss the FG with :01 remaining. I was very impressed with Timpview. A lot of talk, albeit from their head coach, about the adversity that The East players had gone through. Thank you Amy for pointing out the difficult task of keeping the program together admits losing a coach in June.

    Congrats to T-view!

    Karma may really exist. East admin and coaching staff acted irresponsibly by looking the other way when it came to determining eligibility. The UHSAA had it right on the first decision. The Board of Trustees (composed of school board members) made the biggest wrong by not following precedence and existing rules.
