    ExTBird: What you don't understand is, if I have a school with 1000 kids in it, and a school with 300 in it, the talent pool is much larger to pull from in the 1000 kid school. If you have a great athlete for every 20 kids, I have more athletes to select from. So yes, they usually are more superior. You put a 3A team in 5A, they may win 1 game a year. It's not that difficult to figure out.

    I really wish people would stop trying to make the classification system into a "skill meter". Teams are not 5A because they are superior to other schools. Teams are not 4A because they can't compete in 5A. Teams are not 1A because they are awful and can't play against anyone else.

    This has to get pointed out every single year because someone always tries to act like "playing down" is a charity game, or beneath certain schools. Schools like Timpview, Logan and East would thrash most 5A schools, most years. Timpview just beat Lone Peak last night. Should we move Timpview to 5A, and Lone Peak to 4A until they redeem themselves?

    It is based on location, and population folks. Nothing more. Don't read into it just because 5 is a bigger number than 4. Bingham is a larger school, not a better school. That is why they are 5A. There is no reason to feel ashamed for losing to a team in a smaller division. Talent is talent and smaller school size doesn't mean smaller talent. I'd wager that East/Logan could easily wipe out 99% of 5A this year. Probably even Bingham.

    Not in state they haven't. They have played 4A schools out of state. I.E. Bonneville this year. I've stated it before. It's really a no win situation to play down. Sure it would be fun to see. But if they win, people just say that they should win. If they lose, what kind of blow to your teams confidence does it give losing to a lower classed team? Don't see the purpose when there are plenty of good 5A teams they can schedule.

    Parry, I remember that game very well vs Provo. I played in that game and we were thumped! I'd love to see a 5A vs 4A game after the championships for each division have been played. Markymark: Every time Peck tried to get the game scheduled, Wong wanted him to replace that game with the Bingham vs Alta game. No way Peck was going to give that game up. Nor should have he.

    Bingham tried to play timpview every year from 06-11 but Wong wouldn't play them

    Glad Bingham didn't win by much... keeps 'em hungry for the next one. As good as that Brighton win was, this team still is looking for the same thrill they got with Valor Christian. If Jordan will bring their best game this Friday, the Miners will be ready for them. Hope the refs call a fair game and may the team who wants it the most come out victorious. Respect all, fear none.
    PS. We'll never know who will win between Bingham and East this season!!!

    Go Miners

    What makes you think Jordan's defense is any better than Brightons'? haha Bingham will destroy Jordan, it all hangs on their QB, Moss won't get his yards just like Osa, watch and learn this friday buddy

    Utahfan1: I don't care if you're a fan of Jordan or not. You stated all of Bingham's starters were in until the end. The entire backfield was 2nd string the entire 4th qtr. Osa didn't play because the Miners have an actual defense. He's been playing against little league defenses. He found out what a real defense looks like. It looks like 69 yards!

    If you want to talk about the past seasons Brighton might want to make the playoffs first. When was the last time they made the playoffs when they didn't have to play a play in game. I don't think they have won a playoff game since 05 have they?

    To all! Not a Jordan fan! But I still think they will throttle Bingham Friday night!! Jordan should have been on my list as well! Bingham will choke like it has the last 2 years in the playoffs!! As for Brighton winning State Just sit back and watch. Brighton Quarterback has been out the last two games as well, Osa hardly played due to an injury, Just wait!!! Smack talk to cont!!!!

    After watching Brighton take all those brutal hits (all of which we're clean and legal) I really doubt Brighton leaps for joy at the idea of meeting Bingham again in the playoffs or ever again in life lol.

    markymark Pulled starter in the 3rd quater? I'm not sure what game you watched but they all played to the end!! Ps its spelled Bengals!!!

    Bingham pulled some starters in the 3rd quarter when they were up 31-14 to stay healthy as well. The score doesn't do the beat down justice that the miners put on the Bangals.

    Go Miners, take state.

    This game was not as close as the score would suggest, Bingham would have scored 50 if the refs hadn't called back two touchdowns and helped Brighton march down the field in the 3rd quarter what a joke! But aside from that Bingham is the #1 team in the state, the #1 defense in the state and will take state! Go Miners!!! Never out hustled, Never outhit!
