    Who is leading any trash talk? Everybody on here started talking about East being the best team this year. Why are you even bringing up last years teams? What does that have to do with this year? All I'm saying is, right now, Bingham has more impressive victories than East does. East hasn't really beaten a top tier team this year. Bringing up last years teams doesn't prove your claim.

    Leave it to Bingham fans to lead the trash talk. As far as the best team in that state, I would have to go with East. East lost to a very good Timpview team in the playoffs last year and who knows what the outcome of the game vs Jordan last year would have been but East was right there to win it. Bingham lost to a very beat up Syracuse team in the playoffs last year who ended up getting shalacked by the Jordan team that East couldve beat. All in all its a new year, who ever is the best team in state will prove it down the homestretch. Would love to see East vs Bingham

    Bingham also beat Brighton without their best WR and one of their best DB's.

    As of right now Bingham has more to show off this season than East. East hasn't faced a powerhouse yet. East isn't going to see Logan or Timpview until the play offs either so even if they win the next 3 games (and they should) it won't paint a clear picture until they are on the field against real competitors.

    I am shocked that no one has set up a Best of the Best game yet. 5A champion vs 4A champion would draw in a HUGE crowd and make a ton of money. All proceeds could go to charity or something. I would of given anything to see 2011 Lone Peak vs 2011 Logan. Lone Peak that year is one of the greatest teams Utah has seen. Chase Hansen was legendary and a real pleasure to watch play. Logan was scary that year as well. I think LP would of won, but the game would of been something to remember. We miss out on some incredible games because the season ends 1 game too soon. :(

    So who has East beat this year that is really impressive? A 3 loss Jordan team? A 4 loss Alta team? Wow, impressive! Bingham thumped an undefeated Brighton team that beat Alta already. They beat a 4 time Colorado state champion team in Valor. So if you really want to say East is the best based on schedule, at least have something to back that claim up.

    cubs4life- Where did you hear Clay Moss was not playing this Friday? I had not heard anything, although he was limping pretty bad at the Alta game.

    Binghams victory at and over Valor Christen is far bigger than anything East has accomplished this year, don't kid you self. Bingham is the best team in the state, the media knows it and so do I. They have played a tougher schedule than East, they would beat East.

    Go Miners!

    "East is the best team in the state this year." - The sportswriters don't agree.
    "it is about this year and this year only" - The rankings are based on this year.
    " shedule (sic) wise east is superior" - Tell the above-mentioned writers.
    You East fans are too concerned with rankings. They're opinions. If East takes a state championship you can argue for their being the best at some level. Until that happens your claims ring hollow.

    East wouldn't beat Valor Christian, or Bingham, so I'll refrain from crowning them the best in the state, did they go out of state this year and beat a 4 time state champion?

    Wow that comment was laughable and all you other 4 A lovers. Last time I checked Timpview also had to play in the snow right? So why did it ONLY affect East, can't they handle playing in the snow? Crown them champs when they win multiple Titles in the last 10 years like Bingham has done, Brighton sure thought they were gonna run Bingham off the field so might wanna check your smack talk at the gates before thinking East would just walk all over the Miners

    East is the best team in the state this year. dont talk about years past or state championships this decade it is about this year and this year only they are #1 bingham is great but east is on another level. good luck to both, one day a 4a/5a champion of champions game would be great but shedule wise east is superior.

    @adwight Also, the first half was when the snow was the worst. In the second half they cleared the field and the snow let up, and that was when Timpview was able to dominate. The year before they seemed to have fumbles without snow against a worse Timpview team.

    East and Bingham would be a toss up in my opinion. East could slow down the Bingham run game, and vice versa. I think East has more weapons and could win the game but I'd be willing to pay extra to watch that game.
    Alta will still prove a tough opponent for either Hunter or Taylorsville and could end up at Syracuse, again.

    @adwight actually it seems to be much harder to throw the ball downfield than it is to run a triple option in those weather conditions.

    mab93: You might want to learn the history before you make comments about Bingham not playing 4A teams. They tried scheduling Timpview multiple times over the past few years. Timpview always wanted that game to take place of the Bingham vs Alta game. No way was Bingham going to replace that game. East is a tough team. But until they win a state title this decade, you may want to hold off on crowning them "Best in State" in any division!

    A lot of people forget the conditions of the East vs. Timpview game last year. Torrential snow is ridiculously hard to run the triple option in, and usually in those situations the team that can pass the best is going to win. And that's what happened. East will roll through 4A. They have the best team in the state, no doubt. Too bad they don't play Bingham.

    East and Logan will decide who is #1 in Utah during the 4A playoffs.

    Bingham doesn't seem to play top 4A teams. It seems they are worried they might lose. That is one thing I respect about Alta. They are willing to take the loss. By the way, I see a 3 way tie for first. Too bad East and Logan didn't schedule a non-region game instead of East and MC. I guess nobody could have known. I do wish they had at least a 4A / 5A playoff game.

    Love how DesNews loves Bingham so much. Would love to see them take on East. Thats the only question left in who is the best in Utah. Jordan and Alta couldn't even give East a game. Stop calling them #1 in the state unless you put on an *ASTERIX for that.
