    I see some of the Judge supporters are a little testy, defensive even.


    It is a sure thing (95% anyway) that Judge will win this weekend and add another banner to their stadium, and most likely, win again next year. Then, most likely, they will tire of this 3a rural league, and request to move up. Least they should.

    Several rural 3a teams had a darn good football team and couldn't even come close to the 'Dogs. Judge is a very talented team. Could probably win 3aa.

    I'm glad we get to play the bigger schools like Judge. I wish Juan Diego was still in 3A. Would we beat them every time (or even a majority of the time)? No. But it'd make us better. No more whining about recruiting or size of the school, just go win!

    You never hear Millard or San Juan complain about having to play Manti when they were all in 2A. They just went out there and played. Newflash: There's going to be big and small schools in every classification! Quite whining about it and play up!

    Go Templars!

    I just heard that they are changing things next year to avoid this travesty and make everyone happy. It will be an all Catholic School League:
    Week 1: Judge Memorial Bulldogs vs. Juan Diego Soaring Eagle
    Week 2: Judge vs. Juan Diego
    Week 3: Soaring Eagle vs. Bulldogs
    Week 4: JDCHS vs. JMCHS
    Week 5: Eagles vs. Dogs
    Week 6: Judge Subaru's vs. Juan Diego Range Rover's
    Week 7: Playoffs
    Week 8: Championship Game

    I just checked with the South Sanpete School district and they will allow a student that lives in Price to attend and play football at Manti High...so I'm not sure what you are crying about. Basically all high schools in Utah have open enrollment if you fill out the proper paperwork. Also, I bet the Manti players aren't thrilled that their fans are making excuses for them losing, before they even play the game. Yeah, Manti High, a school that participates in 2A in other sports but has 3A enrollment.

    yeah I am pretty sure most of Judge's team just flies in from out of state for game day

    Judge, Juan Diego and all the the private schools should play "up" a classification level or two because they are not hampered by school district boundaries.

    GO MANTI!!
