    Pig Skin, you are probably right. Everybody beat up on Alta. You havn't come up with anything good there copernicus.

    @ Gunner, in the first match up our middle linebacker didn't have a tackle til the 2nd half cause our D-line was on skates, the few times we put our biggins in that was neutralized so we'll see, but hopefully emotions carry them for 4 quarters. Either way it should be a great match up.

    Here is somemore blah, blah. Corner Canyon beats Alta if they ever meet in a game. This year my money would have been on Corner Canyon.

    Porkpies: And that's usually where Bingham gets the advantage. They don't play anybody both ways. So their kids are all fresh in the 4th qtr. A lot of the games, you see the other team just dead tired. So that will be interesting to see on the Brighton side. To see if those kids are tired from going both ways.

    The real question is about depth, Brighton lacks depth, you can argue starting 5 but the drop off after that is a cliff. That's why Brighton so rarely had any of them play both ways, they didn't hardly at all in the Bingham game, hence the 8 yrds every stinkin dive play. They played it more in the Jordan game, to secure the 2 spot and be opposite Bingham til the finals (which worked btw). They had to play it more with Herriman and some in the Semi-final game with Jordan, obviously you'll see a gut full of it Friday since there's nothing left to save them for. The trenches will be different, you'll see, but Brighton will still have to play a near perfect game, I agree with that.

    Pig Skin Fan `` you are kind of a dork. Who cares about the kids Parents. It was an article about the Brighton linemen and all they have done to get where thay are. If they are the best, they will win. If they are not, Bingham will. Blah blah Blah mom was the athelete, dad was the athelete blah blah blah. You said a whole bunch about nothing. Porkpies --- sounds like you have something invested in the game, good luck to your team. I will be at all 3 games on Friday, and it should be one of the better championship days in a long time. I have East over TV but a close game. Pine View over Desert Hills and a toss up in the 5A. Bingham is really good, but Brighton is playing better each week.

    I was talking about the Barton mom and dad, not the kid. The mom is where all the Athleticism came from not the dad. They are the ones II want to Race at half time. Are you on board now?

    @ Pig Skin Fan, I've been to all the games for all three of his years, I'm not excited about it, just saying you're were kinda laying in heavy on a kid that is working really hard, that's all. No worries on my end.

    Actually the first time these teams showed that binghams line is better, and until Brighton proves otherwise they have no business saying they have the best line. They will get there chance on Friday.

    53 yards vs 214 yds show who's O-line is the most dominant. Brighton has to play a perfect game, Bingham just needs to do business as usual. MINER PRIDE

    Pick the Sport, My money is still on the Barton Mom. She is in the Utah Utes Athletic Hall of Fame. Just Telling the Truth. Relax Porkpies. Go to the game and see for yourself and you will agree with me. Lets have them race at half time, Okay.


    I agree the best two Lines will play each other again. This next game will determine the Best Line and Team.

    Brighton has the second best line in the state and it showed when these 2 teams met earlier in the year. Bingham will win the game and the battle in the trenches Again. Brighton couldn't run on Bingham last time around, it was the pass where they got there yards.

    @ Pig Skin Fan, NOT COOL, I'm sure you consider yourself some kind of a football expert, but we're talking about a student athlete here, way too personal and just plain not cool.

    The only part I disaggree with in the article is one part mentioned below:

    "At 6 foot 8 and 296 pounds, he’s been blessed with their athleticism and is arguably the most dominant lineman in the state."

    He is the best O-line in the State, but the athleticism was from the Mother, not the Father. That part I disaggree with. He did got size only from the Father. Have you seen him, no skills.

    Great Job so far, but the next game is the only one that people remember. Second place is meaningless. Good Luck. Barton can go into Professional Wrestling if the NFL football does not work out. Specially the way he dropped the Jordan's D-end last week; WWE/WWF style.

    It's like they've been reading my comments or something. Finally we're talking about the heart of that Brighton attack, those boys have been quietly doing the heavy lifting and movin big bodies all season, love seeing them get the pat on the back. Well done boys!
