Let's go Rams!!!! Sione Houma should be returning this week. Highland needs to
get that win out in Bountiful to keep school support behind back-up QB Justin
Weaver. Fish may not return for sometime, as he is still on crutches. Look for
number 20 to make some big passes to #49 Hayes Hicken and #9 Malcom Card-Turner.
And Sione Houma to once again dominate the run game. Playing in Bountiful is
hard, both of our state championship teams lost every game at Bountiful and
Woods Cross. Let's see the Rams turn that around this year.
I'am going with all of Perry's picks this week but with a diff score.Beaver 42 Grand 18Gunnison 17 Am Leadership 6Kanab 38 South Sevier

R9 Playoff Breakdown Sept 23PV @ CedarOne of these
teams, but not both, will likely get a R9 playoff berth. Question is, which one?
This game could go a long way toward settling the issue.PV faces a
must-win situation. A loss to Cedar would leave Panthers' playoff hopes on life
support, with Hurricane likely to pull the plug next week. Cedar, with only 1
region loss, could lose this game and still have a playoff shot. I like the
Redmen to get their first win in a close one.Dixie @ DHWinner of this one has the inside track to the No. 2 playoff slot in R9. Loser
is probably No. 3 seed. A DH win will have Thunder dreaming of R9 title. However
DH still has to play Hurricane and Cedar. Its prolific Flyer O vs stingy Thunder
D. Should be a great game. IMO too close to call.SC @ HurricaneA battle of R9 unbeatens. But seriously, SC is unlikely to be a playoff
contender this year. Probably the only thing Tigers need to worry about is not
looking past Warriors to PV next week. Not likely to be close.
2A Picks:ALA/Gunnison- Both teams were shutout last week. Who wants to
score this week? BTW #44 Harris for the Bulldogs is a very good player.
Gunnison 28 ALA 14Emery/Millard- Both teams posted shutouts (see above).
Who will stop the other team from scoring? Millard 35 Emery 14N.
Summit/N.Sevier- The Wolves are still looking for a region win, but the Braves
will be too much. N.Summit 21 N.Sevier 14S.Summit/Manti- The game of the
week in 2A. The Wildcats pull off the upset on the road in a tough defensive
game. SS 19 Manti 17Grand/Beaver- The Beavers continue to establish
themselves as the only possible real threat for SJ. Beaver 35 Grand 7Richfield/Parowan- The Rams finally get a TD in region play, but not a win.
Richfield 21 Parowan 7SJ/Enterprise- The Broncos suffer a little bus lag,
but are still too much for the Wolves. SJ 28 Enterprise 14S.Sevier/Kanab-
SS still looking for 1st win of season. They won't find it in Kanab. Kanab 21
SS 7 Good luck to all the teams.
My 3A Picks:Bear River over Ben LomondCanyon View over OgdenDelta over Carbon*Desert Hills over DixieGrantsville over
TooeleHurricane over Snow CanyonJuan Diego over UintahJudge
over Wasatch*Morgan over StansburyPark City over UnionPayson
over North Sanpete*Pine View over CedarSpanish Fork over JuabBIG games:*DH/Dixie - Will this decide # 2 and 3 seed?*Morgan/Stansbury - If Stansbury wins there will be a region title showdown
with Grantsville. If Morgan wins then region title possibly could end in 3 way
tie IF Stansbury beats Grantsville.*PV/Cedar - Will Cedar pull off the
victory over D1, high and mighty Pine View and push them out of the playoffs?
**Morgan/Stansbury**I'm meaning if Morgan, Grantsville, and
Stansbury all win their other games too! Forgot to put that!
As I said in another thread... Morgan doesn't make the playoffs. They also lose
big this week.
With two weeks of preparation, and Pine View falling apart, I have got to take
Cedar over Pine View this week. Cedar gave Hurricane a scare two weeks ago and I
believe they have what it takes to knock off PV. Should be a very intriguing
match up! Best of luck to all teams this week!
For Pine View the next 2 games are the biggest of the year and perhaps many
years.This current team has been touted as one of the best in their history so
if they lose this week in Cedar, and Cedar always gives them trouble, they could
be out of the playoffs.If this current team does not make the playoffs that
would be one of the biggest melt downs ever.Still time for PV to turn it
around,we'll see what the team is made of.
Good to hear Carver's and Boy's of Fall's predictions for 2A.ALA/Gunnison This one comes down to who wants to redeem themselves after last
weeks shutdowns. Gunnison 27 ALA 13Emery/Millard I think this might be
closer than people are thinking. Millard 20 Emery 13N. Summit/N.Sevier I
might have to disagree with Carver and Boys of Fall on this one. To much
passing from North Sevier. Sevier 27 Summit 13S.Summit/Manti This will be
a defensive battle. Manti 14 SS 7Grand/Beaver Beaver continues to show a
good defense. Beaver 28 Grand 7Richfield/Parowan Rams have struggled to
find offense and that will continue. Richfield 34 Parowan 6SJ/Enterprise
Sorry Boy's of Fall no falling a sleep on the bus for the Broncos. My apologies
Carver. SJ 41 Enterprise 6S.Sevier/Kanab I agree that SS won't be leaving
Kanab with their first win. At least they can look forward to having Parowan
coming to town in two weeks. Kanab 35 SS 13
Cyprus sorry it's going to be ugly! CATS will be done in quarter 1. GO WX!!
Just sayin' it would be easy if you were to Play Bingham,Show some
class man, uncalled for, and watch your mouth when your not even the cream of 4A
yet or have ever been in football for that matter.Let it go! Say
good luck Cyprus! Play hard may the best teams win!One
Week from today, Lone Peak finally Visits Bingham!Its on TV so everyone
should check out two of the premier teams in the State along with Alta.
I am a huge Wx supporter and am not even sure just sayin is actually one. Might
be some kid tryin to give Wx a bad name. That's my suspicion, anyways. Hope my
cats get the win, like they should. But I also hope it is an entertaining game.
Good luck to both teams.

Murray's coach apparently resigned today. Nice guy but struggled. Certainly
there has to be someone out there that can turn a program around....please! We
have the athletes up until they reach high school and decide to quit or transfer
to other schools.

winning streak ends on Friday. Go Wolves!!

I dont think San Juan goes to Enterprise and blows them out, but San Juan wont
lose this game. Im thinking Boys of Fall is right on this one.
@ SJH BRONCOSThanks for the vote of confidence. To say that there will be
"no falling a sleep on the bus for the Broncos" is a stretch. That's
a LONG drive. But, you guys are pretty used to that. It's not as far for us
but my son says that going to Enterprise reminds him of the movie Glory Road.
When they're on the bus headed to El Paso & the coach tells the players
"Welcome to God's country" & one of the players says "If this
is God's country He sure don't want no neighbors" (or something like that).
I actually didn't think it was that bad. El Paso was much worse.Hope you
have a safe trip.
What more could a tiny town hope for than being nestled right between ST.George
and Cedar City. Come on Wolves, kick some behind!
Wow.......Herriman is a huge underdog against Skyline!!!This will be
an incredible game...but look for Herriman to win late in the 4th quarter.
Region 9 is taking shape and there are a couple of surprises.Hurricane is looking great, DH is performing well, Dixie had there first
setback to Hurricane last week. PV is 0-2 in region CC with out a win is the
biggest surprise. SC and CV are bringing up the rear.This weeks
predictions,Hurricane 42 Snow Canyon 7 Hurricane will clear the
bench early.Dixie 28 Desert Hills 21 This will be a battle of a
great offense v.s. a great defense. I am going with the offense on this one DH
struggles to put points on the board and won't be able to put up enough.Cedar 24 Pine View 19 Pine View is struggling and I think Peacock will
have Cedar ready for this game.Canyon View 20 Ogden 12 Canyon View
will go on the road to get the victory.
I am going to say that CH beat WJ for the first time in history. CH big men are
back and at full strength. BA is back after his week off caused from a car
accident. And JC is back after a sprained ankle. Look for CH to upset WJ for the
first time in history. CH 28 WH 24
I just love how everyone acts like San Juan has never been on a bus before...We
had over 2,000 miles last football season alone! Our bus trips are like mom's
home cooking for you other teams. I also find it amusing that we
"hope" the bus ride will slow down San Juan, cuz our team can't. Good
Red Rocks.Red Rocks in your head!!!!Pine View will win big. D
Hills will also win big. If Hurricane scores less then 60 that would be a shock.
Canyon View will go clear to Ogden and lose big. 1of 5 for Red Rocks, nice
try. The only surprise in R 9 is Pine View at 0 and 2 .
Prediction for Region 7 contests:Westlake 43 Hillcrest 14Oly
13 Murray 10Skyline 47 Herriman 17Westlake will finally
unleash, Oly will sneak by (again), and Skyline will win big.
@Golden Helmet... Skyline 47-17, huh? I think you need to loosen the ole' chin
strap on that golden dome from the '70s and join us in the real world! I watched
the Skyline-Juan Diego a few weeks ago and just was not that impressed with the
Eagles! How about a more realistic prediction.....Herriman 35 Skyline 28.
Can't wait for the Fremont-Davis game tonight when Fremont proves all you
doubters wrong again just like last year when they said Davis was gonna beat
them. Go Fremont!
@Golden Helmet - I like your confidence in Skyline. They are a very good team.
Win or lose...I don't see any team getting blown out. I think a more reasonable
score will be 42-35 in either direction.I'm still amazed at the
amount of chatter that Herriman is not a good team. Herriman is a very good,
young team. A predominant amount of our starters are Juniors and Sophomores.
We a have a very strong offense that can score (2nd in scoring in 4A and 4th in
scoring in Utah). Our defense is young, but athletic and gets better every
game.The fact that our offense can score is the main reason I say
Herriman wins. If it comes down to a shootout...Herriman can hang with and beat
any team. Look for Herriman to score and look for Skyline to score, but I
believe a key defensive stop will happen in the second half that will change the
direction of the game and eventually lead to a Mustang win.This is
an important region and 4A game because the winner is guaranteed a playoff spot
and has the inside track to the Region Crown! GO MUSTANGS!
Big Benzo, Play someone decent nad you wont be up there in stats, buddy, if you
ever get back to 5A, you wont win again because boys to your west in the Mines
are just laughing
I like your comment but Bingham is to the East
Skyline v. Herriman? Both teams rely on the run, so don't expect a ton of
possessions. My prediction: Herriman 27 Skyline 24.Pine View v.
Cedar? PV has backs against the wall. Cedar has had two weeks to prepare for
the Panthers. Last year, it was a fake PAT that won the game for the Redmen.
Should be close but a low scoring game. PVHS 28 CHS 27Hurricane
will win big...predict halftime score of 35-7. After that, SCHS will get some
better possessions as the Tigers empty the benches. HHS 49 SC 21
Region 7 Predictions vs. Region 7 Outcomes:Westlake 43 Hillcrest 14
(Westlake 47 Hillcrest 27)Oly 13 Murray 10 (Olympus 41 Murray 10)Skyline 47 Herriman 17 (Skyline 27 Herriman 26)I need to admit,
that last score was more to rile up the posters from Herriman, and it worked.Great job Eagles! Our last real hurdle will be Westlake and we will
capture the region title! Great blocked kick!@UteFan21: are you
impressed with Skyline now? I am honestly impressed with Herriman.@BigBenzo88: take it from me, Herriman IS a good team. A great game tonight,
it is a shame that there could only be one winner.Final prediction:
Coach Dupaix WILL get his 300th this year!
Perhaps we can have a truce now. Everyone will admit that Herriman is a good
team and BigBenzo will stop posting ten times every week that Herriman has the
best chance in 4A to go 10-0. That 'best chance' always did belong to Logan.Just so you know, I was pulling for Herriman. Just trying to look on
the bright side now.
