Is East's record really 2-7 because it was they wouldn't be in the
state tournament, right?
How is East the clear favorite? They won't play at home, have lost 3
straight to Logan, and won't have matich for their first 3 games.. No
disrespect as they are an excellent team, I just don't think there is a
Orem is so under rated.
I would think at this point that Logan is the team to beat...they have beaten
East 3 times in the last 12 months!!!East is a powerful team...but
some simple game planning will allow Herriman to beat them at home this
weekend.Look for Herriman and Logan to match up at RES for a chance
to play Bountiful, Mountain Crest or Orem...yes I said Orem. The upper bracket
is wide open for anyone to take!!!!
Logan will definitely have to earn a trip to rice. What a killer first round!
First round 4A is definitely more intense than 5A this year, but there may still
be some upsets in 5A. But you guys are kidding yourselves if you think that East
won't sail past Herriman. Herriman has been better than I thought they
were, but East has too much motivation at this point to not show up to play
their A game! 37-14 final score. I'm more looking forward to the Timpview
vs Logan game! I pick Timpview 27-24.
EAST is going to run through MTVIEW tonight and will do the same this weekend
against herriman this weekend.
Everyone on here that says East is going to smash Herriman...what is this based
on??? Herriman and East have had 2 common opponents and the score and outcome
were identical. Region 7 is 3-2 versus Region 6...so this belief that East will
smash Herriman is either pride or lack of understanding of the game.As I have watched film of East I can see that they are a strong
team...however...East only has an advantage over Herriman at offensive line and
defensive line. They are equal at linebacker and Herriman has the edge at
secondary. The teams are equal at running back, Herriman has the edge at QB and
WR. A simple game plan by Herriman can overcome the deficiency at the line.I don't think East will smash Herriman and I am predicting Herriman
to win by 3 to 7 points. Regardless of who wins this game...the game will be
decided in the 4th quarter. I will not be shocked when Herriman wins...but I
think most of the valley will be.
Go Herriman! You can do it:) I for one will be rooting for you guys!
@bigbenzoWhy do you possibly thing your secondary and your QB and RB
are better then East?What that means to me is that you havent seen
East yet this year.They are bigger then any other Line in the
state.Herriman could not score on Riverton who is half the size of East!
East has there work cut out for them but shoot I think they win by
14 points or more.Herriman can shut up the state and all this matter
real quick with a WIN saturday. Stoked for the game, Hopefully its at Noon!
@binghamalum - because I have eyes and know the game. As far as Herriman's
secondary...I don't know of a better secondary in 4A or in Utah. Mobley is
the hardest hitting safety in the state...and yes that includes WX Sean Barton
and he has the most tackles and PBUs of any defensive back in Utah. Mobley, Hay
and Bernard as a group are intimidating and will not back down from Fakahafua.
I believe our QB is better than East's because of his size and ability to
throw the ball upfield...but I think at RB East and Herriman are pretty even.
Tulutau is awesome...but Bernard is equally impressive and is complemented by
Farmer as the only backfield in Utah with two 1,000 yd rushers.I
have watched film on 9 of East's games and will be watching the East/Logan
game tonight. I agree that East has the advantage on the offensive and
defensive line...I have never doubted that. However, I believe a simple
gameplan can overcome our issues at the line of scrimmage.In the
end...this will be a game of the ages!!!
Wow, for all the talk coming out of Herrimann they'd better show up and win
or nobody will ever listen to anything coming out of West Riverton again.
@BigBenzo88...who is Mobley?...No way is he or any Harriman player better than
Sean Barton. Sean is the real deal just ask Stanford. It doesn't matter
who wins your game cause the CATS are coming out of this bracket. This is OUR
year!! GO WX!! GO CATS!!
Mobley is Benzo's son, it seems. Good player. But East will still win.
Nothin' but love, Benzo! If Herriman pulls it off, I will be the first to
jump on here and finally admit that Herriman is as legit as you've been
saying all season long. Even if they were to lose later in the playoffs, a win
over East would prove your point and solidify Herriman's place on the map!
I don't doubt they have the heart for it. We'll see if that's
It takes much more than simple game planning to win a game. The players have to
execute that game plan vs. a very talented East team. I've seen great game
plans get blown up many times, it's the players who have to make it work.
Great coaching can only get you so far.
No one is looking at mtn crest... they are the real deal and should technically
be undefeated... and northridge resting more than a dozen starters is a bunch of
bull... they played all out and we still beat... Stangs are going to play east
at state, no other way about it!!!
