1996!! EHS over Box Elder, on the way to the crown!
Good fight, Herriman. Benzo, we'll see you next year. East, way to come
away with the win. In the Game Preview I predicted a 27-17 win for East. Anyone
Tolutau not Pututau, and what was that about 10 days? Lol. Good work East!
Finally, the Heriman posters can shut it down. Even dropping down to the weaker
4A division, Herriman still can't get out of the first round! Pathetic! Go
EAST! Bring on ANOTHER road game. Wow, all that hype and Herriman really
didn't back it up!
@801to415, same could be said about 1995, underrated BE surprises favored East
Like 86&90UTE said.... Wow, all that hype and Herriman couldnt back it up!..
East take state! GO LEOPARDS!!..
@ 86&90UTE, try to stay classy. Herriman earned the opportunity
to play a lower seed team and get a couple of wins in the state playoffs. They
would've run into East on a neutral field and the results may have been the
same, but the Mustangs deserved better treatment by the gutless UHSAA. East is
the better team and showed it tonight, but perhaps you can show some integrity
by congratulating a third year school for making the playoffs every year since
opening. Herriman didn't "hype" up anything but they did bring
respect and excitement to our whole community. We are proud of the great season
and a decent game against a great East team. I was at the game and there was
plenty of respect from both sides. Go Herriman!!Oh, and if there
are more complaints about Herriman "dropping down", that too is a UHSAA
decision. Kinda makes your understanding of the system pathetic.
@86&90UTE - Either your weren't at the game, don't know football
or don't know simple arithmetic. What do you mean when you say "Wow,
all that hype and Herriman really didn't back it up!" Here are the
facts: Herriman held East to its lowest point total of the year at 27.
Herriman scored the 2nd most points against East at 16 (Logan scored the most at
51). Herriman is the only team to hold East scoreless in two quarters.As far as being called pathetic for not getting out of the first round in our
first three years...remember this...over the past 15 years...Herriman has as
many State Championships as East!!!Again...this was a hard fought
game...can't help but to think that this game should have been in 2 weeks
at Rice-Eccles. Hopefully UHSAA will get things worked out in the future so
that this type of fiasco does not happen again. A seeding system based on
ranking and not region would be a nice start. With two of the top five teams in
4A gone...the focus turns to Timpview and East as the teams to beat!!!!
Herriman still got a bad deal with the East controversy. I feel bad for the
Herriman program that got stuck in a terrible spot. East is probably the best 4A
team and Herriman should not have played them in the first round after they had
won their region. Weird how East broke the rules and in many ways landed in a
great spot for the playoffs.
@bigbenzo88you're a byu fan huh?
This was a good game, but again just to much big players and no protectionHerriman showed they have alot of heart and grit, but just quite not
enough against a good team!Region went 0-4 this year in the
playoffs, and some how ifHighland, Bountiful, Woodscross, and East win
this could be crazy all from one region!Even though Woods cross wont
win against Timpview!
@sportsfanforlife - I was born and raised in Ohio, played football at
Northwestern and have only lived in Utah for a few years...I'm a
Northwestern and Ohio State fan and have no connection to BYU, Utah or Utah
State.@binghamalum - I knew both of East's lines were
big...their defensive line was better than I thought. Herriman never backed
down from East...but didn't knock them out when they had the chance.
Herriman went up 8-0 in the 2nd quarter and then let East score on a kickoff and
that shifted momentum back to East. East scored two more times and went up 8-20
over Herriman at the half. Another score by East put the score 8-27...but
Herriman held strong by intercepting an East pass in the endzone and then
scoring again to make it 16-27 and simply ran out of time. I think Region 6
will go 1-3 and Orem, Mountain Crest, Timpview and East will go to Rice-Eccles.
To show the true strength of Herriman...I predict an East State Championship
with no team coming within 11 points of East and no team holding them under 27
LOL @bigbenzoIt does not matter in the playoffs what you lost by!who worries about the strenght of Herriman anymore or care about any
other team not putting up as much fight as your self.You have no
ideea what Box Elder is like, they compete with everyone,Timpview CAN beat
East from what I just saw of Timpview on friday watching that game against the
same Logan team who put up 50 points on East. Granted East was kinda having a
rough week and it was a meaningless game. But this will be the
matchup of East Vs Timpview!The guy who is in love with the WX
wildcats,That nonsense is about to come to a real quick stop with
Timpview coming into town!
nice prediction Beeno.I like how you always find a silvr
lining...and one to make Herriman look good.Let I remind you, East
lost at Logan just a week and a half ago. Timpview went there and destroyed
Logan on that same field.I wouldnt take East over Timpview.
Timpview is better, as I have seen em both. But I am sure TV is focused 100
percent on WX and loves letting people talk about East.Just ask
East vs. Timpview in the Sanction Bowl Semi-Finals.I like Timpview
in this one. They are not as physical but physical enough. Their WR's are
unbelievably fast, just ask Logan. They weren't ready for East last year
but Timpview seems to be cruising at the right speed. It should be a good game.
Box Elder and WX are bumps in the road until this meeting which is really the
state title game of sorts.
Agree to disagree, with all that went down with EAst high its hard to speculate
weather the game against Logan was even crediable. Before the game the coaches
and players learn that there season was done. that took the wind out of their
sails. players looked like they wasnt into the game. with that said in mind i
think the game is going to be a good one (T-View vs East ) 27-23 T-View. The
reason i say that is, East has 3 of their key skill players out. all torn ACL
I was hoping Herriman was going to pull it off, I thought they had it going
until the KO return. However, to all the East fans, lets assume that T-View
gets past WX and East gets past Box Elder. You gave up over 300 yards passing
to a team who's main game plan is to run the ball. Herriman throws the
ball maybe 12 times a game, if that. You were exposed against Logan despite
finding out days before not just before the game Mr. Dex-87 that you were not in
the playoffs. T-View is going to light the weak secondary of East up. Sorry,
your in trouble, yet you do have a couple of weeks to get ready for it. Good
Luck you will need it. You have a target on your back, everybody wants you out.
If you survive and do win it all, the more power to ya. But I just don't
see it happening.
Dex_87East has 1 player out with a torn ACL.
I'm just one person, but after ten years of attending the 4A state final, I
wil not be attending this year. I just can't get excited about it after
seeing the favoritism being dished out. I say lets boycott it and send a
message to the UHSAA that they will definitely hear.
