Parry always picks against southern teams Even when there rating is higher...
typical northern bias
southpride56It's not Parry who's picking against Dixie.
It's the sportswriter. Parry ranked Dixie slightly higher. Having seen
both teams play several times, I don't think the sportswriter is doing
anything out of bias. He may be wrong, but he's not acting irrationally.
You wouldn't be up in the night to pick either team.
@ Southpride56Here is the posting from 2 weeks ago. Please tell me how the
south teams are always picked against when Dixie is favored?Division

Who case who they pick. The teams don't care. They are just going to go out
and play. This game is a toss up, whoever wins it won't be a surprise to
I agree that SF/Dixie game is tough to call and will probably come down to the
wire.SF's young QB is good but Dixie's QB is among the
best in the state.Both teams are extremely well coached.I think
SF's skill players have a slight edge, QB excluded.Line play might
favor SF.Tradition is on Dixie's side...can SF's players, who
are the first to make ever to this game from their school, stay focused?I don't see the Jordan-Syracuse game being this close (as the Parry
spread would indicate). Yes, the Titans hold down the Beetdiggers but Jordan
still wins by two touchdowns. Jordan has too much firepower.I also
see Timpview winning by two touchdowns at least, perhaps three. Lloyd might
have passed the extremely talented Kafentzis as the best QB in the state. The
T-Birds seem to be on a mission as well and lastly they seem to have Mountain
Crest's number and that has to eat on Coach Wooten if it doesn't also
wear on his staff and players greatly as well.
Jordan 34, Syracuse 21Timpview 42, Mountain Crest 17Spanish Fork 24, Dixie 21I wish Syracuse would get the upset, but
I think they used all their luck on Bingham. Not that their win was luck, just
amazing defense. I can only see Syracuse winning if they can force 5 turnovers,
like they did against Alta and Bingham.Go Timpview! Love my Alma
Mater! Actually, I went to Jordan my senior year, but didn't like it.
I'm a Thunderbird all the way! But I guess I am happy to see both my Alma
Maters win State in the same year!
Edwards has a Salt Lake and Utah county bias, not a northern bias...he and a lot
of the media does it every year. Not picking the schools from Region 1 or
Region 5 (northern Utah) or the teams from Southern Utah (Dixie). He was way
wrong as Dixie blew out SF. We will see about the other ones.
Well papi seems like edwards was right about 5a
