Congratulations Jimmer!!! Just the first of many more POY honors!
The first of what will be many such accolades. Congrats to Jimmer,
from a die-hard ute!
What a great season for the Jimmer, I see Yahoo and Fox took the cheap way out
with Nolan Smith of Duke. Jimmer averaged 6 more points a game than Smith and
did it with double and triple teams.
Not bad for a gimmick player huh hedgehog.....
Yahoo and Fox didn't have to address for their reason not picking Jimmer.
Congrat to Jimmer on CBS award.
"Jimmer averaged 6 more points a game than Smith and did it with double and
triple teams."Jutintime,Don't forget jimer also
took 5x as many shots. Shooting a red hot 30% ... ouch.This
"gimmick" style won't translate in the NBA. And really, What GM is
going to put his job on the line "hoping" jimer can change what he is.
Yahoo! is a Bay Area company. Probably still mad about Prop 8.
Nice try hedger FGP, 3PP, FTPJimmer 27.9, .455%,
404%, 896% Smith 21.9, .470%, 362%, 819%Your basketball IQ is
the only Gimmick. this Gimmick has parlayed his performance into
National player of the year.
I keep hearing how everyone hates BYU. If that is the case, how does this
happen? How does James get all the great pub this season if everyone hates BYU?
How does BYU get all the positive reaction around the country for sticking to
it's honor code if everyone hates BYU?Is there any way the whole
persecution complex, everyone hates BYU attitude can be put to rest? Nobody is
out to get you, Cougar fan. Look at all this national love you are getting!
What more do you want?Although we Ute fans will continue to look for
every opportunity to laugh at you. Bronco needs a new motto for 2011 for us to
pile on! We need some new material.
That's OK Fox Network. I switched to CNN months ago.
When Fox and Yahoo are giving the award to Duke's 3rd best player (behind
Singler and Irving), you know it is just to push headlines, and go against the
MenaceToSociety, it's Ute fans that insist BYU is the most hated team in
America. Thanks for acknowledging though that the impiracle evidence is
mounting, and it states otherwise.
empirical evidence not impiracle....come on man!Nolan Smith had a
great year too, but Jimmer is a better player. Thats just my opinion. Yahoo and
Fox are allowed to have theirs too. The Naismith award is the one that matters
What is wrong with Yahoo and Fox, is it just cause Nolan Smith is in the ACC and
Jimmer that MWC? That is ridiculous that Yahoo and Fox didn't pick Jimmer as
POY, makes no sense.Congrats to Jimmer though on CBS, he deserves
it. CBS actually knows what they are doing.
No argument from me. Impressive kid, and by the way "menace", it was
an SI article that originally called the Cougs "The most hated team in
America." We just agreed with them. That still doesn't take away his
skills. As far as the next level, who knows? I've seen all-americans bust in the
pros and nobodies do well. It all depends on the team and system he's drafted
into. Even as a Ute fan, I hope he does well. From all accounts, he's a good
kid. I can respect his abilities and still hate his team.
The are links on PlanetBYU to vote for Jimmer for a couple of awards including
the Bob Cousy Award, which is given to the top collegiate point guard by the
Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
Thank you for looking up the real numbers JustintimeY. I was just thinking about
it when I saw your post.hedge; Did you get the attention you were
after?Your obsession is still showing. Is that a good thing for you?
Yea Jimmer! Congratulations and thank you for all the fun games so far and the
fun ones we have yet to watch!
Congratulations Jimmer!You're won of the most exciting basketball
players to come along in a generation. Thanks for the memories and good luck in
It's always amazing when any big media team doesn't get the POY honors. Most of
these outlets should just keep the Duke name on their trophy from year-to-year.
How hard is it to get honors when you are on the number 1 team?
Congrats to Jimmer. The vote this year will be very close. Hopefully he can win
it.@Menacetosociety:Have you found laughing at Cougar
fans to be the best way to allieviate the pain of your 4th losing season in 6
hedgehog I've got to disagree, Jimmer will sell tickets and that makes him
draftable. Once he's in the league his range will still be deep but he'll
become a better shooter %wise and will fit in great with the right NBA team.I really think if Coach Rose asked Jimmer to become a passer because it would
make the team better he would do it immediately.I'm no Cougar, but you've
got to hand it to Jimmer for what he's accomplished and to Coach Rose for having
the guts to give Jimmer a green light from anywhere. Regardless of Jimmer's
shooting % he's made his teammates better and his team as a result.
Nice job, Jimmer! You deserve the congratulations for being an incredible force
for good. Well done!
Congrats to him on a great season. He'll be fine in the NBA. Plus, a good effort
in the NCAA tourney always seems to help one's draft stock. I could see him
going in the lottery. Many folks already consider this a weaker draft year, and
good shooters are always welcome in the NBA. Jimmer certainly has skill sets and
a personality that will be favored by many NBA owners.I've seen
Nolan Smith and the Dukies play a bit on TV. Based on what I've seen of him and
Jimmer, in my opinion, Fredette is the better player and more worthy of the POY.
@H-hog:You wouldn't want Mr. Fredette on your team, would you. Oh,
no, not a gimmick player like him.With your sports IQ, which NBA GM
are you consulting for??
So you lose two of your last three games. Don't even win your conference. Lay
an egg in your final game at UNC and still win the POY award (Nolan Smith). Jimmer's team lays claim to the MWC title (three out of four years) and
wins college basketball's scoring title, doing so with two to three opposing
players being ran at him constantly. He breaks his school's all time scoring
record, leading his MWC team to a #3 national ranking and finishes as a
runner-up.Someone ought to convince the rest of the world that the
right thing to do isn't always the most popular.
You gotta admire Hedgie...As the rest of the haters have dropped
along the way, or swung to appreciate Jimmer, he continues with the senseless
babble, no matter what kind of nutjob he sounds like..Props navalvet
-- you do have stamina.
Way to go Jimmer, Congrats on well deserved POY honors! I look forward to seeing
more opponents get Jimmered in the upcoming tournaments.
Duke will always get this kind of treatment. They have been a power for so long
and have a huge following. I really like coach K and the way he presents himself
and players. Great going Jimmer, I think you are the POY, although it hasn't
changed the way you play. I see you do what is needed when needed to make your
team better. Hegie, I see you are absence since your misinformation you posted
earlier. I have tracked the Y articles and see you are on all but two, Jimmer's
spirituality and one other. Fun to check the articles and see your posts, I find
them entertaining and consistant. Go Cougars and Aggies.
"Don't forget jimer also took 5x as many shots. Shooting a red hot 30% ...
ouch.This "gimmick" style won't translate in the NBA. And
really, What GM is going to put his job on the line "hoping" jimer can
change what he is."hedgie the wedgie,I probably
should not even respond to you, especially since others have already replied to
your absurd comment, but I had a little to add. Jimmer's points/field goal
attempted was 1.42 whereas Nolan's was 1.36. This is in addition to the fact
that their field goal percentage was actually quite close and Jimmer's 3 point
percentage was quite a bit better. I am not saying Nolan is bad (he had more
assists and rebounds than Jimmer, for example), and I agree that he deserves
consideration for player of the year. But your claims about Jimmer are the most
ridiculous claims you have ever made... and that is saying a lot. Personally, I
think Jimmer deserves the Player of the Year over Smith.
Congratulations Jimmer! Well deserved and I hope more honors come your way.
Excellent. I have to say I really like watching Jimmer play. He is a difference
maker for his team like none other. And when he does that crossover and shoot,
man is that exciting. BYU does not have the dominant inside game most of these
other guards are surrounded by and so his abilities are that much more critical.
He can work under pressure when all of the pressure is on him. And there is not
a better or nicer person in the mix. The fact that Jimmer has been selected as
POY will help many young kids want to emulate him. Wouldn't it be great if he
caused a trend toward fewer tattoos in basketball? It won't happen but it is a
nice thought. Go Jimmer. Congratulations.
Santa called and was wondering if he could change his name to Jimmer. Jimmer
Clause ...... Go Cougs!!!!!
Hedgie may want to back to worshipping at the altar of the pac 10.2; live it up
while he can until the great lie is exposed to the world.
Man, after justintime posted real stats, hedgie disappeared. Nice work. Very
cool that Jimmer got this award. It was well deserved.
Jimmered would get owned if he played in the ACC or Big East
