Dyer Gary, is it just me or is there some sort of confusion here? BYU has
already beaten San Diego twice. So....I think the odds are that BYU can hold
them off. Even without Davies.
hedgehog | 7:09 p.m. March 11, 2011 Yes, the utes don't have any class,
but at least they recognize someone that does.
Jimmer is a great player and I'm glad he broke the "Whinner"s
record-D. Ainge. As a Utah fan,I would say he is not the
greatest bb player to come out of utah. We have many all americansnotably
A .Miller to name one to come out of utah. I think it will be
a good game tonight but San Diego will be the winner they have an all around
team not just one man that is good. Next year Utah will
have a new coach and will be playing BYU again I'm sure
Hedgie (or are you really a ground hog hiding in your burrow trying to predict
the weather). Come out and see your shadow and tell us what it means. You were
the first post on this site but did not see you on the game summary article. Do
you honestly think Dave would go to the u? hoping and dreaming on your part
doesn't make it so. Who do you think has the exposure to recruit? Although you
don't think so, there really are "athletes" with honor that would like
to play for coach Rose and the Y. Go cougars make "Utahans" proud (not
to be mistaken with Utes.)
How is it that the player who took the most shots only got one foul shot? Was
NM not guarding him? I'm thinking the MWC directive to the officials to swallow
their whistles when Jimmer has the ball didn't work this time because he was
hitting his shots IN SPITE of being fouled. Good-bye MWC! And good riddance!
It's only too bad bigotry kept BYU from getting into a conference worth being
in. Can't they just go independent in basketball too?
@bigutefan:"...the aren't even going to the tournament...in 8
days it will be all over."there are some other teams on Utah's
schedule that aren't going to the tournament: San Diego, Oral Roberts, Portland,
Hawaii, Air Force, and CSU.And in 8 days, your season will have been over
for 9 days.Congrats to Jimmer and the gang. The most amazing part
about tonight were the rebounds from Collinsworth and the Steals from Jax; they
created enough possessions for Jimmer to get 37 shots, and thus 50+. Way to go
Jimmer has had a great career at BYU and scored a lot of points. Ainge also
scored a lot of points but he wasn't helped by the 3 point line. Reduce Jimmer's
3 point shots to two each and see where he is in relation to Ainge. I bet Jimmer
is still 200 points behind. Then you will realize just how great Ainge did it
without the 3 point line counting!!! Just a note. Jimmer is still the player of
the last two decades and Ainge was the player of the 80's decade. Go far next
What a game, what a player! It will be a LONG time before any of us see a
performance like given tonight. Totally amazing to see Jimmer go at it and it
seemed so easy. Amazing!Get some rest guys. Tomorrow's a new day!
Congratulations to Coach and team!
What will Trevon Willis say next. I sure amgld he is helping th Cougars. All I
can say is New Mexico got Jimmerd. Look it up in the dictionary. It means
dominated, beaten done in the worse way, Put in a sentence. All the teams in the
Mountain West conference have been jimmered by the national player of the year.
Go Cougars. Another sentenceThe BYU basketball team will
jimmer all of college basketball on the road to the National Championship.
Superb performance tonight Cougars, especially Jimmer. Now if Hedgehog and Chris
B. will do their duty and predict a BYU loss tomorrow (per usual), the Cougars
will then celebrate a conference tournament championship in the evening.
Awesome, enough said.
Wow if there was any doubt at all who national player of the year is it has just
been settled, what an incredible performance. I had a feeling all day that
Jimmer was gonna come up big tonight just not in the form of 52 points. Great
players step it up in big games and Jimmer did that once again tonight just as
he has done all season. Thank You Jimmer!Go Cougars!!!
52 points 26 each for a couple of fans I know
What a ride! Jimmer is the man!
Unforgettable game! As a cougar fan, I really can't believe BYU pulled it off.
We're still soft in the key. Collinsworth really brought some energy inside.On a side note, someone needs to buy the CBS Sportcasters on TV some
glasses. Emery should have been thrown out of the game- really?
Great win, Cougs! Collinsworth shot a great percentage and while a few players
struggled from the field, Jimmer's virtuoso performance made up for it.One more game for the tourney and the chance to say farewell by handing every
other MWC team a loss in the final matchup.Rise and shout!
All right all you BYU fans who were on these boards and doubted our Cougars
against New Mexico - wherefore didst thou doubt?Doubt no more!I predicted we would win tonight and we did!Unbelievable
defense in the second half - I still say we have the potential to be a final
four team. The rebounding is back and we will only get better all around.
Will we ever see another performance like this again? Jimmer just took over,
when nobody else on his team was doing much. The pull away at the end was a
total team effort, but Jimmer put them in that position pretty much by himself.
J I M M E R E D !!!
Congrats, Jimmer was amazing. But if you take a step back and look at the
reality of the situation, byu struggled to beat TCU and then your star player
had to have the best game of his career to beat the 5th place team, who played
without their star the second half. Utah beat New Mexico twice, they are not
even going to the big dance. Fun game to watch, enjoy the week, because in 8
days, it will all be over. Until then, fly high! Shoot lights out Jimmer. (When
is the press conference Chris Hill? It should have been at 6:00 a.m. Friday,
The MAN slammed the house door with 52 points brutha. Nice to beat UNM by 11,
nice, nice, nice !! One more to go, I want some more, I want some
Folks do you realize how very special Jimmer is? Amazing!
Fredette is simply AMAZING!!!
Everything's coming up Roses, Hedgehog, but not for U. What a great show by
Jimmer!!!!! Congratulations to Dave and the boys!
Ok, I'll eat my crow cold, hot, raw, whatever. Love it. Proud to be a BYU fan.
Jimmer is something else.
As expected BYU wins. On to the next one.
BIG Cougar WIN ---- Hedgie is proven wrong again! I love my Cougars.
hedge chris did you like the game?
Hedge, why would U want Rose anyway. You have criticized him and all things
Cougar for ever. In your dreams Hedge, in your dreams.
Why would Rose ever bail for the trainwreck up north? Oh, and
Jimmer has 33 pts. with BYU leading 47-42 at half.New Mexico is
about to be"Jimmered" out of the tournament.
Jimmer is going off.....AGAIN!
Yawn. If anybody is leaving BYU to coach at Utah, it will be Dave RICE, not
Rose. Sorry trolls, you ain't getting Rose. Why would he take a step down? If
he's leaving there are plenty of other programs he could choose from, all a step
up from BYU.And Jimmer Fredette has 33...in the first half.
Somewhere Ute trolls are crying to mom, "More cheesy poofs!"
Jimmer's crazy good. I'm not sure how the team will manage to be anywhere near
as good as it is this year without him around but for now enjoy the ride.
I'm hearing Rose has dinner reservations with Dr. Hill after the defeat tonight.
