I'm hearing Rose has dinner reservations with Dr. Hill after the defeat tonight.

Salt Lake City, UT

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.

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!"

Saint George, UT

Jimmer is going off.....AGAIN!

Cedar City, UT

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.

Hedge, why would U want Rose anyway. You have criticized him and all things Cougar for ever. In your dreams Hedge, in your dreams.

BIG Cougar WIN ---- Hedgie is proven wrong again! I love my Cougars.

Highland, UT

As expected BYU wins. On to the next one.

Alexandria, VA

Ok, I'll eat my crow cold, hot, raw, whatever. Love it. Proud to be a BYU fan. Jimmer is something else.

Fresno, CA

Everything's coming up Roses, Hedgehog, but not for U. What a great show by Jimmer!!!!! Congratulations to Dave and the boys!

Orem, UT

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 more !!

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, March 18th.)

J I M M E R E D !!!

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.

Springville, UT


Herndon, VA

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.

Iowa City, IA

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!
