THE JIMMER is pleased; the Rickster is not. My day is made.

Ah.. another National Player of the year award in basketball to go with a Heisman and a National Championship Trophy in football. Now trolls....just get up and make the 40 minute drive down to Provo and you can see what one of those things looks like for yourself.

Provo, UT

Here's a standing ovation to you Jimmer! Well deserved, congratulations!

As a U fan and not a Y fan, it has been fun to read about BYU basketball this season, the only games I watched were the tournament games and Fredette was fun to watch even when they lost that last game, he is a wildcard thats for sure, he will do well at the next level. Good for him, his hard work has paid off.....

Salt Lake City, UT

Looks like BYU may have to add a Jimmer wing to the BYU Hall of Fame.

Congrats Jimmer!

Congrats Jimmer, well deserved. Good luck in the NBA and in all aspects of your life.


Way to go Jimmer! This is so well deserved...you are a superb role model of hard work, persistance, and determination. Thanks for the best season!!

Congratulations, Jimmer! Way to go Cougars! It just doesn't get any better than this! May Jimmertime last for many years to come!

Well deserved and a very good choice in spite of the hype Kemba Walker was recently receiving. It shows that the voters looked at the entire season and what the player did for the team. Congratulations Jimmer. I hope you do well in the NBA.

Great prestige for this fine young man. With all the accolades Jimmer has received I hope he will handle it with the same dignity as he has on the court. If the Jazz don't draft him now, they will be missing an opportunity that won't come their way again. The best to the Jimmer and may he enjoy his after school journey which is starting.

Cedar Hills, UT

Congradulations!!!! to you Jimmer, and the rest of your team.

Draper, UT

Rick Reilly must be beside himself. It will be interesting to see what he has to say about this tomorrow. If he's a man, he'll eat crow for his earlier article dissing Fredette. If he isn't...well...he's Rick Reilly.

What Yeah

The Year of the Jimmer continues.

Congrats to the Cougars this year and Jimmer's latest award! Just tuck that next to Detmer's Heisman. Congratulations on all the hard work and determination. I don't think I'll ever see another player guarded like Jimmer was the second half of the year. At least the emergency room had a lot of business this year with busted ankles and swallowed whistles.

Rick Reilly Who?

Man this is a great year to be a BYU Cougar fan.

Jimmermania lives on and now we have a great football season with some great opponents to look forward to.

Thanks to the players, coaches and admins for making it a great year.

Go Cougars!
