    No respect! Before the game from three of the four "color analysis guru's " for CBS College Sports. They picked SDSU to win this game.

    They scoffed at Jimmer's accomplishments to date and wrote it off and speculated that it has only been possible against the weak opposition from the Mountain West Conference and other easy pre-conference games.

    They are eating large mouth full's of Crow today. Nothing like ripping off 43 points to shut down the non-believers.

    The Jimmer squad took on nationally ranked # 4 SDSU and dismissed them without further argument. Next up NM in the PIT, another Big show down. Lets keep playing and winning and shutting down the national press " Guru's " go Cougars !

    You want proof? On an anonymous message board? Come on, get real! He makes trollish comments, might be a troll. Can any of us really know anything true about any of us posting here? "I want proof or I refuse to believe!" Good luck with that in the blogoshpere, my man!

    It's good to see JFU getting a lot of attention. It's the most popular university in the nation right now!

    Ted H., You'd have to send me links/proof where you can prove Cosmo's Cousin is a "yewt" troll. I know several Ute posters in thees forums who call him a "tds" troll. The posts I have seen from him have been snarky and delusional---but many true Y fans (and Ute fans) can be that way. He has ALWAYS painted the Utes bad.

    Proof man. Otherwise he may be one of your own.

    ---Impressive showing by the BYU Jimmers. As a fan of a team that has been previously Jimmered, I know what he can do to the opposing defense. His NBA stock is rising very high...probably too high for the Jazz---unless they keep up that losing streak.

    Congrats by winning this one. Plenty of games left.

    ---Max-was-right, I'm doubting you actually have Ute friends but thanks for the reminder.

    ---Question: is there going to be another "biggest game of the year" when the two meet again in San Diego on Feb 26th. Or a third "biggest game of the year" when they potentially meet in the MWC tourney?

    Just wondering.

    If BYU manages to win out, including their remainig "biggest games of the year" against SDSU you'd think they would be awarded with at least a two seed. When was the last time a team from a non-power conference got a 1?

    Let me help you out pal - cosmo's cousin in a yewt troll.

    You're essentially arguing with a rock when you try and debate him.

    Best stop now or everyone will see you arguing with a rock

    Unfortunately, most of this attention will leave when Jimmer leaves.
    By the way, BYU basketball will not be independent next year either. So the comment "Only the small-time teams need to rely upon a conference to thrive" is kind of off base if you are inferring that BYU is not a small time team and therefore doesn't need a conference.

    That my ute friends is how you play in the biggest game of the year...Not a 47-7 beatdown like the other super team played.

    All of the national media BYU is getting is more proof that independence will work out tremendously for the Cougars. It doesn't matter if the Blue is in a conference or not -- we're going to get national attention and recognition and a lot of it!

    There's been Internet chatter about the Big 12 looking at inviting San Diego State. I think this is true for one reason.

    I think the Big 12 contacted BYU and the Blue told them a big no because it's clear independence is going to work out much better in the long run. We don't need a conference.

    Only the small-time teams need to rely upon a conference to thrive.
