I am a die hard Ute fan, but I will admit Jimmer mania is a cool thing! Keep firing Jimmer!

What a good kid. Utah fan here but it is super easy to cheer for Jimmer. Reminds me so much of Steph Curry. Why dont the jazz take a chance on Jimmer if he is still available in the first round? The jazz are lacking a three point shooter that can penetrate and thats just what he is. Jimmer hits 30 footers with a hand in his face, can you imagine the open shots Deron williams could get him. I mean he doesnt have the skill of Hayward, but who does? MJ?

I am not a fan of Jim Rome. I have listened in the past and I can see littel value in his show. He does have a great guest line-up and is usually very respectful of them. If someone gets invited to his show you know they are very famous or very popular nationally. This speaks well for JF. I love to see him remaining humble especially when there are so many total jerks like Terrell Owens and LeBron James out there that think they are gods.
Jimmer is truly a class act and so are the fans of all the schools who recognize and support him.

Another Ute Jimmer fan here. He is a class-act. I met him at the Weber vs. BYU game. I hassled him the whole time, but at the end, I asked for his autograph. He joked with me about all the guff I gave him, but then gave it to me and we chatted for a few minutes. He is a great kid, and has a ton of potential, not only in basketball but in life as well.

I would love to see byu get a #3 seed and lose to a #14 in the tournament. Very possible.

Did you hear at the end of the interview Jimmer say that hopefully his brother will be more successful than he is. This is class at its highest level.

Chrissy - If you're going to make your hateful comments, at least try to figure out the topic of the article. Since you obviously couldn't figure this one out, the article was about Jimmer's interview on the Jim Rome show and not about BYU seeding or possible success or lack thereof in the tournament. Seriously, get a clue!

I'll be the first BYU fan to post.

BYU=National Presence.
utah=regional joke.

Go Jimmer
Go Y

Great player, great recognition, great comments, great overall support from the homies and from the rivals.

Chris B and Y4LYFE need to start their own comment board for the pathetic few who thrive childish partisanship.

Jimmer is just fun to watch when he is playing.

I don't remember anyone this fun to watch since Magic Johnson
