That's a big honor... congratulations Jimmer and BYU!

The Jimmer
Salt Lake City, UT

For once, Pres. Obama knows what he's talking about.

Palo Alto, CA

Well-deserved accolades for a great young man.

If anybody has earned a couple of wins in the Big Dance, it's Jimmer.

Good luck tomorrow Jimmer and the rest of the Cougars!

Well deserved, although deeply concerning.

The infamous SI Cover Jinx could well spell doom for the limping to the finish line Cougs. Hopefully not. Go Cougs!

Sorry Mitt but we just swung Obama's way.

Everyone barack has picked ends up flat on their face. Sorry, Jimmer you just been baracked. If barack really care he would take back his picks. Every team ends up losing when he chooses them.

Gala Apples
Nashville, TN

That's cool for Jimmer. But too bad Sports Illustrated is garbage. You know what I'm talking about.

That is cool. I'm not a BYU fan, but really you couldn't choose a better person to be a representative for any university. He is a nice, well spoken kid. Great for him to be the face of BYU.

Logan, UT

I am happy for Jimmer, but honestly who picked that pose? It looks like he practicing skipping with a basketball. And what a game face, really intimidating stuff.

Longmont, CO

I thought there was a big SI cover page curse, combine that with being jinxed by the President and wow. Hopefully he can Jimmer the curse.

Salt Lake City, UT

Best matchup on Thursday: The Jinx vs. Jimmer.

Provo, UT

Decades from now we'll be saying "Win one for the Jimmer". Now its just, "Jimmer, win!"

Saratoga Springs, UT

When does this issue come out?


who was the last Utah based college hoops player to be on the cover of SI? Was is Wayne Estes or has someone else been there? Ainge maybe or Bogut.

Here in Denver for the game a couple of days early. Local sports radio has been comparing Jimmer to Tim Tebow. Both good Christian men who are wonderful representatives of all that is good with college athletics. The only difference one host noted is that Tebow has the trophies-while Jimmer doesn't.....yet anyway.

Lehi, UT

As a VERY non-BYU fan I offer my congratulations to Jimmer and the Cougs (not that I'll be rooting FOR them, but for once I may not be rooting AGAINST them.) However, I have to go with Waylon77 and ask who picked that pose? It's ridiculous! Why couldn't they put a good un-staged action shot of him or something?

Cedar Hills, UT

Jimmer deserves all the recognition nationally and then some.. BYU doesn't.

Ann Arbor, MI


Iowa City, IA

I have no problem with the pose. It's a Pistol Pete fun shot. Far too often the players on covers try to appear super tough. Why so serious?

They ain't Roman gladiators.

Congrats on the cover.

Jimmer is change Cougar fans can believe in....

Salt Lake City, UT

Way to go Jimmie.. Now he just to get the Cover of the Rolling Stone.
