    Making stuff up again, huh PJ?

    I share some of the same concerns as plyxply. I really, really hope that Fredette and the Cougs will play as team to WIN one game at a time, NOT to showcase Fredette. Every NBA scout and team already know he can shoot lights out and drive to the hoop. What they want to see is if he can see the open man and play defense. If he can improve in these things, his stock will go up. May the rest of the team play like they want to contribute, not just spectate.

    Can't wait to see Jackson Emery's and Hartsock's(who is he again?) prediction of a undefeated season come to fruition with a national championship. Should be fun!

    he will be challenged to actually pass the ball to his open teammates....if he does that he'll live up to the hype and the Cougars will dominate, otherwise he'll be a great individual player with disgruntled teammates.

    This was just a filler article. I don't think Jimmer is going to be challenged all that much this year. TJ has prepared him well (he used to take him to prisons to practice!!).
    I look for a dominating year that goes deep into April.

    Jimmer will be a great MWC player.

    This is a very good recognition for Jimmer, and both he and coach Rose understand what it means--NOW, do the rest of the team understand?? Everyone of the players, along side Jimmer must play as if they are the AP choice. If all play with swagger and a chip on their shoulder, the entire season, and WANT to win the games, then it can happen. It is a behavior that they must show--aggressively--if necesary, to win games.
