    All you BYU fans in Utah better be packing the Marriott Center the rest of the year. Those of us out here in the outskirts need you to represent us. Jimmer is doing his part. The fans need to do their part and show up!!

    Jimmer is fantastic. Fun to watch. True talent that in my opinion, will translate nicely to the pro game. When you are a pure shooter, other weaknesses become overshadowed - and I don't think he has many weaknesses.

    Fredette has the advantage of the 3-pointer. Ainge had the advantage of starting his Freshman year.

    BYU had a very mediocre team the year before Ainge arrived and no outstanding team leaders.

    BYU was led by Cummard and Plaisted when Jimmer arrived.

    If Jimmer is able to break Ainge's record, even with the advantage of the 3-pointer, it'll still be an outstanding accomplishment.

    Nice nice football off season, Thanks Jimmer.

    & yet the funny thing is that Jimmer probably won't even win the conference player of the week award this week (or else it will probably be shared).

    The MWC has become a joke- the laughing stock of the nation. Pretty sad when earlier this season they won't show a BYU game so they can play a women's game instead and now ESPN and other writers have to search near and far to find anything about Jimmer.

    Here's to the WCC in the future- good riddance MWC.

    From Wikipedia:
    The NCAA's Southern Conference became the first collegiate conference to use the three-point rule, adopting a 22-foot (6.7 m) line in 1980. The first collegiate team to score a three-pointer was Western Carolina University. Over the following five years, NCAA conferences differed in their use of the rule and the distance they required for a three-point shot. The NCAA adopted the 19-foot, 9-inch line nationally in 1986. In 2007, the NCAA lengthened the men's three point distance to 20 feet 9 inches, with the rule coming into effect at the beginning of the 200809 season.

    I was looking at the overall points list and wondering when 3 point shots were started being used in NCAA play? Anyone know? Just curious.

    That being said, watching Jimmer play is AMAZING. I wish I could catch more games!

    Jimmer man crushes continue!

    And the jealousy of "lovers scorned" continues to fester!

    THIS IS WHY........

    BYU has gone Independent.


    With the Mtn. 8 million homes...

    ESPN 100 million

    BYU-tv 60 million (and growing)

    If a player is only seen on the Mtn. and nobody is there to watch, is he really there?

    Independence & WCC can't come fast enough.

    WCC has a contract with ESPN, if BYU was with them this year, Jimmer would have a National game every week.

    And that is not hyperbole.

    I am man enough to admit it... I have a man crush on Jimmer.

    Being at the game on Tuesday night made me realize how good we have it right now. Jimmer has been awesome his entire career and its all coming to an end way too fast.

    It also stinks that we have to wait until Tuesday to see another game. This is too much fun.

    Go Cougs!!! Its JIMMER-TIME!!!

    Good to know that NBA scouts were in the building. Jimmer should have quite a serviceable career wherever he ends up as an instant offensive spark like Korver or Redick.

    However last night I had a nightmare that he was drafted by the Lakers... lets just hope Ainge can get him to Boston!

    I think any Fan that has watched Jimmer over the last three 1/2 years knows how special of a player he is. It is nice to see that now the entire nation is getting introduced to the Jimmer show. Its Jimmers world we just live in it. You got Jimmered!

    I saw about 20 minutes of Jimmer time on national TV such as Pardon the Interruption, ESPN #1 play of the day, exclusive interviews with Scott...etc...

    More to come baby!

    Jimmer is an MVP to the nation, even if the mwc doesn't think so.

    Now about that game, thanks to boYlen, it's well deserved.

    Jimmer is a once in a generation player. BYU fans should being enjoying every minute of the Jimmer Show because they may not see another BYU player this exciting for another 30 years!

    That shot of Jimmer lining up that half-court buzzer beater will go into the BYU Basketball Hall of Fame.
