    Love the accolades for an amazing player and good person. Let's hope BYU's two tourney appearances help further validate all the attention.

    Go Cougs!

    JIMMER !!! Hey return to that peaceful place, that zone you were in for the first half of the year. Keep it simple, be intense yet relaxed. Don't let the ball go inside, just steal it! :) Good Luck!

    With two more wins to go, BYU will have back to back thirty victories per year. Are there many teams who have accomplished that?

    It's great to see Jimmer being recognized for an outstanding year. He's one of the most entertaining players of this generation.

    Kudos Jimmer!!...CBS Sports, SI and others. Fox Sports, on the other hand, picked Nolan Smith of Duke for their POY. What if they end up being the only major sports organization not to have gone with Jimmer? Then we can call Fox and tell them - "You've been Jimmered!!"

    Jimmer is the POY.
    The Sun is hot.
    The national debt is big.
    The Titanic hit an iceberg.

    Let's see how many of the other sports organizations get it right and recognize the obvious.

    I noticed a couple of links on PlanetBYU to vote Jimmer for POY - Bob Cousy and one other award.

    "the only logical choice for this award"

    Congratulations Jimmer! You earned it!

    Pat Forde at ESPN has also declared Jimmer his NPOY. He deserves it.
