    I laughed out-loud when I saw this, thanks to whoever did it for bringing some humor to our area.

    I think it's funny and clever as did the national press. Lighten up. Sheesh.

    Uh, I believe everyone who condemned the stunt has done something as silly and adolescent as this in there college days....

    Lighten up crowd.

    Lighten up there old-timer. It's just a bit of harmless fun. Certainly alot better than spray-painting graffiti.

    I see nothing wrong with ridiculing a mass murderer who killed thousands of innocent people.

    I don't think that Jimmer would appreciate his name associated with anyone's violent death.

    Jimmer may be from NY, and might have known some of those who died, but still.

    No matter how much Bin Laden deserved it... It lacks any form of taste, don't ya think?

    And how many plastic cups will now be floating around as trash? This is bad tradition not only for making statements but for the missionary homecomings. Personally I don't like this as a method of expression even in a misguided patriotic attempt.

    I think, regarding Jimmer's draft status, that many teams really do want him, but are playing him down in hopes that he's still there when their number comes up.

    Any team that picks Kemba over Jimmer will later rue that day. Kemba isn't big or strong enough to be that effective. He's quick, but so are many PGs in the NBA who can't take their teams very far.

    Only the poeple who haven't seen all of Jimmer's games doubt his NBA ability. Those who have (without rose-colored glasses), know he'll be any team's franchise man.

    Jimmer CAN play defense as well as 70% of current NBA PGs. VERY FEW PGs can stay in front of fast/quick PGs. Maybe none?

    Jimmer's cross-over makes D-Will's cross-over look high-schoolish.

    Can't wait for the draft to see where he goes. Sure hope the Jazz pick him.

    Your name will be had for both good and bad...

    Seems I've heard something like this before. (heh)

    What's disgraceful is the fact that people are taking things so seriously. A woman reported on a new website today that she doesn't want the U.S. to release photos of Bin Laden's death because of possible repercussions by terrorists. Really? Let's live our lives in fear? No, Bin Laden deserves nothing from us. We respected his religion in the burial at sea, but aside from that, he had taken away all reason for us to give him any respect. If someone wants to make the joke that he got "Jimmered" I say, good on ya. If anyone else wants to make funny jokes about him, bring 'em and I'll laugh.

    Impossible, long range, bullet to the bullseye.....sounds like a jimmer moment to me!

    A violent death of a mass murdering madman associated with Jimmer, classy. I am sure he will love it.

    You really can't take Bleacher Report seriously. Anyone can write for them. Anyone. Right now I expect Jimmer where everyone else is expecting him to go somewhere between 10-15.

    I don't put any weight into the blog report that Jimmer's stock value is going down as is mentioned in this article. If anything his value is on the rise due to things like the Jimmer-fying of the overpass.

    even though higher principle alludes to the fact that we, as americans, should be graceful in victory, i actually chuckled a bit.

    Just like your perspective that one fan who puts something up accounts for all BYU fans?

    It's like the Utah fan who had a sign at the Sugar Bowl that read "Utah, the real #1."

    Perspective. It doesn't make all Utah fans illiterate that they don't know how to read the polls, just that one.

    "byu fans simply can't put things into prespective"

    says the troll who thinks life consists of getting Mom to make Mac n cheese every day to feed her BYU obesession.

    proves once again that byu fans simply can't put things into prespective.
