Jimmer is AMAZING!!!
Let's see, they lose a 6' guard and we're out two 6'9" guys. No
complaints!! Jimmied, plain and simple.
Jimmer just put on one of the most spectacular performances EVER in college
basketball.Congrats Jimmer, and thanks for the memories!Now check off another goal with a MWC Tourney Championship!
Tough break for Gary and New Mexico, but it wouldn't have mattered. This was
Way to go Cougars!!! Good job shutting all the Haters up. Jimmer was amazing
tonight, best College performance I have ever seen!
I in agreement that losing Gary hurt, but wouldn't have mattered in the end.
Fenton did a remarkable job of subbing for him and was highly responsible for
keeping UNM in the game during the 2nd half.
Jimmer was playing out of his mind tonight, he was remarkable! Sad to see Gary
go down, tough player, seems like a great kid.
Congratulations BYU.That was an amazing performance by the national
player of the year!
Amazing!Sad to see Gary go down, still think BYU wins, but what a
bummer for the kid.
BYU should break tradition and retire Jimmer's number THIS YEAR!!!There's no need to wait 5 years.
Two great players on the bench...Davies and Gary. It would have been fun to see
the game with both those players on the court. Congratulations BYU.
Best basketball player to ever play in the state of Utah baby!!!!
It was a great game by Jimmer but he has done it before. Nothing shocking about
it. That is true greatness when you do something like that and it isn't really
all that surprising.
i guess i am a wet blanket but i care more that byu won, getting the unm monkey
of its back, then i care how.Can BYU win the UNLV invitational?
A great player is someone who can carry the whole team when he needs to.Oh, and note to Tre'Von: the best defense is the BEST offense!
@Not So FastUltimately that is all I care about as well. But you've
gotta admit that was alot of fun to watch.
Jimmer is 2001 College Basketball Player of the Year!Any
"Jimmer is 2001 College Basketball Player of the Year!Any
question?"Yes, my question is why the 2001 Player of Year
rather than 2010-2011 Player of the Year?In all seriousness, after
this performance, Jimmer is hands down, no debate the Player of the Year. Not
just a player of the year, THE Player of the Year. BYU shows how legitimate
they can be. Put that old high seeding back on the shelf. BYU is for real!
Now just imagine where they would be if they had not lost their 2 main centers.
Gary is a good player but I have read that BYU won because he got injured and he
was their best defensive player...ummm, didn't Fredette score the 33 in the
first half against Gary? And wasn't BYU ahead at the half? And finally, how
does Fredette only shoot one free throw, can people really be honest and say the
calls are being fair? Just glad his shot was falling. Congrats to BYU and hope
they can do it again tomorrow
A wonderful game to watch. History made for BYU basketball. Needed 52 from
Jimmer because Charles was a little off tonight. However, Collingsworth played
hard and produced. Hard to believe I was watching the same team after the
Wednesday meltdown. Now on to victory.
It's looking to be a BYU/SDSU rematch. This should be fun.
Oh yes. I knew this would be the game; well I hoped really hard. And Jimmer
brought the house down. AMAZING!
52 points! Incredible.Another great thing about the win....Don't believe we'll be hearing from the Chris Bs or hedgies of the world
tonight!Great season.Keep it going coach Rose and the
I agreed with every single comment on this board , because it needs to be
recognized what the POY did 2NIGHT!!!!!!!!!!ThX Jimmer you are one
of a KIND!!!!!!!
Here's to hoping SDSU loses in the semi final...
Jimmered. what will Trevon Willis say next. I think BYU should post his comments
in the Locker room. Jimmer was really in a zone. Heres hoping he is in more of a
zone tomorrow with Jackson and Abou, Kyle and Noah. Great game by all the
players. it sure is a lot of fun watching this team play. We will be talking
about this game until tomoorw when Jimmer goes off for 60.Go
Jimmered. Again. Trevon?
A terrific performance!! However it did take (all) of the Cougar players in
order to win tonight. But it sure didn't hurt that Fredette scored his game
(& career) high 52. Good luck tomorrow in the Championship.By
the way, where are the "Wiki Leaks" tonight? I guess it is too
embarrassing to show up after such ridiculous posts and predictions. I said it earlier this afternoon, the fact that New Mexico had won the last
two games this season only provided special inspiration for the Jimmer-5. And
it is just what the Y needed.Now they will have to pick it back up
tomorrow in order to finish this thing off right - heading into the NCAA
Tournament with a #2 seed. It will be another battle no matter who wins the
UNLV/San Diego State game. Go Cougars!!
Some comments on the game:1. Chris B and Tre Von will have to wait
alittle longer to gloat a cougar defeat.2. Fifty two points and only get
fouled once. Wouldn't that be a record?3. Can the cougs win tommorrow?
Their RPI should but won't get them a one seed.
@TreVon Willis:Dude, You got JIMMERED and you weren't even in the
52 Points...Not even fair.
Totally awesome performance! Bring it on tomorrow!
Jimmer, jackson, Abouo, and friends.... It has been a pleasure to watch you guys
one of the best performances ever, one of the few players i'd pay scapler prices
to watch play. Cougar fans live it up and enjoy this, we'll all be old by the
time it happens again.
As a Utah fan I just want to say WOW! I wish I could have seen this game.
Congrats to Jimmer and BYU and to all you faithful fans. I hope Utah fans will
support BYU in the NCAA games just like BYU fans supported Utah in 1998.Keep your hands inside the car at all times, and ENJOY THE RIDE!
No longer unlv tournament. Neutral sight between BYU and SDSU. Great game Jimmer
and Cougars. And what a great BYU croud tonight!
12 TPSU201636#13WIS161733total number of Field goals
made= 28 (total by both teams)Jimmer=52 points and 22 field goals
made. Now that is a fun comparison.
I love knowing hedge's mom is holding him while he cries himself to sleep
tonight. Way to rock cougs!
Believe.BTW, Did Ainge ever shoot 37 shots in one game?202 fresh.383 soph.491 shots last year.663
shots this year.If you can make it from half-court, keep shooting...
There are a couple of legends from the College Ranks in Utah Merlin
OlsenDanny AingeSteve YoungJim McMahonDick MottaJason BuckAnd now Jimmer FreddetteIm sure I missed a
few more Utah Legends but its late and my mind is already asleep.Jimmers game tonight was simply Legendary
Oh Yea How could I forget Andre MillerKieth Van HornAndrew Bogut
Didn't see the game (3am) but what steams me is 37 shots and 5 different
defenders and he gets ONE FOUL SHOT?Jordon Rules in reverse seems so
wrong. That the refs want the game to be decided on the court rather than the
foul line only allows the defender more courage to foul with impunity. Wrong,
No TV coverage here in Korea for us Soldiers. :-).So, I listened
via ksl.com. God bless, Greg Wrubell. My two fav lines from him today:1. "He's really close to our table right now. I can almost touch
him. I dare not, though. I might get burnt!"2. "Lotta
great shows in Vegas, but none are like the Jimmer Show!"Greg,
I wanna live remote for 15 seconds on one of your pregames and tell you how much
fun you've added to this awesome season! Congrats, Cougars! Jimmer for POY in
2011 and Prez in 2012, I'd take orders from him as my Commander in Chief any
The lack of trips to the free throw line for someone taking that many shots is
shocking. I didn't see the game, but I know enough that there is an issue with
the officiating. That Fredette overcame the problem speak volumes about his
talent, drive and focus.
Of course he scored 52! They weren't even guarding him.... They only fouled in
once! They just let him shoot 37 times without any effort to block his shot, or
put a body on him, or check him on the way to the basket. I don't know what got
into those Lobos? They're usually not nearly as charitable. Maybe they just
wanted to be a part of a record-breaking event. Ridiculous. Bye-bye MWC.
Even I was impressed, cewgs, so props to The Jimmer. The problem, though: he
left it all on the court against UNM. Unfortunately, there won't be anything
left for the championship game.
Remay1 | 6:49 a.m. March 12, 2011 Kaysville, UTOf course he scored
52! They weren't even guarding him.... They only fouled in once!---------Just because none were called, doesn't mean he didn't get
Chris, thanks for guaranteeing a win for the Cougars tonight. Keep it up and we
will be in the NCAA final four for sure.
All I can say is "Thank you UNM" for being gentelman, and gallante
with the Jimmer in the game. They didn't want to foul out this time, but they
must have decided to stand out of his way to avoid the foul calls. Good job,
regardless. Will the Jimmer be 'knighted' now after such gallantry
by UNM? Play awesome, BYU in the SDSU game tonight.
@tjung99Amazing night for BYU and Freddette, but you're too young to
remember enough past players. Ticky Burden (Utah), Wayne Estes (Utah State),
Willie Sojourner (Weber State), Danny Vranes (Utah). The list is long and
distinguished and Jimmer belongs there forever.
@Chris BThanks for the encouragement. Given your track record of
predictions this season I am fully expecting another Cougar win over the Aztecs.
It's understandable why Chris Hill is recruiting Coach Rose so hard. I hope he
has the same success that the ute basketball team had this year.
Phenom! End of story...
Like I may have said. I'm not a big Y. fan, but this was one of the absolute
funnest games to watch in a long while. I hope that the Y. advances FAR into the
NCAA tourney. Go Jimmer and team... And it doesn't hurt that we have
this to take our attention off of a terrible Jazz club right now.
As a pretty good baller recently has stated " the greatest scorer in the
Absolutely heart breaking for Gary, I stood at home when I saw it. I wish him
the best. Fantastic game. Imagine this for a moment. Jimmer scores 10
straight points to start the game. What do you think happened? Think about
Twitter here for a moment. How many messages said "Jimmer's going off"
It would be interesting to know if the viewers of the game skyrocketed. How many
players, coaches and scouts were watching or started to watch because of
messages. Have you noticed how many players and coaches are picking up skills by
watching this once in a lifetime player. How many players have talked about
watching him. If I could withstand the language I would visit a UNLV site, it is
not worth it. It was great to see a standing ovation for Jimmer when he left the
game. It was also great to see the whole stadium stand and applaud for Gary when
he was Hurt. Sportsmanship and honor does transcend the game. I was great to see
the respect between the player before the game. UNM is a class team coached by a
Congrats to Jimmer and the Cougars. The record-breaking performance by Fredette
was fantastic. However, I don't think this win will affect their seeding if they
lose to SDSU tonight (other than the win gives them a chance to beat the
Aztecs).Here's why: had the Y lost to UNM, folks could have said
"well UNM has their number, yet they still only lost to two different
teams." Whereas if they lose tonight, they will have 4 losses against 3
different teams and they will no longer have the entire edge over the Aztecs.
Therefore, regardless if they lose in the MWC semis or finals I've felt they end
up a 3 seed. However, win tonight and they will be at least a 2. Good luck Cougars.
we will be losing Fredette, Emery and a coach or two for next season.
I felt like I was some poor slob in the 1920s listening to the gameon the
radio.Thanks MTN and CBS College Sports!
an interesting stat would be how many points has Jimmer scored during his career
from steals that Jackson Emery made. Jimmer is awesome. Emery is pretty good
. . . and my soul did long to be there.Go get 'em boys!
please boys pass the ball to Jimmer he scored 52 by himself...come on boys be
team players!! Go Cougs!!
