Kevin Durant Loves Jimmer Fredette
With no disrespect towards Kemba Walker, the best scoring guard in college basketball’s Q-rating is soaring to “off-the-charts” levels as more and more people gain exposure of Jimmer Fredette’s sweet-shooting ways. Fredette, while leading his BYU Cougars — currently 20-1 thanks the beatdown of San Diego State — is taking the nation by storm
, albeit, it’s slow-burning one.
Some of us knew about him before this season, but I digress.
Leading the way for the Cougars against previously-undefeated San Diego State was, of course, Fredette, who scored 43 points, thanks to an efficient 14-24 from the field, including 5-8 from behind the arc. Oh, and he was 10-11 from the free throw line, emphasizing just how good a shooter he really is. If that doesn’t do the trick, perhaps his NCAA-leading 27.4 points per game average will.

It’s about that time, so I’m leaving this post here for the first group of Thursday games, including BYU stud, Jimmer Fredette. BYU plays Florida (I’m picking BYU) and Old Dominion plays Notre Dame (feeling ODU here). This post will be a mish-mash of thoughts and observations from the initial session.

Bob Stoops isn’t even sure
We are nearing the midway point for the college football season, schedule-wise, anyway, and in light of the SEC/Big 12 article
at Fox Sports, questions about who has the best team remain. Sure, the cream has started rising to the top as teams like Oklahoma, Missouri, Penn State, LSU, Alabama and Texas stand out; but forgetting about teams like Texas Tech, BYU, and the one-loss gang of Florida, LSU, USC and Ohio State is foolish.
In fact, any of the 12 teams I just mentioned could make the BCS Championship game.
With that in mind, who is the best team in the land — at this point of the season, anyway? The national rankings have the top five as follows:

Washington Huskies coach Ty Willingham was asked about his thoughts on the Washington/BYU ending that is the currently haunting college football. Surprisingly, Willingham was very generous
with his praise for the Pac-10 officiating crew and the now-famous call against his quarterback, Jake Locker that directly effected the outcome of the game.
And by “very generous with his praise,” I mean he was pretty disgusted in the whole matter.
