Jimmer, Steve Young Star in Funny BYU Cougars Video

jimmer byu

The video that follows after the jump includes an all-star team of BYU legends: Steve Young, Jimmer Fredette, Lavell Edwards etc talking about being a real cougar; becoming a real cougar. On one level the video is cutesy innocent funny- in the way they utilized the CGI cougar.

But another, more sexually depraved level this video is very funny. Because if you search for the word “cougar” these days, in any search medium, the first few entries you’ll find are related to the cougar of Demi Moore variety.

Or low-rent wannabe versions of Demi Moore.

Jimmer’s Fiance Whitney Wonnacott Wins National Cheerleader Poll (Photos)

Jimmer mania has hit the NBA. Jimmer Fredette had 6 points in 25 minutes in his pro debut, a 100-91 win over the L.A. Lakers. He had 10 points on 4-10 shooting in the next game, as his Sacramento Kings lost to Portland.

It’s exciting times for his woman now as well.

For a few years now, Athlon has held a “Sideline Spirit” contest, which chooses a handful of cheerleaders from all across the nation, and people vote to see which school has the most “spirit.” And you vote based on the photo portfolios you see online, so “spirit” translates from marketing/PR corporatespeak into the English “hot/popular.”

The most popular college basketball and college football cheerleader in the entire nation for 2011 is Whitney Wonnacott from BYU.

If I could paraphrase Destiny’s Child circa 2001, “all the programs who INDEPENDENT, throw your hands up at me. All the A.D.s making money throw your hands up at me.” Or perhaps you recall Bill Pullman’s very rousing “Today, is our independence day!” speech from the 1996 blockbuster film.

That’s the spirit in Provo, Utah right now. They got a sweetheart TV deal from ESPN, and centralized their broadcasting rights back to the LDS Church. And that’s exactly why they could leave the MWC to go independent in the first place- their worldwide Mormon audience is a built-in fan base. (Mendenhall has said so himself) Exactly like Notre Dame and the Catholics.

Their independent schedule is pretty tough in the early going, whoops I almost said “non-conference” there. But they finished strong last year and have lots to build on. [Read more…]

You knew it wouldn’t be long until this happened. Pics of the woman who…well if Helen of Troy had the face that launched a 1,000 ships, then Brandon Davies’ girlfriend has the beauty that possibly cost a mid-major college basketball program a trip to the Final Four.

As we all know, BYU- the #3 team in the country has dismissed starting forward Brandon Davies, the team’s leading rebounder, for the rest of the season. His infraction is a violation of the school’s honor code.

Word is the violation is impregnating his girlfriend. Rumors on Twitter state she’s pregnant, but it’s been confirmed that having sex was the “offense.” Pregnancy has not been confirmed as of yet.

So who is she? A volleyball player for Arizona State actually.
