This story notes that Pullen is receving a lot of respect around the nation in the preseason. Jacob's name appeared on 53 of a potential 65 ballots. Interestingly, this is one of the few articles that I've seen note his tremendous performance against the BYU Cougars in the NCAA tournament last year. While the game against the Xavier Bulldogs was more exciting, and Jacob's role in that game more conspicuous, holding Jimmer Fredette to 4 of 13 shooting, while scoring 34 points of his own was Jake's masterpiece, and this story notes that. This is just another reason for Cats fans to be very excited about the upcoming season. So, what is your level of confidence about the upcoming season?
