Congratulations! Imagine if he didn't take one third of the plays off! He would be first team, if he worked hard on every play.
If he fails to do so we'll get eaten up. Calhoun said, " this is the time when legends are made."
I know Walker, and Robinson, are ready, I just wonder about Thabeet, and Price. They seem to become invisible at times.
I hope A.J. is sick of hearing about Carolina's point guard!
GO HUSKIE'S!!

I dont worry about A.J at all. Whenever we need a big play or a clutch shot, he delivers. Congrats to Thabeet..I feel very good about the Michigan St game. They are not as good as UConn. UConn vs UNC final is going to be great!

doesn't sound like a lottery lock to me. it says here that the big man should stay one more year and lock up that first team/player of the year for the 09-10 season. that guarantees him a low lottery position (and Uconn another outstanding year)-- assuming the NCAA doesn't impose the death penalty. if they do i say "JUMP SHIP" tall man().

If he is a lottery pick then the NBA has some weak players coming in. Sorry but I am a Uconn fan and just like to tell it like it is. Also if the jerk (coach) packs it in maybe the next coach will bring in players that are not criminals and maybe it will be fun to root for them again.

You're an idiot, I like to tell it like it is too. He's 7'3" with greater basketball skills than Mutumbo, he's a top 3 lottery pick. That jerk coach has done more for the state, university and the program than was done combined by his predecessors. BTW, you're no fan.

What a shame you have to put up with "that jerk coach" who has won 800+ games and taken his team to the Final Four 3 times in ten years.

What a sad predicament for you: hate a successful coach and team or cheer for a NIT team.

I suspect that your "players that are not criminals" is code for "not black." Is that it? You want white players to root for?

Congrats Hash, not what you deserved (first team for sure). The vote was 2 weeks to soon. Griffin didn't win the Natl Championship this year. Come to think of it neither did Hansborough! YOU WILL, and it's because you are a TEAM player, best of luck in the PROS, and keep your eye on the prize, we're pullin' for you, Coach, and the boys! GO HUSKIES!!!
