We know who the real coach of the year is in Ohio. Who votes for this crap. He was by far the best in the Big Ten by recruiting better, coaching better and winning more. Tell me who has done better with less experience comming back in the past year. He does it with restocking by selling his style, our facilities and the local community support to the stars of the future. I hate the early exodus of stars but I love the coach we have who brings them to me to watch and get excited about yearly. Next year will be the same with a new young team learning the game from a proven success who thank god does not care about personal awards.

Are they on drugs picking Dixon? Even before their loss to Butler they did not meet expectations.

Seems like Steve Fisher should have been a top choice but there is no way anyone would let that happen after his issues at Michigan. Given up on Matta ever being considered. They give Ohio State a high ranking, talk all about his recruiting, discount his coaching and doubt his team is as good as the ranking they gave him. All they do is keep winning. Remember, they were picked thrid in the Big Ten preseason.

Best message to all the critics is to just win it all.

Great thing to hear about Sullinger, but Dixon for National COY? He didn't get his team up for the Big East tourney and obviously didn't get them up for the NCAA tourney. What is wrong with this picture? Give the coach who has a team that falls apart in crunch time the National COY?

I have aques for the posters here because I didn't think JaJuan Johnson should have been B10 player of the yr. I feel the honor should come off the winning conf team but then I was told he scored most points. So Osu was punished for playing as a TEAM? Anyway my ques is, like in FB (Heisman jinx), should these indv honors be picked AFTER the champ game because seems we pick the so called "best" and then the "team" LOSES! I agree with Jimmer because his TEAM is still winning BUT COY (should be from team left in tourney)??????

Makes you think Jared was better than JaJuan. I know, being politically correct is more important to BigTen. Freshman or not, Jared is the best player in the BigTen and one of the best in the country
