You're wrong. Never mistrust the ability of the haters to know who has talent and who doesn't.

The coaches are blind and stupid, and they were probably paid off out of the Calhoun slush fund.

I guess that the full title should be " Big East Defensive Player of the Year -(when he isn't playing Pitt)".

If you're a seven-footer, and you can't swat those tiny orange orbs into the 22nd row, then you've got a problem.

He can do that.

He just needs to put some meat on those bones and fill out those chicken legs of his.

You mean the fact that he shut down Blair the way Blair shut down Hasheem in the first game? Blair was amazing in the first game and you can't argue that Hasheem's defense didn't make a difference in the second.

Sorry but Blair's 1st game was far better than Thabeets 2nd game. Did nothing in the 2nd half except suck wind. When Blair got the ball this last game Thabeet had help. He can't shut down a physical player by himself.
Not one 1st place vote for UConn in this latest poll? Even Memphis and Louisville got a couple 1st place votes. As much as I can't stand UConn they're better than both Memphis and Louisville.
