    Default More Love for Nick Johnson....or is it lack of love?

    Good write up where Nick stands in comparison to other recent "best players" on the best team in the nation in relation to Wooden Award recognition

    Best player on the best team is a nice theory, but that's a lot of words for what is really a meaningless analysis. NJ won't win because Doug McDermott is going bananas on the rest of the country. NJ guts out the big baskets and has 22 in the Cats' win over Utah. Two nights later, McDermott goes for 39 including the game-winning 3 with 2.4 seconds left. He's just on another level, offensively. And let's be honest, defense doesn't generally count much for these awards.

    Yes unfortunately for Nick, this award is McDermott's to lose. The award is biased towards offensive #'s, but aren't most MVP/MOP awards in the majority of the sports world? I'm sure Nick would take a title over an individual award any day anyways....

    I'm sure Nick would be just fine with a MOP of the Final 4 award!

    I wonder if Doug would trade all his awards in for the record we have though.
    I blame ESPN, PAC-12 Network, Larry Scott, East Coast Bias, Direct TV, Dish Network, The Honda Center, PAC-12 Refs, and Mark Lyons

    Aztec: Creighton is 18-3 and top 5 in kenpom's rankings. They're underrated in the polls, but we know how little that means.
