    Ditto. What are the criteria for this award anyway? Is it strictly based on GPA or are other factors considered? I would think that basketball would be one of the tougher sports to manage timewise and still do well academically. I note Gesell also made the grade and I heard Woodbury would have also made it except his hands were too tiny to support a pencil.

    wow, Forgrave is chugging the Big Red kool-aid isn't he?

     

    "Call me crazy, but I think Nebraska could make the tourney this year."

     

    Also, he's really giving Wichita St a lot of love.
