Including POY, FOY, Best Flopper, Best Fans
I sent a simple email out to the basketball writers here on OTE, asking for their First Team All-Big Ten ballot.
I got so much more. Enjoy, and I assume you the commenter will add some of your own awards.
One thing that needs to be discussed: Was there a Big Ten "Game of the Year"? I just feel like the choices are endless...Both Indiana-MSU games, the Michigan choke heard 'round the Midwest, the Ben Brust half court shot, the Minnesota defeat of Indiana and subsequent court rush.
FIRST TEAM ALL-BIG TEN
SECOND TEAM ALL-B1G TEN
THIRD TEAM ALL-B1G TEN
ALL-B1G FRESHMEN TEAM
MISCELLANEOUS AWARDS AND BEST/WORST
Best Fans: The Penn St. guys who made the cardboard sign making fun of Northwestern because it isn't in the Northwest section of the country.
According to the Comment section:
...these guys are at every game with scrap cardboard and markers, drawing these signs up on the spot. They're actually known as the "Cardboard Corner." I don't know if this one was premeditated (I'm sure they were able to concentrate hard enough on drawing the map because the thing they came to see was not so great), but it's a good bet that this wasn't the only one they made.
Worst Trend: The coaches calling for replays for the stupid flagrant elbow foul and refs seemingly always listening to them and then stopping the game for a long time.
Worst T-Shirts: Michigan: WE ON
Most Polarizing Jerseys: Michigan All-Yellow
Worst Luck: Northwestern
Best Uniforms: Illinois wearing orange at home (they don't do that enough) and Ohio State's gray jerseys (now that the gray fad from last year has past, these stand out more and look good).
Biggest Shot Chucker: Ray Gallegos
Biggest Flopper: Cody Zeller, Aaron Craft
