    Probably. Hoiberg should regardless but I think it's a safe bet

    Heck, it's a beauty pageant anyway. All we need to know is that CFH did an amazing job. He can coach!

    I think Haith still deserves it if they beat Kansas and/or ISU.

    I would give it to either CFH or Bill Self. What he's done at KU this year is an amazing coaching job too. I'm not saying that Haith is not doing a bad job, I just think Hoiberg and Self have done better coaching jobs

    I wonder how much politics will play into the decision. Would the conference be willing to give postseason awards to a program that is leaving in a few months to another conference?

    We were picked 9th? Fred hands down, no brainer, but we all know common sense plays no part of these things.

    It should play a lot imo. It's like, "I'm taking my talents to southbeach" then Cleveland giving James the citizen of the year award.

    If Mizzou and Haith go 0-2 in the next 2, Fred has a chance. I don't know if that's going to happen though. It'd be nice, but it's not something we should expect.

    I don't think Fred or anyone on the team cares much about individual honors. But they all care so much about the team. You can genuinely see that.

    As great as the '99 team was, they also cherished all the individual recognition that came their way.

    Win at Missouri, coupled with whatever Fred did for this game (unreal first half; withstanding the rally in second half on the road), makes me like his chances.

    Unfortunately, it's going to come down to Haith & Self.
    * If Missouri wins the title, it's Haith
    * If KU wins, it's Self.

    Self should be no higher than third. It's freaking Kansas. Everyone expects you to be good*— every year.

    If Missouri ends up tied with ISU or a win ahead, I think Fred should get it. If you think about where ISU has come in a year compared to Missouri there is no contest. If ISU is close it should go to CFH.

    If we win one more game, it will be the biggest one year win difference in conference history, so, I would guess if we beat Baylor, Fred is a lock.
