    Good for Mel. The best part is, it is debatable if he is team MVP ATM.

    Re: Ejim National POY Talk

    The last 5 or 6 names on that last have no business being above Ejim. Looks like they just made sure get all the big boys a player to pump. How does a 4 year starter and the big 12 leading rebounded miss your radar?

    Re: Ejim National POY Talk

    Pretty amazing that we have a nationally renowned player (#16 on CBS' list apparently) and still be able to logically debate who the best player on this year's team is. One could make a case for Ejim, Hogue, Niang, or Kane as ISU's most valuable player. Awesome balance.

    With all due respect to the other great players, it's Hogue.

    Melvin is the quiet assassin. You don't realize that he's taking you apart, but then you look at the box score and realize he did.

    Re: Ejim National POY Talk

    If you compare their numbers, Ejim is having a better season than CJ Fair. Ejim is quietly having a great season, no one is even talking about him in terms of Big XII player of the year.

    That he so easily - and so often - flies under the radar may be his curse, but it is our blessing.

    What about Ejim, averaging 18 points and 8 boards? Or Niang, who averages 15 and takes (and makes) the big shots late in games? Or Kane, averaging 14/8/6 and being the floor general? I don't think it's as clear-cut as you seem to.

    All I'm saying is that you can make valid arguments for 4 different guys and debate for days on end. What a great problem to have for us fanatics.

    Re: Ejim National POY Talk

    How ISU's season goes matters.
    How the NCAA committee makes selections for the NCAA tournament matters.
    How ISU's players do matters.
    How the NCAA and Big 12 give/don't give players individual awards matters.

    How media outlets and journalists pick, predict and rank teams and players does not matter.

    If you don't know who Chaz Williams is then you need to look him up. He's stupid fast and a great ball player. UMASS has a great team team this year also

    Hogue is an awesome player and a big surprise that has really exceeded expectations, but I feel like a lot the success he's finding is because of Ejim (and Niang).

    Granted, he's certainly capitalizing on the opportunity that was presented, but I wouldn't trade him for Ejim just yet.

    They actually say in the article that is exactly what they did for #15...
    15. Nick Johnson (Arizona)
    Why he's here: It would be silly to have a ranking of possible Players of the Year without a representative from the nation's top-ranked team.

    You could make a serious argument that Ejim could beat out 11-15 on that list, and probably even a couple of the other ones above that.

    Edit: I've also told people that if Mel played for KU/OU/OSU/Tex he would have been a unanimous 1st-team all B12, and a potential AA. I think the same thing is playing out here as well.
