  1. What a crock! 15 players on the team? Have some guts and vote 5 first team, 5 second team and 5 third team otherwise you take away from the real players. And Stallworth of Cal that has no post moves, shot and can't play D or block out anyone any good? Give me a break. Cal must be thankful for a bone.

  2. It is kind of weird that they didn't pick first and second teams.

    So if readers were to take out anyone on the list of 15, who would it be?

    Who would be put in place of those removed?

    How would first, second and third teams look?

    Intelligent answers = a blog post.

  3. Outside of the lumped together "All Pac 10 Team" I think the awards went as expected. I was hoping that Nikki Caldwell might get the COY for leading the Bruins to the best record in Bruin history, but I figured Tara's perfect (Pac 10) season would trump that.

    Didn't the used to do 1st team, 2nd team, etc…
