POY / COY "Expert" opinions - FWIW.... and it's better than you'd think

ESPN has a big write up on POY and COY picks from their stable of 15 basketball "experts" (read: bloggers, contributors, analysts, and writers).  It's an inexplicably terrible spreadsheet (it's called "fixed column width, guys), but covers each "expert's" picks for Coach of the Year and Player of the Year for each conference.  Curiosity got the best of me and I had to see just how heavy the OSU slant would be......  not as bad as I thought. 

I'll save you some pain - here's the totals:

POY:

JaJuan Johnson: 7

Jared Sullinger: 7

Jordan Taylor: 1 (Jay's been watching too may Duke games....)

 

COY:

Matt Painter: 8

Thad Matta: 5

Bo Ryan: 2

The COY numbers are less surprising.  Glad to see JJ getting some well deserved recognition.  Very Glad.  Also of note, 5 "experts" give the Boilers a sweep on the two awards, picking JJ and Matty.  Only 2 for Sully and Thad.  Hmmmm.
