So who is the POY for 2011?


Jimmer mania has come and almost gone.  Is he really the national POY?  Rick Reily's article over at ESPN is about as critical as anyone has been on Fredette.  Granted, one bad game doesn't wash all away, but his criticism extends far past that. 

"The weird thing is, [his defense] has gotten progressively worse over the year," says Fredette's own teammate, Nick Martineau. "From the start, he's never really been accountable to it, but it's just gotten looser as the year's gone on. But he can play defense. He really can. He'll definitely tighten it up for the NBA."

The weird thing is, is that really someone you can call the Player of the Year?  I'm not positive he has that bright of a future in the NBA, but that's really another discussion.  Looking at the 1st Team All Americans:

This should be the short list of candidates.  This isn't (or shouldn't be) the National Offensive Player of the Year, so I'm not big on Jimmer.  I can't get behind Sully given that he's not even the best player in the Big Ten.  That leaves Nolan, Kemba, and JJ.  Obviously, folks here will be big on JJ, but objectively speaking - Who should it be?
