The unofficial official media poll is due out next week. That should have league picks and distinguished 1st and 2nd team, FWIW, but a different voting pool.
Jaelin Llewellyn better than at least 5 of these players in my opinion
Malik Hall, Sr., F Michigan State
Jalen Pickett, Sr., G, Penn State
ZACH EDEY, JR., C, PURDUE
Chucky Hepburn, So., G, Wisconsin
Tyler Wahl, Sr., F, Wisconsin
It says All Big Ten so they’re including all of the Big Ten
For someone who self-admittedly doesn’t care about rankings even in season, you sure do get worked up about Preseason All-whatever teams
Ha! I am just confused a bit really after doing the top 25 list. It was really hard to pick 6-25 and really easy to pick the top five. The idea that guys in the top 5 wouldn’t be in the top 10 is hard to figure out.
Looking forward to Hunter getting even better and still not ending up as first teamer postseason somehow
DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR:
Darryl Morsell, Maryland
I hope you’re right and I think he’s going to get the playing time, usage, and counting stats to appear that way no matter what. I’m not sure about Edey though - he’s a beast even if he can only play 25min. I also think one of those Wisconsin guys is going to have a big year, though probably not both.
Obviously Llewellyn is something of a mystery, but I’d have a hard time choosing four guards in the conference I think are better.
RT’d by Hunter
nice of hunter to support his fellow conference big men! he knows that when one of us wins, we all win!
TJD being overrated by the media before the season begins for the 4th year in a row? I’m shocked I tell you. Shocked!
What does RT’d mean?
It means that Hunter retweeted it.
Rigatoni Taco. It means Hunter read the tweet and felt a sudden urge for fusion cuisine
TJD szn corresponds with and lasts as long as autumn. It will be winter in Indiana soon enough.
Someone tweet Hunter a picture of TJD with Mark Turgeon’s head photoshopped in
