    My counter to this would be that that’s where aesthetic/name recognition wins out. Awards are what they are. Imperfect and human, which inevitably invites influences outside of the simple truths.

    That’s not a counter argument. That’s literally my point. The majority of voters come from the Carolinas and Virginia. They are inherently biased toward the schools around them as they have more casual name recognition to them.

    Therefore, it’s not always a great barometer of the most deserving players and coaches. @Afamu continues to dispute this and I keep questioning him. Not sure why he quotes you, as you seem to be making my point for me.

    I just wish voters, in the Information Age, would actually take a little more pride in their vote and knowledge base.

    As do I. Try pulling your panties out of your crack just because I don’t know who a player on FSU is. Geez.

    It amazes me how much this bothers you.

    The voters don't really care that much probably.

    I’m agreeing with you, I’ve been agreeing with you aside from merely referencing the system Ham runs and its effect on statistics - which should make sense if we’re truly on the same page.

    I said it “was certainly a factor” the very first response to you.

    So the person who gets defensive anytime someone says anything negative about Duke (like the whole unbalanced schedule thing) is amazed that I’m pointing out some players in the league don’t get proper recognition due to the team they play for?

    I'd rather have an ACC Title and no 1st Team All-Conference players than no title and two guys on the 1st Team.

    Exactly. The voters keep giving Duke all these individual awards because they know they won’t win anything meaningful as a team.

    This is the first time I can remember where Duke's ACC schedule has been considered easy. Especially since UNc is normally a top team. Clemson, beat, Duke, UNc, FSU and Louisville.

    And if the guy from VT a few years ago can win POY, an FSU player can. Maybe your players aren't viewed as highly as you think within the league. Ever think of that? Instead of whining and bitching that people don't like FSU.

    Again, you worry about this a heck of a lot more than Duke fans.

    I don’t think you fully grasp the concept of a message board centered around college basketball. It’s a topic of discussion.

    Go back to my very first post in this thread. My discussion was around Vernon Carey being more deserving of POY than Tre Jones. Carey plays for Duke, FYI. I was saying a Duke player should have been POY.

    Did @Quavarius forget that there's a Duke home board?

    Coach K hasn’t won COY since 2000.

    20 years ago!

    Show me the bias.

    Was that the last time Duke won the ACC regular season?

    We also won the ACC Tournament 4 of those 6 years but according to jhmossy they only give individual awards to Duke players because they know that Duke isn’t going to win anything meaningful as a team.

    Yeah, they stopped giving it to him when he was winning the real regular season championship in the early 2000’s and started NOT giving it to him when he doesn’t win the fake, unbalanced regular season championship.

    I understand completely. Btw, I don’t red every post on a thread.

    Thanks for your concern though.
