    And, it takes Oliver all of two years to be Coach of the Year. Some of us aren't surprised at all.

    Greg Martin - there's a name I haven't heard in a while. When they got to Bradenton, he was more highly regarded than Oguchi Onyewu. Nice to see him getting some recognition in college ball.

    Also of note, to show how much of a joke the Hermann "finalists" are, Cesar "El Gordo" Cuellar, who is one of the MAC's nominees, doesn't even make third-team all conference.

    But Cuellar did make the First Team selection for Best Customer at Krispy Kreme!!!! To say he had a disappointing year is an understatement.

    Do you think the MAC remembers who they selected? Combining the Hermann award and the "Player of the year" award last year has only eliminated a benchmark that may have kept the MAC honest and diligent.
