Don't really agree with some of them, then again, I don't really care either.

Depends on who is jumping to the NBA.

Take a pick. No seniors on the 1st team. Although I think Tucker and Aldridge will both be gone. Rush? Possibly.

Rush/Wright/Chalmers are all candidates for next year's award.

Roby and Jackson will be right there, but that depends more on how well their respective teams do.

So is Gibson (Texas), but I hope everyone else from Texas leaves.

I hope this doesn't go to Rushs head and he thinks he's NBA caliber. Another two years for him and he should be first round material.

I think his 3 point showing vs Texas might keep him here.

and I think he had a 6 point performance another game.

Before the game against KSU he had averaged 9 points in the past three games. He could definately use another year and I'm sure he is going to stay.

An undeserving punk on an underachieving team? There's no reason to be bitter.

But I know there's a lot of people in Ames that are pissed at Stinson. He's a piece of shit.

THOMAS GARDNER - 3RD Team All Big 12. So much for being top 3 scoring in the conference. Somebody out there knows what they're talking about.

Law instead of Rush, too. Can't say I'd disagree.

IMO Richard Roby falls under the same category as Thomas Gardner in being the only one on the team that can score. Personally I dont think Roby is that great. He doesn't deserve 1st team, 2nd team is more likely IMO.

Roby is a great player on a bad team. He's a freaking sophomore too. Give him a couple of even a half-way decent role players and he'd be player of the year in the conference this year. I like his game a lot.
