Since we have some time to kill before the next game, lets do a little poll.

Nominate ONE PLAYER PER CATEGORY, and after 3 or 4 days, I will tally them up and post the results. Do not say "tie between Raivio and Bouldin" or something like that, or I won't be able to add them up correctly. If nothing else, leave the answer blank if you can't decide. Please only vote once.

***You CAN nominate 1 player in more than 1 category.

I hadn't read the responses before posting, and I just have to say to Allez that you REALLY need to look into FACTS before you go talking about me any more. Comments are NOT appreciated. If you have a beef with me, PLEASE go ahead and hit that "send private message" button and ASK me about it. I'm more than willing to respond and discuss the issues. Thank you for your respect.

ummm, BulldogShawn....it's called a joke. I think 99.9% of the people here would take it as such. No disrespect intended. obviously it sticks in your craw a bit, so for that, I apologize. I have no beef with you. Other than you being a Don's fan :o (again, humor...)

1- MOST IMPROVED-
Jeremy Pargo. He really grew as a player between his freshman and sophomore seasons.

2- BIGGEST SURPRISE (player)-
Matt Bouldin

3- REGULAR SEASON MVP-
Jeremy Pargo - tough call over D-Rav here but I still believe that if Pargo wasn't "stirring the drink" as Majerus says, then this team would have struggled a lot. Derek is a very close second.

4- NEWCOMER OF THE YEAR-
Abdullahi Kuso

5- YOUR PERSONAL FAVORITE ZAG-
David Pendergraft

6- 110% AWARD-
David Pendergraft

7- BEST ZAG ON DEFENSIVE END-

8- PLAYER MOST EXCITED FOR NEXT SEASON (recruit or current)-
Austin Daye

9- GAME YOU WISH WE HAD BACK-
Duke - Would've been nice to claim those W's against both UNC and the Dookies.

10- FAVORITE GAME OF REG SEASON-
Memphis - Even though they lost I saw a fire that I hadn't seen in a Zags team in quite a long time. The "chip on the shoulder" or "us against the world" was back. Loved it.

This actually caused me to laugh out loud. What? Since we dont have anything going on for the next week - can you two fight. Then we can get on here and debate your performances.....FYI: Bulldog this is also a joke.

too old to fight BulldogShawn. Besides, he is obviously a good chap.

However, if we can get enough Pay Per View revenue, I am sure that BDS and I could whet your whistle with some sort of staged cage match. I might even let him win if I could get a 60/40 payout.

4- NEWCOMER OF THE YEAR- Bouldin

5- YOUR PERSONAL FAVORITE ZAG- I pass

6- 110% AWARD- Pendo, as always

7- BEST ZAG ON DEFENSIVE END- Pargo (Kuso if he didn't get into foul trouble all the time)

8- PLAYER MOST EXCITED FOR NEXT SEASON (recruit or current)- Bouldin

9- GAME YOU WISH WE HAD BACK- Georgia. That loss caused GU to go into a tailspin. GU has no business going back east for a game like that after finals week. Never again.

10- FAVORITE GAME OF REG SEASON- UW for the victory, Memphis for the quality of play.

1- MOST IMPROVED- Pargo

2- BIGGEST SURPRISE (player)- Downs pulling down 10 rebound per game as a "4"

3- REGULAR SEASON MVP- Raivio.

4- NEWCOMER OF THE YEAR- Bouldin. Kuso's contribution may be more valuable in the contex of JH suspension, but Bouldin has also helped fill the void in the middle.

5- YOUR PERSONAL FAVORITE ZAG- Pendo

6- 110% AWARD- Surprise! Raivio. He's played iron-man minutes all season with a bulls-eye on his back

7- BEST ZAG ON DEFENSIVE END- Pargo. IMO, it's an overlooked part of his game. He's been so strong rebounding as well. JH is a good shot-blocker, but too quick to leave his feet.

8- PLAYER MOST EXCITED FOR NEXT SEASON (recruit or current)- PMAC. He plays well when he knows he has to contribute. As a senior leader, I have a feeling that the Zags will need him and that he will respond. I may be guilty of wishful thinking here...

9- GAME YOU WISH WE HAD BACK- Duke

10- FAVORITE GAME OF REG SEASON- UNC. The look of shock and disbelief on the faces of the UNC players toward the end of the game was something I will always remember

I wrote long explanations for each, but I'll take it easy on WOO for most of them.

1- MOST IMPROVED- Kuso.

2- BIGGEST SURPRISE (player)- Burgess

3- REGULAR SEASON MVP- Drav - "clutchiness."

4- NEWCOMER OF THE YEAR- Downs

5- YOUR PERSONAL FAVORITE ZAG- My man Pendo. (My favorite memory, other than his performance the last two games, was when he dove out of bounds after the loose ball with 20 seconds left against UW in December. We had quite the lead, but he was still playing just as hard for every possession.)

6- 110% AWARD- Pendo

7- BEST ZAG ON DEFENSIVE END- Heytvelt

8- PLAYER MOST EXCITED FOR NEXT SEASON (recruit or current)- Pendo - his senior year

9- GAME YOU WISH WE HAD BACK- The Santa Clara loss at home. I'll take the Virginia and Georgia beatings. I'll take a 1pt OT loss to Memphis. I'll take the loss to the Cougs. But I want the streak back.

1- MOST IMPROVED - Pargo - From "Penetrating out of control" to "Taking it to the rim, BABY!"

2- BIGGEST SURPRISE (player) - KUSO! - I still think that sportswriter was onto something when he wrote "Cuso"... a subliminal cross, I think, between "Kuso" and "Cujo". What a "coming out party" in MSG for this kid.

3- REGULAR SEASON MVP - Ravio - Over Pargo, barely.

4- NEWCOMER OF THE YEAR - Downs - Prior to two weeks ago this was Bouldin, hands down. Now I'm a bit torn, but I'll go with Micah.

5- YOUR PERSONAL FAVORITE ZAG - Bouldin - More of "the Pistol" to come, I hope!

6- 100% AWARD - Pendo - This has to be runaway for today's "USA Today Front-Page Kid" (Sorry, Woohoo. I'll respectfully rename the award because I'm one of those AR types who can't stand the use of "110%" in describing individual effort.... "Boy, that Woohoo can determine proper game-start times 110% of the time.");)

7- BEST ZAG ON DEFENSIVE END - Foster - Downs and Kuso are the real guys here, but I'm going with Big Will since I'm thinking he won't garner many, if any, votes, and he just plain deserves one.

8- PLAYER MOST EXCITED FOR NEXT SEASON (recruit or current) - Daye - Gotta have SOMEBODY fill the "active Big" role.

9- GAME YOU WISH WE HAD BACK - Duke - Then the dookies would HAVE to invite us back to MSG.

10- FAVORITE GAME OF REG SEASON - UDub - Best K2 "electricity" level of the year. In hindsight, due to the Dawgs' underachieving year, I'd be tempted to go with the SMC home win, but, in real-time, its closing out the series with a dawg tush-whuppin.

1- MOST IMPROVED- Pargo

2- BIGGEST SURPRISE (player)- Foster. This may seem like a surprising choice but I was most surprised to see how relatively athletic he is for a kid his size at this stage of his career. I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that he will be on a lot of people's "Most Improved" lists next year.

3- REGULAR SEASON MVP- The team.

4- NEWCOMER OF THE YEAR- Bouldin

5- YOUR PERSONAL FAVORITE ZAG- Pargo. I love his warrior mentality.

6- 110% AWARD- Sean and Pendo

7- BEST ZAG ON DEFENSIVE END- Pendo. He still collects a few too many fouls but the effort and energy he expends on the defensive end is unmatched. Add to it that he plays much bigger players most of the time.

8- PLAYER MOST EXCITED FOR NEXT SEASON (recruit or current)- Sacre. I don't know how much he will have to offer his freshman season but I will be so happy to see some bulk in the middle again.

9- GAME YOU WISH WE HAD BACK-Memphis

10- FAVORITE GAME OF REG SEASON-UNC

1- MOST IMPROVED - Kuso

2- BIGGEST SURPRISE (player) - Downs

3- REGULAR SEASON MVP - Raivio

4- NEWCOMER OF THE YEAR - Bouldin. I'm expecting great things next year!

5- YOUR PERSONAL FAVORITE ZAG - Tie: Raivio -- No quit in him; Pargo -- love the fearlessness and the in-your-face jams.

6- 110% AWARD- Mallon and Pendo. The game isn't just about talent but heart and will to win.

7- BEST ZAG ON DEFENSIVE END - Kuso. Funny to think about how Josh's departure has created an opportunity for Kuso to show us what he has.

8- PLAYER MOST EXCITED FOR NEXT SEASON -- Foster. Tough to hype a kid we've (I've) seen so little of, but the glimpses suggest he could be a game-changer. You can't teach height.

9- GAME YOU WISH WE HAD BACK - Tie: Memphis (winnable game); Virginia (what on earth was that all about? -- hope to see them in the NCAAs)

10- FAVORITE GAME OF REG SEASON - Tie: Stanford (fight and effort); Texas (a win that looks bigger and more impressive every day)

Since we have some time to kill before the next game, lets do a little poll.

Nominate ONE PLAYER PER CATEGORY, and after 3 or 4 days, I will tally them up and post the results. Do not say "tie between Raivio and Bouldin" or something like that, or I won't be able to add them up correctly. If nothing else, leave the answer blank if you can't decide. Please only vote once.

***You CAN nominate 1 player in more than 1 category.

2- BIGGEST SURPRISE (player)- Kuso

This was a tough survey. There were several categories that I could just have easily gone with one or two other players. I guess that's what makes the team so great.

Guess I need to fill MINE out! This is pretty tough!



1- MOST IMPROVED- PARGO

2- BIGGEST SURPRISE (player)- KUSO- wasn't sure what to expect.

6- 110% AWARD- PENDO!

7- BEST ZAG ON DEFENSIVE END- DOWNS, with them lanky arms

8- PLAYER MOST EXCITED FOR NEXT SEASON (recruit or current)- BOULDIN- I think he is going to make such a huge impact, he's a gym-rat, and I love those kind of players. Plus, I just love watching him altogether, he's got such a beautiful game. (a little nod to Daye as well though)

9- GAME YOU WISH WE HAD BACK- Definitley Duke. I have always dreamed of beating them, plus, I was AT the game.

10- FAVORITE GAME OF REG SEASON- Hmm, gotta be Stanford for me.

1- MOST IMPROVED-Pargo from last year to this; Kuso during the year (especially defensively).

2- BIGGEST SURPRISE (player)-Downs-- he is not a jerk, or selfish or whatever it was everyone was saying he was going to be.

The Josh votes are funny, but if you know the students and the student body the only thing really suprising is that it was over an ounce of mushrooms. C'mon- anyone think an ounce is personal consumption? (Two people normally split an eighth) more than anything else that will be the thing that means he is prosecuted, and he will never play with GU again.

I like BruddahZagJpoe's "Pendo with the 3" vote-- I am always surprised, too.

3- REGULAR SEASON MVP-Ravio

4- NEWCOMER OF THE YEAR-Bouldin (too easy)

5- YOUR PERSONAL FAVORITE ZAG-Casey Calvary (oh, this year? Pargo)

6- 110% AWARD-Pendo (yup this one is almost by acclamation)

7- BEST ZAG ON DEFENSIVE END- LG. :-) Okay, PMAC.

8- PLAYER MOST EXCITED FOR NEXT SEASON (recruit or current)-Bouldin.

9- GAME YOU WISH WE HAD BACK-Santa Clara. Losing the streak sucked. The Georgia loss was especially tough given the scheduling and the resulting series of losses.

10- FAVORITE GAME OF REG SEASON- One of the Portland games. I like knowing we are going to win, getting big leads, etc. Sure, Texas, but the last seven minutes were garbage, and reminded me of a particular game I don't like to think about.

Nice poll.
