I disagree but congrats I guess.
We are coming for you Bama!
Kirk Ferentz award, I guess finishing with 10 total losses and tied for 5th in a conference means a lot to the Big Ten media and coaches.
Wisconsin only played UofM and Indiana once, so they had the easiest path of the top 5, and had a bad home loss late to Purdue.
They also had 3 buzzer beating miracles wins.
I also saw Ohio State has now had at least one first team all Big Ten players 8 years in a row, next streak team wise is one year.
What a run by Matta.
These COY awards just make me laugh! Imagine what tOSU fball and bball teams would be like if we ever hired good coaches! Fu*k that, I'll just have to live with the Mattas and Meyers of the world (and enjoy the richness of all the victories and championships). Whomever votes for the COY awards can kiss my Buckeye a$$! I'm finished now.

Bill O'Brein and now Bo Ryan. I'm sick of Ohio State being the only program (with the exception of Michigan State in bball) in the B1G not to accept mediocrity.
I think coach Matta should have got it but u also have to give credit where credit is due. No one thought wisky was going to do anything this year they weren't even ranked preseason and they were supposed to have a down year. We were ranked top 5 preseason and we know now that ranking was inflated but still Bo Ryan deserved it also because at least we have some talent (even though alot of our guys have underachieved) but if you watch wisky play they don't have anywhere near the talent we or any of the top teams in the big ten have. I even think Minnesota and Illinois have more talent than them and I think it would be tough to disagree. Mind you I think Bo Ryan's an ass clown and has made some stupid comments with regards to his players when things haven't gone his way but just my 2 cents
The brave don't live long but Cowards don't live at All!
For some odd reason in the BIG if you are successful at landing top talent then you will not get voted COY because you are then expected to win. However, if you suck at recruiting; make due with mediocre talent and finish close to the top; then you must be a great coach. That's why the BIG trails the other conferences in football...little emphasis on getting top level talent and no recognition if you do. Jim Tressel and Urban Meyer have that in common...no COY in the BIG. It is not as bad in basketball, but you can still see the bias. How else did Bo Ryan win ? I cannot stand Crean, but he did win the conference championship in the toughest year in a long time.

What a joke!!! Bo Ryan is a total douchebag and this voting for a coach that lost 10 games is pathetic... Crean is an a$$hole, but deserves it more than Bo Ryan... Matta or Izzo are more deserving than Crean, Ryan and that tool at scUM!
