  1. How long has it been since they divided this into East/West. I think its great! Maybe a good idea for the tournament…

  2. I’m surprised there are only two Canadians.

    John, sorry, not a good idea to split the NCAA tournament into East/West. You could potentially end up with what happens in the ND state high school tournament, where one side is much better than the other and deserving teams get left out of the tournament.

  3. Awesome recognition men! Very Proud.

    Gee, just think how many more All-Americans we’d have in the past decade if we had a decent coach <>
