MVP Trophy

Was anybody ashamed by the MVP trophy awarded to Mo Wagner by the Big 10 ? I realize that it was a team effort but even little kids today are given "participation" trophies bigger than was awarded to Mo for all his efforts.  Go Blue !

I'm more offended for Simpson. I think Wagner was really valuable, but Michigan doesn't win this tournament without Simpson. His defensive efforts are somehow worth nothing to the Big Ten.

Unfortunately, people outside of Michigan fans don't see just how good he was defensively, they just see the box score.  Zavier was by far the most important player for us during the tournament.


I'll admit that I am guilty of wanting Simpson benched earlier in the season.  I am happy that he proved that I'm an idiot.

Delany and Co. KNEW that any team that had a chance of winning the tournament had to fly to New York, so they were making it easier to put in a carry-on.

I mean, as a counterpoint, could you imagine trying to get the old football alumni game MVP trophy home?

I agree. Thought the same thing. Looks like a Middle School Quiz Bowl trophy. On the other hand, at least it's not a vagina.

On Z, yeah, basketball is a guard's game, and point guard is the most important position on the floor. I don't hate seeing the trophy go to Mo, but I would think Zavier has a pretty good argument.

I thought it should've gone to MAAR but I think you could've made an argument for several different guys. This tournament wasn't one guy carrying the team on his back. It was literally the whole team carrying itself. And I don't think too many of them care who got the MVP trophy. 

They're going to be hosting a much more important trophy a little less than a month from now.
