Calling myself out as a "Homer" -- But i'd take Wrobo over Zack Rosen & Noruwa Agho for First Team All-Ivy and to lead my team anyday.

Also, having endured all of Cornell's Home and Road Ivy games (All, but the Harvard/Dartmouth trip), I'd say I liked Miles Cartwright as Frosh of the Year.

Mangano is very blunt but I actually like it that he's determined to just get better... also, that fake twitter account has convinced him it's a Cornellian which is just weak.

I understand McGonagill for unanimous ROY. Looking at their conference stats, McGonagill averaged 14.6 ppg / 4.9 rebs / 5.7 assists, with a .462 FG%. Pretty impressive. Cartwright averaged 11.9ppg and wasn't in the top 10 in assists or fg% like McGonagill was. I think McGonagill's stats were impressive for anybody.

It will be an interesting year in 2011-2012 with only 2 of the first and second team players leaving (both from Princeton).

Wright is the wrong pick for POY. Period.

One would be interested to see how the voting panned out.....

He is maybe in the top 3 behind Mangano and Maddox. Maybe.

Mangano double doubles in like every game, and he does not get DPOY or POY??? C'mon.

Bulldog got busted.....

Qualitatively, you have to like Cartwright; however, 936's stats show why it went to McGonagill - his 39 point explosion kind of sealed the deal.

i think mcinally is the glue that holds harvard together....this, from a princeton man. so that's saying something. very solid w/ ball, great perimeter defense and dynamite from 3. very underrated & overlooked here.
