Seems like he's got one vote, if Glockner gets to vote.

You didn't think I was gonna uncover that article and not share it did you? Jodie won't get it, but it would be historic, since we've not had a POY.

Maybe with a trip to the final four or semi-historic season then he would be considered. The team is underachieving way too much for Jodie to make much noise. I think being from UK even creates greater expectations for our big time players. IOW, if Jodie played for Davidson, then he'd probably have a better shot.

I know... that's what sucks. Our better teams of late have been the ones with balance (those Gerald Fitch/Chuck Hayes teams of the mid 2000s). Now, we've got a standout guy of all standouts and the team is struggling, I do think there's a correlation there though.

While I think Meeks is the SEC POY by a wide margin over Downey and others, he has no shot and really shouldn't. Glockner's vote will make the final tally 285-1. Griffin by a mile on his way to being the first pick in the draft.

He doesn't deserve NCAA POY. But this is one of the best season I remember from an SEC player.

No way he gets it. I say it goes to that kid from Oklahoma who's name I can't remember right now.
