    Always like to speculate about who did not vote the prohibitive favorite #1. Of course Scotty can't vote for himself and neither can Hesser. Makes me think that Hesser was the other one who voted for Lewis.

    Not a chance - Hesser doesn't play those kinds of games.

    Scotty, on the other hand, obviously didn't vote for Drury....

    True, he did not but there is a legitimate case for Lewis being Scotty's pick since he could not vote for his own team, whereas BU is easily considered the front runner. I am not convinced, however, that Hesser was the one not voting for BU. I think there are plenty of candidates who dislike Scotty so much that they won't vote for his team and then there is always the goof ball at S&T who just doesn't know any better.

    That's cool, but I'm not sure what you're basing that on. Hesser has no ego and he's a straight shooter...he'd vote for the best team no matter who it was. I'd bet my next paycheck it wasn't him.

    Scotty, on the other hand, while he obviously is a great coach, also obviously has an ego the size of Knights Hall. Not wanting to vote for the team that has the biggest chance to dethrone him would be right up the ally of a guy like that. All signs point to a couple guys in the East who won't vote for anyone outside the East....which pretty much happens every year.

    Also, I'd love to hear the legitimate case for Lewis winning the league. They finished 7th last year and lost the guy that was their best player (by a wide margin).

    Irrefutable that Scotty voted for Lewis. The fact that Drury did not get the other vote, seems to make it likely that it was Hesser's vote. Obviously can't say for sure, and it really makes no difference, but it's fun to speculate. I guess that Scotty believes Lewis is the next best team in the conference and not simply digging at Hesser. I say that because the last couple of seasons after the Drury game, Scotty has heaped immense praise on Hesser's coaching.

    He heaps praise on everyone after he wins. ;)

    After he lost to Hesser in the conference finals in '15 I watched him complain to Naumovich about the officiating for 15 minutes straight after the game...and this was while Drury's guys were cutting the nets 20 feet away.

    While Scotty certainly has his disagreements with officials, I can't imagine when he knows he is receiving the majority of the votes he would need to take a "jab" before any games have even been played? I just don't see the reason or the reward of this being a jab? They have no bad blood this season, that was 3 years ago and many games have been played since.

    The only "Jab" I see is the one "Speculation" that Hesser voted for Lewis.

    Agree. But it's just a little bitty jab that has some logic behind it.

    I don't see it. Hesser is a no nonsense man who doesn't play games. Like trying to manipulate referees for 40 minutes a game for example.

    This "who voted for whom" stuff is brutal. Who cares? I'd rather read the USI guys rip Wod -- at least that can be entertaining.

    Right, better question is who in the heck would give USI a first place vote? There’s one person out there with half a brain.

    That's the women's poll. Not THAT half brained.

    Actually, Hesser plays games for a living.

    USI Women’s graduated some key players, they’ll be rebounding this year. Coach stein has done a great job last several years and I’d expect they’ll be competitive but they won’t win the conference.
