CBSSports.com – or cbs.sportsline.com, or whatever its calling itself these days – got it right Thursday, in my opinion. The Web site named Michael Beasley its National Player of the Year, as well as National Freshman of the Year and a first-team All-American.
I half-heartedly argued Mike’s case in this piece for foxsports.com, and the hate mail from the pro-Tyler Hansbrough crowd mounted in a hurry. It was staggering in its volume. It was also impressive. This means a lot to Carolinians – is that the term? – and if it means that much, they should have it then. Seriously. It’s really not that big of a deal.
That’s all I’ve got. I’m in K.C., and they’ve done a nice job with the Sprint Center since December. As an aside, Jeff Bzdelik is a genius. And if you’re not here – and even if you are – check out “K-Stated” later tonight for my evening updates. They won’t be in real time, but I promise they’ll be snarky. I like the snark. Or I like to snark. Whatever. You get the idea.
