John Robertson shafted twice in one day

 I had spent a lot of yesterday writing a piece about why John "Pinball" Robertson deserved the Walter Payton Award only to trash it when I woke up this morning and saw that he didn't even make first team all-conference, let alone win offensive player of the year. That is psychotic. How can you deny an honor to a player who has a transcendent season, in favor of a player he thoroughly outplayed, despite having fewer weapons to go to, and had to carry a team on his back.

Without Robertson, Villanova wins probably two games, and is non-competitive in some games that they wound up winning. Be outraged, people.  

Congratulations to Rakim Cox, who was rightfully named first team all-conference.
