Ford To Nation: Pay Attention
A recent polling of 50 media members on the topic of the national Player of the Year found Cowboys star James Anderson lagging behind.
Anderson received but a single third-place vote.
Granted, OSU didn’t play many national TV games through the non-conference portion of the schedule, let alone any meaningful TV games. But at some point, when Big Game James was consistently carving up what many believe to be America’s best basketball conference, you’d think that curiosity might have overcome a few of my my media brethren across the country.
Apparently not, because otherwise Anderson’s exploits couldn’t be so ignored.
But is it too late? Can Anderson gather some momentum as we rush toward March?
And if so, what will it take?
Cowboys coach Travis Ford says it’ll take some folks paying attention.
“It’s going to take people who have a voice in it to watch a little tape and not sit at home and eat potato chips all night, or whatever they’re doing. Watch tape and study the game.
“Don’t just watch one conference, watch everybody. Watch the Big East and watch the ACC and the SEC and Pac-10 and the Big Ten… And figure out who the best player in the country is. It’s not hard to figure out, if you watch our team and what he does for our team.”
