Rationale for Ja's election to 2nd team All-American

Post by racernut69 » Tue Mar 12, 2019 12:38 pm

Congrats to Ja for this wonderful achievement.

What's your feelings on this? I thought he was the best point guard in the nation?

Is the problem that he plays for a lowest quadrant team?
Does the fact that many teams in our league reside in the lower 300 rank of all colleges in the nation have an impact?

Is lack of big time national exposure a factor?
Are the first-team guards that much better than Ja?

I'm perplexed.

Thank you Sporting News. We all know the Racers did not need extra motivation for The Dance but they just Ja something MORE to play for. Racer Nation appreciates it!

"I am not sure how Murray continues to get the amazing guard play year after year which won the tourney for them. Belmont had more talent and better coaching but for Morant who is head and shoulders above all there. It will be interesting to see how he does in the NBA."
So much stupid... :doh:

Here's a good article I found on Ja but it is also indicative of how the rest of the country views the OVC

We all know Ja can play against anyone in Division I. We know that. Most of the world knows that. As for the comments about the OVC, I'm failing to see where the writers opinion is wrong. You have four good teams and the rest could barely beat an Upward church league team if given the chance. We know that. The world knows that. I find it very difficult to defend this conference. Very difficult. Numbers don't lie. And as for Ja, had he laid an egg against Auburn and Bama, I would say there might be something to it, but he lit them up too. He will be just fine. We know that and the doubters will soon learn that.

Yes, we have eight teams that are in the bottom half of the NCAA, but we have four that can beat most teams from 25-100 on any given night, and two in the top 50. There was no mention of Murray being in the top 30 programs, and the number of times they have been either ranked or receiving votes for the top 25 in the last seven years. The goal of this article was to make it look like Ja wasn't playing against anyone, but we and the NBA know he would have accomplished what he has if he had been playing against anyone. I am just glad that he has had a few days to make sure he and his teammates are healthy going into the tournament, and I hope they are able to make some noise.

Im old enough to remember when being "politically correct" was understood to mean "not being a complete, racist, xenophobic a-hole". Good times...

Are we up to $100 million in free publicity yet? Hell, yesterday and today alone have to be worth $20 million. The Dan Patrick show talked about Ja on and off for the entire three hours. Great stuff.
