For real, what the the hell is going on here?
Live on BTN, Mike Hall just (awkwardly) walked us through the regular season awards for the Big Ten and as expected, Miles Bridges was voted the Big Ten Freshman of the year,
Howard Wolowitz Richard Pitino was voted Big Ten coach of the year and Caleb Swanigan brought home player of the year honors.
The surprise of the night however came right after Miles Bridges finished he interview for Freshman of the Year as the graphic came up for All-Freshman Team:

Like...we are glad Miles is on there but NO BIG PUDDIN’?! Ward was selected as the Big Ten Freshman of the week FOUR TIMES this season. He was also selected the Big Ten overall player of the week just last week. Not really sure why this happened, I am actually a bit shocked.
We are polling right now, maybe with enough votes we will file a petition online and force someone to give us an explanation.
