    SPELL CHECK!!!! AHHHHHHH! Try again and sorry….

    You all have shown great acumen each year with your SELECTIONS….but this year I would like to have seen Belmont’s Dylan Windler get the recognition he deserves. He was just as big in the OVC as Ja Morant was….just without the media sizzle. I’m headed to Wendy’s now for dinner….love those burgers!
