    I didn't attend the banquet, but Schott did and had a release about it.

    And if they do, they let us know soon what went on. Wondering if they will announce the new captains at the dinner.

    I should try this award prediction thing:
    MVP - Polacek
    Most Inspirational - JFK
    Most Improved - Rabbani
    Best Defensive - Bailen
    Most Outstanding Freshman - Higgs
    Top Scholar - JFK? He's a ChemE, he must be kind of smart.
    Community Service - Let's say JFK again so he can win three.

    Pardon me for using the board as a message service but I lost RC's cell phone and email address . Hey Red Cloud, troyboy and I will meet you 45 minutes before the banquet at the Pine and we can do shots of tequilla like we did last year. It gets really embrassing when I start shouting "1 minute left in the Period" and troyboy retorts "and Clarkson still sucks" during SA's remarks That happens though when you tie a load on.

    MVP - Polacek and/or York, given that in my opinion they were 85% of the reason for which we made it so far and finished so high.
    Most Inspirational - Brock Higgs without a doubt. His comeback and contributions late in the season was pretty impressive.
    Most Improved - Rabbani or Lee
    Best Defensive - Bailen
    Most Outstanding Freshman - Higgs
    Top Scholar - Really hard to form an opinion given that I've got no inside knowledge.
    Community Service - See above

    Today is 7 May 2011. There are 147 days (21 weeks) until RPI's next game.


    This is based upon 1 October for the start of next season.

    That is the day that an exhibition game is supposedly scheduled.

    What the heck, I'll throw my hat in the ring.
    MVP - Chase
    Inspirational - probably Higgs, but I wouldn't be shocked by JFK, AAG, or any of the other names thrown around
    Most Improved - Helfrich
    Defense - either Foss or Bailen
    Freshman - Higgs
    no idea for Scholar or Community

    The previous season is definitely a good possible benchmark, but if a player starts the season as not so good and works their way through the season to one of the higher caliber players, I don't see why that shouldn't be seen as an improvement, and it doesn't seem just to them that they would have to be disqualified from the award just because they weren't around the previous year. Now if it's a case where they lost a bit in the offseason and regained it (like I would say would be the case with Helfrich), I don't think it's a good indication.
