For the third straight week, T-Will will grace the cover of Sports Illustrated. I think the famous "SI cover jinx" does not apply here because he hasn't been on the cover alone..yet. Also, this week's edition has multiple covers based upon region. I think we are safe.
SI also gave T-Will the honor of first team All-American along with Blake Griffin, Tyler Hansbrough, Ty Lawson and DeJuan Blair. After being snubbed for the Oscar Robertson, Naismith and Wooden award finalist list, it is good to see the heart and soul of the #1 team in the country finally get his just due. I think a few of the committees that picked the finalists for those prestigious awards are regretting leaving T-Will off, especially if Louisville goes as deep as expected. (twss)
Remember, you can still vote for T-Will in the Lowe's Senior Class Award. right now he has a commanding lead, but it would be nice to make a statement for the coaches and media who have 2/3 of the vote.
