From Gary Laney of 2theadvocate.com in Louisiana, “The straw polls start every year around this time. If you're a voter for national player of the year in men's college basketball, they start contacting you in January, getting a feel for how you'll vote at the end of the season. Until I was contacted last week, I honestly hadn't given it much thought beyond how much I've heard about John Wall as a candidate.”
