At first I thought that the OUA made a good choice since the U of T has improved so much in recent years but the more I read about the snub the more I am starting to agree with the complaints. This was as dominant a season as CIS basketball has ever seen and Smart's past success should not be sued as a reason against voting for him. The fact that the team has been so strong for five years, lost their best player and yet managed to exceed expectations says a lot. Smart is the best coach in the CIS, period.

Whoever wins the award this year will have an asterix beside their name in the minds of many....and deservedly so.
