Syracuse Orange Blogger Awards: Most Valuable Player

Andy Lyons

In one of the most lopsided votes in the entire history of the S.O.B. Awards, the Syracuse Basketball MVP award went to none other than Cornelius Jaque Fair, earning 82% of the fan vote and a near sweep of the TNIAAM contributors.

We've tallied up the votes and the 2013 Syracuse Orange Blogger (S.O.B.) Awards have been decided. Let's honor the players, coaches, fans and moments from the 2012-2013 Syracuse Orange basketball season.

In what should not come as a shock, C.J. Fair easily lapped the field to be awarded the S.O.B. for Most Valuable Player. The main debate came down to Michael Carter-Williams (most electric, NBA talent) against C.J.'s consistency. The comment thread in the post breaks down the candidates nicely, with John and Chris going the MCW way. But in the end, Carter Jameson won out, impressing Sean:

...I think Fair was almost certainly the most consistent guy on the floor every night. No matter what, he seemed able to provide points, help, sparks and anything else needed. He's also the only reason we were in that Michigan game at all.

While Dan goes all Bill Raftery on us:

He was SU's most consistent player all year, which was vital during the dog days of 2013; when Syracuse couldn't buy a bucket for a month, Fair was always there with a savvy lefty kiss off the glass or a mid-range jumper or a corner three.

With Jared giving us the stats to bring it all home:

The best thing about C.J. is he progressively got better as the season went on, and that can't be said for the rest of the Orange players. By the time March hit, Fair was the focal point of Syracuse's offense -- through SU's first 15 games he averaged just 12.6 ppg, while in the final 25 he averaged 15.7; he constantly snagged 7 rebounds per game.

I voted for C.J. as well, based on everything everyone has already said above. And of course, leave it to Invisible Swordsman to sum it all up perfectly.

His consistency gives him the edge over MCW. Always played under control, and should be a national POY candidate heading into 2013/2014

So congratulations to Carl Junior Fair, you are the S.O. B. MVP!
