LOOK: Tennessee fans upset over poll showing that Grant Williams isn't favorite to win SEC Player of the Year
The SEC Player of the Year award is basically down to two players at this point — Tennessee F Grant Williams and Kentucky F PJ Washington.
Williams is the reigning SEC Player of the Year and is enjoying another outstanding season for the Vols.
However, Big Blue Nation jumped to the support of Washington when ESPN’s Tom Hart tweeted a poll asking who should win the award this year. Washington currently has an overwhelming lead in the poll:

Naturally, Tennessee fans weren’t exactly thrilled with the early results. As you can see below, they came quickly to Williams’ defense, calling out Hart for having more Kentucky followers than Tennessee followers, among other arguments.
Here’s a look at some of the top responses:
14-2 in SEC
14-3 in SEC
15-2 in SEC
How is this even a debate?

This shouldn’t even be a question. PJ is a great player but Grant has had a better year.

Grant Williams. You have to look at the entire season and Grant has been the most consistent throughout.

The stats are not comparable. It’s Grant.

Gotta be Grant, PJ is a good player but Grant is POY 10 out of 10 times

70% of the people are wrong. It’s Williams and it shouldn’t be close

There is absolutely no way in heck you can make an argument of Washington over Williams
