    Craig Brackins

    I hope that he certainly turns it around and starts playing a lot better. He has a ton of talent and we certainly need him in the future.

    His facebook message has been quite often something about missing it back at home, missing the west coast.

    Hopefully he knows right here is a great place for him to sick around, as we will need him in the future.

    His Myspace message is 'determined'.

    Re: Craig Brackins

    Who wouldn't miss the West Coast during an Iowa winter? We all know that sometimes it seems that there is no light at the end of the tunnel, but once it happens, it doesn't seem so bad. Hopefully he'll realize the same thing, come back next year, not hit a freshman slump, DOMINATE the Big 12 for a few years, and go on to a lucrative career in the NBA.

    Re: Craig Brackins

    If I had to move from Iowa to the West Coast or other far off place when I'm 18, I'd miss home as well. He seems like a person with a lot of character and I really think he's going to keep working hard to improve and get better. That's all anyone can ask.


    "I think that people are responding to someone standing up and saying this is what we want to do and let's not be afraid to go for it,'' Pollard said. "I think Iowa State has a very conservative, modest background. We never pound our chest and say `Let's do it.' It's OK to set a goal. You can't do it if you don't say what you want to do. You should be proud of it.''

    Craig isn't going anywhere. He is just upset at himself right now, and having a tough time. He just needs to get his confidence back and have one good game, and he will be just fine.

    Re: Craig Brackins

    I think he is frustrated with how he has been playing. He will snap out of it. This will make him a better player down the road. Good things are ahead.

    Re: Craig Brackins

    We are frustrated too because we know he can shoot. He needs to add more tricks to his arsennal.

    Re: Craig Brackins

    Typical freshman blues. I think a summer of weights and basketball will restore his confidence. He's a talent, as he proved in the Baylor game. I think Fizer struggled his freshman year and we all know he turned out all right.

    Keep your head up Craig! You'll fight through it and be a better player as a result.

    Re: Craig Brackins

    Fizer was all over the place as a Freshman. Craig isn't any different in that aspect. I expect the light will come on very soon.

    Exactly. I remember watching Fizer as a freshman thinking, 'why does everyone think this guy is so good?'. We know how that turned out.

    Very, very true. He needs to develop his post moves, especially his left hand.

    The good thing is that he has been successful at times; he just needs to work on some high percentage post moves. He has a ton of potential!
