    Congrats to Brackins

    I have been critical of him alot but he was the man last night. Hopefully he will stay down low for good. Rebounding and working inside might be tiring and not as fun as floating around chucking up 3's, but i bet he will have plenty of fun cashing his fat NBA checks if he keeps this up.

    I believe Brackins' response to this would be "Neigh."

    I hope he can do what he did last night against the big bodies in the big 12. Don't get me wrong, he had a heck of a game last night, but it wasn't against very good competition. If he stays that aggressive during conference play, then i will be very happy!

    Great game by Craig. He worked his *** off down low. Only thing he needs to work on IMO is consistency and kicking it out when he gets the ball in a bad position or when he gets doubled

    I don't think he will find it near that easy against good teams. A good defensive team will be able to double him AND rotate to cover the passes out of the post, they won't have to choose either or...

    But I am sure the next game Craig goes 2-13 with 5 points someone will start a thread saying how much Craig sucks.

    the critism wont come from me

    if he stays low and acts like he has a pulse when rebounding.

    Much, much better shot selection by Craig. Hopefully he doesn't start shooting the fade-aways again. Turn-around shots are ok, but when he starts fading he is around 0%. I like the baby hook.

    I hope he can get it done in the big 12 as well...One thing to think about is that the big 12 "bigs" are better defenders than that 7 foot pile from UNI last night...Craig owned whoever they put on him last night...just want him to keep it up vs. more athletic defenders in the big 12...

    I made the comment that Craig didn't pass the ball once out of the post but when the guy puts up 32 points i'll take that over kicking it out for a lower % 3ball...But I hope when he has his off nights (which there will be some) he needs to realize to kick it out then...One thing that we haven't really talked about is him staying out of foul trouble last night, good work! (not that they ponded it down low to often though)
