    Pro scout at Kansas game

    Sean Keeler column: ISU's Brackins wows with his performance | DesMoinesRegister.com | The Des Moines Register (sorry if already posted)

    It says somewhere in there that a guy from the bulls was courtside. Great for CB, but bad for us.

    CB is probably going to hang it up this year, and I would not blame him.

    If he does in fact leave, which there is a good possibility, I would love the Bulls to draft him.

    Re: Pro scout at Kansas game

    I think Craig would be crazy to go pro this year. Yeah he had a good game shooting from outside yesterday, but lets be honest, that doesn't happen too often. I think he projects as a PF in the NBA and he's not big enough for that I don't believe. He needs to pack on about 20lbs or so before he's ready otherwise he'll be thrown around like a rag doll. He'd end up being one of those guys that go to waste at the end of the bench and after 4 or 5 years you never hear of him again. If he comes back for his JR year he can improve his game and end up being a lottery pick.

    If CB has physical limitations that limit his projections as a PF in the NBA, another year in Ames doesn't change anything in that regard. If he needs to gain weight, he can do that anywhere he is living. I believe that he is close to maxing out his game in college. Coming in to this season the big question was his rebounding production. He has passed that hurdle. What more does he need to prove?

    Funny. It seems to me that there's an NBA scout at most games. His name's Fred Hoiberg.

    Consistency? The ability to battle with the top PF's? That he can put a team on his shoulders, and carry them to Wins? Titles?

    I know I'm reaching, but I can dream, can't I?

    Re: Pro scout at Kansas game

    How thin is Chris Bosh? Jermaine O'neal? Those are some pretty good PF's that are very thin.

    It is a myth to think you have to be strong to be a good PF in the NBA.

    Re: Pro scout at Kansas game

    Given this discussion . . I need to vent:

    1) Student athletes need to attend college until they graduate (or flunk out of school).

    2) Athletes . . like Brackins, et al . . need to be developed in a NBA farm club. And stay out of college IF they have no intention of getting a degree. Let the Professional sports PAY for player development. Players who leave early should be FORCED by contract to pay the scholarship money back. Just like ROTC scholarship students.

    3) In today's currency, the ISU's of the world will never be able to build/sustain a program. Too many players jumping ship for a quicker entry into the NBA.

    4) It is time to admit that collegiate NCAA basketball in dying a thousand cuts from the NBA. And some of you wonder why attendance is dropping.

    5) College sports is fast becoming unaffordable, uninteresting (same teams dominate), and prone to ship jumpers (coaches and players).

    6) The NCAA is corrupt to the core for allowing 5) to occur . . . ISU is a great example of all this.

    7) NCAA = $$$$$$$$ and favoritism.

    I am sick of this crap.

    1 & 2. Huh?? What are you talking about?

    3. You are right. Teams like ISU will never be able to sustain a program.

    Bosh good example, but O'Neal is built so not a good example.

    Re: Pro scout at Kansas game

    I just hope someone doesn't feed Craig a line like a lot of scouts and agents do and he makes a big mistake by leaving then getting drafted in the 2nd round. Many players get told big things every year then wind up getting drafted much lower or not at all and by that time it's too late. Craig has had some big games but let's not get too carried away yet. He has a lot of work to do before I can envision him being a 1st rounder this year. Going up against Griffin who will likely be a top 5 pick will tell a lot next weekend I think.


    Go Cubs Go!

    He hasn't passed ANYTHING other than have a few outstanding games. We're entering the meat of the schedule against "real" competition so lets see if he can uncork it consistently. He's had too many games this year against lesser competition where he didn't seem to make an impact.
