    Hamilton vs. Brackins

    Why is it that Hamilton is now doing the tip-off? He hasn't won one yet. I love seeing him on the court and even starting, but I think Brackins needs to be doing the tip-off. Any reasoning to why he isn't?

    Re: Hamilton vs. Brackins

    I think CB won about 1 out of 10 as well. No biggie to me.

    Re: Hamilton vs. Brackins

    I thought it had to do with the tip-off contest and someone telling Greg it was very important that prize not be awarded. Greg didn't want to make it too obvious by using Petey or Eik - so he went with Hamilton...

    We never win the tip therefore we never win the game.

    Can you call ESPN? 'Cuz they have that game down as a loss to us and I'd rather not have yet another illegitimate loss to KU in our history...

    Re: Hamilton vs. Brackins

    The tip-off is pretty meaningless imo...if Brackins rolled his ankle coming down on someone's foot during the tip-off, people would be calling for Greg's head.

    Re: Hamilton vs. Brackins

    No, people wouldn't be calling for gregs head, injuries are a part of the game. and if he had brackins doing the tip like he should be, and he got injured, it would just add to the bad luck or lack of luck that our Clones have had pretty much all year long.

    Have you read this message board? Trust me, if Brackin's was injured doing the tip-off (which is basically meaningless) there would be people blaming McDermott (fair or not).

    Re: Hamilton vs. Brackins

    I have been watching this pretty closely since the beginning of the season. I'm pretty sure we have only won the tip-off 3 times ALL YEAR.

    Re: Hamilton vs. Brackins

    Petey might as well be doing tipoffs for as many as we've gotten this season.

    Congratulations!!! B3 ! This has a chance to win

    the most obscure nitpicking post of the yr. I am shocked no one else has discovered this secret plot by G-Mac. Its further proof G-Mac is the worst coach in the nation, and must be fired immediately!

    Re: Hamilton vs. Brackins

    Brackins got like 1 out of 10, whereas Hamilton has gotten like 1 out of 5. That's a better percentage last time I checked.
