    "Young man can score in a closet with no lights on"

    ESPN commentator talking about Brackins and no doubt that he's a lottery pick. Thought the quote was hilarious.

    I think that was Bardo, who broadcast the first KU game.

    What has impressed me most about Craig is his interviews, he's a very poised and well spoken young man.

    Whats that have to do with basketball?

    Lottery pick in 2010. Reid Gettis said during the game he could be up for national player of the year next year.

    More games, more reason for CB to bid us farewell in March, 2009.

    Yeah, McDermott can't recruit. All he gets is Missouri Valley type players.

    Hence the strategy of not playing after the B12 tourney....limit any further exposure

    Gives him more time to think about what he wants to do. But he could watch it and realize he wants to lead this team to the tourny and stay.

    This may amaze you, but there are some Cyclone fans who are more concerned about the ability of the ISU Basketball team he recruits than individual players.

    He was the best player on the floor. That guy has some serious talent and upside. I would be shocked if he stayed. Players leaving early helps future recruiting because it's what all the great players want to do.

    Re: "Young man can score in a closet with no lights on"

    What would be even bigger, is that Mac turned him from a 4 yr player into a 2 year lottery pick. Everybody thought he'd be a pro eventually but nobody thought he'd be a lottery pick by his 2nd year.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Thanks for all your great insight lately, really I mean it. I'm starting to put you right up there with Clones '85 and Monty Burns. Do you ever have anything positive to contribute?

    Re: "Young man can score in a closet with no lights on"

    I'm sorry, realism not welcome 'round these parts?

    I hate being so down, but I've never had such a "meh" attitude about ISU athletics before, ever. But, it's very, very tough to look at it, especially MBB, and think it's going to turn around quickly.

    That is, when not wearing the Cardinal & Gold glasses. With those on, well, we can still win the national title this year!

    Some here have adopted the bunker mentality of defending GMac at all costs regardless of what is actually happening in front of them.
