    Brackins and his future

    How good of a chance is there that Brackins stays around for at least next year? What are some reasons that he should stay/go?

    Hasn't this topic been discussed a billion times already?

    Re: Brackins and his future

    If Brackins is a current lottery pick (which I think he is) he would be crazy to stay. It will be very hard for him to duplicate his stats from this season. His stock is very hot right now. He could work on getting a little stronger and improve his three point shot but he is IMHO definitely NBA ready right now. I really hope he comes back and takes ISU to the Big Dance, but sadly I think tonight was his final game as a Cyclone. He will go down as one of my all-time favorites. He was a very good representative of Iowa State University in his time in Ames.

    Re: Brackins and his future

    I wouldn't blame him either way. He could have lower stats for a better team and improve his stock a lot. If he becomes stronger, a better defender and a better outside shooter, he could really shoot up.

    His stats probably would go down if we are a better team.

    my bad, I was unaware that it was commonly discussed. I figured that it would take the entire season to play out before there could be a solid opinion on this

    Re: Brackins and his future

    probably 3+ new threads per day....im sure it will continue until he declares and tests the waters. at that point it will get real intersting with rumors he hired an agent or was seen driving around in a nice car

    Re: Brackins and his future

    Just saw on WOI 5 interview with DG that Craig wants to talk to his dad about it since Dick Garret played in the league for a few years, DG ended the interview with, "I hope he stays though"



    “One day we’ll be in here celebrating a Big 12 championship,” Rhoads said. “That I can promise you.”

    "I hope to coach here until I retire," Hoiberg said.

    Re: Brackins and his future

    Some have suggested that his best option is probably to declare without signing an agent. He can find out what his real worth is and if it isn't where he expects it to be he can return to Ames and try and raise his value.

    he needs to test the waters so at least he can see what he needs to improve on...but needs to come back:)

    Re: Brackins

    So, do you think he's leaving? Haven't see many opinions on that yet.

    Re: Brackins

    Good thinking.......I was thinking we were due for another one.

    I heard from a friend of a dentist that he has decided to work for John Deere selling lawn equipment. For what it's worth.......

    Re: Brackins and his future

    I think he will redshirt a year to work on his game.

    Re: Brackins and his future

    Brackins offense is NBA ready but his defense needs some serious work ... after tonights performance I have a bad feeling (I'm glad for him though) that he is NBA bound.
