    Sporting News BB All Americans

    This honestly has no credibility in my opinion. I can understand Brackins not being first team, but didn't even make 2nd OR 3rd team status. Ridiculous! SN Sucks!

    Eh, I expected him to be 3rd team at best.

    Same thing happened with Gatens and Kelly getting snubbed for all-conference honors. The people that vote (do they vote) for these things only look at the overall records of each team.

    I am OK with it maybe the fewer awards he gets the more likely he will be back next year.

    Gatens is an integral part of Iowa's offense, and what Iowa wants to do in general. Without Gatens, Iowa isn't nearly as good (relatively), while OSU would still be pretty decent without Buford.

    Re: Sporting News BB All Americans

    I really don't think Hansbrough, Thabeet,and maybe even Hill deserve the honors they got but what do I know. I'd move Harangody up and put Brackins at 3rd team, Hansbrough maybe 3rd team, and I'm sure there are a few more deserving PF/C's out there for the 2nd team.

    They all got better publicity. One thing brackins does not have...this year.

    Re: Sporting News BB All Americans

    Just because Gatens was an integral part of the offense (which stunk), doesn't make him all conference. I didn't see them play much, but if Iowa had two guys that were All Conference worthy, woulnd't that make them a big underacheiver?

    He's a monster down low. Similar size to Brackins - but the two bodies look completely different. Hill is cut and very muscular, Brackins looks to be put together just not the same development from a physical standpoint.

    His numbers 18 and 11 are slightly less then CB's, but he's on a team that has other players that can score. CB was solo this year - but next year he will pace his team into the tourney with Colvin and Gilstrap adding the punch this team really needed!!!!

    When he decides to come back, Craig will be in contention for Player of the Year, lead his team to a 4th place finish in the Big 12 and be a top 8 pick in the draft.

    This has nothing to do with All-Conference voting, however. Unless there is an MVP voting.

    It doesn't appear that Gatens is All-American material today!!!
