    Craig Brackins Update?

    Anyone have any new information on his intentions? Any things that you have heard? Does anyone know which way he is leaning or when he will put his name in? Just looking for an update. Thanks. (Sorry For making another CB thread)

    Re: Craig Brackins Update.

    You used the wrong punctuation at the end of your title... really should be a question mark, not a period. I know people hate grammar/spelling/punctuation police, but this actually makes a difference...

    Re: Craig Brackins Update.

    I heard he was at Jeff's Pizza last night around 2AM


    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great
    True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!

    And thank you Stumpy for this:

    Re: Craig Brackins Update.

    Look at it this way...

    If he was ready to bolt and set on going anywhere in the first round, he would have declared by now. The vast majority of players have declared by now and those that weren't deep in the big dance declared even earlier on average.

    While nobody knows what CB is thinking in his own head, we can only be encouraged the longer things drag out.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: Craig Brackins Update?

    Not to be an ***, but i was expecting some sort of news.

    If anyone had any news you can guarantee it will be all over this site. Right now it hopefully is 50/50.

    It sounds like that is exactly where it is. All of the draft "experts" had CB in the 99% "he will declare" category, now most have him 50/50. That has to be good for Iowa State.

    Re: Craig Brackins Update?

    CB has until April 27th to declare his intent to enter the draft, with or without an agent.

    As others have said, when he makes an announcement, it will be all over the place.

    Re: Craig Brackins Update?

    I've been thinking any day now for the past 2 weeks. Whether he goes in or not, I just want him to come out and say it. I know its a big decision but I am very anxious as to what he is going to decide.

    I don't think he was asking for an update. I'm pretty sure he was demanding an update.

    Thus, the punctuation was correct.

    Re: Craig Brackins Update?

    I think the fact that he hasn't declared already represents two positives.

    1) He is carefully weighing his decision and waiting to see who else goes along with take in all the information he can before he does anything.

    2) Each day he comes closer and closer to staying, if he were going or even had an inkling of going, he would have declared with or without an agent already.

    For me, each day that passes makes me more optimistic that he will stay, but that is just me.

    Re: Craig Brackins Update?

    Doesn't it say what he's doing on his Facebook page?


    Forever trying to find a cure for the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

    Sadly, no. I check it every so often but there are no hints as to what he is going to do. Only his "peeps" telling him to go pro. I want to punch every single one of those people who posts something like that.

    This is the second misleading thread title tonight. First I saw, "Dendy signs" so I go and make this awesome looking "Dendy-Lion" sign to bring to the basketball games next year. I uploaded a picture of the sign to post on the thread... but no... it's talking about him signing to play for Iowa State. Rediculous.

    Re: Craig Brackins Update?

    Let's put it this way, he has not been talking to the coaching staff a lot about his intentions since the initial sit down. This is a positive lean towards him staying. As we all know things can change.
