    What I like best

    about Craig's decision, is that it gives our other post players another year to play against Craig in practice. IMO, having good competition on the practice floor is critical to being able to compete w/ the big boys. How lucky are Hamilton, Pomlee, Dendy, etc to be able to be able to develop their skills against a likely NBA first rounder? What that can do for our programs future is immeasurable, yet undisputable.

    I agree with you on that one. He makes everyone around him better, which is a big positive.

    Re: What I like best

    A very good point, although one not mentioned often. I hope Craig's leadership not only helps us this year, but sets an example for the younger to follow in the future. Craig's presence next year will pay dividends far into the future. (I hope.)

    Now that we know Craig is back, I can't wait for the sweet revenge of having him back to beat up on Iowa next season!

    I hope he can help us land another big recruit for 2010 like he helped us with getting Colvin.

    Craigs decision will be one of the biggest things to happen to ISU basketball

    Re: What I like best

    Personally, beating Iowa would be great, but I'd rather just focus on being in the top 5 of the big 12 and winning the conf. tourney and advancing to the ncaa tourney.

    Re: What I like best

    I like it because he seems to have a good head on his shoulders. It's refreshing to see some athletes on tv with the ability to talk to the press and not sound like they've never stepped foot into an English class. They may say "um" a lot but still, its better than the norm. I was astonished at how well HB sounded on sports sound off a month or so ago, what an impressive young man.
