    We get no respect

    Rivals.com College Basketball - Which player's return to school is most surprising?

    Yes I know we don't deserve any yet but this article was filled with slaps in the face. Everything in the article is probably true but its not fun to hear stuff like this.

    I didn't take them as knocks too much. It just seems like they expected Brackins to go pro and were surprised by his return...

    Re: We get no respect

    "Brackins delayed the launching of his pro career for at least one season to give himself a shot at helping Iowa State put together a winning season. College basketball fans across the country – whether they root for Iowa State or not – should hope that an NBA team eventually rewards Brackins for his patience."

    Sounds pretty complimentary of CB himself.

    Re: We get no respect

    With as much talent coming back in the Big 12 next year, those guys are probably spot on with what they wrote. I didn't think it was disrespectul. More truthful than anything.

    Now that I read it a second time, I probably should have worded the title better.
