    Rivals Homepage Article on CB

    Really nice piece written on Brackins from the rivals home page. Really a testament to the chemistry that this team has. I like most are really excited about next year and hope that CB is right and we can make a run at the tourney.

    Rivals.com College Basketball - Brackins put off NBA to make tourney run at ISU

    On a side note, hilarious quote from Tim Floyd at the bottom concerning his USC players turning pro.

    "Kansas has two players who would have been NBA lottery picks Cole Aldrich and Sherron Collins and they are returning to school," USC coach Tim Floyd told The Los Angeles Times. "Good for them. Our guys get an offer from Islamabad and they're gone."

    Re: Rivals Homepage Article on CB

    unrelated, but interesting thought from the story...

    Quick question: When Florida coach Billy Donovan decided to return to the Gators a couple of days after being announced as the Orlando Magic's new coach back in the summer of 2007, how many of you figured the Magic would reach the NBA Finals before the Gators returned to the NCAA tournament?

    I figured the Magic had a better chance with somebody other than Donovan, that's for sure. No disrespect to Donovan but college coaches have almost always crashed and burned in the NBA.

    Great question. I assumed that the Gators would just reload and continue dancing on an annual basis.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I cant believe you would leave college early to be a late second rounder or free agent.
