    It's hard to argue with him until we do something worth writing about. I like his analogy of Brackins this year to James Harden last year - if we start some winning, everyone will will know who CB is.

    Re: ESPN's Big XII shootaround

    Overall the 9th pick is a little low I think, but he did have some good things to say about us, Craig more specifically. One place he noted how we have been plagued with terrible luck (injuries and defections) and the return of Staiger and addition of Gilstrap could be the missing pieces. I think there isn't any reason not to be excited about basketball this year

    I see us no worse than 6th.

    I completely disagree with #6...but I guess there is a reason they play it out.

    Looking at that picture of Brackins...are we going to look like Minnesota again this year, or did they finally figure out the correct colors?

    Re: ESPN's Big XII shootaround

    I think 7th-10th is a reasonable pick. That makes us surely a bubble team with a chance to get in depending on if we knocked off anybody big.

    Re: ESPN's Big XII shootaround

    We will likely be a vastly improved team, but with the difficulty of our schedule and the toughness of the Big 12, it may not show up as much in our record and Big 12 standings.

    That said, he did have a lot of good things to say about ISU and Brackins. I am pumped for basketball to start... I want to see some domination!!

    I thought I remember hearing that the BBall team is now a Nike elite member, so they can get any colors they want, like the football team, and not just the standard Nike colors.

    I'm pretty sure Fran only did the write up for the standings. I could be wrong but I think someone else did wrote the other stuff.

    Hopefully if some of these new players, i.e., Gilstrap, Dendy, Christopherson & Colvin will help take some of the scoring away from CB which will make the TEAM much better but will detract CB's 20 & 9 stats. That will benefit the TEAM in a BIG way!

    I totally agree. I think we really have a chance at the 7 spot... maybe 6 if we upset some teams. Should be an awesome year of basketball!

    Re: ESPN's Big XII shootaround

    I am okay with them picking us low. Gives the players an incentive to work even harder to prove them all wrong. It's a tough conference as we all know. I have no doubt that we will upset and/or scare the pooh out of some "luxury" teams. We have too much talent not to be competitive every game.


    Enjoy.
