    Craig Brackins quote in Register

    Well I think that would lead you to believe he will be gone after this year:

    College basketball preview: Players progress through stages in classroom, sports - and life | desmoinesregister.com | The Des Moines Register

    "t's no secret that Iowa State forward Craig Brackins is likely headed to the NBA after this season.

    "I know I want to get my degree, so I approach it as I've got to do everything I can while I'm here so it will be easier for me when I leave to come back and get it,'' said Brackins, who is majoring in speech communications.

    I really can't think of a way to spin that...

    Re: Craig Brackins quote in Register

    Is this a surprise? I personally think it's in his best interest to go pro after this year. Every year he stays in school he gets another year older, and is another year not making the big bucks...He can always finish up his degree later.

    Common. This is a nonissue. We should be lucky he stayed for this year even!

    We were all shocked that he stayed this year. Why in the world would we expect him to stick around ANOTHER year?

    I'd personally tell him to go pro after this year if he bothered to ask. Even if Barnes and Gilstrap are at ISU.

    That doesn't surprise me at all. I can't remember a college athlete that was more well-spoken than Craig. He impresses me every time I hear an interview with him.

    Brakins, Barnes, and Gilstrap... Just to know that this has the slightest remote possibility of existing is incredible!

    In my wildest Cyclone fantasies, Barnes commits to ISU because CB promised him he'd stay for his senior year.

    Re: Craig Brackins quote in Register

    Anyone holding out hope that either Brackins or Gilstrap will be around next season (barring injury) is just fooling themself. Ane we'll be fine without them.




    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Who knew?

    This was exactly my thought.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    I respect him a ton for even staying this year. It is one of the best things to happen to Cyclone basketball ever and may have saved the program for years to come.

    Agreed! We are SO lucky to have him this year! He could be playing games in the NBA right now making millions. There should be ZERO Cyclones mad when he leaves at the end of this season.

    It takes a lot of students more than 4 years to get their degree. But it is not suprise that he is thinking NBA after this year. It is good because he will has goals and be pushing himself and his team to achieve those goals
