    Brackins

    Unless Craig turns it up a notch for Big 12 play anyone here wonder if he'll have no choice but to come back again next season? Right now I can't imagine that he's helping his draft stock and there is a HUGE difference between being drafted in the 1st and second rounds. Mostly garunteed money and length of contract. 2nd round contracts are not always garunteed and getting more than a 1 or 2 year deal is very uncommon.

    If he continues playing like he has thus far, he will have no choice but to come back... or go to Europe. He's playing really bad right now. He was 9-20 yesterday on shooting, correct? Not good.

    My guess is that his game will not improve much once Big 12 play starts, so right now I'd say it's better than a 50% shot he's back again next year.

    He needs to learn to go strait up on his shots. He lacks some inside moves.

    Re: Brackins

    This is exactly how he was prior to conference play last year as well. He went big time come conference play.

    Will be interesting to see if it repeats itself. Alot of season left.

    Re: Brackins

    Can see the frustration on Brackins face. His teammates could help him a little by moving after the entry pass. I like the isolation for Brackins, but other guys have to quit watching him.

    I think once he works out for the NBA with some talent around him he will prove himself to be solid.

    Think of the millions of dollars that he will have wasted if he doesnt go to the NBA this year.

    The negativity surrounding coach Macs ability to develop players could really be hurt.

    He really doesnt lack inside moves, the problem is he never gets the ball inside he always gets the ball 15 feet away from the basket and a lot of that is on the guards.

    I think a lot of that is on him too.

    doesnt help when we have an offense that doesnt move at all, makes it too easy for other teams to double team him.

    Gee, wonder if this was a problem on the USA World University Games team? No, they had a motion offense, and Craig impressed everyone.
    To put it succinctly, it's not the player, it's the program, and our offense (or lack of it) that we run.
    I think this team is effectively a prison for #21...

    Bingo. And nobody seals off their players, and little interior screening that isolates Craig and prevents double-teams.

    Re: Brackins

    Hope he has a big 2nd half of the season like last year in conference play. The kid could of gone pro, but came back to play for Iowa State. For that, I respect and root the best for him.

    Re: Brackins

    Ever since we played Saint Louis, we've played like ****...totally undisciplined and sloppy for the most part. Before that, even though it was to bad teams, we did look good with the ball and off the ball..and then BAM it stopped

    I knew I shouldn't have gone. I'm the bad luck guy apparently!

    Then maybe he needs to not post up 10 feet away, and then want to jump out and face up when he catches the ball.
