    i hope craig and gilstrap go pro

    probably not a popular thought, but i am totally serious. i feel bad for both of them. they are both too talented to have to suffer through another season like this one. sure-they could get drafted by a horrible team, but at least they will be getting paid.

    i am starting to wonder though if craig will-his stock is falling by the day.

    gilstrap i think for sure goes-his stock seems to be rising by the game.

    last year i was selfish and wanted him to come back. while that would be nice to happen again, i don't think it makes a real big difference to the outcome of next season. he might as well bail.

    AT THIS POINT, I'd like to see CB go pro and Strap stay.

    Gilstrap I feel for. Craig has not brought the same effort as he did last season and I'm struggling to feel sorry for him.

    He excelled on about the same team last year and is struggling this season, with better people around him.

    Re: i hope craig and gilstrap go pro

    At this pace Craig won't be inside the mid 2nd round if drafted at all. He has no position. If I am a GM, I honestly would not draft him. He is the type of guy who is drafted and never produces ala Adam Morrison, Darko Millicic, Andris Biedrins, and that sort. Not big enough inside, not good enough outside. Unless something happens I think he will come back. Gilstrap, on the other hand is working himself up farther with every game and I think he has to go. He has family to worry about and he is already to an age where it starts counting against you in the draft. My prediciton-Craig is back, Gilstrap is gone.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Highly doubtful...Brackins is gone. Only chance would be for him to declare for the draft and then withdraw his name. FWIW, unlikely based on the feed back I got.

    Do you think he is drafted for sure?

    If they both come back, next year could be a good year. It would just about make us a lock for the NIT.

    Re: i hope craig and gilstrap go pro

    I think Brackins is mentally gone...He is having a rough season compared to last year at this point. His defense and rebound are really weak, and often hurt this team...

    I have this feeling. I think Gilstrap really wants that degree and so does CB. CB's stock has dropped and there is no guarantee he will make big bucks.

    Now don't be putting the horse in front of the cart. I would say we would lock up a 9-12 seeding in the B12 tournament though.

    I don't know man, returning our current starting 5 could really give us what it takes to get to the NIT next year. I think it would be a lock, might need to win one game in the Big 12 tourney tho..

    Provided Gilstrap is granted another year, I think both will be back. Brackins should probably come back also, his draft position is not what it once was.


    Go Cyclones!!

    I can certainly understand him wanting to jump at this point, but if he isn't projected to be drafted at the end of this season what choice does he have? With his size/skill tweener issue combined with a less than impressive conference season so far, he could very well end up leaving for nothing.

    Hate to say it but everyone thought we were a lock this year too, so I've learned being a fan is that we are never a lock for anything.
