    Four of us are going up to support these guys. I still can't help but feel terrible for both them, they are way to talented to have never had the chance to play in the Big Dance.

    I will show up to my couch at game-time and cheer loudly, assuming there is something to cheer loudly for. That is all I can promise.

    I can't go... sister has a concert I have to go to.. but will DVR the game


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Lost is on. Normally this wouldn't be a problem the game would take high priority, but this puts me in a pickle.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Play next year for a new coach and make the tourney. Kind of like the year Orr left and Floyd came in with Hoiberg, Meyer, U-Lo, Beechum...etc. New coach....some good players....they found a way into the B8 title game...and some NCAA time.

    Honestly, I don't see Brackins getting picked up until after the 2nd round in the NBA draft. His stock has totally declined. New coach can give him new life and a new season.....a more "team-oriented" aspect....and get them over the hump finally...... Or he can have career in the D-League. Pick your poison. (Really, he has to think about it....the posibility of a new coach......wonders, what has GMac really done for me/us? We have gotten worse every year.....come back as a senior in the B12 where a lot of players for the top have of the conf will be gone......could be the best choice for him.)

    Being on a 14-18 team....with lower #s....? Does he think he will be drafted? Craig reminds me of that Skinner that played for Baylor those years when they were just terrible.....but he was a big player in the league. He went 4 years.....got drafted.....could be the same for Brackins.

    Same goes for Gilstrap....although, I think he will be back regardless.....that is...if the NCAA allows another year. For some reason, I think that they will allow it.

    Oh I'll be there alright. I'll be the guy holding up the large sign that says, "Marquis and Craig, thanks for the memories! I have one favor to ask, could you please take your coach with you on your way out of Ames?"

    I just think that these guys owe it to themselves to play their seniors years.....and hopefully they can have better leadership to guide them to success. that is, a new coach at ISU.

    Wow. If people are going to try and give insight into the NBA, one requirement should be to know how many rounds are in the NBA Draft. And for that matter, anything they say about basketball in general, take with a grain of salt.

    No wonder why so many people ***** on here, most don't know what they're talking about, just like to *****.

    Being picked up as a free agent is AFTER the 2nd....and final round. Did you want me to say that smart guy? And yes, that is the best I see going for Craig after this horrible season.
