I spoke with Craig last night after the game and he said that he needed to talk things over with his family concerning his immediate future. Sources are telling me today that Craig will in fact go pro and make his announcement within a few days. I'll write more about this later today. This shouldn't be a big surprise to anybody.
I sure hope for his sake that this year hasn't tarnished his draft stock too badly. In retrospect I guess it would have been in his best interest to go last year, but he showed a lot of heart and class coming back. Good luck to him.
I loved Craig and wish him the best. On the other side I really think this team may be better off with he and Marquis not being here. It is not that they were bad players, not by a long stretch. The final few games I really noticed that when those guys either are not in or do not touch the ball, we have a lot more motion and ball movement on offense. I am not faulting these guys because I know they think their job is to score so when they get the ball they are trying to do just that. I know we will now not have a go-to guy but honestly Everyone else on the team kept us in the game last night. Craig had a bad night on both ends of the floor and Marquis, injured or not was not spectacular. I just see this team being much less reliant on one or two people next year and I think the other guys on the team are much better players in that format.
