    LOVE IT! 4 Guards coming in at:

    The way to win in the Big 12 and in the NCAA is BIG Guards who can handle the ball and score...seems like we are on our way!!

    Not to mention one of the highest rated players ISU has ever signed in 6'10", 220 lb Craig Brackins! This coming basketball season is going to be much better than last year's team, IMHO!

    Like Sherron Collins and D.J. Augustin? :)

    My point is that super-fast ball handlers can be just as effective or more effective than bigger, slower guards.

    Re: Finally...official word that Brister signs with ISU

    I understand the recruits we have are "all on paper," we haven't played a game yet, and "paper doesn't win ballgames," but does anyone else think that GMac has answered the question as to whether he can recruit?

    Me thinks so...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Good point ability has little to do with size. Especially in basketball.

    Is it just me, or does anyone else find the name fo the school that Craig Brackins comes from alittle odd. The "Boys to Men Academy" I just can not get the rap / r&B group from the early 90's out of my head.



    32 years later and I am still riding on the back.

    I'm with you, redrocker. I wonder if the school's fight song is "I'll Make Love To You."


    Forever trying to find a cure for the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

    If you recall, there were games were Taylor couldn't an outside shot off. Why was that? It was against teams that had 6'3" + guards. Tall guards are a positive and results are more steals as the clog the passing lanes and they make it hard for the opponents to get clean looks.

    Exactly Especially in McD's system.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Brackins actually went to Brewster Academy last year. He left B to M because it wasn't very legit.
