    Post Players

    I am liking these recruits TJ and Freddy are bringing in but... We need big post players 6.10 6.11 or above. I mean we only have 2 guys over 6.10 and they don't have much experience at all Jordan Railey 6.10 (Freshman) and Jamie Vanderbeken 6.11 ( 1 year letter winner)...

    Not going to be a problem with our system. We need guys who can run the floor and are athletic.

    Oh your right Iowa State didn't have two last year with Brackins and Dendy.

    and your right the big 12 hasn't been stacked with big men who could run the past few years... Kevin Durant, Beasley, Griffin

    You do realize Beasley went about 6'7" right?

    And Brackins about 6'8"?

    And Dendy was more harm than good in most cases. His defense was awful, and his court awareness was beyond awful. Did he have some great games? Yes, but he also had some beyond terrible games.

    And nice job pointing out a few of the best players in Big 12 history. Why didn't you mention Cole Aldrich? Or Dexter Pittman? Or any of the players Missouri has had recently.

    Brackins, I'm pretty sure was 6'10.

    Well Yahoo has Beasley at 6.10 and the Miami Heat roster have him at 6.10...
    Brackins is 6.10 according to draftexpress.com, cyclones.com, nba.com, ballersnetwork.com

    And I didn't mention Cole Aldrich or Pittman because we are talking about big men that can run the floor.... and they can't

    try emailing the staff, I'm sure it was just an oversight and they can easily have
    their pick of 3 or 4 MCD all-American true Centers before the 4th of July weekend. Probably 1 or 2 stocking shelves at the Windsor Heights Wal-Mart.

    Went to the Elite 8 with tallest starter 6-8. And the Power forward was 6-4.

    Re: Post Players

    Agreed, I'd love to have KG or Gasol but what college did those two attend? Elite big men are rare and we squandered the past two years of Brackins... But we will leave that issue alone.
