Bruninga has scored 3 or fewer points in 8 of his 15 games this far...

But donít forget, Bruninga also had 14 against Florida Gulf Coast , 20 against BYU, and 14 against Indiana State. Those are good numbers for a true freshman. His recruitment would have been a big win for whatever school he would have chosen. Glad he chose ISU.

Remember they are trying to run a kid in the ground who didn't choose their school. Can someone give me a quick update on all of Bradley's freshman numbers?

Bradley's freshmen are doing fine but don't you guys have enough issues over there with ISU fans actually calling half their own roster unfit for DI without coming onto your rivals' board to troll?
..so every time we post the simple stats for an ISU player it constitutes trying to run him into the ground?

I joined this board because I like to talk basketball with like minded fans, similar to what I do at the Pekin holiday tournament with my other retired friends. Since the time of my joining, I have never attacked any individual Bradley players. To do so, in this old guyís opinion, would be petty and demeaning. Yet I continue to see cheap shots spewn forth against a small town kid. Why? I was out at Illini Bluffs when Porter Moser and an assistant were there to recruit Bruninga. They didnít get him, but do you think the Loyola forum, if there is one, continues with a vendetta against the kid? In the words of Rodney King, ďCanít we all just get alongĒ? There is no need for vitriol. Itís college basketball. Letís enjoy it.

Don’t say “they”. Only 1.

What gives you the belief we "lost" him? I have never seen anything concrete that we were recruiting him. We had two openings, and had commitments from Childs and Stipo.

Even if BU didn’t recruit him I still say give it up he went to isu.

I may be wrong but I don't think we offered. Wish we had but I don't think so.

I have never attacked the kid - so give it up on the BS that I have - heck, as I posted once before- I am even distantly related to the kid thru my wife's grandfather...I harbor no ill will, just offering facts & stats to counter the over-the-top hype that the kid had NBA potential and was as good as Alec Peters...
I like the kid and hope he does great- but he would have benefited from a redshirt year just like virtually everyone who knows college basketball, every recruiter and every school that recruited him already knew despite the unreasonable hype.

I think even Muller knew that and would have redshirted him except he's desperate for any healthy body over 6-6.

Will you please point out the "cheap shots spewn forth" and "vitriol" that you claim to have seen? As the primary moderator, I would not be likely to allow cheap shots or vitriol spewn at any players.

And for the record, your suggestion that Bradley fans are petty and demeaning because "they didn't get him" is absurd. Bradley never offered Bruninga, and never seriously recruited him.

YATittle, I would like to say I appreciate your contributions to this board. I have never seen you attack Bradley. You bring additional knowledge to this board.

and I don't think anyone has ever said you did...I am not even sure why you feel the need to defend that point...
but Bradley fans who are pro-Bradley and NOT pro-ISU need make no apologies on their own message board.
I have never seen anyone even hint that ISU fans need to be kind to Bradley....least of all on their own board and, of course, they are NOT..
Heck, ISU fans are far harsher towards their own players than anyone here is towards anyone.
