    Seriously, guys. How about I just make it easy on you and just have you come and kick me in the crotch instead of posting all of this crap?

    What makes him more special than all the other #1 recruits to make the pre-season All American team in past years?

    You know that we would if we could, but even the Internet is limited.

    Re: Speaking of things that make you throw up

    If Fred would have been here 2 years ago he might not have been ready and certainly wouldn't have Lutz on staff. I'm fine with where we are at and where we are going and who is on the staff. HB can be the besat player ever and it wpon;t bother me. I can't blame him a bit for not wanting to play for Mac. His head got a little big but mine would have also.

    I didn't read it either. I hope I didn't just go completely off topic. :)

    Re: Speaking of things that make you throw up

    Honestly, I still doubt that it'd make a difference if Freddie had been here 2 seasons ago.
    It's a different generation and definitely a mindset. I don't know what's on HB's mind. If he wants to go to win National Championship, going to UNC will be a good choice. If he wants to go to a good accounting program: UNC is a good program too
    If he wants to be in a storied program: UNC is also a good choice.

    Will you guarantee that he'd want to work with a rookie coach ? Let's be honest: we don't know how good Freddie as a HC and you have Bill Self, Roy Williams and Coach K ?

    Re: Speaking of things that make you throw up

    I think it's BS to think that Barnes chose North Carolina simply because McDermott was the coach, and extremely presumptuous to think that he would have turned down UNC if Hoiberg were coaching ISU. I mean, it was freaking UNC that was courting him.

    I think far too many people let their cardinal colored glasses get in the way of common sense here, especially when they say "if I was in HB's position I would have chosen ISU over UNC." Bull****. If you were in HB's position, you would have chosen UNC as well.

    I also get tired of the BS "well, if HB had chosen to come to ISU he would have been 'the man'. Now he's just going to be 'just another player at UNC'". You know why that statement is so BS? Because he hasn't even played 1 minute for UNC yet and he's ALREADY "the man" there.

    Some people just refuse to admit that once UNC and Duke came courting that ISU was out of the picture, and McDermott being the coach had very little to nothing to do with it. Even the great Johnny Orr would not have kept HB in Ames once they came calling.

    Re: Speaking of things that make you throw up

    actually, choosing UNC has somewhat backfired on HB. UNC is going to get killed by Duke, and rather than being one of several studs on a national championship contender, HB really is the man, and he'll have the entire program on his back as they try to justify a top 10 ranking. they have zero big guys and a suspect PG. HB may still be good enough to pull it off.

    I imagine ANY coach since Orr would have landed him--other than Mac anyway.
