    McDermott and Barnes representing the state of Iowa with conference awards!

    Doug was 1st team all MVC and rookie of the year!

    Harrison was 2nd team all ACC and the only unanimous pick for the all freshman team!

    Also representing Ames High!

    Re: McDermott and Barnes representing the state of Iowa with conference awards!

    Sad that the Ames Gym was the closest either ever got to Hilton Coliseum. Don't know if McDermott ever seriously considered us(definitely not after his dad's debacle). It is UNI fans that should be more upset, as he was directed to go to UNI, and then his dad had to call Jacobsen and say"Hey,on second thought he does want to play for me." Barnes is the giant miss for this program.

    I thought Barnes was an All-American?

    Re: McDermott and Barnes representing the state of Iowa with conference awards!

    Let's keep this respectful, folks. This thread is discussing the accomplishments of a couple of kids who have represented the city of Ames, very well. It's not in the ISU Men's Basketball forum, it's in the General College Sports Forum. Keep your distasteful comments to yourself.

    Thanks.

    yes, but as 30 people will come in this thread an say, if we landed HB we would be stuck with Greg McDermott still. Things fell into place where they should have.

    For another week or so probably after he had another stinker of a season with one of the most highly touted players in the country.

    I used to agree with you, but have heard alot about how big of MJ fan he and his Mom are....When UNC got in the game I think he was theirs to lose. UNI fans that are upset with Doug are being unreasonable.

    I can only imagine the meltdown threads that come from a losing season with the #1 recruit in the country. We'd be ugly (and GMac's coaching would earn that).

    I guess we'd all be having fun this week looking at coaching candidates. Not as much fun as we're having with the Mayor already here, but something.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    And KG would be here to tell us how great McD is and how nobody would ever be willing to take this job because the program sucks so much.

    17-18 PPG does not equal All-American. He is surely playing great right now and has a high ceiling, but for him to be a pre-season All-American was laughable for a freshman that had never played college ball yet.

    Well, by that point, he might be right about the 2nd part.

    I would like to think that if Fred were here for a year or 2 before Harrison and Doug left Ames High, they may be in Cardinal and Gold now.

    Points. Laughs.


    So many fools were ripping him early in the season. All he has done lately is be a big part of UNC winning the ACC. Fancy a freshman would struggle early and then improve drastically.

    Sour grapes are plentiful here.

    17-18 PPG may not, but all those clutch shots he has hit lately might
