    Who would you rather have?

    I was thinking the other day about what if Harrison Barnes had committed to ISU. If he had, there would be no way McDermott would have taken the Creighton job. So, would you rather have gotten Barnes and have McDermott stay or do you think it worked out well for everyone? Personally, I think it worked out pretty good for us. McDermott had an NBA player with Brackins and we all know how that worked out for us. Fred has a bunch of talent coming in next season and we should be in the top half of the league with an NCAA bid if everyone plays well together

    Re: Who would you rather have?

    Well, I would take Hoiberg because I would take White and Allen for a year over Barnes for a year.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Same here, barnes would have transferred by the end of the year just like the other +15 players did under Gmac.

    I would choose Barnes of course I had kids go to school with HB and would have liked to continue to watch him play. That being said I am in no way disappointed in the way things are going with Fred at ISU.

    What scenario do you think would have sold more tickets this year, HB and DMac or Fred?

    How many times are we going to have this thread? Rather have Hoiberg of course. Too bad Harrison isn't 2 years younger. I bet he would want to play on next years team.
