    Barnes and his quest for NC

    . . . closer or further away after that fiasco of a performance?

    Or is Karma coming back to bite him again?

    Probably done. Roy Williams historically recruits to make a NC title run every 3-4 years. He factors in who will leave early, who will stay 4, etc. They got bit hard by the injury bug this year, especially in the tournament. With a healthy Henson and Marshall I think they'd still be playing, in addition to a healthy Strickland and McDonald who were lost earlier in the year.

    Sucks for him. However, I don't feel that badly for him.... Will he skype if he's staying or not?


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    Why are people so bent out of shape still about Harrison. If he would have committed here, we would still have McDermott. Would you rather have that than what we have going for us now?

    Best of luck to Harrison. Wish he was a Cyclone, but he's not and I love the guys we have.

    Re: Barnes and his quest for NC

    back to back elite eights at iowa state, HB is a legend, giving freddy a run for most popular player of all time.

    back to back elite eights at UNC, and HB is viewed as the most overrated recruit in UNC history and many UNC fans will think "good riddance."

    It worked out. At least we had a player of similar or greater impact for one year while Barnes might have been playing for ISU.

    It's similar to Hinrich who changed commitment, he was a very good four year player but really not great until his junior and senior seasons. Having Tinsley for two years made up for that one quite a bit in the win column.

    The only thing I wonder about Barnes is if playing somewhere like ISU where he's clearly "the man" might have brought out killer instincts more than UNC. He doesn't "need" that for an NBA career but he needs that more than anything else to have a chance at being an NBA star.

    Except the odds of us making back to back elite 8's if he stayed were about 0.
