    Cyclone Alley help needed

    If anyone from Cyclone Alley reads this, can Cyclone Alley get some Harrison Barnes chants going if he is there today. This kid is an extremely important recruit from right in our backyard and we need to help coach get this kid wrapped up. We have done a great job showing Lucca some love but Harrison has been sitting right next to him for a ton of games this year yet we haven't shown him any love at all yet.

    Thanks!

    If I hear others I will join the chant. I'm not a CA official, just a T-Shirt owner. I like the idea.

    Not calling you out... but does a CA official need to start a chant? If our students are waiting for a CA official to tell them when and what to do, no wonder there are so many problems.

    Agreed. CA officials don't need to start chants. It's just that I'm more of a clapper and OOOOOOHH'er when the opposing teams playing offense. I just seem to strike out when I start chants. I can't even get the people I come with to join in, so I'd say if it were up to me to be responsible for starting a chant, the chances aren't looking good. Anyways, continue on...

    Re: Cyclone Alley help needed

    not sure if that would be the best idea. lets cheer and focus on THIS team that is playing. the atmosphere itself should sell barnes not chants calling him out and tellin him to come to isu.

    Re: Cyclone Alley help needed

    ya i think it would be smarter to worry about the game.. plus HB isnt even a SR in highschool... worry about him later..


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Agree with nickwc and cmoore_23. Let's worry about the team on the court and not a HS Sophmore in the crowd.

    Re: Cyclone Alley help needed

    I think it is a great idea during a timeout or a break... I remember that there were chants for Taggart at a football game and he said that really surprised him and helped his signing and everyone was very excited to have him at the time!!

    I'm sure most of the casual fans in CA don't even know who Harrison is anyway...

    That doesn't matter all you have to do is get a few obsessed CF members to start it!!

    Re: Cyclone Alley help needed

    I think today would be a good day for some "free lucca" chants, since the game is on ABC, and we can get him some more publicity.

    I will be happy if the whole crowd would just show good sportsmanship.

    Re: Cyclone Alley help needed

    Maybe some of you don't follow recruiting that closely but Harrison Barnes is an absolute stud who may be ranked in the top 50 in the nation in his class. I see no difference between a Free Lucca chant and a Harrison Barnes chant.

    I happen to follow recruiting very closely and trust me, chants like that really make recruits feel special. I really think all the love Cyclone Alley gave Lucca helped him to decide to stay at ISU rather than leaving and going back home to Germany. The same can happen with Barnes.

    Like someone else said, I'm not asking for a chant during the game but during a timeout when nothing else is going on would do nothing but help coach Mac bring in a top 50 recruit who is attending 95% of our games.

    I thought Cyclone Alley was fantastic today as was the rest of the crowd. I just think we need to learn how to help our coaches get these studs to come to ISU.
