    Coach Barnes

    I didn't realize until watching the news tonight that he was wearing a pink tie today and had his team in pink shoelaces.
    Said on the news his wife was a 6-year survivor. As much as the game stunk to lose, it seemed like pretty classy competition.

    Re: Coach Barnes

    Post game quote from Coach Barnes.....

    HEAD COACH RICK BARNES (TEXAS)
    "I told our players before the game that I wasn’t sure if there is a better-coached team than Iowa State. They always play hard and to their potential. Today, defensively, I thought we were very good. I thought both teams played hard. Coach McDermott does a tremendous job at utilizing his players. We had to make adjustments and they always had an answer."
    "Coach McDermott’s wife and my wife are survivors. Anything we know about breast cancer is good. I was impressed with the Iowa State students wearing pink today."

    Since McD has coached at ISU Barnes always has good things to say about ISU and never in a backhanded way.

    Re: Coach Barnes

    I've never thought he's been that great a coach, because his teams seem to underachieve for the talent they have. They seem to be up and down a lot winning some good games, but losing some they should not.

    That being said, I've always thought he's been pretty classy guy. Respectful of other teams and their fans.

    I still remember being at a Texas game back in the Fizer days when he came to Ames and we kicked their butt. He looked up at the crowd and I really think he was awe struck how loud we were.

    That pink idea was a great one to raise breast cancer awareness. It did drive me crazy though because I kept thinking there was something wrong with the tv before remembering it was the pink night.

    Re: Coach Barnes

    You do realize that this pink deal to raise awareness of breast cancer is a national thing...not just an ISU thing...don't you?



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Re: Coach Barnes

    Last year, there were something like 150 teams doing the "think pink" campaign across the country, this year there is something close to 750+ participating. The college I work at has jumped on board this year as have many others. I think it is a great thing for college teams to participate in. Definitely shows that there are more important things in life than sports.

    Re: Coach Barnes

    I have always thought of Texas as one of the classiest teams in the Big 12. That is pretty impressive considering the talent and high level of play they have year in and year out. It would be pretty easy for them to become cocky and arrogant, but I have never noticed that about them.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    The pink was great....my eyes kept seeing pink, to the point that I thought our uniforms were pink on TV.

    Re: Coach Barnes

    I love the fact the teams are raising awareness about breast cancer. The day of the texas game, about 10 of us in the DECA organization at Ames High went out to the local grocery stores and set up stands with brochures and pens, etc., to try and raise awareness. We made over 2,000 dollars in donations on saturday.

    Re: Coach Barnes

    Texas and Barnes have been a very classy organization since Rick came there. His times are always top-notch, and well coached I always root for them in NCAA tourney's.

    The Pink out was crazy it was so pink for a moment i swore the ISU jerseys were pink but that was just the reflection. Awesome job on the Pinkness.
