    Brent Barz

    So while the Egelseder rumor about the UNI player was not true, there are some very strong rumors going around that Brent Barz of the UNI program has left the team for personal reasons.

    I don't know a thing about the situation, why he left the team (supposedly) or anything else - but if he was looking to transfer I hope he would come to ISU. We need all the big bodies we can get and he could help us down the road. I know he attended the press conference at ISU when Mac was hired. Clearly he likes the guy.

    Re: Brent Barz

    I don't know if Mac would take him due to his ties with Jacobsen. Unless Jake urges him to go to ISU.

    I don't think he's a B12 player either.

    Re: Brent Barz

    Not to be a thread crapper or anything, but I do not like this kid one bit. My brother played with him at Johnston. He would tell me that Barz is the biggest baby when it came to push and shove. And I can attest for that, while going to their games, he would never post hard, nor play ANY defense. He also "dated mary" quite heavily while in HS.
    Now, this might have all changed since he went to UNI, and I hope so, but I would not like to see him in a Cyclone uniform. I wish him the best in the future.

    Re: Brent Barz

    Personally I don't have a problem with him dating some gal named Mary. I don't see why this girl would be all that bad just because of her name. I've met a few girls named Mary in my travels. Some where nice, others were not so nice. Thinking about it, the worst girl I ever dated was named Jessica. She was horrible. I'm glad she's still in jail.

    I would agree, I saw a couple games of his in HS and he was "soft." Who knows after a red-shirt year though.

    According to the link above on the panther board he is still attending classes. Keeps him eligible. Looks to be a transfer situation....

    Re: Brent Barz

    I alwasy thought Barz was the one who was rumored to be transfering. All they said on the radio was a big man from UNI

    Re: Brent Barz

    As I understand it. He didn't make the team, grade, or starting position. (One of 'em... both, or all 3) While he was at Johnston, he harped on how he was going to UNI (period!) But when GMAC came to Ames, he (apparently) had no intension of bringing Barz with him. Which leaves me to wonder, who recruited him? (or who really wants him?)

    When you date mary at that age she is hard to break up with and get over.

    Re: Brent Barz

    Barz got offered by Iowa State when Morgan was the coach. They recruited him pretty hard but he never liked them as much as UNI. He has the offensive skills to be a good player but everyone here is right, the kid is soft. Soft is probably an understatement. He never pins his guy down low which made it hard for him to get the ball in the post. Although he will have to play the 3 in college due to his lack of strength and ability to hit an outside jumper. I also heard that he dated Mary and was very much into her

    Re: Brent Barz

    I would imagine if Barz is indeed transferring, that it would be to a lower division school, otherwise he would lose a year of eligibility. He is redshirting right now and if he transfers to another D-I school he would sit out another year, leaving him 3 to play 3 (like Degand)
