    Can there be a comparison between Barnes and Jeff Horner?

    It might be apples and oranges to a certain degree, since Horner was from Mason City, but it seems that in terms of talent level and number of recruiting stars that they might be comparable. I remember after Horner signed with Iowa that my dad told me that he thought ISU and Eustachy had taken a step back to Iowa. I guess that is a subjective opinion, but he was pretty bummed about Horner signing with a different team.

    God forbid that Harrison Barnes sign with Iowa, but even if he does sign with a different program, how much of a PR hit would it be for McDermott and Iowa State?

    Not really comparable. And how did we take a step behind Iowa? We signed the best player of the class easily in Haluska.

    I really try not to think about him going anywhere else, but here. I really can't see it. Some might disagree, but he IS a MUST get.

    If he plays in Iowa I am pretty sure it will be at ISU, that said I doubt he willbe playing college ball in Iowa. I hope I am wrong, but I don't think he will be playing in around here.

    Horner might be the better spot up shooter but I think Barnes is a much better athlete from what I have seen. So, no.

    Are we talking about looks or physical skills? Joking aside Barnes is the far superior athlete. Horner is a basketball player, Barnes is an athletic basketball player.


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

    Another thing they both have in common.....they both have absolutely NO CHANCE in beating me in arm wrestling.

    Also, they both are excellent at growing beards.
