    Official We Want Harrison Thread

    With all the negativity going on on here, I think we should start an official "We Want Harrison Thread." Preferrably, we could keep this on Harrison, and not delve into Wesley.
    All I have to say on the subject is this:
    Harrison may make or break this program...Harrison we need you!

    How old is Barnes? What year would he suit of for the Clones if he chooses ISU?

    Re: Official We Want Harrison Thread

    He will not break the program. We have to start thinking it is bigger than 1 person. But it would be cool for another Ames hometown kid to follow in Fred's footsteps, things seemed to have worked out pretty well for him.

    Plus as an AHS alum, I like to see my fellow little cyclones become big cyclones!

    Right now, he's the only hope I have to be the Savior of the ISU basketball program. He's a once in a decade player that could be the next big thing. The future of G-Mac will depend on one thing, whether he comes to ISU or doesn't. If G-Mac can get Harrison to commit, it would sure give me something to look forward to.

    If you don't have a man-crush on Harrison, there's something wrong with you.

    I'm 27 years old, so I'd prefer not to talk about my man-crushes on teenage boys on the internet. Chris Hansen is watching you.

    Edit: Please also understand I'm joking Chris Hansen. This has been a long day as it is, and I just want to enjoy my 6 pack of Mike's Hard Lemonade by myself.

    Some serious pressure to put on Barnes.

    I guess that could add to the reasons the kid may not want to come here - the over abundance of "unjust" pressure.

    But then again, he may love that stuff - who knows.

    Re: Official We Want Harrison Thread

    I would like to see Harrison in a Cyclone uniform too. However, I'm concerned with all of the talk about GMac needing to get this kid to secure his job. This is a 16/17 year old kid who, if you believe all the hype, has the ability to play beyond college. He'll likely have offers from some of the NBA factory schools (UNC, KU, Duke etc.) and if he decides to go to one of these, who could fault him? It's a chance to go new places, make new friends and get a lot more national exposure. If he goes elsewhere, there is little else GMac could have done to get him here within the rules. Sure some are going to say he could win more games, which is true, but it's not like GMac doesn't care if we win or not, he's trying to win. And, if you're honest, most of you would have to admit that if you were offered a job out of college from Joe's Computer Shack in Ames and IBM, you would probably go with IBM. This is a decision that will affect this kid for the rest of his life and I don't think we have the right to expect a home town discount. I would love to see him here, but if not, GMac should not be raked over the coals for it.
    Another concern I have is that some people are annointing Harrison as the savior of our program. I wonder if he decides to be a Cyclone if he could ever live up to the hype we've already built up surrounding him. I get the impression that people are expecting him to come in and be an instant all-american, which is very unlikely. Then we'll get threads about how much of a bust he was and GMac should be fired because he couldn't develop this superstar. Let's not scare the kid off with unrealistic expectations and a stalker-like mentality.
    Harrison, if you want to be a Cyclone, we would love to have you and we'll support you and our Clones passionately. If you go elsewhere, good luck to you.

    GO CYCLONES!!!
