    My thread about Harrison Barnes

    Earlier i started a thread that was critical of people worshiping him and making extremely casual remarks about payoffs. The reason i started this one is to say i am like most on here excited to have a local kid rated that high and the fact that ISU has a pretty decent chance of having him play here is great and exciting. The main point i was trying to make was the alarming comments about commiting NCAA infractions. There were made in jest .....most i should say, but with the Staiger situation, Wesley's transfer and all the other b.s. that has happened in the last few yrs ISU cant afford the hint or apperance of impropriety.

    Yeah b/c the NCAA is really going to look into message board posts to see if there has been any improper behavior by ISU. That is probably why they have not come down on USC for the Bush/Mayo incidents yet. It's b/c their message board posters are good at not saying anything that may tip them off!!

    It's a message board. You can make jokes about paying Barnes to come here and ISU will go unharmed. I swear!!

    Re: My thread about Harrison Barnes

    I think we understand your take in the previous thread, but Angie was right to close it because it could have gone down the wrong path with calling out posters. Like a poster stated this is not uncommon at other schools to be excited for a certain recruit that is local.

    My last worry is the NCAA coming down on us due to message board chatter.

    While highly unlikely, I can see where Copen is coming from on this. Wasn't there a school a couple years back that had a minor penalty from the NCAA for what some students had posted on a myspace site?

    K-Y has certainly had its problems over the years also.

    So does HB have a dozen offers by now?

    ISU has people watching this site. I'm not concerned.
