    Duke Offers Barnes

    Apparently it happened last weekend according to some pretty strong rumors on some Duke Boards. It also sounds like UNC has offered or is extremely close to it. I know it was pretty much assumed at some point he would get those offers but it seems like now is the time they are starting to roll in.

    Re: Duke Offers Barnes

    I told the moderators about this earlier this morning but you beat me to making an actual announcement


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: Duke Offers Barnes

    He's gonna get offers from a ton of people. I'm not surprised one bit.

    Re: Duke Offers Barnes

    This doesn't change much, IMO. We knew this was coming with HB's performances lately and his being a rising star.

    I don't like our chances, but it would be GREAT to get him! (Understatement of the millenium.)

    I just hope wherever he goes he commits somewhat soon so the schools that miss on him have the opportunity to get out and recruit some other guys.

    Everyone that can offer, will now. Even if a team like Duke doesnt need him, they will go after him because they can.

    Re: Duke Offers Barnes

    The list of teams that have not offered Barnes is shorter than the list of teams that have, it seems.

    Re: Duke Offers Barnes

    All these schools with money are going to offer him because they just dont want any one else to get him. Let alone a school like Iowa State, because that wont look good when it comes down to grading recruiting classes, because it will say, that a 5 star calliber school, lost a top 10 player, to a 2 star school.

    I think you are reading too much into it. I don't think Coach K is going to offer a highly rated player just so Duke looks bad compared to a lesser school. What if Barnes didn't fit Duke's system or was less than stellar accademically? I don't think Coach K is going to worry about beating out a little guy for that.

    I doubt we even have a chance anymore.

    If Coach K was offering guys for any other reason than he feels they are the best fit then he wouldn't have had as much success as he has had.

    We still have a very good chance. I understand why everyone wants to sound all debbie downer so if he does goes elsewhere you're not as mad...but seriously, our chances with HB are still very solid. I also don't think it does our program a service either.

    Nobody really knows...he's hard to read. Don't think anybody would be happy if the staff just gave up.
