    What would be Barnes' nickname (if he committed to us)???

    Hypothetical Question: Harrison Barnes commits to ISU... what would be his nickname (if any)?

    Obviously we can throw "The Mayor" out of the running.

    My thoughts:

    I think it would be cool if it were something like "The Advantage".
    Because no matter who we play... Iowa State will always have The Advantage. (The Edge sounds cooler... but Edgerrin James had to steal that one)

    or

    'Hard Ball' to play off of Harrison Barnes

    Disclaimer:

    I'm not trying to jump the gun and set a nickname in stone for a young man who has not even committed to us. And I realize that pegging somebody with nickname before they even set foot on campus is just putting unnecessary pressure on that person. I am just trying to start an enjoyable thread for people to discuss some fun nicknames that hopefully someday in the future we might see one of them given to Harrison. If you don't have anything positive to contribute... please do not contribute.

    I'm thinking something meteorological, i.e. Cyclone-related:

    How about "F-5", because he is THE most dangerous Cyclone ever.

    I would be a fan of 'hometown hero' personally. Keep it simple. Perhaps 'the bouncer' would work as well.

    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'
