    Are we playing for more than a W tomorrow?

    What if tomorrow's winner is a front-runner for HB's services? My simple mind sees it as the winner gains an inside track to get Barnes 2 years from now. I personally think he wants to stay closer to home than a UNC or Duke, and so he would pick between his home town team he grew up watching or the perennial NC contender in the Midwest, KU.

    So if we win this game given both teams youth, would that lead to another reason for Barnes to lean our way. Add him to either team to take them to the next level. Thoughts.......

    yes, but i think it is more to do with pride and to establish home court as a weapon again.

    Re: Are we playing for more than a W tomorrow?

    I don't know if tomorrow will decide much, but a win couldn't hurt our chances...I'd be interested to know if he's rooting for anyone in the game tomorrow, or just remaining neutral.

    I can handle him not going to ISU the only place I don't want to see Barnes is at KU.

    If it was between only us and Kansas I would agree. But I think both UNC and Duke are ahead of Kansas right now.

    Amen brother. I am tired of going to a half empty quiet arena. If tomorrow isn't sold out and loud I will be completely embarrassed. You know the announcers will talk about the "magic" and I don't want a nation to see how poor it has been lately. I miss the old days...which for me was late 90's and early 00's, when it was deafening and everyone was on their feet 75% of the game.

    The magic potion....WINNING...win and the Clone fans will come out of the woodwork.

    I am unable to make it tomorrow due to work, but for those of you who are going...get loud and stay loud. We need to rattle their young guys and show them how tough it will be in Ames for their next four years.

    Re: Are we playing for more than a W tomorrow?

    I want to agree about UNC and Duke, but I think when push comes to shove, he'll stay closer to home even if it isn't ISU. I don't think his mom is going anywhere and I think that is a bigger factor than others would believe.

    Re: Are we playing for more than a W tomorrow?

    I would find it hard to believe that a potential player would choose one school over another based on one game - unless it was down to those 2 teams and it was a national title game, and the players playing the same position said after the game they were leaving to turn pro.

    Yeah, my buddy that works at Prairie Meadows saw Roy Williams playing craps early this afternoon. He is going to the game tonight I guess. My buddy thought he was playing craps with Danny Manning but he wasn't sure. That would make sense since Manning is in town for the ISU game tommorrow.
