    Hypothetical Question

    Would you rather

    a) have Brackins stay all 4 years

    b) get a commitment from Barnes, keeping in mind he will probably only be around a couple years

    Re: Hypothetical Question

    Barnes would have better players surrounding him for those two years than Craig has hadd for two years.

    We would have a much better team and thus I would rather have Barnes. Plus it would help recruiting for years to come

    I want option three, Craig to stay all four, and Barnes on board too.

    Kinda like that idea myself - a little changing of the guard if you will.

    This is the choice I would vote for.

    Re: Hypothetical Question

    I'd say getting Barnes. It would show me that McD can recruit players in his own backyard and compete in recruiting with the likes of all the traditional powers Barnes has offers from. It would also show that people, other than us die hard fans have faith in what he's doing, his plan, and his style.

    Of course the said "option 3" would be what everyone would vote for and then it wouldn't be much of a poll.

    Now I'm waiting for the "if we had Barnes, we win that game" thread.

    Probably right after the "we win that game with Wesley" thread.

    Both of which may be very true, just not proven. I think I've mentioned one of them my own self.

    How could you not want a guy for two more years that is producing 20+ and 10+ a night? What do people expect Barnes to do? There is no way Barnes does 20 and 10 out of the gate. I agree Brackins for two more is a better hypothetical deal.

    Since we are ISU, what really happens is Brackins leaves early and we get no Barnes.

    I find this post near foolish. We all know Barnes is going to be great, but to choose an unproven player over someone that has already proven himself to be great seems slightly over the top.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Hypothetical Question

    would i be greedy to ask for both? 1 year with the lineup of Colvin, Garrett, Staiger, Barnes, and Brackins...with JH, CB, Eik, L.A. and CM off the bench...sounds nice
