    They are preparing him for ISU coverage. =) Just kidding. Seems like a poor choice for clips. The news in sioux city does the same crap.

    You will. The entire university is doing a great job in recruiting HB, from Geoffrey's office on down.

    I agree, and I'll likely want him to succeed in any game he plays that isn't against us.

    But he has to know that he can be a catalyst to restoring Hilton Magic to its rightful place in ISU/Big 12 history, doesn't he? Who wouldn't want to be a part of that?

    Re: Gazette Article About Barnes

    Going to come down to how much attention he wants. If he wants to stay out of the spot light to some degree - ISU is not the place and Duke, UNC, or KU he would just be another McDonalds All American. But at ISU he is going to be embraced as the second coming and be highlighted from Day 1.

    And that just may be one of the reasons he chooses not to come to ISU. I mentioned it last week.

    It concerns me a bit at how much the fans are putting the future of ISU MBB on his shoulders.

    You can try to say it's not happening all you want - but it is. I can pull up countless posts and I hear many conversations about how Barnes could fix this program.

    That's a lot to carry.

    Re: Gazette Article About Barnes

    He does seem very mature beyond his years and I'm glad he had a good time at Hiton on Saturday.

    I wish him nothing but the best - let's just hope he has an urge to represent the 515 by staying at home with the good guys.

    That's very true, but the great ones can live with the expectations. From what I've heard, he has the personality/smarts to be just fine. There are going to be huge expectations on him wherever he goes.

    Go read other message boards. Duke and UNC have more threads about him than we do. Obviously there program is going to be ok with or without him, but there is pressure from every fan base in regards to HB.

    Yes, fully aware. At ISU, it's a program-saving type of pressure - one that many put the fate of Greg's job on. Does any other program on his list have that going on right now? No.

    I too believe Barnes could handle this - just saying - it's a ton to put on a kid.

    Now you're just being silly. :)
