    Barnes said something interesting on Soundoff

    Harrison Barnes said something I thought was very interesting last night on SoundOff. When asked what he was looking for in a college he said he was looking for two things: 1) A great business school and 2) A school that is ready to compete for a National title. I worry that Duke fits that criteria a lot more than ISU right now. I pray that we can somehow get him as I think he has a chance to be an NBA all-star someday if he keeps improving like I think he will, but I am not very optimistic.

    Duke definitely fits that criteria better than us.

    he has been saying this since the beginning...pretty much the farthest thing from ISU right now

    I fully expect him to go to NC or Duke and I wish him well if he does.....

    I would like to see him go to Oak Hill. This way he will learn what it is like living outside of Iowa and can return for college or choose elsewhere.

    I liked how he said he would go to the college for all 4 years and get his degree.

    Re: Barnes said something interesting on Soundoff

    This is exactly why I said it would be ridiculous to blame McDermott if he went to Duke. Sometimes an offer from Duke is too good to pass up.

    How about getting into the Business of building ISU into a National Champ? Best of both worlds. Sorry, had to distract from all of you packing his bags for the East Coast.

    Re: Barnes said something interesting on Soundoff

    kind of wish that he would just say he was going to Duke so the repeated messages can stop.

    Re: Barnes said something interesting on Soundoff

    I wish it wasn't Duke. Even though it's best for him, I HATE Duke. It makes me sad that I'll have to hope his team loses. But if he wins player of the year, I'll be happy for him.

    Re: Barnes said something interesting on Soundoff

    Funny thing is...Duke doesn't even have a "real" undergrad business program. They have a great Masters/Phd program but the undergrad is just a certificate not a degree.

    I wish him well where ever he goes. But if it's Duke I hope he plays well and the team still loses.

    Re: Barnes said something interesting on Soundoff

    I think it's interesting that he wants a good business school. He said his favorite subject in school was history. I guess I assumed he would go that route. Probably smarter to go the business route though.

    Re: Barnes said something interesting on Soundoff

    If he is looking for a school that has a good business school and has a chance at NC then these schools are better: Texas, UNC and USC.
