    Thank you Rick Barnes....

    "Unsung hero" might be too strong of a word, but I think that Rick Barnes deserves at least a shout-out from us for helping McD and Craig talk to the right people in the NBA about making the right choice for CB.

    I've always liked Rick Barnes. Does anyone know if he and McD have become good buddies or anything?

    Re: Thank you Rick Barnes....

    I think his wife and Mac's wife were battling cancer at the same time. I might be making that up but for some reason that sounds right.
    I know when they were in Hilton a couple years ago Coach Barnes had nothing but good things to say about Mac.

    I have always respected Texas, and cheered for them when they are on a national stage.. Oklahoma is a completely different story. I'll never cheer for them.

    Very good thing for Barnes to do and also nice for Greg McDermott to give him some credit.

    You also have to give some props to Mike Taylor. Sounds like he is turning into a great kid.

    Yeah I always thought Barnes was a really good guy too. I tend to cheer for them as well.

    Re: Thank you Rick Barnes....

    He's actually one of the main reasons I like Texas, after a basketball game in 2002 or 2003 I can't remember, Iowa State lost and after the game I was heading back to the parking lot and as I was walking back, I saw the Texas team heading onto the bus and Rick Barnes invited us into the bus and talked with my dad and I and let s get autographs. ( including T.J Ford)
