    3 Reasons Harrison Barnes Won't Come To ISU

    First, he's winner. He will go somewhere that has a shot at winning it all.
    Second, teammates. Even if Brackins stays all four years, Harrison would only get one year with him. I don't think he would be enough of a recruiting tool to put together a title type team.
    Third, coaching. Barnes has the best all around game of any recruit in several years according to many. He has also made it clear that he prefers a run-an-gun style of play. Has anyone seen ISU play under McDermott?? Our offense consists of a few ball screens, maybe one or two baseline cuts, and if we're lucky a dish out to a three point shooter from a big. I suppose last year it was Brackins or nothing. HB has also stated the importance of a coach's ability to prepare him for the NBA as a factor in his decision. I am a HUGE ISU bball fan but i'm sorry, Greg McDermott is not that. I will no place my vote for a new coach please, Mr. Pollard. Greg is a nice guy but his style will never work in the Big XII and he can't recruit well enough to fill our voids. Peers, please realize that this is my call to action for the current staff LOL

    This guy starts one thread to ask for access to a proprietary article and then another to flame on McDermott / HB. Since when did this site start attracting so many trolls?

    I think he thought he was on the trollernet.

    Maybe we should blame that feature on TV13 again

    You mean like Mike Taylor. It was also a good possibility that Brackins would have gone pretty high. If Wes Johnson would have stayed, he might have been drafted this year. It doesn't matter where you go, the NBA will find you if you're that good.

    Re: 3 Reasons Harrison Barnes Won't Come To ISU

    I just remember those "Top 3 Reasons Why Craig Brackins Will Be Leaving ISU For The NBA" threads from months ago. Yeah, I remember how that one turned out...

    Maybe Harrison Barnes isn't coming to ISU. But in the meantime, you can stop acting like a dolt with your meaningless reasons as to why Barnes isn't coming to ISU because all you end up doing is looking like an ******** in the process...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Re: 3 Reasons Harrison Barnes Won't Come To ISU

    People like this love to troll and post a bunch of negative banter, and then pile on when what they predict comes true. If they are wrong you will likely never hear much from them about it again. If Harrison does come to ISU and we have a successful program, you'll probably hear him in the future praising Allah about the greatness of Greg McDermott and Jamie Pollard for hiring such a fantastic coach.
