    Duke fans are getting worse

    than us on this Harrison Barnes deal. If you get a chance go to there free rivals.com board and read some of the stuff. Most consider him a must get. Weird because I don't even think we think he is a must get. I feel he is more of a hope to hell we get.

    Re: Duke fans are getting worse

    KU fans are getting pretty mad at Roy for going after Barnes:

    "Seriously, when did UNC become a player in this race. And why the **** won't Roy leave OUR recruits alone. He wouldn't touch Dean Smith's recruits when he was at Kansas. That is what I hate about Roy. He wouldn't take players away from Daddy Deano to save his life. But now its okay to try taking guys out of our backyard? Larry Brown was a UNC guy, but did that stop him from taking Danny Manning away from the Dean Smith? Nope"

    IDK if the bet was ever made, but if it was and you have such easy access to suckers, PM me. You and I can start making a killing.

    And take your word on the outcome? There's gambling and then there's charity. I'll gamble but I rarely give money away unless it's for a good cause.

    UNC has been involved for as long as I can remember. Not sure why a KU dork could get mad at recruiting unless there was cheating involved.

    Speak for yourself...lives in Ames, grew up a Cyclone fan, has known our coaching staff and players for three years, has gone to tons of Cyclone practices and games, mom works at ISU...yeah, I think he's a "must get."

    Re: Duke fans are getting worse

    I don't consider him a must get at all. If he was ranked 40-50 it would be different because we wouldn't be competing against so many elite teams. If we lose him it will be understandable.

    I do not know if there is ever a must get in basketball, but HB is as close as it gets for me.

    As long as they leave Melvin Ejim alone, they can harp on HB until they are blue in the face.

    I thought KU was more heavily involved before UNC. That said, for fans of a program like KU to say HB is "our" recruit and out of their "backyard" shows how much disconnect there is between the KU, UNC, UK, Duke fans and everyone else. I find it funny (or sad) that this poster probably had not heard of Barnes until last summer, and if HB had committed to ISU early on, KU fans would have never thought two-cents about him at that time. The assumption that KU has put such an investment in HB as a recruit, again illustrates the seperation.

    Re: Duke fans are getting worse

    In the beginning of this whole thing really I didnt think we had any chance at all. He is more than a must get. He wants to win a title. But if we can be a very solid ball club this year our chances are real high I think. The longer were on the list the better.
