    The Barnes affect if he commits to ISU

    I think about this all the time. If he commits to ISU the vast positives that would come from it along with how it could be a domino of very positive things for the future of ISU. The influence on wins/loses and recruiting would be affected for years.
    I really hope he choses ISU becuase if he is a fan he can make a huge difference himself in the future of ISU BB. 2 years at ISU can help him count his millions when he signs an NBA contract just as good as any of the BB power houses.

    We should start a HB thread counter. I bet we are in 4 digit numbers easily.

    Re: The Barnes affect if he commits to ISU

    Speaking of Barnes, I'm always amazed how unassuming and humble he is. I live on the way between HB's house and Ames High, and when he's in town, I regularly see him walking down the sidewalk to the high school (it's true, he has no drivers license), bouncing his basketball, smiling and nodding at people working in their yard or passerby in cars. I saw it again today. You would never know of his celebrity status, or that very soon he will be making millions.

    Someone start an HB subforum and allow us to opt out of seeing it.

    Get over it, he is not coming to ISU. Why would he? He can go to Duke or NC.

    You need to be an ISU fan longer, soon you will realize, life always kicks us in the nuts.

    Re: The Barnes affect if he commits to ISU

    I'm 99.9% confident he chooses ISU. I don't see how he couldn't.

    I"m about 95% sure he's not coming here.

    I don't see how he could.
