    Hmm..Doesn't sound like HB signs in Nov anymore...

    Top-ranked Barnes is done for July - CBSSports.com

    Latest blog update from Gary Parrish has an interesting tidbit from every cyclone fan's favorite mom :)

    Oops, forgot I'm not allowed to post a link w/out my opinion. I have no idea if the clones will be able to win this battle in the end, but the HB recruiting story has been quite the saga. I know he'll make the best decision for himself in the end. Hope we can be there in the end......

    Having him visit during football season would have actually helped us if he visited Duke, KU, UNC

    Re: Hmm..Doesn't sound like HB signs in Nov anymore...

    It's totally ISU and GMac luck that we finally have one of the best HS basketball players in the entire country right in our own backyard and his Mom even works for ISU, but of course he ends up being SO good that the entire country has found out about him, so our chances are very slim.

    Had HB not risen to such a high national ranking... he'd be ours EASILY. But that's not ISU luck. I wouldn't blame HB for going to Duke, NC, or Kansas before ISU. He has to do what is best for him. I hope if he doesn't choose ISU that he goes to Duke or NC and not Kansas though. I don't want to face him twice a year.

    The best Christmas present ever for me would be for us to beat Duke in Chicago and HB committing to the good guys right after the game. How awesome would that be?

    I think that him signing in Spring actually helps ISU. IF GMac can put together a decent season, that is the proof that HB could need to show that he can win at ISU.

    I like that he wants to see how the coaches are in action. I'd much rather go watch a game of the sport I am playing than some other sport hosted by the school.

    It's amazing how a person who is always making instant decisions on the court has the patience to take his time and make sure he's confident in his choice of school.

    Hope he chooses ISU! I am 100% positive it was the right decision for me!

    You wouldn't blame him for going someplace else? Are you insane? His mom is employed with I.S.U., I.S.U. has been after him for how many years already before his reputation became so big, he plays with present I.S.U. players, he plays at Hilton & you still wouldn't blame him? If he doesn't choose I.S.U., he can be a little fish in a big pond, or if he chooses I.S.U., he can be a big fish in a little pond. If you try and give m the excuse about well, if he wantsto play at the next level, no! Fred Hoiberg had a nice NBA career, Jeff Hornacek, Marcus Fizer all went to I.S.U.
    Look at the impact MF made at I.S.U., we were so close to a national title (had we not been screwed over by the refs vs. MSU). HB can do the same at I.S.U. with good role players.

    #1 His reputation has been big for awhile.
    #2 I don't think he's ever played at Hilton.
    #3 He's going to be big wherever he goes. He's the #1 recruit in the country!
    #4 MF isn't MF without JT.
    #5 He's still gotta do what he thinks is the best for him. If he wants a national title shot and doesn't think he'll get it here, he needs to go somewhere else.

    There is no place he would be "bigger" at than ISU.

    Will he be huge here? Yep. Will he be huge at Duke? Yep. Will he be huge at North Carolina? Yep. Will he be huge at Kansas? Yep. Will be be huge at Wartburg? Yep. He's going to be the man wherever he chooses to go.

    Except after back to back 10 point performances in the ACC, the Duke or NC fans will be all over him.

    Of course he will be huge. But there's a big difference between "huge" at those places(other than wartburg) than at ISU. He's just another good player at Duke. He's just another good player at UNC. He's just another good player at Kansas. At ISU he is the star. I realize he wants a championship which he continually states which kind of makes you think otherwise but it would not suprise me if in the end he commits to Iowa State. The longer were on the list the better. As the case would be for any team but I just dont see him having Iowa State and UNC for example as the final 2 and picking UNC. That would just be heartless to ISU fans IMO lol. And that is not funny but I would hope if he knows ISU isn't for him just to let us know right away which he probably will instead of dragging it on... like I am this reply.

    No doubt he would be a huge addition but he won't be "the man" here. GMac's offense will still make Brackins the top offensive option.

    It would be a miracle to see Brackins stay for his senior year.

    He would of most likely been a lottery pick this year. Why stay 3 if your not staying 4? If ISU can get a commit like barnes there is no way he would leave. His stock would only continue to rise with teams having to plan for someone oter than just him.
