    Can we borrow Gene's limo for HB's official visit?

    "If his commitment were to complete the ultimate fantasy of ISU fans it would happen along with the return of Craig Brackins for his senior year, and an extra year of eligibility for incoming 2009 juco Marquis Gilstrap…potentially making ISU a national title contender itself."

    Chills. Anyone else?

    Also, would have a ton of experience in the guard court. Highly unlikely all of that happens, but it would be fun.

    Re: Another Barnes Thread

    I'm sure those players have thought about it, but I still doubt it happens. Maybe Barnes is taking his time because he wants to know if Gilstrap will get a second year?

    I would guess it's more about Brackins...

    I heard it is more about whether or not Battles BBQ will pay Uncle Same and re-open.

    Really? You think Harrison will look if Brackins is likely to stay? Is there any chance that Brackin actually stays another year?

    The amount of pressure this year on the basketball team is tremendous.

    I know they talk...Why is there more pressure than any other time? Expectations are higher for themselves, if that is what you were referring to.

    No. I don't believe for a second that CB will be back.

    It's okay to fantasize. You're so serious, all the time.

    I would not be shocked if CB stayed his last year.

    I will not be shocked when HB becomes a Clone!

    I would be shocked if Gilstrap got a 2nd year.

    Brackins future is in his own hands and he can decide anytime. Gilstrap's future is up to the NCAA.

    Re: Another Barnes Thread

    I'm pretty sure I just wet my self thinking about if Barnes committed, Brackins stayed for his Senior year and Gilstrap got his second year. Thats a guaranteed top 15 team.

    I read every one; I read every thread. It never gets boring and I will continue to do so unless he officially commits to another school...
