    Seriously Jon?

    You said today that Barnes wasn't visiting North Carolina? Sports reporting is your full time job, I'm surprised that you can't get some simple facts straight even if a DM Register article is a little bit confusing.

    He corrected himself in the last 10 minutes of the show...

    God forbid a mistake be made when it comes to HB.

    Mistakes can be made, but I'm thinking on a two hour radio show where an entire segment the subject is talked about, someone could get the facts straight on something that has been common knowledge for almost a month.

    This wasn't Jon talking about who HB's top 2 are and getting it wrong or getting it wrong in my opinion. This was not knowing he had been to North Carolina.

    Congratulations to him. I guess I'm just crabby this morning, but if this was a recruit that Iowa thought they had a chance with rather than one Iowa State thought they had a chance with, he would have the facts straight. And while I realize that he is a Hawk fan first, he is also a sports director at a major radio station. HB is a major story and it is surprising that he doesn't know any facts.

    Re: Seriously Jon?

    Just a suggestion for the OP, there are a lot of Jons....so you might want to add his last name. Assuming you mean Jon Miller.

    Kill John Miller. Kill John Miller. He does not know his HB facts.

    Just joking.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Hey, Miller isn't a reporter, he's a commentator...or he's not a journalist, he's a reporter. No, that's wrong...he's not a journalist, he's a commentator...er...an on air personality? Wait, no, that's not it...he IS a reporter? I know it's something...it's like something that let's him shed any responsiblity for knowing what the **** he's talking about...is that commentator? Maybe it's on air personality?

    **** it, I don't know. What were we talking about again?

    Yes you are just crabby. Who gives a damn if he slipped up on one or two words. Good grief.

    Apparently it's because he knows that HB is secretly on his way to Iowa City right now to sign his LOI to play football for the storied, historically awesome, Pittsburgh Steelers only WISH the could be us, Iowa Hawkeyes.

    Re: Seriously Jon?

    The minute I found out I made the error, I came back on and said as much. I was aware he had been to UNC, I forgot that it was an official visit. That didn't change Steve's opinion that it's 50/50 ISU or Duke.

    Nor did it change my 10 or 15 minutes of talking about why going to ISU would be a great thing for Harrison, because if he goes elsewhere, and say heaven forbid he gets injured, what does he do beyond basketball and what type of support system in the alumni base is there for him?

    Most players don't go pro. HS phenoms don't always draw NBA checks.

    If Harrison commits to ISU, its one of the most important days for ISU basketball in the last 30 years, IMO. Steve agreed. ONE OF, not saying THE most important. Johnny Orr coming to ISU probably tops that list.

    And he would be a beloved ISU figure for his entire life. I contend he would earn a six figure income every year in his life if he committed to ISU, without playing basketball, if it came to that. In this state, former Hawks and Clones do real, real well if they are good people and are not afraid of work, and Harrison seems like he is made of the best possible cloth.

    But, me making an honest mistake is of course the bigger aspect of that 20 minutes of radio.

    Hate on.

    PS: Please feel free to take this back to the love fest on CR. Give them my regards.
