    Harrison Barnes rally role call

    I know many love to complain about the Harrison Barnes threads "because he's not coming to Iowa State anyway", but would you all at least be willing to try your part to get him to ISU. With all the talk of the UNC's and Duke's impressing HB, why can't we do our part. Is there some way we as Cyclone fans do our part and fill up Hilton on his "unofficial" visit. I mean really let him know that Hilton Magic of old is just waiting in full force to help him as much as possible to win a national title. Anyway would us cyclones fanatics be able to create enough buzz to fill up Hilton for the open practice or whatever they call it to kick off the season and really let Harrison feel the love from cyclone fans that he has never felt before. We need to assure him that cyclone fans are every bit as passionate about basketball as what's their name's fans. And if it doesn't work, at least we tried. So here's my question. Is anyone up for making this happen. Or has everyone already given up. Isn't there a quote out there that goes "be the change you wish to see in the world". My point is if we really want HB at ISU, maybe we should do something about it instead of blaming our coaches or lack of tradition for not getting him. And if he still doesn't come, we move on. But at least we tried. So, who's in and how many more people can you get there?

    Re: Harrison Barnes rally role call

    Even better, how about meeting him at the airport when he returns from his official visits to other schools? A few hundred people at the bottom of the stairs in ISU gear with "We want HB" and "Duke rhymes with Puke" signs is bound to make a great impression. Especially if there's enough folks with band instruments to play "Fights" as he is escorted to baggage claim.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    I like this idea, also. And, it would be easier than trying to fill up Hilton.

    Even though his visit on November 6 is an exhibition game, we need to fill up Hilton with the students chanting "Barnes Barnes Barnes" all game long. Hopefully UNC-Pembroke does not have a player named Barnes. And we need to do the same thing at Jack Trice the following day. But that will be the last of his college visits and since he's already spent a lot of time at ISU, there's a good chance his mind will be made up by then. That's why we need to have an appropriate airport reception to welcome him back to ISU when he returns from all the other visits.

    Harrison will be in Kansas the first weekend of practice for their Midnight Madness.


    Do it for Randle, if we even do have a such event.


    I'll take a Jack & Hilton

    I am well into a few Sailor Jerry's...so I read this as Kansas, Midget Madness-which was amplified by TBS's recent airing of Wizard of Oz. I had to read three times before I realized what the hell you were saying.


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    I think I have come up with a new DUI test btw:
    If Monte makes sense after you have been drinking....don't drive.

    I kid Monte...I kid.

    There are no HB insiders except his Mom. He is being very tight lipped and mature about this whole thing.

    Re: Harrison Barnes rally role call

    We should have a CyBookie on this...

    My guess is ISU or Duke.

    Great post - count me in. I'll do anything I can to support the cause.
