    I spoke with Harrison Barnes last night...

    I'll have a complete story up on the site Tuesday...

    Here are a few notes from our conversation:

    1 - Harrison said that Iowa State is still very much in this thing.

    2 - He still plans on deciding in the fall.

    3 - Harrison gave me some insight as to why Oklahoma is still in this thing.

    4 - Harrison has a soft spot in his heart for the Big 12 conference.

    5 - Harrison was quick to credit many current Iowa State players for his development as a player over the past few years.

    A 1 on 1 challenge between Chris and Harrison would be the best VLOG yet!


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    Sorry...I skimmed past that to look for the part that said, "...will commit to the Cyclones soon."

    Didn't see it, though.

    People in Oklahoma know there's something other than football? Seriously?

    I figured you'd have better seats with help from the prince this season.

    Well, I am glad that Iowa State played a part in developing him into one of the top basketball players in the country. When can we send him the bill.

    But has Capel done that? I think OU basketball was much more relevant in the 1980s with Billy Tubbs as coach...
