    I suddenly don't have as negative feelings towards Texas A&M as I did earlier today.

    Nebraska has gained some ground as well....

    Re: Another Big 12 Preview

    Hello gentleman, glad you seem to be liking the blog (or at least the pictures). My brother is an ISU grad, so they've always been my second favorite team behind the Gophers (we were at the game where Jake Sullivan almost single-handedly beat Kansas).

    What's the feeling in Ames regarding Barnes? From an outsider and from what I've heard, it sounds like ISU is still on his list more as a courtesy than anything else. What do you guys think? I'd love to see him end up in Ames.

    It's all over the board. No one really has any clue and he is playing things close to his chest.

    I think ISU has a LOT better chance then any outsiders actually know. We haven't moved on scholarship wise from what I know and Barnes and McDermott's son are friends and teammates. I'm sure Coach would be bummed if he went elsewhere but I also think he'd wish him nothing but the best.

    Come to think of it there really isn't any point to him keeping us as a "courtesy". I mean really it doesn't benefit him any and doesn't benefit us (if we need to move on and look at a different recruit). I think we're very much in this thing otherwise we'd be off the list.

    Barnes considered ISU more than a courtesy, but you are right. He has a great relationship with the players on the team. It is looking like he will probably not be a Cyclone.

    The only reason I'd question this is that from what I've read, admittedly though it's not that much, he sounds like a pretty emotionally mature young man. In that case, I can see him not being able to quite bring himself to tell everybody he's not going to be staying in Ames, even if he knows it himself.

    Also, there's this guy I sort of know who claims to have very inside Duke information. He says that Kyrie Irving will be committing to Duke by Thursday, and Barnes will be right behind him. This guy is pretty much a *********, but he seems to be right most of the time.

    I think the only people who would really care enough to be upset are us. His friends and classmates are just that...friends. Heck, probably 80% of them are going to schools that aren't name "ISU".

    Nice, until you get to the bottom and Nebraska basketball of course ruins it.
