    So Chris-HB

    I hear you were saying that you heard that Harrison is down to North Carolina and Iowa State with UCLA as your wildcard. I'm curious how much of this is information you've heard from somewhat credible sources and how much is pure speculation. And if you think anything has changed from your previous position that you felt like we had no shot. You've been the one voice that has consistently thought that our chances are slim (not that I don't think you were right, but was a bit curious on why the change).

    I am shocked that more real information hasn't leaked out by now. Harrison has great self control to keep all of this a secret.

    Re: So Chris-HB

    First of all, I didn't "say" that it was down to North Carolina and Iowa State. I said if I had to guess, that's what it would be.

    I could be totally wrong.

    And like I said on the show, I admit that I feel better about this situation now than I did two months ago. There's no reason for me to hide from that.

    Speculation is pretty much what everyone is doing right now my friend. I agree with you about how amazing it is that something hasn't leaked. That's part of the reason why I have changed my tone a bit.

    I've linked the conversation between Steve and me on the front page.

    I'm fully expecting the next week to consist of multitudes of people coming out of the woodwork to insist that their neighbor's dentist's plumber told them HB was going to _______.

    Frankly I'm shocked there hasn't been more of that so far.

    The plumber swore me to secrecy. I'm not authorized to share my insider information until after HB makes his announcement, at which time I will let each of you know that I knew this all along.

    Don't worry. You can thank me later. Like next Friday.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    My cousins friend has a sister neighbor's dentist with a plumber that told them HB was going to North Carolina.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Thanks.......this whole thing is fairly facinating and such a huge mystery. It would be extremely fun if I knew he ended up with the good guys at the end. :)

    And I wasn't trying to say that you shouldn't change your mind, but it did coinside with some changes that other credible (in my view anyway) posters have said on both boards in the last few days, so I find that interesting. In about a week, we've gone from 'Duke is it, get used to it' to 'We're not out of it yet'.

    I have sisters making a college visit to the Music Department today. It is a good thing that I am not going....:)

    Apparently Marty said last night that it is done deal to KU. But given Marty's track record, you can eliminate KU from the discussion.
