    Can anyone that was at the game (yes, an HB thread)

    Give some description of what the crowd did, his reactions toward it, his reactions toward the game, etc.

    I've been only vaguely interested, but that's spiked in the last week for obvious reasons.

    I was looking more for personal thoughts, reactions, not really specifically wht the crowd did.

    I sit too high up to see much of his reactions, but the students did a great job starting the Harrison Barnes cheers. It wasn't over the top.

    It seems like I've seen him at games for years (really, before I even knew who he was), it's hard to believe that last night might have been it.

    He would smile and wave when Cyclone Alley would chant his name. He gave a fist pump once when he saw a sign that the kid in front of me read "Barnes puts on 4 his city." And on the other side "We Want Barns (two hand drawn barns).

    He said on channel 13 "I think Iowa State will be able to compete in the Big 12 this year. They have alot of new threats on the team."

    Re: Can anyone that was at the game (yes, an HB thread)

    It seemed like the first 5 minutes of the game the crowd was really quiet and sitting on their hands, even when the team was doing well. There was just a sense of "this game is more than an exhibition" type of feel, or at least that's what it felt like to me. Then the students started a few "Harrison....Barnes" chants similar to the Cyclone Power chants and I saw some adults join in as well.

    There were a couple times the students tried to start the chants in the 2nd half and the band started playing or something was on the big screen drowning out Cyclone Alley.

    Regardless, I think the crowd did a good job, although I would've liked to see the adults do some more to get involved.

    I was quiet the first few minutes. This sounds bad, but it was dinner time.


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

    I remember someone saying he had an I-State Tat.

    HB? I thought you were asking about Huston Breshears, who is this Harrison Barnes you speak of?

    My old college roommate's girlfriend's co-worker has an uncle who mops the floors at Hilton and said HB wanted to burn a Duke flag at center court during half-time, but NCAA regulations won't allow this on an "unofficial" visit.
