    Harrison Barnes over seas?

    I was listening to Doug Gotlieb today and he was talking about Brandon Jennings and his progress by going to Europe to play versus college. I know we all want HB to come play for the good guys but does anyone think he would be better served to play overseas for his one year than college? He would make 200K, I think that was what Gotlieb said, learn the European style of play and get paid to live overseas. In one year he will not get much education and playing in any league is not comparable to playing against pros even if they are in a lower league. I think its the best idea for any of the one and dones. Most will go to a school trying to win an NT and then move on. How many times has that happened? Carmelo is the one that comes to mind but that is it. I know others have tried and gotten close but most have not. Any thoughts on this?

    he wants his education so no go


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: Harrison Barnes over seas?

    IIRC, Jennings decided to go overseas because his test scores were not good enough to qualify.

    No - that's why those of us with a rational head get to laugh at all of these HB threads.

    Re: Harrison Barnes over seas?

    Given the literally dozens of interviews in which HB has said he wants to go to a school to get a good education, I'm gonna bet on one thing: This is one of the worst threads ever.

    Re: Harrison Barnes over seas?

    Okay, try reading it again. Did I ever say Harrison was going to do this? NO I said I thought it had merit. Why is he going to college? For a degree? He wont need a degree for years and will have millions to go to any college of his choice. The experience he gains in playing overseas far outweighs a freshman year of college taking probably 12 credits and not learning much. Some of you need to get off your high horse and read the entire thread before typing.

    Re: Harrison Barnes over seas?

    Okay, lets try this again. Forget HB. Do you think it makes more sense to play overseas for a year and get THAT education or go to college for one year and score a few credits and then go pro?
