    I guess I've been living under a rock

    How is it possible that I didn't know that Harrison is Ron Harris' son. Ron is one of my all time favorites. Classic Johnny type of player that played hard and always rose to the occasion. I watched him do a great job of defending Tisdale in Hilton one night. Come on HB - follow the old man and stay home!

    It's probably just that we haven't talked much about Harrison Barnes on this site.

    It must have been a big rock.

    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.

    Ron hasn't been real involved in Harrison's life from what I've read. Honestly, I've always kind of thought that the fact that Ron played here might hurt our chances.

    His name being Harrison didn't give it away? Harris' son = Harrison.

    Re: I guess I've been living under a rock

    I accidentally read the thread title as "I guess I've been licking a rock".


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Re: I guess I've been living under a rock

    Did anyone hear the guy who called into one of the DM afternoon radio shows (don't know which one since I flip around) and say he talked to his dad and he said Harrison was going to go to UNC? I was on the phone while it was on, but that is what I thought was said. Probably nothing (or a hawk fan.)

    I wouldn't believe anybody who says they know anything at this point. Everyone is in the dark and nobody has any inside info. Just wait for friday
