    Re: Official HB Decision Day Thread

    This whole saga is all I can think about.I told myself I wasnt going to get wrapped up into it....but I have.
    I even had a dream about it last night.For some reason it was held at Vet's in DSM.
    Vitale and the crew was there from ESPN and Johnny Orr was there doing a stand up bit telling jokes.Wierd.
    The best part?
    HB made it sound like it was down to Duke and NC.Right when he was going to announce,he said "But I've been a Cyclone my whole life and I can't change now!''
    He pulled out his ISU hat and the place went nuts.

    Then my wife woke me up because I was yelling in my sleep.

    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.

    Good friends with ISU players (especially Brackins)? Check
    Plays with ISU players in pick up games in offseason? Check
    Has seen the Hoiberg start treatment in Ames? Check
    Wore an ISU sweatshirt two days before signing? Check
    The public is allowed at his signing? Check
    It's the same day as Iowa State's opener? Check (Duke opens too tonight)

    I really have no idea but the factors are adding up in our favor IMO. The biggest thing is allowing the public at his signing. I'm sure his mother knows that there will be backlash if he doesn't choose ISU. Keeler can tell people not to boo but when you have a packed house of passionate cyclone fans and he announces UNC, negative feelings will prevail and it won't be pretty.

    My prediction.... Barnes to ISU. HUGE celebration at the basketball game tonight that flows into tomorrow.

    Could be the greatest Iowa State Cyclones weekend EVER!
    To me most of this stuff seems like no big deal given that he lives here. He's be silly not to take advantage of the local U and ISU would be silly not to help him out in case it helps. As of now I don't think it means a thing. I can't see him staying. Hope though that I'm wildly off base!


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    I can see that stance and it does make some sense. But to say Iowa State had no chance at all, I don't think so.

    The basketball manager doesn't know anything. My sources don't know anything and I would venture to guess they know more then a manager.

    Just sounds like the guys who aren't getting their hopes up. No way the managers know anything when nobody else does.


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

    Re: Official HB Decision Day Thread

    Can anyone give me a rundown of the whole HB saga? When did he come on our radar, did we know how good he was right away, when did we offer, when did the big boys come calling, ect.?

    If I am not mistaken he was offered first by us when Barnes was a freshman.

    Barnes was close to committing (read that somewhere) but was encouraged by his AAU coach (Sullivan at the time) to look around a bit. Then he blew up.

    Re: Official HB Decision Day Thread

    My stomach is in knots; don't know why because mentally I've been preparing for North Carolina.

    Then I have to go a see the Betting Board and all my Cyclone homies drop 2.5 Billion on Iowa State.

    We were the first team to offer him (I think) after his freshman year. I don't know for sure, but I'm guessing the big boys started calling after his sophmore year.
