    So what is the deal about HB and his father?

    I wasn't going to ask about this, because it's HB's private life. but given what's happened, screw it. When I get angry at somebody, I get really, really nosy. REALLY NOSY. So I want to know ALL the details. Why did HB and his father not get along? Was it his mom? Usually, even when parents divorce, the kids still associate with both parents. DETAILS, I WANT DETAILS.

    I'm as critical of HB right now as anyone on this board, but I think this is not a good topic to bring up. It's really none of our business.

    I think it's fair to talk about his recruiting and his actions in that regard, but this is too much.

    Re: So what is the deal about HB and his father?

    I am curious about this too now.

    If the kid wants to be all famous and showtime and ESPN, well welcome to showbiz kid.

    Now that it is safe, and the decision is made, does anybody know some details on why father Harris was out of the picture?

    Normally I would agree with you.

    But to quote, well, you, he ******* skyped Roy Williams dude, on ESPNU.

    He decided he wanted to be the center of attention. Can't have it both ways.

    Seriously? I have no idea of any of the details, and I don't really care. Apparently he and his mother have done alright on their own. Not easy to do.

    All I've heard is that he hasn't been around, and that's certainly no reflection on Harrison as a person, but a reflection on his father.

    Well see that is what I am curious about. I don't care about any stupid details that don't matter, or innuendo, I just wonder wth? Ron Harris was one of the players that really turned ISU around, and it is just strange how he apparently is not in the picture at all as a father.

    Joe, I definitely see your point here. As you mentioned in your earlier post, "welcome to showbiz".

    However, I'm going to respectfully disagree. This is about basketball and recruiting to me. Not home life.

    Being a good basketball player unfortunately doesn't automatically translate into being a father, nor does being a nice guy, or anything else. I'm curious as well, but it's really none of our business, and it sounds like it's water way under the bridge for this family.
