    Shirley's quote about Roy

    I'm just having trouble deciphering her comment this afternoon:

    "I'd say North Carolina didn't start at the top of our list," said Shirley Barnes. "But coach Williams was very consistent. We were probably looking in a different direction. But he kept plugging away at it. He was always a step ahead of everyone else."

    I don't even know what that means...

    Re: Shirley's quote about Roy

    Maybe he violated rules of contact. Or gifts. Who knows. You think old Roy doesn't know how to game the system?

    Didn't KU under Roy get charged with violations for men's basketball and got penalized in other sports or something like that?

    Man I hate KU.

    Re: Shirley's quote about Roy

    That bugged me to since he has total access of ISU. Mac had to watch his every move on this ordeal and maybe he played it too safe. Maybe ISU was old hat to HB and something different is what he wanted, he had already done it saw it at ISU, except play for ISU.

    I think that's exactly what it was. Nothing we could have done would have had him awestruck.

    Re: Shirley's quote about Roy

    She's a UNC fan in addition to an ISU fan from what I hear. His name isn't Harrison Bryce-Jordan Barnes for nothing, nor is his sister named Jordan for nothing. Not that it matters, I'm sure it was his decision, but every little bit helps.

    Re: Shirley's quote about Roy

    How can she say Roy did more than ISU and Greg. It came down to the glitter. Nothing more. ISU and Greg did it for about 4 years... Roy... just cherry picking. If Barnes gets injured this year... Roy will turn his head. Greg and ISU... will be there regardless. Sad.

    Regardless... it's still the delivery more than the news.

    Re: Shirley's quote about Roy

    I think it's more of a reference to Duke leading recently rather than ISU. He was gushing after his Duke visit.

    Re: Shirley's quote about Roy

    let's just drop his name on this board. Kid don't want us he can go to North Carolina. We have a good team this year.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Shirley's quote about Roy

    I think Harrison picked North Carolina for three big, very good reasons:

    1. Style of play - UNC runs, dunks, and wins titles. Lots of fun on the court.
    2. Fun off the court - Chapel Hill is a great college town, maybe the best.
    3. He wants to best prepare to be a millionaire in the NBA. No place better than UNC.

    These are great reasons, and maybe the same reasons I'd use if I were HB.

    Just don't talk about Roy Williams and the trust crap. If Roy was coaching at Oregon State, I doubt HB would be committing there.

    That's because you are not wearing hip boots and got stuck in the BS.

    Re: Shirley's quote about Roy

    Tornado man, you are right on. I lived in Overland Park Kansas for several years, knew a couple big BBall boosters(neighbors), got to see ISU and Iowa beat KU in Lawrence, and let's just say Deputy Dog is a "slick" fella. But, HB will have to live with his decision, it isn't a bad decision, just not handled well at the end. One thing Roy does well is pimp his players, so given yesterday's performance, he should fit in well.

    Re: Shirley's quote about Roy

    Here's a thought...maybe no one gamed the system. Maybe Coach Mac didn't screw up. Maybe the kid just wanted to play for an elite and storied basketball program.
