    To all the cyclone haters

    Maybe you should just let Cyclones fans vent if they want to. If you are interested in talking about a North Carolina signee, please go to one of their sites.

    Coach McG should turn this into a positive. This team needs a chip on their shoulder. In public, he should continue to say positive things when asked about any opposing player. With the team, he should make a point of letting them know that they are not considered elite enough. They will only get respect by showing the other teams, coaches and the media on the floor what they can do.

    But, but but....I did go to the North Carolina site. They're not sure about how much Harrison can really add to their team.

    Oh no, I am sure there are all sorts of threads, after all Roy and UNC signed another McDonald's All-American. That is big news!

    Look again. I am sure it is all over the UNC message boards. The thrill. The excitement.

    Skype!

    with their already stacked team, i hope he doesn't have illusions of becoming 'the guy' there.

    Showmanship made the NBA suck. Now it's destroying college basketball. That too by players who have never played a college game.

    He's got a point. And it's not surprising to me that some of the most starkly black and white sentiments on HB are coming from some of the same posters who are starkly black and white in the cave.

    Everyone has their points. What I hear most on this board is that while the majority understand about how HB could choose UNC, the majority also believe it was a poor way to handle the situation. There isn't this huge gray area between classy and classless. How much criticism would have been around had he just stated that ISU was out of the running or had he not made the show of it the way he did? My guess is little to none. People would still be disappointed but they wouldn't be feeling "played" and be all bent out of shape about it.

    And I absolutely see that point. There's just no need for threads like "What nickname should we come up with for Barnes?" or to call people who think this whole thing is going overboard "Cyclone Haters." It's immature and stupid.
