    Re: Who's better Vette or Barz?

    I've never seen Vette play, but I did go to the same high school as Barz so I saw him play a lot. If you are looking for a physical player, Barz is NOT it. He has nice moves and a good shot, but is not physical at all. I would guess Barz is more skilled offensively than Vette, but Vette is a better rebounder and probably a better scorer around the basket.

    Vette because he is going to Iowa State. I have seen neither play and Vette is way better. What would you rather have a CorVette or a Barz.

    Exactly. It seems we second guess our own guys alot. We need to have more confidence in out players and staff. I want to see it borderline cocky like the husker and hawk fans. I want us to say we are awesome and we will be awesome from here on out.

    It is not even close. Vette is a much better player with a much better attitude.

    So let me get this straight you want more cyclone fans to be like hawk fans? I'm sorry but that is the last thing I want to have happen.

    Not exactly what I meant by that. Gimme a break. I would like to have the attitude that we will win. We tend to question every decision a coach makes.

    Re: Who's better Vette or Barz?

    I know a bit about Barz and he is tall but very thin and not a physical player. You can play at a high level in high school with these traits, but unfortunately he would probably get eaten in the Big 12. Vette's size and level of physical play alone makes him a better bet to succeed on the college level.

    Barz sucks. Vette rules. End of story.

    Re: Who's better Vette or Barz?

    I would be willing to bet that McDermott would be really happy to have Barz, since he did commit to him last year. I'd also be willing to bet McDermott took the high road and didn't try to re-recruit him, in deference to his former school.

    I would definitely describe Wesley Johnson as thin and he turned out alright

    Re: Who's better Vette or Barz?

    I have heard from of a friend of mine that coaches baseball at Johnston, that he has seen Barz in the weight room, and he said he can only max out at 170?!?!?!?!

    With that fact in my mind i would definently take Vette in the paint, but what i have seen Barz is a better offensive skilled player.
