    He should just commit to Iowa State already and end this thing.

    Wow, he's never really let the pressure get to him like that before, has he?

    Wow is right; he has got to be getting tired of this.

    I really don't know why he cares so much. Obviously people are going to speculate about his recruitment and I have no idea why he feels like he has to refute stuff that is wrong. If I were I'd just handle my business, not worry about what the media has to say, and decide to go to Iowa State.

    I think he'll be able to make it one more month. How bad can it be getting attention from the elite basketball schools and the nation and knowing no matter where he decides he will be a star? I think he'll enjoy the process while he can and let these stupid little reports get in the way of his recruitment.

    It gets overwhelming...Getting pulled in hundred directions, questions, comments, phone calls, visits 24/7...Can't get away from it.

    Am I the only one that was really confused and didn't understand what the issue was? :confused:

    I think he found out that the Duke fan base is an absolute cult; if they think that Coach K has been tricked by a recruit (HB) or Roy Williams, then all hell breaks loose...

    Don't want to rile those nerds up. I guess this really doesn't seem like a big deal to me but what you said may have something to do with it.

    Allot of people seem to think that since our coaching staff doesn't seem to be making waves with the Barnes recruitment that we must not have a shot at him. Judging by this response, maybe taking it easier is a good thing.

    Maybe this will make him realize that ISu will be a lot lower pressure environment than any of the big schools and maye, just maybe this helps us land him.

    I just cannot imagine the pandemonium that would ensue if he were to commit to ISU. Can you imagine this place?

    It would be a huge shot in the arm. No doubt.

    Interesting descriptor. When we went on our visit to the campus I had the impression that most of the kids were dorks that thought they were cool.

    If he would commit, would we get other top recruits that he may have befriended on the circuit? Maybe something similar to the Fab Five at Michigan?
