The week of Harrison Barnes continues. Barnes follows his career high 26 point game with another strong effort against the Spurs. Plus, Barnes makes the NBA All-Rookie team. Fellow Ames High alum Fred Hoiberg had fun on Twitter:

“Congrats to the 2nd best player in Ames High School history @HBarnes for making the all rookie team…well deserved honor!”…

Patrick Ingram says he’ll transfer from Iowa to move closer to home. Ingram may or may not move closer to home, but nine times out of 10, that translates to, “I want more playing time”. This could work out well for all involved…

Andrew Wiggins, the #1 basketball recruit in America, picks Kansas. At least he didn’t go to Kentucky. The Jayhawks become favorites to win their 77th straight conference championship…

Cyclone fans applaud the NCAA for changing the block/charge rule, which did need changing. However, fans must remember Iowa State also benefited from the previous rule. Not as much as Ohio State though…

The University of Hawaii decides it won’t change from Rainbow Warriors to just Warriors. Good. PC overreaction runs in both directions…

rainbow warriorsChuck Muncie died of a heart attack at age 60. Muncie was an underrated running back. He started with the Saints, but peaked with the Chargers–scored 19 touchdowns in one season. Muncie also wore glasses, not goggles, glasses…

Did I just hear Ed Wilson say it was 100 degrees in Fort Dodge, but piles of snow are still melting? Only in Iowa…

Why didn’t anyone warn me how uncomfortable it is watching “Hope Springs”? It’s like two hours of walking in on your parents. It’s not the laughfest suggested by commercials…
