Here's Friday's Dear Gary ...

Dear Gary: Gee what a shock. YOU picking against Duke . A true rarity.

-- Jeff

I didn't predict/guess that Harrison Barnes will announce for North Carolina because of anything that has to do with Duke. I have my reasons, and one of those reasons is because one of the coaches involved in the recruitment (not a UNC coach, by the way) told me he thinks it'll be the Tar Heels. I also have another reason, and I'll share that one with you later, if I'm correct.

In the meantime, here's a text I just got from a coach involved in the recruitment:

"I honestly have no idea."

Pretty suspenseful, huh?

Dear Gary (on Harrison Barnes' decision)

Barnes a little over the top don't you think Gary?  All these press conferences on ESPN are going straight to the head of the recruit, I can only imagine what his new teammates thought about this whole process.  Look I know the guy is good and would have fit great on any of the mentioned teams but ......legacy?  Are you kidding me?  Mr. Barnes will have to stay 4 years to do that and I think he will wear the baby blue for two or less.  Let's stop with the drama for TV press signings, and oh while I am wishing; how about one signing period PERIOD NCAA!
