There has to be reasons a guy like Barnes comawes back to Chapel Hill, as hot as Knight got in the tourney there was no one playing hotter at the end of the season this side of Kemba Walker than Barnes. He showed he was ready, he proved he was a top three pick, but he decides to stay in school. Just makes me wonder if theres a strong enough buzz going around about the lockout that most of these guys that would normally have went have decided to come back.


    I think Sullinger is intelligent enough to know there are things he wants to be able to do on the court when he goes pro. He knew he was coming back immediately after the UK game.

    Barnes seems to really enjoy being a college student. Think about it.....from now until UNC loses a game Barnes is THE KING of UNC. He will never be as loved and revered as he is now. He even gave a great answer as to why he was coming back and yes I still loathe him.

    Everything doesn't always have to be about money and they know it will be there for them when they are ready for it.

    Goodman just tweeted that Knight's biggest concern about returning is apparantly having to move to the 2.

    Wait a second......Knight's mother says he has made a decision but it is his place to say the decision. Gee, thanks Mom. The bus felt so good rolling over me.

    I guess she is ready for this to be over so now she is making him speak up. Seems like if it his place to say she just would have let him say it himself instead of her telling Tipton he has made up his mind. Does she work in Lexington? She may be tired of people asking her.

    I think Calipari could work those concerns out if that's all that is on his mind.
