In a sport that's seen Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, and John Wall dominate in the past decade, it's certainly not "new" for a freshman to just take over college basketball. It's sort of how things work now. So can North Carolina's Harrison Barnes be the next prodigy to take over college basketball?

CBS' Gary Parrish named him preseason player of the year, so clearly, some people think so. And I'm a UNC fan facing the prospect of back-to-back titles for Duke, so... Can Harrison Barnes get things back on track (and derail the Devils in the process)? God I hope so.
