    The Magic is Back

    The Magic is back. This game might have not been in Hilton, but the magic is back within this team. This team works hard, they play hard and never give up. The energy was crazy inside of The Well today. I have never felt anything like it in the past 4 years. It was just amazing. Simply amazing. I can't even explain how fun of a game it was to be at. It was an emotional roller coaster. We would be happy for a short time, and then we all would get stressed and ******. The Magic is back. Lets move this all to Hilton and get this train rolling.

    I don't know if it's back yet, but I seriously think that with CFH and the boys, it could be getting there...

    Even with just an OK-sized crowd at WFA, the atmosphere was UNBELIEVABLE. Most fun ISU game I've been to since the ISU-Virginia game with WM as coach. People were spontaneously standing up and yelling things out, and it got loud in there at the end. VERY loud. It was awesome!!!!!


    My first ISU basketball game - Fred Hoiberg was on the court.
    My first ISU football game - Paul Rhoads was on the sidelines.
    But they hadn't yet reached their full potential.

    SO PROUD that things have come full circle. #cyclONEnation

    It certainly was a tremendous atmosphere. It felt like a tournament game. There were a ton of Creighton fans there and they were loud too. This one was a see-saw affair the whole game. What I saw today that has been missing for the last few years is how the fans responded. The Iowa State fanbase is extemely intelligent, and knows when to step it up a notch. Happened today. What a game!!

    Re: The Magic is Back

    Incredible game, Creighton has some good players and were nailing their 3's. It took a lot of poise for us to hang in there, and overcome what looked to me were a couple of horrible calls in the last seconds when it looked like Melvin got hacked after he got the rebound, then the Creigton player got bailed out when he threw up a desperation shot as he was falling away from the basket. Looked like sure ot until Jamie nailed it. Creigton fans around us were a little arrogant and it was great sending them home crying.

    Re: The Magic is Back

    It was a great game. I was getting real sick of the CU fan sitting behind me. She tapped me on the shoulder and told me to sit down when I was standing up cheering on our defense to get a crucial stop. I payed for my ticket too lady.

    All around great atmosphere. When JVB made that shot it was LOUD.

    I'm of the opinion that WFA diluted the magic a little. Bring all ISU home games back to HILTON!!

    Can't believe i didn't see the last shot, nor the environment, but from what i heard on the radio it was insane at WFA.

    Well said by both. It's exactly what I said when the game was over. Now let's make sure there is a good crowd for Wed. game. I know it's a holiday weekend, but if you can make it please do. This team DESERVES it.

    Re: The Magic is Back

    This team kinda reminds me of the 2009 Iowa State Football Team. You expect low and get surprised. I know its early but this team is playing lights out. When a team shoots more than 10 three pointers and shoots over 50% from the three point line your bound to lose. We got the best of Creighton tonight and still won. I dont care what you say if they play like this in conference play they could be tournament bound.

    Re: The Magic is Back

    Agree CloneFan4-Creighton has some good players and played a great game. They were shooting 31% from the 3 point line before today, so we caught them on a very hot shooting day and still overcame it and won. We also won despite Scotty missing several free throws down the stretch, which I doubt will happen again.

    Amazing that we pulled out the W today considering Creighton was shooting out of their minds. Great effort by out boys.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Not only that but when a team is making that many contested shots, it takes away somewhat our ability to get out on the fastbreak. In my mind we really outplayed them big time...they just shot the ball inexplicably well. They shoot the ball the way you would expect them too, and we convert some of those rebounds into fastbreak layups....and we're talking a 20+ point win.
