    New Nickname for the MBB Team

    I can't sleep, knowing this is out there for the Cyclone world to see.

    The City Council.
    I can see the marketing campaign with all the players in suits sitting at a table and doing other various basketball related activities.

    Someone needs to make this happen.

    Re: New Nickname for the MBB Team

    on a side note I was never a big fan of "twister sisters" but I'm starting to warm to it.

    Also I think the words "Hilton Magic" shouldn't be spoken until an opposing players comments on the floor shaking during a free throw

    That name only works because local t.v. sportscasters picked up on it and started using it. It makes it legit when that happens. Otherwise it just seems people are trying to come up with stupid nicknames like oh I don't know "The City Council".

    I would say until the crowd wills the team back from either a large deficit or an upset win over a superior opponent.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
