    Danny Manning Encounter! (during halftime)

    First off, great game Cyclones! If a couple small things would've went our way, I think we could've pulled off the W. Great job by our seniors Diante, Jake, and JVB especially. Now onto my story...

    I was in the student section probably 10 rows up right by the entrance to KU locker room. As KU is going into halftime and all the players and coaches were walking by, so I yelled, "Hey Danny! How many times did you win at Hilton?" I wasn't expecting any sort of recognition but he looks right up at me and says, "None." So I say "yeah that's right", and make a zero with my hand. It wasn't disrespectful and everyone around me thought it was pretty funny.

    Then, with about two minutes left of halftime, I feel a tapping on my leg. I look over, and Danny Manning is right there! looking up at me! and he asks, "How many championships has ISU won?" I was so startled I was like "uhhhhh idk." Then he said, "C'mon I was honest with you, now you be honest with me." So I responded zero, and he just smiled and walked away.

    So he was thinking about my comment during the whole half-time! And actually thought it was necessary to go over to a student to make a come-back. I really couldn't believe an assistant coach at a school like KU would do that. I must've really got to him!

    Oh and the best part was a cop came over to make sure there wasn't any altercation between us. So if any of you did see that, I assure I wasn't doing anything illegal or yelling racist/derogatory comments.


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    I saw the ref talking to the cop. You were sitting on the band side, correct?

    Danny has a great sense of humor. I fail to see anything negative about his response. He's one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet.

    Re: Danny Manning Encounter! (during halftime)

    I find this hilarious. I can't believe he actually made a point to come back to you after so much time had passed. You must have you really got to him if he needed to think of a comeback and make sure you heard it.

    I was one of the Ames cop's working in that tunnell. You may have noticed me failing to remain stoic on some of those foul calls.

    I think Danny was just being a good sport. You believe whatever you want to though.

    As an ISU alum, I was proud of the student sections tonight. Keep it going all year!

    I believe this to be true. These guys are human too and some of them are even nice enough to interact with people. I wouldn't think of it as "Getting to him." He knew you got him good and he was just "being one of the guys" and got you with a good one too.

    That is a great story for everyone involved! The ISU fan got a nice rib in, and Manning responded with a good natured one of his own. Good job to all involved, sports is entertainment and you each got a good joke in and I love the story!

    Cool story. Manning was an unbelievable player, and I think ISU can be proud that he never won in Hilton. I also think he probably understands that our pride in that accomplishment is a sign of respect for him.

    Re: Danny Manning Encounter! (during halftime)

    Ha ha that's a funny story. He came back to own you like that, I would have laughed and said you got me there man

    One year I was at the Big 12 tournament in KC and staying at the media hotel. I'm waiting to get on an elevator and someone walks up next to me waiting also, I look over and it was Marcus Allen and I'm like holy ****. We get on the elevator and go up about 5 floors and it stops and Danny Manning gets on and him and Marcus start talking while I'm standing there stunned. I was like wow a Super Bowl MVP/Heisman Trophy winner and an NCAA champ and me. What are the odds?

    You got pwned.

    I thought maybe you were going to say you bumped into him in the hallway or something and he fell to the floor, looking around for a whistle.

    You should have said, "Ask me next year."

    Maybe you can talk smack to Coach K now also? At least Manning was classy enough to own your *** in a mature way. You might want to wait and talk smack next time Cleveland State comes in rather then going after Kansas.

    That was a separate encounter in the second half. The ref was busy worrying about what a fan in the front row said instead of calling the game. He whined to the ISU event staff guy right in front of the band first and then we he didn't get a quick response he walked across the court and complained to the cop. The cop came over and talked to the guy the ref pointed out and a couple seconds later the cop was laughing with the fan. Better have a little thicker skin than that if you are going to be an official in the Big 12.
