    Any halftime Air Elite effect on ISU's rims?

    I was wondering while it was happening during halftime. The Air Elite guys were dunking on the rim that ISU was going to shoot at in the 2nd half. I questioned if it should have been done on Mizzou's side to my wife.
    I know the rims are probably pretty sturdy, and well made. Minus the Royce White air ball free throws, could it have affected the rim at all?
    I know its a long shot, just wondered about it last night.

    Good question. Get the engineers out there to evaluate as a class project.

    They barely even touched the rims. They mostly did the Blake griffin throw the ball through the rim.

    They were dunking, not launching rockets at it.

    Backboards have broken before, supports have come down before, but thanks captain obvious. Apparently dunking can have no affect on rims according to you.

    No.

    By the way, that was one of the better halftime shows in awhile, maybe because we have not THE EXACT SAME THING every year for the past 5 years.

    Shaquille O'neal dunked on rims and they played with the same ones the rest of the game...... That is far more than 150lb Air Elite guys.

    For real?

    I think the answer you are looking for is no.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Yeah, the plate spinning panda lady, quick change, rubber boy, and the Fargo acrobatics team have become mainstays.

    No. Very, very, very, very slim chance.
