    Hilton Review

    During the fall a friend of mine reviewed Jack Trice for a website he works for and a few weeks ago he visited Hilton and reviewed it. The review is now posted.

    Re: Hilton Review

    Pretty good reviews, reading the one of JTS makes me wish it was football season already, but I'm excited that I'm finally going to get to see the Mens BBall team at Hilton next month.

    You'd think they would rate the tailgating a little higher at Jack Trice.

    He rated the tailgating high, but low in the rather pointless 'neighborhood' category. If i were doing it i might replace 'atmosphere', 'neighborhood' and 'access' with 'in stadium atmosphere' and 'atmosphere surrounding the stadium'

    and he took a shot at ISU not having as much success as Iowa in basketball? Maybe overall history, but not modern history.

    True but he is only 22 or so. I grew up a die hard Cyclone fan and I don't remember any of the Johnny days and barely remember the elite 8 run. Other than that I remember a few years where we were close to being really good and then a big downturn. If he wasn't a Cyclone fan (which he's not) he probably doesn't remember or know about a lot of our history.

    Agreed. I've seen this before, and the criteria seem strange. If I go to a football stadium in the middle of a neighborhood or campus that has no tailgating around it (coughNebraskacough), I'm probably not going to think much of it.

    There can be a great atmosphere in any stadium setting, be it out in the open with tons of tailgating lots all around it like Jack Trice or Arrowhead, or if it's right in the heart of a neighborhood with no parking and lots of bars or random yard tailgating, like Wrigley or Kinnick.

    Also, Thumbs doesn't have a menu. The only way you're eating at Thumbs is if they have the grill going and you bring your own.

    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
