    "Hilton Magic"

    Am I the only one that feels that this phrase, "Hilton Magic", is extremely overused by the athletics marketing department as well as the media? It seems as if every home win in either MBB or WBB is attributed to "Hilton Magic" by someone--regardless of whether the actual phenomenon that led to the coining of the phrase was present. Kind of to the point where I can't stand hearing it anymore. Thoughts??

    That it's overused is good. Intimidation, publicity and pride.

    Re: "Hilton Magic"

    If you would have asked me a month ago I would have said yes because the Magic wasn't back yet. But now I just think it's good publicity! Would be awesome if Hilton Magic could have the same national exposure as the phog.

    Re: "Hilton Magic"

    Am I the only one who thinks Hilton Magic isn't back? I remember ISU having some pretty awful teams on the court and that team could beat the best team in the country at home, but once that team had to play on the road, they would get blown out by a nobody. (I hate to say it, but those ISU teams reminded me a lot of Iowa's team this year.) The team we have the year is just flat out talented. There is no "magic" behind them winning.

    When we are down 15 points and come back and win by a last second shot, that is Hilton magic. Willing the team to win is what it's all about IMO

    Re: "Hilton Magic"

    Hilton Magic peaked its head for the OSU game. Showed its entire body for the Kansas game. And then confirmed it during the KSU game. Yes, its back. And its good publicity. I have had to explain what Hilton Magic is to a lot of people over here in Chicago, and most of them were very intrigued by it. Use it, and use it often. Hilton Freaking Magic!
