    Hilton South

    Can we please stop referring to Sprint Center as Hilton South? Last time I checked not winning the past 7 years somewhere doesn't equate to a homecourt advantage. We sound like morons imo

    Re: Hilton South

    It's called Hilton South because of all the fans we have at the games that should give us home court advantage. Of course we can see how that worked last night.

    The only "true" Hilton South was Kemper.

    Last time I checked it goes back further than 7 yrs to the days of Kemper Arena. People still call it Hilton Magic every time there is an upset and that term was coined back in the 80's, do they sound like morons now?....I mean Notre Dame is still called one of the most storied football programs ever even though it has had a rough go of it since they let go of Lou Holtz back in the mid-90's, so do people sound like morons when they call Notre Dame a prestigious program?

    So Notre Dame hasn't won a game in 7 years? I don't think they'd be a prestigious program if they haven't won a game in 7 years.

    Re: Hilton South

    I still think it was better than the Colorado fan's sign at their game: "Coors Events Center West" But on second thought, on tv, the arena looked completely empty so maybe the sign was accurate

    Criticizing the example rather than meat of my argument....looks like someone is grasping at straws now....

    Yes, actually they do. You could also call Minnesota a prestigious program based on the number of national championships they won in the '40s, but people would sound like a moron. I'm 25 and I don't remember a time when Notre Dame was a major player.

    they haven't all been at the Sprint though. I think only 3 of the 7 have been there?
