    What was the atmosphere like where you watched the game?

    Sportspage Ankeny was rocking last night. It was packed when I got there right before the game with a bunch of cardinal and gold.
    Didn't seem like too many people were paying attention to the game, until about 30 seconds in when Royce's dunk brought a roar from the patrons.
    Rest of the game felt like I was watching in a little mini Hilton. Awesome atmosphere. I assume there are a lot of stories like that from around Central IA?

    It was great in my living room.

    I was sitting alone in my basement, but the only guy that attended was practically bouncing off the walls, and couldn't sit still.

    3 of us studying abroad in the UK were rockin till 4 in the morning! We might have woken the whole flat when we went on that run.


    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

    Saint's Pub in West Des Moines was a lot of fun! The end of the game was the best part. Roaring laughter after Lamb biffed his windmill.

    Champs in Burnsville and it was lame. The wife and I were the only ones watching any game. That said, we still had a ton of fun.

    Yes that got a big roar in Ankeny as well.
    Truthfully one of the loudest applauses of the night came when we forced them to throw up a long 3 at the end of the shot clock about 2/3 of the way into the second half. Wish there was a way to pump the Central IA crowd noise into Louisville.

    Re: What was the atmosphere like where you watched the game?

    At our gamewatch location here in Raleigh, NC most of the people in the sports bar were cheering along with our group of fans. The only people who weren't were a few people who's brackets were bursting in front of their eyes.

    The place went dead quiet with Royce's dunk. It went even more quiet when they were up 34-14 in the first half.

    Buffalo Wild Wings in Minnesota. Total fail company. Slogan is "beer, wings, sports", and they didn't even have all four march madness games up on the TV's. I felt like an *** making them turn a bunch of the TV channels, but one of the TV's had a New York rangers game on SMH. At least they turned the big projection screen next to me to the ISU vs UCONN game and me and my friends cheered em on.
