    Rece Davis on Hilton

    They just showed some highlights of the game on ESPN and when leading into the highlights Rece Davis said "You don't just waltz in Hilton Coliseum and come out with a win!" or something along those lines. Well, I have heard him say that the last 5 or so times he has done the highlights on an ISU home game.
    Is there some type of inside joke that I am missing? Did somebody say that at one point and now he is taking off with it? Or is he just saying it because its true? I just find it odd because he says it ALL THE TIME. I'm not hating on him, I love it, I just want to know the reason behind it.

    Could have something to do with our current 20 game home winning streak. Or all the national hype "Hilton Magic" has had over the years.

    They don't know many phrases. It's probably the best he can do.

    Re: Rece Davis on Hilton

    I figured he was just saying it because it's true and we are on a 20 home game win streak, but the way he says/yells it and how he does it every time I thought maybe there was something more interesting to it.

    Nevermind, carry on.

    He is a classically trained ballroom dancer. It comes out when he gets excited over Fred Hoiberg.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    Rece Davis reads the copy. I get the feeling he'd give a Ron Burgandy style shout out to San Diego if they put it on the prompter.

    Re: Rece Davis on Hilton

    He did this too when they added his commentary to the NCAA Football games. He's got a few quips he does a start of a home game for Iowa State, but one of them is "You don't just sashay into Jack Trice Stadium and expect to come out with a victory!"

    He says the same thing on NCAA 13 Col Football during the pre game blerp. "You just dont waltz into jack trice and walk away with a win." Sersiously the only line he knows...

    Re: Rece Davis on Hilton

    One of the other guys said something along the lines of "I think KState is a solid team but this Iowa State team is the 2nd best in the Big 12."

    Greenberg (?) agreed with him.
