    Re: Nice Piece on Hilton Magic****

    Funny thing is that it was much much louder on Sat vs Baylor.

    FIFY

    Saturday was decent, but it never really felt like we were in danger of losing that game, especially late. If we take Kansas to the wire in Hilton, it will be much louder.

    It's good to get some Hilton attention. The microphones used during broadcasts don't really give it justice as to how loud it is in there.

    LAST YEAR'S Baylor game was unreal. The place felt and sounded like it was gonna explode the entire 2nd half.

    I think it was when Scotty knocked down a 3 to take the lead in the second half that the place just went nuts

    It compared to Babb's 3 that was the dagger against KU earlier that season. Those two moments are neck-and-neck for me

    Agreed. House was 100% full too because of the standing room only tickets. We were full and loud.

    Re: Nice Piece on Hilton Magic****

    The Kansas game last year was nuts and was the Baylor game. It is good to have Hilton feared by all the teams that come in. Also listening to any announcer on Cyclones broadcasts, they can't say enough about the atmosphere and the team. We are doing great things and it is fun.

    This.
    Baylor and Kansas last year were incredibly loud. Never heard anything that loud before.

    Re: Nice Piece on Hilton Magic****

    Loudest I've ever heard Hilton was when Johnny Orr ripped off his coat during the Oklahoma State game, which we wound up winning. Ok. St. players said the floor was shaking.

    Last years Baylor game and the Kansas game were close to that.

    Yep, hell students in the last 10 rows in the west lower level were sitting the entire game Monday night.

    I'll never forget when Scotty hit that 3. I can't remember what song started playing, but the whole crowd breaks out into a "Let's Go State" chant that keeps going well after the song was over, and the loudest I've ever heard the entire crowd cheer in unison. That gave me goosebumps.

    I cannot wait for the KU game. Bring the decibel reader to that one!

    109 dB? Weak sauce! I think the Cyclone Faithful can ratchet it up to 120.
