    Minnesota fans LOVE Hilton and ISU fans

    Just back from the Game

    They're pretty much glowing about us. So, yeah, we're awesome fans.

    And it probably would have been twice as loud with the students...

    Pretty cool to hear.

    One of them said the outside of Hilton wasn't that great. I actually think it's a very cool-looking arena. But up close, it is starting to look a little shabby. Hopefully they'll repair a lot of the cracking, broken concrete on the stairs and so forth once they start work over there.

    It was an average crowd considering no students.

    We are spoiled. Hilton is really such a great place to watch a bball game. Anyone who has ever been to Carver hawkeye or the Barn will tell you that.

    Wow, hearing that from all of those Gopher fans really makes me proud to be a Cyclone! Good job outta all of you that were able to make it to the game!

    Now, I really wish they would continue this series; and have it when school is in session so students can be there!!

    Yea, games against opponents from a major conference should definitely be scheduled while students are in Ames.

    Those MN fans sure are classy... nothing but respect in that post

    Re: Minnesota fans LOVE Hilton and ISU fans

    Those were some very nice comments by the MN crowd, very classy. I'm disappointed I didn't see anyone with a "Who hates Iowa" shirt, I would've gotten it right away! Nice to hear outsiders are as impressed with Hilton as I still am every time I walk up to it. And I think they're right about Brackins being a beast!

    One last thought- am I crazy or was 'alltimetwinsfan' (19th post from top) asking if anyone else wanted to go in with him on a pair of OUR $100 season tickets to see "good Big 12 basketball during idle days at Williams Arena"??? Gopher fans considering ISU season tickets because they're so cheap??? You da man Jamie Pollard, you da man!

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Much better than the Armory. Someone had a vision.

    Good to see our fans represented us well.

    Gopher fans are appear to be very classy themselves.

    Re: Minnesota fans LOVE Hilton and ISU fans

    I really wish they could have at least opened up the Minnesota game during the break for the students. I know I would have made the trip from Des Moines to make the game if the game were included in the student season package. I really appreciated how loud the game sounded on TV, but such a crucial non-conference game should take advantage of the additional noise that the students would have brought.

    I am probably biased but it has to be a top 20 venue for BBall, if not top 10.

    I would much rather go to the Minny game than Winston Salem State. Why are the bigger non-con games always over break?

    Re: Minnesota fans LOVE Hilton and ISU fans

    I really hate the Big 10, but the Gophers are definitely my team in the conference if I've gotta have one. I worked at the U of Mn for two years after ISU and it is a really good place. I hope we continue the series, that GMac and Tubby turns their programs around, and that this can become a #10 vs #12 sort of game early in the season. That would be great. (as long as we win)

    The game wasn't in your student ticket package and that was the only reason you didn't drive up from Des Moines for the game? If that happens again next year, send me a PM and I will give you $15 for a ticket. SLCyclones and I might even have an extra ticket next to us.

    **Note** I am just trying to make a point here, so this offer only applies for AirWalke.
