    OSU football vs. KU basketball

    For those who attended both, which did you think had a better atmosphere?

    I haven't been to a whole lot of big games in my life but I have been to a few and these two easily stand out as my best experiences for each sport. The comeback and double OT victory which ended in a Woody chant and full field of Cyclones was pretty impressive, but for the overall insanity of the crowd and for the full duration of the game, I would have to say the Kansas game this year is the craziest crowd I have been a part of at any sporting event.

    Football is gonna win, because we won that game and we have more football fans than basketball fans...

    But Hilton>Jack for me

    Re: OSU football vs. KU basketball

    Kansas was crazier from start to finish.

    The Okie State game became more and more magical and intense as things went on. 53k+ people all sharing the bewilderment that this was actually happening is the kind of thing you see a handful of times.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: OSU football vs. KU basketball

    I was forced to sit in the upper deck for the Kansas game, so I'm still bitter from that. I go to every game at least two hours early, and that happens. I still think basketball games get way crazier/loud and I actually remember all of them due to a lack of tailgating.

    Re: OSU football vs. KU basketball

    Okie State. I'll remember that night for the rest of my life. We brought two Hoks because tickets were $11 and they'll remember it forever I am certain. Just remembering it now gives me goosebumps.

    The Kansas game certainly had more hype start-to-finish but at the end of the day OKie State and its not even close.

    I've been to several beat-top-10-opponent games at Hilton but only 1 at JTS.

    Re: OSU football vs. KU basketball

    Hilton is a better venue overall, but that OSU game was something special. I swear the stadium was shaking when they were playing the techno music during the breaks. They were cranking those tunes. Throw in the Cyclone Warning Horn, back and forth battle on the field, and the fact that we actually won and I think you gotta go with the OSU game atmosphere.

    Both were bad *** though.

    Re: OSU football vs. KU basketball

    Kansas game easily.

    There were still quite a few students that left and went home early for Thanksgiving so the student section wasn't quite packed full for OSU. Also the game didn't get crazy until the 4th quarter. I feel like some people also didn't show up because they thought OSU was going to roll us.

    Re: OSU football vs. KU basketball

    I gotta agree with CycloneErik. From start to finish, Kansas easily wins. The build up of that Okie State game was incredible though. I will never forget that football game but I might forget that Kansas game...

    Re: OSU football vs. KU basketball

    It hurts to say Kansas since we lost and the OSU game was the biggest win in ISU football history, but if your being honest, its the KU game by mile. The OSU game was loud and crazy relative to other Jack Trice games, but comparing Hilton to Jack Trice is stupid. That's not because the Jack sucks but because Hilton is one of the best atmospheres in the country.

    I would even say the Kansas, Baylor, and K-State games last year were better game atmospheres than OSU.

    KU. The Okie State game atmosphere was good but didn't get really jacked up until well into the second half.

    KU game easily. OSU game was crazy the 4th quarter and OT's. KU game was crazy from start to finish.

    Re: OSU football vs. KU basketball

    Wow...good question, Hilton will always have my heart but when you had 5X the people outside on a crisp fall night just shouting and dancing at the gods to give us the win that is something that will never be replicated again. I'll never forget being on the big screen during that game with my lucky football fedora on and I kissed the ISU logo on my jacket. I got way more camera time than I wanted!

    Youre right on the shaking. From what i remember of the replays, the cameras were shaking at the end of that game.

    Re: OSU football vs. KU basketball

    I'm going to go with KU basketball.

    The OSU night was something special, but it wasn't for the whole night.

    KU? Walking in the building after stage door, before even entering the inner concourse, there was a buzz about the place. Students had filled to the rafters and the rest of the crowd was right behind them. Tipoff was crazy and i dont think hilton has been that consistently loud for at least 10 years.
