    Hilton Atmosphere Friday - My Take

    Hilton was fantastic Friday night, hats off to the student section. The student section is what drives the atmosphere in that place, us "older" people just couldn't do it without you guys driving it. Me and a buddy have 4 season tickets and typically we take our sons along 12 & 15 years old. I love most of your chants, but the profanity in chants like **** the Hawkeyes just takes away from the atmosphere. Most of your chants are great and I just laugh, but some take it a bit too far, it is a bit embarrassing.

    Go ahead and flame the old guy...

    I'm not an old guy and I agree that "F**k the Hawks" has to go. Embarassing. Who cares if the Iowa student section does it. Come up with something funny and appropriate to put down the Hoks.

    I want whoever enters Hilton to immediately want to get out and never come back.

    I think Gesell and Marble feel that exact way. Mission accomplished.

    Hate to break it to you, but that's the one chant that's probably not going anywhere.

    re: Hilton Atmosphere Friday - My Take

    Every time ISU plays Iowa or Nebraska in any sport that chant's coming out, and it's been coming out of the student section for decades. Deal with it.

    The students aren't chanting anything derogatory, they aren't yelling slurs at any players, and aren't chanting about players dead relatives. Quit trying to find things to complain about. Hilton right now is a top 10 atmosphere in college basketball and the students drive that.

    "F*** the Hawkeyes" is a dumb chant we shouldn't do anymore. Let's at least come up with something creative to make fun of them.

    We just win a huge game and you feel the need to come on here and scold our students who camped out starting at 6am the day before for cheering against our hated rival??? Good freaking gosh.

    re: Hilton Atmosphere Friday - My Take

    I agree --- Just use "screw the hawkeyes" instead --- you don't have to lower yourself to that level of language. We are an intelligent fan base..... I do agree with the intention, but I had two 5 year olds in front of me that didn't need to hear it. Other than that, I thought the students were fantastic and have been all year.

    re: Hilton Atmosphere Friday - My Take

    We have done the F the Hawkeyes forever now. Doesn't mean it was right then or right now. Heck I know I did it as a student. But when we start saying that about 1 player like during the Michigan game... Well then that might be taking it too far. He stepped on Naz on accident. Not like he tried to beat him up for $2 and a cell phone.

    The solution is hugs. Everyone just needs a hug.

    It comes with the territory. Your kids heard a muffled F word. Probably much tamer than what they see every day on the Internet or at school.

    re: Hilton Atmosphere Friday - My Take

    As an old bandie (Huck the Fawks)

    I think we all need to stop being embarrassed by what college students say. No public figure after the game was like "can you believe they said that?" I am also sure the Reiman's did not pull their stadium money and any real donor doesn't give a turd because I'd bet every loud and aggressive students section (save the academies and BYU) probably say just as bad if not worse. We can go into the diatribe about how that work has lost any real sting/meaning in this current generation if you want. Its a word that is used casually by modern college student now a day, and has been for at least a decade. I am sure the student section is not ruining virgin ears.

    The word and chant are not classy, but it is not like this student section is the one who first started chanting **** the Hawks.

    re: Hilton Atmosphere Friday - My Take

    I just don't think F the hawkeyes or F McGary has any place at Hilton. I think that the students have done a great job, but there ARE little kids in attendance (and we DO want to have kids there) and it looks bad on TV. I'm fine with anything else, but they need to get a little more imaginative and leave out the profanity. I'll admit that I use the F word a ton, but you have to understand the setting and audience.
