    How a Hawkeye feels about Hilton Magic

    Talked with one of my die-hard Hawk buddies at work today, He says he can't stand all this Hilton Magic crap. There's no magic just a home court advantage. My response, I'm glad it upsets you, that makes me happy.

    Re: How a Hawkeye feels about Hilton Magic

    I like that they haven't won there since 2003. I hope we can beat them next year at Carver and then make it 3 in a row in Hilton in 2015. They lose Marble, McCabe and Basabe. I think they lose more than they think. After White's gone in 2015, they will be pretty average, IMO as recruiting hasn't been stellar.

    Re: How a Hawkeye feels about Hilton Magic

    You mean there is no such thing as magic? Tell your Hawkeye friend - duh! It's a phrase that was coined by someone because of the homecourt advantage gleaned from the 14,000 screaming Iowa State fans. Tell him they can start using the phrase Carver VooDoo.

    Re: How a Hawkeye feels about Hilton Magic

    Hawk fans are crying about it which makes me smile because it means they are afraid of it and are afraid of playing in Hilton.

    Re: How a Hawkeye feels about Hilton Magic

    Maybe it was just how it was televised or maybe it was my alcohol consumption but I thought Hilton seemed a lot less crazy then the Michigan game. Anyone else?

    Re: How a Hawkeye feels about Hilton Magic

    So they lost at an average home court?
    I think I'd try harder with my excuses.

    It's because I was at the Michigan game but watched the Iowa game from my living room because the prices on Stubhub were so high.

    My bad. I won't let it happen again.

    Re: How a Hawkeye feels about Hilton Magic

    More specifically, Gessell lost his will and choked on an average home court? Not the kind of backbone I look for in a key player.

    Wasn't there but I heard the opposite from the few people I talked to.

    Michigan game was louder throughout because we were able to make runs. Iowa did a good job at halting our runs. End of the game though...there was no comparison. Not even close

    Instead of Hilton Magic, FakeDanBeebe calls it Hilton ********.

    Haven't seen anyone talk about it but Gessell probably won't ever recover from that. Demons, demons, demons.

    Anybody have a .gif of those two misses?


    Rhoads out!

    Re: How a Hawkeye feels about Hilton Magic

    Taken as a whole, the Michigan game was louder.

    At the end, especially the 2nd Gesell FT, Iowa was louder.

    As someone else pointed out, Iowa stopped a lot of our runs, deflating. CA wasn't nearly as loud for Iowa as it was Michigan.
