    Pretty sure half the campus was there with me at Student Health getting repaired after Friday's death trap performance. If walking is your means of transportation anywhere near the ISU campus, staying home isn't a bad idea at all.
    There are conditions that would keep a student from walking to class. There are conditions that would keep a student from walking to a kegger. There are conditions that would keep a student from walking to Hilton to support their top 15 bball program. Not all are equal. Most student ticket holders I knew while at ISU would have made it to Hilton today.

    If they're on campus, then they know what walking on campus is like. That's reason enough to stay home.

    In terms of the terrible roads, ISU traffic management was reason enough to stay home. That's a pathetic show game in and game out just getting the fans who are present into the game.

    ON a day like today, you thank your lucky stars that anyone gave a rip enough to come out and you call it a day. Complaining about the fans who bothered to come out is ridiculous, and there were plenty of valid reasons for people to stay home today.

    Gotta agree. My kid had the 7:30 a.m. Friday final last term, fell flat on his back the second he stepped outside at Freddy. Had to inch along to get there for his final all the way, buses weren't running yet when he needed to leave. When I went to pick him up at about noon, still nothing done on the ice. So sorry you got hurt.

    Re: I hope hilton....

    Not going to lie. I look like an idiot every game in our parquet section, raising up and motioning to the crowd with my arms to "get up". I bet they think I'm ridiculous. Unfortunately, I probably yell some stupid things, tho, too. But for the most part, I just love the Clones and want Hilton Magic in force....ALL the time, EVERY game. Don't tell me that it doesn't help those players out on the floor.

    Thanks. Mine is just annoying, but it's that. There were plenty of people hobbling in there that looked really rough.
    Maybe they'll bother some year.

    Give the fans something to cheer about. We go on a run and everyone is waiting for the run the other direction. We all know it is coming.

    what made Hilton special is it going both ways, not just the players giving them something to cheer about. It is up to the fans to spurn on the players on too. For whatever reason, the Hilton Magic or consistently loud crowd from the 80s and 90s is never going to be back. What we have today is pathetic by comparison.

    Re: I hope hilton....

    I was at the game. The crowd was pretty decent. We gave the team a really good ovation when they managed to string together a good last minute to bring the lead to 10 at halftime. We gave them good noise when they built the lead to 18 and Tech took a time out. When Tech threw together 12 straight points unanswered after that, we tried, we really did, to get behind the team and lift them up, but we just kept throwing the ball away, giving them an easy bucket, or a foul'd get called and kill the crowd.

    Listen, there were people in my section that haven't missed a game in the 10 years I've had those tickets who either a) didn't make it today, or b) were more than 45 minutes late. The roads were bad, 35 was a parking lot, and the ISU center was triple booked, forcing people to walk from Jack or elsewhere.

    And once they got in, having fought traffic, and been sent in a never-ending loop by the parking people looking for a spot, it's hard to immediately jump into rabid fan mode.

    Add on top of that, it was a John Higgins officiated game, which means that the first half was super open and loose, and the second half got called pretty tight. Every other series, it seemed like, we got called for ticky tacky fouls as they drove to the lane. We couldn't play defense without fouling, and we couldn't, it felt, get a call at the other end of the floor. That's a recipe for a dead crowd, because you can only be indignant about officiating for so many series in a row.

    Turn on any other CMBB game in the country on any given day or night, and there are maybe a half dozen with attendance reaching ours. Was it down compared to what many games in Hilton are? Sure. Was it bad? Heck no.

    So stop being ridiculous and enjoy the win.

    We won. Enjoy the win.

    We won.

    Enjoy the win.
