    Re: I hope hilton....

    I seriously want to punch people through my screen.

    What p*isses me off more than anything in the world is old people leaving their seats to go stand on the concourse with 2 minutes left in the game.

    The game is not over.

    You make us all look bad.

    It's embarrassing.

    You can't make petty complaints about the student section until this is ended.

    Yeah it was a nasty drive from DSM. More than once I thought about just turning around and going back home. Saw 5 multi car accidents in person on the way. I don't blame people for not showing up to this one.

    Had family drive in from Illinois today, I-80 to I-35, and they gave up counting cars in the ditch once they reached 50. Lots of stop-and-go because of accidents. Yay for those who drove hours in dangerous conditions to get to the game, but not going to blame those who didn't.

Maybe the worst cyclone power chant I have ever heard at hilton. Not a single sign, except the dude from illinois who turned 21 today(who cares). The opposing team was over 80% from the free throw line because nobody in the crowd cared that they were shooting so many. boring. I don't know what else to say. anybody that was there can't honestly say that we(the fans) did our job.

    The crowd will never get as jacked up as the 80's because shot clock oriented basketball is going to cause a whole bunch of snoozers.

    I bet people will be telling their grandkids they were at the epic battle in Champaign-Urbana, Ohio State 48 Illinois 39.

    I'll never understand why stuff like this happens unless booking for things has to be so far in advance that they don't intend for this to happen.

    This. People who leave early should be booed and forfeit the rest of their tickets.

    I go stand down around the walkway in games like yesterday with my family (4 & 6 year old included) when we are down to just needing to make a free throw or 2 to ice the game. I do it to avoid getting stuck in the lot for 45 minutes after the game as little kids don't walk the fastest.

    That being said I don't remember seeing anyone leave as they come down to watch, everyone stands and cheers just like they would have in their balcony seats.

    I give a pass to the elderly and those with little kids.

    Re: I hope hilton....

    Classic. Team doesn't perform well - obviously the fans' fault. Bad snowstorm? Not an excuse for neither driving from wherever you live nor walking across campus when the University isn't doing its job in keeping the sidewalks clear. Crowd is quiet? once again obviously the fans' fault. After all, it's their responsibility to be the noisiest facility in America even when the team isn't giving them anything to cheer for.

    Blame the fans - so pathetic.

    I thought the complete opposite. With 1:30 left, tech had the ball down 3 and everyone was sitting like they were watching a movie. The next time down the crowd was up, but it wasn't like it used to be.

    This was the starkest example of the poor crowd yesterday. Critical point in the game, and completely quiet in the parquet...

    Sometimes it's hard for the crowd to get back into the game after watching the team p*** away an 18 point lead mostly do to lazy and stupid play.
