    Hilton South Reputation

    Much has been written and discussed in Kansas City about the mass invasion of Cyclone fans. They did show up in very respectful numbers but I must admit during the game I was underimpressed. I am a "200" level guy (in that I only afford the upper deck). At half, me and my screw machine moved down to awesome seats at half court...across from the lower level Clone fans. Anyone in those sections should be ashamed. Yes that game was ugly but was not over until the final minutes. It was embarrassing watching you nap. Many of you didn't even stand for the playing of the fight song. I hope you enjoy sitting in your seats watching other teams play.

    I watched on TV and it sure didn't remind me of the mid 80s when we had Kemper rocking and the only fan base that could out-do us was the KU contingent.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    The games you remember are most likely from the weekend. When I have made the trip to KC, we always have gone down Friday and stayed for the weekend. Rest assured, if the boys would have got through the first round game, there would have been a lot more fans for later rounds.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    I can't really blame them, I was literally almost lulled to sleep in the second half. They paid good money to travel and watch an 11th place team - we should be thrilled the showed up.

    Agreed. Just like Hilton wasn't as exciting as the 80's-90's. You can only get so excited about the worst team in the big 12.

    Very true. Many people only show up if we're playing on the weekend, its always been that way. There also isn't a great supply of tickets available for in the 1st round like there are in later rounds.
