    Feel the Magic Video

    I like the basketball video that has been shown at football and basketball games that includes Pete Taylor narration of past player highlights, current team players walking onto the court, and finally GMac. The video ends with the words "Feel the Magic".

    I think it would be great if the crowd shouted the phrase "Feel the Magic" when it is appears on the new video board. Can you imagine how intimidating that might be to a visiting Big XII team when a full house in Hilton shouts "Feel the Magic" in unison during a time-out. Not only are the visitors away from home in a hostile environment. They are also reminded that they up against a force that has felled many in the past and is likely to soon take their team as another victim.

    Is there a good way to get this started? Cyclone Alley was strong the first two games. If they start doing it, I think the crowd might catch onto it.

    I also think "Feel the Magic" cheers could be done just the same as I-S-U or Cyclone-Power cheers are being done now. I think the time to start this chant would be following the school song when the team comes out of the locker-room for the final warm-up before the horn sounds prior to player intros.

    Any thoughts about this?

    Sah Weet. And the last thing on the video board after we take a win: "Fear the Magic"

    Re: Feel the Magic Video

    That sounds like a good idea. I also think "Hilton Magic" could work as a chant. I think the best time to start that chant is that time with a minute left in the game when we know that we are going to win. Nothin like showing off Hilton Magic when it's in effect. I also think at the beginning of the game it could bring a good "intimidation factor."

    Words cannot explain how much I love that video. GMac simply looks like a BAMF at the end.

    ...Want something intimidating?
    ...what about the S T A R E ! ! ! ! ...OF G-Mac. Put THAT on the message sender, or on the "ribbon-of-light" when an opponent goes to the free-throw line! (and play the music of the UNDERTAKER!) ...Lol

    Re: Feel the Magic Video

    I really like the "Feel the Magic"/"Fear the Magic" chant ideas. Those are pretty cool. I would probably reverse them, though- "Fear" for before the game starts or during a time-out, and "Feel" for after we win, or when we're about to win.

    Aren't there a couple Cyclone Alley Central folks on here? Pay attention to this one; it's a great idea.

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Re: Feel the Magic Video

    I'll be honest...it sounds contrived and I don't like it. Everyone else seems to though. To me it sounds like a Saturday Night Live skit..."It's an illusion".

    That post needs to be e-mailed to Jamie Pollard as well as the people that make Cyclone Alley happen. 100% serious. I love the idea!

    Re: Feel the Magic Video

    The "Hilton Magic" chant is actually in the Cyclone Alley "handbook" that they gave out this year. I think they may just be waiting till there are more fans at the game.
