    That would be pretty cool, give HB a taste of what it's like! I'm sure if an Ames High game was timed and promoted well, it would draw a big crowd.

    How can football teams play in the UNI-Dome? And I am not talking playoffs.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Inviting HB's high school team to play at Hilton? The NCAA would have a field day.

    My daughter's team plays at half time of a couple KU women's games each year. Been doing it for 3 years.

    I'm surprised we didn't try this back in '90-'91.

    We had standing room only at the AHS gym my junior and senior year's when DSM North and Hurl Beechum came to town. They even raised the curtain and added temporary bleechers in the 2nd gym. Several ISU players were watching from the east balcony.

    Ames and North were two of the top teams in the state both years and the rivalry was pretty fierce. Both teams held serve at home with neither team winning by more than 6 points or so. Of course, we blew them out of the Barn during the State Tournament in '91. Fred was lighting it up early and often!!

    Ames played a year at Jack Trice for an entire season, but granted it was due to renovation work at the high school that forced it. So someone go tear up the high school bball court, then we can.

    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:

    Ames High has already played in Hilton....during the 1975-76 season with Chuck Harmison. They played at least one if not more in Hilton that year. They went undefeated and won the state title.

    I'm guessing we're talking about different ages of girls.

    Little kids playing around at half time verses high schoolers is a whole different story.

    Probably the last time North has had any sports success.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Those were my high school days as well (Valley), and both Ames and North were exceptionally talented teams. As I recall Ames had several good players to complement Hoiberg (Koch, a guard with an African name and another 6'5" swingman). We somehow beat them in OT at home, as I remember (which may be incorrect - like Homer Simpson imagining talking to the president), but they liquified us in Ames by 30+. One of my good friends had the honor of being lit up for mega-points by both Beechum and Hoiberg that year. Something to put on the resume.

    That 1990-1991 Ames team still stands out to me as the best HS basketball team I've seen in Iowa.

    Re: Could Ames High ever play a home game in Hilton?

    I would think that they could play there if there is nothing to do with ISU. I doubt they would be allowed to play before the ISU game like they do for the Energy at WF. But if you were to schedule it on a day that ISU isn't playing then I don't see how the NCAA would have a problem.
