    Bball Intro - They might have it right!

    They did the intro from the Iowa game, but edited out the Iowa only highlights and mixed in some sweet one from years past...including R. Clarks dunk against Virginia. They also cut down some of the long glances by the young boy...but over all played pretty well...considering the very small crowd. The students should get behind this...once they get back.

    Now just keep it!!!!

    I agree, it was much better...still too long for me though.

    its better but still think it's too low key and not a crowd energizer. we wonder where Hilton Magic has been, these little things are part of the reason it has gone into hibernation...

    Re: Bball Intro - They might have it right!

    I think they should play it right before the team comes out. If they timed it right, as the doors open into the arena on the video the team could come running out.

    Imagine what it would be like against KU, with clips of all the great victories we've had against them, and then BAM! team hits the court to a wall of sound from the fans. Awesome!

    Then they could keep the actual introductions more up beat.

    Re: Bball Intro - They might have it right!

    I wish they'd just get rid of the video intro and play the old Hamms beer song at the start of the game that they used to play in the 80's. That song whipped the crowd into a frenzy every time and really helped originate Hilton magic. But, in the name of political correctness, the song was dropped because a few people complained that it was offensive to native Americans.

    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: Bball Intro - They might have it right!

    I returned to Hilton last night after about a 2 year absence, due to location. I think the intro is not something that get's the crowd going. To me it's more of a tribute video you would see at an awards ceremony or something to honor a coach/player. Get some music pumping and let's get rocking!!!!

    Re: Bball Intro - They might have it right!

    The little boy actor did a phenomenal job and the fact that he is from Ames and is a huge Cyclone fan adds on to it. However, long-term his role will wear out. I would recommend going with straight old highlights along with Pete Taylor and John Walters voice overs. GOOSE BUMP SAUCE!

    OH MY GOD PEOPLE SHUT UP ABOUT THE BEER SONG ALREADY.

    I'd like to point out that the song, in fact, sucks anyway. Additionally, students wouldn't get energized because that commercial hasn't been on TV for years.
