    Magic is better than circuses. I don't like ventriliquists either. or clowns. or operas. The nineteenth century called and wants its entertainment back. Magic is good though.

    Just remember: when a mob of clowns attacks, go for the juggler.

    Isn't it Madness (the event, not the ongoing homecourt advantage that we have)?

    Some people have complained about saying "Midnight Madness". Now we have "Hilton Magic" instead of Hilton Madness. We're only missing someone using "Midnight Magic".

    Interesting tidbit about the origins of Hilton Madness on Twitter today:

    It seems like ours is geared toward families and junior cyclones while KU and others is more toward the student body.

    Bumping this since it's...this Friday?! My wife just mentioned it to me and it surprised me that it's this week. I haven't heard or seen much promotion about the event this year. It's just my feeling, but I wonder if it will be a little subdued this year after having a down season. Are people planning on going?

    We are. But I haven't heard much buzz about it around here either.

    I'm in but, the buzz seems down. I always like getting a peek at both teams early. Never know who any of the new people are on either team at the start of the season.

    I really liked the format last year. Best ever. The cardinal and gold game that alternated quarters between the men and the women was cool.

    For the record, at the CF Tip-Off party, I asked who was responsible for last year's Hilton Madness format (that I really liked) and Coach Prohm gave credit to Micah Byers.

    Doesn't look like this will be on Cyclones.TV - hopefully someone puts it on Facebook Live or Periscope!
