    I was at the 2013 game against Iowa where we trailed pretty much the entire game only to come back and win as Gesell choked away a couple free throws at the end. I just don't quite remember it being as loud as Aaron White described in an interview I read that he did for BCDivide that got posted yesterday. Anyone else remember the floor shaking that night? Here's some highlights below and it doesn't seem that nuts but it's always louder when you're actually there.

    It was insanely loud. In between Gesell's free throws, my friends and I in the 14th row of the balcony had to shout just to tell a quick joke, and we all knew it was getting louder for the 2nd one.

    Hilton owned that guy. Never had a chance.

    I could see the urine running down Gesell's leg from my seat

    Okie State in 1992 and Kansas in 1995. Probably the loudest I've been.

    I was there for this one. This is the first time I recall it being reported that the floor and basket were shaking from crowd noise...

    Agreed on both...was at both as well.

    I was in the top row ISU side behind the basket for the Lafester game....the dead silence before he hit a shot before halftime, followed by the explosion I think may take it for me.

    It was quoted by a couple of players on both teams that the floor was shaking at the end of this game:



    EDIT: Sorry I'm late. I couldn't resist watching it again when I found it.

    Agreed, I was in the student section about 6 rows off the court for this game and it was one of the loudest events I've ever been at. Recent games might have been as loud, but I have to sit in the balcony now and its not as loud up there as it is on the floor.

    I was there for that OSU game in 1992. Hands down the loudest I've ever heard an arena.

    Iowa game sounded more like relief than anything.

    Games like that OSU game were insanity at its finest.

    I thought it looked pretty crazy in 2015 when ISU came back to beat OU after getting whooped in the first half.

    Don't think any game will top OU down 20 2nd half for consistently loud.

    There are several game clips I never tire of watching. Both the 1992 OSU and the 22-0 comeback against OU are high on the list.

    After rewatching it, the poor guy didn't stand a chance after missing that first one.

    Was at the Iowa game, it was pretty dang loud. Can confirm.

    The only other time I personally have heard it close to that loud was the big OU comeback, and the 5 minutes or so after Naz hit that last second 3 to tie Okie State. Everyone was absolutely going bonkers then.
