but I cannot find his tweet that confirms that. Either way, if it happened during the rush or amidst it, that is not good.

I never understood this practice. Same with "rioting" after a team win. I was young and dumb(er) once, but it never occurred to me to storm a court or start a fire in the streets because of a sporting event. Protesting the Vietnam conflict, sure, but not for a sporting event. :unsure:

Good to see your post on the new board,

I know it was an in-state rivalry, and the Clones had a big comeback, but Iowa isn't even ranked. Storming the court for beating the 35th-or-so team merits a court storming? Really?

IMHO an in-state rivalry trumps any ranking considerations. ISU led by 2 for the first two + minutes, were down 20 in first half, down 14 at half, down 20 again 4 minutes into 2nd half. Took the lead and the win with 10 seconds left. No doubt a lot of pent up emotions. In the video I saw, it didn't look like that wild of court storming.

I watched the game- Hawkeyes gave game away. Iowa out played clones for 38 min. Some confusion on whether they had a final timeout to use- TV graphic said yes and FranFran thought so too but seemed to think not after a pause. Raucous and hostile crowd carried the day - booed Iowa player who went down after taking a finger to eye- "Hilton Hostility" let's say. Justified court storming - in this case, not a leg to stand on.

LJW: Injured Iowa newspaper columnist brings up court-storming memories at Kansas

Wow that was an eventful day: Norm Stewart, JoJo White, Nick Collison, and fans on the court.
