Bad hose or seriously plugged up air filter it's about the only logical answer to the hose collapsing.

Maybe the hose is no good anymore. The rubber material may have deteriorated.

It's either a restriction (air filter or air inlet, anything before the point of collapse) or the material making up the hose is too weak. Most intake kits I've delt with arnt soft rubber, what system are you using?
