Big Blue Madness is one of The 100 Sporting Events You Must See Live

Robert Tuchman, author of The 100 Sporting Events You Must See Live, lists Big Blue Madness as one of the 10 greatest places to cheer with the crowd. ┬áMadness joins the Daytona 500, Michigan vs. Ohio State, the Tour de France, and Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest on the top ten. ┬áHere is what Tuchman had to say about our Super Bowl:

Midnight Madness at the University of Kentucky

College basketball practice can’t start until a designated day in mid-October, so players once took the court at midnight. Now, because of NCAA regulations, the action starts about 9 p.m. In Lexington, the event attracts more than 20,000 fans. “Kentucky does it better than any other school,” Tuchman says. The Wildcats invite back former players for a huge pep rally and dunking contest. “It’s something kids camp out for. If you do it as an adult, it will be one of those throwback nights to college.”

Only 93 more days…

Go Cats.
