Three Thoughts from Big Blue Madness

Last night, 24,000 fans once again showed up to Rupp Arena to watch what was basically glorified starting lineup introductions and some practice drills. As a kid I was enamored by this whole thing, but as I get older and older, it has lost it’s luster a little bit. Back when it was Midnight Madness, it was cool. I guess it is still kind of cool, but it’s not my cup of tea anymore...
