Mid-day Madness: Campout 2.0 begins

Two years ago I woke up at 9:00am on a Saturday, an unheard of thing at the time, rolled out of bed and booted up the laptop. I then ventured out to and found tickets to the last Billy Gillispie Midnight Madness to ever take place... free with a $5 'handling' charge. I then fell back to sleep. Overall, the process took 3 minutes.

The same tickets in Rupp Arena that will be on sale at 7:00am Saturday October 2nd. However, it is today that the process begins instead of 6:57am Saturday. Today, students, teachers, people on vacation, and those that are unemployed begin to lineup outside of Memorial Coliseum and the Joe Craft Center to snatch those same tickets. They started the 72 hour process of playing cornhole, drinking coffee, playing cards, using public bathrooms, partaking in general debauchery, and the lucky ones will be getting the desired  front row seats. All to watch their beloved UK Wildcats partake in a HUGE I would love to be at again this year.

I always love to see the pictures that come from this event and they have slowly began to roll out.
