Madness in full force tonight in Kentucky and Texas A&M

 

Not even an upside-down world of football success at Kentucky and Kansas can derail the euphoria for the official opening of practice Friday night.

 

And for these purposes we can dismiss the term "Midnight Madness" in its traditional sense. There's nothing midnight about the madness anymore.

 

The NCAA allows schools to practice beginning at 7 p.m. local time for fear that too late a night was putting people on the roads at a difficult hour.

 

Still, the madness is in full force in traditional settings.

 

Head to Lexington, Ky., Lawrence, Kan., Chapel Hill, N.C., Memphis, Tenn., or plenty of other locales, and you'll find the students in a frenzied state.

 

Not everyone buys into the act. Louisville will pass. UCLA doesn't bother.

 

But at a place like Kentucky, it doesn't matter whether or not the football team is on the verge of one of its biggest home games in recent memory (against No. 1 ranked LSU on Saturday).

 

Billy Gillispie is debuting his first Kentucky team, albeit in practice, so there's no way that the Wildcat fan is going to miss out on the chance to be in Rupp Arena. That's why there will be a packed house Friday night.

 

"Everyone has been talking about it for a month, about how much fun it's going to be for the player and the fans,'' said Gillispie, who got the passionate Texas A&M fans to adjust their loyalties to embrace hoops during his tenure. He staged a midnight hoop practice at Kyle Field for the late-night yell.
