Damn, I thought that Kentucky played the same SEC teams as Florida. Are there two different SEC Conferences? Now I agree that Kansas and Duke can't and Michigan can't either. Big 10 football sucks. Kentucky brings in basketball recruits for football games (after all Kentucky was one of the first football teams in the South) and they bring in football recruits to basketball games. Hell they even take them to Keeneland. The big difference is that Florida can't bring in recruits to MM in front of 22,000 fans. The first Midnight Madness at UK was initiated by Joe B. Hall and it was a lot like Big Blue Madness is today. It was not a track event but an introduction to the players and a game. Your knowledge of Midnight Madness seems to be riddled with an absence of facts. MM was going on long before ESPN existed.
