Espn posted an article last night about some of the major midnight madness programs going on around the country, and they actually gave maryland some attention. Maryland's description mentioned the original midnight madness, how many alumni came back this year and how gary williams is no longer running the show. However i was really interested in the section that described arizona's "midnight madness" or lack there of.
"Arizona coach Sean Miller isn't a big proponent of celebrating the start of practice.
"Our red-blue game really has become midnight madness. Your midnight madness is just a show because at this point your guys don't know enough of what you do to even play. They're almost playing a glorified pickup game," he said. "I think it means more to them and all the things that happen in a midnight madness happen in the afternoon, at a sane time so if you want to go to bed at 10:00, you can. You don't have to be in McKale at 1:30 or 2 in the morning and then have to get back up as a college coach or player the next day. To me, it makes a lot more sense across the board."
Personally i think that is pathetic. Whats the problem with showing a little school spirit and getting hyped about the upcoming season? Also this goes completely against Maryland tradition as lefty started midnight madness and we mean to continue it.
all and all, Turgeon General > sean miller, and im really glad we have him.
