UK fans limited to three-day ticket campout
By Diamond Leung
Kentucky fans eager to score free tickets and prime seating locations to next month's Midnight Madness event have been asked to please not begin lining up outside the ticket windows until three days before the ticket distribution actually begins.
Citing the request of campus public safety officials and with coach John Calipari spreading the word, the school is requesting fans not to start lining up until Sept. 29 at 7 a.m. when the ticket window doesn't open for another 72 hours.
The athletic department is providing portable restroom facilities for those in line, and you have to wonder if Kentucky fans are crazy enough to camp out in advance of the actual campout for free tickets?
Because the Big Blue Madness event at Kentucky -- the birthplace of the John Wall dance that went viral -- is expected to be quite the event.
