Went to last years and was totally embarrassed to see what was presented. Food ran out within minutes. Lawn games and dance games. Players walking around. I hope who ever planned it is no longer involved. Maybe a basketball should be seen at madness.

They handed out season tickets at the event last year, but it doesn't seem like they'll be ready for that this year. Sounds like tickets will be mailed out the week of the 23rd.

Hey everyone - been awhile since I’ve posted but just wanted to stress that kids, families & non-student fans are more than encouraged to come out for Madness.

There will be a mix of performances from band, cheer/ramettes, some special guests...even the teams will be performing. Plus some fun games & contests that include both fans/players.

We’ll do full introductions for each team and debut the new pre-game pump videos as well. No practicing or scrimmaging though.

The entire event will only be a little over an hour long. We try to keep everyone engaged and the energy high.

Hope to see some KB folks there! Can’t wait for this season.

Didn't you watch the video posted above? Coach Hurley won last night, retroactively won every previous contest and has made all future contests obsolete. Ryan Preston was runner up

hey everyone, I'm a newbie to the board, so don't hammer me too much. Been a fane of Rhody since 91 and Jeff Kent. But is CFL some abbreviation for Baron and some of his dome decisions back in his coaching era? Just trying to figure out what CFL stands for?

Thanks

CFL is an abbreviation for coach for life. It meant that with the length of Baron's contract extension
he would be coach for life and it wasn't being said as a positive thing either.
