The 17th annual Midnight Madness, which signals the start of the team's practice, drew its usual capacity crowd of 8,700. The coach of the national defending champions said he was nervous because he felt like anyone else in the stands - not knowing how his team will do this year. Photo by Janet Worne | staff
