    Why doesn’t someone set up a Big Blue Madness fund and ask fans to donate to it? People could send in as little as $1. I bet the fan base would end up covering the cost.
    How much does it cost to put on the Blue-White football game? That is as close to Big Blue Madness for football as I can think of. Maybe that would put things in a little perspective too.

    UK does very little promotion for the Blue-White football game. It believes money is better spent elsewhere.
