Does anyone know if Duke is going to have the Midnight Madness next year or not........is it too soon for that announcement. I have been once when it was open to the public and thought it was awsome, but they haven't done it the past couple of years have they??? I wish they would bring it back.
The official night of midnight madness usually falls out on the students fall break. They had it in 2003, and dubbed it "Lights, Cameron, Action" (fun fact - I was in a sports marketing class at Duke at the time and I actually came up with that slogan - it was the same one that was on the poster for that year).
I just remember there was a dismal turnout for the event so I am not sure they would have it again. The Blue - White game over parents weekend is usually the official kickoff of teh Duke season for the fans i think.
Steven is right. The Blue-White Scrimmage during Parents' weekend is Duke's Midnight Madness for all intents and purposes. It usually takes place one of the last two weekends of October or the first weekend of November. The problem is that with so many parents in town, it makes it hard for the public to get access. I know a lot of kids also have their siblings come down that weekend (I did), so it's even hard for all the students to get in.

I could understand our athletic dept not really seeing a benefit to it - we have all these things already, why spend the extra money for nothing?
