    Midnight Madness produces some memorable moments each year, so The Dagger is chronicling the best ones from this October's lineup. If you spot something we missed, let us know here or here.

    The day before Musketeer Madness, Xavier coach Chris Mack encouraged fans to attend and hinted he might have a surprise in store for those who did. "Oh, & the Macks got something for ya!" he tweeted. Something turned out to be a memorable entrance. Mack emerged wearing a backwards red cap and oversized dollar-sign chain and rapping the Beastie Boys classic "Paul Revere" with the help of daughters Lainee and Hailee. Mack won't be touring with Ad-Rock and Mike D anytime soon but credit him for an enthusiastic performance. Of course, the big question is whether any of Mack's players actually knew the song he was performing. The Beastie Boys originally released "Paul Revere" in 1985, nearly a decade before any of the Musketeers players were born.
