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

Only a few weeks after sitting in the student section for a Georgia football game clad head-to-toe in body paint and spikes, Bulldogs basketball coach Mark Fox found another timely occasion for a similarly outlandish outfit. Fox wore red and white face paint, dark shades and a red and black wig at Georgia basketball's Midnight Madness event over the weekend. All that was missing from his football attire were the spiked shoulder pads and shorts, which were replaced by a crisp dark suit instead. Will we see Fox dressed up like a Georgia Spike Squad member again during basketball season? Apparently not. Tweeted Fox, "Time to retire the paint until @MarkRicht requests it. The Spike Squad has it covered -- and they're awesome!"
