Watch Kentucky Basketball Fan’s Major Tent Fail

[Video] Video proof that UK basketball fans are insane...and some kids just can't read instructions.

Below is a time-lapsed video of Wednesday morning's festivities in Lexington as fans scrambled to get a good camping spot to hold their place in line for Big Blue Madness, the opening ceremony for Kentucky's men's and women's basketball teams. The rush to get a camp spot can actually get ugly — so much in fact that medical personnel set up stations around the site in preperation of the rush — a scramble to watch a basketball practice. We're talkin' about practice

The funny part of this video — aside from watching fans tussle like lunatics all at once to this grassy knole — is watching the guy with the yellow tent. If you look at the middle portion of the screen at the bottom, you'll see a student spend countless minutes — as the sun rises to boot — only to unsuccesfully get his tent pitched after endless attempts. Let's hope this kid isn't an engineering major.
