VIDEO: Mark Gottfried jumped out of an airplane for Midnight Madness

By Matt Norlander | College Basketball Writer

In terms of entrances, you can't set a bar higher than this.

Because it's thousands of feet in the air.

N.C. State coach Mark Gottfried went to the trouble of jumping out of a plane, then getting in a chopper, then cruising over to the arena for the Wolfpack's Friday night festivities. With each year college basketball is getting more extravagant in how it shows of its anticipation and spirit for the season ahead.

We're not complaining. And many more Midnight Madness videos are on their way.
