One of the reasons, other than March Madness, college basketball has been so popular is the game day atmosphere. You will be hard pressed to find a better live sporting experience than a basketball game at the Carrier Dome or Camden Indoor.
The fans have a big part in this, as does a winning team, but lets not forget the mascots. Over the years the mascot has become a big deal with some schools having tryouts that rival job interviews.
For example, to become Aubie the Tiger at University of Auburn students must complete two tryout sessions, followed by an interview where students are told to dress business professional.
