'Smart' promotion by MU

Now this is a great promotion by Marquette:

Marquette Athletics announced Saturday that two students will win a blue or gold Marquette-themed Smart Car as part of the 2008-09 Fanatics Rewards Program. The Smart Cars are courtesy of Bergstrom Automotive and have a retail value of about $17,000 each.

With the new freshmen on campus and the rest of the student body returning, the athletic department is pulling out all the stops to rally the base to maintain a high level of interest in the program.

The incoming crop of freshmen students figure to be at the institution for another stellar era of hoops --- Rivals.com currently has Buzz Willliams' 2009 recruiting class as the 8th best in the nation (and incredibly, only the fourth best in the Big East). With the recent departure of Trevor Mbakwe, Buzz will be able to smartly add to the haul in the coming months. Bob Gibbons slots MU in as the nation's 5th best class (behind two other Big East schools, wow). Talk about it at MUScoop.
