Suggestion for new McDonalds Deal (the Bobby Knight Special)

Many years ago when Indiana hired a then-young Bobby Knight he noticed that the campus McDonalds used to give away free fries, drink, etc when the home team hit 100 points. Knight, who or course, was Mr. Defense as a coach convinced the restaurant to change the specials to make the fans appreciate and cheer for good defense more than offense. McDonalds offered free fries, drink, etc when the Hoosiers held the opponent to UNDER 60 points. One of the little things that helped Indiana become a program emphasizing defense- which led to national championships.
Noticed the occasional posts below presumably for Mcd specials for points score. Wouldn't mind seeing a similar (to Indiana) deal at B'bg- reward the fans for cheering for defense. We will need it when the meat of the schedule comes.
