Bollman (let's refer to his offense 'Walrusball' going forward) has now produced two games where the Buckeyes failed to score more than seven points. He is on his way to becoming known nationally as the Greg Robinson of offensive coordinators for 2011.

In this annarbor.com article regarding the contract signed for the UM/Alabama game there is this gem of a quote.
"The U-M marching band will receive free entry and reserved seating. U-M cheerleaders, dance team and mascots will also receive free entry."
Do you think this is a contingency plan or that there is a legitimate possibility of a mascot (or multiple mascots) unveiled in the opening game next year?
Let the meltdown begin.
Way OT: Interesting Article on "the Education Bubble" from U of Iowa. Curious about impact to UofM (and MSU)?
I found this article from the Iowa Press Citizen about the the impact to universities of the obvious "education bubble". Read here: http://www.press-citizen.com/article/20110924/OPINION01/109240317/How-UI-can-survive-after-education-bubble-bursts?odyssey=nav%7Chead
Also read Peter Thiel's take from back in April 2011. Highly recommended.
I'm curious what others think about the education bubble and the potential impact to the University of Michigan, etc.? Will it be major or minor?
