i mean, it is still a "kneeling pad". Keep a few near the bathroom at Rick's, I'm sure people will come up with a decent use for them.
Five Alternative Uses For Your Worthless Seat Pad
It's still July, barely, which means stories like Michigan banning seat pads from the Big House — while season ticket holders, as if they haven't dropped enough dough, are provided the option to lease an official Wolverine Seat for $35 per season — still move the needle around these parts. Like many of you, I've owned an officially licensed U-M seat cushion, but not the AD-approved permanent rental, and used it at games for years. Those are now worthless, right?
Not so fast, says the M-Den. They're dual-purpose, you see...
A kneeling pad with a handle? This is innovation, not a blatant money-grab. American ingenuity at its finest. In that vein, we crowdsourced some ideas for alternative uses for these totally useful hunks of branded foam.
Looking for something to toss around the Diag? Look no more! The handle provides an easy grip for throwing, and the soft foam interior ensures that nobody's hurt when your toss inevitably lands nowhere near your intended target.
EMERGENCY FLOATATION DEVICE
Why are these women so happy to be jumping out of a doomed plane? With their officially-licensed floatation devices, they know that as long as they survive the impact with that large, rapidly-approaching body of water, they'll be floating in style while waiting for the Coast Guard.

Dave Brandon himself was kind enough to model the latest in Michigan-branded winter fashion. Perfect for staying warm during November football games or going incognito when the fanbase finally turns against you in full, penniless force.

Lookin' good. But if you sit on it, they will shoot you.
MY VERY OWN MGOPANIC ROOM
Provides extra padding for the next time you're waiting out a commit watch/unwanted Buckeye visitor.
What an unnecessary change for Wolverine fans. As if the Rich Rod years weren't enough, those of us with lower back pain will no longer be able to use our approved-style cushions with seat backs. With TV and Big 10 extending the games to sell more beer and car ads, my trusty cushion made the long games way more enjoyable. Didn't expect such unbridled greed from Michigan Man Brandon.
After just paying through the nose yesterday for some extra ND and Ohio tickets at absurd prices, now this is slapped in our faces. Just another money grab. i come to all home games, which means travel, hotel, etc. and it isn't inexpensive. Michigan and a couple of dozen other programs still are in the black, but at some point, people will say enough is enough, which may be why NCAA football attendance is dropping.
What's next, vending machines to use the bathrooms?
Pay toilets and blanket rentals soon to follow!
