"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.
