Brock Mealer to drop the puck at Big Chill?

I know there has been lots of speculation on the suprise person who is dropping the puck today for the Big Chill, but I ask you who better than Brock Mealer?  I understand that the opening game vs Uconn was a very special day for the Mealer family, but if anyone deserves an encore it would certainly be Brock.  The Big Chill would be perfect!  Now I doubt this happens, but I certainly would not mind seeing this again.

I didn't know it was a surprise, but I thought that I read in an email from the athletic department that it was the director of the Big Chill film, Lawrence Kasdan.

--according to an story:

Dropping the puck

Given the weight The Big Chill carries in the event name, it only makes sense to involve Lawrence Kasdan and Barbara Bededek, the two co-writers of the screenplay for the 1983 film. Kasdan and Bededek will drop the puck in a pregame ceremony. Kasdan received his master's degree from Michigan in education.

Kasdan went on to write screenplays for "The Empire Strikes Back," "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and "Return of the Jedi."

Video clips from "The Big Chill" will be shown on the scoreboard during breaks in the game, and music from the film's soundtrack will serve as backdrop for postgame fireworks.
