Inaccurate. The official mascot will debut this fall in a special presser like the UTL jerseys. It must have the official block M and adidas logos on it.

Do I foresee a pig roast sometime in the Fall? They grow fast, and if Dr. Hamlet III is a 50 pound feeder pig, he should be market weight in about 6 months. Right around the time of the Ohio game. It will be interesting to see what they do for a pen for a 225 pound pig / pet.

that someone had commited.  I was euphoric for a solid minute and then I realized what it said and then actually read the post... needless to say, I'm still buckeled in, in case anyone wants to commit... I could really use a HAND getting out of this seat belt

Somehow the thought of college guys taking care of a pig during fall camp and football season seems like a bad idea. That's why this is so awesome. It can only end in a great story. Or...well...yeah....see what had happened was.

Dr. Hamlet III not only holds an advanced degree but comes with an established family history and pedigree - only the best for Michigan's offensive line indeed. 

I'll agree with what someone said above - there has to be an MGoShirt in this somewhere. This is a rather awesome development.
