Not MI, but did anybody see video of Michigan's colorguard dancing in those inflatable T-Rex costumes to Jurassic Park?

That's really cool. I wonder if they did some pro-shot footage of that--could make something really entertaining from it.

It's not cool. It's Michigan. It would be cool if we did it.

Depends, of course, on which blow up doll you are discussing.......

I spent five hours--enjoyed five hours--of marching bands at a collegiate marching band festival in Allentown including a lot of smaller schools that put some good performances on the field, as well as UMass and UDel and thought, hey, I'd go to a Big Ten marching festival. The logistics would be difficult for the more distant bands--Rutgers, Maryland, Nebraska--but line up Soldier Field on a Sunday when the Bears are out of town, 15 minutes per Band, 3.5 hours if everybody plays. Yeah, I could do that and I bet you'd fill the stadium. There are a lot of MB fans out there.
