There was no shortage of Wisconsin royalty at the Badgers’ national semifinal game vs. Kentucky on Saturday night in Arlington, Texas. NFL stars J.J. Watt and Russell Wilson were there, and so was 2011 Heisman Trophy finalist Montee Ball, among others. Unlike his former Wisconsin teammates and current NFL rivals, Ball was there in costume – in what looked like either a frog or alligator suit.
Ball had a couple buddies with him dressed as a cow and a lion. Looks like fun, but, hats aside, they look like they belong in Minnesota’s student section at the Barn.
And, as the text of the tweets indicate, Ball and his buddies were denied access to the Wisconsin student section. No band, no access – even if you’re one of the school’s all-time greats.
