Fireworks exploded Thursday among the University of Michigan’s Board of Regents, who shot down a proposal to bring fireworks to two home football games this season.
Close-proximity fireworks were under consideration for when the Wolverines take on Miami University during a late afternoon game on Sept. 13 and Penn State University during a night game on Oct. 11.
But several regents expressed concern about issues such as safety, tradition and excess in the Big House, which is the biggest collegiate stadium in the nation, seating more than 100,000.
Michigan Regents message to Athletic Director Dave Brandon:
Seriously you guys. Last season is over. And I’m trying to enjoy my fucking summer!
