Montee Ball played football at the University of Wisconsin and attended the Final Four Saturday night in North Texas. The Denver Broncos running back showed up at the Wisconsin/Kentucky game wearing a lime green frog suit (alligator?). Late in the Badgers eventual one-point loss, Ball and friends dressed as a lion and cow, tried to make their way into the Wisconsin student section where they were summarily denied by AT&T Stadium security since they didn’t have the proper wristbands reports the Associated Press.
A student tried to give Ball his wristband, but that didn’t sway the security staff. It looks like the entire ordeal played out in front of the AP’s Mark Long, who wrote the story.
Rest assured the NCAA isn’t going to make seating exceptions for anyone, even former student-athletes who went pro in their sport of choice.
