Nowhere else in the United States is there such a facility as the University of Michigan Football Stadium. “The Big House” has a capacity of nearly 115,000 occupants, and represents the largest destination to watch American football in terms of seats. During the blowout season opener against Appalachian State and within the sea of people waiting for a flaccid hot dog and “popped maize,” there was a tent flanked by two Cadillac banners.
Once we got closer, we noticed a new 2015 Cadillac Escalade with the University of Michigan football helmet stamped on the sides of the rear doors. But it was flanked by something far more interesting: a 2014 ATS Sedan entirely wrapped in the Wolverines’ winged helmet livery. We could see passionate members of the alumni association scooting around in it down Interstate 94 with a license plate to match. We wonder how Michigan State feels about this.
