When news broke Sunday morning that Ohio State would be placing restrictions on Mirror Lake Jump participants, the backlash was swift. Students and non-students alike bristled at the mandatory wristbands, crowd-control fencing, and other steps that were seen as the school asserting control over the event.
At 10:30 p.m. Monday night, students began to probe the perimeter fencing. It appeared vulnerable.
U-S-A!! U-S-A!! chants ensued, because, why not, and the fences were soon vanquished.
The revolution was on and it would be Vined.
As many as 1,500 showed up to get wet, stay cold, insult Michigan and have a little undergrad fun. Here's the best of #MirrorLakeMonday.
