Michigan Giving Away Two Tickets to Minnesota Game In Exchange for Purchasing Two Coca-Cola Products

(UPDATE: 9:07 PM): Michigan is denying all involvement:

Looks like Dave Brandon is running a tight ship up there in Ann Arbor. 

If Dave Brandon is getting fired... he's going out mega-deals blazing.

Michigan — which is no stranger to marketing gimmicks to lure fans to Michigan Stadium — has hit the rock bottom of the Dave Brandon-Brady Hoke era.

Earlier tonight, Twitter was set afire by this:

Even I was a bit skeptical. Surely Michigan isn't this desperate. The image is suspiciously grainy. MGOBLOG agreed

But it turns out I undervalued Michigan Man desperation. This too-good-to-be-true deal is actually real and going on in Michigan's student union. From a Michigan Daily writer:

Here lies Michigan football, 1879-2014. You will not be missed.

And Dave Brandon? You have angry season ticket holders on line one.
