FOOTBALL FIREWORKS
University of Michigan regents reject proposal for fireworks at games with Miami, Penn State

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, July 17, 2014 7:12 PM EDT
ANN ARBOR, Mich.


The University of Michigan regents have rejected the athletic department's proposal to light up the football field this fall with the help of fireworks displays.

The regents voted down the proposal at their meeting Thursday in Ann Arbor. The athletic department proposed using fireworks during home games against Miami University on Sept. 13 and Penn State on Oct. 11.

Thursday's votes were 4-3 against fireworks at the Miami game and 5-2 against them at the Penn State game.

The fireworks would have been set off from the Michigan Stadium field and from the stadium's east and west towers.

Regent Laurence Deitch says the shows would have been unnecessary risky. He says they also would have been disrespectful to area residents and wouldn't have upheld the tradition of Michigan athletics.
