Buttons

It just wouldn't be complete if we cheered on the Bears without paying our due respects to the opposition.  Hence, we have the infamous buttons, a different set for each football game (plus a special one for homecoming) churned out every year.  The Band proudly wears them, and we pass them out for free to anyone at the football game who wants one!

The current season's buttons are displayed below.  They are only released the Tuesday before the football game!  Don't forget to get your hands on one before they are all gone.
