Not Even This Frog Costume Could Get Montee Ball Into Final Four Student Section (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Denver Broncos running back Montee Ball, who played college football at Wisconsin, wore a frog suit to the Final Four on Saturday night.

Ball and two friends tried to join the Wisconsin student section courtside late in the second half of the Badgers' 74-73 loss to Kentucky, but were denied entrance to the floor level because they didn't have the necessary wrist bands.

The students caught wind of Ball's struggles, turned around and started chanting "let them in, let them in."

Security at AT&T Stadium didn't budge, not even after one student walked toward the stands and slipped Ball his wristband.

Ball argued profusely, and even flipped off his frog cap at one point, before stomping back to his seats. His friends followed — one dressed in a leopard suit and the other in a cow suit.
