I dont get how how it's so divided. Wisconsin has 3 (sometimes 4) great basketball teams, be a fan!
Wisconsin - 9 (and another who played HS ball in Wisconsin)
UWM - 9
UWGB - 7
Marquette - 2 (one is a senior walk-on)
You know what these numbers represent? That'd be the number of Wisconsin natives on each team.
Back in the day, I loved watching all these teams play, and even though I was a Badger fan first, I still pulled for the others to do well. It was a state pride thing.
I think those are legitimate points, and its why a lot of Wisconsin born Marquette fans do support UW, albeit quietly, in football and basketball. Of course there's a long line of Badger skill players that werent exactly true Badgers either if you know what I mean.
But I truely dont understand the animosity UW fans have toward Marquette. What do you care, except for that one game. For Marquette the "rivalry" is a big deal because they have nothing else. No football, no geographic rivalries in basketball and truth be told they are a "minority" in this state when comes to fan attention and allegiance so it is a big deal. But for UW fans there's no football rivalry anymore with MU, there's no conference rivalry, it basically comes down to one game a year.
Yet we have jerk offs on this board
starting MU/Idaho State threads. What do you care? Oh I just hate MU fans' cockiness. Come on. Have you read any of AA's or TW's posts. All passionate fans are arrogant about their teams. If you dont want to cheer for MU fine, but then stop cluttering this board with comments about a team you supposedly dont even follow or care about.
I may have started it but i have fun with it and dont get angry, at least i dont have to resort to name calling. the difference between me and you is that i have fun with the argument and am mature about it and you just get pissed off and call people names and then i try to calm everyone down a little and you call people names again lol, great way to handle things by the way i hope it takes you far in life.
A pessimist is always alone. An optimist is always just two people away from a threesome.
