I Really Had No Idea – While I did go to a ‘UW’, it was in Eau Claire and not in Madison & for the longest time I thought when people referred to Marquette they meant the city in the UP of Michigan.  In my defense, as I have stated before, I was a late bloomer as it relates to my sports ‘fandom’ and now dedication to pretty much all Wisconsin sports teams.  So once I started this little project called, it came as something of a shock there was such a rift between Marquette fans & Badger fans.  Not being an alum of either school, I obviously have a different perspective about this and while I’ll always consider myself a Badgers fan first, I still root for the Golden Eagles when they aren’t playing the Badgers. Does that make me not a true fan of either?  I don’t think so, it just means that I support all our states’ team, just in a certain order.  Where do the rest of the non-UW/Marquette alum fans stand on this issue, I would be curious to hear.

    UW v Marquette is tricky. I didn’t go to Marquette but grew up in Madison and worked at the UW many summers.

    I think the biggest difference being the players Marquette brings are often out of state and therefore less profile for Wisconsin sports fans. (Aside from the occasional Steve Novak and now Vander Blue)

    Long story short….I would never buy a “I wouln’t root for Marquette if they were playing Iraq” T-Shirt like I would the Ohio State version.

    UWRF alum. I am with you, Badgers first, but cheer for MGE whenever they aren’t playing Bucky.
