Badgers Throw Quality Shade at Marquette
LET’S GO! Marquette’s schedule got released yesterday. In a perfect world, we would have a blog breaking down the Big East schedule and beyond. That’s not going to happen. But my favorite moment of the whole unveil was finding out that Wisconsin-Marquette will be a 4:00 pm nationally televised start at the Fiserv Forum creating a crazy atmosphere. Then add to the mix, Wisconsin’s hoops’ Twitter account lobbed over some amazing shade, and it’s a tough look for those whom say this isn’t a rivlary game when the main Wisconsin hoops Twitter account says just as much with their tweet.
Wins in 4 of our last 6 trips east on I-94.
Can’t wait to see what this new building is all about.
Wisconsin vs. Opponent

Everyone is having fun with this. Marquette fans want to make opponent shirts. Same with Wisconsin fans. This is what we wanted from this rivalry. Something, someone to actually embrace it and call it what it is for the state of Wisconsin. I know some Badgers players in the past like Zak Showalter downplayed the significance, but this game matters so much. Marquette blew out Wisconsin last year in an absolute ass-kicking, and they’ll be looking for revenge. I love this matchup, I love that we get it every year on the same weekend.
Can’t wait to pull up this tweet when a Badgers reporter says this isn’t rivalry.
