Ethan Happ Waves Bye to his Gopher Haters
Ethan Happ is one of the most mild-mannered guys in college basketball. He is not a Tyler Hansbrough by any shape of the word, or someone who tends to run his mouth. But after the Minnesota game last night where Wisconsin came out victorious 56-51, Happ waved to the student section and proceeded to talk shit to them as as well. I had zero idea the Badgers star had it him to berate an opposing team’s student section but here we are. Love the move by him. Wisconsin is very much a vanilla program, and you add Davison plus a shit-talking Happ, you have something here.
I had no idea Happ had this in him. Need more players going back at student sections. pic.twitter.com/pc73cyNrUX

Hopefully, Happ doesn’t apologize for his actions today or tomorrow. I fucking hate when players do that. When Baker Mayfield planted the flag in the ‘O’ at Ohio State, I was so mad that he said sorry after it. If Barry Alvarez or Greg Gard makes the Badgers forward ‘say sorry’, this whole thing is for naught. It’s not like he’s in the wrong. Minnesota’s student section chants ‘Fuck the Badgers’ all night, and he wanted to send them off the right way. Minnesota never beat Happ on their homecourt.
Badgers-Gophers rivalry is getting pretty intense on the basketball court. Both games were close. Both teams won on the other’s gym. I would not hate a third version in the Big Ten Conference Tournament. Right now, the teams are on the same side of the bracket, but with a few weeks left, things can definitely change there.
