Welcome to Madison to all of the Marquette faithful. You know, the school you might have gotten into if you had been just a little smarter of worked just a little harder. This is the biennial opportunity for the unwashed masses to see how the other half lives.

A ballsy post from Yellow Anonymous.

At least the rivalry is bringing out your true colors.

That's a GREAT picture. In the foreground, one of the finest gentlemen ever to walk the sidelines of a basketball court. In the background, one of the world's most shameless self promoters. One worked for a world class public university; the other, for a run-of-the-mill mid major parochial school.

Nice picture of "Dirty Al" McGuire, displaying his special brand of "class".

I was accepted to both univeristies. Made the right decision, Marquette. The liberal ilk and communist mantra from Madison disgusts me as an American.

I love it. All these Badger fans talking about "humble public servants". Makes me want to puke.

The sanctimounious Badgers are comparing an athlete department that spends more on equipment in one school year then Marquette spends on their entire budget.

Take your public fund athletic program and ask yourself how many National Championships you've won. Hell, how many trips to the Final Four did you make?

Badgers = Barely the best athletic teams Wisconsin Tax Dollars can buy.
