BADGER HATE WEEK: Now With Twice The Hate

It's a very unique opportunity we have this year.

Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

Badger Hate Week is a fine tradition here at Anonymous Eagle, as we mark the week of the Marquette-Wisconsin men's basketball game with every horrible thing that we can find about the Badgers.

But, this year... this year is something special.

As you all know, at 1:15 pm Central on Saturday, the men's basketball teams will face off in the Kohl Hole in Madison. But at 7pm on Saturday, the women's basketball teams square off, and this one is at the McGuire Center.

That's right, a dual location Badger Hate Week doubleheader!

If you've missed the news (and I don't blame you, it's hard to keep up with everything with all the Big East titles that Marquette has been winning this school year), Terri Mitchell has her Golden Eagles out to a 6-1 start, their best mark since opening 7-1 in 2010-2011, which not coincidentally, also happens to be the last time that Marquette qualified for the NCAA tournament.

So make your plans now to come out and support Marquette in both of their games on Saturday. Remember: Wisconsin football is a hilarious embarrassment, so it's just about time for Badger fans to pretend that they haven't spent the last 11 months declaring that they don't actually care about basketball.
