ASK THE BADGERS
QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
The NFL season starts this week. Who is
your favorite NFL football team?
MARISSA MERSCH // SOFTBALL // DOWNERS GROVE, ILL.
"The Bears. It's a family tradition. The number one rule
my parents gave me when I chose Wisconsin was that I
couldn't be a Packers fan. Sundays this year will be brutal because all of my roommates are Green Bay fans."
BART HOUSTON // FOOTBALL // DUBLIN, CALIF.
"Even though I'm from California, I'm a Green Bay Packers
fan. My dad is a lifelong Packers fan and actually named me
after Bryan Bartlett 'Bart' Starr. My full name is Bartlett, but
I've always chosen to go by Bart."
LIGA BLYHOLDER // WOMEN'S CROSS COUNTRY // LEE'S SUMMIT, MO.
"The Kansas City Chiefs are definitely my favorite NFL team.
I grew up in Kansas City and have always been a huge fan of
the city's sports teams. Although we haven't been the most
successful in recent years, Chiefs fans are some of the proudest
supporters you'll ever meet."
MARK ZENGERLE // MEN'S HOCKEY // ROCHESTER, N.Y.
"Sad to say, but my favorite team is the Buffalo Bills. I grew up liking
them. My whole family likes them. The neighbors. Everyone. It has been
a tough time being a Bills fan. Back when I was a little kid they lost four
Super Bowls in a row. The last time they were in the playoffs was 1999
in the Music City Miracle with the backwards lateral against Tennessee. I
was watching ESPN earlier today and they were ranked 30 out of 32, so
not too promising this year, but I'll be watching every game."
