“Michigan on the 24th was I think head and shoulders probably the worst [game] in recent years in terms of feedback from visitors,” University of Wisconsin spokesperson John Lucas said.
Selected feedback, in the form of five previously private e-mails to UW administrators, was made public at a press conference Wednesday as the university seemingly attempted to come clean about alcohol abuse within its student body.
“I have attended games at nearly every Big Ten stadium and can categorically state that Madison is the worst,” Michigan fan Mark Jacob Thomas, who reported having hot cocoa and bratwursts thrown at him at past Badger games, said in an e-mail to UW Chancellor John Wiley. “Iowa fans are nuts and Ohio State fans are hostile, but at Wisconsin, the students are drunk beyond comprehension and incredibly abusive verbally and physically."
I'm sure the disappointment of losing so dramatically had nothing to do with the motivation to email in a complaint about the Badger fans.
