Next time this Wisconsin fan orders Badgers fan gear, he’ll likely do so in the U.S.
That way, he won’t risk having another Wisconsin flag with another school’s name on it. That’s what happened when he ordered a Badgers flag from a company in China.

The flag correctly depicts Bucky Badger, Wisconsin’s official mascot, but below it reads “Washington State Cougars.” Granted, the schools have similar school colors — Wisconsin’s are white and cardinal while Washington State’s are grey and crimson — but these programs are 1,706 miles apart and do not even compete in the same conference. Their similarities are few and far between.
Luckily for this fan, Wisconsin scheduled a home-and-home with Washington State all the way back in June of 2013. The Badgers host the Cougars on Sept. 10, 2022 and then travel to Pullman, Wash. on Sept. 10, 2023. Those are two golden opportunities for this fan to show off the multidimensional flag.
But then again, by that point, the fan will have had plenty of time to order a normal flag — if they so dare.
