Friday Declared Badger Red Day

Governor Scott Walker has declared Friday as Badger Red Day throughout Wisconsin in anticipation of the University of Wisconsin Men’s Basketball Sweet 16 game versus the University of Florida Gators.

“The University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team is playing some of their best basketball at the right time! For the fourth straight season, the Badgers have advanced to the Sweet 16. Behind the leadership of their talented seniors and coach Greg Gard, the Badgers are using their 8 seed to show the nation why Big Ten Conference basketball is so exciting. The State of Wisconsin will be behind the Badgers tomorrow as they look to continue their winning ways. Go Badgers and On Wisconsin,” said Walker.

Governor Walker has entered a friendly wager to Florida Governor Rick Scott. Governor Walker bet Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery Cheese Curds & HARIBO Gold-Bear Gummi Candy that the Wisconsin Badgers will win, while Governor Scott wagered some Kermit’s Key West Key Lime Pie for a Florida victory.
