I assume you are relatively young, so you don't realize that even when Madison sucked at athletics (i.e. when I went to school there), we (UW Madison students) considered ourselves superior to students who attended other schools. From living in the TC for a few years, I have to say this is probably no different from how UM students consider themselves compared to UW, Duluth, Mankato, etc.

I base my fashion sense on what doesn't itch.
