U.P. Surrenders To Wisconsin’s Demand
After Wisconsin Football tweeted demands that Michigan hand over the Upper Peninsula following three wins over Michigan schools, the U.P. gave up. Just like that.
I expected more of a fight. But it never came.
After the tweet by UW following Saturday's 38-0 pasting of Michigan State, I was thinking the twitter feed @UpperPeninsula would slap back hard on the puny little student running that feed. But it didn't. It capitulated and is now tweeting as 'The Upper Peninsula of Wisconsin'.
But @UpperPeninsula just gave up. No fight. No bloodshed.
What kind of Yooper backs away from a fight with a Wiskie without at least getting his flannel shirt bloody? I am so disappointed.
It's a crying shame too, because we as Michigan schools have done pretty well lifetime against UW:
All time, Michigan State leads the series with Wisconsin, 30-23.
and Michigan leads their all time series with UW 51-16.
Hey, Wisconsin Football, did we ask for Door County after pasting your ass for 14 straight years between 1965 and 1980? Nope.
And another thing, @UpperPeninsula, you wouldn't be an upper peninsula if you belonged to Wisconsin, you would just be an extension of their dumb state.
So how about this counteroffer, @WisconsinFootball? Beat Ohio State and maybe, just maybe we'll give you Menominee. And Toledo. Ohio doesn't want it anyway.
Now go suck on some cheese!
