Steve Stricker attends Illini game ... in Badgers' hat

This might rub some Illinois fans wrong. Illinois alum and PGA star Steve Stricker attended Saturday afternoon’s Illinois-Wisconsin game in, of all things, a Wisconsin hat. BTN cameras even caught him cheering for the Badgers at one point.

But before Illini fans get too mad, realize this: Stricker was born and raised in Wisconsin and his wife went to Wisconsin, where her father spent 26 years as the golf coach.

Or maybe, it’s a location thing, because the link below shows Stricker in an Illini hat at Assembly Hall:

Either way, it doesn’t seem like Illinois fans will soon forget. Check out these tweets:

Uh, he was also born and raised in Wis … maybe not just his wife’s fault. Way to do your homework, announcers.
