Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers' All-Pro quarterback, offered some insight on his rooting interests following Wisconsin's Final Four-clinching victory over Arizona on Saturday night.

What's the big deal if he's joining the same fans who root for him every Sunday during the fall in cheering on Bo Ryan and the Badgers?
