Wisconsin was sent warmups that had the wrong nickname on them

Friday December 19th, 2014

Sports apparel can be a confusing business at times. By itself, adidas sponsors more than 75 U.S. colleges, which sounds like a lot to keep track of. 

Wisconsin forward Duje Dukan found this out first-hand, when he was sent a warmup that had the correct colors and logo, but said "Bearcats" on it.

Oops. That nickname, of course, belongs to fellow adidas-school Cincinnati.

We're sure it was an honest mistake, and hey, now the Badgers are the proud owners of what's probably the only Wisconsin Bearcats apparel in the world.
