The Green Bay Packers moved on from Aaron Rodgers this past off-season after being with the team for 18 years. Obviously, Rodgers has created a life in the state of Wisconsin and made it clear how much he loved the area upon his departure from the team.
Rodgers has certainly become familiar with all of the Wisconsin Sports teams during his time in Green Bay. He is even a minority owner of the Milwaukee Bucks. However, Rodgers decided to take a shot at the Wisconsin Badgers Football team in a recent interview.
Former Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers Takes Shot At The Wisconsin Badgers After Their Loss To The Iowa Hawkeyes
A sarcastic shot at the Big Ten West was taken by Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers on the Pat McAfee show this week:
“First of all, hello Ty…Are you excited about the big 15-6 barnburner that happened this weekend?” Rodgers asked. “Shoutout to a huge, entertaining win.”
This is clearly a reference to Iowa’s win over Wisconsin last weekend in which the teams combined for 18 punts, five turnovers, and only 27 first downs. According to him, that style of football doesn’t offer much entertainment.
Ben Kenny of the BadgersWire fired back at Aaron Rodgers in an incredible way:
This is where I’ll disagree completely. Many love to make their jokes about the occasional offensive ineptitude in the Big Ten West and the final scores of the games. But as Matt Rhule said earlier this week, it’s truly beautiful football.
Rodgers can go enjoy his Cal Golden Bears who haven’t had a winning season in four years. They average nearly 30 points per game! (But also allow more than 31 points per game).
I’ll defend the Big Ten West until its demise, or in other words until the end of this season. Go watch the MAC if you want meaningless points because nobody knows how to defend.
