I know this was not his main NHL team, but Chris Chelios with Detroit.

Other Badgers that have played for the Wings:

Brendan Smith

Brian Rafalski

Curtis Joseph

I stayed away from other sports at Wisconsin because NFL and NBA don't have red/white-only teams and including teams with red/white and other colors would be kinda cheesy. There could be the Cincy reds, but no baseball at Wisconsin...(since before my time anyway)

Dick Butkus

Why do the Illini uniforms look yellow.

Partially because it's a color of a black-and-white photo. I haven't been able to find good photos of that era (or of game-worn unis) but I'm pretty sure 1) the orange across the board was more muted and much more yellowish, closer to Tennessee's shade, and 2) the pants were off from the helmet, even more yellow.

Basically the same colors (Boise's blue is a shade lighter), same template, same mascot. Beat that. B)

But he changed his number! :D

Redskins have a few Florida State guys, the team that stole the spear logo from the Skins.

He's also about to be cut because he's a pothead, but also Fred Davis from USC.

funny thing is that if the league cut every pothead, you'd have rosters of about 20 guys on each team...also funny is that the league is indicating that they are willing to relax their stance on cannabis now that we have legal pot in WA and CO.

the nba would simply fold if they had to release all of the potheads.
