Local Woman Creates "Must-Have" T-Shirt

Local Woman Creates "Must-Have" T-Shirt

Fitchburg resident Kelsey Sveum has this year's must-have T-shirt for Badger fans.

The twenty-something noticed a very distinct hand gesture that has caught on among Badger fans. At one of this season's home victories, she noticed students holding their hands up in a "W." 

At the Champs Sports Bowl last year versus Miami ("the U"), Barry Alvarez held his hands in the W formation after the Badgers beat Miami. Since then Bielema has been carrying on the tradition.

Kelsey is certain the dual hand "W" is catching on University-wide. She saw the student section doing it at a basketball game while the football team was there to be congratulated on earning a piece of the BigTen Championship.

Kelsey decided to take this idea to her computer screen right away.
