Target then apologized...

“Color us red,” Target said in a statement given to WCCO-TV. “As a Minnesota-based company, we know we are home to the Gophers.”

What a freaking disgrace. A Minneapolis based company can't even get their hometown team a dirty without screwing up. Did they by chance bring in that p-rick Glen Mason to design it? The next time The U plays a game at the Target Center I hope that their pocket schedules and programs refer to it as the WalMart Center. Unfrickingbelievable... - A Former Player

It's not just the Big 10, I've seen them print Auburn "Tigers" tops too.

Should’ve tried to pass it off as a poorly thought out “house divided” themed apparel.

Yes, Target—but is it a unisex cut? And can I wear it into your women’s changing room while I perv on girls?

NO! You must first re-identify your gender. Then yeah, sure, no problem.

“As a Minnesota-based company, we know we are home to the Gophers.” Apparently not, unless this is a statement about the rivalry game? Perhaps what Target is trying to sell here is that after Wisconsin kept the axe 14 years in a row, Minnesota finally got it in 2018 only to give it right back last season, so as a reminder, Target is officially labeling Minnesota as OWNED by Wisconsin, who will be changing Minnesota's mascot to match theirs.

Wisconsin fans should honestly be all over these. I can't imagine how fast "Michigan Buckeyes" shirts would sell out to Ohio State fans.
