I'm a Marquette guy so I find this latest way to get me to donate a few bucks to my school pretty creative.
Just in time for March Madness, Marquette tips off a donation game that allows you to vote for your favorite men's basketball jersey. Each donation of $10 (proceeds support the Marquette Blue & Gold Fund) enters you in a drawing for an authentic, game-worn jersey.
My pick? From a pure memories stand point 2003 gets my vote. I had an amazing time at the Final Four that year and you can't underestimate what that team did for MU. For design, my vote goes to this year's jersey. I really like it, and Jordan Brand has done a fine job with its look and feel.
