So I'm currently in NJ doing an internship for a Civil Engineering company. Being the intern, I am out in the field a lot doing inspection for roads and in the process come across a lot of police officers. In talking to most of them I am asked where I go to school and after I reply the University of Michigan they go "Ohh, Big Blue right?!" After hearing a few recruits mentioning "Big Blue" and then hearing most of NJ calling the Maize and Blue incorrectly I am just wondering it's origins.
