Coming from the UP (though I only lived there for four years, the rest of my life was spent in the Lower Peninsula), I can say that most people in the eastern end generally have a D1 team that they watch each weekend. Tech and NMU don't have very entertaining football programs or the same TV coverage, so that kind of leads to people following MSU or UM.

I will say that in the town I came from, 65% of the people were Sparty fans. There were quite a few very dedicated Michigan fans, too, though.

Out in the western end, there are a lot of Badgers. And some Gophers.

I do agree that Packers > all there (ugh).

The third one is really cool, looks like it took some time to finish that. Your geography one isn't quite true =) Lots of places in your green part of Michigan have Michigan fans
