Who's the best Wisconsin sports figure to wear each jersey number? Using this exercise from Chicago as inspiration, we thought we'd try to find out. And it's not easy.The Packers will place LeRoy Butler's No. 36 up on the façade at Lambeau Field tonight, and spoiler alert: Butler is going to make the list below.But gauging athletes by their "biggest impact," who should make the cut? Kareem Abdul-Jabbar or Ron Dayne at No. 33? Khris Middleton or Christian Yelich at 22? CC Sabathia or Clay Matthews at 52? Max McGee or Greg Jennings at 85?First, the rules:"Impact" is judged from their time as a Wisconsin athlete and not necessarily what happened later in their careers, so you won't see Admirals titan Phil Wittliff or Brewers manager Craig Counsell on the list, even though they played for their hometown teams and made their greatest impact later.
