I don’t know why it’s always such a big deal when a player happens to be dating someone from a “rival” school. It’s called having a life, guys. Sam Dekker’s girlfriend Bailey Scheich is just such a rival school girl. The fact that Bailey goes to Michigan was probably a topic of conversation for like 2 seconds until Sam moved on to the “so, you’re really hot” vibe. I’m not even sure Michigan is classified as a rival with Wisconsin, actually, and I think other sites got it wrong and thought she went to MSU, which she certainly does not.
Bailey’s Twitter feed is not half bad. She featured a Vine of Sam getting hyped up and spiking the ball, which then his his teammate Nigel right in the head. Little things like that tell you she’s A) got a good sense of humor B) obviously a fan of her boyfriend’s team and C) capable of putting together a half-decent Vine or at least retweeting one. She’s also got a knack for putting up some pretty funny jokes about relationships. Anyway, Sam Dekker’s girlfriend Bailey Scheich is natural blonde attending the great school of Michigan, and her favorite hobbies are studying, partying, and going to basketball games. That’s about it. She’s definitely smart, energetic, and outgoing, and she’s got a younger sister still in high school and a younger brother who goes to CMU. She’s twenty years old, people– at that age the only thing going on for anybody that’s not in sports is parties, studying, and hanging out. But I can tell you that, based on her Instagram photos, she is getting high marks in hanging out and partying and fair marks in studying (yes, she does include pictures of herself studying for tests). And yes, Bailey likes to wear Wisconsin jerseys with the number 15 on them.
