Good morning! This is going to be a daily(ish) post that discusses the goings on of the rest of the Big Ten Conference, and the country as needed. Much like the European Union, the Big Ten is a loosely confederated group of entities that sometimes have the same goals (like free movement of people between countries or not winning national titles in football or basketball) and sometimes accept new members that they later regret (Estonia or Rutgers).

We hope that you will use this post to comment on things happening around the conference and also as a sort of daily open thread to discuss breaking news or argue about Spotted Cow.

  • The women’s hockey team is off to a 2-0-0 start and is also celebrating its 20th anniversary!

Winning 77.8% of your games seems pretty good to me.

  • There is a lot of talk about the new law in California that will allow college athletes to make money off of their likeness. I won’t get into any of that here, but Barry Alvarez had some thoughts.
  • I’ve never seen Stranger Things. Is this cool or nah?
  • The women’s hoops team has also started practicing and hopefully they can use some of their momentum from the recruiting trail and use it on the court.
  • Video highlights from the volleyball team’s undefeated weekend at the Field House.
