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.

  • Kristen Campbell is good at her job. If you get a puck past her you should have it framed and mounted tbqh.
  • A nice interview with men’s hockey head coach Tony Granato on BTN.
  • An injury to report at hockey practice.
  • The future of the men’s hockey team continues to look bright.
  • The two Watt boys who weren’t playing for the Steelers on MNF sure did enjoy watching their brother GET AFTER Andy Dalton.
  • A big write up from Mike Lucas on UWBadgers.com about the upcoming men’s basketball season.
  • Another award winning weekend for the women’s soccer team. The Badgers also moved up to No. 13 in the country in the new rankings.

Also, let’s talk about Sean Lewis’ parents getting it on.
