B5Q Blogopean Union: Cole Caufield could use the pickup line “Google me” and it would work

Plus: shooting your shot with the volleyball team; Chris Orr may have just sacked you; there are going to be more twins in the B1G!

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.

  • Somehow seeing the game broken down by nerdy stats nerds makes it even worse!

Just kidding Bill C.! We still love you!

  • At least Jonathan Taylor is still awesome.
  • I’d suggest getting out to the Kohl Center for this weekend’s games against No. 13 Clarkson. Unlike Texas football, Wisconsin hockey is back!
  • Our boy, and potential future quarterback, Cole Caufield is now certifiably an international phenomenon.

Anybody know French?

  • If you were looking for a hockey program to join, why wouldn’t you give a long, hard look to Wisconsin?
  • Way to shoot your shot, band guy.
  • Chris Orr keeps winning weekly awards. That’ll happen when you keep recording multiple sacks in a game.
  • Rose Lavelle is in Madison!?!? I’d tell her to stop by the Bucky’s 5th Quarter office but, well, I live in Minnesota and I don’t know where Bob lives.
  • I hope they start decorating the helmet they, presumably, give out to the player of the game. Kinda boring IMO.
  • The coaches and the media only pick a top-five in the preseason, and the Badgers were not a part of either. Maryland’s Kaila Charles was picked as preseason player of the year by both the coaches and the media.
  • The Badgers aren’t the only team that can land a pair of twins in basketball recruiting. Iowa got a double commitment over the weekend from twin brothers who are currently taking a post-grad year at a school in Florida.
  • B1G basketball predictions from Corn Nation. They are all over the place after predicting Michigan State to win the conference.
  • Troubled Nebraska running back, Maurice Washington, is finally not playing football for the Huskers. Scott Frost gave some vague answers about why and hasn’t ruled out the possibility of Washington rejoining the team.
