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.

  • It takes one to know one, as they say.
  • It’s pretty fun have such a dominant team on campus.
  • We might just post this clip every day for the rest of the basketball season.
  • The Summer Olympics are coming up in 2020 and it would be really cool to have more Badgers to cheer on.
  • What a special moment this must have been for Sarah Dodd who had been recovering from an ACL injury that had kept her out of action until Sunday against Michigan State.
  • Marquette got their asses swept this weekend.
  • Speaking of sweeps, the Badgers were this close to sweeping Notre Dame over the weekend, but the Irish went right down the ice and scored, like, 20 seconds after this to get the series split. C’est la vie.
  • Presented only with Steve’s accurate comment.
  • That’s SCENIC Terra Haute, Indiana to you.
  • We will have much more on this, but Dani Rhodes and the soccer team are moving on to the second round of the NCAA Tournament after beating Milwaukee.
  • It was a really rough weekend for schools from Milwaukee traveling to Madison to play sports.
