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.

  • Most of these goals were scored by Minnesota. ::shakes fist at sky::
  • Your co-B1G offensive player of the week, ladies and gentlemen.
  • It is nice when people I don’t know but think are friends turn out to be friends.
  • This is the best basketball related emoji out there. By law, though, you have to tag Ben Simmons when you use it.
  • The Badgers are headed west for the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

From the UW press release: “The Wisconsin women’s soccer team will head to Los Angeles for the second and third rounds of the 2019 NCAA Women’s Soccer Championship. UW, the No. 3 seed, will take on Duke on Friday in a 7 p.m. CT (5 p.m. PT) game at Wallis Annenberg Stadium. The winner of UW/Duke will take on the winner of No. 2 UCLA/Clemson on Sunday in a 6 p.m. CT (4 p.m. PT) contest.”

It appears both games will be streamed on

  • Play it on repeat on my gravestone.
  • The videos that the athletic department have been producing this year have been nothing short of outstanding.
  • Just good advice regardless of the time of year tbqh.

B1G basketball scoreboard from last night (losses in bold because we are here to laugh at misfortune):

No. 3 Michigan State 94 - Charleston Southern 46
No. 10 Ohio State was beating Stetson 42-14 at halftime and there’s no way I check that score again, so assume the Buckeyes won big.
Illinois 66 - Hawaii 53
