B5Q Blogopean Union: we are all still mad at the NCAA

Plus: Tom Izzo is ALSO mad at the NCAA; three more Wisconsin high school football championship games today; Jonathan Taylor is an awards semifinalist

NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Conference Tournament-Michigan State vs Wisconsin Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

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.

  • I’ve never heard of this guy, but he ranks Wisconsin highly and has a PhD from Stanford...so I trust him.
  • Some big time match ups at Camp Randall on Friday, most featuring future Badgers or hopeful future Badgers.
  • Has anyone played the new 2K? Is it good? Keep in mind, I am 34 years old, I don’t play online and I suck at the game.
  • I am interested to see how the men’s soccer team does next year if they stay healthy. I think there are some pieces there for a run.
  • The defending national champs have a game on Friday against St. Cloud, but last year’s seniors are headed to the White House to be honored.
  • A couple more awards pared down their lists. Don’t worry, Jonathan Taylor is still on all of them.
  • Well, I guess Taylor isn’t on this list...but Chris Orr is!
  • Crazy kids and their crazy “I’m going to tell my kids” memes.
  • It’s good to know that Brevin Pritzl is paying attention is practice.
  • I need to get better at Photoshop.
  • So, Micah Potter was denied his third and final appeal on Thursday afternoon. The NCAA is ridiculous.
