B5Q Blogopean Union: oof, that was a rough basketball game part II

Plus: Daryl Watts wins awards; Trent Hillger wins an award; and Stephen F. Austin should win all the awards.

NCAA Football: Wisconsin Badgers-Training Camp Mark Hoffman-USA TODAY NETWORK

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.

  • Daryl Watts continues to rack up accolades in her first season as a Badger.

She was also named the NCAA’s second star of the week.

  • I sometimes think J.J. Watt’s schtick is a little much, but you cannot deny all of the good he has done in the Houston community.
  • The Badgers passed their first test (a ranked opponent) with flying colors and heavyweight Trent Hillger earned an award too!
  • Definitely worth a quick read. Sydney Hilley is basically the volleyball Marie Kondo.
  • While we know that Purdue Pete sucks, we would like to thank him for his service in helping to roast Goldy last weekend.
  • Let’s hope that Broyles Award semifinalist Jim Leonhard has something special cooked up for Minnesota.
  • I hope the Badgers never go back to New York.
  • Maybe show this to, well, everyone on the men’s team. The Badgers beat EIU 63-55 btw.
