B5Q Blogopean Union: the men’s hockey team wants you to Netflix and chill

Plus: Nate Reuvers had a good first game; Matt Henningsen is having a good season; so is the women’s soccer team

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.

  • We mentioned a couple of national awards that the Badgers women’s hockey team won on Wednesday, but there was one additional (conference) award that we missed. If Below Deck has taught me anything, you shouldn’t disrespect the captain.
  • The women’s soccer team may have lost in the first round of the conference tournament, but they are still highly ranked and should receive a good seed in the NCAA Tournament.
  • Don’t mind me, I’m just sending the men’s hockey team a “you up?” text.
  • Nate Reuvers had a good game against Saint Mary’s. BTW, the Badgers are going to have a PROBLEM when they play Marquette and Markus Howard.
  • The volleyball team has three Under Armour High School All-Americans coming to campus next year.
  • Devyn Robinson, Ankeny Centennial High School, Ankeny, Iowa, MB, made the first team
  • Jade Demps, Broughton High School, Raleigh, N.C., OH, made the second team
  • Madison (MJ) Hammill, Center Grove High School, Greenwood, Ind., S, made the second team

On the first team, Minnesota lands the most honorees with three commitments out of the 24. The Big Ten Conference leads all conferences with 20 honorees attending one of their 14 institutions.

  • I wonder if Jake gets a vote for this award? He literally wrote the book on walk-ons.
  • Tyler joined BHGP for their podcast to preview the Wisconsin/Iowa game.
