Plus: Jonathan Taylor and Tyler Biadasz like the aquarium; Dylan Holloway playing well for Team Canada; and Sydney Hilley is ready for this weekend.

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 is nice to see Dylan Holloway performing so well for his country. Now, let me say it again, bring that momentum back to Madison!
  • I’m always happy when former Badgers are no longer on teams I hate. What I’m trying to say is, thanks for leaving the Rangers, Derek Stepan.
  • It’s always funny to see offensive linemen’s families. I always assume both parents are massive people but sometimes...they’re regular sized!
  • The help, quite literally, can’t come soon enough.
  • I don’t think Wisconsin should ever play on the road again this season. Or in New Jersey ever again.
  • Are you ready for the big time volleyball games at the Field House this weekend? Get ready by listening to genius Sydney Hilley talk about being awesome at volleyball!
  • You can also go see her, and the rest of the team, be awesome at volleyball during their open practice later on Thursday.
  • Hopefully you’ll have volleyball to be watching on Saturday, but here is a good flip back.
  • Shoutout Dave Brandon!
