Plus: THE BADGERS ARE GOING TO THE VOLLEYBALL FINALS AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Oakland Raiders Darren Yamashita-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.

  • After a few days off due to Early Signing Day and Drew taking early flights to and from Philadelphia, WE’RE BACK BABY!
  • And not a moment too soon if you ask me because the volleyball team IS GOING TO PLAY FOR A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP ON SATURDAY!

The Badgers will be playing Stanford, who dispatched of the Gophers in three sets in the other semifinal, in what will surely be a titanic clash of two teams peaking at the right time.

  • Jonathan Taylor DID put on a show this season. I’m so excited to watch him one more time in the Rose Bowl.
  • Look at our beautiful, baby boy gracing the cover of magazines!
  • All of the Badgers made the US Junior team heading to the Czech Republic which is really great for the program.
  • Personally I’m shocked that the Badgers had 352 pass attempts on the season for Tyler Biadasz to pass block on.
  • The Badgers big road match-up against Tennessee next Saturday was given a tip time.
  • #RBU
  • How many Pro Bowl positions can Derek Watt play in one game? Let’s find out!
  • Speaking of Badgers Pro Bowl fullbacks!
  • My mind is exploding with tie-breaker scenarios here for the B1G Tournament.
  • Taylor is going to need to have a monster game against Oregon in the Rose Bowl to rightfully reclaim what is Wisconsin’s.
  • Hopefully in 20 years we are talking about Dana Rettke and Sydney Hilley and how they won the program’s first national title.
  • More #WattNews.
  • The Badgers finally got to show off their skills at home and put on a show for the Field House faithful.
  • These Rivalry Series games between the US and Canada are just crammed full of Badgers.

Shut the hell up forever, Buckeye fans.
