Plus: all four Badgers make the US Junior team; Zack Baun getting some NFL Draft hype; and Josh Gasser is an all-time glue guy

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.

  • Do Moore. Be Moore. For Moore.
  • The basketball season hasn’t gone exactly as planned so far, but at least the Badgers haven’t lost to anyone in the state!
  • Cole Caufield is straight up lighting the lamp with shocking regularity for the US Junior team.
  • All four Badgers (Caufield, K’Andre Miller, Ty Emberson and Alex Turcotte) that attend camp for the US Junior team made the final cut.
  • I’d argue you should just make the team out of entirely Josh Gasser but I might be biased.
  • Once the season is over we’ll have some NFL Draft coverage, but it’s nice to see Zack Baun already getting some love from draftniks.
  • It is nice to see the women’s hoops team have some young pieces that are fitting into place to hopefully turn into a competitive team in the B1G.
  • No spoilers in the comments, but did y’all like Star Wars?
  • We are excited to have Owen back in the mix now that Whitewater football has ended another successful season. He’ll be down in Mobile again watching NFL Draft prospects.

  • Really nailed conference expansion, Delany.
