B5Q Blogopean Union: Cole Caufield is an American hero

Plus: Seth Gross is Midlands champ; Michael Finley could probably still dunk on your ass; and Sam Dekker is enjoying Paris.

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.

The Americans, already having lost to Canada, needed to beat the hosts (the Czech Republic) to solidify their standing in the Group of Death in the World Junior Championship. Thanks to the Stevens Point native, they did.


Here is the full play where you’ll note that Caufield and Turcotte were joined on the ice by K’Andre Miller who ALSO PLAYS FOR THE BADGERS! WE ARE AMERICA’S TEAM!

  • Hopefully the didn’t spill any Ace on their sick J’s. (If my wife is reading this, that’s a reference to a rap lyric.)
  • The volleyball team lending the football team some of their championship energy. That’s nice of them.
  • Michael Finley looking like he could still lace em up.
  • Uh-oh, did the Badges wrestling social media person have a stroke?

Ohhhh, no stroke, just Seth Gross just winning his weight class at the Midland Championships! By beating No. 1!!!! This was the first time a Badger had won at Midlands since 2010.
