B5Q Blogopean Union: Basketball? Never heard of it!

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 was a really rough night for anyone involved with the Wisconsin Badgers men’s basketball program.
  • Tiffany Clark, who was robbed of an all-conference honor, talks about how much she enjoys playing volleyball in Madison.
  • I really hope Chris Orr gets a shot in the NFL. I think he’ll make some team happy they took the risk on a short LB.
  • Poor N.C. State, thinking they got a quality win last night.
  • It is good to see bald coaches at Wisconsin stick together.
  • Don’t worry everyone. We’ve got a plan to stop this guy.
  • A host of Badgers are strutting their stuff internationally.
  • Hey, wanna see a trophy?
