B5Q Blogopean Union: big sports weekend coming up

::looks around nervously:: Yup, BIG sports weekend coming up.

UW Athletics Department

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.

  • Badgers are on the road to Indy!
  • @ChrystMemes is a good account.
  • Three Walter Camp Award finalists on the field in Indy this Saturday. I hope Jonathan Taylor is able to play against Ohio State like he does against everyone else.
  • Whatever. The ACC/B1G Challenge is stupid anyways.
  • Is there a sport that Wisconsin doesn’t take the best athletes from Minnesota and make them into a Badger?
  • Winning the B1G in volleyball is impressive every year, but this year seems extra impressive.
  • What...were the other teams practicing then?
  • Way to throw that hammer down, Khalil!
  • The Badgers had three All-Americans as chosen by the coaches. I’m pretty sure Jordyn Bloomer could stop me from watching Real Housewives of Dallas. That’s how good she is at stopping people from doing things.
  • A big chance to solidify that No. 1 ranking before heading into winter break.
  • ::pokes team with a stick:: Sweep something.
  • Scott Frost definitely has everything under control in Lincoln.

B1G basketball scoreboard from last night (losses in bold because we are here to laugh at misfortune):

The B1G was too busy celebrating their ACC/B1G title to be bother to play any games on Thursday night.
