We are taking hamstring donations at this time for the USWNT.

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.

  • Here is your daily Jonathan Taylor Is Really Good At Football update.
  • If you weren’t able to watch the USWNT outlast England Tuesday afternoon you missed a really good game. You also missed American hero and Badgers legend Rose Lavelle absolutely disrespect the entire United Kingdom with one move.

Lavelle was eventually subbed out of the game after tweaking her hamstring but not before she put in an outstanding shift. She was all over the field causing havoc and was a key reason the Americans are moving on to Sunday’s final. After the game she said she’d be fine for the final, but we’ll keep everyone posted with her status throughout the week.

Lavelle is the best.

  • I’m assuming no one was awake for this game, but this is a great profile of UW volleyball star Dana Rettke.
