B5Q Blogopean Union: Melvin Gordon is ready for war

Plus: Joe Thomas’ beans look good; as do the new volleyball uniforms; and Josh Seltzner has a big head.

NFL: Pro Bowl
How many times does Minnesota get the Axe every 15 years?
Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

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 first ever SB Nation FanPulse Top-25 for college football was released on Wednesday. Check it out! The Badgers are ranked No. 17, the best team in the B1G West mind you, and Clemson is ranked No. 1. You can still sign up and then have your vote counted for the next poll. The more the merrier!
  • Commenter wissoxfan83 brought up a good point in a FanPost from the other day: today (Thursday) is Wisconsin Day on Big Ten Network.

Starting at 11:30 a.m. CT with the 1999 Rose Bowl against UCLA until the second showing of the day of Big Ten Elite: 1993 Wisconsin Football at 11 p.m. CT it is all Badgers all the time on BTN. I believe they will also be reporting from practice in Madison tomorrow, so hopefully we see Matt Belz on TV.

  • Well, this seals it. I would die for Melvin Gordon.

I’m ready to drive down to TCF Bank Stadium right now and start tackling random Minnesota students.

  • I hope the Browns win the Super Bowl this year and Joe Thomas gives beans to everyone in Cleveland.
  • Ol’ Buffalo Head looking ass.
  • With all of the injuries sustained by the tight ends so far this fall practice, a few unlikely names have been popping up to offer their help.
  • Everybody is getting new uniforms!
  • Fond du Lac, Wisconsin native and Penn State defensive end Robert Windsor lost a bunch of weight this offseason by forgetting his roots and giving up beer. SMDH Robert.
  • Ohio State is naming THE starting quarterback on Monday. Haven’t trademarked it yet, have you fart-wads?
  • I voted that Michigan would win 0-6 games this year. The staff at Maize N’ Brew thinks otherwise.
  • Not a whole lot of news out of the Big Ten on Wednesday. Let’s look at some weird stuff from twitter dot com!
