B5Q Blogopean Union: I want to rent the BTN bus for a road trip

Plus: Alex Erickson returning punts; Melvin Gordon roasting Jonathan Taylor; and a new basketball recruit!

NFL: Preseason-Cincinnati Bengals at Washington Redskins Brad Mills-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 BTN crew continued their roadtrip and were in Madison on Thursday to take in practice with the likes of local luminaries Jake Kocorowski and Matt Belz. They came away impressed with the quarterback play!
  • Jim Delany has Big Grandpa Energy.
  • New blog idea! We take Izayah Green-May out to all the different wing spots in town and he rates them!
  • Maybe Melvin Gordon should just stop playing football and become a professional tweeter. He’s really good at that dumb app.
  • More Badgers in the NFL news!
  • Americans and Canadians, but all Badgers, are scoring regularly in the U-22 series in Lake Placid.
