NFL: Oakland Raiders-OTA Kirby Lee-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.

  • Let’s start with some Badgers in the NFL news:

Joe Thomas really is out there living his best life. Good for him!

  • Jonathan Taylor and Reggie Bush were talking shop at The Terrace on Wednesday. That’s a lot of combined rushing yards in one picture.
  • It’s nice to see Quintez Cephus back at practice.
  • Two best players in the conference? Yeah, that makes sense.
  • Now what penis shaped sculpture will you tell your friends to meet you at when the game is over!?!
  • If you get the ACC Network you’ll be able to watch the women’s soccer team on Sunday.
  • Sam Dekker lives in Russia now. He didn’t have a charming video about moving overseas like Nigel Hayes, but few do to be fair.
  • Brianna Decker is helping to grow girl’s hockey in Wisconsin which is awesome for the girl’s who play hockey in the state as well as for the University’s team, which will reap the benefits of having better players closer to Madison.
  • Big match gets a time change. Mark your calendars.
  • The Badgers would, I presume, like to keep both of these kids home for college.
  • I’ve always said this: If you’re going to play Montee Ball in FIFA, don’t use Cristiano Ronaldo. Everyone knows this.
  • Speaking of soccer! The men’s soccer team had a scrimmage with local USL League 1 side Forward Madison.
  • The XFL, which is a thing again, released their logos and team names on Wednesday. One of the teams is called the Wildcats! I can tell how old you are if you know who the dragon on the right is without having to look it up. Long live Strong Bad!
  • Crazy how this keeps happening primarily with one team and one team only! Jim Harbaugh is a putz.
