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.

  • Sorry that this wasn’t out earlier! Two sick children is not a conducive environment for writing...who knew????
  • The Badgers volleyball team got back on the winning track over the weekend. Bob and Rock will have more on that later today and tomorrow. Big match coming up this week against the other UW.
  • Speaking of wearing certain clothes to Wisconsin sporting events, this weekend’s football game is a stripe out situation. Don’t mess this up for all of us by wearing red in a white section, ok?
  • There are a number of good games on the docket for the men’s basketball home schedule and hopefully the student section is rocking for them.
  • Greg Gard is still out there on the recruiting trail trying to make sure Twitter commenters don’t have him out on his ass without a job.
  • Doesn’t matter what country it is, Nigel Hayes is gonna be a weird dude that I love.
  • The Miami Dolphins may be the worst professional football team in recorded history, but that ain’t going to stop Vince Biegel from sacking Tom Brady!
