B5Q Blogopean Union: Kobe King wants to posterize his future teammate already

Plus: a lot of men’s hockey news; football recruiting news; and volleyball recruiting news

NCAA Basketball: Maryland at Wisconsin Mary Langenfeld-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.

  • ::cues up Fleetwood Mac:: YOU CAN GO YOUR OWN WAY!
  • They might not be having the best season as a team on the ice, but many of the current Badgers are highly regarded by the NHL.
  • Hey, this is cool! Go UW Dance Team!
  • La Crosse on La Crosse violence!
  • So, uh, apparently the Badgers have a new punter coming on board? His Twitter bio says he’s in the class of 2022, but as far as I can tell that’s when he’s planning on graduating. It sounds like he’ll be a walk-on and have two years of eligibility remaining.

He punted for the University of Dubuque for the past two seasons and our very own Owen Riese has this scouting report on him, sent in four separate Slack messages: “he’s very good; coached against him Week 1; 62 yard punt against us (Whitewater); best punter we saw.”

He averaged 36.7 yards per punt on 49 attempts last year while also handling place kicking duties. He had four punts blocked last year and also had -15 rushing yards. He is originally from Columbus, Wis.

  • I too have been described as having a “thick lower half” and a “stout base.”
  • Tristan Moran had a big week on the mat last week.
  • Hopefully the Badgers can build on the recruiting trail thanks to their run to the Finals this year.
  • I hope Cole Caufield is taking French at Wisconsin.
  • Pretty sick mitts on this kid.
  • This is a great photo from Tuesday night.
  • A bunch of new football Badgers taking in the big basketball win over Maryland.
  • I know this was a point of consternation amongst many so let’s hear from the man himself.
  • Hmmmmm. Good point.
  • Why don’t they build the whole team out of Badgers?
