B5Q Blogopean Union: no Rose Bowl talk in this post

Plus: unless you’re talking about Rose Lavelle, who we do mention; Brad Davison is playing mistake free hoops; and volleyball recruits are winning awards.

NCAA Basketball: Indiana 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.

  • The Rose Bowl sucked, for the fourth time in the past ten years, and we won’t talk about it anymore in this post! Hooray!
  • Wisconsin men’s basketball had a pretty good decade, all things considered.
  • Hopefully women’s basketball has a good next decade. They keep recruiting players like Halle Douglass they should definitely improve.
  • Will #MertzMania overtake Madison this offseason?
  • Future Badger Devyn Robinson had an outstanding performance at the Under Armour All-America game.
  • Brad Davison is quietly having a nice little run of play for the Badgers.
  • Joe Thomas is one of the best left tackles of all-time.
  • At least Wisconsin beat Oregon in something.
  • A win is a win, I suppose. Even when it comes in an exhibition game that the Badgers were losing.
  • Seth Gross had a dominant week on the mat and is being rewarded for it.
  • ::softly crying:: Yeah, I guess this is true.
