B5Q Blogopean Union: how old is Brevin Pritzl?

Plus: Mekenzie Steffen is good at hockey; it was a wild night in B1G men’s hoops; and some NFL Draft talk.

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.

  • This is on Wednesday night (that’s tonight for those of you who don’t know what day it is) and is appointment viewing.
  • I’m pretty sure Brevin Pritzl lived in Ogg with me in 2003.
  • Tyler Biadasz has yet to declare for the NFL Draft, but it is widely assumed that he will.
  • Mekenzie Steffen had three assists for the Badgers in their Battle for the Burgh tournament victory. She was also named to the all-tournament team.
  • The men’s hockey team is back on the ice this weekend after a long winter break. Here are their top plays from the first half of the season.
