Now that it’s game week, we’ll be having more of a regular schedule at B5Q. Shocking, I know!

Good morning! This is going to be a daily 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.

  • In case you missed it on Friday, the Big Ten Conference announced their preseason honors list for football. There are five dudes from each division on the list and Wisconsin’s very own Jack Sanborn made the cut.
  • The USWNT is starting the process of selecting their roster for the 2021 Women’s World Championship in April and four current Badgers, four former Badgers and one future Badger were invited to the evaluation camp in Minnesota.

Todd Milewski of the State Journal notes that Badgers freshman forward Makenna Webster and former Badgers forward Annie Pankowski are being considered for the team but won’t participate in this evaluation camp.

  • Tyler Wahl is ready for his second year in Madison and he’s still growing!
  • Things are not going great in Iowa City.

“However, the 21-page demands letter outlines a different tone aimed at proving that Kirk Ferentz “witnessed, sanctioned and possessed intimate knowledge of widespread racial discrimination within the program.” It sounds like this is going to court since Iowa is denying everything.
