B5Q Blogopean Union: Week 1 of Big Ten football sure was fun

It’s a shame that it’ll probably all be over soon!

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 (which we NO LONGER DO).

  • Just to reiterate...Mertz had a better game than the guy that just about everyone predicted would be the best player in the conference this season.
  • Now, I wouldn’t go so far as to say Kirk Herbstreit is ALWAYS speaking the truth, but he has a point here.
  • If you can’t remember all the way back to Friday night’s game, here are the highlights.
