B5Q Blogopean Union: so, now what do we do?

Saturday’s game is canceled so, uh, let’s shout about Nebraska’s fans?

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).

  • We have to say, seeing Jon Dietzen back on the field last week was pretty swell and now he is nominated for the Capital One Orange Bowl Courage Award. You love to see it!
  • There was a virtual Badger Booster Event for the men’s basketball team the other day and Matt Lepay spoke with a few players, including Aleem Ford and Johnny Davis.
  • Hopefully you were able to join in on the fun last night as the Big Ten banded together to dunk on a horrendous tweet from a Nebraska radio network before they finally deleted it.

Nebraska fans, while certainly not entirely represented by the worst members of their fan base, do seem to have a larger portion of “worst members” than other fan bases despite loudly crowing about how polite and welcoming they are.

Huskers fans spent all offseason bitching and moaning about not playing football, going so far as to bring lawyers into the mix, then complained about having to play the schedule...that they were scheduled to play...regardless of pandemics and now they are claiming that Wisconsin, the same Wisconsin who has beaten them eight of nine times since they joined the B1G, is “ducking the Huskers.”

Pick a story and stick to it, lunatics.

Then I saw this on Inside NU and...oh God...what if this is a Good Northwestern Year. Classic 2020 imo.
