Plus: men’s hockey is back on the ice tonight, French bulldogs, Jake’s son and B1G NBA Draft results.

NCAA FOOTBALL: OCT 15 Ohio State at Wisconsin

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).

  • I don’t know how many seats are left on the Nick Herbig Hype Train, but you should probably reserve your spot now.
  • It’s a weird season! We’ve got men’s hockey dropping the puck in Madison tonight (Thursday) against No. 6 Michigan for the Badgers’ home opening series. Both games will be on FSWisconsin and should be barn burners since both teams have showed an ability to score with a high frequency.
  • If you are able to watch the game stay tuned during the first intermission.
  • Hmmm, this IS neat!
  • Our old pal Jake had his boss show up during a Zoom call with the Badgers players the other day.
  • My sister also has a French bulldog named Luna so I feel a certain kinship to coach Tsipis.
