B5Q Blogopean Union: would you watch Scary Alvarez’s News Network?

Plus: women’s hockey remains No. 1; men’s hockey players are shining at the World Juniors already; and a fun interview with former volleyball star Tiffany Clark.

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).

  • Big news out of Madison!
  • ICYMI yesterday, the Badgers and Cardinals will be playing this weekend to decide the winner of the B1G/ACC Challenge.
  • A cool interview with Tiffany Clark, the former Wisconsin libero.
  • The women’s hockey team remains No. 1. Can’t wait until they’re able to play the Gophers this year.
  • Cole Caufield has been impressive at Team USA camp ahead of the World Juniors.
  • Sadly, the annual Indiana/Purdue football game is not going to happen this year. The rivals mutually agreed to call the game off.
