B5Q Blogopean Union: did the Big Ten have problematic tweets?

Because everything is getting cancelled! (All credit for this terrible joke must go to @RobertONeill31 on Twitter)

NCAA Basketball: North Carolina at Iowa Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

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).

  • The East-West Shrine Bowl, a postseason college football all-star game, has been announcing the rosters for their contest and a pair of Badgers made the list. This will be a good spot for QB Jack Coan and DE Isaiahh Loudermilk to showcase their skills for NFL teams or potential transfer destinations since everyone gets a free year of eligibility this year.
  • Speaking of postseason awards, junior TE Jake Ferguson was named a semifinalist for the Mackey Award, given annually to the best tight end in the nation. In four games this year, Ferguson has 23 catches for 235 yards and four scores.
  • You love to see the Badgers crashing the boards, which will help them win a couple extra games this year.
  • Wisconsin volleyball is one of the best programs in the country and they recruit like one. Incoming freshman Lauren Jardine won multiple awards including Utah’s Ms. Volleyball award for 2020.
