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 Nebraska).

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).

  • In my quest to not get worked up about Wisconsin football last Saturday, I made it until this play. Pretty good, imo!
  • The men’s soccer team picked up yet another win on Tuesday night against a dreadful Western Illinois side. This was a beautiful ball for the third goal (out of four scored) of the match. The Badgers have now won five in a row, all via shutout, and are unbeaten in their last eight matches.
  • Why would you ever watch highlights in regular-motion?
  • Sam Dekker has improved his outside shot and it’s looking real nice.
  • DJ Shawna rules. Here is her story.
  • Jonathan Taylor had a monster game for the Colts on Monday Night Football, which you’ll be able to read more about in Kevin’s Badgers in the NFL post coming later this week.
  • The men’s hockey team is back on the ice for a series with Army on Thursday and Friday. Hopefully with the short week they’ll forget quickly about getting their doors blown off in their season opening series.
  • Lol, what a stupid, meaningless quote from Mark Johnson...but he’s right, Daryl Watts is playing well.
