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).

  • If there’s one thing I learned in my however many years at college it’s that you should never apologize for party rocking.
  • The men’s hockey team notched their first victory of the season on Thursday night, beating Army 4-1 at the Kohl Center. In a cool gesture, the Black Knights made sure to start all four of their Wisconsin natives so their names would be announced.

Here’s the game winning goal for UW, scored by Jack Gorniak.

  • I don’t know if Zach is paraphrasing Paul Chryst here when he says “done some things” but I wouldn’t be surprised if he wasn’t.
  • The women’s soccer team won 1-0 in overtime against Northwestern on Thursday night. The winning goal was a beauty and on the other side of the pitch, Jordyn Bloomer notched another shutout.
  • If you’re in town for the football game this weekend you should stick around on Sunday to catch the first public glimpse of the men’s and women’s basketball teams ahead of the 2021-22 season.
  • Take a long lunch today and watch some top-10 hockey. You (probably) deserve it.
  • The Wisconsin wrestling team earned the commitment of one of the top wrestlers in the 2022 class earlier this week. James Rowley out of Oregon (the state, not the suburb of Madison) will be heading east to join UW next season. Rowley, already one of the best wrestlers in Oregon history, will head into his senior season at Crescent Valley High searching for the elusive four-peat, what would be his fourth Oregon state title in as many attempts.
