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).

  • What happened in Waukesha earlier this week is horrific and I don’t know what else to say other than hug your loved ones and pray for the families who lost someone. If you are able, former Badger, and Waukesha native, Kevin Zeitler and his wife Sara are asking for help to cover funeral and medical costs.
  • J.J. Watt, a native of nearby Pewaukee, is covering all of the funeral costs for the victims. A pair of kind and big-hearted gestures from former Badgers who haven’t forgotten where they came from.
  • It is very important that you look at this graph to see how good Jonathan Taylor has been recently.
  • This stat is also important.
  • A good running back knows he should keep his offensive line happy by gassing them up whenever he can.
  • “Moseley, the youngest Black woman head coach in the Big Ten, was hired by Wisconsin in the offseason. Moseley spent 14 seasons as an assistant at Denver, Minnesota and UConn before landing a head coaching job at her alma mater, Boston University. At BU, Moseley inherited a program that had gone 31-88 in the four seasons before her arrival. In her third season, the Terriers finished the regular season at the top of the Patriot League’s North Division but fell to Lehigh in the tournament championship and didn’t receive an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament. Moseley enters a deep and challenging Big Ten with the goal to resuscitate the program much like she did BU, as Wisconsin hasn’t had a winning program in a decade.”
  • It’s cool that Wisconsin is on the forefront of player safety like this.
  • As we prepare to watch the Badgers attempt to win the Big Ten title again, here are the highlights from last week.
  • The men’s hockey team is back home and celebrating the legacy of Badger Bob Johnson, a true Wisconsin and hockey legend.
