B5Q Blogopean Union: we love volleyball and we don’t care who knows

Plus: Darryl Watts had a great weekend; Sam Dekker is settling in nicely in Turkey; and Leo Chenal is an All-American again.

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).

  • You can never consume too much content about the Badgers volleyball team going back to the Final Four.
  • Here’s the hometown radio call of the match winning point.
  • Seems like Sam Dekker really likes playing in Turkey as he had a smashing debut in his first game of the season for Bahcesehir.
  • If you are able to donate, Badgers center Chris Vogt has started a GoFundMe to help the people of his native Kentucky who are recovering from a devastating tornado.
  • Yeah, there should probably be more punishment for drunk driving.
  • Leo Chenal will never stop being named to All-America teams! Don’t even ask him to stop!!
  • We’ll have more on the hockey teams from over the weekend, but Daryl Watts’ performance deserves to be shouted out more than once.
