B5Q Blogopean Union: big weekend for Wisconsin soccer as men and women both win

Plus: a look around the weekend that was in the Big Ten; men’s hockey schedule adjustments; and the kids being “lit.”

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).

  • First road match of the season and the Badgers faithful traveled well. Although, admittedly, Milwaukee isn’t very far away and, uh, a lot of Badgers already live there...whatever, shut up!
  • The kids, they are lit.
  • The women’s soccer team won their second straight match in overtime, beating Providence 3-2 thanks to Claire Odmark slotting home a winner in the 97th minute, her second goal of the match. It marked UW’s fourth-straight overtime match and its fifth this season. UW is now 2-1-2 in OT this year and 5-1-2 overall on the year.
  • The men’s soccer team also notched a victory over the weekend, beating Butler 1-0 on Friday. Tim Bielic scored his first career goal for UW to give the Badgers the much-needed victory.
  • I know we already talked about this over the weekend but I still can’t get over how fast Isaac Guerendo was sprinting on his touchdown run. It is, quite literally, inconceivable to me.
  • The men’s hockey conference schedule now starts a day earlier than originally reported. Huzzah!
