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).

  • Wisconsin wrestling is back and their schedule is out. The Big Ten will be stacked as usual, so this will definitely be a challenging slate for our boys. The home opening dual is on Nov. 1 against Buffalo.
  • If you missed it last night, the men’s basketball team got their first commitment for the 2022 recruiting class. 3-star SG Connor Essegian out of Indiana is one of the best shooters in the midwest and should do well in UW’s offense.
  • Former Badgers point guard D’Mitrik Trice will be continuing his basketball career in France. Trice signed with recently promoted side FOS Provence Basket, which is located on the Mediterranean in the south of France which, well, isn’t a terrible place to work post-college.
  • Edmonton Oilers first round pick and former Badger Dylan Holloway will miss a minimum of three months after undergoing successful wrist surgery. We wish Holloway a speedy recovery.
  • BTN’s Emily Ehman picked Syndey Hilley as her most impactful performer from the last week of Big Ten volleyball and who are we to argue with her correct assessment?
