B5Q Blogopean Union: is Joe Rudolph on the move?

Plus: women’s hockey performs well over the weekend; Sydney Hilley is a legend; and so is Jonathan Taylor.

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 Carson Wentz ruins Jonathan Taylor’s chance at the MVP by sucking and making it so that the Colts have to throw the ball a bunch next week I’m going to absolutely lose it.
  • The Sydney Hilley Setting To Dana Rettke statue, that UW better be building, outside the Field House is going to be awesome.
  • We’ll obviously have a bunch more NFL Draft coverage for you as it draws closer, but it’ll be fun to track the various Badgers who are playing in postseason showcases to see them improve their draft stock.
  • Myles Burkett is going to fit in well.
  • The Badgers earned a win and a tie against No. 4 Quinnipiac (which just ended as a tie since it was a non-conference game) in their first series of 2022.
  • There have been rumblings about this for a week or so, but we may finally get official word that Joe Rudolph is going to Virginia Tech. We’ll obviously have much more on this once it becomes official.
