Splashdown in Boilermaker country

The Badgers rolled up to the Boilermaker Aquatic Center a little after 5 p.m. (Central ... I'll talk in terms of the Central time zone on the blog this week) last night, but not before getting to see more of West Lafayette, Ind., than expected.

The same GPS unit that suggested our Badger Bus driver head through downtown Gary, Ind., instead of staying on Interstate 90 (really, GPS?) apparently wanted us to take the scenic route through West Lafayette, as well.

Heading east to West Lafayette

After rolling out of Madison at 1 p.m. Tuesday, the Wisconsin women's swimming and diving team is on its way to West Lafayette, Ind., for the 2010 Big Ten Championships.

As of 3:14 p.m. (Central), our Badger Bus is mired in traffic heading into Chicago. I can see the Sears Tower (or whatever it's called now, anyway) ahead, but it's not getting bigger in the window very quickly.

In the DVD department, Dumb and Dumber is in the books, and we've moved on to Friday Night Lights. Looking through the remaining movie selections assistant coach Carrie Nixon brought along, however, things could get a little dicey for the six men along for the trip.
