Saturday Sports Action - Something For Everyone Open Thread!

David McGee
I am dead last in our bracket challenge, and along with the fact that the online bracket system did not save some of my picks (WHY DID IT SAY COMPLETE?), I am royally screwed unless Florida and Gonzaga manage to survive and get to the title game (HAHAHAHAHA).

There is a whole lotta sports happening today. Check in at CN and let everyone know how you're doing!

Nebraska is a #6 seed, while Chattanooga is #11. THIS GAME HAS THE MAKINGS OF AN UPSET?


The Nebraska softball team came from behind to beat Northwestern 5-4 in game one yesterday, and then smashed them 14-1 in five innings in game two. Game three is dependent upon the weather, there is no start time set yet.
