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 Baseball

Saturday, March 23 - 12:05 p.m. (CT)

Fans across Nebraska and around the world can listen Greg Sharpe and Lane Grindle call all of the action on the Husker Sports Network - including KLIN 1400 AM and 94.5 FM in Lincoln - and on the Internet at or the Official Husker Smartphone App.

TV Coverage this Weekend
There is no television coverage of the baseball games this weekend.

Women's Basketball

The Husker women's basketball team (23-8, 12-4 Big Ten) will take on Chattanooga (29-3, 19-1 SoCon) in the first round of the 2013 Women's Basketball Tourney at 5:30 PM. The game is televised on ESPN2.

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.
