Nasty old COVID robbed us of Nebrasketball and women’s basketball this weekend. Of course, one of those may not be much of a tragedy (sorry Kevin and Patrick).

The NFL Divisional Round playoffs are here, so we’re checking rosters (and pulling up Brian’s NFL Huskers articles) to figure out who to cheer for.

Wait? Your team is still in the playoffs? Hush.
