You know the big story. It’s arguably the greatest collegiate sporting event of the year, it will define careers and is contested before a live national television audience. But enough about the Husker football spring game.
Due to the new super hurry-up offense, the Husker Red-White game began at 2 p.m. and was over at 2:55.
Saturday’s Husker spring game was on BTN. Which is an improvement over last year’s game, which was on the Weather Channel.
Both the Creighton men and the NU women were eliminated from their respective NCAA tournaments by Duke. This has hurt Duke’s popularity in the state. Instead of a .00002 percent approval rate, it’s now .00001 percent.
We got down to the Final Four. I’m referring to the four remaining NCAA tournament viewers who aren’t sick of that weird AT&T guy asking questions of the kids in a circle.
As he left the court after his team lost to La Salle, Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson flipped off the crowd with both hands. If it were up to me, this would make the “One Shining Moment” montage.
Minnesota hired new coach Richard Pitino, 30, son of Rick. Minnesota administrators issued him a special cellphone and said if they hear the words “What do I do now, Dad?” during games, it’s perfectly fine.
In the Big East, Creighton will have to compete against tough teams night in and night out. The school should have included a provision: “We’ll join the new league, but you have to take Drake, too.”
The Texas Rangers’ Yu Darvish came within one out of a perfect game versus the Houston Astros. Now Darvish is excited to see how he can do against major league hitting.
Oakland A’s prospect Michael Taylor was sidelined after injuring himself trying to throw away chewing gum. Local media speculate he may be injury prone. What was your first clue?
On April 18, the Yankees will hold Flower Seed Packet Night. You combine New Yorker mentality, beer and flower seed night, and I think by August you’re gonna see millions of petunias sprouting in front of the left-field bleachers.
On June 1 at Werner Park, the Omaha Storm Chasers will shoot someone out of a cannon. Pete Rose said it’ll just be nice to be back in baseball.
The Storm Chasers are going to shoot somebody out of a cannon. You think you hate it when you’re at a basketball game and your seat number is called to attempt the half-court shot.
New allegations against the Auburn football program include failed drug test cover-ups, altered grades and paying players. The good news is, Auburn remains in contention for the “Cleanest Program in the SEC” award.
Reportedly, Auburn altered grades. It looks bad. The Auburn A.D. received a letter from the SEC commissioner, and through force of habit changed the “C” in SEC to a “B.”
The Pittsburgh Steelers considered signing free-agent running back Ahmad Bradshaw. The headline read: “Steelers Nearing Offer To Bradshaw.” I thought to myself: “They wouldn’t. Would they?”
And finally: A Brazilian soccer match was halted because there were thousands of bees in the goal posts. I haven’t seen that move since Bill Belichick was trying to distract the opponent’s kicker.
