Final thoughts on NCAA Tournament bracket and more…

Chris Basnett (Lincoln Journal Star) / Shut Up Sipple

-Thoughts on everything that’s going on with Nebrasketball….what’s the deal with Miles going forward? Hoiberg news?

-Will this team show up against Butler on Wednesday or are they ready for the season to be over?

How would the fanbase react if Nebrasketball makes a run in the NIT but Tim Miles is still replaced?

-There is belief that there is a done deal for the next coach and that nothing will change that regarding Nebraska’s postseason results this year…

-Would there be a revolt from fans who turn around and support Miles again if Nebraska makes a run in the NIT? Jake would still say that no matter what…it’s still the 2nd-tier tournament! No one even remembers or cares that Penn State won last year! And how’d they follow up that title? With a below-.500 season! WHAT AN ACCOMPLISHMENT!!!

How motivated will Nebrasketball players be to play in the NIT?

-Will having a chance to play Creighton again if Nebraska wins 2 games pump the players up? Do they care about the season still, knowing that before the year it was NCAA Tournament or bust? It’s hard to know how teams will react in the 2nd-tier tournament

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY: “East Bound and Down” – Jerry Reed

Breaking down the NCAA Tournament bracket…where are the upsets and who wins it all?

-8 B1G teams leads the field of any other conference….but none of them get a 1-seed. Michigan and Michigan State both are 2 seeds, while 3 ACC teams (Duke, North Carolina, and Virginia) are 1-seeds, along with Gonzaga

-Wisconsin and Iowa seem like potential early outs for B1G teams, as the 5-seed Badgers face 12-seed Oregon, and 10-seed Iowa faces WAY TOO LOW 7-seeded Cincinnati in the first round.

-Also, Jake’s favorite game is undoubtedly the 5-12 game of Marquette/Murray State….Markus Howard vs. Ja Morant!!! MUST WATCH TV
