Nicole Griffith (10/11 News sports reporter) – Full Hour

-The Madness is back after a year off…how great has the start of this tournament been?

-What would Lincoln be like if Nebraska was a tournament-level team that was capable of winning a game or multiple games?

-What team would be more devastating if they make a run—Creighton or Iowa?

-Arizona football coach Jedd Fisch is opening up spring football practice for the media to view at all times…will we ever see something like that again at Nebraska?

-Is Scott Frost on any sort of ‘hot seat’ for the 2021 season? If not, why so?

-The game you’re most looking forward to watching today/tonight is…??

-Let’s all make fun of Texas one more time for losing to tiny Abilene Christian…terrible look

Jake has a STRONG proclamation for if Creighton were to lose today…

-Creighton is trying to make their first Sweet 16 since the field expanded to 64 teams. They had not won a first round game in the last 7 years before they LUCKILY survived 12-seed UC-Santa Barbara on Saturday, aided by a missed layup with 2 seconds left by the Gauchos, to win by one point

-Creighton now faces 13-seed Ohio, who upset 4-seed Virginia. If the Jays can’t get past a 13-seed and a 12-seed en route to their first Sweet 16, then they deserve endless crap to the end of time, and they know that, too

March Madness certainly has delivered so far…what a beautiful, wild, crazy tournament it is

-Your bracket is likely busted. And it’s for the better for the entertainment of the tourney that it is! The B1G went 6-3 in the first round, but had bad losses by 2-seed Ohio State to Oral Roberts, and 4-seed Purdue to North Texas.

-Abilene Christian stunned Texas, Ohio beat Virginia…and there’s more than that! The Round of 32 started yesterday and goes on today…how are Jake and Sip feeling about their shaved head bets for Iowa and Creighton? Also…VCU/Oregon canceled and Oregon moves on…at least it was only one game, though…the tournament has been smooth operating otherwise

-On one hand, the success of the Cyclones and Wildcats makes you believe that if they can have that type of success, then why can’t Nebraska? We believed Scott Frost was an upper-echelon coach coming to Nebraska, but it hasn’t seemed that way so far -Northwestern’s key to success is continuity, and look at what their 5th year senior class delivered for wins and accolades—wow. And for Iowa State? Matt Campbell’s first year was 3-9 at a program that struggled perennially. Since then? 4 bowl appearances and only one season below 8 wins (7 in 2019)…this year was certainly the growth year, though

-Texas AD Chris Del Conte said in recent weeks that Herman was safe, and then they crushed Colorado in the bowl game, finished the year at 7-3….and Herman is fired

-Sarkisian helped Alabama advance to the national championship, but will he win in Austin?
