March 30th: Final Four is tomorrow in San Antonio…who will we see advance to Monday’s National Championship?

-Will the Cinderella of Loyola-Chicago pull the major upset and beat Michigan to advance? Will Kansas ‘upset’ Villanova, even though both are 1-seeds? Should be a great day of basketball

-Also, congrats to Penn State—winners of their 2nd consecutive NIT tournament (won in 2009, their last time in it)

March 30th: Could the tight end spot be the biggest potential area of the offense? / Shut Up Sipple

-Sean Beckton seems excited about Jack Stoll, as well as Austin Allen and Kurt Rafdal. Matt Snyder’s still around, too. It’s a position that had a lot of stats at UCF, and is not typically lined ‘in’ on the line, as we’ve seen in the past at Nebraska….can that spot surprise this year?

March 30th: Greg Austin continues to praise the offensive line and it’s depth…is it possible that a new voice/message is all it will take for that group and others to take off?

-Ahhhhh, the old talent discussion again. The offensive line looked terrible for a good portion of the last few years, and looked soft, frankly. But we always looked at the star rankings for that group and said they should be better. Will Austin’s message be what it takes to start and realize their potential?

-How much did the way Mike Cavanaugh’s approach to the offensive line hurt Nebraska when all was said and done? Cavanaugh believed in 5 starters with very minimal—if any—subbing out for guys to get rest. Seems like it didn’t really ever let the back-ups get a chance to prove themselves or be ready when their name was called if a guy went down with injury in a game. Maybe competition in practice is what they needed all along (also—Brendan Jaimes officially to LT)

March 30th: Pissed Off Poppe: The Royals implode in the home-opener, giving up 6 home runs, using 9 pitchers, and losing 14-7

-It was a good START for KC, as they led 4-0 in the first inning, until Danny Duffy imploded in the 4th and the rest was history. Panicking after one game or reasons for concern?

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY:

March 30th: Do you prefer a bellcow running back (Greg Bell), or a stable of backs to split carries?

-Nebraska’s last bellcow was Ameer Adbullah, and he was pretty damn good. Do you want a guy like Greg Bell to dominate the carries all season, or is it better to split carries up?

-Will Tre Bryant get any say in the matter?
