Will the Huskers get the 13th seed or the 14th? That’s the only question Nebraska fans can ask themselves, but the rest of the bracket is utter, beautiful chaos two weeks out.
It’s almost time for the most wonderful time of the sporting calendar: MARCH MADNESS! Obviously Nebrasketball fans out there realize that there’s statistically something like a 1% or less chance of the Nebraska Cornhuskers making it anywhere beyond the Big Ten Tournament that tips off two weeks from today.
This is because their losing record both overall, let alone in conference play, prevents them from even an outside chance at something as lowly as a CBI bid. The only possible way for Nebraska to keep their season alive is to do the unprecedented accomplishment of advancing from a Wednesday bottom four seed game in the conference tournament to win it all and get the autobid to the NCAA tournament that comes along with it. Mind you, since expanding to 14 teams, no team that started play on Wednesday has made it past even the quarter-final round on Friday.
