The college basketball season is coming to an end but the best part of the season is still yet to be played.  The college basketball postseason is known for it’s crazy upsets and thrilling games so it got coined the nickname “March Madness”.  It starts on March 14th and ends on April 4th, making up one of the best months of sports of the year.

Nebraska will sadly not be one of the 64 teams in the tournament but Creighton will be!  Creighton is one of the top teams in the country and it’s one of the best teams Greg McDermott has ever had.  The college is located in downtown Omaha and there are lots of Husker fans who are also Bluejay fans.  Those fans have been given the name “Jayskers.”

If you’re watching the games for just pleasure, you might as well fill out a couple brackets while you’re at it!  You could end up winning a lot of money, or you can be like almost every American and win nothing.  It’s every sports fan dream to have a perfect bracket but the odds of having a perfect bracket are as low as 1 in 9.2 quintillion.  That is a lot of zeroes!  Warren Buffett offered anybody that works for his company (Berkshire Hathaway) a million dollars a year for the rest of their life if they get predict all of the sweet 16 teams.  That means you have to be perfect through the first 2 rounds of play which is actually much harder than it sounds.  Well if you don’t enjoy watching basketball during this time of the year enjoy the crazy Nebraska weather so that could be considered “March Madness” as well.
