According to a report in the Washington Post, Creighton is considered too far west to join the Catholic 7 league. Which wouldn't be so frustrating if, the way things are going, in five years Hawaii will probably be in the Big East.
Saturday's weather-delayed Nebraska-Iowa men's basketball game aired on BTN2go.com. It's like the NFL Network, only with more viewers.
Last week, the Duke mascot head was stolen, presumably by someone who dislikes Duke basketball. That narrows down the suspect list to 147 million Americans.

The Omaha Boat Sports and Travel Show features a shark exhibition. What better way to get people interested in taking up boating.
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer claimed that Woody Hayes once let a turtle bite him, shall we say, south of the border to prove his toughness. This sounds like either the greatest halftime speech or the worst recruiting pitch in college football history.

On a southern swing, Creighton's baseball team opened the season scoring 29 runs in three games. The Bluejays said they were just enjoying hitting in a stadium that didn't have the same dimensions as Yellowstone Park.
