This is fantastic news! Omaha seems to definitely be on the NCAA's "go to" rotation for March Madness. The city has a great opportunity to knock it out of the park (again) when we host a regional next March :thumb: ...

Glad to see! As Bruce Rasmussen noted, the NCAA usually doesn't award a city a second regional until they have hosted one, which is probably why Omaha is only listed for the 1st/2nd round instead of another regional.

With Omaha's track record of hosting these big sporting events, I wouldn't be surprised if we get a regional in the next round.

I know getting the Sweet 16, Elite 8 might be more prestigious, but getting the 1st and 2nd round games might be worth considerable more money to Omaha and CenturyLink Center. You get twice as many teams, and double the games.

Maybe the cruel sports gods will finally show some mercy on Nebraska and eject head coach Miles soon........and then replace him with someone who could get Nebraska back to its first Tourney appearance in years right here in Omaha in 2020. Its fun to dream but there seems to be no hope of that happening.
