March Madness is upon us and Kate and Nick are talking the Saint Mary’s snub, the Stanford women’s chances of taking it all, as well as a tease of their soon-to-be-completed brackets. Then it’s a quick NASCAR update, some Sharks and Warriors gossip, the latest NFL rule changes, and the countdown continues … MLB opening day is just two weeks away!

And for those of you doing a bracket this year, we’d love to get you onto our Monday show! All you’ve gotta do is call the TWSS voicemail box at 415-413-7316 and leave your name, the two teams you’ve got in the final and who you think is gonna win. Easy, right? So call today!

Kate and Nick are talking NFL labor negotiations, JaMarcus Russell’s latest misstep, Oregon’s possibly paid recruiter, the countdown to March Madness, Sharks hockey, Warriors basketball, how the Giants and A’s are lookin’ down in Arizona, and much more on today’s That’s What She Said! Click here to listen.

And represent they did, especially former Stanford wideout Ryan Whalen, who finished in the top 15 in every workout category except the 40 yard dash. Whalen’s numbers, in no particular order:

40 yard dash – 4.59 seconds
Vertical jump – 38.5″ (7th)
Broad jump – 10’3″ (tied for 14th)
3-Cone Drill – 6.67 seconds (10th)
20 yard shuttle – 4.09 seconds (6th)
60 yard shuttle – 11.21 seconds (9th)
Bench Press – 18 (tied for 11th, finishing one spot better than Alabama’s combine phenom, Julio Jones)

* (Ranking is in comparison to other WRs at the combine)

Not bad numbers for a guy that was a recruited walk-on at Stanford back in 2007.

Former Cardinal defensive back Richard Sherman wasn’t as impressive as Whalen, but he definitely held his own. Sherman’s highlights, also in no particular order:

Vertical jump – 38″ (5th)
Broad jump – 10’5″ (9th)
3-Cone Drill – 6.82 seconds (tied for 14th)

* (Ranking is in comparison to other DBs at the combine)

If you’re a combine newbie, click here for info and video describing the workouts. My apologies for the guy that starts yakking as soon as the page opens. Turn him down if you must, but he actually says some helpful things after you get over the initial shock of his voice.

Superbowl XLV is set! That’s why Kate and Nick are talking Packers/Steelers, but not before giving the Bears and the Jets some season-ending love. Have fun golfing, guys! Speaking of golf, the duo also touches on the latest Tiger Woods news, catches up with the Sharks and Warriors, and recaps an exciting NCAA hoops weekend. So what are you waiting for? That and much more is ahead on today’s edition of That’s What She Said!

Al Davis does it again! No, not scare women and children (although we’re sure that happened on Wednesday too). We’re talking about his verbal shlacking of former head coach Tom Cable in the process of naming his next victim, we mean, head coach, Hue Jackson. Good luck next year, Huey! Needless to say, Kate and Nick are talking Raiders football, along with the latest moves by Jim Harbaugh’s Niners. Then it’s a preview of the NFL’s Final Four, an NCAA basketball wrap, a Warriors and Sharks update, and a quick off-season check-in with the 2010 World Series champion San Francisco Giants!

Jim Harbaugh to the Niners? Yeah, that’s what we said too. That’s why Kate and Nick are talking the Harbaugh surprise, recapping the first weekend of the NFL Playoffs, discussing Nnamdi Asomugha’s free agency, and catching up with the Sharks and the Warriors. Then it’s an NCAA basketball update and a preview of tonight’s BCS National Championship game. So, what are you waiting for?

Kate Scott and Nick Winkler close out 2010 with a bang! The duo talks Raiders, Niners, CIF and NCAA bowl games, Cal Women’s Volleyball, Tara VanDerveer’s 800th, UCONN’s 88th, the Sharks’ Logan Couture, the Warriors and Kings combining teams, Minnesota’s cement-like frozen tundra and more! That’s all ahead on the final That’s What She Said podcast of 2010!

It looks like God may be a Raiders fan after all. With Oakland needing a win on Sunday to have any chance at making the playoffs, word on the street is that Denver Broncos starter Kyle Orton is out with bruised ribs and rookie Tim Tebow is in, set to start his first NFL game.

Yes, Tebow was an amazing NCAA quarterback and no one questions his ability to lead, but will the Black Hole really allow a rookie to embarrass the Raidas at the Coliseum? Me thinks not. What about you?

Well how ’bout the NFC West, huh? Talk about a tough division! (cue laughs) Awfulness aside, despite Thursday nights shlacking at the hands of the Chargers, the Niners are somehow, some way STILL alive, and Kate and Nick are all over it. The duo also talks baseball – the A’s offseason moves and the Giants disgruntled infielder – Sharks hockey and Warriors basketball. Then it’s spandex time: the Cal Women’s Volleyball team has a shot at an NCAA Championship for the first time in program history, while the De La Salle Spartans are lookin’ for more glory for Concord, California. Wrapping up the show: a Raiders preview and an update on the America’s Cup yatching drama. That’s right, we said yatching drama. That’s all ahead on today’s That’s What She Said!

It’s that time again and Kate and Nick are psyched for a weekend of great football! In addition to previewing Sunday’s Niner and Raider games, the duo talks Cam Newton, Peyton Manning, the ongoing NFL negotiations, baseball’s winter meetings, the Sharks big mid-week win, the Warriors slim chances of beating Lebron, and – wait for it! – their WWF childhood memories. (Insert nostalgic sigh here) So, what are you waiting for? Stop reading this crap! That’s What She Said is live!
