Troy Brown Fantasy Football Camp, Marshall University

The beauty of a Troy Brown-run camp is there's an instructor who's experienced with offense, defense, and shady video analysis. Proceeds from the two-day event (which topped $16,000 last year) will go to the Marshall University Childcare Development Academy. No wonder Brown is an A-list celebrity in Huntington

Lecture of the Week: "Stop Paying For Software," University of Wisconsin, 2 p.m.

Isn't it annoying when Microsoft tracks down your pirated copy of Office and bills you for it? Come find out where to get enough free, open source software to fill your heart with glee.

Karl Rove Speaks at Harvard University, 4 p.m.

The last time Karl Rove spoke at a college campus two University of Iowa students stormed the stage and attempted to make a citizen's arrest for crimes committed by the Bush administration. Don't expect Rove's Harvard appearance to be any less controversial.

"Sex(ed) Diaries," USC, 7:30 p.m.

Finally, a film screening for those constantly wondering what sex-ed films were like in the 50's? (Answer: Hilarious) After the screening (which include sex-ed films from the last six decades), a panel will discuss the films' social implications. The panel includes Rick Prelinger, owner of the largest sex-ed film archive in the U.S. I bet he owns some other cool stuff as well.

Dick Vitale's All-American Special, ABC, 5 p.m.

Hate having Dickie V. constantly interrupted by those pesky play-by-play guys? Get in the mood for the Final Four by watching 60 straight minutes of pure Vitale. It'll be so exciting the dandies will wet their diapers.

Men's Baseball -- No. 2 Florida St. vs. No. 16 Virginia, No. 3 Miami vs. Clemson, No. 5 UNC vs. No. 14 Georgia Tech, 7 p.m.

The ACC's top six teams all go head-to-head on Saturday night. A strong performance by Florida St., Miami, or UNC could vault them to the top of the polls.

Desmond Tutu at St. Joseph's University, 7 p.m.

For one night, Phil Martelli won't be the most famous balding man on campus. The Nobel Prize winning, apartheid stopping, AIDS preventing Archbishop will talk to St. Joe's students about creating peaceful solutions to the world's conflicts.

NCAA Women's Final Four, UConn vs. Stanford, 7 p.m. Tennessee vs. LSU, 9 p.m.

UConn coach Geno Auriemma is 5-0 in NCAA title games, with four of those wins coming against Pat Summit's Volunteers. The two are engaged in one of the fiercest feuds in women's basketball (or the only feud) and if they meet in the title game the loser may throw a haymaker during the post-game handshake. The Vols are also worth watching to see Candace Parker risk her future WNBA riches by playing with a dislocated shoulder.
