Am I the only one who is more interested in the women's basketball tournament than the men's. What the UCONN women's team has accomplished these last two season's has been nothing less than total dominance. I'll be cheering for them to go all the way.
OT - Am I the only one?
of threads that are titled "Am I The Only One?"
There's a joke to be made about lesbians in this post somewhere. I'm not in to either, but yeah, even I definitely find the men's bracket more interesting.
A few sexist remarks come to mind...
What they have done is ridiculous but now it is almost to the point where it is expected and that has become boring. I am actually rooting more for them to lose than to win. I think that would make a better storyline. But to answer your question, yes, I believe you are the only one.
Listen lady, don't talk about the best tournament in all of sports that way.
The UConn situation mirrors what's going on with women's olympic hockey. I believe they are considering dropping the sport due to the enormous gap in talent between USA/Canada and everyone else.
Please correct me if I'm wrong because I haven't watched more than a handful of UConn women's games, but it seems they win because they have hands down the best players (shocking, I know). Everybody praises the coach as one of the best (which he may be) but doesn't coaching really come into play during close games?
The talent gap should not be as large as it is.
the problem, the gap is way to big... and this year its even bigger, uconn has won every game by double digits... but they aren't going to get rid of womens basketball because of this... pat summit and tennessee dominated in the 80's and 90's but not like this... i find it very hard to believe that there isn't enough good female basketball players in this country to have such a huge drop off from the number 1 team to the number 2 team...
Too little competition in the Women's tourney. There aren't enough good teams.
Jason Whitlock wrote an article about the women's tournament last year, and I think he made a good point. The overall field is simply not strong enough to warrant a 64 team tournament; in trying to make it equal to the men's tournament they are hurting themselves. A 32 team field would be much more competitive, and more representative of women's college basketball. Whitlock is a self-proclaimed chauvinist, but I still think he's right.
it's just like watching the women's hockey in the olympics -- only two or three good teams, and the rest just suck.
