The Women Screw It Up Again (NCAA)

    First of all, I want to apologize for posting a thread about women's basketball. Snooze. Truly, it's not my thing.

    But, so, I got around to looking at the women's bracket today...

    For the love of all that is right, sane and holy, why are UConn and Tennessee not in the same freakin' region?

    In a year when the whole tournament is a laffer because of UConn, why not give it some appeal? Tennessee is a 5 seed-- you could put them anywhere!

    These two teams haven't played in 2 years, right? After Pat pulled the plug over some dirty, unknown secret?

    Look-- it's a down economy. Please give people a reason to put an eyeball on your sport!

    It's not hard, folks.

    UConn could play Tennessee in the nude and I wouldn't watch.

    OK, maybe I would watch.

    They haven't played because Tony the ass was going around telling recruits Pat was gay during her divorce. Can't say I blame Pat for refusing to play his fucking ass ever again.

    And Tennessee, much as I love them, won't make it out of the second round this year, so there's no way they'd play UConn anyway.

    Are Diana Taurasi, Sue Bird and Elena DelleDonne added to the UConn roster for your special game, TSP? If so, I will pay my quarters to watch.

    I have always thought she was sneaky hot.

    The woman's bracket really is screwed up and that's just one example.

    I thought this was going to be about how the Fightin' Jackrabbits got jobbed with a No. 7 seed.

    If I were the women's committee, I would've given Tennessee an easy path to UConn to all but insure a matchup.

    I don't blame Pat for pulling the plug-- my point is that it's a situation fraught with drama.

    And the women's game needs that.

    They whiffed bigtime.

    If I were their television partner, I'd be wicked pissed.

    I thought this was going to be about South Dakota State only getting a 7 seed and having to play in Texas against Texas Christian, even though SDSU had the second-most wins in the country after UConn.

    Free the Jackrabbits!

    Zeke12: Wow, midwesterners thinking alike and you beat me to it goddamn it.

    I think Elijah Wood's hot, so I really can't make snarky comments about who anybody else finds attractive. I'm just surprised is all.
