Women's Final Four thread

    Is anyone else watching?

    My first comment isn't about the game itself, which is good so far, but about the broadcast: ESPN needs to lose the in-game interviews with the coaches. It's the god-blessed Final Four, for pete's sake. They add nothing. The coaches are both off-the-charts pissed they have to do them at all. It's completely uncomfortable to watch. They make the broadcast worse, not better.

    I'm stunned the coaches would agree to do them.

    I mean, this isn't pulling a coach to the side on the way to the locker room at halftime. They are pulling them out of their huddle during freaking timeouts during the basketball game. The second half of the national semifinal. Between two heated ass rivals.

    Working so not watching, but yeah, that seems ridiculous.

    I just tuned in and received my annual reminder of "Skylar Diggins. Yum."

    On a basketball note, I cannot imagine how irritating it must be for Geno that the best point guard in the country grew up in South Bend.

    This is a hell of a game.

    Against the urging of some of friends, I have stopped the recording of The Killing to watch the games. There will be repercussions later, I am sure.

    You're a freak :D
  10. Skylar Diggins is very good. She does need to assert herself more, though.

    Agree and disagree.

    Mainly, they'll do what they can to make broadcasts more accessible, and if this helps bring in some people, there are much worse things to which ESPN could resort. Geno Auriemma is a piece of work - a piece of something else, too - but he'll do what he can to help the women's game.

    Completely agree that the in-game interviews aren't doing anything, but the coaches would probably feel like they're trying to not help by refusing to aid the broadcasts.

    Maybe so. But she's our freak.
