It was destined to be.

The first thing you have to realize is the Muffet and Geno hate each other.  No, really.  They try to appear all polite and stuff on the record but they’re really seething underneath.

Well, Muffet does anyway.  I think Geno hardly notices anyone now that Pat Summit is safely in the rearview mirror.

So the question everyone asks is why is UConn so dominant.  For one thing it is the top sports program in Connecticut.  We have no Major League teams, UConn Throwball is a joke, likewise Men’s Basketball.  You want to know the only one that comes close?  Women’s Soccer.

Also Geno could be coaching rabbits or aliens.  He doesn’t care.  The Lady Huskies are are as tough as nails and better than the guys who they regularly scrimmage with and almost always beat.  Geno is the type of coach who would do a split squad simulated game with the Red flags those players with the skills closest to the team they’re matching against, Starter or not, and the Blue flags everyone else, Scrub or not.  Winner hits the hot tub, loser gets extra practice with Geno “patiently” explaining what they did wrong.

He only looks like a nice guy, he’s a godless killing machine.

Now some people see UConn dominance as a problem and have proposed various fixes.  Diana Taurasi says- “grow up.”

And most of Connecticut agrees.  You see, before 1985 it wasn’t much of a program at all and we’ve more than paid our dues.  Some things you can never change no matter how you jigger the rules and one of them is the best teams attract the best players.

There are those who look forward to Geno’s retirement before he doubles John Wooden’s record, that’s as may be.  We won’t have to look far to find some alum he’s taught the system and until the other teams change to keep up, UConn will continue to win baring flukes, injuries, or some super human player.

(ps. Please read the link and for the record I think the Men and Women should play under exactly the same rules, if you want more scoring you need to shorten the shot clock, not lengthen it, and lowering the rims (Geno’s big idea) is just dumb- if you want a dunk contest where only the last 4 minutes matter watch the NBA.)

The Battle of the #1 Seeds.  Notre Dame over South Carolina.  Maryland won’t be as much fun to crush as Tennessee, but we will anyway.  Tuesday the Grand Finale, Notre Dame thinks they can win because they have before.

Not this year I’m afraid.

Sorry Dayton, you were a real Cinderella story and I’ll be sad to see you go.  You have a much better program than most people thought and I look forward to seeing you do even better in next year’s tournament.

I’ll try and console myself with the prospect of crushing Tennessee like bugs unless of course it’s Maryland who we will also crush like bugs but it won’t be nearly as enjoyable.

2015 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament: Round of 64 Day 2

Ok, so what you have to remember when you look at this schedule is that ESPN is is Headquartered in Bristol CONNECTICUT, just before Otis Elevator (their test facility is about the highest building in the state outside of Hartford and sticks up from the rolling bucolic hills like a gigantic middle finger) within spitting distance of Lake Compounce (the oldest kind of sort of continuously operated amusement Park in the country).

You can tell it’s ESPN because they have this forest of satellite dishes in the front yard.

Anyway, they’re HUGE Lady Husky fans so it’s no wonder they get a Prime Time slot all to themselves, even if it’s only ESPN2, the channel for people addicted to sports nobody watches.
