What's killing the "girls" game is the dominance by UConn. What's their streak up to now? 111 or so in a row?

U Conn's streak ended at 111
Mississippi State hit a buzzer beater to win 66-64 quite an improvement considering they lost by 60 last year

I was tickled to see that when I woke up yesterday morning. I didn't stay up and watch, and I'm not alone in that, because I figured the outcome was a forgone conclusion.

I hope the women's championship has good ratings.

Your envy is showing TT. And a big dose of jealousy.

Candidly, I would not have watched if UK had been playing. I am not a sports fan. Being from Kentucky, I do hear the results of their games and I prefer to hear that they won. But I don't suffer any of the emotions you die-hard sports nuts do.

I have observed this about all sports. Sports fans are envious and jealous of the coaches, teams, and fans that are the leaders of their sport. For example, I am even less a football fan than I am a basketball fan, nevertheless, I am amazed at the performance Sabin gets out of his Alabama program. Regardless of how he does it, it is an impressive accomplishment. Isn't it obvious why he has so many haters?

Humans are ugly when they wallow in jealousy and envy.

As a Duke fan I can completely relate to the success Bama has had and yes, the haters are constantly on Coach K and Nick Satan for winning, simply winning.

Cal will bring in another batch of fabulous one and done kids and hopefully he'll continue to fail to coach them up as always.

I disagree with the implication of the statement in bold. In regard to recruiting only a dam fool would doubt the talent he brings in. Even one as bias as you agrees that he brings in talent.

As feeble as my knowledge of sports is, the winning percentage that Calipari enjoys implies that he has coaching skills. Especially, unique coaching talent for transitioning young talent right out of high school into the college game. Granted, that is the model he has chosen and it may equate to fewer National Championships than programs that foster more mature senior level talent.

If winning percentage is directly proportional to coaching skill - most evaluations of coaches are based on winning percentage - Calipari will be in the top 5 per cent all time.

I know you Puke Blue Devil's fans are in love with Coach Whiner and it has blinded your objectivity so my expectations for any concession from you is about as good as Puke's chances of winning the ACC next year. Something Calipari does in the SEC every year.

TT's A Duke Fan. That's just sickening. I figure he be a Tennessee fan or something. Personally I use to love Kentucky Basketball but not much since Cal has taken the job. Just don't like the guy much. Still like to hear they win but don't really care if they lose either.

Mike, TT is a big nice guy but no one ever accused him of being smart.

I don't know Calipari very well. He and I own a couple race horses in partnership but rarely visit. He seems like a decent guy. I think he is a talented coach and he reads the good book.

Actually I get accused of being smarter than the averag bear quite often.

The name of the game is winning National Championships. Calamari has 1. Nuff said.

Hey. Your bull is not as fat as that Optimizer. Plus, I know you are a smart guy.

Aren't you going to ask me about our race horses.
