Tired of UConn? Plenty of Others to Be Mad At
The Connecticut women's basketball team captured its third straight national championship on Tuesday night, topping Notre Dame, 63-53, in Tampa Bay.
The win was the 10th title for Huskies' coach Geno Auriemma.
There are those who love dynasties. There are those who hate dynasties. Perhaps the reason the women's game lacks the popularity of the men's game is that it lacks true parity. Only a handful of teams have a chance at reaching the National title game, and even less have any shot at beating Connecticut.
That's not UConn's fault. Auriemma has built a power through recruiting and success, and he should continue to reap the benefits.
If you want to be upset with anyone, be upset with the other coaches that aren't able to steal a handful of prized recruits away from Auriemma. Be upset at the Girls' Youth Leagues that are failing to develop enough star players, making the NCAA women's field extremely top heavy.
Don't be upset with Geno, he's done it the right way. He's built what every fan wishes their program would become.
