I'm not really into college basketball, anymore. I used to be really into women's college basketball but since I don't have cable I can't see any of the games. While the men can be seen on any given Saturday from February until March, and the men's tournament is on CBS for two straight weeks, women's regular season games and the NCAA tournament have been relegated to the boondocks of cable TV that is ESPN2.
I hear male sports journalists put down women's basketball all the time. They talk about how unpopular it is. But is it any wonder that it's unpopular when it is basically invisible on TV. Even the newspaper sports pages only give it cursory coverage. ESPN2 and ABC are owned by the same company, Disney, so why doesn't Disney put the woman's tournament on ABC? ABC sucks as it is so the ratings can only be helped right.
Anyway, I know that UConn is the favorite this year, and rightfully so, but I'm pulling for Rutgers and Temple. If they make it to the finals then I will get to see them play since at least they show the women's final game on CBS.
