The NCAA Playing To Sexual Stereotypes?

I love college football, baseball and basketball, but after what I realized this morning I’m starting to second-guess the NCAA.

Not because they put teams on probation after the person that broke the rules is long gone and not because they charged $3.99 to watch March Madness from a computer this year, something that has been free for years.

Instead my beef has to do with the fact that the Women’s Championship Game (Baylor vs. Notre Dame) is scheduled a day AFTER the Men’s Championship Game (Kentucky-Kansas).

It can’t be because women’s basketball makes more money than the men do, because they don’t.

It can’t be because more people attend women’s basketball games than men’s games, because they don’t. In 2011, 25,147,122 people attended men’s games compared to the 7,582,572 people who attended to women’s games.

Instead, the only logical reason I could come up with as to why the men wrap up their season tonight and the women finish tomorrow night is because the NCAA is subliminally poking fun at men’s stereotypical “performance” issues.

Just because men usually “finish” first doesn’t mean they should finish first in everything.

    Seems to me if they wanted to give the women’s game a boost, they could combine the games at a single sight and (wait for it……) let the ladies’ season come to its climax first.

      Tara, I remember you from class thank you for the egmeuranocent and prayers. I am so sorry to hear about your son’s passing. I can’t imagine the sorrow associated with the loss of a child. I am grateful for everyday I have here at home with my wonderful wife and children. We have been truly blessed and look forward to many more years here together.
