    Way Overdue - But Kudos To UConn

    It finally happened, and at the worst possible setting for the Huskies - the girls lost. So, sad, too bad. But I have nothing but admiration what that team accomplished the last 2.5 seasons. Amazing, with the luck and good furtune happening for them, especially this season with a new, essentially young team. I'm not a real fan of womens BB, but they are good.

    Congrats, MSU. You ladies earned it, and deserved it.

    They had a nice run. Plus Geno has no problem reloading every year as the best players all want to go to UConn.
    Even if Donald Trump wins all the toss up states, he would still lose - R. Madcow 11/16

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.

    It's unreal in this day and age that anyone is that dominant. It's no healthier for the sport than the UCLA teams of Alcindor and Walton or the Yankees of the 20's. But it is amazing.

    Only really happens in the lower tier sports, not meant to be a slight, I mean lower than the big two of NCAA football and mens basketball.

    It is hard to get much more dominate than this. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NCAA_Rifle_Championship
    If what I say offends you then you really don't want to hear what I keep to myself.

    I'm more impressed with Alaska Fairbanks. The enrollment must be quite small compared to other schools.

    College wrestling.

    Cael Norman Sanderson (born June 20, 1979) is an American college wrestling icon who rose to prominence while at Iowa State University. He is considered one of the best American amateur wrestlers in recent history. A 2004 Olympic champion in Athens, Greece, he went undefeated in four years of college wrestling at Iowa State University (159–0), winning four consecutive NCAA titles (1999–2002). He is the only wrestler in NCAA Division I history to go undefeated in official matches with more than 100 wins.

    You would think the service academies would be a little more dominate.

    Alaska Fairbanks U is about half the size as West Virginia U, so its not really that small.

    What he is doing as coach at Penn state is amazing as well. They just had 6 kids win national titles.
    Out of 10 weight classes. Never done before.
