Women’s Final Four

Does anyone have a clue why the marketing genuises at the NCAA continue to schedule the Women’s Final after the men’s championship has been decided? Isn’t that rather anti-climactic?

Then again, as Mister Biggs points out, simulcasting the game on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN HD, ESPN2 HD, ESPNU, ESPN360, ESPN International, ESPNNEWS, ESPN Radio, and is rather odd as well.

When I was at UNC, and the Tar Heels won the NCAA Championship in Women’s Basketball the game was televised on a Sunday afternoon, the day in between the Final Four and the National Championship game. Why they moved it to a Tuesday night boggles my mind. They would do better having the women open for the men.

As with most things regarding college athletics, see my big post up above, it’s a question of money and exposure. I don’t see how, but the collective sports geniuses at ESPN and in the NCAA must think this works. Guess they don’t want to go up against the Simpsons on Sunday night.
