Is there a bigger fraud in all of sports than UConn Women’s Basketball Coach Geno Auriemma? The guy just won his ten millionth National Championship the other day after beating Notre Dame and all he’s been doing is bitching about how terrible men’s basketball is. From

UConn women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma has no love for the current state of men’s college basketball.

Auriemma, speaking on a conference call with national media before taking his Huskies team to Tampa in its quest for a record 10th national championship, called the men’s game “a joke.”

“It really is,” Auriemma said. “I don’t coach it. I don’t play it, so I don’t understand the ins and outs of it. But as a spectator watching it, it’s a joke. There’s only like 10 teams, you know, out of 25, that actually play the kind of game of basketball that you’d like to watch.”

Auriemma said he is speaking as a fan. And he doesn’t like what he sees.

“The bottom line is, nobody can score,” Auriemma said. “And they’ll tell you that it’s because of great defense, great scouting, a lot of teamwork. Nonsense, nonsense. College men’s basketball is so far behind the times it’s unbelievable.”

In particular, Auriemma — who has the highest winning percentage in the history of women’s basketball and has led his team to eight straight Final Fours — criticized the poor quality of offensive play.

“Every other major sport in the world has taken steps to help people be better on the offensive end of the floor,” Auriemma said, citing rules changes that have been made in sports such as Major League Baseball and the NFL.

“This is entertainment we are talking about,” Auriemma said. “People have to decide, do I want to spend 25 bucks, 30 bucks to go see a college scrum where everybody misses six of every 10 shots they take or do I want to go to a movie?

“We are fighting for the entertainment dollar here, and I have to tell you, it’s not entertainment from a fan’s standpoint.”


I legitimately thought I was reading The Onion at several points during this ridiculous tirade.

Hey Geno, you know how I know you’re a fraud? Because you hide in women’s basketball. All you need to do at the women’s level to win is find the girl who didn’t go to the prom and give her a scholarship. Because there is no equal playing field when it comes to the women’s game. The best players are infinitely better than everyone else. Dianna Taurasi, Rebecca Lobo, Maya Moore – they had no competition. Whoever got them on their team automatically won. It would be like Frank Kaminsky and Jahlil Okafor playing on the same team. You got the best players because you’re UConn. Don’t fool yourself though, you are not John Wooden.

Look, I’m all about girls sports. I’d much rather Turtle Princess gets into sports than cheerleading or ballet. But women’s basketball is boring. That’s a scientific fact. It’s slow and they don’t dunk. So the fact that he’s talking about the “entertainment value” of anything is the ultimate irony. Women’s basketball is a lot like Robert Blackwell-Gibbs poetry. Everyone encourages him to do it to make him feel good, but it’s painful to sit through.

There’s also no parity in women’s basketball. All four #1 seeds just made the Final Four. Again. UConn was a 17 point favorite in the championship game. They won tournament games by 56, 36, 51, 21, 23, and 10. It was literally as non-competitive as you get.

Here are the last 16 National Championship scores:

Only five of the 16 games were decided by single digits. 19 of the 32 teams who played for the title are Tennessee, UConn, and Notre Dame. It’s literally as anti-climactic as you get.


This is the game that Geno Auriemma thinks is more entertaining than men’s basketball. Kentucky men’s basketball was basically the same thing as UConn women’s this year. But they lost, because men’s basketball is competitive. Women’s is not.

Until Geno steps up to the plate and coaches a men’s team, he’ll always be a joke. But he doesn’t because it’s easier to win while running a monopoly at UConn. So instead of just admitting that he’s too chicken shit scared to go to the next level, he stays in women’s basketball and claims he’s doing so because the men’s game isn’t “entertaining” enough.

Shut up Geno.
