Auriemma’s Ideas Draw Response – Albeit Short – From NCAA

by Categorized: NCAA, UConn women's basketball Date:

Geno Auriemma’s comments to the Courant on Monday about how he would change women’s basketball, primarily by advocating the use of a lowered rim, drew this response from the NCAA Tuesday.

In an email to the Courant, the organization said:

“The NCAA continues to work with its members and others to grow the game of women’s basketball, but the issue Coach Auriemma has raised is not before our membership for consideration.”

That’s tall and short of it.

    So Geno didn’t put this before the NCAA? So why all the trumpeting and creating such a fuss. What is Geno trying to not allow us to see with the SMOKE he is blowing??

    Does he think Vets will ever forget his comment about them fighting and dying so his mother (with her passport) did not need a photo ID to vote. Shame on him. What was he trying to do?? Geno in 2014 election photo ID will be mandated in 50 states. Can you get her another photo by then?? Stick to basketball you are a master at that, not so much politics.
