It’s interesting that the men’s Final Four and championship game are both behind paywalls while the women’s championship game will be over the air on ABC (and ESPN). The audience for the Iowa-South Carolina game is going to blow away the audience for the men’s final. The numbers will be nowhere near close.

We had the absolute pleasure of hosting the Mississippi State University Club Ultimate team this weekend for the Huck Finn 2024 tournament in O’Fallon, Illinois. The guys did great going 5-2 against high-quality competition from across the country.

The team is made up of some really amazing people, and we’re very happy our son is part of such a great group.

If there ever was a year where the NCAA should have made the effort to bring parity to the apps for the men’s and women’s NCAA Tournaments, this was the year. What a lost opportunity! The image on the left is the women’s iOS app, and the image on the right is the men’s iOS app. You’ll see that the women’s app lacks support for iPadOS, macOS, and watchOS. Why?

From a product perspective, I would argue that there is no need for two apps at all. Men’s and women’s college basketball games have no differences whatsoever. It’s time for the NCAA to consolidate their separate technology budgets to make one great March Madness experience for all fans.
