On the question of how Syracuse’s women’s basketball team can beat vaunted UConn, ESPN analyst Rebecca Lobo just stared blankly into the camera for a minute.

“I can’t think of a single way,” the analyst’s face seemed to be saying as it looked searchingly into the middle distance.

Lobo was similarly stumped when asked what Syracuse could do to keep the game close and what UConn could do to lose, rubbing her temple and sighing audibly a couple times.


The Huskies have won three consecutive national titles and so dominated the tournament—winning by an average of 45 points—that columnist Dan O’Shaughnessy suggested they are bad for the game.

Asked what could be done about trolling columnists who don’t follow women’s sports but opine on them anyway, Lobo stared blankly at the camera for another minute.

We can't play sports*, but we can make jokes about them!

*Two of our writers hit a home run** once
**It was in a video game.
