A doggone shame

Everyone knows Monday's game was one of the more boring national championship games, and the proof is in the ratings. The CBS telecast barely beat "Dancing with the Stars" on ABC. It was the third-lowest rated of all-time, beating the 2009 snoozer featuring Michigan State and North Carolina. It was down 18 percent from last year's title game between Duke and Butler, but ratings for the tournament as a whole seem to be up, but that likely has to do with the fact EVERY game was on somewhere.
Kohl's jumped the gun, attempting to sell Butler championship gear. If you suffered through Monday's game, or know someone who did, you know that UConn won its second title in the past decade.
