March Madness

After five incredible rounds we've reached the final competition in our March Madness Food Fight — match-ups of culinary heavyweights pitted against each other in a tournament-style bracketed competition. TV food personalities, restaurateurs, chefs, and food writers — they all duked it out to get to this dramatic conclusion, with readers voting on their favorites to make it to these last two rounds.

During the tournament we saw Grant Achatz beat Alice Waters, Guy Fieri take down Alton Brown, and Wolfgang Puck defeat Gordon Ramsay. Now it comes down the ultimate culinary contest:

Bourdain v. Batali

Who will taste the sweetness of glory? Vote in the poll on our homepage to declare the winner and we'll post the results on Monday.


All the ways the NCAA has failed its Women's March Madness teams

On Thursday afternoon, Ali Kershner, the performance coach at Stanford, posted a jarring image of the workout facilities that the women’s NCAA tournament teams had access to compared to the men. The men, who are in Indianapolis, had a giant room equipped to the gills while the women, who are in San Antonio, had one rack of dumbbells and a stack of yoga mats.

Kershner’s pictures went viral and, bowing to public pressure, the NCAA released a weak statement blaming the lack of equipment on “limited space.”

That frail excuse was debunked just as quickly, as Oregon player Sedona Prince showed in her viral TikTok.

The weight room sparked such outrage not because people have grown accustomed to men and women receiving the same treatment, but because the discrepancy was so outrageous and so obvious, it was a slap in the face.

And yet, that wasn’t even the most glaring example of the unequal treatment between the men and the women during the NCAA tournament. As news of the weight room made its way through social media, other stories started to emerge.

Here’s a side-by-side of images taken from Prince’s TikTok, and from a tweet posted by Alan Bishop, Director of Sports Performance for Men’s Basketball at University of Houston, of the food that men and women are getting.

At the least, the dining experince for the men certainly looks better.

Also noteworthy, the difference in the swag bags.

Here are the differences in amenities/provisions between the Women’s & Men’s NCAA Tournament I’ve seen so far

It may seem like a minor thing, but the amount and quality of free goods sent to the athletes shows where the priorities of the organization lie, and it’s not in making the women feel welcome. As people pointed out on social media, the NCAA was so petty that the puzzles included for the men had 500 pieces, while the women got ones with only 150 pieces.

It’s absurd but the real insults keep going.

As The Athletic pointed out, the NCAA also refused to make allowances for child care for coaches during the tournament, which primarily effects the female coaching staff of women’s teams. The NCAA will offer no childcare stipend, and for mom’s who choose to bring their breastfeeding children, that child counts against the team’s traveling party.

These choices are utterly thoughtless and negatively impact women the most.

The NCAA isn't offering support for childcare and breastfeeding children count against the 34-person traveling party limit, putting women coaches in an impossible spot. Cool, cool. https://t.co/iY6LKDi4uz pic.twitter.com/2F0FVyz8nK

Finally, there are the COVID tests. As first reported by Amanda Christovich, the NCAA is using PCR tests for men’s teams and daily antigen tests for the women’s teams.

On call with reporters, UConn women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma confirms that inside their respective bubbles, men's teams are using daily PCR tests and women's teams are using daily antigen tests.

He doesn't know why they're using different types of tests.

&mdash Amanda Christovich (@achristovichh) March 19, 2021

The PCR tests are often called the ‘gold standard’ of COVID testing. According to the FDA, “antigen tests are very specific for COVID-19, but are not as sensitive as molecular PCR tests. This means that there is a higher chance of false negatives than with many molecular tests.”

NCAA President Mark Emmertn told USA TODAY he wouldn’t get into a debate over testing.

“I’m not a medical expert so not going to get into a debate about PCR and antigen. All the health experts said the protocol that we’re using in all of our venues and all of our championships has no different at all in terms of our ability to mitigate risk,” Emmert said.

The difference in COVID testing are the starkest and most brutal reminder of all the other ways the NCAA has failed its female athletes during the tournament.

The weights, the food, the swag bags were all surface level markers that showed how little the NCAA cared about the women, but the different COVID tests are irrefutable proof of who and what the organization values.

The NCAA has never prioritized the health and safety of its athletes, which is why so many athletes have chosen to speak up via the hashtag, #NotNCAAProperty, yet every new level they sink to seems like an unexpected low.

In the end, all the NCAA does is reap the financial rewards from the hard work of unpaid athletic laborers, who have long tried to make their voices and concerns heard.

This is the latest example of their utter callousness, lack of thought and fierce allegiance to a financial bottom line that enriches no one but themselves. This is not just about the women getting the very short end of the stick, but shows the lack of care, gratitude and respect the organization actually has for its female athletes.

What’s happening inside the women’s tournament is an absolute disgrace, and one that just adds to the long list of the NCAA’s embarrassments.

The weight room sparked such outrage not because people have grown accustomed to men and women receiving the same treatment, but because the discrepancy was so outrageous and so obvious, it was a slap in the face.

And yet, that wasn’t even the most glaring example of the unequal treatment between the men and the women during the NCAA tournament. As news of the weight room made its way through social media, other stories started to emerge.

Here’s a side-by-side of images taken from Prince’s TikTok, and from a tweet posted by Alan Bishop, Director of Sports Performance for Men’s Basketball at University of Houston, of the food that men and women are getting.

At the least, the dining experince for the men certainly looks better.

Also noteworthy, the difference in the swag bags.

Here are the differences in amenities/provisions between the Women’s & Men’s NCAA Tournament I’ve seen so far

– Weight room/equipment
– Food
– Swag Bags

It may seem like a minor thing, but the amount and quality of free goods sent to the athletes shows where the priorities of the organization lie, and it’s not in making the women feel welcome. As people pointed out on social media, the NCAA was so petty that the puzzles included for the men had 500 pieces, while the women got ones with only 150 pieces.

It’s absurd but the real insults keep going.

As The Athletic pointed out, the NCAA also refused to make allowances for child care for coaches during the tournament, which primarily effects the female coaching staff of women’s teams. The NCAA will offer no childcare stipend, and for mom’s who choose to bring their breastfeeding children, that child counts against the team’s traveling party.

These choices are utterly thoughtless and negatively impact women the most.

The NCAA isn't offering support for childcare and breastfeeding children count against the 34-person traveling party limit, putting women coaches in an impossible spot. Cool, cool. https://t.co/iY6LKDi4uz pic.twitter.com/2F0FVyz8nK

Finally, there are the COVID tests. As first reported by Amanda Christovich, the NCAA is using PCR tests for men’s teams and daily antigen tests for the women’s teams.

On call with reporters, UConn women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma confirms that inside their respective bubbles, men's teams are using daily PCR tests and women's teams are using daily antigen tests.

He doesn't know why they're using different types of tests.

&mdash Amanda Christovich (@achristovichh) March 19, 2021

The PCR tests are often called the ‘gold standard’ of COVID testing. According to the FDA, “antigen tests are very specific for COVID-19, but are not as sensitive as molecular PCR tests. This means that there is a higher chance of false negatives than with many molecular tests.”

NCAA President Mark Emmertn told USA TODAY he wouldn’t get into a debate over testing.

“I’m not a medical expert so not going to get into a debate about PCR and antigen. All the health experts said the protocol that we’re using in all of our venues and all of our championships has no different at all in terms of our ability to mitigate risk,” Emmert said.

The difference in COVID testing are the starkest and most brutal reminder of all the other ways the NCAA has failed its female athletes during the tournament.

The weights, the food, the swag bags were all surface level markers that showed how little the NCAA cared about the women, but the different COVID tests are irrefutable proof of who and what the organization values.

The NCAA has never prioritized the health and safety of its athletes, which is why so many athletes have chosen to speak up via the hashtag, #NotNCAAProperty, yet every new level they sink to seems like an unexpected low.

In the end, all the NCAA does is reap the financial rewards from the hard work of unpaid athletic laborers, who have long tried to make their voices and concerns heard.

This is the latest example of their utter callousness, lack of thought and fierce allegiance to a financial bottom line that enriches no one but themselves. This is not just about the women getting the very short end of the stick, but shows the lack of care, gratitude and respect the organization actually has for its female athletes.

What’s happening inside the women’s tournament is an absolute disgrace, and one that just adds to the long list of the NCAA’s embarrassments.


All the ways the NCAA has failed its Women's March Madness teams

On Thursday afternoon, Ali Kershner, the performance coach at Stanford, posted a jarring image of the workout facilities that the women’s NCAA tournament teams had access to compared to the men. The men, who are in Indianapolis, had a giant room equipped to the gills while the women, who are in San Antonio, had one rack of dumbbells and a stack of yoga mats.

Kershner’s pictures went viral and, bowing to public pressure, the NCAA released a weak statement blaming the lack of equipment on “limited space.”

That frail excuse was debunked just as quickly, as Oregon player Sedona Prince showed in her viral TikTok.
