Is the undefeated UCONN women's basketball team too good?

Following their 98-38 drubbing of Mississippi State on Sunday, their coach Geno Auriemma was asked to respond to a sports columnist’s claim that their dominance is somehow "killing" the women’s game, and in their defense, Auriemma invoked the name of another seemingly unstoppable athlete: Tiger Woods.
