3 reasons Mo’Ne Davis’ ‘Sports Illustrated’ cover is an ever bigger deal that you realize 

1. When there’s a woman on the cover, she’s almost always with a man — or in a swimsuit.
When a woman is featured on the SI cover, she’s most often either in a swimsuit or accompanied by a man — like UConn’s Diana Taurasi with Emeka Okafor in 2003 or UNC’s Rashanda McCants with Tyler Hansbrough in 2008. Covers featuring actual female athletes by themselves are exceedingly rare, with only the U.S. gymnastics team (i2012) and Hope Solo (20011) getting the call in recent years.
