They had to do something more since she pretty much baited them by saying in the press conference that she didn't care if she got fined.
Awwww.........poor thing! So unfair! :jimlad:
Life is unfair even for big shots.
How do you only win 1 national championship with essentially shaq on your team.
Shes a loser. You can tell what BFs opinion of her is after the way the ISU-BU Big 12 Championship game went down and she ran up the score. He did the quickest blow by handshake. I don't wish for someone to get hurt ever but I wouldnt have been opposed if Griner would have gotten hurt when Mulkey left her in the entire game despite destroying us.
USA Today trying to make her look more coordinated than she really is
After the call, Mulkey tore off her blazer and stormed toward the officials in protest but did not earn a technical foul.
"Attempted to tear off but didn't know where her arm holes were" would be better wording.
And it is not like the pros aren't going to get physical with Griner:
Lynx stifle Brittney Griner with physical team defense
They are taking it easy on her. I think it is because she stated that she didn't care. A ten game suspension wouldn't have met anything to her at all. Being kicked out of her coaching position wouldn't even have phased her. When you know that your penalties will have absolutely no effect, then the penalty just becomes a gesture. I am surprised they penalized her at all, she obviously possesses a moral stature far greater than the NCAA or anyone else for that matter.
Also interesting that the NCAA isn't reimbursing Baylor for the trip to Regionals. That can't be easy on the budget.
mitten, they didn't penalize her, they gave her a pat on the wrist (notice I did not say slap) for actions that would have gotten other coaches much more punishment. The governing body lets top scholl coaches get by with many infractions.
That gif never ceases to make me smile as I remember it all unfolding on the tv. I did a great impression of it for my co-workers the next day. But the suspension means very little. It's basically a token symbol from the NCAA that says, "see, we can follow through on something."
Maybe Mulkey will thumb her nose at the NCAA again by failing to make the tournament to serve her suspension.
