    Re: Kim Mulkey to miss an NCAA Tournament game

    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.

    Re: Kim Mulkey to miss an NCAA Tournament game

    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.

    There a plenty of coaches that could instruct her on the proper technique for removing and tossing the jacket. Tim Floyd for example!

    And it is not like the pros aren't going to get physical with Griner:

    I said all along that Delle Donne was the one I would draft, all around game, inside, 3 point shooting, dribble drive.... and she has size. Griner is great, but Delle Donne is a much better athlete and all-around versatile player.

    Delle Donne is averaging 20 pts a game
    Griner 15

    Though Britney's shot blocking skills are also a great weapon to have, but in the pros, you can't wander as much like she did in college.

    Agree that Delle Donne is the real deal and off to a great start as a pro. Griner was a big thing in college and is a good pro but she is not the hyped female version of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Heck, she is third in scoring and rebounding, not in the league, on her own team.

    Re: Kim Mulkey to miss an NCAA Tournament game

    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.

    Re: Kim Mulkey to miss an NCAA Tournament game

    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."


    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    (maybe)

    Agree and punishment is great but meaningless because Baylor will still be a high seed and the first round opp. will be a joke.
