In the postgame celebration after the Lady Bears' Big 12 title-clinching 86-48 victory over Texas Tech, head coach Kim Mulkey voiced her displeasure to the negative coverage in the aftermath of the allegations against Baylor and its football program.
"If someone's around you and they ever say, 'I will never send my daughter to Baylor.' You knock them right in the face. Because these kids are on this campus. I work here. My daughter went to school here and it's the damn best school in America."
Mulkey went on in the postgame press conference to further explain her comment. "I'm just tired of hearing it. I'm tired of people talking on it on a national scale that don't know what they're talking about," she said. "If they didn't sit in those meetings and they weren't a part of the investigation, you're repeating things that you heard. It's over. It's done. This is a great institution, and I would send my daughter here, and I would pay for anyone else's daughter to come here. I work here every day. I'm in the know. And I'm tired of hearing it. This is a great institution. The problems that we have at Baylor are no different than the problems at any other school in America. Period. Move on. Find another story to write."
