    I didn't actually hear her interview. I know about it from listening to the Chip Brown podcast with Vic in the other thread. At the 21:45 mark Chip mentions Kim's interview on local Waco radio and the shade she threw about Sam Houston. Vic can not stop laughing. She is so ridiculous.

    In the thread "Articles and Interviews", look for a reference about Mulkey. Basically, the interviewer said, "Coach, Kim Mulkey was interviewed by [local radio station?] and she said...." Vic talks about it and laughs it off. But the fact that he knows his total record against her, across multiple schools, means he keeps her in mind.

    Well at least she confirmed they are looking at the portal everyday for a final piece for the upcoming season.

    Good. Fuel for the desire to kick their arse. Vic isn’t gonna settle for a team that rolls over. But, I like that he’s always quick to point out that Texas can’t afford to put all their angst and focus on the university of waco.

    I sense a much different dynamic between Mulkey and Schaefer than was had with Aston. I always thought Mulkey was irritated that Aston might challenge Baylor. But didn’t really feel it would happen. And was dismissive of Aston. I just sense Schaefer will challenge and threaten Mulkey and she knows his success can be real and sustainable. They both will downplay it for now. But the matches will be testy. It may be the second year before it gets nasty in Wacko. If Mulkey trash talks our players in the future, nasty might be an understatement. Fun to think about.

    It is my hope the games between Baylor and Texas will become the premier must-watch rivalry in women's basketball, supplanting previous Connecticut-Tennessee, and more recently Connecticut-Notre Dame before the Irish left for the ACC. It'll be good for the women's game, outstanding for the Big 12, and better for Texas high school girls basketball.

    Out of this I think both Mulkey and Schaefer will have a respectful and healthy relationship because they're cut from a similar cloth, both are old school coaches who preach defense. At least it can't get worse than the Aston-Mulkey relationship. I'm looking forward to this.

    I was saying almost these exact same words this morning to a friend.

    Elena Lovato media availability session. Describes how they target/recruit players, practices.

    This could be a result of the pandemic situation or just the new coaching staff‘s approach but I am 99% sure we’ve heard more from this new group of assistant coaches in the 7 weeks since Vic was hired than in the previous 8 years combined. I’m not trying to disparage the previous coaching staff because we’ve all read plenty of that already and it’s time to move forward with Vic & Co. I just appreciate the level to which all of the coaches are trying to maintain the enthusiasm that their hiring has brought.

    My thoughts exactly! You can't tell the difference between the head coach & assistant coaches. I just love how invested they are into Texas.
