I bet Mulkey will have her team read. Don't forget these comments.

After beating TCU to land in her eighth consecutive Big 12 championship game, Baylor coach Kim Mulkey, a long-time adversary of Coale’s, appeared to take a shot at the Sooners’ recent lack of postseason success.

“In women's basketball once you lose it, you're not getting it back,” Mulkey said, answering a question about the steps it took to turn Baylor into an elite program.

“(Louisiana Tech) struggles to get it back, and I can name some in this league that are struggling to get it back that have won championships.”

She will definitely stomp on Sherri’s neck to embarrass the crap out her, if she gets the chance.

Ollie if its less than a 30 point game, I will be surprised. We can't come close to competing with them on the boards. Our first quarter starts just kills this team. I really hope I am wrong. Would like to see them play the Bears the same way they played UCONN.

As I sit in LNC I am hoping the Sooners stay within 20. If so I will consider it a moral victory.

When I am sitting in the stands at LNC on Sunday, I will be hoping the Sooners stay within 15 points.

If so, I will consider it a moral victory.

Since Sherri and Kim are so tight friends if the game were to get out of hand I'm sure Kim would call off the dogs. Baylor may overlook OU a little, sad if we reached that point of other teams overlooking us.

Not bad at all, ino. If it led to a victory or two.

This program has gotten so bad, that I will be happy if we win 5 conference games this season. I'm not even going to watch that Baylor game though.

Miracles happen all the time, however, I don't think it will be happening at the LNC on Sunday unless Baylor repeats the UCONN path (long flight, just finished finals, a little over confident, etc.) to LNC.

or Mulkey like Geno just simply takes it easy on Sherri's team then turns it on in the last five minutes to win easily.

Mulkey wouldn't take it easy on a newborn baby. She would probably be screaming for a technical foul every time the baby spit up on her. It is interesting that she recruits talent, but seems to fall just short of what the talent can do almost every year. Two national titles,one well earned, the other kind of stolen.

She will kill us if she can. I think she hates Sherri because Sherri did beat her a lot until recently, and Sherri has something she'll never have, the love and respect of her colleagues.

Kim would rather gut herself with a dull knife on live television before ever taking it easy on Sherri.

The hate is strong in this one, Obi Wan.

I think Mulkey’s drive & desire to win is so intense that she couldn’t give a flying flip less what others think of her as long as she comes out on top.

I hope...

I think we will try some trick plays. We will drive it down to our basket, stand around and watch and then, as time runs down, one of our girls will throw the ball directly at the head of a Baylor player of her choice hoping to knock them senseless and out of the game.

We will do that until we knock all but two Baylor players out of the game.

At that point I think we will have our best shot of winning the game — at about 25 percent.

Ok. I have not seen us actually try that one, but one a couple of our kids try every game is about as interesting. They stand totally under the rim, watching to get a rebound, obviously hoping the missed shot bounces off the rim, and as it bounces out from the basket a strong wind gust blows it back under the rim so they can grab it. Could someone tell them to get out from under the rim when rebounding?

And while you have their attention point out that a missed 3 point attempt will not bounce straight down, but will likely bounce out - at least - several feet from the basket.

Beyond sad! There are many programs, men's and women's (UCLA Men come to mind) that have had really great programs that have eventually lost their luster, so to speak. But I can't think of one that grew the way OU's WBB did and drop to the lows that it has in relatively a short period of time. But here's the kicker...all under the same leadership, with poor recruiting (recruiting was bad when the team had All Americans...many other great players wanted to come to OU but were not recruited or were recruited by assistants but not offered), no development other than a few guards, no camps for youth, nepotism at it's best (let alone a former player is married to her son/coach who was a scout team player...go figure), AND the head coach makes over $1M BASE salary. Where has this happened before? NO WHERE! And no disrespect to the current players. They are playing how I would expect them to play;actually better considering all circumstances. Just because they were good/great at the high school level does not mean they will transition into good/great college players. Who was their competition in high school? Did they spend summers competing against the very best across the country for 4-6 years before arriving at OU? No. So they are doing their very best. Kudos to them. I'm sure the assistants are some really nice people, but who did they develop and recruit before arriving at OU? Think about all of that for a minute. Now take a few Excedrin. AND SC has the audacity to offer COACHING CLINICS! Really? Who pays for that? IMHO...the money she makes, the awards she's received...were based on the success of some really good players that worked hard and wanted to win in spite of...so many coaching/staff/developmental shortcomings. Sad...just a shame.

I won't be watching mulkey take joy in running LNC like she owns it today. And you better believe she's going to have no mercy and rightfully so. This is NCAA Division I Women's Basketball. Not the women's 18 and over YMCA league. I will instead watch one of my favorite games ever...Baylor vs OU in the Big XII Championship game from 2006, way back when the OU players took it personal and won in spite of...poor recruiting, poor development and poor coaching. In stead of singing the national anthem before I watch it, I'll sing an old gospel song, "Bring Back The Days of Yea and Nea"! Google those lyrics and you'll understand my pain when it comes to having to play baylor. Lord help OU today! I believe in miracles!

Baylor vs OU link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcTBdCZcwUM

PS...notice how much SC is up walking the sidelines and interacting during this game. It's really funny when I think about it because it reminds me of that lip sync show on tv with LL Cool J. The singer (SC) is putting on a great show but has NO CLUE how to really sing (coach)! She even does the "mulkey squat"!

I only hope that KM doesn't steal away Colton from the OU staff

Some good moments in the first half. Too much size: Brown, Cox,, Egbo. I thought we had a shot at Cox and Egbo. Be nice to have one of them. Baylor can dominate the interior against about anyone. May get beat if their guards don't develop.

Nice efforts by Madi, Lampkin, Taylor. An offensive putback by Taylor?
