I was thinking the same thing.^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
You can generally tell who follows women's basketball by who makes dumb comments like that.
Why would Mulkey leave a program that she built from the ground up, for a school that was essentially her rival institution as a player and coach?
As for Starkey, I'm not so sure it was so much an "in your face" moment. It was good that everyone got a fresh start after Van left. Nikki is a young up and coming coach. She doesn't need an older more experienced coach second guessing her while she's establishing her program. On the other side, Bob was able to land a job with the BEST coach in the SEC who's also a hall of fame coach. That's a better fit for him in my opinion. Nikki needs to build her own legacy, and deal with the difficulties that go along with that.
LSU has played well against the last three ranked teams they've played TAMU, UK, and USC........regardless of what the final score indicates. All of those games were close till the last two minutes...................when this team just ran out of gas. And that's gonna be the case probably the rest of this season with such a young, thin team. That's what happens in a REBUILDING year. The team will be much improved next season with the added infusion of talent and depth, and the experience being gained by the newer players. The future is bright.
