Greensboro, N.C. — Baylor head coach Kim Mulkey isn’t exactly known for having a peachy attitude.

The often-grumpy coach seemed more annoyed than usual during Sunday’s press conference which led to some contrite responses, and even some long-winded criticism of some media members’ questions about Baylor’s star player, Kalani Brown.


Mulkey’s comments were also taken by some as a slight to Iowa star player Megan Gustafson.

Two other times Mulkey seemed to almost sarcastically remark about ESPN naming Gustafson as its Player of the Year.

Once Mulkey’s comments were spread around the Twittersphere, Iowa fans had some visceral reactions to the two-time national champion’s press conference.

Des Moines Register and Iowa City Press Citizen columnist Chad Leistikow chastised Mulkey’s comments.


Irrational Hawkeye also chimed in some with a rational take, taking the opportunity to praise Iowa head coach Lisa Bluder.


Even Iowa State fans took the Hawkeyes’ side.


However, no one seemed more livid than the regular Iowa  fans.
