While that news itself brings a ton of negativity to the school – which is understandable – others still believe despite this situation, being a part of the Baylor family is a smart decision.

For Kim Mulkey, who has been the head coach since 2000, she let the fans know following the Lady Bear’s victory on Saturday that she was not going to stand for the criticism surrounding the school.
