I’d bet that the typical weekly SEC Women’s Basketball teleconference can be described in one word: boring. The one that took place on Tuesday was a little more interesting, thanks to some prank callers who infiltrated the call.
The calls are meant for members of the media, and are accessible solely through a number handed out by the SEC. Whoops! What transpired was a mix between the Jerky Boys and Borat.
The prank callers, who were claiming to be legitimate reporters from actual media outlets, managed to get on and ask at least six questions to more than half of the league's 12 coaches. The questions were graphic in nature and included inquiries about coaches having sexual relations with players and players' performances based on their menstrual cycles.The prank was clever indeed, but what made it even better was the fact that the coaches went along with it. Arkansas coach Tom Collen was one of them, as he responded as if it were a legitimate question. So really, Coach Collen, just how do players’ menstrual cycles influence your coaching decisions?
In all seriousness, the prank obviously did ruin the hard work of the people dedicated to SEC Women’s Basketball. But even so, it’s hard not to laugh...and eagerly await the audio.
