No One Could Hear Caitlin Clark’s Final Four Interview Because The Press Conference Was Right Next To The Loading Dock

What idiot was in charge of this one?

In case you haven’t noticed, or you’ve been living under a rock, women’s college basketball is having a moment. It’s actually been having a moment for the past two or so years, if you can still categorize that as a “moment.”

A lot of that momentum is due to Iowa Hawkeyes superstar Caitlin Clark, who has unlimited range from deep and a whole lot of moxie. Is anyone still saying moxie in 2024? I guess I just did, but anyways, a lot of people have been drawn to Clark and her story.

When I say a lot, I mean a lot. To be specific, around 12.3 million people tuned in to her and Iowa’s last game against the defending champion LSU Tigers in the Elite Eight. It was the most watched women’s basketball game of all time, and out-rated a number of what you could call “mainstream sporting events.”

Fast forwarding to earlier this week, Clark was talking to the media ahead of her and Iowa’s Final Four matchup against the UConn Huskies, which takes place tonight. It should have been a moment of celebration, and time for Clark to speak on her and her team’s incredible run, and how she’s playing some of her final games as a Hawkeye.

Instead, every media member that was there could barely hear her (and vice versa) because the NCAA set up the press conference area right next to the loading dock of Cleveland’s Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. The Q&A session became tedious because forklifts and other heavy equipment were making too much noise in the background.

Absolutely embarrassing.

Everyone just assumed that the NCAA had something to do with this, so they started tearing the organization a new one in the reply section below the video of Clark’s forklift-interrupted press conference:
