Was thinking the same thing. Would have preferred a Geno and Pat interview. I suspect time has changed some perspectives, and it would be interesting to read. Muffet's a good coach, but she's won zero championships with some pretty loaded teams. It's not like ND has trouble getting recruits. It is ND after all, so the place pretty much sells itself.
I think you may be mistaken on a couple of points. First, I would guess that this article is about the current state of WCBB, not its history. Over the past few years, Geno and Muffet are the two most successful coaches if you look at wins, FF appearances, and NC game appearances. Thus it would make sense to interview them. Also, while I hate the bad blood between Geno and Muffet, that sort of stuff generates interest, and with Pat suffering from dementia and no longer an active coach, featuring her alongside Geno might create be a less compelling article, or at least an article reflecting on the past instead of examining the present. Also, ND won a NC in 2001, so it's not true to state that Muffet has won zero NC's.
Second, where are you getting the idea that Muffet's teams have been loaded? She has developed players well, but the great recruiting that you see now is a recent phenomenon, and Notre Dame has yet to reap the full benefits of the step up into the recruiting elite, as the class on the leading edge of the boon are just starting their junior campaigns. During the past 4-year run of FF appearances, here are McDonald's AA that Muffet successfully recruited, followed by their average recruiting services ranking:
Class of 2007: Dev Peters (28th)
Class of 2008:
Class of 2009: Skylar Diggins (3rd)
Class of 2010: Kayla McBride (32nd)
Class of 2011:
Class of 2012: Jewell Loyd (3rd), Michaela Mabrey (41st)
Class of 2013: Taya Reimer (4th), Lindsay Allen (23rd)
Class of 2014: Brianna Turner (3rd), Kathryn Westbeld (20th)
Muffet has done a lot with a little to this point, at least compared to the elite teams in WCBB. In the next few years, she will have more highly regarded material, so we'll see how she does. Following this season, the teams only loses two non-starters (Whitney Holloway and Markisha Wright), so ND should be very strong for the 2015-16 season. Of course UConn will have a couple of seniors named Breanna and Moriah then...
