Remember the “Yip Lady” from UT-Arlington?

This had escaped my memory, but during last year’s Kentucky/UT-Arlington game, there was a woman who sat behind the Maverick’s bench and “yipped” every time Kentucky was at the line. It got so bad that UK fans started yipping whenever UT-Arlington’s players shot their free throws and, according to Hunter Goatley, the arena “sounded like a pond full of frogs at the end of the game.”

I went back to the tape and found the yips, which seem to come from the lady in the orange jacket over near UT-Arlington’s bench…

Will Yip Lady be back tonight?

    If this lady doesn’t throw a table or catch a folding chair under her arm pit I have no use for her.

    It’s one thing for fans to try to be distracting and make noise/wave etc., but I consider it very poor form and unsportsman-like conduct for someone affiliated with the team or on the coaching staff to engage in this type of behavior.
