In this episode of the Wait Wait… University of Notre Dame women’s basketball coach Muffet McGraw has led her team to five NCAA Final Fours, is the reigning Naismith College Coach of the Year, and has a spot in the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame. On top of all that, she could almost certainly beat most NPR listeners at a game of H-O-R-S-E.
The only other Muffet we’ve ever met is the Little Miss, so we’ve invited McGraw to play a game called “So what exactly is a tuffet anyway?” Three questions about nursery rhymes and children’s songs.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:
And now the game where we take some body from the Hall of Fame and bring them to the Hall of Lame. It’s called Not My Job.
(LAUGHTER)
SAGAL: University of Notre Dame Women’s Basketball Coach Muffett McGraw has led her team to five NCAA Final Fours. She took the title in 2001.
(APPLAUSE)
SAGAL: She is in the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame. She is the reigning Naismith College Coach of the Year. And I have no doubt, she could beat every single person in this theater at Horse if she spotted us the first four letters.
(LAUGHTER)
SAGAL: Muffet McGraw, welcome to WAIT WAIT…DON’T TELL ME!
MUFFET MCGRAW: Thanks, I’m excited to be here.
SAGAL: I’m excited to have you.
(APPLAUSE)
SAGAL: I was a little intimidated. I know what basketball coaches are like, and yet we’ve spent a few minutes together already, and you haven’t tried to choke me. I feel good. So you seem very nice for a college basketball coach.
MCGRAW: It’s my persona in public.
(LAUGHTER)
