This coach has been whipping my lady Dawgs tails for as long as I’ve been alive. Much respect and congratulations on a career only a handful of college coaches can say they had. Arguably, in my mind anyway, the greatest college coach at any level.

I agree with the sentiment but I have to disagree with saying the greatest. You just cant compare the state of women’s basketball to the men’s game over much of her career. There were so few other schools taking it as seriously as Tennessee was and as a result they dominated. I will also throw UNC women’s soccer in there too…while their championships were great, there were few other schools who were really trying. Once they did, the championships have declined.

Summit is definitely up there in the stratosphere but to say the greatest? I dont know about that.
Wooden, K, Smith, Allen, Iba, Rupp would all have to rank ahead IMO.

Summit is an all timer though no doubt.
