Ouch! That was a rough one. Largest halftime deficit...................................ever? I feel for Warlick, I truly do. What an impossible task to replace not only a legend, but a pioneer. I hope she can figure out how to keep our status up there as one of the elite programs and I really wish her the best.
Now on to why I really started this thread. Apparently Pat was recently honored at a Toledo-Marquette women's game. I saw the article on ESPN and couldn't figure out why in Sam Hill she was being honored at a Toledo-Marquette game. Turns out, Tyler is an assistant coach on Marquette's staff. (Sorry for those who knew, but I didn't).
This got me thinking........... Could Tyler return to UT one day to be our women's coach if things aren't going great with Warlick in 5-7 years? I mean think about it. You aren't going to find a bigger VFL than Tyler Summitt. He grew up in and around that women's program. He played ball at UT for 4 years under two great coaches, Pearl and Zo. He is a very intelligent, respectful young man who I have no doubt understands the game of basketball, regardless of how good of a player he was or wasn't. I think his name could help him big time in recruiting early on in his career. Let him get his feet wet at some programs across the country for a few years and bring him back one day.
I know this isn't the sexiest topic of conversation right now but what are everyone's thoughts on my idea? I think it could really work and while I do not follow our Lady Vols as closely as I do football and men's bball, I always catch their games on TV when possible and I care very much about the success of that program, as I do with all athletic programs at UT. I just don't want to see that program steadily decline because we've lost our pillar. Last night was tough to watch and it was something I'm pretty sure I've never seen happen with Pat coaching. Maybe Tyler could carry on the tradition?
I don't know much about the subject, but I think maybe 15 to 20 years down the road as HW is approaching retirement. Tyler would be in his late 30s or early 40s.
