We would be remiss not to note the unimaginable passing yesterday of Coach Pat Summitt, the granite pillar of Rocky Top. She was head coach for 38 years, winning 8 National Championships. I may be a naturalist but I grew up in a sports family, and there was no sport bigger than Lady Vols Basketball. This would have broken my late father Russell's heart.
Photo taken an hour ago at Pat's statue on campus. For you Dad.
