NO, the program has declined drastically as a result of her having this disease. Five years ago, the Lady Vols were anchored as a top 2 or 3 program nationally. Now, we aren't near that level. There is a reason for that drastic drop-off.
The court at TBA is named after her. It's about the University of Tennessee not the University of Summitt. Retiring now is what would be best for her AND the University. Anyone wanting her to continue coaching is thinking rationally.
