Frankly, I don't see this ever changing, regardless of how many signatures are collected. Sure, Lady Vol fans would like to see it, but who else is clamoring for it to happen? It's the NCAA's award. Why would they go along with changing it?
Will other schools start petitions to name the trophy after their coach? Will some school refuse the trophy because they don't like whose name is on it? And, if the NCAA decided to name it after Geno, how would we fans feel about that?
