Nope. There are far more credible women's basketball programs across the country today than there were when Pat Summitt was running the program. The SEC wasn't nearly as deep during Pat's era. Andy Freaking Landers at Georgia was the biggest competition. Mississippi State and USC were non-existant. Geno was still washing uniforms after UConn's games until Pat's last few years.

Holly is recruiting very well. Anybody would struggle in the current environment.
BS! We should be dominating the SEC in women's basketball. Men's basketball is much more competitive than women's basketball and same teams dominate year after year.

BS on what? Every comment in what you've quoted is accurate. Pat wasn't going against millionaire coaches except for Geno... and he probably wasn't making that until after Pat wouldn't play him anymore. With Title IX, now every major school is throwing money at women's athletics... especially basketball.

Weird that you point out that men's and women's basketball are different animals and then compare them.

Holly Derangement Syndrome is an epidemic. Fahr Holly!

Nah. She should have been fired. She has a team full of AA and keeps getting smashed.

She is Coach Cal without the winning.

We have more tradition than anyone and 4 times the attendance than the rest of the league yet we are no threat to win the SEC. You said it Fahr Holly!

Those are ignorant comments. She recruited those AAs.

Cal winning percentage: 77.0%
Holly's WP: 74.7%
Yes. And lost with them too.

With an All Star team that has more talent than every team they play except one or two per year and ZERO Final Fours. Not even a Sweet 16 the last couple of years. She is terrible. Can't coach offense or develop players.

In the time frame HW has been coach Cal has a NC, a National Runner Up, 2 Final Fours, and 2 Elite Eights. HW has 3 Elite Eights.

Cal without the winning. And he has under performed as well.

You may not realize it, but the LVs are ranked in the top 15... higher in some polls.

So Holly has 3x as many EEs as the entire history of the UT men? Thanks for the info. I didn't realize that.

Ranked 15 with top 4 talent.

No accomplishment when you have 8 titles.

There is such a thing as expectations based on tradition, resources, and talent.

When the men start getting a team full of McD All Americans I'll hold them to the same standards.
