“If it's for personal reasons on either side, that's just bad, and it's bad for the game.”

Tennessee's decision to discontinue it series with Connecticut is puzzling. Why would Lady Vols coach Pat Summitt or athletics director Joan Cronin elect to end the most storied rivalry in women's college ... via

With the likes of Duke, UConn, UNC, Texas, Georgia, Stanford, ASU, LSU, Vandy, ND, Ole Miss, ODU, Rutgers, Alabama and Miss. State on your Schedule every year...... Maybe a few years without UConn in there, may not be such a bad idea. There are plenty of other Schools that would love to have UT on there schedules. A couple years off is not a bad idea, maybe CBS can carry a UT/Oklahoma game next season......Relax, everything is irie....

Knowing the strength of UCONN this year ( Average 40 points over the competition) I think Pat did not want to face that this year. Now seeing the Vols lose at home to an unranked team, staying off the court with a team that woulld probably chew you up and spit you out doesn't seam like such a bad decision.

I wouldn't play the cheats either. Of course Pat could go behind the scenes and arrange a "secret behind the scenes tour of the women's basketball hall of fame too", but she elects to be on the up and up!

Tennessee Lady Vol fans are glad to see the series end, because they can't stand to even be in the same arena as those ignorant yankees!
