Warlick takes over, Summitt named head coach emeritus Matt Dixon Sports Editor After 38 seasons as coach, 16 SEC titles and eight national championships, Pat Summitt is stepping down as Tennessee’s women’s basketball coach. Summitt is now the head coach emeritus and longtime assistant Holly Warlick becomes the Lady Volunteers’ head coach. “I’ve loved being the head coach at the Tennessee for 38 years, but I recognized that the time has come to move into the future and step into a new role,” Summitt said in a UT release. “I support Holly Warlick being named the next head coach, and I want to help ensure the stability of the program going forward. I would like to emphasize that I fully intend to continue working as head coach emeritus, mentioning and teaching life skills to our players, and I will continue my active role as a spokesperson in the fight against Alzheimer's through the Pat Summitt Foundation Fund. “If anyone asks, you can find me observing practice or in my office. Coaching is the great passion of my life, and the job to me has always been an opportunity to work with our student-athletes and help them discover what they want. I will continue to make them my passion. I love our players and my fellow coaches, and that's not going to change.” Summitt won 1,098 games, the most in NCAA basketball history, men or women’s, during her UT career that began in 1974. She announced on Aug. 23, 2011 she had been diagnosed with early-onset dementia, Alzeheimer’s type. During the 2011-12 season, her assistants — Warlick, Mickie DeMoss and Dean Lockwood — took on a more active coaching role with the team. “I’m very thankful for all Pat Summitt has done to prepare me for this opportunity,” Warlick said. “She is my coach, mentor, and great friend, and I am honored with the opportunity to continue and add to the great tradition of this program. I’d like to thank (UT athletic director) Dave Hart, (UTK) Chancellor (Jimmy) Cheek, and the University for having confidence in me to lead the Lady Vol program, and we will work as hard as we possibly can with the goal of hanging more banners in Thompson-Boling Arena.” Warlick was a three-time All-American point guard at Tennessee under Summitt during her playing career (1976-80). She was named associated head coach in 2003. Tennessee is the only school to play in all 32 NCAA women’s tournaments. Summitt guided the Lady Vols to 18 trips to the Final Four, produced 12 Olympians and 21 All-Americans. She also coached the U.S. women’s basketball team to a gold metal in the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. Every player who competed their eligibility under Summitt graduated. “It is extremely difficult to adequately express what Pat Summitt has meant to the University of Tennessee, the sport of basketball, and the growth of women’s athletics nationally,” Hart said. “She is an icon who does not view herself in that light, and her legacy is well-defined and everlasting. Just like there will never be another John Wooden, there will never be another Pat Summitt. I look forward to continuing to work with her in her new role. She is an inspiration to everyone. “Holly Warlick has earned the opportunity to be the head women’s basketball coach at the University of Tennessee and to lead the Lady Vol program she has embraced as a player and a coach. I watched Holly grow tremendously as a coach throughout this past season. Under unique circumstances, the job she did away from the glare of the lights and crowds was as impressive as the job she did during game action. At this time in our historic program, which Pat Summitt built from scratch, Holly Warlick, the former player and longtime assistant coach, is deserving of the head coaching position. Her mentor will be available for insight and advice, but this is Holly’s team now.” Tennessee will hold a press conference at 1:30 p.m. EST on Thursday on the Thompson-Boling Arena court -- “The Summitt” -- where Summitt, Warlick, Hart and Cheek will speak.

1824 — Lord Byron dies in Greece George Gordon Byron, 6th Baron Byron, dies in what is now Greece, where he had traveled to support the Greek struggle for independence from Turkey. Even today, he is considered a Greek national hero. Byron’s scandalous history, exotic travels, and flamboyant life made such an impression on the world that the term “Byronic” was coined to mean romantic, arrogant, dark, and cynical. Byron was born in Aberdeen, Scotland, in 1788. His clubfoot and his impoverished environment made his childhood difficult, but at age 10 he inherited his great uncle’s title. He attended Harrow, then Trinity College, Cambridge, where he ran up enormous debts and pursued passionate relationships with women and men. His first published volume of poetry, Hours of Idleness (1807), was savaged by critics, especially in Scotland, and his second published work, English Bards and Scotch Reviewers (1809), attacked the English literary establishment. After getting his master’s degree in 1809, he traveled in Portugal, Spain, and the Near East for two years. His experiences fed into his later works, including Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage (1812), which brought him almost instant acclaim in England. As he said at the time, he “awoke one morning and found myself famous.” His poetry, manners, fashion, and tastes were

widely imitated. In 1815, he married Anne Isabella Milbanke, and the couple had a daughter, August Ada, the following year. Ada proved to be a mathematical prodigy and is considered by some to be the first computer programmer, thanks to her work on Charles Babbage’s computing machine. The marriage quickly foundered, and the couple legally separated. By this time, scandal had broken out over Byron’s suspected incest with his half-sister, Augusta Leigh, and he was ostracized from society and forced to flee England in 1816. He settled in Geneva, near Percy Bysshe Shelley and his wife, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. There, he became intimately involved with Mary’s halfsister, Claire Clairmont, who bore his daughter Allegra in January 1817. Byron moved to Venice that year and entered a period of wild debauchery. In 1819, he began an affair with the Countess Teresa Guiccioli, the young wife of an elderly count, and the two remained attached for many years. Byron, always an avid supporter of liberal causes and national independence, supported the Greek war for independence. He joined the cause in Greece, training troops in the town of Missolonghi, where he died just after his 36th birthday. — This Day in History is courtesy of

UT recycles food, creates compost Christie Elwin Staff Writer On a sunny Wednesday afternoon, Andy Pigg is starting the UT campus food compost run. A UT Recycling intern and environmental studies major, Pigg collects the food scraps from campus dining locations and takes them to the university’s compost site near UT Medical Center. “We’ll probably get about 1,100 or 1,200 pounds today,” Pigg said. That much food waste translates into more than 100,000 pounds per year of rich, usable nutrients. That amount will increase with the recent addition of five more participating locations, including Presidential Court Café, the luxury suites in Thompson-Boling Arena, Southern Kitchen in Volunteer Hall, campus convenience stores and the Brenda Lawson Athletic Center. For this run, Pigg first headed to Arena Dining at Thompson-Boling where the lunch rush was under way. “The bins are put in locations where I just snag them and go,” Pigg said. “It’s limited contact with the kitchen staff, but everyone knows what to do. It works well.” A quick inspection of the bin revealed mostly onion and potato scraps. These scraps are pre-consumer food waste from the food preparation stations. Post-consumer food waste, such as plate leftovers, are collected during special zero-waste food events. On the way to the UC and Haslam Business Building, a class change created heavy student traffic. Pigg carefully navigated through the pedestrians as he described the typ-

ical characters he encounters. “The ‘ear bud’ people are my favorite,” Pigg said. “They walk out in front of me and don’t have any sense of what’s going on. I also have the really adventurous bikers that come out in front of the truck without helmets.” This time around, the course was clear. Pigg steered the truck into the narrow loading bay between the two buildings. The pickup yielded two quarter- to half-full loads of vegetable scraps covered in nitrogen-rich coffee grounds. “It ends up evening out because we have so many wood chips that we mix in,” Pigg said. “The woody material gives the compost carbon, and the food gives it the nitrogen content, which is the limiting factor for plant growthnitrogen and phosphorous.” After several more stops, Pigg had amassed nearly 1,100 pounds of rich, compostable matter. It’s time to put these food scraps to work. Located on East Tennessee Research Center land, a cattle fence outlines the compost site. A hand-dug drainage channel leads rainwater to a small pond. To the south, two wood chip piles loom 15 feet tall and three times as wide. To the north, two “windrows” of compost run parallel, five feet tall and 100 feet long. These are the organic engines of the site, decomposing matter into rich, natural fertilizer for the UT Organic Farm and other landscaped areas. The shape of these windrows creates a natural ventilation system called a “chimney effect.” Regularly turning each row allows oxygen in and excess moisture out. Nutrient balance, particle size and temperature are also

important factors. “About one to two feet in (the compost) gets up to around 130 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit,” Pigg said. These high temperatures kill pathogens from meat and dairy scraps and speed up the aerobic decomposition, which typically takes four to six months. Pulling up next to one windrow, Pigg removed the truck’s cattle racks and tipped bin after bin of food waste onto the pile. “Unless you really like being outside or throwing your weight around, this might not be the job for you,” Pigg said. • Photo courtesy of Christie Elwin Foreshadowing what hap- Andy Pigg, junior in environmental studies, holds a handful of compost from a site pens next, a 300-pound bin of located near UT Medical Center on Feb. 15. UT uses food waste from all over camcoffee grounds from Hodges pus to help create over 100,000 pounds of compost every year. Library landed awkwardly, lid down, sealing in the contents. Pigg wrestled the bin onto its side and manually scooped out the grounds. After the bins were all emptied, it took six wheelbarrow loads of woodchips to cover the haul, which adds bulk, provides insulation and reduces the smell. From time to time, the site also deals with security breaches and theft from large, feathered criminals. “We have a problem with about 15 wild turkeys that rip off the woodchips and eat the compost, and these are big, big turkeys,” Pigg said. “A hunter would have a field day out here.” For the most part though, the turkeys aren’t a huge deal. As Pigg explained, there will always be food scraps to compost. Pigg then turned the mixture and washed out the bins. Once they were loaded back onto the truck, Pigg’s work was done until Friday, when the process begins again.

Complacency allows for pain to persist Preston Peeden Managing Editor For the past two weeks, I’ve been trying to better understand what scares me in the world. I’ve discussed my own personal fear about not making an impact, and also my fear of the sense of apathy that permeates our own society. At first I felt like these two were the best examples of what in society and what in myself scared me, but lately, I felt like something was missing. When people are apathetic, they are indifferent about the world; their apathy allows them to ignore the problems around them. But apathy can’t possibly cover all of the fears I have in this world. It can explain accidental ignorance, but how can it possibly try to explain all of the problems in the world that people know about and do nothing to fix? In short, how can we possibly try to understand and justify complacency? How can we see the problems in the world, know what’s happening and not care? Complacency scares me, and if we’re all being honest, it should scare everyone. It exists in not only how we view ourselves and how our actions affect us, but also how we get complacent about how the world around us runs. There is a malaise that exists in people that makes them consciously decide to not act when something is wrong, to see a problem and do nothing to change it. For many complacent people, they view the world in their own personal-centric style. What matters is what affects them. The things that exist outside of their own world view are simply that; they are outside of their world, and therefore outside of the realm of concern. Complacent people aren’t naïvely ignorant. Complacency is when people know the ills around them, but only chose to act when either the problem is thrown directly in their face or they are the victim of it directly. The world is not a happy place, but rather, there are people in every corner of the globe that are suffering daily. This isn’t a new fact, we all know this, but the majority of us wouldn’t care about the people in Syria if their plight wasn’t plastered across the headlines of CNN, Fox News and the New York Times. When things are out of sight, they become out of mind. Wherever anyone looks, they can see complacency.

While watching the movie “Missing” for class last night, which tells the story of a father and his daughter-inlaw’s search for their missing loved one during the 1973 coup in Chile (which is based off of the true story of the disappearance and murder of the American journalist Charlie Horman), I came face-to-face with complacency. After finding out that his son had been dead for the past month (and also that the U.S. Embassy had been lying to him about the possibility of his survival), the father confronted U.S. officials about what they had been doing. In response to his questions, the U.S. official said, “Let’s level with each other, sir. If you hadn’t been personally involved in this unfortunate incident, you’d be sitting at home complacent and more or less oblivious to all of this.” In short, the U.S. official outlined not only the existence of complacency in the father but also its existence in all of society. His continual willful ignorance of the issues in Chile was not because he was uninformed or stupid, but rather he didn’t care until he became involved in the issues personally. The case of Charlie Horman and his father was a sad story both in real life and in the movie. Charlie was an innocent victim killed by the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet solely because he asked too many questions and was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Charlie’s father would later publicly advocate against the U.S.’s role in forcibly replacing Chile’s legally elected government, but he wouldn’t have done that if his son hadn’t been involved. He became a voice for change, and a man who cared about Chilean plight because of his personal involvement. But why did it have to take such a radical and tragic event for that to happen? The forces of globalization and the advent of technology have made the world smaller than ever before. There is no way to completely escape the daily stories of hunger, pain and violence in the world, and yet we do nothing unless the problems are forced upon us. There’s no way to completely fight complacency, because there’s no way to fix everything. But there are ways to fight it on a small scale. The world is not a happy place, and that won’t change until people are willing to get up and do something about it, regardless of their own level of personal attachment to it. Complacency isn’t a natural human condition; it’s self-imposed. Because of that we can all deal with it on our own terms and in our own lives. — Preston Peeden is a junior in history.

Save children from poverty cycle Urb an La n d sca p e s by

Lindsay Lee I sit in the emergency room of East Tennessee Children’s Hospital for four hours one afternoon a week and play with the kids who are waiting to be seen. There my fellow volunteers and I have seen a lot of really bizarre things and met some really interesting people. If you are ever given the opportunity, the emergency room is a great place to people-watch. One of the things you notice the most at the emergency room is the different interactions between parents or grandparents, the children, and us. We have some children come up with their parents’ encouragement to our toy table and say, “May I play with a toy please, thank you very much.” It’s impossible to frown when one of these kids comes to talk to you. But other times we encounter kids at the complete other end of the spectrum. We have to clean every single thing a child touches, so we are supposed to hand each kid what he or she wants; we tell them specifically to not dig through the box. But sometimes we find kids that completely ignore us while their parents watch. They sneeze on our table and have their fingers in their mouths that they then use to pick out their favorite Ninja Turtle. We’ve seen kids whose faces and clothes are covered in dirt or food, barefoot, with their noses running straight into their mouths while their parents sit with their arms crossed over their chests. Sometimes these parents don’t seem to care what state their child is in how he or she is acting. At times they try yelling, which never seems to work because the kids seem accustomed to being yelled at. We’ve also seen physical fights break out between parents who are going to have their child taken away by the State because of drugs. East Tennessee Children’s Hospital is known throughout the region for being a great hospital for treating babies with drug dependence straight from birth. These kids are turned into addicts by their parents who abuse drugs — often prescription medication these days — during pregnancy. These

drug babies are kept away from their parents for 30 days or more while they are weaned off narcotics. They cry all the time and shake from all the pain they go through. A lot of times doctors have to give the kids morphine — essentially redact them — so that they are not in so much pain. About 40 percent of the babies admitted to Children’s Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit are addicted to drugs. These babies are affected by birth defects, developmental disabilities, learning problems, or behavioral problems. These parents are creating another generation of addicts. I always wonder what is going to happen to the kids that go through Children’s Hospital that obviously lack parental support. Are the drug-addicted babies going to be returned to their parents? Or is the State going to take care of them like they need to be taken care of? Is the child in our waiting room who is dirty and sick and ignored going to do well in school? Are his teachers and peers going to have any faith in him at all? What can we even do to begin fixing this problem? It’s terribly complicated, and there are all sorts of factors that contribute to a child’s development. But one thing is for sure: the whole thing is a cycle that is extremely hard to break out of; poverty engenders more poverty, abuse engenders abuse, and a child isn’t going to know how to act until a parent teaches him. One of the most obvious things that can be done is to improve the educational system. Don’t let the worst schools be the ones that are in the poor neighborhoods. Better yet, don’t give any school the opportunity to be called the “worst.” But it is unclear how one would even go about fixing our system. Obviously it needs more funding, but where? How? Should we test more? Less? Should we try to make everyone go to college or have more vocational training? But it’s also not just about better schools. How can schools alone teach a child the importance of education eight hours a day when the child spends 16 hours at home without parental support or guidance? This points to a cultural problem that I’m not sure anyone knows how to fix. No matter what the solution is, one thing is for sure: more people, especially policymakers, need to be paying attention to the fate of these poor kids in America. — Lindsay Lee is a sophomore in mathematics.

Someday — I promise it will happen, save for an apocalyptic event, military invasion, or the final crash of the economy — the country will elect a president who will say, “Uh, don’t we have to cut spending and raise taxes to eliminate the debt?” This will probably wait, though, until our national debt exceeds 80 percent of GDP — and interest owed plus the reduced borrowing power creates an untenable situation that forces action. Someday, we will elect a president who realizes the rich need to pay a higher level of taxes while also realizing that the saying “landlords don’t pay taxes” (because they simply raise rent to cover the difference) kind of applies to the whole economy — no matter how scary the thought is that a small amount of people have a significant control over a whole lot of money. Of course, change like this usually has to wait until either crisis comes or when it becomes an easier proposition — like, say, the economy has an extended period of gain and deficits become less necessary. The problem, of course, is that offering money to a section of society is usually a positive mark on a politician’s record. When funding stays constant it becomes an expectation and it becomes harder and harder to take that money away. And before you get any idea that this is directed at a particular party, also realize that “national defense” is one of those areas that politicians like to bandy about in reelection campaigns. I think the last five presidential elections might have taught us a lesson about the nature of the presidency — that presidents of any ilk tend to acquire power even while their actual affect on issues, like the job rate or the price of gas — is at least removed by three or four steps from actual influence. Furthermore, presidents pretend to hold more power or knowledge than we can access even though it is unclear if they really do or not; it is another question whether or not this is actually desirable. I wonder if real change might better be affected if people started to pay better attention to those

who are supposed to be our representatives in the government on the national and state level. Offyear elections — in other words, national elections held in years without a presidential election — draw about 30 percent of voters, as opposed to a still disappointing 50 percent. The big drop-off in off-year elections came between 1970 and 1974, which probably says something about how the Vietnam war affected the how people viewed their ability to alter national policy — or, perhaps, how much Watergate changed altered perceptions of the elections themselves. At any rate, I believe this to be the cause of an increasing sense of disconnect between the legislature and the people they are supposed to represent. People seem more willing to throw all their ideological support behind a singular leader and to view the built-in road blocks meant to curb their power — such as the Supreme Court and the legislature — as entities that either have too much authority or a mass of people meant who are ideologue automatons sent to destroy the president. Polls have shown that Congress is generally viewed as less willing to work with the president than he is to work with them — presumably because the president is viewed as the person to be worked with. If you wonder how in the world our current president, who holds a law degree, was able to say, “I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress,” — which is at minimum a poor choice of words — the answer lies in the perception that the Supreme Court is ideologically imbalanced. Which, of course, it is, and it will always remain so because it was meant to be this way. However, now when we elect presidents, we don’t elect a person: we elect an ideology and a whole platform that we expect to be passed FDR-style. I can’t help but think that when voters stopped paying attention to their members of Congress, the ideological gap between parties became more than a temper on the power of ostensibly powerful people and became instead a reason for whole branches to be viewed not as a vehicle for our voice but as a nuisance while the political volition of many became the domain of a few. The looser in this game isn’t politicians. — Gregory Bearringer is a graduate student in medieval studies. He can be reached at

UTPD holds student forums Wesley Mills Staff Writer The first of four student forums was held on Monday at the UC for the new campus chief of police. Along with a fellow reporter, SGA President Adam Roddy was the only one in attendance. Roddy said the timing of the release of information on when this was happening didn’t get out until too late. “I think students do care about the safety of the campus,” Roddy said. “I don’t know how many students were able to be reached out to be informed of this specific meeting. There’s going to be three more of these, so hopefully more students will be at those.” Roddy has been sending out e-mails to as many organizations as he can to inform them of the upcoming forums. As for the potential candidate, 23-year law enforcement veteran and Kansas-native Troy Lane hopes his experience as campus chief of police at the Kansas State University and the University of Wyoming are strong assets to his repertoire. Lane has served the past five years as Wyoming’s chief of police as well as taught numerous classes on criminal justice. Lane has not only overseen many of the social events that go on at a college campus, he has also been privy to managing presidential visits from the likes of President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton. “I would operate those in similar manners to a college sporting event, other than I know I’m going to have a different set of problems,” Lane said. Lane said that while all college campuses are different to some extent, alcohol is one of the main issues all colleges deal with.

tently.” If Lane gets the job, he said his first order of business would probably be dealing with managerial items like getting to know the police department and understanding what they want. With not much stability in the chief position, Lane knows it needs to be someone who is here to stay. “They are ready for some stability,” Lane said. “That’s been a reoccurring thing all day — trying to find some magic way to convince people that I have no plans to come in and leave in another year or two. I’m looking for a place to end things and stay on.” Lane currently serves as the chief of campus police at the University of Wyoming, but says the tactic between herding 30,000 people there during the football games and herding 100,000 here are not that much different. Lane said Wyoming has roughly one officer per 750 people, and UT has around one officer per 330 people. “My stadium on a good day holds 30,000 people, and on a good day I might have 40 officers to cover that stadium,” Lane said. “This stadium holds 100,000 and I’m told on a good day they have 300 people to address those issues. If we do the math, we are probably less equipped, or at least no better equipped, to deal with that number • Photo courtesy of uwyo.edupt of people.” “Alcohol will probably continue to be every campus’ Roddy was impressed with Lane’s credentials and backworst problem,” Lane said. “It will continue to be the issue ground, and hopes that if Lane receives the position the tenthat causes people to do stupid things and unfortunately sion between students and UTPD will slowly reside. costs several people’s lives each year.” “I would hope to see that instead of it being so much of Issues like alcohol can be recurring, but Lane said one of an adversarial world where students are put at odds with the biggest deterrents to these problems is the response of UTPD, I would love to see more working together and more the university. open forums where students can go and talk to the UT “I don’t know if it’s any one issue, as it is so much the police,” Roddy said. “I would love for that communication university’s response to any one issue,” Lane said. “It needs and dialogue to be opened up a lot more.” to be consistent, even, and fair.

Carter powers Vols past ETSU Dan Hiergesell Staff Writer The Tennessee baseball team captured a 5-4 revenge victory over ETSU — who beat them 4-3 back on April 11 — Tuesday night in Knoxville on the back of 11 hits and yet another converted save by sophomore Nick Blount. “We were trying to put last week in the past and move forward from here,” said Blount, who is perfect on the season with 10 saves in 10 opportunities. Blount entered the game in the eighth inning after sophomore Dalton Saberhagen surrendered three runs to ETSU who had cut the Vols’ lead to one. “It’s good to have battles,” said Blount. “It’s a little different coming in in the eighth inning but it’s still the same thing. Pound the zone and try to get ground balls.” Blount’s efforts, which helped secure the win for junior Drew Steckenrider, who came into the game in the sixth inning and struck out four batters over 1.2 frames, still failed to overshadow the 4-for-4 day at the plate produced by freshman Richard Carter. “I was just seeing the ball well and tried looking for fastballs,” said Carter, who became the first UT player this season to record four hits in a game. “I think everyone is sticking to the approach we have and it’s paying off for a lot of guys.” Carter, who is not a regular starter for the Vols, recorded two more RBIs to put his total at five over

his past two starts. Tennessee’s victory pushes them to 22-15 on the year, revenging the loss to ETSU one week ago while showcasing a pitching staff that recorded 13straight outs during one point Tuesday. “There’s a lot of great things that happened tonight,” said UT head coach Dave Serrano. “Richard had another great night. I thought he had a great weekend. We put him in because he brings energy to our lineup and he hasn’t disappointed us.” Alongside Richard’s masterful day at the plate, fellow freshman Parker Wormsley added a pinchhit double that scored the winning run and freshman Will Maddox added two hits and one RBI out of the leadoff spot, while showcasing a game-saving play at second base. “To me the play of the game that gets overshadowed is Will Maddox diving to save the tying run from scoring in the bottom of the eighth,” said Serrano. “That was a huge play. We almost gave it away when he fed it to second base, but to dive and lay his body on the line to block it from going into center field is a huge play and secured the win for us.” UT will look to continue their dog fighting ways when they enter a three-game series this weekend against Mississippi State. “For what we want we can’t win enough,” said Serrano. “When I look at all the one-run games George Richardson • The Daily Beacon we’ve been in, we’re obviously doing something Dalton Saberhagen celebrates with Nick Blount after his save against Alabama on good when the game is on the line and I’m proud of March 30. Blount once again got the save on Tuesday to help the Vols to a 5-4 win my guys for that.” over ETSU

Shock, but no surprise for students David Cobb Staff Writer Three UT students heard the news of UT women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt’s resignation in three different ways yesterday, but their opinions of the eight-time national champion were the same. Abby Morris, sophomore in kinesiology, was eating at Field of Greens in the University Center when she received a text message from the Knoxville News Sentinel informing her of the announcement. “I guess I knew it was coming eventually,” Morris said. “But it’s still a little shocking because I didn’t expect it.” Morris believes the memory of Summitt’s resignation will stick with her. “I’m just so used to thinking of University of Tennessee sports and thinking of Pat Summitt,” Morris said. “And when I think of women’s college basketball, I think of Pat Summitt, and now to see her, such a big figure, my role model, to have to go out this way, it’s heartbreaking.” Micah McDonald, an undecided sophomore, was told by a friend that Summitt was resigning. He was not surprised by the announcement.

“The fact is, you see her on the sidelines and she doesn’t seem to have it all there, I wish she did because she’s a great coach. But she doesn’t and I’m not really all that shocked.” Walter Weaver, an undecided freshman, heard the news while watching ESPN. “I wasn’t too surprised,” Weaver said. “I just didn’t know it was going to be this soon. “I feel like (the Lady Vols) won’t be as strong without her as head coach. But maybe she can mentor someone up who will be just as good as Pat, maybe.” Holly Warlick, UT Lady Vols assistant for 27 years and current associate head coach will be replacing Summitt in the 2012-13 season. But for now the focus remains on Summitt, who will remain in the program as a “head coach emeritus.” McDonald said that Summitt’s accomplishments set her apart in the coaching profession. The UT-Martin graduate and Clarksville native led Tennessee to the Elite Eight this year. “Pat Summitt is going to go down as the best basketball coach in the history of the NCAA,” McDonald said. “She (has the most wins), she basically made women’s basketball as we know it today. “I mean really, who else has done more? No one.”

Pat Summitt stands with Alicia Manning during Senior Day presentations before a game against Florida on Feb. 26. Summitt announced her retirement as head coach of the Lady Vols basketball team after 38 seasons at the helm of one of the most successful programs in the history of college basketball.

No one’ll do it like Summitt Clay Seal Assistant Sports Editor We knew since last summer when Pat Summitt announced she had been diagnosed with early-onset dementia, Alzheimer’s type, this was going to happen. But the reaction is still unanimous: Just because we knew it was going to happen doesn’t make it any easier to handle. Is anyone surprised Summitt stepped down as Tennessee head coach, and longtime assistant Holly Warlick is taking over head coaching duties? No. Especially since Warlick was the de facto coach this

past year anyway, taking a larger role in practice, games and even postgame interviews. But still, there’s that pit in our stomachs. The same one that was there when Summitt announced her diagnosis in August. It’s the nausea associated with change, and the dizziness is only made worse with the fact that she’s all Tennessee has ever known for women’s basketball. And it’s not like things change a whole lot from this season. Summitt is technically still on staff as “head coach emeritus,” meaning she’ll have an active role with the team, however, she will not be on the bench for games. But it’s no longer her program, and we’ve never seen it any other way. It’s bigger than your typical coaching change. It’s even bigger than when Phillip Fulmer was forced out. This isn’t the end of a Lady Vols basketball era. Not a Tennessee era. Not even a women’s athletics era. This is the end of an era in American sports. Period.

No one has ever done what Summitt did. No one will again. Sure, I guess it’s possible that someone could win eight national championships, reach the 1,000-win mark, have two basketball courts named after them, and have a resume with enough conference titles to get its driver’s license. But they won’t do it like Summitt. On top of that, she pioneered the sport, and sports in general, for girls and women all over the country. When her name came up for legitimate men’s coaching jobs, it wasn’t in a sarcastic tone. She recruited the best athletes who also performed in the classroom, and she never wavered when it seemed as though everyone else did. She mastered the tough love coaching strategy. She’d give that famously infamous stare, stomp her feet and scream at a player headed toward the bench in front of thousands of fans, and the players loved her more for it. Now it’s Warlick’s turn, an opportunity she’s certainly earned. But boy, what a tough act to follow.
