    I have ejoyed watching the lady vols come out this year and do their thing. I also enjoy watching coach Summitt on the sideline as she encourages the lady vols that there is no defeat in their vocabulary.Candice I will miss seeing you and 00 help to make it happen. Candace what are your future goals at this time the reason why you are going to call it quits this season Best Wishes to the lady vols in years to come I will still be a fan!!
