"[Pat Summitt] just didn’t change women’s college sports, she changed all college sports"

Via Forbes....

On Tuesday, legendary college basketball coach Pat Summitt died at the age of 64. Quickly, sports reporters across the country rushed to their keyboards to write the same exact headline – Pat Summitt changed women’s college sports. 
The headline made me think of Summit’s response when Tennessee officials asked if she was interested in coaching the men’s team. “Why is that considered a step up?” she reportedly asked. 
Summitt ended her career with more wins than any other college basketball coach, male or female. She won eight national championships, second all-time behind former UCLA coach John Wooden. She just didn’t change women’s college sports, she changed all college sports. Period.

Amen. And Amen.
