Bayer, I appreciate your thoughtful reply so let me counter with a few points on your comments I editedI..... I would suggest that with the talent advantage the Lady Vols have now and have had in the Holly era.... that winning in the SEC (yes even the SEC) should be relatively easy
.... 25 wins a year means you have 10 losses... that is not hard to do IMHO From memory, I think Alabama has beaten Tennessee a few times in a row... how does that happen?
Dawn’s NC team was very talented with some AA’s so she earned her titles that Holly would not have won easily. Last year, Tenn had two supremely talented Seniors and 5 talented freshman, tough mix to win a Conference title with. However Vic won with only 1 AA (Vivians) and some well developed players (#2/#3 on my list) so in my view, yes Holly had talent but not overly so with 5 freshman so winning easily is an overstatement.
Tenn has been 25-8, 20-12, 22-14, 30-6
Georgia had a great year last year at 26-7 but had 21, 16, 19 wins it previous seasons without AA’s
Mizzou also had a great year last year with 24-8 but had 22, 22, 19 wins its previous seasons with just Sophie
And your aforementioned Kentucky had 15 wins last year, 22, 25, and 24
All of which reaffirms my point that getting 20+ wins ANNUALLY is incredibly hard.
For the total wins it’s
I get that Holly inherited a Rolls Royce and is scratching the exterior, however the car is still running pretty well and significantly better than most.
And now, I need to take a long hard look in the mirror at myself to see how my inner Lady Vol found the day of light..
