Coaching legend Summitt loses her fight with Alzheimer's at 64 (espn.go.com)

Legend isn't enough hyperbole here. Summitt's statistical achievements - eight national championships; 18 Final Fours; most victories in Division I college basketball (women's or men's); 100% graduation rate in 38 years of coaching - speak for themselves. But what doesn't necessarily speak for itself is the immeasurable impact that she had as a leader, role model, ambassador, and advocate for anyone she coached and countless others that she didn't. She is the foundation on which the entirety of women's sports in this country - college and professional - is built. And we're all the poorer for her being gone too soon to a disease overwhelmingly cruel in its irony for her having suffered from it.

Very well said. Being a Tennessean for my entire life, Coach Summit's impact on the state is immeasurable.
