1. I wonder how this will affect Tenn's recruiting ability?


It will give Tenn some stability for a while, but it is really postponing the inevitable. If Holly Warlick fails or doesn't meet the Tenn fans' expectations with national championships, will Pat retire completely? I can't see any incoming head coach wanting Pat in the teams "back seat."
