And I think it's really important for Oregon to, to, to beat Auburn, I think, without that they are not going to get into the playoffs and Washington.

"I'm getting continue some some college basketball conversation, and we'll stay with the women. But to me this overall topic is more. So it's not just about women's basketball. But it's more. So about just the difficulties and how tough it is to follow a coaching legend. So the name Holly Warlick a lot of you won't won't know who that is. But she is or has been the head coach for the university of Tennessee women's basketball team in everybody knows how legendary that program is she play for the legendary Pat summitt she coached under Pat summitt and then succeeded Pat summitt as the lady vol's head coach. Well, she was like oh today. From the university of Tennessee. They're eighty Phillip Fulmer former football coach had this essay Holly, and I met this afternoon. And I informed her of the decision to change leadership within the program. Holly has dedicated most of her adult life to the university of Tennessee and the lady vol's program, she loves Tennessee and Tennessee needs to always love her back. She was front and center as this program developed into the model for women's intercollegiate excellence. Look. You talking about the heartbreak there's no greater heartbreak for her.

"You took it way back to two thousand seven. Yeah. There's no choking. It was just a lot of ads. It's at the dinner table for my brothers. So that was that was how that went. Oh, man. Now, are you there? If you don't make the list in two thousand eight then then how do you feel if you were beautiful in two thousand seventeen. Exactly in two thousand eight. That's I don't that's the thing. I started having like some con- communists. No like one year. I was like a one. You're like Millie vanilla here. Here's your favorite. Pat summitt story. You know, honestly, my favorite pet seven story. Probably off the court. We had so many times where she invited us over to the house. You know, she she was famous for her how how the Pino cord that she's making homemade ice cream it. So I remember one day. I think the most I would over there. And she taught me how you know how to bake the holiday Pena corn and showed me how how she did the homemade ice cream. So I think those are the kinds of memories that are really love and and cherish about coach. And I tell people this and at the time they thought I was crazy. I'd been saying for years, you know, if the men's team would hire Pat summitt, you know, that would be an upgrade she would be great. She could've coached anybody. I don't know if that's the ultimate compliment to give her you would know better. But Pat summitt could coach it wasn't. She could coach women she could coach and she could coached men's basketball division one. I don't think there would have been any. I think we would have gotten past it right away because he would have realized she just as tough as Mike chef ski. Well, I think it's also the fact that she was kind of the first of the kind to coach women like athletes, and I grew up in a household where you know, I had two older brothers. And my dad told me I could do anything I wanted to do and to go to the university of Tennessee into play for a coach that treated me as an athlete and was tough on me. And you know, obviously love me when I needed to be loved, but was extremely tough. And and, you know, set goals and expectations for me that are higher than I ever thought. I could do so regardless of whether she could coach men or whatever she coached women as athletes, and it was kind of the first of the kind of making us realize, you know, like we can we don't have to be treated different like this. This is we step on the court, and we wanna be basketball players if you played Charles Berkeley, one on one. Wait. Can you take him? Can I take him? Is that even a question?

Is that even? Yes. I'm asking me. Yes. Harvard Katie talking about like, it just one on all those seniors golf. We've always seen those goals. No, just it's one on one candidate. It's it's make it taking. Yeah. Like, we're where we were eating at a restaurant. No, you're playing hoops one on one. Yeah. I know I'm trying to help you out. You're really legitimately asking question of whether I can take Charles Barkley. I'm like thirty two years old and still playing basketball. I don't know how priorities if sitting, you know, commentating fulltime as I can take him to. Okay, I'm just I'm trying to be respectful. My my money is on you, Candace. I was just I wanted. I would hope so. I would hope it would blow play. Okay. If it's you against shack. I mean, I just beat him in shooting last like, I mean, you know, we're talking about different positions. Yeah.

Being a Coach's Wife: A Blessing and a Curse
"In you, come in contact with a lot of coaches, obviously in this profession, and there are some. Businesses where you can separate where you can have a career your wife can have a career, and yeah, they they may intersect at Christmas parties or occasionally. But but they are not really. They do not run. Contemporaneous -ly to one another. Where if you're the wife of a coach there's nearly. Yeah. You you can't just act like, you don't know. What I mean, you are you're part of the team. And that's that's you know, you always hear that phrase, and some people may be offended by in terms of a great coaches wife, but you understand it and you live and die. What what happens? Your family or your system coaches. They're just they're all into just as much as your system. Coach it may it's a tough stuff and now again athletes can go back to my life and athletic. I were the reason I went from point a to point b in every step of my life. So it has been very warning for me going through that process. But I did see I was at a crossroads, and that's why just I chose that the family over that lifestyle in that profession in and I'm glad I did looking back. I do miss it. Just like every coach just like every player miss when they retire. But what's best for your family has to take prison over there now, and that was a sensitive interview listened to Seth because I I know people that are close to say, and and they know how tough that for gene, Texas wish was on him and his family. Yeah. In his his last year got a little bit off the rails. As you remember. And sometimes these things are are Neville. And I think if you're an athletic director like Philip you want the decision to to make itself easy. And I think last night it did maybe he feels that with one more game and a road trip coming up tomorrow. It's better just to get out of her way and let her finish that. And then regroup before the the chimney. She'll be playing again team would be playing again probably on Wednesday. I think maybe Thursday, but these things move quickly and as a head coach. When there's no way to avoid it. And I know I I know coaches say all the time. Well, you know, I'm I'm gonna bubble. I don't know what's going on. But when you have the lead sports columnist in that community who's been there now for thirty three numbers. Write a column that's published online at noon today, saying the head coach should be fired. There's no escaping. It. Will they'll work something out with Holly? They're not they're not going to fire her Holly. I know they work at a separation of that. And there will be it will be I have all the faith and coach former hiring a good coach. But it will be someone that's probably has done more times to to to Pat summitt.
Tennessee Lady Vols basketball: Holly Warlick should be fired by UT
"Then one thing to remember about Holly Warlick is she really never pursued coaching jobs. She was all time assistant UT in didn't have a lot of ambition about being a head coach she was really content here. And she was an integral part of Pat summitt staff for many years. She was Pat summitt point guard and I live over the last season when Pat was coaching and that was extraordinarily difficult because Pat was not anywhere near one hundred percent the Alzheimer's without an effect. But she was still coaching. And she was on the bitch. And she was head coach at least in title, but Holly was really having to run the team, and she was also having in a way to kind of help manage Pat because of a very vicious disease. And I just thought she did a remarkable job because she's not just dealing with their boss. She's dealing with a very close friend. And I thought it was just an extremely difficult thing to get through. And she did that. And I think I think most fans really like Holly Wardi, they really do. She's a very likable person on the most likeable coaches of been around. But they're just comes at time. When you've got to let the wins and losses and what's going on with the program and make a change. And that's what they'll applaud when these did it

"pat summitt" Discussed on Be Honest with Cari Champion
"Hey, everybody. Welcome to new edition of the honest. So I'm excited. Five time champion, Derek Fisher here with us as we know. I don't know if I've shared that with you guys I am liquor fan. I don't know if you've heard this just in Oregon news, look. To have you on the show? Yes. But most importantly, we know who you are. And what you've accomplished you coached in the league you now have a new role. Let's talk about that. He is the new head coach of the Los Angeles sparks right across the street where you guys play from where we are filming this tell me about how that all came about years in the making honesty, I think having an appreciation and the love and support for the women's game for many many years. I was reading an article Kevin net was commenting about how Don Staley impacted him as a player inspired, by the way. She led him played the game, and I had a very similar experience. And so I've always watched the game supported love this barks gonna mini games rogue games as well. And penny Toler GM and president teams. We've been close for years and. A couple of times we talked about it about about it. And this time to time. He was right. Okay. So you said you were impacted by the women's game as well. Much like having nets Don Staley impacted him. What was the experience for you? Well, thank for me. Growing up in the household of my mom and dad both played in love basketball in school and kind of you know, as young adults. And then when we watched basketball in the house like there wasn't a difference in gender. We watched women's games, we watch men's games, my younger sister played in high school till she fell in love, and you know, how they some times. And so basketball was this was our thing as a family, and we didn't define it or trying to separate the men's game or the women's game and Pat summitt. Yeah. Who is my all time favorite terms of coaching. I mean one could art alleged the best. Regardless of of demands of women's game. And so I just kind of I don't see, you know, having this row now is like a somehow it's different than what I would be doing if I were coaching teaching, but obvious difference. Yeah. The also the difference is I believe that the game for women doesn't get the obviously the same attention, not the same monetary value. But when you get names, and I've always believed that if you get players who were well known an NBA supported, and are well known MBA to support it, you know, active current veteran, whatever I think that adds more legitimacy for the women. I know people who love the sport understand its purity and think that it's amazing ball. I know I do but having you as a head coach, I believe as a special. I dunno Genesee qua for the sparks, and I've had Candice on this show. She was my very first guest. So talk to me about that. I know she was a huge supporter of having on issues excited. That you were coaching the sparks talk to me about her. As a leader. We got Neka. You have so many great people tell me about it. From the from the beginning of of what you just stated my experience with that. In terms of like, you said there to be involved as one thing, and then sometimes the right voice or the right person being involved is a little bit different for me. When my daughter was diagnosed with reading the blessed Oma Asia, ten months got interviewed after does Utah Jazz game here, and I just kind of from the heart spoke about retina blast Oma families. Please take your kids to get their is Chet. So you don't miss anything. It was almost too late for us. We don't want that to happen to you. And doctors in the field of pediatric cancer.

"Alabama goes down and banks and the three in sometimes that's just like how things aren't, you know, the China when you're winning and things were rolling easy to stay rolling vote when you're losing enrolling. It's also easy to stay rolling. And and and they're clearly struggling right now. But I also, you know, Tennessee because they have such a great tradition, but still you need older players in practice, everyday, teaching younger players what wearing that Tennessee on their jersey meat, you know, and it's not just about learning the history. It's not just knowing about Candace Parker and to make a catching and and Pat summitt when when you put on a certain jersey every day, you're you're upperclassmen are teaching you what that means. What what what? Your work ethic is expected to be everyday in practice. What it's expected to be every day in games. And I think we have so many underclassmen that can be difficult thing to pass on. So, you know, these guys again a lot of scrutiny. I really feel for Hollywood. Because I mean, this has got to be really difficult time not only losing losing at home losing and conference. But, but you know, that's that's sometimes what happens when you have teams with this much you. Yeah. And you would know I mean, if you're just joining our podcast where we are talking to the hall of Famer, Rebecca Lobo, you would know about that tradition and how it's passed down. Right. Because that's what happens that Yukon like people, you know, you come in. And this is your talk. This is what happens in this is how we do things. And so I think that the the expectation is always what I struggle with. Right. Like, if this was not Tennessee if they had this roster of youth because I agree with you completely. I mean, I I was just looking at their roster minute ago Ren'ai Davis's a sophomore Vena westbrooks of saw. More. You know, maybe Jackson is that senior presence. But they green is a freshman like a lot of youth. And so if this was any other team with young players playing in in such a such critical positions. Would we be this upset? I mean, people are upset that the lady vol's are not playing well like this should never happen. And I think it also takes a little bit away from the amount of parody that there is an in our game right now. Right. So like, let's not forget about that. Like other teams are better. But I struggle sometimes because I also think that when people put on that orange like you're supposed to win because that's what I'm used to seeing. But to your point about the shooting looking at conference numbers Ren'ai Davis the shooting thirty eight percent from the field and conference play thirty percent from three and then Mimi Jackson, the shooting a dismal twenty three percent from the field. Twenty four percent from three point line..

"Hey, everybody walked to be honest. I'm here champion. So listen, I know it's part personally and professionally to manage goals, and it's even more difficult to actually make those goals. Become a reality. I knew I struggle with that pushing too much making the people around the uncomfortable. Am I making the right decision? So to be honest, and that's all pun intended. My next guest is goals. She is a champion on every single level. She did it in college at Tennessee with Pat summitt, and again and the pros of the wall, Sandra's parks. But most importantly, she's a mother in a professional world that doesn't always celebrate motherhood. She's leading by example. And that's. You guys. My guest on be honest is Candace Parker. Thank you so much for being here. I adore you. Trump being on it. Okay. So I have to ask you a question as a kid knowing that you have this ability, or whenever you knew that you have this ability as an athlete. Did you see yourself where you are right now as a kid I had so many goals and dreams and hopes and expectations for myself. And I think you know, my dad kind of set the tone of that I can do anything that I want to and can put my mind to and so I think from a very young age dreamed big, and then when the WB came along, and I had some place to go and to put my dreams. That's when I really was like, that's what I wanna do. Okay. So when we think of you most of the world and by world, I mean, the sports world, maybe even off the court new at Tennessee, you were a champion. And most recently, we talked about how sometimes worlds collide in different things happen. Pat, summitt you love her. What does she mean to you? Shaming so much because I think in this day and age a lot of people talk. They talk about what's right? They talk about what you should do. They talk about how you should feel how you should carry yourself. But coach summit she walked it. And I think there's a difference between walking it when everything is great and walking it when you're winning championships. But she walked it when she was sick. And she walked it until the very end. And so for me, I gained so much more respect for her as her athlete. But also just who she was and who she allowed me to become. When she got sick. I mean, it's just it's it's insane. How much respect I gained from her. After that, you said who she allowed you to become who were you when you first Tennessee and under her tutelage, did you become? I mean, you know, how you were when you were eighteen. Sweet. Who were we at any? You know, I think everybody goes through those rough patches when I first got Tennessee, I had all these hopes and dreams I was number one player in the nation. I was signing Tennessee number one recruiting class. Everything was fantastic. I got there. And I tore my knee and I couldn't play my freshman year. So I read to my freshman year, and I had basketball for that was what I went to things were going wrong. I went and shot hoops that same year. My parents got divorced and just a bunch of things happened. And coach's door was always open. I would walk past her office and she just leaner head out. And I would go in there and some days, I wouldn't say anything, I would just sit there and other days, we would talk for hours. And so I think she just allowed me to to figure out my life myself, and then ask for help when I needed it. So we all know that the coach passed away in wind. She did you had something amazing happened to you that here we have this. And I remember watching when you on the championship with a spa. Parks and twenty sixteen watching you talk to our Holly. Rowe and you pretty much dedicated that season to Pat, you were so emotional as we can see it here, and you can even talk..

"Don't count, which is hilarious to me because if you ask anybody, what do you know the university of Tennessee for in terms of lettuce, everyone's going to say the same thing, Pat summitt put Tennessee on the map as the greatest basketball women's dynasty until you came along? Well, she did something many times that school that paid man couldn't do once. That's right. So I mean, so the the, the air against and the added the dismissive attitude of that of that executive from the school that gives you an idea of, you know, it's the south, some of the things she was up against people yelling, go back in the kitchen, Pat people who are who are fans from her own school. So you know, I it what she did was just nothing short of remarkable. Now, of course, with Gino did was also remarkable and the fact that they were ended up on a collision course with each other and each other's programs that was great basketball theater, and I'm glad you know that the Tennessee uconn rivalry is now going to be renewed. 'cause when when the book went to press, that was not the case. And that's, I mean, it's it's sort of like being a Red Sox fan and when the Yankees having downtime. Right. We say actually don't like it when they're not good. It's actually going because you know, for a while there Yukon got rolling and they when they had those great teams with super and Asia Jones. And of course, Diana Ross and swin cash and and Jen, you know, all those guys, you know they were winning winning winning and you thought, wow, maybe maybe Tennessee's never gonna win again. And then along came Kansas Parker and and put Tennessee, you know, back back in the in the conversation. So I don't wanna say player here, so I'll try to qualify little differently, but what did you find to be the most underrated personality slash contributor to the game in this journey you had in this project? Well, that's a, that's a really difficult I will pick more than one, right? Yeah, because there's, there's, there's so many different aspects of the national team, the women's game, the coast. Another person that I dealt with in my young career, he was GM in Washington and scared the living daylights out of me. But I thought he was very eloquent in this book discussing his journey set Sanders, you know, people, there's so many great Celtics. I think people forget about Sach. He was again, so incredibly eloquent talking about. And of course, Dan atrocities just to star. Every time she opens her mouth. She's just a joy to, behold, it was interesting to hear from Linda Woodward. You know, name. We don't talk about as much who was just an amazing woman player at Kansas who broke all sorts of records. And you know, I really liked hearing from Kevin Durant in this book. I thought he had some really thoughtful things to add to our oral history. One of my more interesting parts to for me was LeBron and the decision and having people. Now you know, couple of years out dissect how all that went down. There's some very interesting comments from David Stern on that topic. So that was kind of fun. I thought those are those are. A few that come to mind. Well, once again, the spoke basketball, love story is available now, but it's also a ten part film series consisting of sixty short stories. You can currently stream on the ESPN app and will premiere on ESPN beginning on October ninth, right? It's going to be great danced on a wonderful job at the film, really fun and you know the film and the book of different date. Obviously, a lot of the stuff is that the information is the same, but we did two very distinctly different things with that information. So well, they have a lot of similarities there also in many ways, quite different. I've been diving into it at home and it's great because I can tell everyone like dad's working Liv Malone and there you go. There you go Jackie. Once again.
