Has the Tennessee Lady Vols program started to crumble?

With the SEC media picking the Kentucky Wildcats to win the conference, Greg Alan Edwards of SB Nation's Kentucky blog A Sea of Blue wonders, "Has the Rocky Top started to crumble?"

Has the landscape changed that much in Knoxville? It's truly hard to tell. The Vols have had more than their fair share of bad news in the last few years...The change from Summitt to Warlick should have been a seamless one since Warlick has been by her side for the last 28 years. Unfortunately that didn't go exactly as planned, due to the now pending lawsuit from Deborah Jennings against Tennessee and AD Dave Hart.

News of top recruits Kaela Davis and Jannah Tucker (click here and here) re-opening their recruitment in the aftermath of Holly Warlick taking over for Pat Summitt certainly doesn't much to quell the notion that the program is on less than stable footing either, although both situations could turn out to be much ado about nothing in the end.
