Once again, Pat Summitt knew best.
As Tennessee won its 17th consecutive SEC regular-season crown, swept the major conference awards and received a No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament, the Lady Vols’ head coach emeritus just kept watching the wins and accolades pile up.
Legendary Vol Peyton Manning and his wife, Ashley, announced on Saturday they’re donating $500,000 to the Pat Summitt Foundation.
The Pat Summitt Foundation said the current Denver Broncos quarterback’s donation is the largest it has received since it was founded in November 2011.

Having watched balls sail high and bounce low for two hours, Tennessee football coach Butch Jones is still looking for his No. 1 quarterback.

Daniel Hood could sense it from his Tennessee defensive teammates before they took the Neyland Stadium field Saturday morning.
The energy was there, and the Volunteers put it to good use.
Tennessee’s second spring scrimmage went decisively to the defense, which controlled its offensive counterparts for a big chunk of the situational work.
Trailing 8-0 going into the bottom of the third, Tennessee could have easily called it a day against No. 11 South Carolina. Instead, the Vols proceeded to bat around before recording an out, finishing with seven runs on six hits in the frame.
They couldn’t complete the comeback, however, as the Gamecocks pulled away late to claim a 12-8 victory on a sunny Saturday afternoon at Lindsey Nelson Stadium.
