The team should be proud to finish as the second best team in the entire country. It was exciting to see the women play their way through the competitive NCAA tournament. Great season ladies - thanks for giving us sports fans something to cheer about.

Bye Bye Tara: Be careful what you ask for. Getting a basketball team to the NCAA championship is no easy task. There's no promise that new head coach would actually get the team to the NCAA final, much less win it. And remember, Tara has won two national titles and consistently recruits some of the best women basketball players to one of the best universities in the world.
As a lifelong 49ers fan, I know how hard it is to replace a good coach. Losing Tara would be a terrible blow to the program and may mean NEVER getting the NCAA Final Four again.

to bye bye
If your comments are for real vs just getting folks juiced up, then you can serve as a poster child for my postulate that a certain segment of the population views the best team in pro football to be the Super Bowl winner, and the worst team the loser.

ummm... bye bye tara- tara led them to the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP!!! She is a great coach and i would be very dissapointed to see her go!!! Anways, thanks for a great season Cardinal!! I enjoyed watching all of you play and look forward to next year!!! And Candice- you are truly amazing- you led Stanford back to the Final Four (with the help of some other great players: JJ, Jayne, Ros, Kayla, Jillian, etc.) and nobody can take that away from you, not even Tennesse!!! The mark you left on Stanford basketball history far surpasses winning a national title. Your enthusiasm, effort, and impact on others around you is amazing, not to mention your amazing basketball skills. We love you!!!
