Before I get to the links, I want to take a minute to publicly thank Matt Daddy for his efforts at ATQ. Matt brought such a unique perspective to this place. Some would call him a troll; I would call him a devil's advocate with a very analytical mind who could argue anything with such fervor you would think he actually believed it. His pieces always made you think from a perspective you wouldn't think about, which is the mark of a good writer.
Then, of course, there was the podcast. 94 episodes. For three years, Matt and I spent most Tuesday nights recording sweet nothings into our microphones. Our wives didn't always enjoy losing us for a night each week, but having that opportunity to talk, be challenged, and just enjoy conversation with a friend was one of the best experiences I have had on this site. I know that we'll still be having those conversations, it's just that you won't be listening to them.
Matt has an awesome opportunity in his professional life, and for that I am thrilled for him. I want to wish...
Eh, who am I kidding. What a putz.
Onto the Quack:
- It was another good night for the baseball team, as they smacked Gonzaga, 14-5. They play at UW this weekend.
- Erick Dargan looks to fill a big void at safety.
- Assistant basketball coach Brian Fish was named the new head man at Montana State. Altman will need to replace one of his ace recruiters.
- Ernie Kent was officially introduced as WSU's new head coach.
