Just an FYI, in case anyone's been living in a cave: Don Read was named the Athletic Director at the University of Montana on May 27th. (I would have announced this here sooner but I was camping and then I got distracted ... you know ...)
You might be tempted to ask who Don Read is, but seriously, save the shreds of your Montana cred and don't. Don Read is only the winningest coach in Grizzly football history, and almost as beloved by Griz fans as Ronald Reagan was by conservatives. Read the guy's bio in the link ... and be in awe as I am.
No one really has a solid idea of how he'll do as an AD, but I, for one, won't understate the value of sentiment and emotion that hero worship can bring to a college program. With Read at the helm of UM athletics, Krystkowiak in charge of the Basketball team, and Bobby Hauck on the sidelines, the Bobcats are in seriously deep sh*t.
