Good Story on Dan Monson

Here is a good story on our former basketball coach.  I don't think he gets enough credit for what he did for the program.  He came into virtually a no-win situation and made us a competitive team after the fiasco Clem Haskins left behind.  The fact that he even got us back to the Big Dance in 2005 was a feat in itself.

Obviously, we are in a better situation now with Tubby, but Monson got the program back on its feet after its darkest time (I do concede that we were horrible the year he was fired resigned).  He at least put it in position to be good enough for Tubby to take over.  In any event, I hope he does well with Long Beach State, and too bad we don't get to play them in the first round of the 76 Classic--although a possible matchup in the NCAA Tournament wouldn't be that far fetched.
