Just heard Gottlieb on Mike and Mike tell a story about an official that once gave a rediculous technical to Eddie Sutton. This official was apparently notorius for holding grudges. This official was Dave Libbey . . . .



no wonder our refs are so bad!

Dave Libbey got beat up a lot growing up, and spent his entire adulthood trying to get back at all of his tormentors. He is everything most fans hate about officials. He belongs in the Billy Packer Hall of Fame for Those Who Make Basketball Less Fun.

Priceless


Gottlieb has told that story before, he really dislikes Libby. I suspect that Gottlieb's brother and father (both coaches) have some real life experience with Libby as well and harbor some resentment from their experiences too.

Gottlieb may be a bit of a tool sometimes - but he definitely has a passion for the game.

Not being an expert on the refereeing ability of Mr. Libbey Iíll make no comment in that regard, but he was brought in to improve the quality of WCC refs. Iíd challenge anyone who said he has had ANY success.

Having as poor a refereeing crew as the WCC and Pac 10 has is similar to having courts of improper dimensions, rims at inaccurate height, or balls that were improperly inflated. How can you expect to draw top talent, either coaches or players, when they are expected to hone their craft with inferior tools?

Itís ludicrous and just so disappointing for a league that is continually working on improvement. Come on WCC, stop giving it lip service and make a change.

Go ZAGS!
