Does this mean the end of decent Zag coverage in the Seattle Times?

Like all good Zags he'll probably end up in Spokane.

Didn't realize he's been in the biz 45 years. My gosh.

I would imagine he could tell a few stories from over the years........

Only if they quit NCAA basketball coverage, unless they want to concentrate on the Cougs and Eastern!

the quality of his sports journalism, and even handedness to zags in Seattle area, will be hard to replace

My favorite sports writer for sure. I'll miss him, but it happens to all of us. Thanks for all those great years of supporting the Zags. Thanks for the great articles. Best of luck as you move into your next life.

A wonderful reporter. Always saw something others missed. No higher talent.

I will miss Bud for sure. I am surprised that he erroeneously reports that Gonzaga made only one tournament in the 20th century. Gonzaga made either 2 or 3, depending on whether you deem the new centry to begin in 2000 or 2001: 1995, 1999, 2000.

This should give him plenty of time to work on that Bravehearts sequel :D

I need a new Gonzaga book.

Bud not only saw the core of a story and its significance, he has a unique way of writing. To read his work was to hear him telling you a story. Charles Osgood always says, "I'll see you on the radio." With Bud Withers, I heard him on the printed page. I recently emailed him my compliments on his story on McClellan, and he responded. I would like to contact him to wish him well, but the only address I had was the newspaper. If someone has an email address for Bud, please post it or PM it to me so I can contact him. Thanks.
