Always the Cardinal

Monty faces critical year across the bay from The Stanford Daily.

Every time I watch a Golden State Warriors’ basketball game, I get a slight chill up my spine — and not only because the Warriors have symbolized mediocrity for the last decade. (That just explains the nausea.) No, what makes me rub my eyes in disbelief is the sight of the pioneer of Stanford basketball, the man who made Maples rock, coaching a team across the bay with blue and gold team colors.
I guess I can't let go of my own vision of Mike Montgomery: the former Stanford coach roaming the bench at an intimate, yet ear-shattering Maples Pavilion, barking at the referees with a graceful fury and kicking the advertisement panel affixed to the scorer’s table.
