Dave Libbey Retires!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I saw this on the BRO message board first.

From the Seattle Times:

 

Libbey retires from officiating

Posted by Bob Condotta

So who knew we all were seeing some college basketball officiating history when the Huskies beat Mississippi State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Unknown to everyone at the time was that it turned out to be the last game worked by Dave Libbey, the official everyone seemed to love to hate.

David LIbbey was, IMO, the worst official I ever saw.

Just so you know, I'm not someone who complains about officiating. I argue with those that do. To me, officiating is just part of the game and bad officiating is part of the game.

But Dave Libbey wasn't just a bad official. He was a bad official who seemed to go out of his way to make sure the spotlight was on him when the game was on the line. An official with an ego is the worst thing in the world.

Good effin' riddance.

(The above story links to this story detailing some of the controversy about Libbey.)

As an aside, it's not often that the Pac 10 bloggers on this network agree about things. But it wouldn't surprise me at all to see similarly joyous posts about this news all around the network. Libbey was that bad.
