A couple weeks ago Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder sent a handwritten note to North Dakota State quarterback Brock Jensen, congratulating him on the victory against the defending Big 12 champions in week one. It was a reminder that good sportsmanship still exists in college football, and who better than Snyder to offer that important reminder? Fortunately it was not the last.
Montana head coach Mick Delaney sent a get-well note to Montana State quarterback Denarius McGhee, who suffered a separated shoulder in a September 7 game at SMU. Did I mention that Montana and Montana State are long-time bitter rivals at the FCS level? The two have been sparring on the football field dating back to 1897 and let’s be honest, there is not always a whole lot going on in the state of Montana so this football rivalry has been heated within the state for a long time now.
Montana State shared an image of their injured quarterback showing off his get-well note from their rival’s head coach, thanking Delaney for taking the time for exhibiting just one more moment of class that hopefully will have a ripple effect across the country.

McGhee may not be back for Montana State until October, so he should be available in plenty of time to take the field against Montana. The two kick off against each other on November 23 and the Big Sky championship could very well be on the line.
