: : This is similar to the FB coach hunt in that there was little leaked to the media and when they announced TG is was a complete surprise.
: : And in response to Walkerdevil, Ray would not take a back seat to anyone...including JC...nor would Crow put him in the spot. I do think that there might be some cross pollination if JC and Crow can get the details figured out so JC can move the national program to Tempe. Ray swings to big of a bat to be second fiddle to JC in this big of a hire.
: I hope it is a surprise hire that no one has any idea the Administration was talking to. If it is Capel then as a long time season ticket holder I will feel vindicated in what I said. It would indicate that Dr Crow and Anderson will do anything to get USA basketball here, including letting Jerry Colangelo decide who the new basketball coach is.
Well if it means getting USA basketball and a new basketball arena for both USA & ASU to play in it's a good deal. Have to hope Capel has learned from his last two (losing)seasons at ok and getting fired. Working under coach K is great and I'm sure he learned a lot but it's what you can do when you're not backed up by the Duke & coach K brand that will matter most.
