While I agree that Lute Olson filled the vacuum in Arizona that Ned Wulk left and had ASU hired someone that could recruit post-Ned Sean Elliot would probably have been a devil like Fat Lever, it took years for UofA to grow the type of support it has in basketball in Tucson and it will take us a similar amount of time, in my opinion. Lute was greatly helped by a comeback against ASU for the ages in one of his first games in Wells Fargo when his team came back from a nine-point deficit in the final minute of play in 1983 (I believe). That was when the people in Tucson started to believe they had something and guys like Sean Elliot gave them consideration. Had that not transpired, Lute may not have ended up any better than Bob Weinhauer, again my opinion.
