I just started reading Cactus Ranch message board and have to say the posts are much better than what I saw on Devils Digest when it existed. I have to agree that I was not happy with how the coaching search was handled by Ray Anderson. First off the idea of hiring Jeff Capel really bothered me. Ask any Oklahoma basketball fan (there aren't many) and they will expand on their experience with that guy. Second he's a North Carolina guy and it sounds like he had no interest in going west from the start. My initial thought on firing Herb Sendek was they better have a better option in mind for paying Herb not to coach for 2 seasons. Was Herb boring? Yes. Did the recruiting lack at times? Yes. However Herb definitely left the program in a much better state than where it was found from Rob Evans. Instead of getting transfers from UC Davis (Chad Goldstein) we got guys like Carrick Felix. With Bobby Hurley I hope he turns out to be what everybody thinks he can be at ASU. I read the miracle of St. Anthony and have a ton of respect for him and his father. Can he recruit out west? Can he fire up an apathetic fan base in a professional sports town? I don't know. My hope is that ASU fans attend games in greater numbers and give coach Hurley a fighting chance.
The 2 coaches I would have been interested in looking at initially was Rice at Boise States, the guy at Irvine, and Eustachy at Colorado State. Since his boozing episode the guys done a pretty good job at Southern Miss and CSU.
