hmm,

interesting list of names of coaches they looked at. There are some names that are conspicuously absent, like Holland, Montgomery, etc.

Am I just reading too much into it?

I find it interesting that Pepperdine chose Asbury. I am not doubting his abilities; rather, with as many coaches as they have had in the past decade, they will seemingly not have Asbury that long, either, as he is 62. Asbury has already retired from coaching once. One would hope that they bring in an assistant that would be ready to take over in a couple years...(?)

Yeah, we're hoping we get Marty Wilson from Utah (former Pepp player and asst. coach) to be groomed as successor. If it weren't for Wilson or another worthy successor coming along, I wouldn't really care for this deal.

one of the things everybody has been tossing about lately is whether any of Pepperdine's Oregon recruits would be interested in staying closer to home and maybe turn purple! My original thought was that it wasn't likely, but it may be more so now...I think part of the reason Pep let them out of their LOI's so easily is that they just don't really want them now...with a roster of 10, and 9 are guards,----well I just think they now planning to use those scholarships for bigger bodies, even if they have to go the J.C. route. Walberg had what he thought he wanted, but most other coaches---and especially Asbury---will want some post players...r
