Anybody keeping an eye on Grand Canyon?

I'm betting that the BB coach we 'gave' to GCU is going to do better than the BB coach they 'gave' to us.

There is a vid of Pennell (http://www.gcu.edu/index.php?mact=News,cntnt01,detail,0&cntnt01articleid=39&cntnt01origid=15&cntnt01dateformat=%25b%20%25d%2C%20%25Y&cntnt01returnid=69) from his announcement day. He says he is going to concentrate on recruiting from the Phoenix area. Last year's roster shows that they already do that; from Community Colleges.

Their media prospectus is still last year's, as is their team roster, but their schedule is up for this year. Their conference includes several schools from Hawai'i, including BYU and Chaminade . Must make for a nice trip. (That is not a misprint - there is a BYU in Hawai'i too.

They must be getting serious about working for Div 1 status. They've brought Jerry Colangelo onto the board.

And I just found this write up on AZ Central (http://www.azcentral.com/sports/colleges/articles/2009/10/13/20091013grandcanyonbkc.html).
