No no. I want WVU to do well. Huggins was at K state for a year and that place turned into a Top 25 program.

I respect him.

Fact is he has as much to do with our program crashing than anybody. IF he conducted himself like a normal person he wouldnt be at WVU right now.

Sorry. This is old. I am rooting for Huggs to do well but im sorry you can't argue he dug his own grave.
When did that DUI occur? When did he "resign" from UC? Over a year later, so no, that DUI is not the reason he was fired. It was because he was bigger than that witch that ran the school. And as far as WVU, if Butler doesn't take those shots, somebody else will, plus pretty sure we were tied, so even if he missed that doesn't mean they were gonna lose, as is the same with about 3 of the other games he made shots in. But again, lets just win the NIT.

I respected Huggs as a basketball coach, and I see both sides as to his departure. One thing I didn't care for, was how UC treated Kennedy. Should've kept him on, IMO.

Ebanks will probably declare for the NBA, WVU will be middle of the Big East pack next year.

Butler does not coach the team, design the plays or make the decisions. He is told what to do and coached. Stop the crack!

Your right. I am saying that without the DUI he would not have been forced to resign. Also the lack of graduating hurt his chances too. The big dogs thought he was hurting our image. Not sure if I agree but he did a lot that gave the university that chance to fire him.

We all know the graduating statistics were skewed.

Also it was not the big dogs. It was the chi wow wow.

Huggins was a total embarrassment to the University. He had to go.

Butler made the shots. If he misses 6 more losses. When filling out your NCAA Tourney brackets do not pick WVU to get past the second round.
