Bob “Huggy Bear” Huggins As Himself
Posted by Matt on January 31, 2008
Bob Huggins keeps Movie Reference Thursday rolling with this charming gold suit from last night as the man they’ve called “Huggy Bear” really does resemble the Huggy Bear:
Surprisingly enough, Huggins motivational tactics fell short as his West Virginia Mountaineers were trounced by the coach’s former team, the Cincinnati Bearcats, by a score of 39-62. The ‘Neers move to 15-6 on the season and fall to .500 (4-4) in Big East play on the same night Huggins’ more recent former team, the Kansas State Michael Beasleys, upset undefeated and #2 ranked Kansas at home for the first time in 24 years. I am sure Bob doesn’t regret leaving as West Virginia was his alma mater but it does go to show that a good coach and even just one solid recruiting class can resurrect a program.
And hopefully Bobby will continue to resurrect his 1970s wardrobe…
