    I guess all the players that LEFT the team aren't the only ones leaving!
    I'M LOVIN' IT

      What is it with your obsession of his clothes?!

      Ronald McDonald isnt gonna be happy with you...stealing is " IM LOVIN' IT" slogan.

    Has nobody already seen the improvement of this team? Huggy had to take a step back and drop most of his older players to salvage this season. Team is playing well above my expectations with such a young group. Next year is the judgement year. That is when i will expect to see "the beef." This year though. Go support the team. Huggins has had them prepared every game it seems like to me. Its the coaches job to have the players prepared, not to win games. The players have to win themselves. I've personally been impressed with offensive improvement and hustle. Defense will be focused on this off season and team will be complete

    Lol fans dogging a team and coach whos 7-4 ...nearly 10-1 with 2 close losses to top 25 teams one being in the top 10. I get it we sucked last year, your complaing was heard so now its a new year were improved...Trust me I speak for Huggs, his players and real fans we wont miss you non believers if you go support another team and never comeback.

    The fans have no say over what Huggs does or says. However, we do have control over how well the team plays, because a rocking home venue is going to help any team. A huge part of home court advantage is the noise. Purdue is a very even matchup, and the fans need to do their part to help us over the top.
    The fans have no control over who Huggs recruits. But would you go to a school where nobody goes to the games?

      seriously, if this yr shows no improvement , don't we have to look at the situation ,and try to figure out if huggins is our man.... if he drops the ball again this yr, that will be four straight yrs. of subpar performance.

      do we just accept mediocrity and pay him 10000 per day,,,, this is sick

  • Barry

    Here come the "Huggins' Sucks" to defend their employer.
    Tell us again how Huggins has over 700 wins and if you don't think he is the greatest, then you are an Idiot, who lives with his Momma and you're a Marshall Troll.

    • William

      The same way WVU has ANY wins this year!
      Schedule cup-cake non-conf. games
      Any WVU fans PROUD of any wins they have this year!
      But wait, WVU fans EAT-IT-UP to beat these terrible teams then say their a great team
      Only way to have a winning record is to play bad teams
      Its a sad year to be a Mountaineer fan no matter where you may be!

  • Steve

    I guess you guys are the hall of shame coaches and that is why you have over 700 wins from your couch. It would be nice for the great recruits to see a full coliseum once in a while.

    • madhatter

      basically, it's what have you done for me lately,,,,
      great coach , yes,,, now,,, maybe not... seems our last 3 yrs. and tumbled down hill, and it all reflects on huggie,,,just how many yrs will this continue...

    • William

      ANY RECRUITS AT THERE, STAY FAR AWAY FROM WVU AND "SWEATSUIT" HUGGINS.
      HE WILL THROW YOU UNDER THE BUS ALL THE TIME AND TREAT YOU VERY BAD!
      HUGGINS PUTS ON A SHOW BECAUSE HE LOVES THE ATTENTION,
      HE HAS BEEN A EMBARRASSMENT

  • Matt

    How about you fans get over yourselves and be a FAN. Your mad cause Huggs is exactly right. Fans now only show up for a winning product, you aren't a fan. This is a very good team on its way to greatness. Get your a@@es to the coliseum bums. This coach and team deserves it.

  • john b

    I agree Huggins and all coaches need to worry about the results of their team and stop worrying about the attendance. In almost all cases if you have a winning program you have great attendance.

    • Pudge

      Any athletic team is to some extent an entertainment product. People will pay more and attend more for a quality product.

      You can't expect people to show up just because you want them to.

  • madhatter

    Huggie keeps ragin on ... attend wvu games
    Well, huggie my friend, if you hadn't run this team in the ground over the last 3 yrs. maybe someone would show up expecting a competitive team ... when was the last time we beat a ranked team? W's are what we expect, not moral victories. Moral victories don't get us in the big dance, so as the ole lady use to say , "show me the beef"
