    I have been critical of Coach Huggins in the past for his post-game interviews...this one impressed me. Good positive comments energize people and with this young team it is much needed. Not saying you can't criticize, just do it privately or with the team during practices. It's a proven method that anyone would appreciate.

    Last comment to reiterate a point I made on a previous post...in the past, I have critical of Coach Huggins' "chair-side manner"...Coach is much more relaxed with these young men and I believe that is a contributing factor in the success of this team.

    We had another great win last night. I don't have a crystal ball...if you do, please reply with winning Power Ball numbers...but I believe we can snag two more against ranked teams this year, i.e. Iowa State and Kansas on our home court. Wouldn't that be a beautiful thing. Good luck Mounties!

    It's an absolutely awesome day to be a Mountaineer...once, always, and wherever!

    Hope my fellow Mountaineers know how to dance because I believe we are going to the Big One! Lets pack the Coliseum to the brim Monday!

    If we can establish an inside game to go with our peremeter shooting then this team will contend for the Big 12 title next year. I really like Williams and with a year of experience and confidence he could provide the inside attack we need.

    Huggs fixed it!!!

    Phenomenal coach who made the right moves in the off season to make this team competitive in the no. 1 RPI conference in the country!

    That's what hall of fame coaches do!

    Just think what we may be saying this time next year. This team will still be there everyone who played last night will be there, this time next year should be awesome, you maybe singing country roads and saying a great day to be a Mountaineer, wow.. I am looking forward to the rest of this season and looking forward to next years team as well. Mountaineer nation are you ready ??

    Huggs has the full attention of his players and that didn't happen last year. The Freshmen are coming around and they will be tons better next year.

    This team is such a welcome change from last year. Big Dance or not the future is bright.

    Nothing like morning coffee and watching a HOF coach talk basketball.

    It's a great day to be a Mountaineer.
