    Bill,
    Get a life,,,the kid made a mistake,,,and he plays great ball for WVU, with heart and spirit!! I guess you have never made a mistake in your life~!

  • bill

    Where did he get the booze, did he buy it or did someoe give it to him ?

  • Shadow

    I wonder when and how they calibrate the meter? Before and after the test with a certified volume of alcohol tainted air? I doubt it! Just toss it in the back of the cruiser. Just because the meter say it doesn't mean it so.

    Hey Bill and William,

    Wow you want to pull his scholie and prevent the kid from continuing his education for maybe 3 beers in an hour? Let me give you an example of some alcohol problems and see what your opinion is:

    A young man becomes impaired from alcohol and steals holiday ornaments, then a few years later he gets a DUI. Next the guy takes his 16 year old brother out drinking, on way home drunk driving he runs over a garbage can and drives drunk all the way home with the garbage can under the vehicle.

    So, should you guy I described above lost his scholarship, fired from his job or inprisoned???

    • bill

      "Cane" him in the town square, would be a fit punishment.

    I still haven't figured out why you can get your life ended defending your Country at 18 but you can't drink beer until you are 21. We have a bunch of idiots making laws. All the idiots have done is create a lot of criminals and made money for the lawyers and cities. And I do condemn DUI but I don't the facts or science behind the .08 limit.

    .085 on a Saturday night in Morgantown. The kid should get an award for moderation.
    Lighten up everyone.

  • Kevin H

    wow .085,, was is that 3 beers?

    • bill

      What if he would have wrecked and hurt or killed a member of your family?, He messed up and was arrested for DUI,but "Huggs will fix it"

      • Moon

        That would be tragic. But the fact is that this athlete, with great reflexes and two beers in his system is probably less likely to get into an accident than you are sober. Assuming you are 65 and have poor vision and reflexes.

  • William Jr.

    William, you are spot on!

  • William

    "Sweatsuit" Huggins is a great role model to be around!
    He is a terrible coach, and I would never let my kid anywhere close to this guy.
    Why would any WVU fan EVER support Huggins of Holgerson?
    These two are a mess, just look at their record.
    This is what happens when you hire leaders with NO CLASS & POOR CHARACTER!

    When I was growing up the legal age was 18 .So I personally don't have a problem with drinking. But shouldn't drive and drink.no excuses

  • Gary Karstens

    Kinda funny. If it was an athlete at another school, then some of the same people who post comments shoot arrows. But funny when it is a WVU student-athlete how it is spun.

    • bill

      Now we know why, he could'nt run the floor, play defense, nor shoot with consistaincy. If he wants to drink allow him to transfer to a D3 school . I hear our correctional institutions have good basketball teams and are filled with people "just being kids."

      • Big Jim slide

        Bill, dude come on the kid was less than .10 bac at 1:30 am. If you think college athletes should have no social life then you should just watch nba ball. 1 beer puts a person at .04 bac level So he just had 2 or 3 beers. I bet he drives better with 4 beers in his system than your jack legged butt does sober

    Morgantown is a target-rich environment for DUI's and the police are all over the place taking full advantage of unlimited opportunities.

        I agree with you about Huggins, but Holgerson ,the jury is still out on him, I think he will turn it around this year. Keep up the good work on Huggins.

      • Bob Smithers

        What kids of yours Billy boy.You should be neutered and forbidden from reproducing anyway.That way your gene pool can not contaminate the rest of the world.

  • pghmountaineer

    I think once Huggs has a one on one discussion with him things will be ok and they can move on from there.

    • bill

      I would like to hear that conversation, one drunk to another.

      • bill

        Huggs is a real role model when it comes to drinking.

      • Mister Man

        So, you're a drunk?

        • bill

          Never touch the stuff.......

          • squad

            i'm sure..

            you're one of those people who knows what's wrong and its everyone else, right?

  • JJ

    The captain (huggs) has lost control of his ship.

    • SCOTT

      Yes, thats obviously it....I mean who has ever heard of a 19 year old getting a DUI....Obviously Bob has lost control......
