Game Preview

After the last time these two teams faced off, Manhattan health officials sent in a biohazard cleaning crew to go over the innards of Bramlage Coliseum and make sure the general public would not be subject to further contamination. The good news is that the Octagon of Doom no longer has any trace of asbestos, possibly the only good to come out of that god awful game. Going into it, Bruce Weber said it was going to be a "bar room fight," and he was not wrong. Here's the highlights from a few weeks ago in January:

I'm still trying to figure out who would play what role here. Perhaps Huggs walked into the arena with a knife-wielding loafer and Bruce Weber wanted to protect the fine patrons of the Little Apple who were drinking and having a good time. Then again, I don't see Bob Huggins being an enemy of that behavior at all. If anything, Huggs is the patron saint of drinking and having a good time. Maybe Bruce Weber is just too stupid to have a good time and Bob "Dalton" Huggins had to step in a do a bit of coolin'. Let's dig deeper into the post-game interview:

Huggs is, for sure, the kind of guy that carries around both his medical history and Philosophy degree from NYU just in case he happens to pay a visit to the emergency room for some casual staplin'. I can also see him attributing a knife wound to "natural causes" and delivering a quote like "Pain don't hurt." Unless, of course, West Virginia is playing Marshall, because then the Mountaineers would be afraid to play. However, I don't see him saying something like "Nobody ever wins a fight." That's just nonsense. You play to win the game. We have to dig deeper to confirm this theory..... so let's see the highlights to the TCU overtime game:

Case closed. Bob Huggins is Dalton. I might call the Coliseum the Double Deuce from now on.

Prediction: WVU 77 KSU 65
