Welcome, By-Godders, to The Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU’s best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor, and daily distractions.
West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame on Saturday night.
The lifelong Mountaineer was very deserving of the honor. Huggins has 916 victories in 40 seasons of coaching, with 326 being won during his 15 years at WVU. He also has two Final Four appearances from his 25 trips to the NCAA Tournament.
Just as important as his on-court accomplishments, “Huggy Bear” has made a tremendous impact in the lives of his players, fellow coaches, and WVU fans. His passion and work ethic truly embody what it means to be a Mountaineer, and he is undoubtedly one of the most important figures in the history of WVU athletics.
West Virginia football coach Neal Brown is officially on the hot seat. Brown’s superiors in the athletic department are waiting to see how the 2022 season plays out, but has Neal lost the trust of Mountaineer fans?
