West Virgina Leaves Every Child Behind
There’s something to be said about striving for a perfect graduation rate. It appears that West Virginia has it backwards and is shooting for a graduation rate of zero percent. Maybe the signs were in the air when West Virginia players wore their misspelled NIT championship shirts.
Bob Huggins is leaving Kansas State to become the new coach of West Virginia after John Beilein left to take the Michigan job.
It’s obvious that West Virginia has no interest in its basketball players graduating from college. The incarceration and recidivism rates will surely increase and put WVU at #1 in the AP and ESPN/USA Today polls if those are taken into account.
As one might imagine, Kansas State isn’t very happy with Huggy.
“I asked him, ‘Bob, do you think leaving now is the right thing to do?’ And he said, ‘No,”‘ athletic director Tim Weiser said at a news conference. “Then I said, ‘How many times in your life have you known what the right thing is to do and not done it?’ And he said, ‘Never.”‘
Why don’t I believe him? That would be like driving under the influence when you know you shouldn’t. Huggy would never do that.
