    Huggins wasn't so bad when he first got to UC but then he started throwing all of his players under the bus after every loss and sometimes wins. That got old.
    Balls of Steele!!

    Post 1996 or so, Huggs went to around 7 years straight exiting the NCAA Tourney in first round losses.

    He did have a lot of early exits for a stretch but in 2000 they made it the 2nd round for sure where they then lost in the 2nd round without Kenyon Martin.

    I don't think they would have won it all like they all claim they would have but they probably make a deeper run with Martin.

    The number 1, 2 (UC), and 3 seeds in their region all lost in the 2nd round that year. #8 seed UNC came out of the region.

    They weren't even good enough to beat a terrible Xavier team that year. And they were going to win it all? Nah.

    Fixed that for you. Mick Cronin (during his UC career, at least) learned from the master.

    Speaking of our old Leprechaun pal, what's the consensus on Cronin now that he has a Final 4 at UCLA under his belt, and what not, I still think he's an average coach at best, still was shocked that UCLA hired him (though I guess it looks like a good hire now)... I don't know how to feel about him other than I dislike him, a lot.

    I don't care about Mick one way or the other. It appears he's a pretty good coach, when surrounded by talent. He's not a factor for X, so why even pay attention to him ?

    Haha great point, and honestly I don't pay attention to him which is why I was just kind of curious in general. I do think there's a possibility he becomes a factor for X in recruiting battles if Coach Miller elevates us to the spot where we all think he's going to, but that's just guessing on my behalf.
