The joke was that only Bob Huggins could get a DUI and end up making an extra $3 million dollars because of it.

    As for the rest of your post, I'm glad to hear that your family members got through it. I personally made a decision a long time ago to never condemn anyone who has a substance abuse problem no matter how much or how little I like them. I've had my own issues and made my own bad choices, and to do so would be hypocritical. I get that a lot of people will chime in, and I suppose it's fair game since he is a public figure, and what does it really matter what people say anyway?? I do think alcohol/substance abuse is more rampant in college athletics, and in college coaching in particular, than what most people realize. I don't really feel sorry for him, but I do kind of hope that he realizes he's actually lucky. He's still got a chance to get over this and probably feel better about his life once he does. Sometimes what feels like the most embarrassing and humiliating and scary experiences in the moment turns out to feel like one of the luckiest things you've ever experienced when you look back on it and see how much better your life has been since then. And, it's also better to have your career crash and burn at 69 than at 29.
    Thanks Brew. At least there was an attempt to hold him accountable by a job loss that a place where he was an icon, he apparently loved and could stay for his entire career. Zimpher tried, but like I said, Thuggs just moved on.
    I appreciate your thoughts about my family members. Every day is a new day and it’s one day at a time, but they have support and realize what’s at stake. Chuggs apparently never did, until now.

    This isn’t JUST about Bobs alcohol problem. If not for the radio incident just 6 weeks ago, Bob probably survives this DUI.

    Huggins is a scumbag. He’s also an alcoholic. One of those is about character and the other is a disease.

    Huggins gets no sympathy because of his character. I’m spite of his disease

    It wasnít always easy but after a couple of family interventions, they realized they needed help. One relapsed, but got back on track. They all hit the meetings.
    Thuggins isnít that. He is a guy who thinks heís Superman, can flaunt any rules- whether they be with alcohol, NCAA rules, academic rules, university rules, health rule advisories, marital rules, whatever- and get away with no consequences and with no regard for anyone else. He got a DUI once in Cincy, how many more unknown ones in Morgantown and hasnít changed. He had a heart attack and within a year was as bloated as before.
    He got held accountable once by Nancy Zimpher, and she was pilloried for trying to teach him a lesson, but ol Huggs just kept right along.
    Sorry. No sympathy for someone who made little or no effort to change unlike those in my family.
    Zero props for being forced to accept reality and punishment because he was too full of hubris to change even after all the warnings.
    Bye Bye.

    Just like death and taxes there is one other certainty in life........you can always count on MOR to double down on dumb. Poor guy just can't seem to get out of his own way.

    Master, come clean. How many jilted lovers did you have back in the day? Clearly Final4 has to be one.

    Not telling, but I’ll tell you that I ignored them too.
    Too bad for them that they were too weak to take it. ;-)

    Please some desperate program hire Bob Huggins and do it all again. He cannot stay out of the game completely. He completes us. Does Dayton need a coach?

    If Wichita State could have held out just a little bit longer on hiring a coach...
