But the majority of my Cincinnati friends who are diehard sports fans are UC fans. None of them remember it either. If it had actually happened, I think they would have known. I don't know what the hell he's talking about. Unless it happened in the early 90s in one of the games that was only on local television, I don't see how this could have happened and had so few people know about it.
    I have attended many a UC-XU basketball game over the past decades going back as far as when Joe Pangrazio chased Raleigh Wynn with a crutch that the former had grabbed from a disabled fan. I also heard the “UC sucks” echo through the cavernous Gardens during the pre-anthem silence before the 1968 game.

    As others have alluded, the series has seen some outbursts. However, there is a reason no one has never heard this allegation before yesterday. It simply didn’t happen.

    This phallusy must be put to rest

    I've got 35-40 years of attending nearly every XU game . . . never saw one thrown, never heard of this . . . maybe a random student did something like this but when he says the nuns did it . . . all I can think is he's lost his mind.

    That said, birds of a feather flock together . . . so maybe those dildos found him on their own.

He said, 'They didn't do that. The nuns wouldn't do that. They wouldn't allow that.' She said, 'Well, where do you think they came from? You think I carry these around?'"

    One dildo was thrown at a Bills game and it is still talked about. Yet enough to fill a purse were thrown at the Crosstown shootout and not one person remembers it.
    The nuns threw rubber penises at Bob Huggins and UC.

    That is QUITE a sentence!!!

    Yunno, I kind of wish that had happened!! It's just too hilarious of a visual!!! It clearly didn't happen because there is no way that it could have, but as wrong as this would have been, it would have also been so hilarious that it would have likely become a global sensation that would have been talked about for a hundred years!!

    Feels like maybe I saw this in a Mel Brooks movie.

    I’d like to know the exact year that the object throwing occurred. Never heard a thing about that, nor anything said on TV and I have all the Crosstown Shootouts recorded.

    Thuggins claims 1) Dan Peters was his Assistant, 2)that Bilas was doing the game, but the only games at Xavier when Peters was Assistant was 1999 at the Gardens, 2001 in Cintas when UC won by 20 when David West got hurt and 2004 in the Lionel Chalmers game. If it was 2004, Bilas wasn’t in the booth. Len Elmore was the color guy. If it was 1999, Bilas didn’t do that game either. It was Dick Vitale as the color guy.
    I doubt that Huggy would be mad about a game that he won by 20. I don’t think Bilas did that game either. I call total BS. Guess BeelzeBob was drunk again.
    Further info that clarifies his BS is below that seems to narrow down the date of the event but nothing adds up as I detail above.

    From the Canton Repository from a few days ago:

    Maybe it was the same year Cronin's dad had blue paint dumped all over him? Or was it the year Louis Orr was flipping off the UC bench the whole game? Maybe the game JP went after Cronin? It's hard to keep the stories straight they make up the years they lose to deflect from the loss.

    I was with Louis Orr on the bench during the game he was alleged to be flipping off Bob Huggins. I don't know about Louis but the rest of our bench was flipping off Huggins during the game.

    At the start of a timeout, I see coach Huggins out of the corner of my eye approaching half court screaming obscenities. Our support staff returned fire, flipping birds, hurling our own obscenities in his direction. I don't recall our assistant coaches throwing up the middle finger, but I know for sure the managers, players, and trainers were more than glad to engage in the banter.

    We later found out Coach Gillen called Huggins a "fucking crybaby" and ran into our huddle before the timeout started. That's why Huggins was nearly at half court screaming at our bench. Gillen penned a hand written letter to Huggins apologizing to him a few days after the game. He was to blame for starting that situation, and the players finished it by winning the game. Huggins was too butthurt to shake hands, and the rest (as they say) is history.

    Huggs has quite the fascination with sex toys so maybe he could work his own NIL deal with Pure Romance or some place like it.

    Could we arrange for a case of them to be shipped to him before he has to pack up his office?

    Peters was at UC from 1999-2004

    When I heard the Huggins' story it did sound familiar to me, but I couldn't say when or where it happened.

    I doubt that the traditional Cincinnati media would focus on it at all. They would have wanted to focus on the game and this is just too much to explain for an audience that would include minors. But it might have come up on sports talk radio.

    If Peters' wife did collect them in her purse, she might have done it so quickly that a lot of people not near the bench didn't notice.
