WVU basketball 0111 Bob Huggins yells at official

Mountaineer coach Bob Huggins gets his point across to a game official.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (WV News) — Before we put the Bob Huggins controversy to bed, hopefully forever, there is one final point that must be made and involves the role played by talk show hosts and the stations that carry them in such incidents as this.

This one, of course, starts with WLW’s Bill Cunningham, who may or may not have led Huggins into the homophobic slurs he uttered and for which he has taken full responsibility and accepted the punishment issued by the school. He did, however, open the door to such a problem when he laughed and joked when Huggins made his “all those, the Catholics” slur.
