Bob Huggins wants basketball to be more like football.

Huggins suggests that college basketball follow college football’s lead and break Division I basketball into two divisions… but realizes what the sticking point to doing that is:

Huggins also took the chance to take a shot at the NCAA, saying the organization and the leagues keep all the money earned — leaving very little for the schools who are trying to tighten budgets as it is.

“The next thing is, the presidents need to get their head out of their (expletive) and figure out the NCAA is keeping all their money,” Huggins said Saturday before his team’s win over Seton Hall. “Between the NCAA and the conferences, they’re keeping all the money. You have all these presidents concerned about budgets, meantime they let two organizations steal all their money.”

Good luck with that crusade, coach.  That’s why you’ve got 347 teams eligible for the tourney in the first place.

    Bob, no stranger to power struggles, apparently forgot where his $3,000,000.00 ‘buyout’ for ‘retiring’ post-driving while allegedly faced came from. Some feel he may not have used any of that bonus money for an anger management course or for studying the intricacies of tournament basketball. There are unconfirmed reports that he was recently spotted auditing a Gross Anatomy class at the University of West Virginia School of Medicine, however.
