Re: UC Basketball right around the corner!
Opinions are opinions and I respect yours, although I disagree with the loyal servants part. Bob Huggins is no servant, no coach at that level is. Eddie Robinson was a loyal servant, Bob Huggins is not. That's not the nature of the business, and it's a business first and foremost. Bob Huggins is loyal to himself, like many business people are. I'm not judging him on that, but calling him a loyal servant to anyone but himself would get quite a laugh in Manhattan, Kansas...don't you think?
Anyone who's afraid to upset the everyday fan is doomed to fail. A school administration only needs to appeal to the financial boosters, and a small minority at that. As far as former players go, the school really doesn't owe them anything. They got an opportunity for a free education (or a free place to live for a while...not going to single UC out on that, though, it's a problem across the board), and many of them used their time on campus under Huggins as a springboard to a professional basketball career. From all I've heard Huggins is loyal to his former players (at UC, not K-State), which I think is great. If they choose to disassociate with the school because of the situation, that's their choice.
