Surely someone has made this comparison by now, but Bob Huggins is Rocky from “Christmas Vacation” grown up, right?
Anyways, Huggy Bear was in rare form after West Virginia’s win last night. Sleepy Huggy seemed irked that Kentucky had a day and a half head start on preparing for Thursday’s game.
“Cal’s probably already been practicing. I mean, they let them play on Thursday at whatever, noon or whatever he’s had a day and a half already,” Huggins said. “And I’m not doing anything until tomorrow morning. I’m tired. I’m going to get a break.”
Priorities, man. After he gets some sleep, will Huggins be ready for the challenge of playing the number one team in the country? “Well, 36 people haven’t been. I don’t know,” Huggins said. “We’re going to have fun trying.”
Is his group intimidated? “No. I mean, I wish I could sit here and tell you we’re definitely going to win,” Huggins said. “I can’t do that. But I can tell you that we’re not going to be scared.”
