Bob Huggins and Good Writing
|Huggs, in all his glory.|
Still, as much as I am inclined to NOT like Huggins, I absolutely love writer Joe Posnanski, who writes for Sports Illustrated and has an awesome blog. So when he posted a (typically) long post solely about "Huggs," I read it. And, like every piece of good writing, it made me question my beliefs on Huggins.
On the graduation rate, Posnanski writes this:
The zero graduation thing really chaps him — Huggins will insist that was a reflection of the flawed way the NCAA measures graduation rates, and he will quickly provide numerous statistics that show academic excellence among his players.I'll buy it, I guess. I'm not crazy about the guy still ...but I love writers who challenge my thoughts and make me wonder whether I've gotten it right.
On the other hand, I still think John Calipari is a twit.
