Bob Huggins Gives Amazing Quote About Pitt Before Backyard Brawl

Morgantown, West Virginia – Today, legendary West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins spoke to WVU students and signed autographs at The Mountainlair ahead of tonight’s big matchup against the Pitt Panthers inside the Coliseum.

West Virginia (1-0) is coming off a 60-53 win in their season opener against Oakland.  Pitt, on the other hand, lost their opener at home in embarrassing fashion against Citadel, 78-63.

Tony Caridi asked Huggins about his thoughts on Pitt and he didn’t hold back one bit.  “I detest them,” Huggins said.  “I mean, really, it’s not that I don’t like them.  I really detest Pitt.”

Huggins continued:  “Their fans?  Same.  They’re crude.”

West Virginia holds a 99-88 all-time series record and has won the last four games against Pitt.  Tonight’s game starts at 8:30PM and will be televised live on ESPNU.

Let’s Go Mountainers!  Beat Pitt.
