With the struggles of the WVU Men’s Basketball team, Bob Huggins is now the center of attention for Mountaineer Nation. Many fans have started to question if the 69-year old Half of Famer is still the man for the job in Morgantown – and rightfully so.
Over the last two seasons, the Mountaineers have struggled. The team has accumulated a 6-20 record in Big 12 play since the beginning of the 2021-22 season. Ask any fan in the Mountain State and they will tell you that’s simply not good enough.
I took it upon myself to run a poll on Twitter to see if fans still believe Huggins can win it all with West Virginia.
A total of 85 people cast their vote. It was a narrow race but the ultimate answer was “no,” fans do not believe Bob Huggins can still win a National Championship with the Mountaineers.
Be realistic and honest. Bob Huggins isn’t getting any younger. At 69-years old, do you still believe he can somehow find a way to take WVU to a National Championship? 🏀
I want to know your opinion! ⬇️

Here was the final count;
51.8% = NO
48.2% = YES
It’s a narrow margin but the fans who participated are obviously beginning to lose hope in Huggins. Could it be time for WVU to turn to a younger face to run the basketball program? Only time will tell.
Huggins isn’t getting any younger and the gauntlet isn’t getting any easier. It’s apparent that his championship window with the Mountaineers has passed.
