Morgantown, West Virginia – During Bob Huggins’ teleconference today, he said a lot. He said that the Pitt game has been cancelled, he said the Mountaineers will be in the NCAA Tournament this season, he revealed his excitement about his players and the team, and he also claimed that he has indeed lost “some weight” during the pandemic.
How much weight is the question. Huggins claimed that my eyeball guess of “40-50 pounds” was not even close, saying, “I’ve lost some weight, but it’s not anywhere close to 40-50 pounds. It’s in the double-digits but it’s not that much. Someone took a picture of me and said that I lost 40-50 pounds. It’s not true, but if they want to spread rumors that’s fine.”
Huggins, 66, has suffered from obesity and heart-related issues for some time now, and a rededication to health and weight loss is an outstanding sign for West Virginia fans everywhere.
Weight Guess: 280 (down approximately 40 pounds from last season)
