Huggins vs. Zimpher

Lets take a break from football for the moment. Quite frankly, I am done with the predicting, the outlandish claims, and the breaking news from camps about the third string TE spraining his pinky toe. I am ready for it to happen on the field. Wins, losses, who looks surprising and who laid the first week egg.

But lets turn our attention to this brew haha down in Cincinnati for a moment. Watching ESPN and all the media blitz that exists nowadays, I know most know the situation. Bob Huggins, the winningest coach in UC history, was fired (okay, he resigned, officially) on Wednesday by UC president, Nancy Zimpher.

Dont feel all sorry for Hugs, he landed softly with a $3 million parachute. At issue here a horse-and-cart question. Zimpher resigned Huggins due to his "out of control" handling of the basketball team and the university's perception in the national media due to the soft academic reputation that Hugs has with his players. (It is fair to note that UC has graduated 11 of their last 17 players.)

The issue puts forth the legitimate argument about winning versus graduating. I come short of congratulating Zimpher for her stand. College athletics is big business and winning trumps graduation. Simply put, I want to see who UC hires and how well that coach does. I have never heard of a coach saving his job by marching into the AD's office and talking up his high graduation rate.
