MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – With unresolved lords and unexplained breaks, West Virginia's basketball week was even weak at these crisis standards.
Staff started No. 13 publicizing preseason AP now flowing at No. 10 in the Big 12 sites, an acute lack that fans are checking out. It was impossible to overcome Boos during the latest 22-point loss, when the WVU got up in the second half and put Texas team as Phi Slamma Jamma.
As if a 2-9 series record did not let us know how to quench chemistry and leadership, a 48-hour surface news later, that Ahmad and Wesley Harris put out of the staff, they declared the basic status. As the season grows longer and longer, the roster gets shorter and shorter.
Shane Lyons's athletes director would not be out of what WVU and Ahmad finished doing, but because of Bob Huggins' law, Lyons is surrendering his coach's head is getting victories. When a few fans of the branch enter this season as evidence that the teenagers are not 65 years old – The kids are different today! You can not make a coach hard! – he leaves out of the grousing 2013, the last time West Virginia produces a lost record.
If you remember, during those 13-19 season, AD Oliver Luck announced the extension of a contract on Huggins. Lyons sound loudly as well as believing that the Oranges steer West Virginia from this base.
"It's obviously able to set the team – it's done before," Lyons said to me this week.
Famous fans recognize that Huggins who has earned the right to oversee rebuilding and, ultimately, he wrote his own events. For the small batch of recent non-governmental fans who lost the loss, Lyons was no more clear:
"The guy is a very popular hall coach, and I'm lucky to sit in this chair, unlike some AD that is not that coach quality. Huggins is a creative leader and one of the biggest coaches who ever played in college basketball. "
There is no need for a confidence vote in this case, but reminders of those who have too short memories to extend them back to the previous Sweet Sweet 16. Lyons reaches the NCAA 2017 game against top-seated Gonzaga, when the Rapporteurs came to the second place to reach the final. ("Play another couple and it's completely different – we're in Theite Eight or maybe the Final Fourth.") Last year, the West Virginia carries Villanova crown as a tough game as one.
Since there are four consecutive NCAA applications glossing Lyons over the current disaster. He was sitting a few feet from Huggins in Lubbock when the Mountains were defeated by 31. He went into the coach on flight families after another beat. In a circuit like this, Lyons is not evaluating the program most as "part of the support system." Sometimes there is a safe board, sometimes for inspiration, Lyons is always careful not over-running.
"Huggs does not miss very well," Lyons said. "I know our fans are disappointed – we all have – but there is no disappointment over Bob Huggins.
"We had these conversations, and all the Mountains Nation is disappointed. But he wants to fix it."
There is often a loss of losses. At 10-14 widely, West Virginia seems to have lost the second season in its 12-year tenancy, marking the coach quarter over 37 seasons.
Lyons mainly misses the struggle as a product of Sagaba Konate for the previous 16 games with knee injury and a litany of damaged parts by Beetle Bolden. There has been an appeal of new makers but more than a season that already has a complete failure (yet we still did not experience the Allen Fieldhouse office).
"The whole thing did not work as planned," Lyons said. "But my job is to understand that there are ways and a flow of talents and losses, especially in a basketball where couples could have a big impact."
The materials and their staff did not read the right on this year's roster. But when it comes to confidence, 855 databases have been established.
