    I'm surprised this hasn't been mentioned here. Probably because we all just found out what a pathetic scumbag our own coach was.

    CINCINNATI (AP) -- University of Cincinnati basketball coach Bob Huggins was scheduled to appear in court Friday following his arrest on charges he was driving drunk after visiting with a recruit in an eastside suburb.

    Huggins, 50, had trouble staying in his lane, had slurred speech and smelled of alcohol when he was pulled Tuesday over in the village of Fairfax, according to a police report.

    Neither Huggins nor the university had immediate comment. The school scheduled a news conference for Saturday morning with athletics director Bob Goin.

    Huggins' arrest is the latest black mark on a program that has been trying to get beyond a string of player arrests and NCAA rules violations in the 1990s.

    The police report said Huggins told the police officer, Sgt. J. Bronson, that he was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs. However, the police report said Huggins was unable to perform a field sobriety test, had slurred speech, red, watery eyes and staggered out of the car after he was stopped.

    The report said there was a strong odor of alcohol and vomit on the driver's side door.

    Huggins was arrested and brought to the village's police station, where he was picked up by his wife. He was scheduled to appear in the village's mayor court Friday evening.

    The report said Huggins was unable to give a complete breath test.

    The arrest comes less than two years since Huggins had a massive heart attack while recruiting in Pennsylvania. Huggins returned to coach the team in the 2002-03 season, not missing any time because of the heart attack.

    Would that exclude him from consideration as OSU's next coach?

    Here's to you Bob! :beer:

    Geiger didn't consider Huggins the first time and he wasn't going to consider him this time IMO.

    When officers pulled Huggins’ car over at 11:35 p.m. Tuesday night, he said, “Don’t do this to me,” but was cooperative, according to the report by Sgt. Jeff Bronson and two other officers.

    Officers said Huggins told them he was on his way home after talking to recruits and had a “couple” of beers. He denied that he was under the influence of alcohol.

    The report said Huggins was stopped because his car was straying out of its lane, and he sat at a light for 10 seconds after it turned green. Officers noticed vomit on the inside of the driver’s side door and reported a strong smell of alcohol, prompting them to administer the field test.

    Huggins had slurred speech and red, watery eyes, the report said. Officers said he “staggered” out of the car and couldn’t keep his balance during the sobriety test.

    Asked to recite the alphabet from the letter “E” through “P,” Huggins said, “E, F, G, H, I, K, L, N, Z,” according to the police report. Asked to count backward from 67 to 54, he counted from 62 to 52, the report said.

    Officers tried to give a breath analyzer test, but Huggins couldn’t complete it, the report said.

    "Look Who's Drunk"... What a coincidence, that's going to be the title of one the reality TV shows I'm gonna produce one of these days. That, and "Bitch, Make Me a Sandwich".

    found this on o-zone:


    "What time did you stop drinking?"
    Huggins: "No Sir"

    Sorry, Ash, you can never be too careful. I've seen people on other boards talk about him as a serious candidate.

    I thought I had put a winking smiley face at the end of the sentence. I guess I didn't. Just put the beer drinking smiley up.
