Bob Huggins made a shocking announcement Monday night after a tough home loss at home against Villanova.  "American Idol is coming to town and I'm the next American Idol" said the now former West Virginia head coach. 

Some in Morgantown are shocked, others knew it was coming after Huggins surprisingly threw loose change at a Pittsburgh assistant coach last week just to take the microphone and sing a song.

Unfortunately his bird-like voice was subdued by stage fright; instead he did what he does best, yelled at people.  Huggins was hoping to use this opportunity to fine tune his slick vocals for American Idol. 

"That is where I belong, singing and dancing on stage" said Huggins, "Big East basketball is childsplay next to the excitement I feel in tight clothes with a microphone in my hands." 

"The next Final Four for me are the American Idol judges,"  said Huggins.

All I can say is good luck Huggie-Bear... your pipes have been caged up too long.  

Is Bob Huggins the next Susan Boyle?  You bet your ass he is.

Where can I comment?
