could it be this year’s class? 2018 class nominee list out. Huggs is a first time nominee.
He deserves it.
It certainly about time… He is most deserving… 800+wins and 30+years as a HC, you’d think that he is a shoe-in, first ballot… Another great honor for WVU B-Ball…
The list of candidates is outstanding. And Huggs indeed deserves it. I hope the “lack” of a national title doesn’t hurt him in the eyes of some, but that’s a yardstick that some voters apply. I think it might be tough for him to get in on the go-round, but again, there’s no doubt in my mind at all that he is a Hall of Famer.
If a NC were the yardstick, the list would be much smaller.
Huggs only active coach to be nominated.
Naismith HOF announces eligible candidates for 2018 class and it includes six college coaches, one active: West Virginia's Bob Huggins. The retired coaches are: Gene Keady, Lefty Driesell, Steve Fisher, Bo Ryan and Eddie Sutton. HOF class will be announced at Final Four.

Eddie Sutton should be a lock.
Does Huggs deserve to be in the Hall of Fame this year?
Does a hobby horse have a wooden leg?
Note:. That last comment made a bit more sense when I was a kid in the 1940s…
Id say he gets in. The WV experience has softened his image a bit and a final four so quickly after the school going 59 years since appearing opened some eyes that may have been otheriwse closed to Huggs. First ballot he gets in.
Inducted on the first ballot is.tough. hope it happens
