    different angle of last play vs WVU cylcones.tv highlight

    Just saw the end of our WVU from a different angle on the cyclones.tv highlights (you don't even have to log in to watch highlights).

    I've probably never seen a coach complain more over nothing than Huggies did. Maybe that UNLV football coach, but I think he actually had more reason than Huggies here. The cyclones.tv angle is from the floor and Babb is just standing there the whole time with his arms in the air. It's Babb standing straight up with his arms in the air, the WVU player jumps into him a little bit creating some contact, then the WVU player just falls down.

    If there's any WVU fans on here please watch:

    Great post except for saying what you did about the UNLV football coach. At least a foul is a judgement call. Every play is reviewed in college football and it took the replay booth no time at all to see the UNLV player was out-of-bounds.

    West Virginia wanted a foul because they felt babb stuck his right knee out to slow the West Virginia player. It didn't have anything to do with him being straight up. I've watched it many times I don't see much there to be called a foul.

    It is clear Babb didn't do anything and Huggies was ******** about nothing. Huggies is already climbing my list of hated coaches.

    Thanks for posting.

    As it happened in real time I didn't think it was even close to being a foul on Babb, and this video only reinforces that. I had no idea why Huggins went ballistic? I think deep down he knew it wasn't a foul, but the frustration of losing after making a great comeback was too much to bear at that point.

    Babb played that perfectly. He just stood his ground with his hands up in the air and never even made an attempt to reach. In fact, if Babb had fallen down in that situation, it would have been a charge, no question. Babb had established his ground... the WV player was running into him.

    This. And flip it around: If the situation was reversed and a foul had been called on a WV player for doing exactly what Babb did, you know he'd have had another heart attack.
