The third scholarship could go to one of two point guards, neither of whom is eligible right now.
And none of that matters. Huggins' job is to keep his job. He knows a 13-19 record was not the way the job is to be done. Let's not ignore this, either: Huggins was bothered by his roster two seasons ago and often threatened changes. That didn't happen and the Mountaineers paid. Now you're seeing changes.
Gone are Jabarie Hinds, Aaron Brown, Volodymyr Gerun and, just this week, Keaton Miles. It's not fun seeing players you've tracked and cheered for a few years find or shown the door. To listen to the story as told by Miles, he learned his diminishing role would diminish further in the future and his minutes would go to new players.
That's a harsh reality, but that's reality. Huggins doesn't lie to his players, whether it's about their postseason chances or their playing time potential. Don't blame Miles, either, for finding greener grass.
What Huggins has done by releasing players and signing Remi Dibo from Casper College and Jonathan Holton from Palm Beach State, all he might do by adding Daxter Miles from Dunbar High or Shadell Millinghaus from Believe Prep, is what he thinks will help him win games. Results matter.
If that doesn't work, if they have trouble with grades or rules, well, then there's a discussion to have at that time. But not now.
Huggins said he was going to fix things and people cheered it. Those same people have to wait it out now.
Dana Holgorsen's offseason hasn't been quite the same with his football team, but he's added from parts unknown. Junior college transfers are not this common at WVU, not in the number that will arrive for the 2013 season. But if Huggins was tiring of the nice guys he said he could find in the library, Holgorsen was worn out by players who were compromised by a sense of entitlement and a lack of toughness.
The theory in the programs where it is practiced best is that junior college players have been hardened, take nothing for granted and play with a point to prove (See: Irvin, Bruce.). Holgorsen needed infusions for running back, receiver and pass rush and dropped junior college recruits there. Whether it works is an issue best discussed later.
What truly matters is both coaches have a job that insists they find and implement ways to keep their job.
