COLUMBUS, Ohio -- West Virginia basketball coach Bob Huggins apparently won't be sending Jay Bilas a Christmas card this year.
Bilas, the ESPN hoops analyst and former Duke University player, was among the many who predicted the 12th-seeded University at Buffalo would defeat fifth-seeded West Virginia.
"I'm going to have really lost my mind when I start paying attention to what Jay Bilas and those people say," Huggins said Friday after West Virginia beat UB, 68-62, here in Nationwide Arena. "I mean, Jay always does those tweets, 'Got to go to work.' I'm trying to wonder what that is.
"I don't pay any attention to those guys. Honestly, if they knew everything, they'd probably have a pretty good coaching job, making a lot more money than they're making, sitting there in a studio. So we don't pay any attention to that."
Bilas was an assistant under Mike Krzyzewski when UB coach Bobby Hurley played at Duke.
Huggins was reminded President Obama also picked UB to upset West Virginia.
Huggins was asked if he cared what the Commander in Chief thinks.
"Absolutely not," Huggins replied.
