SI’s Dan Wetzel and Pat Forde discuss the weekend’s huge college athletics news after West Virginia basketball coach Bob Huggins resigned from his role after being arrested for drunk driving at Pittsburgh

Already walking on thin ice after an unresponsive radio appearance this spring, Bob Huggins was arrested on Saturday night after apparently blowing a .210 on a breathalyzer. West Virginia allowed Huggins to retire in lieu of an immediate dismissal, but the Hall of Fame coach will nonetheless leave the Mountaineers on a low note.

San Diego State has entered a difficult situation with its plan to leave the Mountain West Conference. The school requested a one-month extension to avoid an approximately $17 million increase in buyout money that would be owed to Mountain West. SDSU’s final decision still seems to hinge on the Pac-12 partners for their next media deal.

Maryland football coach Mike Locksley spoke about the new facility that was completed in College Park, Maryland. Locksley said athletes no longer favored elite facilities and preferred accepting payments rather than industry-standard locker rooms and training areas.

The Michigan Wolverines have a big season ahead of them, and with valuable starters returning to the team, some are ranking them high heading into the season. Pat and Dan discuss whether or not Michigan should be given the top seeding in a tough Big Ten conference in 2023.

In weird news, a Kentucky resident had a legendary obituary written about him, non-NCAA championships continue to amaze, and we get an update on the Jell-O Shooting Contest taking place in the College Baseball World Series.
