Greetings, Mr. Huggins

Isn't it a strange coincidence that the Enquirer published a big story on its front page about the poor grades of UC's basketball players on the very same day Bob Huggins returns to Cincinnati with his new team? Isn't it also strange that Enquirer Publisher Margaret Buchanan is also on UC's board of trustees? The story doesn't seem to be based on any specific announcement from the NCAA or UC, so it could have been published on any day.
Upon dismissing Huggins, UC President Nancy Zimpher said she made “no apologies for setting high standards.”

That said, UC officials are reluctant to blame the current situation on past coaches or players.

“It’s the University of Cincinnati’s mess,” Hathaway said. “It’s not Bob Huggins’ mess. We’re responsible here.”

That's right -- it's not Huggins's fault. So why did the Enquirer publish the story this day? The Enquirer doesn't have the guts, within this story, to say whether it timed the publication of the story to coincide Huggins return. This is just slimy.
