Replacing Huggins in Cincy will be rough

Nearly impossible.

That describes the task awaiting the next head basketball coach at Cincinnati, because regardless of what you may think of Bob Huggins, he has cast a long shadow over the Bearcats' program since 1990.

Huggins is one of a handful of coaches in college basketball who wins because of the "force of his personality." In other words, his intensity rubs off on the entire program. His teams would find a way to win, whether they were at Cincinnati or the University of Uzbekistan.
