on the other hand

Does Bob Huggins get a bad rap?

Bob Huggins speaks in almost a whisper when he talks about the work he does in the community. "I just thought that's what everybody was supposed to do," Huggins said. "I thought you were supposed to give back to the community. I grew up like that."

Huggins has been one of the most active of this area's athletic celebrities when it comes to donating his time and fund-raising ability to local charitable causes. He began his fund-raising efforts by hosting the Bob Huggins Celebrity Golf Classic to benefit the Arthritis Foundation. He has raised an estimated $400,000 for that organization, according to Bill Mulvihill, senior associate athletic director at UC and a trustee emeritus of the Arthritis Foundation.

It was Mulvihill who first enlisted Huggins' help in raising money for arthritis research, which in turn got him involved in other community projects." He not only raised money," Mulvihill said, "he raised awareness of arthritis as a diseaseā€¦He's done a lot more than anybody would know."
