When Bob Huggins made the quick walk from car to plane and jetted off, the vitriol was rampant. Kansas State fans were hurt, left holding "Huggieville" shirts - until they burned them or sent them to Morgantown for homeless people to wear.
Since then, however, Mike Beasley happened. Jacob Pullen happened. An Elite Eight happened. And, Frank Martin's 100 wins have happened. All of those things combined into a salve and have soothed the bitterness, hate and resentment.
In a quick Twitter poll, I asked what K-State fans' thoughts were concerning Huggins these days. If the nearly 70 responses are any indication of the larger fan base, and I think they are, the break down is roughly 95 percent of people see Huggins as something between a "savior" and "godfather" (both of which were used to describe him), four percent are alright with how things turned out for both sides and mostly are ready to quit talking about Huggins/KSU, and a lone response brought up a point that I think bears remembering (unless you're a positive revisionist only...then you should stop here...)
