    Someone must've slipped acid or spanish fly in the watercooler over there. The way they're spasming over Nutjob Knight takes the red right outta my hair.

    "Bobby Knight sets an excellent example for other coaches to follow..." "He is a man that young people can look up to..." "If I had a 17-year-old son playing basketball, I'd send him to Bobby Knight, because I know he'd get a great education, and come out a stronger man because of Coach Knight..."

    This is the same whacko that throws chairs and throws temper tantrums that would make Bobby McEnroe blush. A man that is not known for his ability to control his mouth or his hands. The same twit who chokes young guys like Homer chokes Bart. Someone I wouldn't trust alone with a dead horse, let alone one of my kids.

    I don't give a rat's hairy arse if he's won 879 gazillion games. He could shove Bob Stoops out of the way of a drunk driver and become a speed bump on Gray and University, and I'd still think he was more worthless than Viagra pill at an abstinence camp.

    We now return you to your regular programming.

    P.S. Whover negged me for this post...THANK YOU for informing me I have no clue. May I call upon you to make my major life decisions? I simply don't know how I've managed 47 years without your expert guidance. Haw-Haw.

    But how do you really feel?

    Knight is a bully, period. He graduates his players and wins games, so therefore, many defend him. And Knight certainly DOES deserve credit-- I mean, becoming the all-time winningest coach is a pretty big deal.

    However, Knight hasn't won much of anything since the early 90's, yet his bullying has seemingly gotten worse.

    I don't even like the way he's handling the praise he's getting right now. I appreciate humilty, but he's acting almost annoyed by the questions...on several occasions, I've heard him cut off reporter's in the middle of a "record" question. He doesn't handle anything with tact. And he just seems so darn angry all the time.

    Bob Kinight is quite simply a classic bully. A control freak. Me = Not a fan.

    I don't like him either

    He has been coach of two different teams (in my lifetime)...both are which rivals of my 2 favorite teams. Plus he is a bully...Bobby "The gentleman" Knight.;)
    I agree with OUSKINS.

    Me= Not a fan.

    Bob Knight, successful coach for decades.

    Bob Knight, jackass for life.

    Wow, it was easy to separate those two aspects of Knight. I don't know why ESPN can't do it.

    I suppose if you are feeling rather masochistic or somewhat suicidal you would do well to play ball for BK or go on a weekend hunting trip with him. :rolleyes:
