    Are you too angling to be buried upside down ……….so your critics can ……………..?

    You might get some critics but I think you are right………..part of him you love………..part of him reflected poorly on IU and the program.

    I would have fired him for losing however ( also related to his demeanor) and would not have fired him for choking Neil Reed or asking to be called Mr Knight.

    This is my favorite Bob Knight quote anyway,

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q30BZhJJuuk

    Knight was a very good coach. He knew the game very well, including the rule book. Im not saying I agree with everything he did, but we still owe alot of our legacy to him

    Off subject but I just read the Demling link and he states that TC will not quit recruiting the 2009 class until he lands a big and projects it to be Muniru. If this pans out Demling says IU should have a top5 class for 2009.

    I would have choked Neal Reed also. However, Coach Knight should have put him over his knee and spanked him which, from what I understand, should have happened when he was in Jr.High. There are stories about Reed and his personality on and off the court that would have been an embarrasment to any basketball program. His foul mouth and arrogance around young kids and other adults would put even knight's language to shame. He was not in the typical mold of most of the players Knight recruited and made no effort to comply to any of the standards knight expected of his players

    I would never had fired Coach Knight striclky on his last years won/loss records. I think the I.U. administration may have been able to overlook his arrogance toward the press but his finall demise was due to his disrespect for Indiana University authority and and his fellow co-workers.

    I'm relatively sure we already have a top 5 class if i am not mistaken

    If we happen to get Cheek, that might even vault us to 2nd at least. If we get one of the center's we want, then that would probably put us at 3rd

    Probably right

    but Cheek does not necessarily make us a better team while a 7ft Muniru probably does. Either way TC has been amazing so far and I was not a fan when we were discussing new coaches.

    I am now a converted, born again, evangelical, holy rolling and snake handling supporter of TC

    Kinda funny how a Bob knight chat turned into a recruiting chat 🙂

    I do agree, TC is the best possible coach we could have gotten for this situation.
