    Bob Knight Comments

    I was listening to the "Mike and Mike" show this morning where they had Bob Knight on discussing the NCAA tournament. One of the Mikes then made a comment about how tough the Big 10 is this year from top to bottom. Bob Knight then proceeded to say that the Big 10 is just very "even" from top to bottom, then proceeded to say that there is a difference between a conference being really good overall and it being very even. Then to hit home his comment on the Big 10 being even, he contrasted it to the Big 12 where he said that he hasn't seen two better teams in the country than Kansas and Missouri, and they are both in the same conference.

    There was no doubt from his wording that he was playing down the Big 10 and propping up the Big 12. He went even deeper into it too than just this, for example, by callling teams like Michigan State and Ohio State pretty good, but not elite teams.

    I know Bob Knight did coach in the Big 12, but don't you think he would still be somewhat of a Big 10 homer?

    Hes not a homer at all. If the Big 12 sucked, he would say the Big 12 sucked. He would talk his own teams down if they sucked. The dude gave back his salary one year because he thought he sucked.

    Ohio State is a pretty good team. MSU and Michigan aren't that great though. I don't think Michigan could beat us now. We are so much better than when we played them.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Bob Knight Comments

    I really like Bobby Knight and can understand why he and Johny Orr got along so well.

    Obviously he had some anger issues and it was really unfortunate Indiana had to run him out of town. Great, great basketball mind however and I really enjoy it when he announces games on ESPN(so much smarter than Dick Vitale).

    One of the cooler things I've ever seen was when Coach K asked him to do is induction into the Basketball hall of farme. They had been having a few issues prior to that, but Coach Knight meant so much to Coach K that he wanted him do it and Bobby was extremely eloquent in his speech.

    I'd say his comments are right on. Not sure if I'd put KU and MU on such a pedestal, but the Big 10 has seemed extremely ordinary this year to me.

    Robert Montgomery Knight doesn't give a **** what anyone thinks about anything. He has no reason to shine anyone on...and doesn't. I'd love to hear his takes on some of Dougie G.'s "analysis".

    Finally someone telling it like it is as opposed to pushing their agenda out there. I always loved Bobby Knight.

    He can be a jerk but he can also be the nicest, most respectful individual in the world. Just cause he acted like an *** clown on the sidelines doesn't mean he is a jerk.

    I think MSU was the best team in that conference and a legit title contender until Dawson tore his ACL
