    Bobby Knight and the team from the SEC

    Knight, the former Indiana and Texas Tech coach turned ESPN analyst, has refused for years to call Kentucky by its name. Now, even as a media professional, Knight won’t bend.

    On Saturday, while on air, he referred to the No. 1 seed in the NCAA basketball tournament as the “team from the SEC,” according to tweets from The Courier-Journal’s Kentucky beat writer, Kyle Tucker and Kentucky Sports Radio’s Matt Jones.

    Re: Bobby Knight and the team from the SEC

    Bobby Knight is so awesome. He is quickly becoming my favorite basketball guru. He says what is on his mind, and he doesn't care what people think. He is like your friends hilarious grandfather who says whatever he wants because he has gotten to that age where he stops caring what people think.

    Good for Coach Knight, maybe the only person that works for that organization that isn't a complete joke.

    I don't think he's ever cared what people think.

    When Kentucky is eventually forced to vacate all of their wins from this year do we add 2012 to the Sweet 16 banner at Hilton? Go Cyclones!

    Wonder who he will cheer for in the Kentucky/Indiana game?

    Re: Bobby Knight and the team from the SEC

    He knows how crooked Calipari is and refuses to acknowledge him in any way. He won't mention Anthony Davis as potential player of the year either...must believe he's there only from crooked means, hence isn't an amateur....
