    Re: Bobby Knight resigns from TT.

    Is his son taking over?

    If things don't work out for GMac, I would be all about getting the General in Ames.

    I'm pretty sure he is. I think TT named him the successor to Bobby.

    Re: **Bobby Knight resigns from TT.**

    Yeah, his son is taking over immediately, as was mentioned in the initial post. I wonder if there was a falling out, some health issues, or if his heart just isn't in it anymore. I remember earlier in the year him either missing a game or having to leave a game early because he didn't feel well, but I don't know if that was anything serious or not.

    a commentator for the UL/Marq game mentioned he didnt have the heart anymore. Maybe that and they just arent that good anymore.

    ripvdub pulled a fast one on me. Added the edit to show Pat was taking over.

    Re: **Bobby Knight resigns from TT.**

    That does seem quite out of the blue. I try to keep a close watch on the other teams in the league - as does most people here - and I didn't see this one during the season. I thought he might step aside at the end of the year but had no idea it would be so sudden.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    Agreed. I thought it would be this year or next. Friend and I were actually talking about that this weekend - discussing how far he'd push that career win record up there.

    I guess not any further (until he unretires ).

    Re: **Bobby Knight resigns from TT.**

    Wow, this is really suprising! I wonder if Pat Knight will pull a Keno next year and turn Tech into a powerhouse? (or at least a ranked team)
    Tech actually has some good young talent, and their young point guard, Robertson or something like that, was texas high school player of the year. He is a pretty good player.

    Re: **Bobby Knight resigns from TT.**

    For much of the year, people have been speculating that this would be it. Pat has been doing a lot of the post game media stuff, and the weekly B12 teleconference stuff this year.

    Please, lets not go there. Maybe the worst idea I've seen in some time.
