    bobby knight

    "We've gotten into this situation where integrity is really lacking and that's why I'm glad I'm not coaching," he said. "You see we've got a coach at Kentucky who put two schools on probation and he's still coaching. I really don't understand that"

    Ex-Hoosiers coach Bob Knight speaks at the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame - ESPN

    Personally I love how honest he is. and is he wrong?? Calipari is a dirtbag and the whole world knows it, yet he's making huge money at Kentucky. What's your opinion on Knight (who's now a member of the media) and his take on calipari or the general lack of integrity in college basketball.

    Let's just say that I don't think that Bobby did anything that would violate NCAA rules like Calapari (yes, yes - I know his issues at Indiana), and I credit him for not brown-nosing to a major coach.

    But he's most definitely NOT a person I would tell my kid "you should look up to a person like this".

    This is big news! Or at least it was when it happened, a week ago.

    would you send your kid to play for bobby knight? I don't think I would think twice about it. Dude is one of the most brilliant basketball minds in our lifetime, and although he has made some unfortunate choices at times any kid that has played for him will tell you that they're better for it. I'd rather my kid model themselves after knight then a dirtball like calipari any day

    Honestly... not so sure I would. Look how Alford turned out.

    If it came down to the two, yes .. Knight without much hesitation. But I think there are plenty of other worthy coaches out there that I'd rather have my kid live 4 or 5 years of their young lives in the shadow of.

    Re: bobby knight

    this brings me to another question. There's really two kinds of coaches in college sports, the brilliant coaching tactician (the bobby knight) or the relentless recruiter (calipari). what category do our coaches fall under? which is better for a program? which would you prefer to have at ISU?

    Re: bobby knight

    I work for a guy that models himself after Bobby Knight. I love it, but it does take a certain kind of person to work for someone like that. You humble yourself pretty damn quick.

    And BK is exactly right on Callipari. He is the living and breathing version of Blue Chips.

    um, what? Model yourself after Bobby Knight? NEVER. Are you going nutty? I like Calipari. If you think Calipari is a dirtbag, then you think the same about Tim Floyd. Right?

    Re: bobby knight

    I would never voluntarily work for a Bobby Knight type of person. Just because you are good at what you do, it doesn't give you the right to treat other like ****. Knight's additude that he is above all others grows old.
    I would hire Calapari over Knight anyday of the week.

    Trust me, I never thought I would work for someone like that and it is frustrating at times, but the experiences and knowledge you gain is worth it.
