Bob Knight dislikes Kentucky -- it's transparent

Indulge me for a second and imagine this was college football season. And imagine there was a team, late in the season, that was demonstrably better than almost everyone else, bearing down on a spot in the BCS title game. Imagine that team was, say, Alabama. And imagine it had the likely Heisman Trophy winner in, say, Mark Ingram.

And imagine the most famous college football analyst in America, when asked about the top teams and players in the country, never mentioning the words "Alabama" or "Mark Ingram."

Couldn't happen, right? I don't care who he is -- Lou Holtz, Kirk Herbstreit, Gary Danielson, whoever -- no analyst could get away with that.

So why is Bob Knight getting away with it?

Why won't Bob Knight say the words "Kentucky" or "Anthony Davis?"

Knight was on the Mike and Mike show today, and he was talking about some of the top teams in the country. He glowed about Syracuse but never mentioned Kentucky, which is odd considering Kentucky is No. 1 in both polls. Of the 96 available votes in the two polls combined, Kentucky received 94 this week. Kentucky is the leading candidate not just for a No. 1 seed, but for the No. 1 overall seed, and is the overwhelming favorite of Vegas oddsmakers to win the title.

But Knight doesn't want to mention the Wildcats -- coached by John Calipari, whom Knight has verbally attacked in the past.

You could chalk that up as a matter of opinion, as Knight being vintage contrarian Knight, but not when you combine it with another recent segment of his -- when he was talking about the best players in the country. He never mentioned Kentucky's Anthony Davis, which is odd considering the rest of the country considers Davis and Kansas' Thomas Robinson not just the leading candidates for national POY ... but the only candidates for national POY. And as an added bonus, Davis is the presumptive No. 1 overall pick if he enters the 2012 NBA Draft.

But Knight doesn't want to mention Davis -- coached by John Calipari, whom Knight has verbally attacked in the past.

This sort of thing, coming from an analyst, is about as brazen and ridiculous as a coach throwing a chair across the court or grabbing a player by the neck and having it caught on video.

So why is Bob Knight getting away with it?

Bob Knight dislikes Kentucky -- it's transparent

Bobby Knight is the most beloved coach in basketball history.  Gene Hackman's portrayal of him in "Hoosiers" is legendary, and "Hoosiers" is the best sports movie of ALL TIME.  IU already spanked UK like a redheaded stepchild, thanks to Cody Zellar, the NCAA rookie of the year. 



Anthony Davis > Cody Zellar. Fact

IU already spanked UK like a redheaded stepchild


Having Bobby Knight as inspiration for spanking his players must have been all IU needed to spank Kentucky by 1. That's OK, Kentucky won their conference, just like Indian.....oh, wait. But, if it helps you sleep at night, then good for you. Be sure to watch CBS on Monday, April 2nd. You will see Kentucky win #8, which is 3 more than Indiana. 


Per Wikipedia:

Douche bag, or simply douche, is considered to be a  term. The slang usage of the term originated in the 1960s.<sup id="cite_ref-4" class="reference"></sup> The term usually refers to a person, usually male, with a variety of negative qualities, specifically  and engaging in obnoxious and/or irritating actions, most often without .<sup class="Template-Fact">[]


</sup>DAMN!!!! This fits Bobby Knight PERFECTLY.

MAKING you stupid? You were stupid WAYYYYY before posting on here, douchebag.

Where, exactly IS redneckland? Having 2 college degrees, I KNOW that I am a rather intelligent person. I took calculus, chemistry, English Literature, Physics, World Civilization......but in all my years, I don't remember ever hearing of a place called Redneckland. Is this like Zombieland? Did they make a movie about Redneckland?

Yeah I am uneducated this from an inbred redneck living in a trailer.You use the word douchebag alot and you also said you wanted to blow Knight do you live on Brokeback Mtn too.


Yeah, I am uneducated. This coming from an inbred, redneck living in a trailer. You use the word douchebag a lot and you also said you wanted to blow Knight. Do you like on Brokeback Mountain also? 


If you WERE, indeed, educated, then your comment would have looked like that. But, what you posted was something that had numerous grammatical errors, missed punctuation, etc...etc....etc.....


Oh, I never said I wanted to blow Bob Knight. I insinuated that your love affair for him meant that if he unzipped his pants and ordered YOU to blow him, that you would without hesitation. I am pretty sure that I proved my point.

Actually you are a douchebag and an ignorant redneck.I wish you would come to me with a gun and I would shove it down your throat.So easy for jerks like you to spew your hate while hiding in your panties behind a computer in your trailer your friggin goober idiot.

And you brokeback mtn fag I see you like to talk about men sucking men.Is that what you and your Dad do when you watch Kentuckey basketball.


I would have to borrow Bobby Knight's gun. I don't own one. 


Goober idiot???? What are you, 10 yrs old? That's the best you can come up with?


And, it's spelled KENTUCKY. But, seeing that you are an uneducated douchebag, I can forgive you.
