Pat Knight makes me giggle

Did you see that steaming hunk of crap coming from Pat Knight's, er, mouth in this story here about replacing his father at Texas Tech?

Unbelieveable. I believe the money quote comes when Pat says, "I don't think I would have been able to live with myself if I'd taken a different route, maybe a safer route, try to go to a smaller school or work it that way. Really, I just thought 'What the heck, I love it here.'"

What smaller school is he talking about? Every smaller school says no to Pat, who tried to get the head coaching jobs when they were vacant at Wright State, Fresno State, New Mexico State and Loyola (Ill.) See, in the coaching community Pat Knight is known as something of a silver-spooned knucklehead.

So don't act like you did anyone a favor, Pat. You had no other options. You never have had any other options.

How about that, Greggy?  We know you read the comments to your blog.  So did you indeed make similar comments about Dick Bennett and prove to have your mouth solidly planted in your mouth (difficult to do with your head solidly planted in your, er, the ground.)?  Or did you write about the  Bennetts and recognize Dick Bennett's potential as a coach?

zcg makes a great point. particuarly if he is accurate about you guys dissing dick bennett for what
he did at wsu. dick bennett is a CLASS ACT, something not remotely related to bobby (say good) Knight.

Not sure what this means for pat knight. I will say this, it was refreshing, in the least, to see in the
CBS interview of Pat Knight that the Knight family has:

1) Someone who can smile and is not just making fun of someone
2) Someone who can talk about "personal" issues, such as the difficulty his Dad has had
living down his history of menace to society...without making pitiful or self protective remarks only.
3) Someone who is seemingly an actual nice guy with a real personality.

Too bad it is too late to rub off on his Dad.

See what gives at TT. Maybe the kid has it in him. Let us give him the chance
that his "tutelage" and ...bred line deserve.

Just because "America" kicked Britain's ass in the war doesn't mean
it has to diss off all the royalty nepotisms...give the "kid" a chance.

Just imagine, it can't be easy being Bobby Knight's kid.

Can you imagine?  I can't.

If memory serves, Gregg wrote a virtually identical article about Tony Bennett when Bennett was preapring to succeed his father as head coach.  He disparaged both Bennetts as well as the school, saying how Dick Bennett had only come out of retirement to get his boy the job the following year, and how Tony would surely flop in a major program.  Now Doyel and the rest of the sportsline staff fawns over him like he's the next Auerbach.  Maybe Pat will fail terribly, maybe he'll be okay, mabe Tech will become the next WSU -- wait and see before dishing out your divine opinion.

I'll give him two years before Texas Tech fires him.  Those alums didn't pay for Pat Knight.  They paid for his dad.

We can only hope that  Texas Tech has enough guts to Just Say No to Knight Lite.  Nepotism at its best.   Bobby would scream if he were forced to accept a player who was a 'legacy'-   then he has the nerve to do that very thing.     
; TT deserves better.

Pat is going to take advise from Bob the general this year, and who knows for how long after that. Bobby

is still the man if you guys don't think so go to a practice. I live just down the road.

Greg you are so on the money...I mean, I compare it this way

coaching for Major College= writer for the NY Times

coaching for Texas Tech=a writer for a meaningless blog at CBS Sportsline

I mean, its cool, you probably have no other options as well...
