This morning on Mike and Mike, Bobby Knight was asked about the best teams in college basketball. He listed five and guess who wasn’t among them? Kentucky. You know, the number one team in the country.
Has the rest of the world gotten to the point where they can no longer ignore his ignorance? Because I was there forever ago.
UPDATE: On the Mike & Mike Podcast, Knight seems to have just mentioned Syracuse as the best team, but we’ll keep looking into it.
Knight was on the Mike and Mike show today, and he was asked for his top teams in the country. He listed five: Syracuse, Duke, UNC, Missouri, Kansas.
None of them was 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 won’t concede that the Wildcats — coached by John Calipari, whom Knight has verbally attacked in the past — are in the top five.
You go, Gregg Doyel.
