Bob Knight has been replaced on ESPN’s Big Monday

I have some unfortunate news for Bob Knight fans. If you see any of them, please let them know.

SportsbyBrooks is reporting that Fran Fraschilla will replace Bob Knight on ESPN’s Big Monday college basketball telecasts. That means we can all enjoy Monday night college basketball games again.

I feel awful for whatever intern had to break the news to Knight.

    Damn. I was hoping he would do the telecast so he would hear the loudest Boooo he’s ever heard. It might have caused the banners to wave.

    @ 4 – I’m not so sure a Knight:Sandusky comparison is appropriate; however, Knight is a turd, and the nation will be better off without having to hear his sand-and-glue voice and ignorant comments any longer

    The comments section under the James Young story on espn is exploding from trollers. They hate us. They really hate us.

    When I have the displeasure of having to be around a HooHoo, I find
    plenty of those idiots still think this guy’s wonderful. Somethin’
    in the water up there in yankee country, man. Sickening.

    A permanent vacation. Seriously I love this guy “Baby” but he is now embarassing all of us with his antics. Come Bobby..get out of the limelight. Your makeing yourself look bad in your twighlight. We can only do so much to protect your legacy. You keep it up, all bets are off.

    I think I’m the better Knight comparison. He just got away with it due to the lack of things like the Internet, phone cameras, and media that give the public instant information.

    Don’t feel too bad for poor Booby – I hear he’s gonna be hositn a halfhour lead-in to “Big Monday” called “Big Dumbass.”

    if we paid noel to come here (which we didn’t) we know it’s OK to pay him 5,000 dollars because that’s what uconn did with boatright and Kansas did with shelby.

    So what we are seeing is this team in Indiana that places success above academics. There is this coach called Creen that will do what ever he can to win. This includes recruiting suspect recruits to further the cause of championships at the university . Academics are second to the cause. Fundamentally I find this to be wrong as academics should be first. But; if I can manipulate the system and do the “EXACT” same thing as Kentucky, and provide an advantage for Indiana, I am all over it. Others will says there is cheating involved, but we will pull the BK / MK Card. We will succeed, we are strong, no one can tell us we’re wrong. Ok wait….. that’s a Pat Benatar song…Seriously do I even have a unique thought. sigh……

    #19 said it appropriately – Knight is a “grumpy old bastard”.

    Knight and Calhoun would be a bad dream to have living on either side of you in a retirement community. Grumpy, bitter old curmudgeons…

    You guys are too hard on my ole coach. He’s really a sweetheart of a guy…very misunderstood. Why just a couple of weeks ago he invited your Coach Cal to go pheasant hunting with him. Where will you find a softer-hearted man?
