Bobby Knight Calls The Kettle Black


To be fair, Knight said the chair was being ‘idiotic.’

And what would a week be, without Bobby Knight making an idiotic comment?  A boring one, that’s what.  Last night The General stuck up for his Alma Mater – Ohio State – and berated the NCAA for punishing the Buckeyes.  Specifically he said “It’s an idiotic rule…  I think this NCAA that we’re currently involved with is so far out of touch with the integrity of the sport that it’s just amazing.”  Yes, the rule preventing players from getting Cars for zero dollars in exchange for tickets is an idiotic rule.  And while the NCAA certainly isn’t consistent – and they may be out of touch with the integrity of the sport (kind of don’t think so,) – at least they aren’t out of touch with reality.

In Bobby Knights world, rules that are broken by programs he has been associated with are idiotic – probably shouldn’t have even been rules in the first place, right?  Whereas programs he has a distaste for much be full of kids who don’t go to class and are coached by those that lack integrity.  You know, unlike that stand up Jim Tressel character.

But like a senile grandfather, you can’t really do much with Knight except grin and bear it.  Or as he might put it – lay back and enjoy it.

And, you know, hope he’s the replacement AD at Tennessee.

    If it was Cal and UK, he would have come out guns blazing saying how UK was dirty and cheaters. Since it’s his boy Sweater Vest and his alma mater, he says the NCAA is stupid. Bobby Knight is like your grumpy old grandpa who loves to complain and talk about ‘the good old days’ while reminiscing about Pistol Pete. I wonder if he likes Tressel so much because, like Knight, he rocks a sweater (vest) all the time? Mister Rogers wore sweaters too…won’t you be my neighbor?

    Let’s be honest, aren’t we all that way? By no means am I defending that idiotic Bobby Knight, but we all tend to give some mercy to our “own kind” if you will. Would we have cared if Enes Kanter had committed to Duke and the NCAA ruled him ineligible? Honestly? We would have called them whiners because the NCAA didn’t let them have their way. But hey, that’s what makes it fun!!!

    Indiana is coming out with a new licence plate that displays ” INDIANA – ALMOST KENTUCKY ” !

    #6, very true, but the difference is Bobby Knight is still treated like a deity by some of those nuts over ESPN, his opinion is still somehow respected by many

    So maybe BK thinks Cal isn’t such a bad guy now over the whole Camby thing? Is that what I’m hearing?

    #6–Trouble is had he committed to Duke, he WOULDN’T have been declared ineligible…

    Bob Knight is still jealous of UK. Always has been, always will be. But can you blame him? UK owned him during his tenure as a college coach.

    Eat it Bobby

    Who knew Matt Jones covered Indiana during the late 70’s / early 80’s.

    Bob Knight is the Sarah Palin of basketball. Both quit their jobs and go around saying stupid things! What makes it even sicker is people listen to them!

    Bob Knight has ZERO ability to be objectionable about anything. He should cherish his role with ESPN and watch how they have to constantly apologize for his mouth, behavior and like of professionalism.

    He has always been a jerk and will always remain a jerk.

    Little Bobbie is our fault, poor kid had to wash Jerry Lucas’ jock for four years at Ohio State (bobbie did see the floor while he having a temper tantrum) and Jerry also had to do bobbies math school work. Bobbie kept after me to take him fishing and hunting with me, but I heard if he thought the creel and size limits were idiotic he wouldn’t didn’t obey the law. Lack of having any success with his abilities drove him to acting out for attention. Sorry world, we just not not bare anytime with his inferiority delusion of grandeur.

    Definitely agree with the senility factor; only Robt. Montgomery has displayed this for too many moons on and off the hard wood. Wondering if there is an OSU gene? Woodie Hayes, long ago OSU gridiron coach, displayed similar passionate, fitful, idiocy. GAWD, I shudder to think what Jim Tressel did when the the Village People called and demanded their vest back.

    This was yrs. ago,when me and a buddy were going quail hunting and Bob Knight was supposed to go with us.He didn’t show up,because he probably heard that we were planning to “accidently” shoot him!

    Knight is quickly replacing “W” as spouting the most inane and incomprehensible crap ever.
