University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Ladies and gentleman, Bobby Knight is at it again…

 

Bobby Knight spoke to a crowd at the Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday night in Carmel, Indiana. Knight said a few kind words about the Indiana faithful, even choking up momentarily in front of the 1,600 person crowd. According to those in attendance, Knight spoke for nearly 90 minutes. He offered few touching moments during the speech, instead using the platform mostly to take shots at the NCAA, referees, fellow coaches…and…you guessed it…Kentucky fans.

 

Knight went on a tirade about the “one and dones” for what feels like the millionth time in the past year or two.

 

“I think it’s a disgrace. If I was an NBA general manager, I would never want to take a kid 18, 19 years old, a year out of college. I’d wait until someone else worked two or three years with him to adjust him to the NBA and I’d trade a draft pick.”

Fair enough. There’s probably a reason (or a hundred) why Bobby Knight is not an NBA general manager. Knight didn’t shy away in his speech on Saturday night though from using the word “Kentucky.” He brought up the fact that the Kentucky fans were upset with his apparent omission of their name when discussing the best teams in the country during the March Madness coverage on ESPN.

 

“Kentucky managed to get irritated over that because I mentioned them as the SEC team rather than Kentucky. Well they might not have known that Kentucky was in the SEC. I thought that was always a possibility with them.”

 

 

Huh? Sounds like a bit of a dig if you ask me. I thought we were through with him for a while. Just remember what Coach Cal said earlier this week: “Don’t let anyone steal our joy.” Especially not Bobby Knight. To read the full article about Knight’s speech from the Indy Star, click here.

    LOSER! Thoughts like these are why the game has passed him by and he’s no longer coaching!

    He won’t be stealing my joy. He’s an old IU coach; he’s supposed to hate UK. These comments make it clear that an NBA team with him as GM would lose to UK in an exhibition game.

    He’s just a bitter old man. The disgrace is that he wasn’t banned from coaching for his antics, slapping coaches, kicking balls, throwing chairs….not to mention the abuse of players verbal and physical. His bullying of basically everyone around him. He’s an absolute joke and he proves it more and more with every idiotic statement he makes. If Espn continues to employ him something is wrong.

    hes still crying. haters keep on hating thats because they are crying on the inside and this is the only way they have to show it. its like , whaaaa whaaaa, your one year guys took my older guys candy and i have to hate you for it cause blob knight cant let it go. on the other hand i think hes mad at ky for making his wife cry in the stands when the cats beat them in the tourney one year. that was a great moment. she was probably worried about the beating that was coming her way. not sure about that but its a real good guess. hes not married to that one anymore.

    Greats like Pat Summitt get dimensia and will have to leave basketball before her time. While angry, bitter men who abused college players and behaved like 8 year olds their ENTIRE adult lives get to keep going on angry and bitter off the court. Life just isn’t fair sometimes. By the way he lives his life, I am positive Knight has never and will never understand the true meaning of Easter. Happy Easter BBN.

    It’s so hard to be humble BBN when we’re the target of numerous haters. Especially now that “Banner 8” is hung by being on the cutting edge of college basketball. Showing all doubters, YES, you can win with a team of dominate freshman. So on occasions it’s perfectly okay to show the middle finger to those haters but at least let the hater of your choice be relevant. With of couple of generations now that never saw Knight coach a game, he’s just some old codger who won’t go away quietly. No hate for him… just sadness that he’s a bitter old turd.

    Through with Bobby Knight? One is never finished with Knight. The one thing he has shown throughout his career is perseverance. The man thinks he is right about everything and sees absolutely no reason to let go of anything he has done or said. Continuing to notice people who think they know everything is validation, only to them of course, of their superiority.

    So let’s say I’m an NBA general manager. (Hey, if Bobby Knight gets to be one, why can’t I get to be one, too?) I’ve got a kid on my team who was a one and done two years ago. He had a period of adjustment early, but had a solid second season, and looks to be on the verge of becoming an NBA all atar. Bobby Knight comes to me and wants to trade for him. The only way I’m trading for him is if RMK pays through the nose. I want cash, I want one of his starters, and I want a first round draft pick. So let’s say we make the trade, and the player has a fantastic season for Knight’s team. At the end of that third season, his rookie contract is up. He goes to Knight and says, “If I continue to play for you, I want a $100.000,000.00 contract.” So Knight has to pay through the nose again! That’s a lot of paying through the nose, even for sonmeone with a nose as big as his. One thing RMK should have learned long ago is, there are no free rides, but maybe Indiana let him get away with so much for so long that he’ll never learn that.

    Gus don’t be so sensitive…. Its quite funny to me. We’re never going to change Bobby Knights mind about one and done players and chances are a lot of our own fan base doesn’t like it either and they aren’t saying anything because we’ve just won a national title. So let Bobby Knight say what he wants to say it doesn’t take our National Title away from us. And if he wants to call us the team from the SEC then fine its not like the rest of the nation doesn’t know who he’s talking about. Let the man go and just laugh at him. You’ll get to him more if you laugh at him then trying to come at him all the time.

    The bottom line is he’s jealous. That’s all it is. He wanted the Kentucky job years ago and realized he screwed that up when he hit Joe B. Hall…..But if you know anything about him at all he worshipped Adolph Rupp and was constantly asking anyone associated with Rupp how he did things.

    Not to mention the fact that he at one time admitted he was a Kentucky fan as a kid growing up but him and his mouth need to go the way of Billy Packer to south Florida and retire to a nice little trailer park where he can play shuffleboard, drink tea, fart dust, and reminisce about the good ol days of punching players, opposing coaches, throwing chairs, shooting his friends, and other acts of showing his ass.
