Kentucky Sports Radio

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

No Bob Knight tonight. Shucks.

When Pat Knight brings those boys from Lamar into Rupp Arena this evening, don’t expect to see his father anywhere in the crowd to watch the game. Bob Knight’s son said yesterday that his dad won’t be attending the game for what we’ll call ‘personal reasons.’ “He’s not a big fan of Kentucky,” he said.

Yeah, we noticed.

Kentucky fans have hated Bob Knight for almost three decades now, so it’s no surprise that the old man will be keeping his distance tonight. ESPN couldn’t even get Knight to do College Gameday when the show rolled into town two years ago for the Tennessee game. Knight was a co-host on the show at that time. Remember? He wore sweaters.

Pat Knight seems to be a little bit more tolerable than his old man, but I’m sure Kentucky fans are still going to give it to him when he’s announced before the game. It might be time to pull the “Daddy’s Boy” chants out of the attic.

Go Cats.

    If there was ever a game in which UK should run up the score as much as possible, this is it.

    Bob Knight is the greatest coach ever! The media takes everything he does out of context. If he was still at IU we’d have 4 more banners! Yesssssssssss!

    Why are Bobby and Pat coaching for O’Reilly’s auto parts? Bobby hasn’t been relevant since 1987 and Pat never was.

    Why not cheer like crazy when they announce Pat? His Dad is the one that hates our guts and the one we can’t stand, right? I can’t think of anything that would tick him off more than us treating his kid well and Pat having to say positive things about Kentucky.

    was it not bobby knight who originally wanted the uk-iu series to change into neutral court format? i heard he hated coaching the hoosiers in rupp arena

    Bobby Knight is probably the most hated coach ever to set foot in the state of Kentucky. If you think about it, we actually hate him more than Pitino. I have never liked him and wish he would go somewhere (else) and give up the ghost. He’s nothing more than a stupid bully who acts like he knows the game of basketball. The basketball he knew faded away about 20 years ago which is when he should have gone also.

    He can’t make it because it’s tough to travel when you have Vitale and Coach K hanging off your nuts.

    Bobby who? Did he use to coach a minor league team or something? Liked to bird hunt and wound up shooting people? Full of hate cause he was always minor league. Cant keep a job….thinks he knows every play that is gonna happen and when he misses it he says well they should have run what I said they were going to. Bob who? Thinks he is a great coach. Likes to smack students around. Never heard of him hitting a good old redneck ky boy though. Bob who?

    i don’t have anything coherent or insightful to say but i just wanted to say screw knight. for an asshole who should have been kicked out of coaching 40 years ago, he sure is exhalted by the elite sports media. just more proof that pricks live forever and prosperously. screw knight too. screw his son too.

    Hey Hoosier, we saw your post the first time, you didn’t have to put it on twice. As for Bobby Knight’s place is history, he’ll be best remembered as a bully. Maybe that’s who the IU fans are using as a role model these days.

    Fact: Bobby couldn’t adapt once the 3 was introduced. Opinion: His son would never get a head coaching job without his last name, just like Eddie Suttons son. See the difference Hoosier? Maybe you can order a dictionary online, since they don’t use them in Indiana, to learn that opinions don’t matter. Indianas 25 year run of no championships is relevant though. Hell, Butler is the best team in your state and has the best coach in your state… Hahaha your a joke.

    What ever happened to those NCAA violations that old man Knight committed when he was contacting the younger Knight’s recruits and trying to get them to go to Lamar? Swept under the rug, huh? Old man Knight talks a big game against UK and Calipari but can’t keep those pesky NCAA rules straight…I mean there’s so many.

    Actually, I miss the crusty old bastard. He put a lot of fun in the IU-UK rivalry by being such a total horse’s ass. Hope that the deal gets done and the annual border battle can continue with Crean vs. Cal.

    Yeah, Bob Knight needs for someone to just smack the Dog Sh*t out of him and then tell him to go p*ss up a rope. He’s nothing more than an old bastard who just needs to go away, as in forever!!
