Bob Knight is back in Bloomington.
The long-time head coach of the Hoosiers refused to return to Assembly Hall for a basketball game since he was terminated in 2000. This afternoon the three-time national champion finally buried the hatchet with Hoosier fans.
Standing next to dozens of former players, the 79 year-old Knight received a standing ovation during halftime of the Indiana-Purdue rivalry game.
The General Returns.

It’s the biggest moment in Bloomington since the Wat Shot. Think they’ll put this on a popcorn box?
