There are not many Bob Knight fans in Kentucky.
There was plenty of hate when the Cats beat his undefeated Hoosiers in the 1975 NCAA Tournament. It started the year before when he slapped Joe B. Hall in the face on the sideline. He became easier to hate when he was doing stuff like this:
Then there was that time he said UK players don’t go to class. When he was hired to be an “analyst” for ESPN, we learned that he has a thing for Krakel bars, keeping a secret stash with him whenever he was “working.” There’s no indication that he was stealing the Krakel bars but the latest anecdote gives me reason to speculate.
I guess that’s what you get for inviting Bob Knight to an event. He’s climbing in ya windows, he’s snatchin’ up ya cheese. Hide ya cheese, hide ya wife.
