I wonder what Knight thinks of Sampson?

After finally reading through Bob Kravitz’s column this afternoon, I know. Well, I’m relatively sure. I mean, there’s room for interpretation.

A quick bit of background: Bob Knight was in Indianapolis last night appearing on a show called “Mickey’s Corner,” which is, from what I’ve gathered, not exactly hard hitting.

But at one point, the host did dangle a chance for Knight to take a swipe at Kelvin Sampson, a coach he had feuded with while they competed in the Big 12 and who many of Knight’s former players openly criticized.

Knight, of course, took it.

The closest we got to juicy was when Maurer asked a general question — not a Sampson-related question — about cheating in recruiting. “If you get caught cheating, they should shoot you,” Knight said. “Because you’re too dumb to be alive.”

I would strongly recommend that Sampson never hunt quail with Knight. Seriously.
Along these lines, how soul cleansing would it be to hear Knight go on a 3-min. unbridled rant about Sampson, ala the Greg Graham internet rant?! Let’s just get it all out there in one f-bomb laden tirade to listen and forward a couple hundred times.

Gotta love his honesty, it may cut deep at times but damn if he’s not always right. Oh and I doubt he was kidding at all about the shooting, he’ll do it.

This is classic Bobby Knight! How I do miss him and even his tirades. He was an amazing coach and he is still dearly missed in this town!!
