Bob Knight prepares for ESPN’s halftime show at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday. Chris Howell | Herald-Times
ESPN tried to give Bob Knight an out. At halftime of last night’s Indiana-Pitt game, with Bob Knight seated next to John Saunders and Digger Phelps, the proposed topic was the first game, between Butler and Georgetown. But Knight said he wanted to talk about the second game and then said, “Indiana has really dominated the inside.” Phelps tried to bring it back to Georgetown, and Knight took it back to IU, citing how the Hoosiers were getting to the free throw line as a reason for their success.
Chris Korman and I were shocked. So were many of the live chat participants. What was your reaction? Does this mean Knight is slowly warming to Indiana, and that maybe his reason for not attending the Hall of Fame ceremony was legitimate, and not just a convenient excuse? Or is this just Knight jabbing ESPN for assuming he wouldn’t want to talk about something happening right in front of him? Or was it something else?
