Like most of you, I’m watching today’s game on the Big Ten Network. But my friends from the IDS, Jeremy Rosenthal and Dave Leno, are in Columbus and will be providing updates and analysis. Feel free to join the discussion as IU aims to reclaim first in the Big Ten.
Evoking all sorts of images from that Charlie Daniels classic, Bob Knight is reportedly interested in taking the head coaching job at Georgia.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Furman Bisher, who’s old enough to hold grudges against anyone with Japanese lineage for Pearl Harbor, first reported that Knight wants the Georgia job, but won’t ask for it.
Now, the AJC’s Tim Tucker has this â€” the Bulldogs would welcome Knight to Athens.Â
â€œIâ€™d like to play for Coach Knight â€” as long as he doesnâ€™t hit me,â€ freshman forward Trey Thompkins said.
Thompkins said he was kidding, of course. But maybe he wasn’t, and just didn’t want his first meeting with Knight to be physical.
Knight has also been connected with the Alabama job, though it seems unlikely that Nick Saban, the only man with an ego large enough to challenge Knight’s, would let that happen.
We’ll get the chat started about 6:45. A couple of quick notes first:
Former Indiana wide receiver/outfielder and current Cincinnati Reds prospect Andrew Means has been invited to the NFL combine.
The Combine — which has a longer, fancier name that no one uses — will be held Feb. 20-26 in Indy. Players run, jump, lift weights and take tests while pro scouts swarm.Â We’ll be sure to have a reporter there to cover the fun.
Game starts at 8:30. Chat should be up and running around 8ish.
Doug Wilson and I will be in our usual spot on Thursday at 11 a.m. for our weekly online discussion.
We can talk Hoosiers basketball, men’s or women’s, or football signing day or Kelvin Sampson (Doug is reuniting with the old coach in Indianapolis tonight in what will surely be an emotional night for both of them.)Â Whatever you want.
