    Bobby Knight has resigned from Texas Tech, effective immediately

    Shocking!

    His son will take over.

    Its a shame that he could not retire as coach of the Indiana Hoosiers.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    That's terrible. He's the BEST basketball coach of our generation, if not of all time.

    Does this mean he wants to go somewhere better, or is he retiring?
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    If he's going somewhere else, it won't be this season. It's pretty rare to make a coaching change half way into conference play.

    What happened that caused him to resign?
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Maybe he finally realized he was a jerk.

    The hundreds of players he has graduated and helped mold into productive, healthy members of society might disagree with you.

    Compare his graduation rate to the rest of the country--esp. at top-flight, big-name programs--and tell me again who the jerk is.

    He may be a jerk to some...or comes across as one, but his players, current and former had/have his back.

    Not everybody can say that.

    I used to work in Assembly Hall, tutoring students in a computer lab. I had enough contact with him to say affirmatively that he is a jerk. But if I had played ball for him, maybe my attitude would be different because the story with Bob is basically that if you are not part of his world, you are useless.

    I'm not saying he wasn't a single-minded hard-ass, to be certain. But he had a much more positive effect on college basketball and the lives of his players than the unfortunate negative aspects of his fiery personality.

    His job was to graduate players and win basketball games.

    Nobody's done a better job than Bob Knight. Nobody did it as pure as Knight, either.

    Never said he wasn't a good coach or that he wasn't concerned about academics, which is admirable.

    I just saying that he's jerk with huge anger management issues.

    That's pretty much as indisputable as is the rest of his record.
