    If not jealousy, then what? Just saying some BS to get IU fans fired up?

    Knight says stupid things but why would he be jealous of Calipari, a coach who has never won a championship and just happens to be the "flavor of the month"? Comments like this are why UK fans get a bad rap. Someone criticizes their coach or program so it must be jealousy.

    He's jealous of Calipari because Calipari is now coaching the hottest team in America, while Knight is sitting behind a microphone (sometimes) and wants to be in Calipari's seat.

    He's also trying to get IU fans fired up.

    He's also trying to rile up the media and get more publicity.

    He's also a tool and a bully who genuinely dislikes Kentucky because Kentucky's been just as good as he over the past four decades.

    On another note, I met Coach Knight while in college. He was not a nice person. At all.

    Yeah, he wants Cal's job. Right.

    I met him while he was doing a UC game for ESPN. He was ok when I saw him, he signed autographs for some kids who asked him after the game. FWIW, I met a couple UK coaches in person as well. Pitino was an arrogant jerk. Tubby was one of the nicest coaches I've ever met, very personable.

    Knight wants any job where he can still coach, be in the spotlight, and bully opponents. If there were a College Basketball Shangri-La for Knight, Kentucky would be one of his Seven Heavens.

    That's all pretty silly. Sounds more like you have an axe to grind with Knight. Why would he be trying to fire up IU fans? I don't think he really cares much about IU basketball.

    I've met him a couple times. He seemed fairly nice to me.

    Which is of course why he retired.
    And believe me, that wasn't under pressure from anyone. He was able to install his dolt of a son at TT so I'm pretty sure Texas Tech would have been perfectly happy to have him coaching.

    If a coach is bound and determined to cheat, they will cheat.

    Cal is not a cheater. He will certainly not cheat at Kentucky. The stakes are way too high. UK self-reports anything that could carry a whisper of improper action. Cal will not knowingly commit any infractions at Kentucky. The same could not be said, for example, about Kelvin Sampson.

    Of course, the rest of my quote included being in the spotlight (and bullying opponents), neither of which he could have done in Lubbock.

    Similarly, why wasn't Cal more involved in a standardized test administered hundreds of miles away.
    Calipari "put two schools on probation", WMR. You seem to be forgetting that. Furthermore, he did it on purpose, just to see if he could get away with it. There's ample proof that John Calipari knew about these situations as they were happening, and simply laughed about it.

    Skip Bayless at ESPN said that he should be banned from coaching in the NCAA for one year. If Skip Bayless and Bobby Knight and others say that he has no integrity and that he should banned, then it must be so.

    Now excuse me while I go choke my kids and throw a folding chair.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    From Urban Dictionary definition of Dolt:


    A mental retard who is clueless not only about current events, but also has the IQ level of a rock. "Dolt" may be the most sophisticated insult in the English language. Dolts commonly populate such stereotypes as jocks, nerds, fruits, bookworms, and dorks.


    This comment is pretty uncalled for if you ask me. To call Pat Knight a retard who seems clueless about what is going on around him is pretty over the line. I am sure Pat Knight doesn't always see eye to eye with his Dad and I am sure sometimes when he makes these comments he wishes dear old Dad would just go away. I think it will be always be a case of the sins of the father being passed on to the son.

    FWIW Texas Tech is 9-0 and 16th in the country, too bad Daddy will get all the credit.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    And if a kid is bound and determined to cheat on a test or take money from an agent, they will do so. The trick is getting kids that wouldn't do such things. And Cal's track record there... Anyway, it annoys me that UK fans act like no violations will happen because Sandy Bell is there. She is no silver bullet.
