Bobby Knight is great

Look at that beautiful technique. Chair throwing like this is a lost art in modern day coaching.

If you don’t like Bobby Knight that’s fine and dandy, but you have to respect the guy for speaking his mind.

Check out some of the zingers he threw out during his induction speech to the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame on Thursday night:

But Knight still lobbed memorable one-liners at some old targets.

He criticized a proposed tournament expansion to 96 teams, saying nobody should get a bye in the NCAA tournament.

He urged the governing body’s administration to require tournament teams to submit eligibility reports, an effort to assure that players who are competing in postseason games have been attending classes and earning acceptable grades.

“We’ve gotten into this situation where integrity is really lacking and that’s why I’m glad I’m not coaching,” he said. “You see we’ve got a coach at Kentucky [John Calipari], who put two schools on probation and he’s still coaching. I really don’t understand that.

“And very few people know this, but a kid can play the first semester as a freshman, pass six hours of anything and play in the NCAA tournament without ever attending a class in the second semester. I don’t think that’s right.”

Did Knight just call Calipari a cheater? Yep…he sure did. BK just flat out called John Calipari a cheater without really calling him a cheater.

Why not Bobby? Go for it. We all know that Coach Cal is as dirty as a Tiger Woods mistress. (YES! I told you that we’re going to ride this one out as long as it lets us…just like Tiger did. Oh, double freakin burn!)

Coach Knight never cheated as far as we know. (Unless chair throwing and choking players is a crime. If so, then I want no part of college basketball, sissies.) Knight recruited and landed tough midwestern kids and won with his amazing coaching and the player’s intense work ethic.

Some of the storied about stuff Bobby Knight has done on and off the floor are far to funny to even believe and now this can be added to the list.

Good for you Coach Knight. Way to throw Cal under the bus that’s already backed over him eight or nine times…dude has more lives than a house cat.
