Bloomberg Politics reports that Mike Tyson, Mike Ditka, Bobby Knight, and NASCAR CEO Brian France have all chosen to shed whatever dignity they…
"Hey, boys! Have a seat! Have a seat!"
Despite being one of the most infamous coaching meltdowns in history and either the first or second thing that comes to mind when you hear the name Bobby Knight, there is one crucial aspect of The Incident With The Chair that is consistently misremembered: the type of chair he chucked across the floor.
Bob Knight has a new book out next week. It's called The Power of Negative Thinking: An Unconventional Approach to Achieving Positive Results, because Bob Knight is still playing his (lucrative) role as college basketball's senile great-uncle. He sat down with Andrew Goldman for the New York Times Magazine's weekly…
Poor officiating continues to be the story of this college basketball season, as SEC refs swallowed the whistle on a clear Kentucky shot clock violation late in the Wildcats' bout against Vanderbilt in Nashville tonight and allowed UK to march home to Lexington with a 60-58 win.
You know a roast/fundraiser is going to rule when one of the roasters is relegated to video-conferencing in because of a broken hip, like Jud Heathcote did last night for a Bobby Knight roast in Hammond, Ind.

Bobby Knight will be inducted into the Indiana University Hall of Fame, less than 10 years after he was given the boot for yelling at kids. That should be a fun ceremony, huh?

It's not so troublesome that Mike Krzyzewski was in this Guitar Hero commercial; it seems he's spent all season with his pants around his ankles, as other teams run off with his lunch money.
There are two things I wish. First, that Indiana wasn't 1-11 in the Big Ten. And second, that Daulerio hadn't taped porn over the first 18 minutes of this instructional video.
The Indiana Hoosiers have never lost 18 games in a season; not even under the dubious Harry C. Good (1944-46), who was only there because Branch McCracken was serving in World War II.

If you're near a TV around 8:40 (ET) this morning, it might be worth dialing up ESPN to witness Bobby Knight's unofficial debut as a basketball commentator. Knight will join Mike & Mike (there's a sentence I never thought I'd type) for a little NCAA hoops discussion. It's all a prelude to Knight's official debut as an…
Bobby Knight has joined the other team. Nope, he's not announcing that he's gay, although I know that's what you were thinking. He's merely becoming what he has loathed most throughout his coaching career: A member of the sports media. Knight will become a studio analyst for ESPN for the NCAA men's postseason, which…
