Bobby Knight

So Bob Knight just up and quit yesterday.  Decided mid-season that he was done coaching.  His son will take over the Men's BB team at Tech. 
The great indicator of how important he is to this community is that we found out when an emergency news flash came scrolling across the TV screen.  You know, the kind that normally tell you that there's a tornado about to bear down on your house and kill you. 

Of course, as soon as we found out, we checked the internet and discovered that it was already headline news on AOL, MSN and Yahoo. 

I'm suddenly kind of glad that I didn't bother with shelling out the 75 bucks or so to go to the games this semester.  Basketball won't be near so much fun without everybody keeping one eye on Coach Knight, Sr.

Yeah, saw that too. Interesting, huh? I was reading about how he might be the winning-est men's basketball coach in major college basketball history, with an excellent record of graduating players and enforcing NCAA policy, yet one of the most controversial in college basketball history. I'd never want to play for him but actions can speak louder than words (I mean his record, not his nearly strangling a player).
