I read the other articles and boy did some Panties get in a Knot. You MUST say my Favorite team's name with reverence and respect.

Calipari is a douche and you know the NCAA smackdown is coming. Its just a matter of when the crap hits the fan. Usually the year after he has left.

As long as I can fantasize about Ashley Judd moaning "Kentucky" over and over and over again, what do I care about Bob Knight?
 
2012-03-20 09:37:53 AM  
It probably has to do with the fact that Kentucky cheated under Eddie Sutton and Calipari has cheated at UMass and Memphis and recruits a lot of one and done players.

Bob Knight never cheated. Sure he was verbally and physically abusive, but he ran a clean program.

I loved Knight at Indiana, but he's a megalomaniac. How can you reach that age, and be that successful and still have the emotional maturity of an 8th grader?

UK fans are going to dislike Calipari more than Knight by the time he has gone. Any hardware you have in your cabinets from Calipari's time there will most likely be gone shortly after him. But don't worry, even if you couldn't keep the trophies and banners he won, he'll leave you with the sanctions to remember him by.

Back to the topic. Bob Knight refusing to say "Kentucky" is the least scandalous issue with "The Worldwide Leader". I think it's kind of funny.

Just remember Kentucky fans, even if you win the championship this year, you'll be forfeiting it in a few years due to an investigation into cheating. Enjoy the good times...

Last year when Thomas Robinson lost his mother a month after losing his Grandmother, Knight and Musburger did a KU game for ESPN a week or so after. Early in the game, one of the Morris twins had made a bad play in the post on the offensive end, and Knight was just tearing him a new one the rest of the game, determined that every viewer knew exactly what he did wrong. At some point in the second half, coming out of break, they begin to roll tape of all the KU players attending the funeral, and Musburger begins to speak about it, obviously trying to get Knight to say something about it as well. This isn't verbatim, but it's pretty close.

Musburger: Coach, as you know sophomore Thomas Robinson lost his mother, as well as his grandmother this past month, tragic circumstances that he and his team have had to overcome. His entire team attended his mother's funeral, and now young Thomas is responsible for not only himself, but his 9 year old sister as well, whom is temporarily staying with a family in the Lawrence area. The entire Lawrence community have embraced Thomas and his sister to help them through this trying time, and Thomas himself has shown remarkable strength and poise through this ordeal.

Knight:......OK, I want to show you why Marcus Morris should not have picked up his dribble in the post right here.

It was at that point that I decided Knight must be autistic in some way. Asperger's or some other form, but he just did not give two shiats about anything Musburger had to say about Thomas Robinson. Not word one of sympathy or encouragement, he just immediately launched back into the X's and O's. He's Basketball Rainman, the only thing that matters to him is showing people the right way to play basketball.

There's a point here.

FWIW, Knight is not all that difficult to understand. He's a throwback to older days and older ways, sure, but you have to consider the atmosphere at USMA when he was coaching there. This is a time when the institution itself allowed hazing as part of its disciplinary course toward molding "leaders of character to serve the common defense". Whether spoken or unspoken, it was accepted at the time and it was the order of things. Knight carried this through his coaching career at IU and has implemented it into his life as a value. The belief that the ends justify the means, all part of it. For its part, USMA has reevaluated and altered their model of discipline and personal accountability over the last 30+ years to more align with what would be acceptable in the civilian world. This is also reflected in his relationship with Coach K.

Now is it an excuse for not walking in step as the institution has and changing standards to reflect the modern world (as Coach K has)? Maybe not, but he achieved a lot of success by doing it "my way", so one could see how he might be resistant to change.

That stuff works different at big schools, if UK were to win a championship, the NCAA probably wouldn't take anything away even if they found some evidence. But that being said, I don't think you have to pay players to come to a school like UK. They have to go somewhere because of the stupid NBA rule, and UK has a coach that grooms for the NBA, and you'll be on TV every game you play, and the commentators will say your name constantly. You'll get more money not getting pair at UK, than you would getting paid at a smaller school.

Sutton sucked, but he was fired for loosing, not for cheating.

nopokerface: Who knows, maybe the NCAA will let UK keep their championships even if they do pay their players. They let Duke keep theirs.


Cal/Camby at UMass and K/Maggette at Duke are totally different situations.

Duke claimed in 2009 that they had such little control over their program that they had no clue that Maggette was getting paid. "Clearly we weren't aware of it," Rossiter said.

Meanwhile, Calipari is the one who reported the Camby situation to the NCAA, and was later told "The committee fully recognizes you had nothing to do with the violations of Marcus Camby during the 1995-96 season. In a sense, you were an innocent victim."

So, Cal's a cheater, K's a paragon of virtue and leadership. All because the NCAA likes to selectively enforce rules.

Really? Because when Duke was caught playing an ineligible player, they were allowed to keep their banners from that year.

Off on a tangent, I liked this line FTA:

"The network pays billions of dollars in rights fees to sports leagues that its supposed to objectively cover and this is the ethical conundrum that bothers people?"

There are people who hold ESPN to journalistic standards? It's "E! News" for sports, not CNN. Heck, the Hollywood gossip rags at least don't negotiate multi-billion dollar contracts just so they're allowed the access they need in order to exist (yeah, money changes hands... but it's not necessarily a codified quid pro quo backed up by armies of lawyers).

I'm not sure making a claim, then refusing to support your statement with anything resembling a fact when it gets challenged, amounts to "owning" anybody.

No, Sutton was fired for cheating, same as AD Cliff Hagan, who was running a hell of a "Good Ol' Boy" system in Lexington. Emery package, $1,000 cash, that sort of thing. "Kentucky's Shame" as the cover of Sports Illustrated.

Hagan's athletics department was so dirty that Kentucky won the SEC in 1977, in football. That's really, really dirty.

No need to deploy an alt to back you up. You asked for some evidence, he said it was obvious. You then pestered the writer repeatedly while he deployed a devastatingly hilarious line and proceeded to ignore you.

You then linked to your pathetic "conversation" in an even more pathetic attempt to contribute something relevant. You failed.

Chris Chase is a farking hack. He's been writing terrible NFL articles for years, and it seems he knows just as little about basketball as well.
