    Coach Knight being Coach Knight

    Bobby Knight shows no remorse for choking and grabbing former players in a new interview and goes after John Wooden for cheating.

    Would a moderator be so kind as to fix the title of the thread(if worth it) and eliminate the comas. I have no idea why I put them in. Thanks.

    John Wooden was a cheater.

    If he were coaching today and the things UCLA did came out, he would be Rick Pitino.

    No one argues this point, do they?

    I have no idea. But when BK speaks, well, it has to be true. I don't trust or believe BK any more than I do Rick Pitino. He's a bully, classless, person in my book.

    The dark side of the UCLA basketball dynasty - latimes

    The Times established that Gilbert, during Wooden's heyday, helped players get cars, clothes, airline tickets and scalpers' prices for UCLA season tickets. Gilbert allegedly even arranged abortions for players' girlfriends.

    It's a well-known fact that Wooden paid players back then. Didn't even try to hide it.

    I don't argue that point one bit! The NCAA looked the other way for years while Sam Gilbert done his thing and enabled Wooden to build super teams of what would be considered OAD's by today's standards. All that dirty history is forgotten and Wooden is remembered as a mixture of the Red Auerbach, Gandhi, and Plato.

    Maybe you were in a comma.

    This brings up a thought. If Knight had worked under Wooden would he be doing this? Krzyzewski worked under Knight so is Coach K clean? I honestly believe NO college basketball coach is 100% clean, including Knight and Krzyzewski.

    Is anyone really offended if Bob Knight has no respect for them?

    Bobby Knight is a piece of garbage who happend to be a good coach. He reminds of pedophile priests. Can brain wash the parents enough to make them believe he is helping their child become a better person while also fooling the higher ups.

    Dude needs to go away

    I remember when Knight went after Cal a while back, wondering how someone who put two schools on probation could be at a place like Kentucky. He then held up Jim Tressel as a model NCAA coach. The same Jim Tressel who put two schools on probation.

    There's no doubt UCLA cheated, but there's also no doubt that Bobby Knight is one of the last people who should be riding a moral high horse.

    He definitely never cheated.
