    30 for 30: The last days of Knight

    Just saw this advertised during the Two Bills 30 for 30. It looks to cover the end of the Bobby Knight reign at IU...coming this spring.

    He's pretty much fallen off the face of the earth.

    He was just a grumpy old man. Bobby temper tantrum. When things were going his way it's cool, when it isn't "i'm going to stomp my feet and yell'. Just like many old timers/dinosaurs, unwilling to change or adapt their ways.

    I know most everybody hates Bobby but besides the first year after he left, Indiana basketball has not been on the national scene. That you have to admit.

    No doubt, he was great at coaching the game (though he wasn't exactly setting the world on fire his last years 6-7 years at IU). By the mid-90s the culture and landscape of the game had changed so that his style and the recruiting game along with it didn't work.

    Like most, I have little tolerance for a bully, and that is what he is.

    They also were only ranked twice at the end of the season (19th and 22nd) in his last 6 years at IU.

    Agree. I think he is probably just a miserable, unhappy person.

    Back in his day, he was one of the best coaches. No doubt about it.

    I used to be a fan of Knight but not any longer. He just turned into a bitter old man...in some ways I feel sorry for him and in others, I do not. Like many of us, he had some great traits and he some not so great. As he got older and more bitter, rather than becoming more willing to forgive and let things go, he went the other direction and it is pretty sad to watch.

    No excuse for putting your hands on a player in anger...

    I think Knight was always bitter. It didn’t start with age.
