He's going to fill in at Pepperdine for the rest of the year, right?

Hope he rides off into the sunset to a nice quiet life with his grand kids. He's earned it.

Guess we know what Dookie V will be rambling on and on and on about Weds. night. . .

I like him about as much as I like Tarkanian. So he has 902 career wins? I find him an unlovable person, no matter how good a coach he is.

This is very odd. I hope Bob does not have health problems. Absent a health issue, I am waiting for some sort of scandal to break out.

What is it with all the coaches turning over their teams to their sons? I can understand if you own a business and turn it over to your kids, but college coaches theoretically don't own the college they work for. Except maybe for Bob Knight.

Bobby Knight = Eddie Sutton

Or is it a coincidence that he quit so shortly after getting to 900?

Bobby Knight came to a basketball camp held years and years ago in Boise by former Meridian Warrior and Kellogg Wildcats head boys basketball coach Donnie Haynes. He coached us for one afternoon, concluding with a talk about basketball and how to get better.

Zagco has never been worked out harder by anyone. It was a gut busting practice of bizzare exercises that most young kids just don't do. He had us doing things with our abs and core that should be illegal. Several kids gave up and/or puked. He walked up and down every aisle, talking to the kids and making sure their form was correct. He was firm, but fair. You trusted him, and you did not want to disappoint him. He was extremely interesting to hear, even motivational. He was the kinda guy you wanted to follow.

Expect a certain segment of Indiana boosters to make a push to re-hire Red Sweater. Not saying that the AD will cave in, but there will be a push. I'm serious.
