In his role as an ESPN analyst, ex-Indiana coach Bobby Knight spent most of the season ignoring Kentucky. He failed to list them among his weekly list of America’s five best teams. He would call them “that team from the SEC” until finally cracking and calling them by name late in the year.
Speaking to a group of Indiana fans this weekend, Knight fired another shot at the Wildcats, specifically at their fans:
“Kentucky managed to get irritated over that because I mentioned them as the SEC team rather than Kentucky. Well, they might not have known that Kentucky was in the SEC. I thought that was always a possibility with them.”
Knight also called the current one-and-done rule — which has so benefited the Cats — a “disgrace.”
Whenever I see or hear Knight three words come to mind regardless of what he’s saying or doing: Miserable Old Coot.
