    Bob knight should either go back to coaching or take a crash course in broadcasting (requiring him to stay off the air until he learns the huge difference between calling a game and coaching a game. In tonights game between Ku &am; Texas A&M he kept finding fault with KU’s defense while they were already recovering and making a big offensive play on the other end of the court. Sort of messed with the flow, let alone the action KU kept pushing from all their players, which Knight couldn’t keep up with.

    Knight’s biggest problem is probably being uncoachable. For the last 30 years, he’s been told he’d be “a natural” for broadcasting (Feinstein described how he flirted with joining CBS in the mid-’80s) because he’s smart and articulate. Unfortunately, those qualities alone do not a broadcaster make. It also takes preparation and discipline; I see signs of neither in Knight’s work and, — given his status as a “legend” — I wonder how much time ESPN honchos spend with Knight critiquing his work. At most, at least from what I’ve seen, they’ve probably told him to cut down on the fishing stories — but still haven’t had much effect on the fundamental aspects of the job.

    This is, admittedly, speculation. However, with many other players and coaches who have gone into broadcasting, palpable — in some cases, rapid — improvement is discernable. Not so with Knight, who certainly has the intelligence to progress — but may not feel it’s necessary (or may think he’s already on the Al Maguire or Billy Packer level).

    As you can see Morris gives up the baseline here.

    why do you hate bobby knight so much hall?
    This guy is a coach…he’s not a broadcaster.
    But he does have some interesting things to
    say about the game. You took some of his
    comments out of context here which made then
    seem disjointed but I can guarantee you that
    espn with the millions they’ve got invested
    in college basketball know what they are doing.
    If knight was turning off viewers then I’m
    sure theyd make adjustments. Oh…by the way…
    the ratings for bobbys games are THRU THE ROOF.

    question…what happens to ku when they go
    on the road in the ncaa tourney and play
    teams much much better than texas (fading)..
    texas am (not really a top 25 team)…
    colorado (a mess)…and teams much better
    than the big 12 teams they are beating now.
    it will be interesting to see how the big
    12 teams do in the tourney and how
    mu does in the nit.

    What happens to kansass when they 5 on 5 basketball in the tourney? They’ve become so used to having the 8 on 5 advantage with the Big XII refs that they may not be able to handle a ref crew that doesn’t sit in Bill Self’s back pocket

    You don’t go on the road in Tourney….A&M would of beaten you pick it Nova,Syrc,KY, last night. It was a good ball game..A&M lost their legs last 3 minutes like so many that play KU.

    Knight would be better if they just let him be Bobby— a screaming-lunatic-certifiable-maniac. He looks medicated…

    Turgeon wasn’t whining. A&M did get jobbed. How Cole Aldrich has two fouls for the game is beyond me. He should have had three in the first half, including the mauling of Dash Harris. Everyone in the country could see that, along with the blown goal tending call (not even close) at a key point late in the game. You can also throw in the technical on Turner. I haven’t seen that call all season and I’ve seen Jayhawks (and yes, other Aggies) guilty of much worse. Pathetic.

    greg…turn off the tv…turn on the radio
    and listen to the ku radio broadcast.
    you’re bagging of knight and mus is getting
    and yes…if anyone has the refs on their side
    its self…he’s a master..but watch him this
    year on the bench..he’s screaming/yelling/
    more than any other year.
    I have this belief that he’s under pressure to
    win it all..anything less and he’s going to
    bolt bto the nba…too much money…easier
    schedule..no recruiting..easier life….what
    do you think…lots of great openings and
    larry brown will help him get the job.
    also. comeing out of lawrence…recruiting
    is defintely down…is self burning out?

    KU wasn’t relieved. they seized that game with stifling defense down the stretch. if that game plays 5 more minutes, KU pulls away by more.

    GHall: No need to ever mention women’s basketball on here again. I thought we were talking about things people care about. And don’t try to say b/c espn crammed it at us during that game that it’s relevant. Smart viewers dvr’ed and flew right thru that trash.

    Jojo STFU your opinion doesn’t count until you become a man and step up to the plate. Also Coach Knight is not coaching…he’s broadcasting…so it might be nice if he knew how to do that. Squirrel bait.

    Greg keep up the good work. I don’t mind reading about how bad Bobby Knight is. This is a sports blog and what else are you supposed to write about? Scott Pollard getting drunk on the radio while at the Salty Iguana?

    I’m a KU fan and I couldn’t believe they let Sherron and Cole off after Dash Harris went down. And the hanging on the rim Technical was ridiculous. I thought the goaltending call was fine.

    KU will get the occasional call their way, but there are plenty that go against them. There were a few charges missed and a phantom call on Marcus Morris as well.

    This team is good and it’s not because of the refs.

    Wow. How bad have the comments gotten around here? What a fall.

    That’s why so many people like Dimebag, Olathe Cat, Luther, Honeybaked, Hippity Hop and many others have left. You got one guy that wants to make it all about him and attack everyone. Then you got him getting his rear kicked by those that fight back. Not a lot of fun. Get sick of all the gay junk. Pretty juvenile.
