ANOTHER KNIGHT, ANOTHER BLOWUP
A portion of Pat Knight's postgame press conference, which was a beauty after Centenary rallied from 14 down in the second half to defeat Texas Tech.
“If people want me to say, ‘Hey, I can’t coach, it’s my fault – (expletive) it.' I can’t (expletive) coach. It’s my fault, just blame it on me, I just don’t care. It’s a weird situation. I’m pissed about a lot of things: The situation I was thrown into and the way the team came out.
I just say (Expletive) it. If people want to write that I can’t coach, write it. It’s a surreal situation to be in.”TEXAS TECH SAYS KNIGHT FELL ILL
“He’s just wore out. Tim (Knight’s son) took him to rest and he’ll meet the team at the airport. “He’s perfectly fine and there is no medical emergency.”
The Red Raiders played in Anchorage, Alaska, during the Great Alaska Shootout from Nov. 22-24.
Believe what you will.KNIGHT HAS LEFT THE BUILDING
Bobby Knight is gone. Supposedly.
After his confrontation with the Centenary fans, Bobby Knight is no where to be seen.
I didn't agree with the student's comment. And I don't agree with Knight leaving his team to fend for itself in the second half.HOUSTON, WE HAD A CONFRONTATION
Well, some heckling is all well and good, but leave it to the handful of Centenary students to take it too far.
As Bobby Knight walked off the court at halftime and past the Centenary student section, a student yelled, "Oh (expletive), he has a gun."
Knight stopped and went over to the student section to explain to them how they should be a bit more respectful for the Red Raiders making the trip.
"We're the only school in the (Big 12) conference that would make a road trip here," Knight said.
He was actually calm and didn't go off on the student like many high-strung coaches would have.
Bad taste Centenary.
Knight's right.TECH TAKES FIRST LEAD OF GAME
5:47 left in the first half and the Knights have a 27-25 advantage.MINOR BLOW-UP
Knight wasn't happy Centenary wasn't hit with a 5-second violation, so Knight jumped off the bench and got in the face of the closest official. Nothing big, just normal coach-ref jabber.KNIGHT GETTING AGITATED
With Centenary leading 11-6, Bobby Knight has finally come out of his seat, and he's about to become unglued.WHERE'S YOUR SHOTGUN?
Just before tip off, finally, a few Centenary students begin a chance of, "Where's your shotgun?"
It's about time.KNIGHT'S COURTSIDE
Knight and Rob Flaska are chatting it up near Texas Tech's bench. After a short conversation, Knight is sitting down. Major drama here at CenturyTel Center.
The fans in attendance -- the few there are -- didnt have much to say to the legendary coach as he walked onto the floor. No chirping? Come on folks, it's not like there isn't any material with which to work with.NO SIGN YET
With 10 minutes until the tip, Bobby Knight as yet to make an appearance on the CTC floor. That is not unusual, Centenary head coach Rob Flaska has been out of sight, too.WHAT UP KNIGHT
Not many college basketball coaches deserve a live game blog, but Bobby Knight is a special guy. I'm at CenturyTel Center and will provide live coverage of Bobby Knight's expected antics as the Texas Tech Red Raiders will tip it against Centenary College at 5:30 p.m.
