What a horses ass. I give credit to Howard Stern this morning for playing an uncensored obscenity filled tirade full of threats of violence toward his players. And that was old news. He slapped a player in the face yesterday and in classic fashion his school defended him. Shame on Texas Tech.
Get off your high-horse. Yes, we know that Bobby has some problems with his anger management. But overall, he is a good coach who still puts academics ahead of athletics which, these days, is hard to find. And by the way, that was no slap in the face. He nudged him to get his attention AND both the player in question and his father agreed that it was not over the top and people overreacted to the whole thing. Not only that, but the player in question was too hard on himself and Knight did it to boost his confidence and get his focus back on the game instead of himself. AND the majority of America agreed that Knight was not in the wrong by almost 3-1 as reported on ESPN. And the only reason there is so much attention focused on Knight is because of his past. If this was any other coach, no one would take notice or care, nor say it was out of line.
So get your facts straight before you start attacking him and the school. I praise Texas Tech for not overreacting to the situation and blowing it out of proportion like you have done.
P.S.- Howard is sooo 5-10 years ago. Yes, he used to be the king and all that, and I admire him for the roads that he opened up for others, but his material is old and weary. It's not even that funny anymore. Opie and Anthony are the new Howard.
