It was SO much more than that. It was his degradation of people. It was his rape comments. It was his outlook that he was just better. This man was/is a garbage human being.So beloved at Indiana so hated everywhere else. I know part of that was his winning a ton of games but I think you can be a coach and not be hated by fans of other teams.
It may have been criminal of not for Jerrance Howard snatching the chair out of his hands."Well, just absolutely sickening, unbelievable. The 40 years I’m on TV, I haven’t seen anything like that, unless you go to the NBA and the Pistons’ brawl that took place at the Palace. I think there’s no doubt in my mind that De Sousa never, ever should put a uniform on in college basketball again. He’s holding a chair. I mean, that’s criminal! He’s going to hurt somebody!"
- Dick Vitale not on the General Robert Montgomery Knight
Times have changed. Knight never did.I’m all for men having long hair, wearing earrings, and dressing flamboyantly. Yessiree...dress however you feel most comfortable and act according to your impulses. Unless you want to play basketball at the University of Indiana...here we’re doing my thing.
