Bobby Knight worked a game with Brent Musburger last night, and before the game he and Brent decided to show illustrate how he used to argue calls at the Barn in Minnesota. Not only that but Musburger decided to even sport a sweater in honor of the General!
I guess that video wasn't the funniest thing, and that it's more of an excuse just to talk about Bob Knight the analyst. For some reason I find him boring on studio shows, but intriguing on actual games. His style is certainly not traditional, but he's so knowledgeable about the game that you hang on just about every word.
I thought it was an iffy decision at first, but after watching one of the games, it's one of the better moves ESPN has done in a good while. The only thing we didn't get from Knight though, was his true feelings about one of the teams he covered last night.
