With the news of Bobby Knight walking away from his coaching gig at Texas Tech, I thought the best way to honor the coach is by highlighting some of his finest moments.
Of course, these have nothing to do with his 902 wins and three NCAA championships.
Rubbing glass to predict the future
Knight: Disappointed - This one starts off innocently enough. I can only imagine what it must have been like to interview this guy. After asking him a question, I'm sure interviewers would spend the first few seconds of Knight's response bracing for a smartass answer, or some kind of meltdown. This interviewer probably felt great during the first few seconds of this response. Then things went downhill, quickly. (NSFW)
Bunker Mentality - Here's Bobby enjoying a nice, quiet day on the golf course, trying to hit a nice bunker shot for a golf instruction video. I'm sure the instructor was wishing he had a helmet on by the 3rd or 4th bad shot.
Halftime encouragment speech - either that, or this is Bobby Knight's audition for the role of Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Full Metal Jacket. (Ummm, NSFW)
More golf outtakes (Yeah, it's NSFW)
