Just got an alert on my phone. Not sure how, when or why.

Wow..

He was a jerk, but a hell of a coach (who just couldn't adjust to the changing dynamics of players)

You all usually write, “John Doe, RIP” when someone dies!

He was videotaped choking a player during practice, “jerk” doesn’t quite describe it…

LOL, the WaPo closed the comments section on his obit in less than a hour because Knight was getting hammered.

A man/child given free reign by his university, one who was a tactical wizard but also an abusive bully.

I don't think it's a coincidence that he cut his teeth in coaching at West Point...

I actually spoke to him on the phone once. My freshman year in college, I lived in a dorm. Each floor was broken into 4 groups of 12 rooms. The group next to mine was where pretty much all of our basketball team lived. We had a guy on our team who almost made the 1984 Olympic team (he was one of the last 2 to be cut).

Anyway, there was a payphone in the hallway near my room. One night, the phone was ringing, and I answered it. The voice on the other end asked for this player. I went to his room, but he wasn't there. I asked if he wanted to leave a message. He said, "Yeah, this is Coach Knight. Please have him call me." Of course, I told all of my friends that I had spoken to him.

Hey, if death is inevitable, you should just lie back and enjoy it!

Bobby Knight's coaching summary: It's pretty interesting how much one can get away with if the team is winning.

The West Point motto and dedication to service "Duty, Honor, Country" - and the ideals of the seven Army Values: loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage, would seem to fly in the face of Knight's coaching lifetime.
