In the Loop

Some weird, weird moments with Bobby Knight

Posted at 2:30 PM on January 7, 2008 by Jeff Horwich

The Texas Tech coach brings his 21-month-old grandson to his post-game press conference. The headline is the expletive he lets fly with the kid sitting right in front of him (in response to some bland softball about "momentum").

But the bigger curiosity to me is just the utter awkwardness of the entire episode, born of his evident contempt for the press. Notice how totally silent the reporters are while Knight is playing his games. They are not digging the show.
