Jim RacaltoFormer Indiana basketball coach Bobby Knight has a rich history of being a legend among the elite coaching ranks. He also has a rich history of being a borderline nutcase. Among other things, Knight has put his hands on players numerous times and bench chairs are deathly afraid of him. Well, Knight now has a job as an ESPN analyst calling college ball games, so it was only a matter of time before Knight found himself in the booth during an Indiana game. He did not disappoint. What looked like just another routine easy win for the pre-season #1 Hoosiers over Georgia turned into another unfiltered Bobby Knight moment when he threatened to shoot one of Georgia’s player if he took another three point shot. Knight said: ”I’m not sure there’s anything I like less in basketball than one pass and a 3-point shot.” Okay, no big deal right? Then, Georgia forward Nemanja Djuricic took a three pointer that he probably shouldn’t have, and that pissed Bobby off: “The next time I saw Djuricic taking a three I think I would’ve shot him before he got the shot off.” This led to an uncomfortable silence in the booth for a few moments after the comment. Personally I think Knight is entertaining, but I am curious to see if ESPN takes any disciplinary action against Knight considering his history of not giving a sh*t.

It has been quite some time since we saw the old Bobby Knight. There were brushes of it, when the former Indiana Hoosiers basketball coach refused to refer to Kentucky by name, but that was child’s play compared to last night during ESPN’s broadcast of Indiana vs Georgia. The Indianapolis Star put together a string [...]

BROOKLYN — Indiana freshman Yogi Ferrell (14 points, four assists), senior Jordan Hulls (17 points, four steals) and sophomore Cody Zeller (17 points, eight rebounds) met with the media following the Hoosiers’ 82-72 overtime win over Georgetown in the Legends Classic at the Barclays Center on Tuesday night.
Watch and listen to what each player had to say in the embedded media players below:
BROOKLYN — Perhaps it was the travel or maybe it was playing in an NBA arena in the nation’s largest city, but Indiana got off to a very slow start on Monday evening at the Barclays Center against Georgia in the Legends Classic. Senior guard Jordan Hulls hit a 3-pointer to start the game, but the Hoosiers missed their next eleven from beyond the arc. IU was 8-of-25 (32 percent...
BROOKLYN — Indiana senior Jordan Hulls (14 points) and junior Victor Oladipo (15 points, seven rebounds) met with the media following Indiana’s 66-53 win over Georgia in the Legends Classic at the Barclays Center on Monday night.
Watch and listen to what both players had to say in the embedded media players below:
BROOKLYN — Thoughts on a 66-53 in over Georgia:
I. Here’s the reality of this one: Yes, it was ugly for the first 30 or so minutes, but Indiana’s final offensive surge to end the game made it respectable. The Hoosiers ended up shooting 51.5% on 2s and after starting out just 1-of-12 on 3-pointers, four late ones had them at 5-of-16 for the night (31.3%). That adds up to a...
