Last night’s Kentucky vs. Vanderbilt game ended in a cloud of controversy. With about :17 seconds left in the game and Kentucky clinging to a three point lead, UK forward Nerlens Noel took a floater in the lane. It appeared to be a pretty clear shot clock violation, but officials counted the basket anyways.
Vandy coach Kevin Stallings went nuts on the officials and Bobby Knight, who was doing color commentary, got very confused.
At around the 1:00 minute mark of the video, Knight starts rambling about numbers and the game clock and the shot clock and it is very evident he has literally no idea what is going on. Kentucky held on to win 60-58 but the really story here is how does ESPN have a man who appears to be senile calling a prime-time Thursday night game?

Dear Jesus. Stay away from the sec and invest in an old folks retirement village

Bobby Knight and Rece Davis called the Vanderbilt and Kentucky men’s basketball game last night on ESPN and the ending was baffling for the former Indiana basketball coach. Bobby was having a hard time telling the difference between the game clock and the shot clock in reference to Nerlens Noel’s made bucket with 17.3 seconds left. It was very clear that the clock hit zero,...

Saturday morning Kyle Meadows had seen enough to know his future would be as a member of the Kentucky Wildcats. FOXSportsNEXT.com spoke with Lakota West head coach Larry Cox for the latest.
Former Indiana and Texas Tech head coach Bobby Knight once had one of the most incredible and knowledgable basketball minds around.
Through age and sure attrition, Knight has lost a little bit as he’s gotten older, but ESPN still chooses to use him as an announcer during the college basketball season.
In the video, the ref blew a call during the final seconds of the Kentucky vs...
The last time the Vanderbilt Commodores played the Kentucky Wildcats, they won the SEC Basketball Tournament for the second time in school history. Thursday night's clash in Nashville won't make history, but it could change the trajectory of the 2012-2013 season.
