Lamar University head basketball coach Pat Knight layed in to his team at the press conference following their loss to Stephen F. Austin. Knight called out his seniors, saying:
I’m unhappy with these seniors, that’s what I’m unhappy with, it has nothing to do with X’s and O’s. We’ve got the worst group of seniors that I’ve ever been associated with… We’ve had problems with these guys off the court, on the court, classroom, drugs, I mean, being late for stuff, all that stuff correlates together if you’re going to win games.
People will compare this rant to the many rants Pat Knight’s father, Bob Knight, went on. Similar, maybe, but not the same. I don’t remember Bob Knight ripping a group of players this harshly without it being somewhat comical. There was nothing intentionally comical about Pat Knight’s rverbal assault on his seniors.
