  1. I love Coach Knight, but folks need to realize that he’s never coming back to Bloomington. As AJ Guyton said last night on Twitter, “Some divorces are final.”

    Indiana University could purchase the rights to Mt Rushmore, replace Washington’s face with Knight’s and he still wouldn’t show up for that ceremony. So don’t expect that after anything being named after him on campus or a building giant statue will compel him to come home. Indiana’s Administrators can keep at this game and they’ll have to keep doing the missing man formation.

    It is sad, because we all know that Indiana University and her fans are the ones that suffer. The best you can hope for is for Knight to keep showing up to the occasional speech or breakfast off campus somewhere in the state.
