Bobby Knight Joins the Hated Press

I couldn't possibly say this any better than FOX Sports' Kevin Hench:

Oh, joy. The guy who could delight himself with juvenile and profane poetry about the press corps has joined the media. For a guy who occasionally shoots his hunting partners or assaults his beloved sons, I guess this latest spasm of schizophrenia, joining his most despised institution, should come as no surprise. Despite his avowed hatred of the press — or maybe because of it — ESPN has hired Bobby Knight as a studio analyst for the NCAA tournament. Here's hoping His Almighty Blowhardness doesn't take screen time away from the insightful — and, yes, affable — Tom Brennan and Doug Gottlieb.
I've never been one of the people who could justify Knight's puerile behavior with the "tough love" argument--and I do really enjoy Doug Gottlieb's commentary (former OK-State point guard)--so I'm with Kevin Hench, hoping I don't have to see too much of Knight's choleric mug during the tourney.

I could never understand what kind of parent would send their kid to play for Bobby Knight. I still don't understand.
