ESPN, which sends out a press release about everything, definitely low-keyed this one. Knight’s name showed up on the announcer schedule for its upcoming games. Whoa, there’s “The General” under Indiana.
Obviously, this is highly significant. This is the first Indiana game Knight has done since leaving Bloomington.
Does this signal that Knight is ready to reconcile with the school after all these years? Will his next Hoosier game be in Assembly Hall? Imagine that scene.
It will be interesting to see how Shulman handles Knight through the telecast. How much will they get into his feelings for Indiana?
You know they definitely will follow his every word in Indiana. How big of a deal is this?
I think Terry Hutchens of the Indianapolis Star put it best in this tweet:
Bob Knight on the IU-Georgia telecast Monday night in NYC? And pigs have been spotted flying in downtown Indy, too.
