Exciting news for all you Bob Knight acolytes out there, those of you whose avowed allegiance to IU ended the day Knight was fired back in 2000:
The General's comin' to take your money!
Yes, on May 3, at Castleton Square in Indianapolis, Coach will be on hand to sign autographs for the faithful. All it will cost the faithful is $89 a head.
Oh, and another $25 if you want the to get moved to the front of the line.
Oh, and another $25 if you want a personal inscription (up to FIVE, count 'em FIVE words!)
So that's $139, plus tax, to get your personal moment with Coach, who would no doubt appreciate it if you didn't wear any IU gear. After all, he's more partial to Purdue black-and-gold these days.
This after Knight came back to Indiana to schmooze the Purdue people at an event with his old nemesis Gene Keady, a bit of in-your-face screw-you to IU Nation that should have finally ended whatever misplaced affection the Knight worshippers still hold for the man. After all, the Purdue event came within a month of Knight snubbing the celebration in Assembly Hall of his greatest team, the 1976 undefeated national champion Hoosiers.
Practically everyone with a connection to that team was there, and the Hall poured out its love on them. Knight not only wasn't there to partake (and there's no reason to believe he wouldn't have received the most thunderous greeting of them all), he never even responded to Indiana's invitation.
After which he twisted the knife by hobnobbing with Boilers.
Now he's back for your cash, IU/Bobbyhead Nation.
