Bobby Knight Will Return...With Dramatic Music!!!
I wasn't going to make a big deal out of it when they did it last week. After all, it was Bobby Knight's first few days with ESPN and they wanted to promote that he was there and make a big splash. They wanted to hook you and get you to tune in for his next appearance. But doing it again today, with the dramatic music and a montage of his quotes, is just a little ridiculous. I wish I could find the video link but unfortunately the web's video-encyclopedia, YouTube, has nothing for me. Hopefully I'll be able to find a link and update this post rather quickly. Anyway, I really don't like continually bashing ESPN but they make it so easy. The network is more about the network than the sports it covers. As I've said before, there are a lot of good personalities on ESPN and this decision, at least, had nothing to do with the on-air people. I hope.
