    Starts next week, but today one of it's most successful, and most controversial coaches passed away

    Robert Montgomery Knight.

    Bob Knight, the sixth-winningest coach in Division I men's college basketball history whose Hall of Fame career was highlighted by three national titles at Indiana -- one an undefeated season not since matched -- and countless on-court outbursts, died Wednesday, according to his family.

    Knight became the youngest coach at a Division I school in 1965 when he broke in at Army at 24. But he made his mark in 29 years at Indiana, including winning a school-record 661 games and reaching the NCAA tournament 24 times in 29 seasons. Knight's first NCAA title came in 1976 when Indiana went undefeated, a feat no team has accomplished since.

    In 1984, he coached the U.S. Olympic team to a gold medal in Los Angeles, the last American amateur team to claim Olympic gold. Knight won 20 or more games in 29 seasons, compiling a career record of 902-371.

    Knight was eventually forced out at Indiana in 2000 for violating a "zero tolerance" behavior policy by grabbing the arm of a freshman student who he said greeted him by his last name. It was the final transgression on a long list, which included his most infamous incident -- throwing a chair during a Purdue game -- and accusations of numerous physical confrontations.



    He was 83.

    It was a Twitter thing so maybe a lot of you aren’t on twitter so it won’t play.

    My Dad played football at Samford (it was called Howard College back then), as did Bobby Bowden.

    Yeah South Carolina really took it to the Irish and beat them thoroughly.

    The Men opened with a little easier opponent and won the 1st game nn the Shrewsberry era, beating Niagra.

    I saw the ND women's game. To use an analogy, it looked like " men playing boys ". They completely dominated the Irish physically.

    Consensus preseason #1, and reigning Nat'l Champion, LSU women, who has a loaded roster, lost handily to Colorado yesterday. UConn in '95 was the last preseason #1 to lose their opening game.

    #5 Michigan State lost to big underdog James Madison at home. The game was supposedly scheduled because his nephew is and assistant coach for JMU.

    According to ESPN Stats & Information research, Michigan State is the first Associated Press top-5 team to lose its season opener at home against an unranked opponent since Kentucky lost at home to Western Kentucky in 2001. Also, Izzo entered Monday's game with a 21-7 record in season openers, per Michigan State.

    A shocker for sure Terry. Ohio State really had to mount a late rally to beat Oakland here at home last night, not the magnitude of the Spartan defeat, but one never knows anymore. We will face Texas A & M here friday night. I am sure Scott is licking his chops for an easy victory.;)

    You are a funny man Don... I know what you're up to tho!
    I expect the Aggies to be run out of the gym by a veritable hail storm of 3's.
    The Aggies have been terrible at defending the long shot... they basically ignore them.

    Scott, as Don as suggested, ignoring them would seem to be the proper course of action here

    Watched a great women's basketball game between Iowa and Va.Tech in a neutral site game with 16K fans. But Catlin Clark started the way she left off last season. Scored 40+ points. Hawkeyes win a close one 80-76.

    Well poop, I thought the game was tonight.
    I see we did manage to dodge my predicted loss to the 3 pointer barage...
    Oddly... ESPN only has highlights of OSU plays.
    Were the Aggies actually there? :p
