Update: On this Flashback Friday, Bob Knight told Dan Patrick in a radio interview this morning that he will never return to Indiana University. He even went so far as to say that he hopes all the administrators he had issues with are all dead.

In other words, Bob Knight comes off as a real dickhole, just as you might expect.

The win was just icing on the cake for a great day in Buckeyeland. THE Ohio State University stopped to honor their rich basketball history at halftime, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the greatest Buckeye team to ever lace up high tops: the 1960 National Champions.
