Bob Knight Resigns From Texas Tech

There are 156 comments on the CBS 2 - KCAL 9 story from Feb 4, 2008, titled Bob Knight Resigns From Texas Tech. In it, CBS 2 - KCAL 9 reports that:

Bob Knight resigned Monday at Texas Tech, a stunning midseason move by the winningest men's coach in major college basketball.

Known as much for his fiery temper as his basketball brilliance, Knight gave no hint a change was coming. He will be replaced by his son, Pat, a Red Raiders assistant.

Chris Cook, a spokesman for athletic director Gerald Myers, confirmed the resignation, which was first reported by the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.

In September, Knight signed a three-year contract extension that runs through the 2011-12 season. In 2005, Pat Knight was appointed his father's successor. Read more

well, i beg to differ, i find it hard to believe that the air force lowers their standards... if i didn't see proof, i would never believe it. i might believe it about the army.
you previously wrote you saw many cases of sexual harrassment by females and hardly ever by men in the military, surely you had that backwards, didn't you?
"nubbins b fairly good"

"Big Dan", he has everything backwards.

I think they are basically very similar but I have formed an impression through time and experience. My view of the services in order of demand for quality/higher qualifications...

Navy
Airforce
Marines
Army

(If you disagree please don't blow a circuit...remember it's MY impression. You are more than welcome to your own.)

No i didn't have it backwards, I was actually sexually Harrassed by my LPO. She was bad about it. I didn't turn her in though, I enjoyed the BJ. She was written up a couple of times but nothing was ever done. On the other hand I seen a guy with 18 and a half years of service dishonorably discharged because of a lie. I say it was a lie because she admitted it to me and when I took that forward nothing was done to reverse it. It was common for young women to just say "sexual harrassment" or threaten it when they were told to do something that they didn't want to or asigned somewhere they didn't want to be. So usually what happened was a guy that was senior ended up doing a job that someone Jr. should have been doing. Then there is the whole social promotion thing. I was passed over in 94 for OCS and a female with lower evals, SAT and advancement scores got the Billet. She had even been to Captains Mass the year before. I love my time in the Military but once "Pass the Cigar" Clinton(here he was sexually harrassing, yet hammering senior military members for lessor) started running things, it became a big social experiment. You don't experiment with the military. The is a reason things are done the way they are done, it is because tried a true methods should only be trusted.

the probably with society today is that we have girly men like you around. Always agreeing with women, even when they are wrong. You are obviously a follower.

Thank and admire you for your service. Sorry you had disappointments.
I Spent some tine in the military, just a grunt. Great expearience. Finished serving, finished college and in tine became a sales manager. My expearience both males and females are quilty of "sexual harrassment" but it's far more likely males are the perpetrators.
Look in the mirroe you may see a "girly man"!!! my life has been blessed by wonderful females, my wife of nearly 44 years. We are partners, neither followers, we communicate and come to an agreement. Niether of us tries to dominate. Thats bad? That makes me a "girly man"? Also have 2 daughters and 4 grandaughters great folks.
By your posts I would guess, and it is only a guess, females are a problem for you. For me females are a boon.
Peace

You dream big!!!

You do not give a shit. Is that why your bulletin board says "something smells funny"?
It seems like the "studs" with the biggest mouths get little and eat the most shit. They brag/lie a lot about their conquests and succeed nowhere.
Enjoy your dreams, they are probobly better than nothing.

Now there you went and made me think you are an alright guy. You're right about not taking this place seriously - I was thinking earlier this morning that if everyone from Topix showed up in one place armed to the teeth it would be like a war scene from Braveheart. LOL!

Most would be a lot less confrontational on here. Probably not me, I can be charming at times but I think I am a jerk deep down. Then again, I might be making up crap....that is the beauty of it all. To be honest I am honest, that is my biggest fault.
